4 down, 46 to go!

A year ago I finally turned aspiration into action. And after 25 years of Reggae Radio decided it was time for the Smile Jamaica blog. One more guy on the Internet with an opinion.

I started it out with the 20 Days of Cannabis Service Month. But it mainly became a forum to upload the Smile Jamaica Playlists and links to the Smile Jamaica Show Archives Podcasts. Or Ark-Ives as I call it. As in Black Ark – Lee “Scratch” Perry.

I quickly developed the system of cutting up 3 hours of Radio sound into soundbytes, clips and Reggae History Lessons. Upload the .mp3s. Add some photos and captions. How do you liven up a long list of songs? Week after week. Year after year for a quarter century.

So a year later, I have a crocus bag full of Cannabis Soundbytes. The Seven Leaf Symphony.

<Cannabis History Reggae Lesson – Crocus Bag; 16 sec.>

download (73)
Filled this crocus bag with about a 100 Seven Leaf sound bytes over the past year on the Smile Jamaica blog

So for the 4:20 Weekend, I am going to string a whole heap of air checks from Smile Jamaica that talk about the Seven Leaf:

Read your Bible: 30 sec.

The Holy Bible. For reading not rolling

Roll a lickle spliff with di papyrus

Hey Thoth. You have any papyrus so we can smoke a little Sensimenia on our trip to Mesopotamia?

Smile Jamaica – Healing of the Nations (Revelations 22: 2); 30 sec.

Revelation  22:2. New Testament

It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.

Ergo, partake of the Seven Leaf with a fresh crop each month for the healing of the nation. Come together as a community in harmony
