smile Jamaica Ark-Ives July 10, 2021 – Unidentified Aerial Phemonena a Gwaan!

Greetings,

Let’s just launch (pun intended) into the Pentagon admitted UFO’s. I mean Unidentified Aerial Phenomena

Pentagon releases Unidentified Aerial Phenomena videos

These videos by our best fighter pilots were recorded with Alien technology: Forward Looking Infrared Radar. Naked to the human eye. Cloaked just like Star Trek. But they were there.

The Pentagon vetted these videos for public release and Tom DeLonge of Blink-182 issued them as part of his Astro-non-profit: To the Stars – Academy of Arts & Science

  • Gimbal video – In 2015 the USS Roosevelt encountered a UAP which when the FA 18 Hornet pilot locked on darted horizontally at speeds that would rip a pilot’s spine through his back hole.
  • Tic Tac video – In 2004 the USS Nimitz off San Diego captured footage of an oblong UAP (shaped like the breath mint). Once the fighter pilot locks on for an extended length the Tic Tac zooms horizontally at breakneck speed.
  • Go Fast – In 2015 the USS Roosevelt; of the eastern seaboard near Florida. You hear them exclaim, “what is that thing?”

There are no explanations for these kinds of speed achieved. Neither the Russians, nor the Chinese have this flight capability. Pilots could not sustain the G force of the acceleration. Drone technology is not that advanced.

I suspect the Navy released these as the usual “we’re falling behind Alien weaponization, so give us even more money.”

How it must feel for the most advanced Navy on the planet to be helpless to a swarm of UAP’s

USS Omaha: (2019); Off the coast of San Diego

I’m more of an Ancient Astronaut Theorist (Sumerian “sky gods” as interplanetary travellers), but for modern UAP/UFO enthusiasts, be sure to watch two programs

Unidentified – With guys like Lu Elizondo (part of the UAP military investigation force funded by Congress), Tom DeLonge, Bob Bigelow (aerospace cut out for the US military in private space development)

Unidentified – Inside Amerca’s UFO investigation

The Discovery channel did a 3 hour panel show called UFOs Declassified. Interviews with reporter George Knapp, who outed Area 51, Nick Pope who headed up the UK’s UFO investigations and several physicists and deep state spooks working this territory.

UFOs Declassified Live

Biggest take away? These UAPs travel at G forces of up to 5000 G. Human pilots can only with stand up to 9 G, for a limited time. So whatever is buzzing us. It ain’t human….

And why not read for yourself what Congress wrote. 22 million gets you 9 pages. That’s pretty good for the wasteful government!

So in conclusion, what does this have to do with Reggae music, Smile Jamaica and community radio?

Nothing. I just wanted to celebrate the Roswell NM UFO crash the Bobbylon way: UFO songs, UFO movie trailers, UFO soundbytes.

A few days later the Air Force walked back Flying Saucers to a bullshit weather balloon explanation. Pathetic!

My Roswell connection. My brother in law used to sell high tech pipe in New Mexico. Roswell was a territory. He was having lunch with a client and just curiously asked, “what’s the deal with the UFO crash.”

The crusty old rancher he was having lunch with said that the local coroner was visited by the Air Force and asked to bring 3 child size coffins to the Air Field. The rancher said that he was no tin foil hatter and total straight shooter.

That’s all the proof I need to know that Aliens are here! Aliens are coming!

Richard Nixon showed 50’s comedian and UFO buff Jackie Gleason the Alien corpses downed at Roswell

There ain’t nothing we can do to stop them coming. We are like bugs to them. In return for Alien tech like FLIR, velcro, Teflon, stealth flight, GPS and the drink Tang, they probe a few of us and mutilate some cattle.

Alien technology

If they decide we are a menace, and go for the Alien invasion, here is my advice for the last days…

Good luck humans!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives June 5, 2021 – Beware the Mainstreaming of UFO’s!

Because they’re here! And they are coming!

Greetings,

You heard it here first….on a community radio Reggae program of all places!

On June 25, 2021, Congress is going  to announce a reckoning on UFO’s and their obvious legitimacy.

No more bullshit about weather balloons,  swamp gas or ball lightning.

The gaslighting ends and the truth will emerge. Selah!

Doesn’t get any more mainstream than USA Today

Joe Rogan doesn’t scoff!

Ever since Pres. Eisenhower was whisked up into a space craft in 1954, the American government has known and held back the truth. UFO’s piloted by Extra Terrestrials have emerged since the world achieved nuclear weapons.

Apparently, no more lame denials. Prepare yourself that we are not alone.

What’s that you say? Another tin foil conspiracy from binging on Ancient Aliens eps during the Covid Lockdown?

Au contraire. How about the Washington Post.   

Ike was supposed to go golfing and then slipped his security detail. He went up into an alien spacecraft and signed an intergalactic treaty.  He claimed to have had a “dental emergency”. Why no Secret Service?

Basically in return for advanced technology like velcro, teflon,  GPS, aerial stealth/anti-radar and Tang, the aliens would have free range to probe (humans) and mutilate (cattle).

Alien technology

I ‘n’ I was getting cross eyed with my bredrin Aquaboy and he mentioned an article in The New Yorker, of all places: The U.FO. Papers

Here is the teaser on the cover:

For decades, believers have felt that evidence of alien visitations has been dismissed by the U.S. government. With formation of an official task force, is the Pentagon taking flying saucers seriously?

It is basically the story of UFO investigator Leslie Kean and her trials and tribulations sifting out the unexplained from the hoaxes and disinformation. How the Pentagon resisted any Congressional oversight and tried to quash the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena* being reported and filmed with alien, infrared technology, by US Naval Pilots.

* Unidentified Flying Objects

UFO researcher Leslie Kean

Called Tic Tacs, from the capsule shaped breath mint, the rate of speeds these crafts could achieve would have sucked a human pilot’s spine out of his asshole. Now that’ a probin’!

 

The geriatrics at 60 Minutes did a UAP study.  British paper, the Telegraph, has also done stories. But hang on a second.

I think it was either Bob Marley or Woody Allen who said that “I ‘n’ I don’t want to be in a club that would have me as a member.”

Now that UAPhoria(?). Nah, now that UFOria is mainstream. When even the old codgers who watch 60 Minutes are coming aboard, I’m suspicious.

RT is a regular source I ‘n’ I go to for Alien runnings. Maybe because Russia’s leader looks like an alien: Vladimir Putin.

Australian blogger, Caitlin Johnstone, offers a caution.

The crescendo of UAP/UFO legitimacy has an ulterior motive. It is to show that the American military is incapable of defending us from these Tic Tacs and thus needs trillions more for weapons development.

Washington Post, Pravda on the Potomac, and all the rest love war. Congress loves military aid to their districts.  If the New York Times is for it, you should scoff. Their admission of alien space craft has more to do with China and Russia.

Wars and rumors of war. Dempublican or Republicrat, it never ends. As Keith Poppin laments, “Same Things For Breakfast”

And as I ‘n’ I read in the New Yorker article. All the discussion was on the crafts themselves. Not who or what is behind piloting these UAP’s. So I think that is what is being missed.

<Smile Jamaica: UFO’s and Christopher Columbus>

What is gonna happen when they touch down in our fields, parks and dispensaries? They are gonna drop down right on the White House lawn. And we will have to take it.

Are people gonna be fixated on the craft they arrived in? Do you think the Native Americans who greeted Columbus at Plymouth Rock in his three ships the Nino, Pinto and the Santa Clara*

*Listener emailed me who didn’t get my joke from Animal House: “Did America give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?”

Do you think the Taino tribe who first encountered Columbus in what is today the Bahamas were fixated on the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria – his three ships?

No, they were in wonderment at these strange men with four legs (on horseback) and wooly faced encased in a shiny shell.

Well, we better be ready for the same experience. “Who are these little green people with bulbous eyes, long fingers, and teardrop heads?”

Let us hope the Aliens are a tad more benevolent to the “natives” than the conquistadors were to the indigenous peoples of the New World.

Don’t forget, Eisenhower sold us out for probes and mutilations. Doesn’t bode well. For I’n’ I.

Let’s hope the Aliens are “probing” us not for malicious intent, but because of our weed.

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-bruary 20, 2021 – NASA vs. The God of Covid

NASA rover Perserverance lands on Mars to do battle with Nergal, the Sumerian God of Covid

Greetings,

Congratulations to NASA and the Jet Propulsion Lab. They landed their Perserverance rover on Mars and have been road  tripping across the red planet sending back data.

NASA rover successfully lands on Mars

From previous fly overs and images captured there are a lot of strange anthropomorphic sites on the surface of the planet.

Martian Stonehenge?
Martian bullfrog?
Martian fertility goddess?

The most famous image is at Cydonia: The Face on Mars.  In 1976, NASA’s Viking orbiter (couldn’t land a vehicle on the planet then) captured an image of a mesa with an obvious human face.

Cydonia – Rock face mesa (or temple?) on Mars. Not a trick of the light. Two eyes, bejeweled helmet, nose, two lips. Humanoid!

The unimaginative scoffers at NASA tried to write it off as a trick of the light and shadows. But another photo captured it with even more clarity.  Even after more pictures surfaced the agency still adheres to the notion Cydonia is an optical illusion.

Now is the time to put up or shut up. Send Perserverance to the base of the mesa shaped rock formation and let’s get a close up.

But that strategy is not without risk. Many of the Russian rovers who tried to map the surface were mysteriously fried and knocked out just to be a Martian junk yard.

Could it be the Martians don’t want to be found? Ancient Astronaut Theory says yes!

Marvin the Martian gives the hairy eyeball to NASA planetary exploration

<NASA on Mars! For how long? 45 sec.>

What do I think? Thanks for asking! Mars has always been associated as a war planet of hostile intent.

Mars gets its name from the Roman God of War. The reddish hue of the planet gives off a malevolent vibe down below on Earth. Hindus called the red planet Angakara after their God of War and the occult. Wikipedia mentions that In ancient China, the advent of Mars was taken as a portent for “bane, grief, war and murder”.

Angakara – Hindu God/ancient astronaut. Mars and the God of war

My hypothesis is this. Cydonia is a temple to the Sumerian God Nergal. Consulting multiple episodes of Ancient Aliens, reading the text  of my many Sumerian religion books (don’t call what came first mythology!), this is my analysis:

In the main 7 Ancient Astronaut pantheon of so-called Sumerian Gods, Nergal is the most malevolent. His planet is Mars.

Who is Nergal? The Greeks plagiarized him as Hades. God of the Underworld. Associated with fire, war, destruction, devastation, plagues, death. Pestilence. Consider him the God of Covid!

Nergal – Sumerian God of Death

<Nergal (Mars) – The God of Covid; 2 min 55 sec>

The Martians who worship him, do not want their temple at Cydonia defiled. They can see what happens when mankind discovers/invades. Ask the Mayans and Aztecs the tender kindness shown to them by Conquistadors four hundred years ago. They are  gonna protect what’s theirs. I don’t expect that cute little rover, Perserverance, to have a very long life.

Nergal on high alert since Trump created the Space Force

<Your Ace From Outer Space; 77 sec.>

China and Elon Musk are trying to get to Mars as well. I ‘n’ I play the song by Alpha Blondy “Interplanetary Revolution” on this Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive podcast. The Martians know we never come in peace and they will not allow Starbucks, McDonald’s or Amazon on the Red Planet. No strip mining for minerals for Iphones.

Heed my prophecy, this will lead to weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. And why does any of this matter? I ‘n’ I found a fresh stack of UFO tunes by Burning Spear, Alpha Blondy, Cornell Campbell and I ‘n’ I wanted to rinse them out on my typical UFOria sets on Smile Jamaica!

As I ‘n’ I always say: Look to the skies! Do not scoff!

Fly Me to the Moon? Mr. Spear needs to re-record as Fly Me to Mars

Reggae lost a giant this week. U Roy, age 78, joined Jah’s Heavenly Choir after a lifetime of diabetes. He wasn’t the first Jamaican to chant over Rock Steady riddims in the mid 60’s, but he was the most popular through his inventive lyrical style. He was the forefather to what came after: toasting (think Ranking Roger of the (English),  Beat), 70’s Reggae deejay chanters, dancehall ragga and especially hip hop and rap.

Many of the NYC hip hop originators like Kool Herc came from Jamaican emigrants who brought their record collections north from the Island. His records helped develop the most successful new music format since rock or soul. No U Roy, no Public Enemy, Jay Z or Snoop Dogg.

The last song on this Ark-ive podcast continues his origination: Your Ace From Space which led indirectly to Neil Armstrong skanking on the Moon a year later.

Now Bob Marley and Peter Tosh have someone to chant over their riddims in Jah’s abode.

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Jah-nuary 23, 2021: Oumuamua and UFO-ria!

Intergalactic artificial space visitor: Ouomuamua – Hawaiian for “probe”

Greetings,

I was reading RT earlier in the month and they are a good source of Extra Terrestrial runnings.

<Oumuamua and the Ancient Astronaut redemption>

They had an article regarding first proof of intergalactic visitation from outside our  Milky Way galaxy

Harvard astronomer says alien technology visited in 2017, may have been distant civilization’s trash

Now this isn’t coming from I ‘n’ I, your pothead Ancient Astronaut Theorist/Anunnaki enthusiast. It’s not coming from big haired Swiss Greek dude Giorgio.

You not down with Ancient Aliens on History Channel? Feel free to scoff. This is coming from Harvard University. Not some egghead in the Astronomy Department trying to make tenure.

This came from the Head of the Dept. himself, Prof. Avi Loeb.

The story is this:

Hawaii has the Haleakala Observatory. In early 2017, astronomers monitoring the feed saw a long cylindrical object pass by. The first time something crossed into our galaxy from beyond.

They named it Oumuamua which is Hawaiian for “scout”. I ‘n’ I watched enough John Wayne movies to know scouts were the ones who went out and reported on enemy movements.

Let’s call Oumuamua for what it really is: a probe. An advance craft seeking info throughout the skies and reporting back. Just like we have been doing since Carl Sagan was sending space probes, The Voyager 1977, into the outer reaches of our galaxy.

Carl Sagan believer in extraterrestrials until “they” threatened to take away his Cosmos TV show

But in alien pop culture, probe means this:

Everyone tends to think Flying Saucer, but just as prevalent are UFO’s shaped like cigars. Oumuamua is aerodynamic for long haul space probing…err, scouting.

In Prof. Loeb’s forthcoming book,  Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth, he describes why it’s not a comet or natural phenomenon:

“What would happen if a caveman saw a cellphone? He’s seen rocks all his life, and he would have thought it was just a shiny rock,”

Prof. Loeb’s observations:

  1. Oumuamua is a rare shape and was mistaken for a comet. The shape acts as a sun-sail which projects itself via sunlight energy.
  2. Unusual brightness for a celestial entity. 10x more than the usual asteroid or comet
  3. In addition to its blinding brightness, that brightness fluctuates unnaturally or predictably.
  4. Varying speeds and odd trajectory which suggests its own sort of post-gravitational acceleration when it should be decelerating as it moves away from our sun
  5. It could be a piece of space junk discarded by aliens like we have littered our galaxy with terrestrial made space material.

From the RT article: “The only way to look for [alien civilizations] is to look for their trash, like investigative journalists who look through celebrities’ trash,” Loeb said.

Terrestrial space junk littering the skies

 

Of course Prof. Loeb’s colleagues are giving the hairy eyeball to Oumuamua’s artificial bonafides and say it’s just a far travelling comet. One which does not have any water vapor tail.

And the scoffing begins with the same dismissive attitude as how humans built massive structures like the Great Pyramids, Puma Punku and Baalbek using stone and bone tools when massive cranes and 21st century technology could not rebuild those ancient wonders today.

Aliens took their tools with them when they left. Obviously.

More from RT:

Loeb has a simple response to those who deny potential new breakthroughs for fear of upending established conventions. “Reality is the one thing that never goes away, even if you ignore it,” he says.

I ‘n’ I don’t have a Ph.D. in Astronomy but that statement fits my personal philosophy of “your perception is not my reality!”

Prof. Avi Loeb, head of Harvard Astronomy Dept. Soon come on Ancient Aliens

And why does any of this matter? I ‘n’ I was in the mood to play some UFO Reggae

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives Jah-gust 1, 2020: 32 Years of Dead Media!

RIP – the Compact Disk: 1985-2019

 

Greetings,

Pity the Compact Disk. Gone the way of the 8-Track cartridge and cassette tape. Relegated to the dustbin of dead media formats: VHS tapes and soon come, DVDs.

Digital on your phone. Fetishization of vinyl, the hipster medium. (I ‘n’ I never lost  faith in vinyl, even when people told me that CDs were what’s happening.)

The shiny aluminum coaster thingees suffered the ignominious fate of being outsold by the black wax in 2019:

Vinyl Is Poised to Outsell CDs For the First Time Since 1986

<The CD is a relic; 17 sec.>

Bobbylon’s cratedigging autobiography:

  • CD player for Christmas 1985: Fisher brand. Only showed track number. Low frills deck from Montgomery Ward. Bozeman Montana record shops. Summer vacation to Edmonton, CA Summer ’86
Very first CD in what was to become the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives. Didn’t get the CD player til Xmas, 2 months later.
  • Moved to Salt Lake City, Utah Fall 1986 – Started adding CDs: Reggae, Blues, World, College Rock: from about a dozen great SLC record shops. (All but one out of business in 2020.)
Built my Reggae CD collection here. Smokey quit stocking Reggae b./c his shop was continually broken into to steal Reggae CDs…..gave I ‘n’ I the hairy eyeball afterward
  • Reggae fanatic; Oct. 1986-. I ‘n’ I had a pretty decent CD collection considering I had just moved from the rural Montana mountains. Dorms, Univ. of Utah. Met a Jewish upperclassman from Baltimore named Neil Cooperman.  His CD collection was incredible. This was at a time when major stars like Beatles, Stones, Marley had very little available on CD.

Neil and I would trade out disks like baseball cards. The U of U dorms were concrete bunkers. Neil had a top rank stereo, as did I. One day we were listening in his room.  He chose the disk that changed my life.

Black Uhuru – Anthem; 1 min. 20 sec.

1983 – Prince influence duly captured. From left to right: the Riddim Twins (Sly & Robbie)/ Puma Jones (dawta), Michael Rose (front man)

By then I ‘n’I had a nice little Reggae CD stash: Legalize It, No Nuclear War, Marley’s Uprising. Cliff, Toots, UB40 imports. Some grey market roots collections from Germany and Japan.

Neil started up Anthem on his NakamIchi with the Bose 301’s. When Anthem was recorded, 1983, Sly & Robbie were at the synth best. Worked with stalwarts like Bob Dylan, Grace Jones, Joan Armatrading. They added electronic drum and base to Reggae riddims.

80’s were all about synth drums. Everyone from the Stones to Springsteen were overdosing on amplified drum sound. When the lead off selection, What Is Life, built to the vox I ‘n’ I was staggered. This is what I have been looking for!

Music you felt, through the bass throb, as well as heard.

Michael Rose had an Afro-Arab vocal style that was aggressive, female harmonies from Puma Jones added to the militance. Sly & Robbie brought Jamaica to NY discos.

Militant roots: Michael Rose lead vox; Puma Jones & Duckie Simpson harmonies

Ka-boom! All my other genres receded to the background and I focused on building 80/20 into Reggae.

I ‘n’ I had the desire to binge as more Reggae cds hit the market, but disks were expensive. As much as $18.99 in ‘1987 dollars. (Probably 35 bucks today).

Meet the funder of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Ronald Wilson Reagan

  • Ronald (6)
  • Wilson (6)
  • Reagan (6)….as the Rastas would say. (35 sec.)

Back in the mid 80’s Pell Grants and Student Loans. Loans you had to pay back, grants were free and clear. I ‘n’ I would bank one of those checks and every summer from about 1987-1993. A couple New Year’s Eves. Time to feed the Reggae habit.

<Cratedigging with student loan cash>; 1 min. 27 sec.

I’m sure Pres. Reagan would give the screwface to my misuse of funds but in the end, I paid him back. I ‘n’ I like to joke: It took me 15 years to pay off my Reggae collection.

When I ‘n’ I had an aunt in SF and then Hayward, across the bay I would couch surf for two weeks:

Heading west on I-80: Sacramento, Reno,

San Fran, San Mateo, Mill Valley (across the Golden Gate), Oakland, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Hayward (East Bay).

When I didn’t have a relative to freeload, I would stay at the Travelodge: Columbus and Bay, near the Wharf. Literally across the street from Tower Records.

I ‘n’ I would scour the city or the hinterlands during the day, grab some dinner and then spend the evenings til closing in Tower Records (deceased 2006)

I ‘n’ I nearly cried when Tower Records went out of business mid 2000’s. 500 stores since 2008 Recession. How many more Covid?

The justification of any addict: How do I rationalize my consumption? In 1988 I ‘n’ I went from Reggae fan to the airwaves. With a radio show, I ‘n’ I can’t play the same thing twice. (Like a fashionista who wouldn’t be caught dead wearing the same outfit twice.)

Needed the Reggae Roadtrips for the masses on the radio. When I ‘n’ I started 3 0’Clock Roadblock – It was 3-6 AM Sunday Nights/Mondays.

Probably spent more dollars than ever had listeners: cab drivers, 7-11 workers and insomniacs.

But when I ‘n’ I hit “prime time” – Saturday afternoons: Smile Jamaica. Rationalization became justification.

Was it worth it? 32 years of Reggae CDs. 32 Years of Reggae Vinyl.

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-ly 4, 2020: Ancient Astronaut Theorists 17, Scoffers 0

 

Greetings,

Here’s hoping you had a pandemically correct 4th of July. It’s okay to be paranoid, they are watching  if you didn’t!

Do you know what else happened around the 4th of July? 1947? The Alien crash at Roswell, New Mexico.

Roswell is the air field that delivered the atomic bombs that destroyed Jah-pon. Created at Los Alamos in New Mexico. Do you think it is a coincidence that the ground zero for nuclear weaponry was “probed” (pun intended) by extra terrestrial watchers?

Sometime in late June 1947 a ranch foreman in the rural scrub land around the Roswell Army Air Field, named Brazel collected debris, that was non-earth metals in origin.  Ultimately, he delivered the pieces to the Army.

On July 8, 1947 the local paper, the Roswell Record, published a statement from the Army….

<Roswell UFO crash: June 1947 audio story>

Army press release is fascinating:

The many rumors regarding the flying disc became a reality yesterday when the intelligence office of the 509th Bomb group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disc through the cooperation of one of the local ranchers and the sheriff’s office of Chaves County. The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. Not having phone facilities, the rancher stored the disc until such time as he was able to contact the sheriff’s office, who in turn notified Maj. Jesse A. Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office. Action was immediately taken and the disc was picked up at the rancher’s home.

Flying disc. It wasn’t theirs. Flying object. Disc. Disc, Disc. Extra Terrestrial.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists 1; Scoffers 0

Little known fact: other Roswell army officers believe multiple UFO’s crashed near Roswell late June 1947

Alas, it couldn’t be…

The higher ups in the military back in DC freaked out. They issued a weak sauce retraction. Jesse Marcel, the local intelligence officer assigned to the Roswell Army Air Field had to issue a mea culpa. It wasn’t flying disc. It was a  “weather balloon.”

Marcel’s family says that he was threatened to comply even though he knew it was not a weather balloon but a crashed spaceship.

He is holding a “piece” of the “balloon” as he bleats “weather balloon to the press.” Look at his eyes. He is not looking at the camera, but off camera. Regurgitating something he didn’t believe to please his superior officers.

Jesse Marcel walks it back: You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

If you read this blog, your take on what I ‘n’ I says next comes down to the Manichean choice. Do you believe Wikipedia or your Ace From Outer Space, Bobbylon the Ancient Astronaut Theorist?

Pick your choice: Giorgio? or Wikipedia?

My brother in law used to sell high tech pipe to irrigation and water conservation clients in Roswell. One day he took his client to lunch and asked, “So what’s the deal with the UFO’s”.

His customer, a ranch supply distributor, salt of the earth Southwest cowboy said outright. “The local coroner was told by the Army to deliver 3 child size coffins to the base. Why do you need coffins for a weather balloon?”

Game. Set. Match.

Roswell, NM July 1947

If you don’t trust I ‘n’ I do you trust Dwight Eisenhower. (He signed a treaty with the aliens. They can surveill us and we get their technology.)In 1954 Pres.  Eisenhower went to play golf and developed a “tooth crisis” instead. He disappeared from Secret Service protection. Why?

He went up into a flying saucer to negotiate the treaty

Eisenhower signs treaty with Aliens

Ike’s treaty saved the planet from Alien annihilation

Don’t like Ike? How about Tricky Dick? Nixon showed entertainer Jackie Gleason alien cadavers in cold storage at an Air Force base in Florida. Gleason had the world’s biggest UFO collection at the time, but seeing the reality of the alien corpses haunted him.

Jackie Gleason sees dead Aliens

“To the Moon, Alice!”

Ancient Astronaut Theory

<Utnapishtim and his space ship. Not Noah’s Ark; 1 min. 45 sec.>

Not Noah and an Ark to survive the Great Flood. Just like outer space is the only way to escape the Covid, so was interplanetary travel the only way to survive the deluge. 500 years before the mud receded. No wooden ark with one family could survive that.

No ark. Spaceship….

Similar to The Borg in Star Trek: New Gen. The Tesseract spaceship was how to survive the Great Flood

More likely scenario? Sumerian immortal ancient alien, Utnapishtim, DNA seedbank to spaceship or . Noah’s Ark. 70 cubits by 70 cubits. Ricketty-ass wooden ark. One family to separate the carnivores from the herbivores, shovel shit and feed animals.

Noah story predecessor: (Sumerian) Utnapishtim preparing his Space Ark

<Gilgamesh, immortality and the serpent; 56 sec.>

As part of the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gil was half mortal/half immortal. He sought out Utnapishtim on his tesseract spaceship. Utnapushtim gave him the Tree of Life. Immortality secured, an exhausted Gilgamesh returned to Sumer (Shinar in the Bible) and fell asleep on a river bank.

The treacherous serpent slithered out of the reeds and stole away the Tree of Life (Eden). Gilgamesh died a mortal. As did Adam and Eve after their encounter with the snake.

Gilgamesh loses the Tree of Life (immortality) to a Serpent

In Revelation, John the Revelator mentions the New Jerusalem. But he isn’t describing a city. It is a massive spaceship 1400 miles x 1400 miles:

Revelation 21:2 – I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband

Coming down out of heaven, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed. The jeweled dressing are the lights on the spaceship.

From Revelation: The New Jerusalem is a Spaceship, not a city. 1400 miles x 1400 miles

The Anunnaki – Those who camr down from the sky. The Ancient Sumerian Skygods: Anu, Marduk, Enki, Ishtar, Enlil and more. They created mankind to mine gold and travel in from the Planet Nibiru.

Flying Saucers
Them a chat bout on-ya
Flying Saucers
Up in the Sky near and far
It’s coming like Star Wars…Watch it!

Please tell me: what is the meaning?
The meaning of these sightings?
So many people claim to see the same thing
I guess it must mean something

Talking about Extra Terrestrials!
Ask yourself: is it real or is it impossible? Watch out!

In the Book of Ezekiel
It’s like he describes a Crystal Ship

I’ve got to wonder if he was for real?
Was he just a raving lunatic? Hallelu-Jah!

Enoch walked with God
And he was found not

Elijah was taken up into a Chariot
A Chariot of Fire!

Inna Ancient Mesopotamia
They talked about the Anunnaki
They said they came from beyond the Sky
Oh tell me! Was they telling a lie?

El Kuluwm means the Source
El Kuluwm the highest course
All and Iley and Allah is the Same
So the Rastaman tell me no feel no way

These are the Biblical, Islamic and Hindu examples of Ancient Astronaut Encounters:

  • Chariots of the Gods – space ship
  • Jacob’s Ladder – space ship
  • Burning bush – space ship
  • Prophet Ezekiel and his crystal ship – space ship
  • Stairway to Heaven – space ship
  • Noah’s grand dad Enoch “walked with God and then was not”. Taken to heaven in a space ship
  • New Jerusalem – space ship
  • Magic carpets in the Arabian Nights – space ship
  • Muhammad’s night journey to Heaven on a winged horse: El Buraq – Space ship
  • Vimanas from Hindu cosmology – space ship

Before man could venture into space, mammals had to go first. The Soviets had Laika the space dog. Burned up within hours of flight on Sputnik 2.

America went with primates while figuring out space travel. Same result. Audio Active pays tribute to the Space monkey pioneer martyrs

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: May 9, 2020 – Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon!

Navy captures UFO. Admits it as “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon”

Greetings,

I ‘n’ I told you so!

<Pentagon admits UFO’s are real>

Those bastards thought they could slip something as earthshaking as the reality of extra terrestrial visitation buried under the maelstrom of the Covid doom porn.

But I’m into those scamps! A lot of scoffers owe I ‘n’ I an apology. I will be making the rounds as soon as the lock down is lifted!

The Department of Defense released three unclassified videos showing the U.S. Navy’s encounters with “unidentified aerial phenomena” in an attempt to “clear up any misconceptions” regarding whether the videos – which have been circulating for years – are real.

From their bulletin:

The U.S. Navy previously acknowledged that these videos circulating in the public domain were indeed Navy videos. After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” DOD said in a statement.

The TV program Unidentified, featuring UFO investigator Tom DeLonge of Blink 182, showed these videos. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon clips shocked the Naval pilots. They moved at speeds that would tear up any human pilot. The quote: It would turn them into tapioca pudding!

Those bastards have been bullshitting us since Roswell,1947. And this is what they deserve when the Aliens make their presence known.

Smile Jamaica From the Ark-Ives: Jah-pril 4, 2020 – Living Room Kinda Cloudy!

Living Room kinda cloudy!

Greetings,

How is your quarantine treating you? This show is the third Homegrown edition of Smile Jamaica since the clampdown.

I  ‘n’ I have whiled away the daylight hours crafting  the 6 x half hour sets to upload to KRCL to play live, Saturday 4-7 PM on air. This and the next edition of Smile Jamaica is  a dubble dose of 420.

Pot-cast as opposed to podcast. All Mutant Dub herbal enthusiasts. Included are my infamous marijuana related soundbytes, movie dialog and specialty bong effects. More than 25 years of such green leafy goodness

For an introvert, you would think I ‘n’ I would  be loving Shelter in Place. Been listening to about 4-5 hours of music a day. Hate daytime TV. Probably 60 disks in the queue for when the all clear is given to rinse out on the radio

You would think quarantine would be a piece of cake.

Not so. I ‘n’ I have been mostly good. Stick to home during the week. But I refused to be an invalid on the weekends. Mini excursions as a Smile Jamaica listener:

  • Bought gas for $1.99 a gallon. Too bad you can’t drive anywhere
  • Broke the glass bowl on my smoking utensil – Praise Anu the headshops are open!
  •  Ordered some missing Jah Shaka 10″ and 12″ vinyl off Discogs to complete my collection. $50 a pop. The cratediggers equivalent of comfort food
  • I ‘n’ I did do some cratedigging  at Graywhale. Mask, gloves and no one in the Reggae, Techno, World sections. Man, record stores are gonna be lucky to survive the economics of Covid-19
  •  Make a loop looking for some items: have toilet paper and paper towels. Scored two bottles of bleach at the Mall-wart (where I would never shop during normal times.) Can’t find rubbing alcohol which I ‘n’ I need for cleaning my smoking utensil
  • Ordered some bass traps for my new subwoofer so maybe my neighbor will quit bitching about “bass infection”
  • Binge watched the last 2 seasons of Ancient Aliens – did you know viruses were created by Aliens to manipulate mankind’s evolution? Well, now you know!
Ancient aliens have shaped human evolution by inducing us with viruses. Covid19? Blame Aliens not the Chinese!
  • Switched to an HBO comedy series called High Maintenance about a NYC weed delivery guy
  • Bombed out of line at the liquor store. Too many people outside even at six feet apart? Not worth it for my 1750 ml of Makers Mark
  • Cleaned out my storage shed I ‘n’ I probably hadn’t been in in over a decade
  • Organized my T shirt collection by: Marley, Weed, Aliens, Sumerians, rockers
  • Slogged through my taxes . Check daily for my $1200 Trumpbux, because….
  • Found out my car is dying. Took it in for 90k service and got told $3500 in my future for repairs. Gonna car shop on Sunday for a new Soob. Hope new models still have CD players!
  • Dodging the daily earthquakes SLC has been having.
  • Walking from the living room to the Ark-ives is not enough physical activity. Bought a pedometer and stealth walking my neighborhood avoiding all other people doing the same. I ‘n’ I will pay the jaywalking ticket.
  • Did a little work for the University

The one thing I ‘n’ I am not doing much? Reading politics. Tired of body counts, doom porn and the inevitable political bickering on who to blame for the Covid.

So I’m going old school: Found this book in a box in the shed I ‘n’ I had bought during my last cratedig to San Francisco. City Lights Bookstore:

The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe.

Something moody and macabre to fit the mood as we all wait for the Covid to come get us.

The Unparalleled Adventures of One Hans Pfaal

  • With a heart of furious fancies,
  • Whereof, I am commander,
  • With a burning spear and a horse of air ,
  • To the wilderness I wander

Did someone say Burning Spear? I ‘n’ I think I made a good choice to counter the doom porn until we are all let out in 2022.

Stay safe, don’t hoard and bless,

Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-bruary 29, 2020 – Leap Day Reggae Vinyl!

 

Greetings,

Ah, yes. The endorphin rush of finding that record. I ‘n’ I been a vinyl collector since clothes shopping with my Mom at Woolworth’s the beginning of 7th grade: ‘Sept. 77. The year the two sevens clashed.

My first “dig”: Best of the Doobie Brothers. (For a Seven Leaf guy, who knew the significance of that purchase 40 years on!)

With an extra Saturday, during the shortest month of the year, why note celebrate that legacy of vinyl collection with a trip down black wax memory lane on Smile Jamaica .

I was getting crosseyed with my bredrins Mike and Aquaboy. Friday 4:20. I ‘n’ I brought over a 60 minute mix for Mixcloud of my favorite UK Reggae faves. Segue into the first Black Sabbath album.

WTF?

So I’n’ I said: Would you believe I have a 7″ record that mashes up Black Sabbath with Black Uhuru?

That’s the delight in record obsession. You’ve got Satanic Heavy Metal inna mi Rasta Roots Reggae!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-bruary 15, 2020 – Aliens Don’t Stream!

They are here and they are coming!

Greetings,

Sometimes I get asked: “What’s with all the UFO tunes on Smile  Jamaica. It’s even been mentioned in KRCL staff meetings: “Does he really belief that stuff?”

I do. My code of life is – Your perception is not my reality.

From my Sumerian Fundamentalist heritage through Ancient Aliens, Reggae is right in the middle.

Spaceship Egyptian glyph

Those who don’t like it, can scoff on over to another radio station. Because I ‘n’ I am vindicated in my belief.

Radio SOS signals from the next galaxy. Radio. Just like Carl Sagan reached out in 1977, the Aliens heard his message and are calling back.

A literal gold record

The Voyager mission when the 2 7’s clashed (1977) was meant to reach out to any sentient beings in the vastness of space. The gold record, which included Sumerian greetings: “May all be well” along side Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode.

Well, it appears they got our gift. And here they come…..

Deep space radio signals on 16.5 day repetitive cycle

<Radio signals from outerspace; 33 sec.>

“Mysterious radio signals from space have been known to repeat, but for the first time, researchers have noticed a pattern in a series of bursts coming from a single source half a billion light-years from Earth”

Not random. But on a cycle. Like we would do: Are You There?…(repeat). Now they are doing the same to us: We got your message (repeat). If you have ever seen the Jodie Foster movie, Contact, that is the plot.

The Bulgarian libertarians at Zerohedge muse:

So could it be aliens seeking to establish contact via hidden messages meant to be deciphered from rational patterns?

Naw. This is what I think happened. They got our package from the Voyager. But those fools at NASA didn’t include a record player. Plus zero gravity in space makes it impossible to “drop the needle pon the record.”

I ‘n ‘I think it is fascinating that the contact is by a “dead medium” of radio. In 10 years, on Earth, 70% of all media will be streamed. Not broadcast (radio, satellite radio, television).

Aliens, embrace my philosophy: No digital for I ‘n’ I.

So just like Pres. 45 listens to the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives while watching CNN with the sound muted, maybe someway, somehow,  some miracle, the Aliens found a fellow traveller, via I ‘n’ I Mixcloud archive, and appreciate the outer space inna terrestrial rub a dub.

Black wax. Shiny aluminum disks. No 1’s and 0’s. Why not?

Remember: Your perception is not  my reality.

Smile Jamaica’s Three reasons why Aliens made radio contact; 1 min. 44

  1. They need our gravity to play records

2. Qanon told I ‘n’ I that the radio signal on repeat isn’t an SOS but was deciphered as Play more Bob Marley”

3. No oxygen in space to spark a doobie
