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

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-nuary 11, 2020 – World War 3.0/Reggae Prophecy

Greetings,

The last time I ‘n’ I felt the need to lay down a Reggae set about World War III was Summer 2014.

Civil War in Ukraine. Russians in the East, Ukrainians in the West went at it and in the middle of the conflict a Dutch airliner was shot down.

Sabres were rattled. Much hostile rhetoric. NATO vs. Putin. WTF?

Bunny Wailer: Ceasefire and light the chalice

So I do what I’n’ I always do. Go into the Smile Jamaica Ark-ives and hunt down the appropriate peace treaty tunes mixed with cautionary anti-war roots.

I ‘n’ I political philosophy can summed up in three planks

  1. Everything turned to shit when people quit praising the original Holy Trinity: Anu, Enki and Ishtar
  2. Extra terrestrials are here to try and stop us from destroying the planet they need for their gold stocks
  3. “Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right….here I ‘n’ I am stuck in the middle with you.”
My vote for 2020

The World War III set 2014 was offered, Putin heard it on my Mixcloud stream and he backed off.

And while things aren’t perfect in Ukraine, the galaxy, not just Earth, was spared Chernobyl 2,000,000.0.

Putin’s a dubber. Goes by the name DJ Lemonhead

Bad Vlad always favorites Smile Jamaica streams on Mixcloud

***

Wheel it forward to 2020. Pres. 45. The Orange Messiah. Swamp is draining like my dad’s cerebral spinal fluid shunt. Barely, but supposedly dripping.

Just came off the road from seeing my Pop’s and family in Albuquerque then Phoenix. Intense week of caregiving (my Pop’s has NPH which makes him: wacky, wobbly and wet).

Got in one day of cratedigging in Phoenix. Love their vinyl shops much better in 60 degree weather than 110.

Among the Reggae gems you hear I ‘n’ I rinse out on this podcast, I found some grooving word LPs.

  1. Fly back to SLC Jan. 1
  2. Put together weekly Mixcloud podcast Jan. 2
  3. Rise and Shine 7am to post podcast Jan. 3
  4. See on Twitter that the Iranian General had been assassinated by the “Swamp Drainer.” Fuck it. I ‘n’ I am going back to bed
I fought the swamp and the swamp won

<Bobbylon’s World War 3.0  Set; 1 min. 47 sec.>

***

No one wants to see their ancestral home destroyed. As you may or may not know: My Mom’s family emigrated/escaped  from Iran around World War I.

I ‘n’ I identify as an Assyrian American/Sumerian Fundamentalist.

Bobbylon’s Sky God – Anu. I ‘n’ I put the “old” in old school

My graduation gift for 1983 was promised a trip to Iran. Alas, the Islamic Revolution in ’79 scuttled that. Lebanon, Gaza, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iraq 2.0, ISIS/ISIL, Libya, Somalia, Syria. Looks like Iran got next, alas!

So back into the  Ark-Ives. Pull another set of World War 3.0 Reggae/Punk/Ska

  1. The Clash – Rock the Casbah – topical in that the Ayatollahs had banned popular music in Iran
  2. Ruffy & Tuffy – If the Third World War Is a Must. Roots twins prophecy: there are no winners when Russia ‘n’ America “come fi buss.”
  3. The Special AKA – War Crimes. 2 Tone ska regarding massacres in Beirut Lebanon compared to the death camp of Belsen. “The numbers are different but the crime is still the same.”
  4. Mikey Dread – World War 3.0 is only minutes away!

Rumor has it Pres. 45 likes to listen to the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive Podcasts while watching CNN with the TV muted.

Big Macs, cheeseburgers and Smile Jamaica. Let us hope he hears I ‘n I Prophecy and heeds the call…NO WAR IN IRAN

My wish is that if you are reading this, you listen to the anti-War set and pray to the sky god(s) of your choosing that there be NO WAR IN IRAN

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-nuary 4, 2020 – Mutant Dub, Gilgamesh & Neil Armstrong!

Mutant Dubbers unite!

Greetings,

And Happy New Year from Smile Jamaica.

A Mutant Dub New Year. For over a decade now, I have been starting the year with the outer fringes of Reggae music that you hear I ‘n’ I play for centuries at the last half hour of Smile Jamaica.

<What is Mutant Dub?; 34 sec.>

Mutant Dub definition: Take Reggae drum and bass, attach it to modern electro/dance/post pop textures. Apply copious echo and special effects.

Epitomized by the Holy Trinity of producers: Adrian Sherwood/ON U Sound; Jah Shaka and the Mad Professor

Adrian Sherwood – the Bob Marley of Mutant Dub

My bredrin/mentor, Rutabaga Reese – previous Smile Jamaica host, turned me onto this style of dub as I ‘n’ I was absorbing my Roots Reggae knowledge.

Moody, atmospheric, modernesque. Some orthodox Reggae heads hate it*. But I ‘n’ I love it. If you do a Google search on Mutant Dub. Smile Jamaica is what pops up first!

The highest rated show in the podcast history of Smile Jamaica, circa 2013, is my Mutant Dub 420 showcase.

Mutant Dub 420 on Smile Jamaica

*I used to get angry calls “quit playing that techno crap.” Not anymore!

Even KRCL station manager, Tristin Tabish, is a Mutant…

<KRCL management loves Mutant Dub; 3 sec.>

Since nothing is static after doing radio for 30 plus years, after I was retired from political interviews on KRCL’s Radioactive, I ‘n’ I switched to Ancient Aliens on History Channel.

Giorgio and von Daniken’s Sumerian Skygods/Ancient Astronauts combined my Mesopotamian ancestry to outer space.

Giorgio Tsoukalos – The Bob Marley of Ancient Aliens

***

So I ‘n’ I do what I ‘n’ I always does. Start combing the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives for Alien Reggae and Dub songs. I ‘n’ I don’t have a single Mutant Dub Christmas tune, but found nearly 200 UFOria (UFO’s + euphoria = UFOria).

Tenastelin – The Bob Marley of Sumerian/Biblical astronaut songs

So, for Mutant Dub New Year, I switch up the traditional last half hour to UFO tunes.

Two stories. One ancient. One modern

The Epic of Gilgamesh – The story of a man seeking immortality. Comes across the original “Noah” plagiarized from the Bible. Utnapishtim was tasked by Enki, a major Skygod of the Anunnaki (Sumerian sky gods, “those who came from the sky”).

Enki’s brother Enlil was disgusted that the humans they created to mine gold on behalf of the Anunna (singular of Anunnaki) were instead having sex with Earth women.

Anu, the Bob Marley of the Anunnaki, agreed to wipe out the human experiment with a flood. But Enki took pity. He worked with a dread named Utnapishtim. Enki told him to gather up his family along with a DNA seedbank of animals and plants.

Sumerian Tree of Life is the double helix DNA

The Skygod loaned him a spaceship called a tesseract. A cube shaped ship that orbited Earth for 500 years. When the flood waters receded, Utnapishtim returned to the planet to start anew.

Tesserect space cube. Similar to the Borg on Star Trek

Gilgamesh sought out Utnapishtim who gave him the root of immortality. Gil, going through the trials and tribulations of his Epic, was exhausted and satisfied that he had been successful in his quest. Everlasting life.

So, the now God in his own right, lay by the side of the road for a well deserved nap. Alas, a snake slithered out of the reeds and stole his root of immortality. Gilgamesh died a mortal man.

<Epic of Gilgamesh; 76 sec.>

Gilgamesh loses his root of immortality to a serpent

Neil Armstrong story.

Neil Armstrong. First man on the moon. We have all heard the famous sound clip as he touches down on the lunar surface.

“This is one small step for man. And one giant leap for mankind.”

Fake news. That was the SECOND thing he said on the “comm” to NASA

Neil Armstrong – the Bob Marley of lunar astronauts

When Armstrong was a youth, he was playing catch with his brother in the yard. As happens, the ball went across the fence into the neighbor’s yard. Neil went to fetch it back.

Hot summer afternoon. The neighbors, a family named Gorsky, were having a little “afternoon delight”. Neil, curious, listened in on the pillow talk.

He heard Mr. Gorsky ask his wife for oral sex. She guffawed, “I’ll give you oral sex when the Armstrong kid next door walks on the moon.”

So wheel it forward to July 20, 1969. As Neil touched down on the moon’s surface his actual first words were. “Good luck Mr. Gorsky!”

<Good luck Mr. Gorsky! 42 sec.>

And I ‘n’ I don’t have time for the story of how Neil Armstrong became a Muslim. Or how the Apollo 11 moonlanding was a Stanley Kubrick production.

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

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-cember 14, 2019 – Santa Claus is an Alien!

Greetings,

Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests: Santa Claus is an Alien.

<Santa’s Sleigh was a Spaceship; 22>

UK singer Chris DeBurgh thinks so. So does Reggae singer John Holt.

Alien roots of Santa Claus; 65 sec.

Noel Baba – Father Christmas for Christian communities in modern Turkey. St. Nicholas to Western Christians
  1. A flying sled to ancient peoples in modern day Turkey where Saint Nicholas came from is obviously a spaceship.
  2. He didn’t land on rooftops, it was the green tractor beam. Gifts going down,  in return for abductions going up!
More believable than 12 reindeer pulling a fat white dude full of gifts across the skies

3. Rudolph’s red nose? WTF? Tracking beacon on the nose cone of the Spaceship

4. What about that star in the East where the Magi were bringing gold, frankncense and weed? Spaceship!

Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests: The star in the East was a spaceship
More likely occurrence

So when that Spaceman comes travelling on Dec. 24th, now you know where the true history lies.

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-vember 16, 2019: Your Perception is Not My Reality!

Greetings,

I ‘n’ I was fighting glaucoma with my bredrins Mike and Aqua Boy. I was laying out my Presidential strategy for taking down The Cheetolini in 2020:

Tulsi-Bernie

America’s only hope in 2020

With the JFK coup anniversary looming: Was it Bin Laden on the Grassy Knoll? Discuss!

But then the discussion took a turn. When baseball season is over, I ‘n’ I turn to a new time suck: Ancient Aliens on the History Channel.

I was talking about the documentary’s 2 hour tribute to Erich von Daniken, the Father of Ancient Astronaut Theory. His book, Chariots of the Gods, lit the fuse for a whole generation seeking a connection between ancient astronauts mis-labelled as Sky Gods by mankind.

I took to the alternative cosmology of Ancient Astronaut Theory late in life. But I should have been into it for 40 years….

I grew up in a small farming community in North Central Montana called Fort Benton. Beautiful little river city. We had a theater and a drive in. It was a short bike ride from my house to go see a movie to get out of the sun.

Fort Benton, Montana – the Birthplace of Montana and cattle multilations

It was sometime, summer 1975. I was ten years old. The movie was Young Frankenstein: Mel Brooks, Marty Feldman and Teri Garr. But, in the lobby was something that really intrigued me: a whole display of cut outs, movie stills and placards describing Chariots of the Gods. The movie.

One of the stills described a picture in Ancient Assyria; my mother’s homeland in the Fertile Crescent. I was totally enthralled and could not wait to see it in two weeks!

Coming soon to a farm implement dealership

The following week, the movie theater went out of business and became a farm implement manufacturing business. Cursed!

****

Wheel it forward to last weekend. I was regaling my mates, between bongrips and bourbon, of the story von Daniken described from the Bible: Ezekiel and the crystal ship. A wheel within a wheel.

Ezekiel 1:14-28. Ancient Astronaut Theory

 14And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.

18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.

19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

That, my friends, is the description of nothing other than a space ship which travels by gyration, the wheel within a wheel!

What the Prophet Ezekiel saw in the Old Testament

<Ezekiel’s crystal ship>

My bredrin Aquaboy, who reads dinosaur media like the New York Times and The Nation magazine, was not having it. He was giving me the red eyed hairy eyeball.

The hairy eyeball

So I’n’ I zone in on the kill shot: The Ancient Aliens episode devoted to Chariots of the Gods’ legacy talked about one of the original NASA scientists who thought von Daniken was a crank and set out to use physics to debunk the wheel within a wheel.

His name was Sidney Blumrich…

I ‘n’ I, who does not read the New York Times nor the Nation, never got to finish…Aquaboy was full on scoffing. I ‘n’ I held up my hand and calmly said,

“Your perception is not my reality.”

They’re here. They’ve always been here. And they’re coming! Scoffing won’t save you!

bless, Bobbylon

Bobbylon’s Top Ten Biblical Alien Encounters

  1. Moses and the burning bush – spaceship
  2. Ezekeiel and the Crystal Ship: the wheel within a wheel aka a gyroscopic spaceship
  3. Stairway to Heaven – walkway to a spaceship
  4. Enoch – Noah’s grandfather who walked with God and then was not
  5. Lot’s wife – turned into a pillar of smoke, not salt after Armageddon was destroyed in a nuclear attack
  6. The New Jerusalem – Borg cube massive space ship
  7. The Nephilim – Biblical giants describing the Anunnaki who created mankind and mated with their women
  8. Noah’s Flood (1) – Utnapishtim in a tessaract spaceship to wait for the flood waters to recede (Sumerian origin story)
  9. Noah’s Flood (2) – Ziusudra in a submarine to wait for the flood waters to recede (Sumerian origin story)
  10. Jacob’s Ladder – spaceship walkway (see #3)

How about some examples from Islam and Hinduism:

  • Magic/flying carpets
  • The Prophet Muhammad’s midnight journey to Heaven on the back of a winged horse Al-Buraq. Buraq means “lightning” in Arabic (one man space capsule)
  • Descriptions of flaming minarets in the sky (missiles)
  • Hindu Vimana’s: space chariots fighting battles
  • Shiva’s Trident – missile
Al-Buraq “lightning”. Took the Prophet Muhammad to heaven from earth….spaceship!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives Jah-tober 12, 2019 – 400 Years/Anti-Columbus Special

Greetings,

They called it”spoilage”. That is what you lose when your cargo goes bad. Or you are a trucker and you are overweight for the Interstate. I remember asking my Dad once in California. “Why did that trucker dump a bunch of oranges by the side of the road?” Pops: “The truck is too heavy and he had to lighten his load.”

Now picture that same dynamic on a slave voyage from 1526 til the Mid 1800s. Spoilage was the loss of life on the journey from West Africa to the New World. Either dead slaves, or if the ship was overloaded, several excess slaves would be simply chucked over the side to drown.

<Spoilage in the Slave Trade; 65 sec.>

Prince Far I – “When the boat overload, they threw some of us overboard”

Reggae music came about in Jamaica because of slavery. The Brits lived in the upscale plantation house. Irish and Scottish immigrants worked as overseers in the fields. Black slaves worked the sugar plantations.

Eventually, The Irish and Scottish wiled away their time by playing fiddle and piano. As time went on, blacks picked up those instruments and learned to play. Usually on Sunday – Church services. When you absorb African drumming onto Western melodies and instruments — that is how you get Reggae music.

<British instruments + African drums = Reggae; 41 sec.>

In October, Columbus Day, is a Holiday. Christopher Columbus. The Genovese explorer who stumbled onto “India” on behalf of the Spanish Crown.  Thus began the American Holocaust

David Stannard’s classic about the ravages of slavery gave context to my love of Reggae Music

Columbus was looking for a Western route to India that wouldn’t take Europeans through Muslim territory for the riches of the Subcontinent.

Ancient Astronaut Theory Suggests….Columbus had two UFO Encounters

<Columbus, The Bermuda Triangle and UFOs>

Christopher Columbus and UFO’s

Columbus wrote in his journal

  • The incident took place on October 11th 1492, 10pm. At the time of the incident it is said that Santa Maria (the ship) was sailing through what is now known as the Bermuda Triangle. The crew first noticed a disc shaped object emerging from the sea. The description given in the ship’s log is that of a wax candle light moving up and down in the night sky.
  • Prior to this incident the ship’s logs in the month of September (17th and 20th) provide accounts of what are described as stars making noticeable movements in the night sky.
Christopher Columbus tracked by UFOs

Columbus’s crew reached what is now the Bahamas in 1492. He thought he had landed in India. The Taino and Arawak natives, (soon to be wrongly called Indians), greeted the explorers with friendly intent. Unfortunately for them, they arrived in gold finery.

The Euros returned the generosity with massacres, cholera, syphilis and  rape. Whoever survived the onslaught was enslaved and forced to mine gold. After a generation the Indigenous tribes fought back with the only real weapon they had: mass suicide. They would simply jump off cliffs into the sea. Or eat a meal of poisonous roots.

<Taino and Arawak devastation by Columbus; 1 min. 55 sec.>

As the Conquistadors prepared to burn Hatuey alive, a “helpful” Catholic Priest offered salvation to him. If he accepted Christ he would immediately go to Heaven and not burn for Eternity in Hell as a Heathen.

Hatuey politely declined. “I have seen what the Christians are like on Earth. Why would I want to meet anymore of them in the Sky?”

***

In 1526 the Portugese kicked off the Atlantic Slave Trade. Soon to follow were the Spanish, English and Dutch. Thus began what Peter Tosh sang: “400 Years and it’s the same philosophy)

<Wailers and Peter Tosh – 400 Years; 1 min. 15 sec.>

Actually, this is Peter Tosh with Lee “Scratch” Perry and the Upsetters

Thus began 3 centuries of the Middle Passage

  1. Europeans would load ships full of commercial goods: textiles, rifles, flint locks
  2. They would dock on the Gold Coast of West Africa. They would trade their goods for slaves. (Most slaves were captives in tribal wars.)
  3. The slaves would be packed on the ships “like sardines in a tin” and shipped to the New World: America, Mexico, South America, the Caribbean and especially Brazil.

<The Dungeon in the Merchant Ship; 36 sec.>

Human cargo packed like sardines in a tin

4. The slaves, in Jamaica, would be forced to harvest sugar cane.

5. The ships return to Europe with sugar products: granular sweetener, rum, molasses.

6. European factory workers, driven by their sugar rush, in the beginning of the Industrial Revolution , could make the consumer goods….to return to Africa

The “Middle Passage” was the leg between Europe to the  New World. As many as as 12.5 million “human cargo” made the excruciating journey over 3 centuries. As many as 2.5 million of those unfortunate wretches perished during the journey.

That’s a spoilage rate of 20%.  And yes, those losses were expected and factored into the price.

<The horrors of the Middle Passage; 90 sec.>

The major themes of Reggae music explore this psychic disruption. Songs about loss, the repatriation to Zion away from Babylon. Rastas worshiping a Black Christ – His Imperial Majesty in  Ethiopia.

Those were the stories that made me a Reggae fanatic. Epitomized by Eek a Mouse’s “Do You Remember”. Song 2 of this podcast

Do you, do you remember those days of slavery?
It wasn’t black man alone, who died through bravery
‘Though some a dem threw dem self over board
Because dis ya slaveship overload

 

Before KRCL moved their Radiothon fund drives to October, I would do an Anti-Columbus show. I would always lead off with Burning Spear‘s takedown of the Italian mass murderer, Columbus

 

This year the beg-a-thon took place a week earlier. Felt good to harvest 40 songs for Indigenous People’s Day. Not Columbus. Or Comb-buss’ (bust) us as Peter Tosh called him.

 

<1526-1970’s: 400 Years of Slavery; 30 sec.>

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-ly 6, 2019: UFO-ria!

Greetings,

When you get to do a radio program on a non-commercial station for 31 years, that entitles one to some indulgences.

For I n’ I that is mashing up Reggae music with UFO’s. WTF?

<How I ‘n’ I got into UFOs; 27 sec.>

The connections of Smile Jamaica to UF0ria (UFO’s + euphoria = UFOria).

  1. The TV show Ancient Aliens on History Channel; 55 sec.

2. Which taught us about the 1947 Roswell UFO crash

<Roswell UFO crash, July 1947; 90 sec.>

DENVER – UNDATED: Major Jesse Marcel from the Roswell Army Air Field with debris found 75 miles north west of Roswell, NM, in June 1947. The debris has been identified as that of a radar target. The Air Force released a report on 24 June debunking reports of a UFO crash near Roswell, NM, in 1947. (Photo by: UNITED STATES AIR FORCE/AFP/Getty Images)

3. Ancient Astronaut Theory – the notion that Sumerian sky gods were in fact ancient astronauts coming from the outer edge of the galaxy. As an Assyrian-American, anything to do with my ancestors in Mesopotamia/Modern Iraq fascinates me.

4. The Skygods from Planet Nibiru* called the Anunnaki. Anu (sky) + na (verb – to go down) + Ki (Earth.) Those who came down from the sky.

*Also called Planet X or the 12th Planet

The Anunnaki created mankind to mine gold for their home planet (under climate change devastation….). When their creation got “noisy” and the minor gods were having sex with Earth women, the decision was to wipe out mankind with a Flood

<Who are the Anunnaki?; 75 sec.>

5. The connections between space travel and descriptions of celestial phenomenon in the Bible.

  • 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 heave in a space ship
  • Magic carpets in the Arabian Nights – space ship
  • Vimanas from Hindu cosmology – space ship

<Ancient astronauts in the Bible; 27 sec.>

Stairway to Heaven – Page and Plant Ancient Astronaut Theorists?

<New Jerusalem in the Bible is a gigantic cubed space ship; 37 sec.>

New Jerusalem is not a city but a huge space shipReggae and Dub have plenty of songs about outer space and UFOs.

6. And now the US government  can’t keep UFO encounters secret or in the realm of “conspiracy theory”. Too many people with phone cameras. A new show on History Channel, Unidentified, covers Air Force, Navy and Deep State reports of UFO encounters with Tic Tac UFO’s.

<Unidentified TV show on History Channel; 75 sec.>

Roswell, The Anunnaki, Ancient Astronauts lead me to comb through the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives looking for UFO/space travel songs. I have about 150 CDs and another 50 LPs/vinyl singles.

So like my other theme shows, like Jah-loween and 420, enjoy these space age tunes from Reggae, Dub, Calypso and even a few rock tunes sifted in.

And as I say: Look to the skies! Do not scoff!

And if they are here with malevolent intent? Let’s go out with a bang!

bless, Bobbylon
