<How to deal with the Trump-o-calypse: Let’s Go Out With a Bang!>

Greetings,

Hope everyone had a nice Holiday. I spent the first week at my sister’s in Albuquerque. My parents just became Snowbirds, so my second week was in Phoenix.

Phoenix is a great town for vinyl. CDs are becoming irrelevant, but the racks are full of black wax and lots of people doing what I do for 30 years: cratedig. So I will be visting often in the months of Dec-March. Otherwise, vinyl melts from the store to the car!

Found some nice gems to play in 2017. For over a decade now, the first show of the year on Smile Jamaica is devoted to what I call Mutant Dub: Jamaican drum and bass with modern electronic sounds and textures awash in echodelia.

The 3 hour Mutant Dub World Tour!

As Joe Strummer sang, “Knives to the trebel!”

  1. Crank the volume!
  2. Set bass phasers to stun!

Happy New Year. Forward ever, backwards never!

bless, robt

UFO-ria on Smile Jamaica. Get weightless and float on

Greetings,

Smile Jamaica Presents a lesson in Astro-Theology

On (or thereabouts) the 4th of July 1947, an Alien spacecraft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. Smile Jamaica celebrates 3 hours of Alien stylee; 1 min. 16 sec.

Roswell Daily R soecord: July 9, 1947 – no doubt they crashed, so Extra Terrestrials are real

<Two stories on the date of the Roswell crash>

True story on Roswell:

My brother in law sells high tech pipe to agricultural, research labs, salsa manufacturers. He lives in Albuquerque but travels the length of New Mexico.

One day in Roswell he asked his customer about the 1947 UFO crash. Was it real or bullflop?

His customer said: the local mortuary owner, salt of the earth rural America. Veteran. Straight shooter. The Air Force came to him and asked him to provide 3 children’s size coffins.

“If that’s what he said, that’s how it happened”

Smile Jamaica’s Alien media consumption

Ancient_aliens
Friday Nights

Ancient Aliens TV – Friday Nights on the History Channel. This explores the various connections between Earth’s history and Alien contact before there was recorded history.

<My love of Sumerian history led to UFO-ria; > 2 min 6 sec

Basically Aliens from Nibiru called Anunnaki (Those who came down from the sky) who came to Earth b/c we had the gold they needed for their ruined planet. They were essentially too lazy to mine the gold themselves so they created a race of humans to do the work. When the humans got too noisy, they were destroyed with a flood.

Click image for a better view of how Nibiru’s orbit intersects with Earth and the Sun

Mystery-of-Nibiru-orbit (1)
The 12th Planet Nibiru – 9 planets, Earth’s moon, the Sun, Nibiru. Elliptical orbit from outside the galaxy toward the Sun

Every 3600 years the orbit of Nibiru approaches earth: The Anunnaki drop their space ships to space ports in:

  1. Sumer (lower Iraq)
  2. Sinai (Egypt) – the pyramids are guide posts for entry
  3. Baalbek (Syria)
  4. Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan)

Humans mine the gold. Nibiru whips around the sun heading back out to the edge of our Universe, the ships go up and land on Nibiru for the journey home.

They will be back in 3440 AD.

2. Zecharia Sitchin

An Azerbaijani Jew who translated thousands of cuneiform texts that showed what we know from the Bible and Greek Mythology were actually much older from original source stories from Sumer.

His book series, Earth Chronicles, discusses these topics

zechariasitchin
Zecharia Sitchin – the original Astro Theologist
508957
7 volumes of Aliens on Earth. Stories from the Bible and Greek Mythology came after their Sumerian originals

What have I learned from my bingewatching and binge reading?

All those stories from the Bible and parts of stories from Greek Mythology,  Iraqi A Thousand and One Nights, Hindi religious literature is all “plagiarized” from my ancestors the Sumerians (I am an Assyrian from that area on my mom’s side. Assyrians adapted from the Sumerian cosmology).

What is in the Bible or world literature that relates to Alien space travel?

UFO’s in the Bible

<Spaceships in the Bible; 44 sec.>

  • Noah’s Ark – No: Ziusudra in his submarine or Utnapishtim in his Tessaract
  • Burning Bush – Spaceship
  • Ezekial’s Wheel – Spaceship
  • Jacob’s Ladder – Spaceship
  • Elijah’s Chariot of Fire – Spaceship
  • Enoch (Noah’s great grandfather – “walked with God and then was not”. Taken to the Heavens = Spaceship
  • Magic Carpet Ride – from A Thousand and One Nights – Spaceship
  • Vimanas from Hindu theology – flying spaceships who fought battles in the skies

Makes Sensi to me!

Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:

Anunnaki, Anu-Anunnaki
Anunnaki, El Kuluwm

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

Chunky air Jah-bruary goes out like the Lamb of Judah into Spring. Selah!

<Bad air Jah-bruary goes out like a lamb; 9 sec.>

Greetings,

After a brutal month of bad/chunky/polluted air in Salt Lake City, it was so nice to have 60 degrees for the last Smile Jamaica of winter (Praise Jah!).

I have lived in SLC for coming up on 30 years. Seems like  each winter the Inversion Galore gets worse and worse.

Really vexes me when the weather man talks about “inversion” or “haze”. Yeah, bullflop – it’s smog and pollution.

Thankfully, I don’t have respiratory problems,  but even I got hit with a mild dose of bronchitis this month.

Smile Jamaica’s bronchial cure: Allegra-D in the morning, Mucinex at Noon, Flonase whiff before bedtime. As much water as I can slug down.

One thing about Spring: Hay fever. But at least the mornings are lighter and I get to go home in daylight.

Forward ever, backwards never!

bless, robt
