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

Utah ski tradition: Be coming down the mountain in time for 4:20 Cannabis Service Announcement on Smile Jamaica

Greetings,

Now what? Settling in after the Holidays? A week before school. Cold, wet and gray. Skiers love to get above SLC’s haze and shred some powder.

I am horrible at skiing. But I know many locals love to spend a day on the hill and chillax on their way back to the Valley in time for 4:20 on Smile Jamaica.

New year, more Roots. Same as it ever was for 26+ Years from Smile Jamaica. Forward til Spring!; 34 sec.
