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-cember 15, 2018: Was Santa Claus an Alien?

Greetings,

Last show of 2018 before I head out for the Holidays. So nuff Christmas a gwaan. And a lickle Hanukkah stylee for good measure.

<Reggae Christmas at the Nelson Family gathering; 40 sec.>

Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests Santa is an Alien

<Santa: spaceship, Rudolph’s nose – tracking beacon; 36 sec.>

But, in fact I tell you the story about Saint Nicolas from modern day Turkey. Baba Noel (father Christmas)

<Baba Noel; 18 sec.>

I ‘n’ I never know the right mix of Christmas tunes to play. If I don’t play any, listeners call in to complain. If I play too much, listeners call and complain.

Last week I was 0 for 2. I played a take on Handel’s Messiah called the Sensimilla Choir. A woman called in and thought that was blasphemous and I shouldn’t be play songs about drugs.

Then I played Fishbone’s Slick Nick — you devil you! Saint Nick (Baba Noel) gone to seed and wrecked Christmas.

Listener called: That song was the worst and Smile Jamaica keeps getting worse.

So for those naysayers, they want I ‘n’ I to postpone Christmas!

<Mutabaruka – Postpone Christmas; 39 sec.>

So no matter where you fall on the spectrum, I hope you have a great Holiday. I get to take my Mom and Pop shopping for the medicinal mistletoe in Sun City West

<All I want for Ismas….>

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-cember 10, 2016: Santa is an Alien!

w138qfa4qj-8-1

Greetings,

Sad news to report. Astronaut John Glenn passed away. Smile Jamaica loves anything to do with Space Travel. John Glenn was a pioneer and I pay tribute to him with some UFO-ria. Those astronauts reported strange encounters with unknown entities while probing space.

When they reported back to Ground Zero at NASA, they were yelled at, “Get off the public comm channel!”

They exist. Do not scoff. Too bad we wasted trillions on war. All that money for space exploration we should at least be having deejays spin anti gravity dubwize on Mars.

Christmas came early for I ‘n’ I:. Ancient Aliens Season 9

download-84

 

In the same way that Alt News (slandered as fake news by the Old Media farts) is a skeptical reaction to newspapers and cable news, The Astro-Theologists on Ancient Aliens are challenging what I have called Archaeo Imperialism.

These archaeological sites are thousands of years older – Egypt, Meso-America, Sumer –  than we are being told.

Tradtional archaeologists would scoff, “Primitive people didn’t have the tools nor the know how to build those incredibly precise temples, ziggurats and pyramids.”

That’s where the Ancient Aliens come in:

  • Noah in the Ark; nope: Ziusudra in a submarine;Utnapishtim in a tessaract space ship
  • Chariots of Fire – jet propulsion from a space ship
  • Burning Bush – ditto
  • Stairway to Heaven – Landing deck for a spaceship
  • Magic Carpet Ride – spaceship
  • Mohammed’s midnight journey from Jerusalem to Heaven on a flying horse? – Spaceship. 
al-buraf_hafifa
The mythical creature who took Mohammed from Jerusalem to Heaven. His name, Baraq, means lightning. Lightning or space propulsion?

AlI I read for my political enlightenment is “fake news”, I am a big believer in the Astro-Theology taught by Ancient Aliens. So here is my supposition.

Santa Claus and his reindeer? Nope. Alien in a space ship. Rudoph’s red nose? Tracking beacon

bless, robt

Wasn’t a fat white guy driving a team of reindeer. Ridiculous. Do not scoff!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-cember 3, 2016: Christmas Soon Come!

<Smile Jamaica’s Christmas dilemma>

Greetings,

I don’t get hung up on the Holiday PC stuff. Happy Holidays? Okay. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kool Kwanza. Most awesome Mawlid (that’s what the Muslims call Jesus’ birthday – one of their Top 5 Prophets.)

My skygod of choice is Anu, Marduk and Isthar. Those who came down from the sky

download-82
Anunnaki goddess: Ishtar. Don’t put this Angel pon your Christmas Tree!

My dilemma hosting Smile Jamaica for 27+ years is how much and when to start Xmas Reggae. Some years I get complaints, “Bah humbug Nelson – play some Christmas jams!” Other years it it, “I listen to Smile Jamaica to not hear commercial Christmas”.

So this week? One Christmas tune. All I want for Christmas is my Collie herb! 8 down 42, to go!

bless, robt

santa
