Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-pril 20, 2019 – 420 on 4/20!

Greetings,

April 20th. 4/20. Smokers in San Rafael code for getting together for a toke. Grew from there to what we know now. The Smoker’s Holiday in 10 down, 40 to go.

Even my Mom sent me a Happy 420 meme

Vaping with my parents last Xmas is one of my fondest memories of the past few years. Especially now that my Dad is deathly ill.

So, every April I start looking for new soundbytes to “rip.” This year I “harvested” about 15 new ones

  • Blues Brothers:
  • Dub Side of the Moon:
  • Queen Elizabeth

And how about some Biblical affirmation of the Seven Leaf….

<Revelation 22:2 – Healing of the Nations; 22 sec.>

<Psalm 18:8 – Fire out of his nostrils; 20 sec.>

from the Holy Land to Egypt and Mesopotamia

As we roll a lickle spliff w/ di papyrus and smoke sensimenia inna Mesopotamia

<Mummy Rock; 11 sec.>

Then back to America for jazz chanteuse Billie Holiday’s Seven Leaf motivation…

<Whenever I get low, I get high…Billie Holiday; 12 sec.>

I wonder if there is anyone out there in terrestrial radio land that did 3 hours of all marijuana music in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. And even if they did, who stitches in 420 soundclips, movie dialog and musical bong rips? (The advantages of being a sound editor by trade.)

I ‘n’ I that’s who! Let’s celebrate some free speech while it is still allowed.

<Sensi…ng a theme?; 13 sec.>

So enjoy the 25th (or so) annual 420 on Smile Jamaica. Until it’s 50 down, none to go….

bless, Bobbylon

The only shotgunning that should be allowed between these two nuclear leaders
