Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-ly 4, 2020: Ancient Astronaut Theorists 17, Scoffers 0

 

Greetings,

Here’s hoping you had a pandemically correct 4th of July. It’s okay to be paranoid, they are watching  if you didn’t!

Do you know what else happened around the 4th of July? 1947? The Alien crash at Roswell, New Mexico.

Roswell is the air field that delivered the atomic bombs that destroyed Jah-pon. Created at Los Alamos in New Mexico. Do you think it is a coincidence that the ground zero for nuclear weaponry was “probed” (pun intended) by extra terrestrial watchers?

Sometime in late June 1947 a ranch foreman in the rural scrub land around the Roswell Army Air Field, named Brazel collected debris, that was non-earth metals in origin.  Ultimately, he delivered the pieces to the Army.

On July 8, 1947 the local paper, the Roswell Record, published a statement from the Army….

<Roswell UFO crash: June 1947 audio story>

Army press release is fascinating:

The many rumors regarding the flying disc became a reality yesterday when the intelligence office of the 509th Bomb group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disc through the cooperation of one of the local ranchers and the sheriff’s office of Chaves County. The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. Not having phone facilities, the rancher stored the disc until such time as he was able to contact the sheriff’s office, who in turn notified Maj. Jesse A. Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office. Action was immediately taken and the disc was picked up at the rancher’s home.

Flying disc. It wasn’t theirs. Flying object. Disc. Disc, Disc. Extra Terrestrial.

Little known fact: other Roswell army officers believe multiple UFO’s crashed near Roswell late June 1947

Alas, it couldn’t be…

The higher ups in the military back in DC freaked out. They issued a weak sauce retraction. Jesse Marcel, the local intelligence officer assigned to the Roswell Army Air Field had to issue a mea culpa. It wasn’t flying disc. It was a  “weather balloon.”

Marcel’s family says that he was threatened to comply even though he knew it was not a weather balloon but a crashed spaceship.

He is holding a “piece” of the “balloon” as he bleats “weather balloon to the press.” Look at his eyes. He is not looking at the camera, but off camera. Regurgitating something he didn’t believe to please his superior officers.

Jesse Marcel walks it back: You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

If you read this blog, your take on what I ‘n’ I says next comes down to the Manichean choice. Do you believe Wikipedia or your Ace From Outer Space, Bobbylon the Ancient Astronaut Theorist?

Pick your choice: Giorgio? or Wikipedia?

My brother in law used to sell high tech pipe to irrigation and water conservation clients in Roswell. One day he took his client to lunch and asked, “So what’s the deal with the UFO’s”.

His customer, a ranch supply distributor, salt of the earth Southwest cowboy said outright. “The local coroner was told by the Army to deliver 3 child size coffins to the base. Why do you need coffins for a weather balloon?”

Game. Set. Match.

Roswell, NM July 1947

If you don’t trust I ‘n’ I do you trust Dwight Eisenhower. (He signed a treaty with the aliens. They can surveill us and we get their technology.)In 1954 Pres.  Eisenhower went to play golf and developed a “tooth crisis” instead. He disappeared from Secret Service protection. Why?

He went up into a flying saucer to negotiate the treaty

Don’t like Ike? How about Tricky Dick? Nixon showed entertainer Jackie Gleason alien cadavers in cold storage at an Air Force base in Florida. Gleason had the world’s biggest UFO collection at the time, but seeing the reality of the alien corpses haunted him.

Ancient Astronaut Theory

<Utnapishtim and his space ship. Not Noah’s Ark; 1 min. 45 sec.>

Not Noah and an Ark to survive the Great Flood. Just like outer space is the only way to escape the Covid, so was interplanetary travel the only way to survive the deluge. 500 years before the mud receded. No wooden ark with one family could survive that.

No ark. Spaceship….

Similar to The Borg in Star Trek: New Gen. The Tesseract spaceship was how to survive the Great Flood

More likely scenario? Sumerian immortal ancient alien, Utnapishtim, DNA seedbank to spaceship or . Noah’s Ark. 70 cubits by 70 cubits. Ricketty-ass wooden ark. One family to separate the carnivores from the herbivores, shovel shit and feed animals.

Noah story predecessor: (Sumerian) Utnapishtim preparing his Space Ark

<Gilgamesh, immortality and the serpent; 56 sec.>

As part of the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gil was half mortal/half immortal. He sought out Utnapishtim on his tesseract spaceship. Utnapushtim gave him the Tree of Life. Immortality secured, an exhausted Gilgamesh returned to Sumer (Shinar in the Bible) and fell asleep on a river bank.

The treacherous serpent slithered out of the reeds and stole away the Tree of Life (Eden). Gilgamesh died a mortal. As did Adam and Eve after their encounter with the snake.

Gilgamesh loses the Tree of Life (immortality) to a Serpent

In Revelation, John the Revelator mentions the New Jerusalem. But he isn’t describing a city. It is a massive spaceship 1400 miles x 1400 miles:

Revelation 21:2 – I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband

Coming down out of heaven, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed. The jeweled dressing are the lights on the spaceship.

The Anunnaki – Those who camr down from the sky. The Ancient Sumerian Skygods: Anu, Marduk, Enki, Ishtar, Enlil and more. They created mankind to mine gold and travel in from the Planet Nibiru. My fellow Ancient Astronaut, Rasta bredrin, Tena Stelin does the roll call of all of Biblical stories of Ancient Aliens.

Flying Saucers

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

These are the Biblical, Islamic and Hindu examples of Ancient Astronaut Encounters:

  • 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 heaven in a space ship
  • New Jerusalem – space ship
  • Magic carpets in the Arabian Nights – space ship
  • Muhammad’s night journey to Heaven on a winged horse: El Buraq – Space ship
  • Vimanas from Hindu cosmology – space ship

Before man could venture into space, mammals had to go first. The Soviets had Laika the space dog. Burned up within hours of flight on Sputnik 2.

RIP Laika

America went with primates while figuring out space travel. Same result. Audio Active pays tribute to the Space monkey pioneer martyrs

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-nuary 5, 2019 – Mutant Dub New Year!

Greetings,

And Happy New Year! On Smile Jamaica that means 3 hours of Mutant Dub. Let’s start out 2019 with heavyweight drum & bass.

<Mutant Dub New Year; 20 sec.>

<What is Mutant Dub? 36 sec.>

Not everybody likes it. I can expect about 1-2 complaints that Techno ain’t Reggae.

But I get to decide where those boundaries lie. And take Jamaican drum & bass and dub echo and stitch in some electronic sounds, dubstep and wobble. Turn up the subwoofer and take knives to the treble.

Plus it fits hand in glove with my recent UFOria fascination. Congrats to the China Space Agency. They landed what was said couldn’t be done: a probe on the dark side of the Moon. Alien lore says the Greys told NASA the dark side was off limits. The Chinese didn’t get the message, apparently

<Lunar Lander Module – Chang’e 4; 50 sec.>

Bonus Alien fascination. I tell you the story of the Epic of Gilgamesh and how a dread named Utnapishtim 

Wasn’t Noah in a ricketty ass wooden Ark. It was a tessaract space ship and DNA seed bank for plants and animals. 500 years in space until the flood water could recede and then the Anunnaki could re-seed Earth.

Astro-physicists of today are exploring the tessaract mode of space transport to flex in and out of time. That could shorten the massive distances in space from Earth and negate the inefficient jet propulsion space travel we engage in currently.

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: July 8, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): 70th Anniv. of Roswell UFO Crash!

Al Leon kicking the bong around. Spaceship kind a cloudy!

<Prince Lincoln: The Aliens gonna whip you and put you in your rightful place!; 10 sec.>

Greetings,

If you have listened to Smile Jamaica regularly over the past 5 years or so you will notice that one of my musical fascinations is UFO tunes.

I used to do political interviews on KRCL. When the Radioactive program was changed by an odious new station manager, (who has since ignominiously resigned), to a lightweight news show as opposed to hard news format, I quit doing it. I charitably said I “retired” from political interviews.

That left me with a whole heap of time to explore other pursuits. Based on  recommendations from a couple of my coffee buddies, I started watching the Ancient Aliens show on History Channel.

Giorgio Tsoukalos the Bob Marley of Ancient Aliens

The gist of the show is that Ancient civilizations were impacted by travelling space visitors who helped  create mankind to do their bidding: mining gold to repair their damaged atmosphere on their home world of Nibiru.

The 12th Planet that exists at the outside of our solar system.

Nibiru loops around on its elliptical orbit and approaches earth every 3600 years

The show tracks mostly Sumerian, Egyptian and Mayan stories and myths. I’m one half Assyrian – from the land of the two rivers (North of ancient Sumer.) So I was fascinated by the connection between one man’s mythology and an alternative world cosmology

Sumerian Tree of Life is a double helix
The Anunnaki created us from DNA of their creation

<Cosmology vs. Mythology; 3 sec.>

One of the things I noticed, especially in Mutant Dub, was the number of Reggae and Dub tunes devoted to space travel, aliens and UFOs. Add in several dozen Rock examples and you have enough for a 3 hour showcase on Smile Jamaica. I got to nearly 300 on my Itunes UFOria playlist. A Smile Jamaica episode averages about 35 songs in 3 hours.

Ground control to Major Tom

Since so much of Rastafari Reggae is devoted to the Bible, I could connect the dots between Sumerian Cosmology of the Anunnaki – Those who came from the sky and UFO’s in the Bible and other ancient stories.

UFOs in the Bible; 1 min

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

Lot’s wife was not turned into a pillar of salt. That is the wrong Hebrew word. She was turned into a pillar of smoke after a nuclear attack to destroy the Sinai spaceport.

Jacob’s ladder: From the ground to a waiting Spaceship

Even Led Zeppelin would agree:

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.

The idea that space travellers from hundreds of thousands of years ago had the capacity to see Earth as a habitat to exploit seems far fetched. But is it any less fantastical than the Bible, Greek myths or Hindu stories?

The original dreads

But one man’s Skygod is another man’s Ancient Astronaut. According to Ancient Aliens, man’s evolution and creation is connected to the very same DNA that contains mysteries  we mere humans can not yet comprehend.

Noah’s Ark is unbelievable. 2 of every animal on a ricketty ass wooden boat? 70 cubits is 105 feet. Less than a modern Aircraft carrier. So you’re gonna fit elephants, giraffes, hippos and rhinos etc? Plus all the smaller creatures. No way.

How you gonna keep the lion from eating the lamb?

Space ship or submarine? Makes more sense. And if the Anunnaki could travel from the outer reaches of our Solar System, they would have the advancement to use the DNA they developed to re-create the animal and plant kingdom from seed banks and DNA repositories they housed on board their space craft.

Modern day physicists believe that the Tesseract space ship could flex time to enable space travel. It was how Utnapishtim left earth for the skies during the Great Flood

Modern technology we can’t even hope to approach in 2017 in an era of primitive Earth history. What local Sumerians, Arabs, Hebrews, Mayans and Hindus saw as chariots, or flying carpets or ladders we would immediately recognize as space craft.

The Anunnaki – see his wristwatch

Listen to my description and Tena Stelin’s song paying tribute to the Ancient Astronauts coming down from the sky…

<The Anunnaki phenomenon>

In America, UFOs are most connected with the July 1947 Roswell New Mexico crash. Wasn’t swamp gas or weather balloons until military censorship

July 8, 1947: RAAF – Roswell Army Air Field

Long story short: In early July 1947, a ranch foreman named William Brazel discovered debris of a downed space craft. He recovered bits of the material and took it home. When he crinkled the metallic material it resumed its smooth, flattened exterior.

The Air Force bullied him into giving up his souvenirs. The Air Force investigator, Jesse Marcel, was also finessed into claiming what he found was nothing more innocuous than a weather balloon.

Fake news 1947: 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)

I have a personal connection to what happened in Roswell that day. My brother in law, Michael, sells high tech pipe to computer companies. He is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

<Robert’s Roswell Recap; 1 min. 14 sec.>

He was in Roswell selling high tech pipe to local salsa manufacturers. He was having lunch in the local cafe with one of his clients. He innocuously asked, “What’s the deal with Roswell and UFOs?”

His lunch mate said that the coroner was instructed by the Air Force to bring 3 child size coffins to the Base. “You don’t need coffins for a weather balloon.” The coroner was total salt of the earth, rural roots and no big city conspiracy nut.

That was enough for me! Do not scoff, Look to the skies!

<Coffins for a weather balloon?>

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (March 18, 2017): From Yodel Reggae to Sumerian Flood stories!

Greetings,

I know it’s spring when I have to go to the pharmacy for that behind the counter Claritin D

Love that extra hour of daylight on Smile Jamaica

I am going through a home remodel and have packed up my records until my room addition is completed. As I pack I pull out gems.

Musical nostalgia. Most of the shops I stocked the Ark-Ives from are long gone. Everything else is pieced out as single items on ebay.

Bim Sherman Century bought for $20 from UK now fetches $1250 on ebay.

When I started collecting Reggae in the mid 80s, people would sell their entire black collection for seed money for these new novelty items: the compact disk. So I scooped up as much Reggae vinyl as Ronald Reagan’s student loan check would allow. Bargain basement price.

I have records I bought for $4 in perfect condition that sell for $400 now in lousy condition.

In 2017 of all ironies: The Compact Disks is going the way of the dodo and vinyl (and vinyl only Record Huts) are coming back.

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist) Nov. 5 2016: Election Re-cap!

download-75
Smile Jamaica News Service reports: “Ebola defeated Bubonic Plague in the 2016 Presidential Election”

Greetings,

I predicted this. President Donald J. Trump. 

I get together with some bredrins every Friday afternoon for bourbon and music sessions.

Of course politics are a common topic with my mates. My buddy Aquaboy, Sandroid turned Hillbot, was fairly cocky that the polls showed Hillary way ahead. Evan McMullin was gonna win Utah.

I would look over at my buddy Free-Mike and give him a cold stare and said, “When we meet next Friday, you will all be stunned.” Aquaboy would scoff. Who’s scoffing now?

madam-president-newsweek
Or as Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan calls it: Snooze-weak

My main blog roll is the Libertarian site, Zerohedge. Run by Bulgarian hedgefunders who predicted the 2008 economic collapse and  theyrefuse to adhere to the usual corporate media consensus. They mercilessly mock the corporate media outlets.

Since I did political interviews, Radioactive 2003-2012, I am also a natural skeptic to corporate news:

  • CNN – The Clinton News Network
  • AP – Assimilated Presstitutes
  • NPR – Nationalist Propaganda Radio
  • MS-DNC
  • FUX News
  • Petroleum Bullshit Syndicate
screen-shot-2016-03-21-at-7-06-30-am
Michael Franti: Television…drug of the nation. Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

I’m all the way Alt-Left. So from my deep political reading, I knew that Hillary Clinton was going to lose all the Midwest states but Illinois and Minnesota.

When I would run into my Liberal friends who would greet my skepticism with, “Nate Silver has Hillary Clinton a 98% likely winner.” I would scoff. The polls were oversampling Democrats who are a much smaller voting bloc since Obama came in.

4.5 million Obama voters became Indedendent. Huge mid term losses in 2010 and 2014 told me the Midwest had abandoned the Democratic Party over economic inequality.

When I would have these conversations with my Liberal friends, they would respond, “Why are you supporting Donald Trump?”.

I knew that Hillary Clinton was going to lose for these 5 reasons

  1. Obama Fatigue – record inequality under his 8 years had Americans looking for a change at the top. Just like Obama won in part b/c of Bush Fatigue after his 8 years. Should have sent at least one banker to jail.
  2. Obama voters would not be Hillary voters. Obama was young and black with a Muslim name. That candidacy resonated with blacks and Hispanics. Hillary is old and white. So minority vote turnout was way down. 137,000 fewer votes cast in Detroit and 129,000 fewer votes in Milwaukee cost her Michigan and Wisconsin
  3. Millennials wanted Bernie. In the same way they came out for Obama they were YUUGE for Bernie Sanders.  When he was aced out, they went back to their undervoting tendency.
  4. Servergate/Wikileaks/Weinergate. At the end her untrustwory numbers were worse than Trump’s. In an emotions vs facts election, that was devastating for turnout and securing independent votes.
  5. Obamacare notices went out in mid-Octboer. Average increase? 24%. Trump wants to get rid of Obamacare. Hillary wanted to “improve it.” She couldn’t come out for single payer, so  if you had your policy cancelled and the new cost doubled (as happened to a classmate of mine in Montana), advantage Trump.

Poli Sci classes will be studying the DNC campaign of Hillary Clinton for decades to come. How not to run a campaign lessons

I was wrong on 3 states:

  1. New Hampshire (for Trump) – I forgot they tend to be more conservative than their New England neighbors
  2. Colorado (for Hillary) – I thought the rural and military areas would reject the Dems.
  3. Nevada – I thought it would be Vegas for Hillary. Reno and the rest for Trump

I had a better result than Nate Silver!

So called polling savant, Nate Silver: 0 for 3 lately: British elections, BREXIT, Pres. Trump

I voted for Jill Stein. And I was wrong on her. I lost a bet (to my Hillbot buddy Aquaboy, in fact), that Jill would get 4%. Not even close! See you in 2020, Doctor Jill!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: July 2, 2016 (Stream + Tracklist): UFO-ria – Roswell in a Rub a Dub Stylee!

images (12)

Greetings,

On the night of July 4, 1947 on a ranch outside Roswell, New Mexico a UFO crashed. That has never really been disputed. The Air Force even released a press release later that week that, of course, that later had to be “walked back.”

Binge watching Ancient Aliens on History Channel, I asked my brother in law – who lives in Albuquerque – about Roswell. My bro in law Michael sells high tech pipe to the labs at Sandia, Intel and even salsa manufacturers. Roswell is on his beat.

He asked someone in Roswell about the crash. One of the old  timers told Michael: the local coroner was instructed by the Air Force to provide 3 children’s coffins. The local coroner was total salt of the earth rural America. He would never have been involved in any sensationalized tomfoolery about UFO’s.

That’s good enough for me. So I harvested all my sci fi, alien, UFO-ria for some late night skywatching in case they come back for more.

Look to the skies! Do not scoff!

bless, robt
