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.
<Gilgamesh; 51 sec.>
