Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-bruary 20, 2016: Bern One Down!

IMG_1669
Bern one Down!

This is a fallow period around the  Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives.

Green Bay Packers done until September. San Francisco Giants don’t start for another month. 2016 = even year = World Series.

images (2)
Winners: 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016. Don’t H8, appreciate!

So what do I do to soak up the down time? I have been following the Democratic Primary race: Foreman vs. Ali, Jordan vs. Magic, Hillary vs. Bernie.

I’m not voting for either of them. I’m a Jill Steiniac. but I love how competitive it has gotten. Odds on favorite, Hillary, trying to stave off an outsider’s populist counter. In 2008 it was Pres. Peace Prize. Now it’s a 74  year old Jewish Socialist.

Hillary has the elites. Bernie has the 99ers. So out on the Youtube some enterprising media person promoted his candidacy via an awesome mashup of Ben Harper’s Burn one Down synced to Bernie’s “finger in the air, like he just don’t care!” mannerisms

Wave your finger in the air like you just don’t care!

The Harper tune is a nyabinghi ballad with acoustic guitar devoted to the Seven Leaf. As Bern One Down this clip matches the drum chop-chop to Bernie’s finger gestures.

You can’t endorse a candidate on non-commercial Radio, but I thought people would get a kick out of it.

<Bern one Down! 1 min 12 sec.>

Give thanks for all the listens, forwards, reposts and favorites on the Smile Jamaica Mixcloud page. Together we have grown the Mixcloud weekly SJ listens from about 25 three years ago to over 100 now. Forward ever backwards never!

You help me get in the charts of Roots Reggae, Vinyl, Dub and Reggae. Give thankx!

Fess up Bernie. Hillary stole it fair ‘n’ square!

Greetings,

Super Bowl 50. Meh.

Since Green Bay isn’t in it, I have only a passing interest. I am rooting for Denver only because their back up QB is from Kalispell,  or Collie-spell, Montana. Borck Rottweiler or some such.

Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party candidate for President. Smile Jamaica approved

But in the Hillary vs. Bernie hoe-down (no pun intended), I’m kind of like: tastes great, less filling. In our winner take all “Democracy”, you can only  have 1 winner and 1 loser.

So I ‘n’ I gwan Bern one down, till I vote for Jill the Thrill in November
