Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: June 8, 2019 – Conspiracies, Casinos, Cannabis & Keith;

Greetings,

Lots of stories on this edition of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives. During our vinyl segment I played a song by Yellowman chronicling the fallen heroes of Reggae music, Many of them murdered: Peter Tosh, General Echo….and Bob Marley? (Lee “Scratch” Perry blamed Island records own Chris Blackwell of killing Bob for his royalties.)

Alex Jones also believes the CIA killed Bob Marley to stop his revolutionary music from influencing liberation movements in South Africa, Palestine and Central America. My cryptic comment. How does a black man die of melanoma (skin cancer.)

<Did the CIA kill Bob Marley? 27 sec.>

On a more positive note, the state of Illinois is so broke they had no choice but to legalize the seven leaf — through their legislature. Signed by the governor! Now it’s 11 down, 39 to go!; 41 sec.

Illinois also legalized casinos throughout the state. State Casino Board chairman, Al Capone III, said blackjack and cannabis are a winning combination that rules the nation!

<weed and casinos in Illinois; 71 sec.>

Al Capone spins in his grave: legal weed and gambling

And lastly, a guy who likes weed, Reggae and probably conspiracy theories, one Keith Richard, guitarist of the Rolling Stones shows his love of the rub-a-dub by covering Half Pint off the Dirty Work CD.

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-pril 13, 2019 – Emotional Rescue!

<Emotional Rescue is dub?; 44 sec.>

Greetings,

Having some bourbon over at my buddy Aquaboy’s house. He, I and our friend Mike like combat glaucoma Friday afternoons with some music on the Hi Fi.

My choIice was Rolling Stones – Emotional Rescue. In my elevated condition I’m sitting by the right speaker and noticed the dubby echo of the title track. Mick’s falsetto, Bill Wyman’s bubbling bass and Charlie Watts tapping out a retro Reggae riddim.

Praise Anu! That’s mutant dub! Sounded almost like the Public Image Limited LP Second Edition.  A-tonal echo and meandering pace.

As a drum and bass follower, I always thought Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts are underrated for their syncopation. In my mind, they are the best things on suspect Stones albums like Undercover and Dirty Work. (Before I got into Reggae, living in Montana the Rolling Stones were my most listened to group.)

<Stones drum & bass; 26 sec.>

So listen keenly at around the 2 hour and 30 minute mark on today’s Ark-ive for Mutant Dub Rolling Stones – thus I decree.

Rolling Stones, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman September 1981

Also, this show is a prelude to next Saturday’s penultimate 420 blow out on 4/20, April 20th. I harvested 15 new soundbytes, bong rips and movie trailers

10 down, 40 to go!

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Podcast & Playlist): Jah-ly 7, 2018: UFOria! Roswell inna Rub a Dub Stylee!

Weather balloon my ass!

<Smile Jamaica: Ancient Astronaut Theory HQ; 21 sec.>

UFO by Tena Stelin (lyrics transcribed by Bobbylon)

  • Everywhere I stare, everywhere I go
  • Almost everyone is talking about UFOs
  • More and more each day I hear the people them say
  • Men and men are talking about UFOs
  • Aliens are coming
  • They say the time is now dawning
  • Sometimes if I wonder if the aliens are here already
  • Astronomers are debating
  • And their religions are arising
  • Jah what is to be if it is the will of He
  • Everywhere I stare, everywhere I go
  • Almost everyone is talking about UFOs
  • More and More each day I hear the people them say
  • Men and men are talking about UFOs
  • Elijah went up into a Chariot of Fire
  • Dragon objects were recorded in ancient America, Australia and Asia
  • So many paintings and drawings were found in many caves and mountains
  • Could this be the evidence that Spacemen came?
  • Everywhere I stare, Everywhere I go
  • Almost everyone is talking about UFOs
  • More and more each day I hear the people them say
  • Men and men are talking about UFOs

Greetings,

Ancient Astronaut Theory is: Were they Sky Gods or Ancient Astronauts?

The modern phenomena of UFOria: Euphoria + UFO started on July 2, 1947 with a crashed space ship on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico.

Scoffers and the Deep State would call this a “weather balloon”

Why Smile Jamaica?

2 reasons

  1. My brother  in law told this story about coffins and Roswell

2. After I retired from doing Radioactive interviews on KRCL, I needed a new time suck away from Progressive politics.

That led to my 10 year bromance with this guy and Ancient Aliens TV show on the History Channel.

Giorgio Tsoulakos. Head of Trump’s Space Force

As an Assyrian-American, I knew full well who Marduk, Ishtar and Anu were. In my benighted state, I just thought they were mythic gods of Assyria, Babylon and Sumer (Shinar in the Bible).

Oh, but no! They were Sky Gods and Space Travellers who invented mankind to mine gold, sleep with Earth women and then tried to get rid of us noisy humans, their creation, with a massive flood.

Ancient Astronaut Theory about these Sky Gods aka Anunnaki – Those whom came from the sky. All those stories  of the Bible and quite a bit of Greek mythology derived from each Anunna (Anunna singular; Anunnaki plural).

And all those UFO encounters in the Bible!

Flying Saucers of the Old Testament

Ishtar/Inanna – Goddess or Ancient Astronaut/Geneticist

Jacob’s Ladder, Ezekiel’s Wheel, Enoch’s disappearance, Stairway to Heaven, Burning Bush, Noah’s Ark, Elijah and his Chariots of Fire – all UFOs. Add in the Arabian 1001 Nights Tales of Magic Carpets and the Hindu Vimana fighting space ships.

Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of smoke, not salt. From a nuclear attack on the Sinai when the Anunakki unleashed a hellish civil war that destroyed Sumer/Shinar in a “bitter wind”.

Back to UFOria…..

So I start to do what I always do: comb through the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives looking for Reggae and other songs devoted to UFOs.

And last year, near the Roswell crash anniversary in early July, I lead off with the theme from 2001 Space Odyssey, the Kubrick film, and juggled about 40 Space Oddities. Most Reggae/Dubbish. Some not. Today as well.

Joe Cocker, Nina Hagen, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Elton John and the bad ass Vulcan, Leonard Nimoy

Mr. Spock always had a good ear for the drum & bass

Last year, my bredrin Mike was in a coffee shop. He over heard the baristas talking: “I don’t know what Robert was doing on Smile Jamaica. It was more about UFOs than Reggae.”

Is that good? Is that bad? Yes!

Either way, it makes you think about radio. You don’t get stories from Pandora or Itunes.

And that is why I do it for 30 years. To make you think even if it is out there on the perimeter where are there are no stars. And we is Stoned Immaculate……

Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Snowbound Excursion – Jah-nuary 27, 2017!

dscn1134

Greetings,

I knew it was gonna be trouble. Last Saturday we got 6 inches in the Salt Lake Valley. My garage is in the alley way. Dangerous for getting high centered and sliding into power poles.

So I waited for a lull in the storm and moved my car to the front street.  My street was unploughed and there was snow accumulated over the curb.

Loaded up my stacks of wax and suitcase of disks. And headed for KRCL.….

Goosed my All Wheel Drive Subaru to plow through virgin snow. Best intentions….. 4 wheels on top of snowpack just skidded me to the curb and I was wedged in a snow drift and dead in the water.

Two hour wait for AAA. First show I had been a no show for in 27+ years.

So after I got towed out and back into my garage, I hunkered down in my Secret Dubratory and pulled together 3 hours of Digital Dubplate sound.

Snowmageddon Stylee!

bless, robt

Roswell Daily R soecord: July 9, 1947 – no doubt they crashed, so Extra Terrestrials are real

<Two stories on the date of the Roswell crash>

True story on Roswell:

My brother in law sells high tech pipe to agricultural, research labs, salsa manufacturers. He lives in Albuquerque but travels the length of New Mexico.

One day in Roswell he asked his customer about the 1947 UFO crash. Was it real or bullflop?

His customer said: the local mortuary owner, salt of the earth rural America. Veteran. Straight shooter. The Air Force came to him and asked him to provide 3 children’s size coffins.

“If that’s what he said, that’s how it happened”

Friday Nights

Ancient Aliens TV – Friday Nights on the History Channel. This explores the various connections between Earth’s history and Alien contact before there was recorded history.

<My love of Sumerian history led to UFO-ria; > 2 min 6 sec

Basically Aliens from Nibiru called Anunnaki (Those who came down from the sky) who came to Earth b/c we had the gold they needed for their ruined planet. They were essentially too lazy to mine the gold themselves so they created a race of humans to do the work. When the humans got too noisy, they were destroyed with a flood.

Click image for a better view of how Nibiru’s orbit intersects with Earth and the Sun

Mystery-of-Nibiru-orbit (1)
The 12th Planet Nibiru – 9 planets, Earth’s moon, the Sun, Nibiru. Elliptical orbit from outside the galaxy toward the Sun

Every 3600 years the orbit of Nibiru approaches earth: The Anunnaki drop their space ships to space ports in:

  1. Sumer (lower Iraq)
  2. Sinai (Egypt) – the pyramids are guide posts for entry
  3. Baalbek (Syria)
  4. Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan)

Humans mine the gold. Nibiru whips around the sun heading back out to the edge of our Universe, the ships go up and land on Nibiru for the journey home.

They will be back in 3440 AD.

2. Zecharia Sitchin

An Azerbaijani Jew who translated thousands of cuneiform texts that showed what we know from the Bible and Greek Mythology were actually much older from original source stories from Sumer.

His book series, Earth Chronicles, discusses these topics

zechariasitchin
Zecharia Sitchin – the original Astro Theologist
508957
7 volumes of Aliens on Earth. Stories from the Bible and Greek Mythology came after their Sumerian originals

What have I learned from my bingewatching and binge reading?

All those stories from the Bible and parts of stories from Greek Mythology,  Iraqi A Thousand and One Nights, Hindi religious literature is all “plagiarized” from my ancestors the Sumerians (I am an Assyrian from that area on my mom’s side. Assyrians adapted from the Sumerian cosmology).

What is in the Bible or world literature that relates to Alien space travel?

UFO’s in the Bible

Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:

Anunnaki, Anu-Anunnaki
Anunnaki, El Kuluwm

Flying Saucers
Them a chat bout on-ya
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
