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: June 9, 2018 (Stream + Tracklist): Utah #30?

 

Utah Medical Marijuana in 2018? Life elevated indeed!

Greetings,

Congratulation to the hard workers who want to add Utah (Utah!?) to the list of states with Medical Marijuana. If successful, Utah would be the 30th state with either Medical or legal status for cannabis.

<Medical MJ in Utah? 59 sec.>

Utah Medical Marijuana on the 2018 ballot

154,000 (including I ‘n’ I) voted for this initiative to make the ballot. It’s about time. Especially in Utah under the crushing weight of opioid deaths and over medication of anti-depressants.

Opioid deaths drop in states where Cannabis is legal

It’s not about kickin’ the bong around. This plant has been with us for 10,000 years of mankind. We have cannabinoid receptors in our brain! The Sumerians called it the Tree of Life.  It wasn’t an apple Eve partook of in the Garden of Eden. 

Hey Marduk, don’t bogart that Tree of Life. Puff, puss pass it pon the left hand side!

And for any Blble enthusiasts. It wasn’t an Apple that gave Eve knowledge in the Garden of Eden. It was Cannabis. Unless they used an apple bong

Cannabis not apples in the Garden of Eden

Genesis 3: 2-7

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

****

Fruit of the Tree? Buds off the Cannabis plant. Nothing about apples. Biblical “fake news”

Hey Adam, let’s twist up a spliff. We can eat apples when we get the munchies

All I ‘n’ I can say is:

  1. Get registered to vote
  2. On election day 2018, wake ‘n bake
  3. Get in your car, bike, pony, walk or skank to the polls
  4. Vote yes for cannabis compassion
  5. Don’t let governments, cops nor religions dissuade you
  6. Puff, puff pass this law!

And then there is this!

bless, Bobbylon

Blessings to those who worked hard for this on the ballot come November.
