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-cember 14, 2019 – Santa Claus is an Alien!

Greetings,

Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests: Santa Claus is an Alien.

<Santa’s Sleigh was a Spaceship; 22>

UK singer Chris DeBurgh thinks so. So does Reggae singer John Holt.

Alien roots of Santa Claus; 65 sec.

Noel Baba – Father Christmas for Christian communities in modern Turkey. St. Nicholas to Western Christians
  1. A flying sled to ancient peoples in modern day Turkey where Saint Nicholas came from is obviously a spaceship.
  2. He didn’t land on rooftops, it was the green tractor beam. Gifts going down,  in return for abductions going up!
More believable than 12 reindeer pulling a fat white dude full of gifts across the skies

3. Rudolph’s red nose? WTF? Tracking beacon on the nose cone of the Spaceship

4. What about that star in the East where the Magi were bringing gold, frankncense and weed? Spaceship!

Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests: The star in the East was a spaceship
More likely occurrence

So when that Spaceman comes travelling on Dec. 24th, now you know where the true history lies.

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-cember 7, 2019 – 3 Songs for 30 Years!

Greetings,

KRCL celebrated 40 years on air with a party in downtown SLC. My tenure of that for Smile Jamaica is 30 years. (31 and 1/2 total).

I attended the birthday bash and it was great to see a lot of volunteers I hadn’t talked to since KRCL’s format change in 2008.

Plus there was a great love of what I ‘n’ I do with Roots Reggae and Dub with many listeners who were happy to meet me and pass on their thanks. Great to collect stories from people and how they discovered and continue to enjoy my sets on Smile Jamaica.

People love my commitment to vinyl!

The common thread is what Smile Jamaica means to their Saturday afternoon routines. For decades. Fathers and sons. Mom’s and dawtas. If I ‘n’ I had accepted every drink offer, I would have been a drunken mess! (However, it would have been downright rude to decline surreptitious hits of green vapor. Ask me no questions, and I’ll tell you no lies…)

It really was a validation of my joy of community radio that is still driven by independent music selection. Where you might hear a Scorpions Reggae jam followed by some UFO dubwize.

You ain’t gwan hear that on your Spotify playlist.

Spotify Reggae vs. Smile Jamaica. Computers or a human?

When my great friend and now KRCL station manager, Tristin Tabish asked me to spin a 15 minute set between bands, I ‘n’ I agreed.

This is essentially I ‘n’ I speech from the stage.

KRCL celebrates 40 years of all killer no filler radio. It has been my pleasure to be a part of that ride for 30 plus years.

“And KRCL has always championed Reggae music from day 1. Dreadlock Holiday to Smile Jamaica. My bredrin Rutabaga Reese taught me about quality Roots Reggae. Much love to Papa Pilgrm on Nite Roots.”

“For my set, I ‘n’ I was asked to put together 15 minutes of Smile Jamaica. How do you distill 10,000 albums. 10,000 cds and 10,000 singles into 3 songs?”

“A little bit of Marley. A little bit of 420. A little bit of dubwise.”

And Selah! Did the crowd roar when that opening lick of Bob Marley’s Smile Jamaica blast forth on the club’s hi-fi!

Thank you KRCL. And thank you KRCL listeners for the kind words for this deejay on your station that rules the nation! Forward ever, backwards never.

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-vember 16, 2019: Your Perception is Not My Reality!

Greetings,

I ‘n’ I was fighting glaucoma with my bredrins Mike and Aqua Boy. I was laying out my Presidential strategy for taking down The Cheetolini in 2020:

Tulsi-Bernie

America’s only hope in 2020

With the JFK coup anniversary looming: Was it Bin Laden on the Grassy Knoll? Discuss!

But then the discussion took a turn. When baseball season is over, I ‘n’ I turn to a new time suck: Ancient Aliens on the History Channel.

I was talking about the documentary’s 2 hour tribute to Erich von Daniken, the Father of Ancient Astronaut Theory. His book, Chariots of the Gods, lit the fuse for a whole generation seeking a connection between ancient astronauts mis-labelled as Sky Gods by mankind.

I took to the alternative cosmology of Ancient Astronaut Theory late in life. But I should have been into it for 40 years….

I grew up in a small farming community in North Central Montana called Fort Benton. Beautiful little river city. We had a theater and a drive in. It was a short bike ride from my house to go see a movie to get out of the sun.

Fort Benton, Montana – the Birthplace of Montana and cattle multilations

It was sometime, summer 1975. I was ten years old. The movie was Young Frankenstein: Mel Brooks, Marty Feldman and Teri Garr. But, in the lobby was something that really intrigued me: a whole display of cut outs, movie stills and placards describing Chariots of the Gods. The movie.

One of the stills described a picture in Ancient Assyria; my mother’s homeland in the Fertile Crescent. I was totally enthralled and could not wait to see it in two weeks!

Coming soon to a farm implement dealership

The following week, the movie theater went out of business and became a farm implement manufacturing business. Cursed!

****

Wheel it forward to last weekend. I was regaling my mates, between bongrips and bourbon, of the story von Daniken described from the Bible: Ezekiel and the crystal ship. A wheel within a wheel.

Ezekiel 1:14-28. Ancient Astronaut Theory

 14And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.

18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.

19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

That, my friends, is the description of nothing other than a space ship which travels by gyration, the wheel within a wheel!

What the Prophet Ezekiel saw in the Old Testament

<Ezekiel’s crystal ship>

My bredrin Aquaboy, who reads dinosaur media like the New York Times and The Nation magazine, was not having it. He was giving me the red eyed hairy eyeball.

The hairy eyeball

So I’n’ I zone in on the kill shot: The Ancient Aliens episode devoted to Chariots of the Gods’ legacy talked about one of the original NASA scientists who thought von Daniken was a crank and set out to use physics to debunk the wheel within a wheel.

His name was Sidney Blumrich…

I ‘n’ I, who does not read the New York Times nor the Nation, never got to finish…Aquaboy was full on scoffing. I ‘n’ I held up my hand and calmly said,

“Your perception is not my reality.”

They’re here. They’ve always been here. And they’re coming! Scoffing won’t save you!

bless, Bobbylon

Bobbylon’s Top Ten Biblical Alien Encounters

  1. Moses and the burning bush – spaceship
  2. Ezekeiel and the Crystal Ship: the wheel within a wheel aka a gyroscopic spaceship
  3. Stairway to Heaven – walkway to a spaceship
  4. Enoch – Noah’s grandfather who walked with God and then was not
  5. Lot’s wife – turned into a pillar of smoke, not salt after Armageddon was destroyed in a nuclear attack
  6. The New Jerusalem – Borg cube massive space ship
  7. The Nephilim – Biblical giants describing the Anunnaki who created mankind and mated with their women
  8. Noah’s Flood (1) – Utnapishtim in a tessaract spaceship to wait for the flood waters to recede (Sumerian origin story)
  9. Noah’s Flood (2) – Ziusudra in a submarine to wait for the flood waters to recede (Sumerian origin story)
  10. Jacob’s Ladder – spaceship walkway (see #3)

How about some examples from Islam and Hinduism:

  • Magic/flying carpets
  • The Prophet Muhammad’s midnight journey to Heaven on the back of a winged horse Al-Buraq. Buraq means “lightning” in Arabic (one man space capsule)
  • Descriptions of flaming minarets in the sky (missiles)
  • Hindu Vimana’s: space chariots fighting battles
  • Shiva’s Trident – missile
Al-Buraq “lightning”. Took the Prophet Muhammad to heaven from earth….spaceship!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-tober 26, 2019: Bone Yard Skank!

Greetings Ghouls ‘n Gals,

I live in Sugarhouse; on a narrow street that only has one street lamp. I rarely get any Trick or Treaters and my Doc says high fructose is not Ital. And I have a physical coming up in 3 weeks.

The last thing I need is a bunch of left over candy. On Halloween night, my doorbell camera picked up two sets of kids at my door. They were adorable. And I felt guilty. It was a record cold night.

Next year I’m gonna put a little dish near my front door and let the tykes grab whatever they want.

Just don’t do this!

Urban Legend: Stoners giving edibles out for Halloween

So enjoy this 3 hours of All killer….literally Jah-loween tunes: From driving around Kingston in a coffin to  “roll a lickle spliff wif di papyrus”. Horror bytes, movie trailers and the monster menagerie!

From your Undead station that rules the nation!

curse, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-tember 14, 2019 – Vinyl Vindication That Rules the Nation!

Vinyl set to outpace CD sales in 2019

Greetings,

<Vinyl vindication: vinyl to outsell cds; 1 min. 55 sec.>

I’ve always been a record guy. Back in Montana as a youth, I would drive 35 miles each way to record shop at the local Hastings outlet in Great Falls. Usually buy a couple pieces of vinyl and a cassette for the drive back home.

Bankrupt 2016.

When I moved to Utah for University in 1986, I was already dabbling in CDs. In 1985, Cactus Records in Bozeman, MT had a small rack of CDs in a corner of the shop. I remember buying Fleetwood Mac and the Police Outlandos d’Amour. $16.99 (in those days a fortune). I didn’t even have a CD player yet.

For Christmas, I got a Fisher deck, (probably from Montgomery Wards), – 1 drawer, no frills: just the song number in red LED. I was blown away! Space age technology in rural Montana!

Bought this CD before I even owned a CD player. Fall 1985. Bozeman – Cactus Records

What’s not to love? Smaller. Harder to scratch. Easier to store. Portable players to play them on.

Yet, the smaller size and lack of information on many of the disks didn’t make collecting CDs as enjoyable as buying vinyl. Especially, when I switched to collecting Reggae. Early on in CD’s history there was not a whole lot of Reggae available. And a total lack of the 12″, 10″ and 7″ vinyl I especially was looking for. The rarest of the rare.

Jimmy Cliff’s Reggae Greats. Probably the 1st CD in the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives

I was in a Record Shop in San Francisco. Summer of ’87. Up to my elbows in vinyl racks. The shop owner was trying to up-sell me into CDs. He was like, “Why are you so hot for vinyl? Everybody is moving into CDs”. I shrugged, “I’ll always be a record guy.”

Here is how it worked back then. CDs were new. And expensive. So, many people sold their vinyl for pennies on the dollar to add up cash for CDs.

Vinyl was cheap and plentiful. CDs were exotic, limited in selection and expensive. So the stores were in transition from black wax to shiny metal disks. I built the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives this way: buying other people’s vinyl discards.

All the great things you hear me play today came about through hoovering up as much black wax as I could in the voluminous Bay Area Record stores. I was flush with student loan cash (Thanks Ronnie Raygun!) and I went from store to store digging through the crates.

I would stay at the Travelodge across the street from Tower Records in North Beach: Columbus and Bay. Some days, I would be tired after a day of cratedigging. It was awesome.

*****

Wheel it forward 30 plus years. Most of the record stores are long gone, (Hastings went under in 2016),  via over committing to CDs in a digital age of iTunes, Pandora and Spotify. People wised up and started piecing out vinyl for the Ebay collector’s market.

I saw a VG- record with a water damaged cover go for $400 on ebay. My cost? $4: Streetlight Records San Francisco

But for 20 years, I maxed out the opportunities even if around 2005 I started to notice stores were no longer there when I would visit.

When Tower Records and later Virgin and Circuit City went under, that was the nadir of my CD era collecting.

Record and DVD stores were crushed out of business during the 2008-2010 Great Recession

That is why when I heard on the news that 2019 will be the first year since 1986 that Vinyl is expected to surpass CDs in aggregate sales, I felt a sense of vindication.

Vinyl sales to eclipse CD sales in 2019

2019 to 1986 = 33 years. And what RPM does vinyl spin at? 33 and 1/3. Coincidence or prophecy!;

<33 years since vinyl last sold more than CDs. Records spin at 33 and 1/3 RPM; 40 sec.>

And as none other than Joe Biden said in the Sept. debate: play the turntable at night for the kids. Makes “sensi” to me Joe!

<The 7 Leaf inspired wisdom of Joe Biden; 27 sec.>

Makes “sensi” to me, Joe!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-ly 6, 2019: UFO-ria!

Greetings,

When you get to do a radio program on a non-commercial station for 31 years, that entitles one to some indulgences.

For I n’ I that is mashing up Reggae music with UFO’s. WTF?

<How I ‘n’ I got into UFOs; 27 sec.>

The connections of Smile Jamaica to UF0ria (UFO’s + euphoria = UFOria).

  1. The TV show Ancient Aliens on History Channel; 55 sec.

2. Which taught us about the 1947 Roswell UFO crash

<Roswell UFO crash, July 1947; 90 sec.>

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)

3. Ancient Astronaut Theory – the notion that Sumerian sky gods were in fact ancient astronauts coming from the outer edge of the galaxy. As an Assyrian-American, anything to do with my ancestors in Mesopotamia/Modern Iraq fascinates me.

4. The Skygods from Planet Nibiru* called the Anunnaki. Anu (sky) + na (verb – to go down) + Ki (Earth.) Those who came down from the sky.

*Also called Planet X or the 12th Planet

The Anunnaki created mankind to mine gold for their home planet (under climate change devastation….). When their creation got “noisy” and the minor gods were having sex with Earth women, the decision was to wipe out mankind with a Flood

<Who are the Anunnaki?; 75 sec.>

5. The connections between space travel and descriptions of celestial phenomenon in the Bible.

  • 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 heave in a space ship
  • Magic carpets in the Arabian Nights – space ship
  • Vimanas from Hindu cosmology – space ship

<Ancient astronauts in the Bible; 27 sec.>

Stairway to Heaven – Page and Plant Ancient Astronaut Theorists?

<New Jerusalem in the Bible is a gigantic cubed space ship; 37 sec.>

New Jerusalem is not a city but a huge space shipReggae and Dub have plenty of songs about outer space and UFOs.

6. And now the US government  can’t keep UFO encounters secret or in the realm of “conspiracy theory”. Too many people with phone cameras. A new show on History Channel, Unidentified, covers Air Force, Navy and Deep State reports of UFO encounters with Tic Tac UFO’s.

<Unidentified TV show on History Channel; 75 sec.>

Roswell, The Anunnaki, Ancient Astronauts lead me to comb through the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives looking for UFO/space travel songs. I have about 150 CDs and another 50 LPs/vinyl singles.

So like my other theme shows, like Jah-loween and 420, enjoy these space age tunes from Reggae, Dub, Calypso and even a few rock tunes sifted in.

And as I say: Look to the skies! Do not scoff!

And if they are here with malevolent intent? Let’s go out with a bang!

bless, Bobbylon
