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.

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!

Grinding it out at work trying to avoid the flu and the colds brought about by Utah’s chunky air. Flu shot was a dud. Everyone in my family except me got it. Praise Jah!

Smile Jamaica’s second favorite green

Sunday Night conundrum: My two favorites are playing at the same time. Praise Jah for DVR. Packers versus Saints. So I’m watching the World Series live while I “chop up” the Smile Jamaica Jah-loween Monster Hash 3 Hour Blast.

World Series: Royals vs my Giants. Madison Bumgarner is the Royals nightmare. Three down, 1 to go!

***

bochy
Manager Bruce Bochy throwing the hairy eyeball against the weaksauce American League with their lame Designated Hitters. Fiya bun the DH!

Been a fan of both teams since I was in elementary school.  Suffered through decades of thin gruel till they started getting good with the sugar high (ha ha) of Barroid Bonds, the pre-perv Brett Favre era.

I got the dubble dose in 2010-2011. Giants finally broke through since they relocated from NYC to San Francisco in 1958. (I was so happy I bought a new car the day after they spanked the Rangers 4 games to 1).

Then when Brett Favre was showing his ding a ling to a bunch of gals, Aaron Rodgers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 leading the Packers to victory in the Super Bowl.

Posey
From the San Francisco Chronicle, “Buster Posey said listening to the online Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives this past year helped raise his batting average 17 points over 2013.”

And after a roller coaster season, here comes the Giants again. However, I must admit. I grew up a Dodgers fan until something outrageous happened that made me hate Dodger Blue like Rastas hate pork chops.

Growing up in Fort Benton, Montana our family would pack up for two weeks every summer. Big old Ford Station wagon. My dad had to drive about 1250 miles each way. Back in the wooly days before MADD, he’d grab a sixer of Olympia beer and head out on the open road.

My grandfather lived in Turlock, Collie-fornya (home of Niners QB Colin Kapoernick) but if we were gonna check Disneyland and Knottsberry Farm, we would head for our relatives who lived in Hawthorne (home of the Beach Boys).

Probably through that connection I was a Dodgers fanatic. Here is what kind of fan I was: I won my age group’s Punt, Pass and Kick competition in Fort Benton. Rather than compete at the next level in Great Falls, I stayed home to watch the Dodgers play the Oakland A’s in the World Series.

Oct. 1974. The era of 3 channels; no VCR’s; no DVR’s.  The A’s spanked the Dodgers 4-1. I remember Dodger first basemen Bill Buckner being thrown out at home and I started crying. (9 years old.) I wasn’t a bit surprised he effed up that grounder to first as a Red Sock in 1986.

79-27Fr
Bill Buckner 12 years before immortal infamy as a Red Sock

Wheel it forward a few years. The old school Dodger manager, Walter Alston, retired. Tommy Lasorda took his place. Brash and Italian where Alston was serious and pensive. Lasorda might have been a paisan but he was Hollywood all the way.

Tommy Lasorda is the reason I became a Dodger hater and a life long San Francisco Giant fan. What happened? Tommy Lasorda committed the heinous crime of playing himself in a television episode of the 70’s crap TV show Fantasy Island. Mar. 28, 1978: That was an unforgivable sin.

Fantsy Island Mar. 1978: Steve Garvey, Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalban), Dodger player, Sicilian ham actor/manager Tommy Lasorda. There is a thin line between love and hate

The next week the 1978 baseball season started. In order to be an anti-Dodger, the only play was to become a San Francisco Giants fan. 35+ years later whenever I see that camera hog Tommy Lasorda I throw the malocchio his way.

Go Giants!
