why not, can you be an environmentalist and live in the modern world? I find the word trustafarian to be lacking, I here you on the snob bit, but I find that more from people who label others with cute names like ohhhhh.....trustafarian. Bob rolled in a BMW all day and all night so slow your roll. Shoot, the Taliban was driving 4 x 4's

Re: Reggae Snobs

Well, a BMW doesnt use twice or more petro than a normal vehicle. If you really need a 4x4 for work reasons, or getting to your home, I could understant. But when you live in a house that has access to the street, why use more than you need. Oh I know why, it is the American way.......
Re: Reggae Snobs
March 18, 2005 05:44PM
my point is c'mon there are so many more factors that contribute to the destruction of the environment. Cars in general. Cigarette smoke, the Beef industry, I see what you guys are saying, I am not that ignorant. But it seems like an easy target. I always find vegitarians who don't eat meat cause it is cruel, yet wear leather and smoke cigs to be my favorite label and target. they don't want drilling in Anwaar, but they bitch about a tax on cigs. How was that for some labeling?

Kind Herb-
You're just plain wrong. And I'm not even talking about your point of view on the Gay rights issue. It's not a JA ting, it's a Bible ting. And since you don't know shat about it, what are you acting like you do, for? But as for your point of view, You're wrong about that too. And Papa Briggy is right. :0) And for all a yall who aren't going to his shows any more......you won't be missed. And for everyone who thinks Jah forgives and never forgets.....you don't know what you're talking about either. Figure it out, by thinking about that one a little harder. Jah don't forgive like man claims to forgive. Cho!

Re: Reggae Snobs
March 18, 2005 10:43PM
Sorry Stevo, it is a JA thing caue it sates in the New Testement that none of us is good, so what the hell is Jerry talking down to folks for? NONE OF US IS GOOD. This comes out of the mouth of the MASTER. How can you call gay and lesbian dutty, when JAH HIMSELF SAYS THAT all are unworthy? this isn't about me or anyone else trying to make The Teachings pallatable to modern society or to say "Hey can't we all get along" This is about people who mis interpret and mis inform others about what is of HIM and what is not. If you disagree then attack the following points.

1)A which of us is good according to the New Testement teachings of The Holy One who has returned as Selasie I?

2)According to these same teachings which of us should be judging others?

3)Again, according to the Teachings which of us is in a position to know who is "real" and who is not?

4)What is the greatest commandment of them all according to the Master who revealed Himself to us as Selasie I?

5)How is calling someone a "faggot" or you can plug in any nmame you want compatable with the greatest commandment?

We are to be in this world, but not of it. Name calling and labeling is the result of the culture of man and not of HIM.

Thanks Acacia. Did you go looking for that one, or has it been under your skin since you read it? Or maybe I've been under your skin? Funny you've never addressed me on this board until your golden opportunity to try and drag my name in tha mud. Just sayin.

Stevo, pretty much. I don't have a problem with most things you say. I don't necessarily agree with some of your views but it is your right to express them and I don't think badly of you for doing so. It is when you openly depreciate people for their views that I can't have respect for you. All believe they alone, hold the truth. If you speak to others with humility, I believe you will be respected.

Re: Reggae Snobs
March 22, 2005 03:21AM



I'm still on what Alisha wrote in regards to ''Big ups for having

confidence in feeling that one is better or more worthy of raspect,love

compassion, than another person. ''The stone that the builder refuse,

shall be the head cornerstone''. How does that quote from ''Christ''

relate? It relates in the sense that even in Jesus's time there were

those Pharisees and Scribes who thought they were better than all

the rest of the Jews and Romans. In reality, they were so threatened

by one, Jesus Christ, Yeshua the descendant from the tribe of Judah.

He was humble, yet majestic, a healer, who preached love, and

equality,never claimed to be more worthy or better. Big-ups to the

humble and meek, they are the true rasta and righteous.

Re: Reggae Snobs
March 22, 2005 04:57PM
Stevo, you got me twisted. First of all Ninja stalks his prey. Secondly, all I was sayin is that it isn't a Biblical thing. If it were there would be a whole lot more said about the behaviors we all witness at a mucis festival. It is the same issue I have with many cultural Christians, They will walk through hell and high water to ban gay marriae, yet what about the homeless? WIll Pay Billions to invade and destroy in the name of "saving lives" Yet can't fight a "war" against HIV/AIDS because there are no funds. What I am opposed to is people picking and choosing Biblical postitions that suit there own cultural biases and do not directly effect them. Such as gay marriage. While it is true that the Bible does not condone gay marrigage it also does not condone divorce or premarital sex. If you are a stragith guy/gal living in the West which of these do you pas a law against? You might need toget a divorce and Lord knows premarital sex is now the norm, but Hey I ain't gay and I ain't gonna be so lets pass a law against them. HYPOCRITES. This is the main problem facing "oraganized religon" (I am not sure there is any other kind) that WE are selective in our beliefs, this is cultural not Biblical. Peace Stevo, say something more contraversial and we can go at it more directly. I got no problem with your posts we just crossed paths on this one.

I drive an old '85 Buick, the cassette player doesn't even work. So I guess I'll never be a reggae snob, whatever that is. So be it. I feel no loss.

Ninja- I fully overstand and agree with your point. Yes, though the Bible is clear on it's standpoint with the topic in question with Briggy, it is also clear on many others. People are quite selective at times, with the battles they choose to wage. So I see what you mean about this being a cultural thing(when coming from a JA recording artist). I suppose I was looking at it on more of a right or wrong level. Respect.

Re: Reggae Snobs
March 23, 2005 04:16PM
You DON'T have to smoke weed to enjoy reggae.

People who are only into reggae due to it's connections with the herb are not true music fans and have something lacking up top.

Would you inject heroin if you were a punk fan and heard a heap of punk records saying it's cool to do so?

Gordon
Re: Reggae Snobs
March 23, 2005 04:29PM
But Gordon, when you take into context that the music we conceived, written and played in an altered state, you have to agree that there is a certain validity to understanding the music in that same altered state.
True, you don't have to smoke weed to enjoy reggae, but it sure can help!

I would not listen to Punk messages of Heroin use. Not my scene. I was not stating you had to smoke weed to enjoy Reggae, just some posters on this board have stated that somehow if you relate to the weed in the music you are getting less from it than them. As far as lacking something up top I would think people who are engulfed, literaly, by music which they relate nothing to would be the ones lacking.

Miz Alisha, Blessings and all the very best to you and your child.

I married a fine woman last year, who has two girls, 7 and 9. Their father
nevah sees them, no support, abusive, etc. Guess who they call 'daddy'?
& now refer to their biological dad by his first name. Those men who sire
children and ignore their responsiblity will reap a whirlwind EVERY TIME.
What would alla we do without strong women???

By the way, my youngest girl is stone in love w/ Bitty McLean's 'On Bond Street',
singing along in the house(don't mean to bore you single men w/ such domestic
tranquility)....

Re: Reggae Snobs

Yes respect to you Alisha.

A few years ago I had a bad accident at work and was almost killed. I survived but haven't been able to work since. I give thanks that I am still able to get out and about and check gigs and listen to this wonderful music. I guess that I'm lucky as when I was struggling to pay my rent and eat, eventually my dad invited me to live back at his place once more so now I have a little bit of money to buy a few 7"s or some CDs sometimes.

When I was working I had a real good wage and used to buy pure tunes - like 15 or 20 7" a week and 5 albums - over a duration of about 3 years, so that's how I got a big collection.

But it ain't a contest - as long as you enjoy the tunes you've got, that's what counts.

unfortunately, most "sufferah"s dont have money to do any of those things you mention let alone put food on the table. consequently, i would have to disagree with your statement. music is "made" (that is, records/cds are pressed) to sell to those with at least enough expendable income to let off on non-essentials like music in recorded form. if it were truly made "for the sufferah" then there would be a lot more "sufferahs" starting with the people who invest their money in recording the music because no one would be able to buy it and they would be broke.

know how to end up with a small fortune from the reggae music business?

start with a large fortune.
