Give thanks

YES I STEVO U'RE RIGHT ABOUT THE RADIO STATIONS HERE, WE HAVE TWO LOCAL ,COMMERCIAL FREE RADIO STATIONS. SOME LOCAL DJ'S GET DOWN LAYING SOME TRACKS FOR US LOCALS THROUGH OUT THE WEEK. YOU CAN FIND THEM ON 88.1FM(KZSC)AND 91.5FM ONE OF THEM IS PUT ON @THE UC HERE.
AND YES WE DO HAVE SOME VERY TRUE RASTIFARIANS HERE, IF U'VE NEVER BEEN HERE THEN HOW WOULD U KNOW U CAN'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING U HEAR, RIGHT?
I KNOW THAT U WOULD LOVE IT HERE, IT'S LIKE NO OTHER PLACE.
WE HAVE A BIG HIPPIE CROWD YES, BUT IT 'S MOSTLY CAUSE IT'S SO EXCEPTED HERE, WE HAVE EVER KIND OF PERSON HERE REALLY! WE ALSO HAVE A FEW SHELTERS AND FOOD BANKS, SO THEY COME TO PARADISE , AND STAY COMFERTABLY AND FOR FREE!
SC IS A TRIP THOUGH WE HAVE SO MANY FREAKS, BUT THAT'S WHY I LOVE IT HERE. WE HAVE SO MANY CONCIOUS TRUE PEOPLE HERE, A LOT OF GOOD MUSICIANS!
HAVE U HEARD OF EARL ZERO, OR OZOMATLI, OR SAMBADA, OR DUB CONGRESS, OR MAYBE BRIMSTONE!! THEY'RE ALL VERY TALENTED MUSICIANS AND LOCALS AND LIVE IN SC.AND I KNOW I'M FORGETTING A LOT OF NAMES TOO! TO SAY THAT WE DON'T HAVE TRUE RASTIFARIANS IS IGNORANT WHEN U'VE NEVER CHECKED IT FOR YOURSELF! U'VE HEARD THEM SAY RASTACRUZ! RIGHT?
THATS WHY, NOT JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF HIPPIES HANGIN OUT DOWN TOWN! AND A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT LISTEN TO REGGAE MUSIC.
SANTA CRUZ IS UNIQUE AND LIKE NO OTHER CITY TRUST ME,
THIS TOWN IS FULL OF LOVE AND HAS MOSTLY TRUE CATS HERE , AND YOU'LL HAVE MANY BLESSINGS IF U CARRY A NICE VIBE AND DON'T FRONT LIKE A LOT OF PEOLPE DO,AND REALLY JUST BECAUSE U LISTEN TO REGGAE MUSIC AND HAVE NAPPY DREADS DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOUR A RASTIFARIAN!

I actually have been to Santa Cruz plenty times JennCruz . . . I even went to some shows.. I just don't know many people there.. and from what I have heard from Rastafari sistren here, the vibes are hippies that have an admiration for rastafari. Rastacruz?? Ohh Jahh...
Well give thanks for the info anyway, I will be heading that direction this Sunday so I will keep a broader observation. More love for the ocean and redwood trees.

i was looking for a definition of "shine eye" and found this poem. without condoning duppys i think it is kind ofnice and maybe what jenncruz was intending with her :irie eye shine eye gal".

Shine Eye Gal by © Ward Kelley
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is a voice, a haunting by notes,
a voice to this ghost, stretching notes on and on,
to implore, to yearn, the breathing ones to come forth
. . . to be judged.

There is a dead woman singing in my ear,
her name is Puma, running, running,
eyes haunting sounds of night gliding
by the skin of jungle cats who hide the souls
of those who might be judged.

What does this ghost want to sing to us
who breathe the air of our own desires?
She does not sing words, for only haunting notes
are singular enough to bear a soul forth . . .
to bring one of us forward.

This, then, is what the ghost
will do . . . she will sing
of wrongs and cinder love, she will hum of injustice,
this ghost in my ear; she will yearn and she will think
oh why come forth, oh why, only then to die . . .
but we all must sing this particular song,
although few know what the ghost
did sing . . . how the only judges
of us all, at the end of all the breathing,
the only judge is our very own soul
who must judge the actions of its
own singular life.

Yes, then, it's what the ghost
still knew, her own soul
judging her alone;
one sees it in her eyes.

Artist's note:

Sandra Jones (1953-1990), received her Masters at Columbia University and went to Jamaica to labor in the social work field. She was overheard by aspiring reggae musicians as she sang a song in her apartment, a sound they later described as 'ethereal.' Together, they formed the group Black Uhuru, with uhuru being the Swahili word for freedom.

Sandra assumed the name of Puma Jones, and the group went on to be highly successful, earning the first grammy by a reggae group.

Michael Rose, a member of the group, once defined Puma's singing, "To tell the truth, she couldn't sing reggae that much, but she had a unique sound, something between jazz and opera. It gave us a different flavor, a sound nobody heard before." Starting to lose her health, Puma left the group in 1986. She died of cancer on January 28, 1990.

DIRTWEED THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT INFO, THAT WAS VERY INSPIRING TO ME AND INTERESTING. I LOVE BLACK UHRU AND HAVE MEET MICHEAL ROSE BEFORE. I LOVE HIS VOICE HE'S A LEGEND FOR SURE!
I ALSO AM SOMEONE WHO I FEEL IS BLOSSOMING RIGHT NOW INTO THIS WOMEN I'VE WANTED TO BE FOR A LONG TIME I'VE BEEN YEARNING FOR THINGS AND TO MAKE MUSIC AND SING IS THE FIRST AND MOST STRONGEST DESIRE I'VE HAD FOR A LONG TIME NOW. I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO REGGAE NOW FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS, BUT REALLY I JUST LOVE ALL MUSIC AND TAKE A LITTLE BIT FROM EACH STYLE I HEAR. BUT REGGAE IS TO ME MY FAVORITE!
ANYWAYS ENOUGH ABOUT ME, I JUST THOUGH IT WAS REALLY INTERESTING THAT U DESIDED TO TYPE IN THAT INFO ON THAT WOMEN PUMA JONES IT 'S CRAZY HOW THING WILL FLOW LIKE THAT. LIFE IS GREAT REALLY U JUST HAVE TO WORK AT IT, HAVE FAITH AND PRAISE JAH!AND YES U WERE RIGHT ON ABOUT ME TRYING TO EXPRESS MYSELF WITH THOSE LIRICS, BUT REALLY I PROBABLEY WASEN'T EXACTLY SURE ON THE EXACT DEFINITION, I JUST LOVE THAT SONG AND I'M PRETTY SURE IT'S ORIGANALLY FROM BLACK UHRU RIGHT,? I KNOW BERINGTON LEVY SINGS IT AS WELL, I LUV HIM TOO! BUT I THINK IT WAS STEMMED FROM BLACK UHRU!!
BLESSINGS,
TAKE CARE
ONE!

My old yard - SC whatup! Ok - actually, I was Felton, Ben Lomond and up in the hills, REALLY miss the redwoods. I also wanted to mention Root Awakening and Herb Daily also hail from SC (Johnny what happened to you - haha) - they are a great band - played at ROTR a few years back with Casper. They even played SNWMF once now that I think about it...anyway - great band. If you want some real irie vibes head up to the Boulder Creek Brewery - the bartenders will usually play your reggae Cds... if Bob isn't playing already.

Kevin and Zayne - you out there? Get yer butts to the show! Dean and Aubrey - same!
