Dubroom Online, Edition September 30 2009


"EZ TRAX" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 30 2009 - Today, we end our daily series of presenting a free and legal track from the EZTRACKS.com website.

An interesting website, if only because it has a rather extensive collection of old Wailers tunes. Among a lot of really nice Roots Reggae tracks which fit very well in the total spectrum of reviewed music on the Dubroom.

On the other hand, you really have to want to have these tunes, for the registration and download processes are not really that simple. Additionally, they have a lot of karaoke and cover songs presented as the real thing.

Whatever the case: it really is free and legal, and it is (DUB) Reggae, so we feature it on the Dubroom.

Just like our series of daily MP3 reviews, which doesn't stop today!

One Love, Give Thanks,

JAH WOOSH

Dubroom Online, Edition September 29 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition September 29 2009


"JAH WOOSH" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 29 2009 - Today and tomorrow, we feature a great Vocal and Dub by Reggae DJ Jah Woosh.

His album "Marijuana World Tour" is a cult classic among a certain kind of people for obvious reasons, but the track we feature is more than crucial for everyone who likes their 70's DJ and DUB vibes.

Tracks, actually.

Tomorrow's featured MP3 Review is the excellent Dub Version of "This Natty Allright", which also carries the vocal sounds of Horace Andy.

I wonder why Jah Woosh is not more known than he is among lovers of the better Roots and Culture. Hopefully, the two MP3's will contribute to spreading Jah Woosh vibes among a wider audience...

NO GENERATION GAP

Dubroom Online, Edition September 28 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition September 28 2009


"NO GENERATION GAP" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 28 2009 - Today, we feature the Power Steppers in our series of daily MP3 Reviews. It's another collective in the Musical Discipline we know as UK DUB and ROOTS.

We also feature another track from the Wailers that you can download legally for free from the EZTRACKS.com Website. Music from a time wherein a lot of us were either just born (like yours truly) or not born at all.

It shows the strength of Reggae Music, in a way.

Music that can be decades old will appeal to the generation I know myself to be a part of (born in 1965), or the generations after that, where new music like that of the Power Steppers will not just attract younger listeners.

Dubroom Online, Edition September 27 2009


"FROM THE WEBROOM DIARY" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 27 2009 - As we approach the end of this first full month of daily MP3 reviews, the catalogue in the Dubroom's MP3 Portal gets more and more interesting.

In fact, I think that the tunes you can find there and are scheduled to be placed in the Portal at a later date make the Portal more interesting than it has ever been before.

In the same time, the brand new section of Dubroom Artist Pages finally links all the Dubroom Reggae Reviews together even though the work is by far not finished.

A lot of work, but all of this is as significant as previous major updates of the Dubroom Website.

I have to write a long addition to the Dubroom's Site History, which you can find in the Section especially for new visitors of this website.

TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (10)

Dubroom Online, Edition September 26 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition September 26 2009


"TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (10)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 26 2009 - Fortunately, most people who are sympathetic towards the New Age philosophy, do not realize the sinister plan behind this all.

Most are into it for the "vibe" or for the "healings" that you can get by representants of the New Age Movement. Or they're caught by ideas such as the ones proposed in the popular Internet video "Zeitgeist".

These people should perhaps take a good look at the Ten Commandments In Stone that you can find in the State of Georgia, USA.

Not only do they order the killing of 80% of the world's population, they equally propose a global state which the Bible calls "The Days of Noah" and adepts like Adolph Hitler and Aleister Crowley called "Atlantis".

It's Mystery Babylon, sung about in too many Reggae tunes to mention. Tunes, which a lot of people in the New Age Movement love to listen to.

TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (9)

Dubroom Online, Edition September 25 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition September 25 2009


"TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (9)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 25 2009 - There are many in the Online (DUB) Reggae Community who have a lot of sympathy for the Internet video "Zeitgeist", wherein New Age philosophy is being presented as "Truth".

The "New Age", which many believe to be planned by the evil ones in the year 2012, is like paradise in the eyes of those who indeed believe what is presented in that video as truth.

The fact that this very same devil philosophy wants to kill 80% of the population and even has the nerve to write it down on two giant tablets of stone in some kind of perverse imitation of Jah's Ten Commandments In Stone given by Jah through Moses, should be considered as one of the most important pieces of information to share with all the "Zeitgeist Lovers"...

TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (8)

Dubroom Online, Edition September 24 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition September 24 2009


"TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (8)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 24 2009 - The very popular Internet video "Zeitgeist" is being promoted by a lot of New Age minded people as "the" movie that "exposes" "Babylon System".

In reality, it promotes the exact same philosophy as that which is written in the Georgia Guidestones, the ten commandments of Satan where the first one is to kill 80% of the world population.

I was recently confronted with this (once again, I might add), when someone claiming to be the head of the Guidestones Preservation Foundation told me "good luck for your relocation from the planet" after I denied to accept his devil philosophy as truth.

A serious thing, even though the specific threat I got is not to be taken seriously on a personal level. Still, it is exactly what it is: a personal death threat in the Name of the New Age.

TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (6)

Dubroom Online, Edition September 22 2009

Dubroom Online, Edition September 22 2009


"TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (6)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 22 2009 - The Georgia Guidestones can very well be described as the Ten Commandments In Stone by the Antichrist or Satan.

Rule number one is to kill off 80% of the world's population and I had just -over e-mail- received a personal confirmation of my own "relocation from the planet".

After all, I refused to go along with any philosophy that wants to kill Jah's children in order to re-create the situation on the planet before the Creator sent the Great Flood and killed off all the abominations that had come into existence during that time.

Now, of course, I do not seriously fear the threat which was given to me. But I do know that there is a group who consider what these Guidestones say as "common sense".

And no, they're not (just) called "Nazi's".

Dubroom Online, Edition September 21 2009


"TEN COMMANDMENTS IN STONE (5)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, September 21 2009 - When you read: "You have thrown away your future on this planet. Best wishes for relocation.", you have just read a death threat.

The same death threat as the one we can find on the Georgia Guidestones, where we can read how killing 80% of the world population is the first out of ten commandments written on giant stone "tablets".

I read these words after being invited by email to join the Luciferians who want to kill off 80% of the world population in order to create their "Atlantis" and obviously denying their "invitation".

The person who invited me to join their Atlantis gang claimed to be the head of the (Georgia) Guidestones Preservation Foundation. He had pointed me out to a website which he claimed was created by the wife of the founder of the Georgia Guidestones.

And now that I refused to believe him, he had personally decided that I was not going to be surviving whatever he -or his spiritual masters- have in mind.

WWW, September 20 2009 - After being confronted with someone who claimed to be the head of the (Georgia) Guidestones Preservation Foundation and who had directed me to a website which he said was created by the wife of the founder of the stones, I needed to write back.

I had just discovered that I was basically being asked to join the Luciferians who want to re-install "Atlantis" and for that they need to kill off 80% of all of us.

When I answered the guy that I did not believe him, he replied to me with the following words: "That is truly sad. You have thrown away your future on this planet. Best wishes for relocation."

Of course, I had to reply to this death threat...
