"FRIDAY THE 13TH?" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 13 2009 - The reason why superstitious people believe that they shouldn't really do a single thing on Friday The Thirteenth is because in a time and place during European history the Freemasons were kicked out of France at a Friday the 13th.
No reason for panique, therefore.
Let's leave the Freemasons in their memorials, and let's look forward to a week wherein Dubroom Online will feature eight MP3's with musical works by Reggae vocalist Ras Edi Fitzroy.
A more than remarkable vocalist, and not just because he has a style of singing that has yet to be approached. Equally, at least with most of his lyrics, it would never hurt to actually pay some attention and take them a bit serious too.
One Love, Give Thanks,

ITEMS FOR THIS EDITION:
WWW, November 13 2009 - Money Lover brings us back a few decades, in what some preterists would call the "Golden Age of Reggae". Enos Mac Leod sings over a more than fine steppers rhythm in a tune that should be heard by the now generation as well.
WWW, November 2009 - When you're born in the ghetto's of Kingston, the sound of the gun is as familiar as the sound of Dancehall music. Edi Fitzroy knows where he sings about in this 2006 remix, as he calls on people to lay down their guns and start top read up their Bible.
WWW, November 2009 - The inside of Channel One studio's isn't unknown to Carlton Livingston. The Rub a Dub singer, who gave us classics like 100LB Of Collie Weed, started to record in 1977 on Channel One's Hitbound Label and the rest is not just history, but present as well.
