Bob Marley, A true legend





ammonkc
I have always been a huge fan of Bob Marley. where I'm from some people practically worship him and his music. so this weekend I took the time to download every album ever made by Bob Marley. it took some time and ended up being about 8 Gigs of disk space. But that is a collection worth having.
soulman
How much did you cost with these 8G songs.......... that must be a huge number of money......

Money?..
ammonkc
Not sure, most of them have been ripped from a collection of CD's that I started about 12 years ago. I also ripped a bunch of my friend's Bob Marley albums to fill in the gaps. I only had to buy about 7 or 8 albums online to complete the collection. but it was worth it.

Bah Damien, Ziggy and his other son all suck. Bob is the king of Reggae Culture. I have all of his collection CDs.

Yes, He is a true legend ever. His soul make the reggae music to shine. Good addition in his music.

The only thing I know from him is....he smoked weed a lot

It's a shame to reduce a man's life to his affinity for marijuana, especially when it is part of his religion.

Bob was a truly gifted musician, political activist and diplomat. His music and his attempts to bring peace to a war torn Jamaica should be the topics about his life, his devotion to his friends, family and homeland.

If you are going to get past his use of drugs, at least think of the odd circumstances of his death. Interestingly when he planned an appearance at a show in jamaica in an attempt to restore tourism and reduce violence, political factions who were at odds with the group who Bob supported sent havily armed gunmen to kill him. They failed at their attempt, despite having filled a small home with tons of automatic weapon fire. Bob was thought to have very powerful religious protection based on this miracle. Later in life while playing soccer with friends Bob suffered a nasty wound to his toe. The wound became infected and based on his beliefs, Bob would not have it treated by non-traditional medicine and doctors. The infection became worse and eventually became cancerous. Bob's believed he would be healed by his religion and would not allow an amputation. It is this wound that would eventually kill Bob.

yeah bob marley is a kingggg
mtoni
His music is great !

a while back when I was in Rome with school we listened every night to Bob Marley Smile with some fine booze. It's way relaxed then Very Happy
ammonkc
yeah, At least 3 - 4 nights a week I sit around a kava bucket and listen to bob marley all night long. nothing gets you relaxed better.

Hey Ammon, is it legal to ship kava to the mainland?

and where are you on the north shore? near Kona on the big island or are you on Oahu?
ammonkc
I'm on Oahu. Punalu'u more specifically. but I do most of my mixing in Laie. I don't know if there are any legal issues with sending kava to the mainland. I would imagine that there is because I think you are required to declare agriculture stuff. but we ship kava all the time. never had any problems yet. When I was going to school in the mainland, we would have our friends send us kava all the time. but I've found that pretty much anywhere you go, even on the mainland, you can find a house that sells kava.
hrdfarkr
man I miss Hawaii, Oahu and kava...and mai tais, and clear water...NY is not the same.

Is there a better kava one you would say is better then all the rest?

When you said Punalu'u I assumed you meant on Hawaii again, near Kona is the black sand beach...its also called Punalu'u.

There is a great restaurant on the north shore, on that long twisted road between kaneohe and the north shore (Kamehameha hwy?)...i'm sure I spelled that wrong, but anyway...great food.
ammonkc
Yeah, Hawaii is great. I was just at Mai Tai's last night. 10 feet was there. the quality of the kava really just depends on the root. but in my experience Fijian kava is really good. kava from Fiji tends to be pretty potent.

Yes Bob is the King of Reggae! He was the first to take it out of Jamaica and he did it successfully. After that Jamaica is on musical world map.
I don't know if you guys know that Bob's band was a Ska band at first. I guess a lot of ganja made them play more and more slowly.
I love the hole Reggae culture! And it is not only the music it's the way of looking at the world!

I find that the music is mentally and physically relaxing, just the rhythms of it seem to be soothing. After that its very memorable and easy to like.

Simple stuff I guess.
