, greetings to one and all. nuff tings a go on since last issue and I'm
sure that there's still more to come. We ain't seen nothin' yet!! Passings,
comings and goings.... our co-editor left us for higher heights. Rest irie...A.D.....Nuff
respect still.....The music scene has been steadily flowing on with crucial
arguments coming from both ends after certain artists' performances were
classified as ' not being a true projection of what rasta/reggae should
be up to in the 90's '. It will take hectares of print to fully cover such
as heated issue. Black history month passed with lots of speeches and workshops
mostly on a purely educative level. Is that all? Some discussions were even
off limits to non blacks or non browns.....Don't laugh...it's true and serious!!!!!
Tommy House celebrated its 25th year of 'occupation' and the public had
a chance to learn a little more of its past, be immersed in its actual presence
and go home to ponder about its ultimate fate. Concertwise, most of the
'names' passed through and delivered...special mention must be made of Muta
(what's in the Umbrella?), Wailers, Lucky Dube, Buju to name of few but
big respect to all who passed!! Well attended shows that prove that berlin
does indeed have a massive reggae'. Finally we public....but they also like
"good" reggae and not just cheap imitations wrtapped in its gold
and green. They like to 'feel the Spiritmay be hearing about war and rumours
of war because man can not communicate.....properly......Too many languages!!
If everybody understood everyone else, then maybe there would be a better
chance of clearing up our difficulties. Sometimes and in some places, 'bad'
can mean 'good'. Language is a key that unlocks secrets about lots of things.
we will introduce our readers to a little known but widely spoken language,
Kweyol. Its history, use and character, will make interesting reading for
foreign language buffs.
one is for the brothers....in fact I an I want to show the hows and whys
of the behaviour of certain sistrens who claim to look for Jah through his
Nuff idren get 'checked' either by the 'bluefoot' or by the blue eyes just
because they have locks and the longer the locks the more the beholders'
often hazy misconceptions haunt and prompt them into keeping away or getting
into direct confrontation/contact with the I.
Some get easily lured into the snare of cooing and wooing members of the
(un)fairer sex and when he's been won over, the next move is to look for
other fish to fry. Then we see the symbol of the (?) who knows and been
through most of the dreads etc etc. It would never have been so had it not
been for the laxness of the I's who just let themselves be bowled over.
and man must help the lost sisters who just want to see and participate
in the lesser joys of life.
