Celebrate Bob Marley’s Birthday

"Hippies and flower children of the 60's would always describe one sick beat of any nature as being "Groovy" or "Far out". We feel the same way. It doesn't matter if it's guitar, bass, violin, piano, ukulele, anything! This is the beats that intoxicate our brains, blow our minds, and really send us ...well... Far out man." ----> Got suggestions for music? E-mail Dignan
Bob Marley Birthday
On May 11th, 1981, Bob Marley fell a fatal victim to melanoma of the toe, because his Rastafarian beliefs prohibited him from being buried an incomplete person. Born on February 6th, 1945, Bob Marley would have been 69 years old today, but even though he is gone his legacy still thrives through his songs, philosophy, and the emotional impact he played in radically changing the face of politics in an effort to preserve and promote peace. The father of Reggae, the burner of ganja, and the leader of a counter-culture movement, Bob Marley stands today as a prominent figure in the Stoner culture, where he represents, in an Obi-Wan Kenobi fashion, tranquility, Stoicism, and the ability to maintain an expressive and vehement free spirit. Among other decorations he achieved during his lifetime, Bob Marley has been immortalized in a variety of ways including being awarded the Jamaican Order of Merit in 1981, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March of 1994, and receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in February of 2001. Today, the posthumously published album, Legend, enjoys the most album sales out of any other record with over 14 million copies sold worldwide, receiving outstanding reception as one of the most prolific pieces of music ever recorded. If you would like to learn more about Bob Marley, the man, the legend, the divine, then check out the following video entitled "Caribbean Nights," as it covers the evolution of Bob Marley and the Wailers into the sensation that they were.

Bob Marley was one of the most inspirational singers/activists/writers that the world has ever experienced. He brought factions together with his music and he soothed the souls of multiple generations. Here is a video of him and his band performing "Stir It Up". If you have any personal drawings of Bob Marley, kick them on over to Me.

Adidas is Down with the Rastafari

"Why make a category for everything? The world lives on the brink of destruction, people are as apathetic as ever, and chronological whimsical forms of the structure are the things that are keeping us down. Fuck the system, Fuck the structure, and BY GOD here at Stoner Schematics we say FUCK Categories (...sometimes)."

Adidas has this new line of clothing called "Adicolor" in which you can choose whatever colors you want to match your overall persona. This commercial highlights that but with three very distinct colors. My overall thesis: Adidas is down with the Rastafari.

"Half-baked is probably one if not the greatest Stoner movies of all time and we believe this category is best summed up by the great, talented, and verbose Jon Stewart. Enhancement Smoker (Jon Stewart): "Did you ever see Scent of a Woman?" Scarface: "Yup." Enhancement Smoker: "You ever seen Scent of a Woman... on weed? That's the way to see it. It's just wacked." That is what this is, high movies or shows. Not necessarily ratings or anything like that, but movies or shows... well ... high."

This kid knows some good music when he hears it. If I ever have a kid hopefully he/she will be able to enjoy the smooth Reggae tones as much as this little guy does. Although, buffalo soldier wouldn't be my first choice of songs to play for them...perhaps three little birds or no woman no cry (my personal favorite).

I ran across this 90's commercial on YouTube... I am pretty sure it is old-school propaganda, but I find it oddly hilarious. Also, I may have ran across a depiction of him...
