Happy Aloha Friday! (Blog Link)

PSA: For some Valentine’s day is shored up, reservations have been made, hands have been properly exercised for neck and back rubs…For others, you’ve just been reminded, for the third time this week, and you are scrambling to see if 1800 Flowers or Bouqs can deliver flowers on time (you’re welcome).

Any day to celebrate Bob Marley is a good day. Here is an excerpt from a previous post of mine:

During my formative years, I was obsessed with Bob Marley. I found every bootlegged cassette of his live performances, VHS of his concerts and documentaries…I even rocked a Natty Dread  (some would say successfully) from 1997-2003 (check out the side by side below).  Bob was an inspiration in so many ways; the accessibility of his music, the message it contained, the looseness of the groove. While many critics feel that Bob’s music was protest music, meant to inspire people to overcome oppression in their lives…and I don’t think that’s necessarily wrong…to me, his music was also about love, uniting people across the world, and recognizing the interconnectivity of it all. In fact, the effect of his music was just that, connecting the world through his music, THE universal language. As Bob said, in Trenchtown Rock, “One good thing about music, when it hits, ya feel no pain!” Here are some additional amazing Bob Marley quotes that show his prophetic, passionate, and sensitive side, as well as some Bob Marley Fun Facts.


And take a long listen to some of these Bob Marley tracks! No Woman, No Cry (Natty Dread Version), Could You Be Loved, Coming in from the Cold, Natural Mystic, Rebel Music, Bob Marley Greatest Hits Full Album - The Very Best of Bob Marley, Bob Marley | Live at the Rainbow (full concert)
