SKRS Reconsiders the Vampire's Curse

*re-post from

"Court not the romance of darkness - for demons need love too -
Lest the consequences persist long after the bite is delivered
And a cataleptic slumber fall pon u!"
                                                                           - Baba Raaas
When She and the night conspire to conceal the Light
And the moon consents to cast Her haunting allure
The depths arise and stake their claim; a gnawing hunger for infliction
A sinister joy in the air rattles shutters with accursed laughter
Suffocating plumes of panic and confusion dance in wild frenzy
"Murder Soundbwaay!" never before sounding so fatal

Inna dis ya soul clash - the classic battle for soul domination - SKRS performs their own brand of dub exorcism on all dark hearts.  In their medicine bag they arm themselves with THE quintessential Scientist codex, a golden chalwah, a ten foot stalk of herb and some holy water.  May Jah have mercy on us all and rid our hearts of all evil curse dem!  Out now on Boomarm Nation

close enough...

One year to the day I was surrounded by love...
It lifted me high into the open sky and I returned the feeling from deep within my soul.
Recovery was slow...
Today, I am still surrounded by love, but the joyous gathering around it has long since dispersed...
I am here alone as I type these words.
Sometimes it causes me to tremble.

i wish people were talking about THIS lewis...

the OST

music forms a soundtrack in-and-around my life. yes, i know this type of thing has been said before, but as i play a copy of bryan ferry's "don't stop the dance" 12" on the right (turntable), i feel its words and groove propelling me into the day. hitting deep down, it's pepping me up and exciting my soul. the moment is here! i am going to go for a little jog right now. may the rhythm continue to play even when i lift the needle out of the groove... i know it will. PEACE
