From Courtship to Breakup: an Irie Mix for the Love Month

2

Contrary to popular belief, reggae is not just for getting high. Nor is it all about cannabis. What is abundant in this genre is love.

Here’s a mix i created for the reggae lovers in all of us. I hope you enjoy.

The Courtship

Mr John Holt puts it easy “I’m not the kinda man who give up just like that”. Just wait and be true with your intentions.

The Tide is High, John Holt

Now if you’ve got chemistry, go for it!

Good Thing Going, Sugar Minott

The Relationship
If there’s one thing reggae is good at – it’s for sexy time :D

Grooving Slowly, John Butler Trio
Sweat, Inner Circle
Stir it Up, Bob Marley

The Misunderstandings
There will always be those who will try to break you up.

Can’t be my Lover, John Legend ft. Buju Banton

And it will pile up if you dont talk about it.

Satisfy my Soul, Bob Marley

And if you’re both not strong enough.

Do you Really Want to Hurt Me, Culture Club

The Breakup

Something’s gotta to give.

Hurt so Good, Susan Cadogan

So tell yourself whatever. We all go through denial.

✘ Youtube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZQ6zVfEb8DU<figcaption>Too Experienced, Barrington Levy</figcaption>

Then the realization hits.

She’s Gone, Bob Marley

Post Break-up

Then we go through depression.

Aint no Sunshine, Horace Andy

And more depression.

Lonely, Pepper

But no matter how painful the hurt may be, there’s always hope.

Sun is Shinning, Bob Marley

I’ve put all these in a playlist in grooveshark.
So spread the love!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
