New Midnite

IanI was in a Brooklyn yesterday riding around reasoning with my Rasta Fam and I ran into this culture music store and herd some Midnite I ain't never herd be for, The reason why is that it just droped this week. This is the craziest album I think I ever herd it doesn't matter if you are into reggae or not go get this. If you have stereo system that has alot of base turn it up all the way.This album is based on sound waves so when a individual listens to it creates chemicals in the brain that really make you feel positive. All music creates subliminal message weather positive or negative.Hearing is the ability to collect, process and interpret sound. Sound vibrations travel through air, water, or solids in the form of pressure waves. When a sound wave hits a flexible object such as the eardrum it causes it to vibrate, which begins the process of hearing. The process of hearing involves the conversion of acoustical energy (sound waves) to mechanical, hydraulic, chemical, and finally electrical energy where the signal reaches the brain and is interpreted.

Marky Mark

We just seen the new Ridebmx video "insight" an our boy from good old long island is shining hard. Alot of people who ride bikes are sleeping on Mark Gralla an don't kno hes been doing his own thing for so long and hes from long island.We used to meet up with mark all the time to ride he lived a couple towns away from us so he would take the train in an everybody would meet up with him at the train station. We usually ride around or wait for another train to bring us all the way out east to greenport skate park at the tip of long island. I remember mark all ways being a trooper he would be down for anything that let him ride his bike more. Many times mark as stayed at justins house on the floor while justins dog did him grimy by chewing his shoes and shirts. Mark would stay on the floor for weeks during the summer to ride.We made this street/skatepark thing  called pieconic one summer. We had the best time riding ever. Me Mark Russ Justin an all the medford locals progressed so much back then but when the place got shut down we diden't have a place to do any thing we learned so we lost them and we where bummed,but mark was on the grind  trying to ride. He used to take the train into the city and the bus to philly be for any of us thought about riding out side the island. We where pretty young to go that far back in the day .We soon parted ways mark was all ways in the city and we where riding russ's ramp in his back yard .I think we didn't ride together for like 2 years and then mark came out on a cali trip to ride an stayed at our apartment. When we came back to the east we would meet up with mark in philly an cruise. Mark No's philly like the back of his hand so it is all ways fun. I cant wait till it gets a lil warmer. Sessions allday an night. Mark 's riding is as tru and original as him. Marks keeps it real.

Muta is a poet that sprang up in the early roots reggae era late 70s,he looked at getting his message threw different from everyone else that was laying down tracks. He seen that alot of his friends where putting in work and not reaping the reward they deserve. Alot of the record companies used the songs and played them on the rock radio sations in America, England and Japan. The artist never seen any cash flow, but where big reggae stars in those country's. Muta wanted to support the cause, but be as independent as he could be, so he started putting out books of poems which the hole project consisted around what he wanted from start to finish. From the  color, to how the book was made, to the publisher, how it got published, and what material was used to make it . Muta spits heavy fire when it comes down to life ,no matter who you are or what you do he can guide you to find your self  in any giving situation you are in (you can lead a horse to water but you cant make it drink). Muta has traveled so many places holding Rastafari to the full while embracing other eastern philosophy's. I recently just got a chance to talk with him it was very very irie. 
The man spiritual is above all
The man thinkin is “me”
thinkin on the care of my body
of my worldly possessions
never stoppin to know
that all worldly

This picture above shows a male herb plant sprouting seeds for food. On a female plant buds would sprout from that area where you see the little seed sacks.Hemp seeds are the edible part of the cannabis sativa  plant. They are a tiny fruit-like nut covered by a hard shell and part of the "achene" family (similar to sunflower seeds). Hemp seeds can be pressed for oil, milled into a protein powder, roasted or shelled and made into Hempmilk. Hemp seeds have been cultivated as a food for centuries, from China to Europe to Africa. While Hemp and marijuana are both varieties of cannabis sativa , hemp is grown for food and fiber, and contains only trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the component of marijuana which alters the body.

To attain optimum health we must eat foods that contain live enzymes, active phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, and essential fatty acids. These elements are termed "essential" because the human body does not produce them. They must come from the food we eat. Hemp seed is one of the plant kingdom's most concentrated, complete and balanced sources of essential amino acids (EAA's) and essential fatty acids (EFA's). Hemp seeds are high in essential nutrients including chlorophyll, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, phytosterols, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, fiber, histidine, iron, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, niacin and thiamin.
Hemp seed contains all 10 essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Hemp seeds contain 33% pure digestible protein, providing readily available amino acids for building and repairing tissue. Hemp seed protein is comprised of 65% high-quality edestin protein, the most potent protein of any plant source, 35% albumin protein and glutamic acid. The globulin edestin in hemp seed closely resembles the globulin in blood plasma, and is compatible with the human digestive system. It is vital to the maintance of a healthy immune system and is also used to manufacture antibodies. Albumin is a protein manufactured by the liver that is supportive of liver and kidney health.
Hemp seed protein has many advantages when compared to soy, the most commonly used form of supplemental plant protein. Soy protein contains high levels of enzyme inhibitors blocking the uptake of trypsin and other enzymes the body uses for protein digestion. Eating a diet high in enzyme inhibitors, such as those contained in soy, can result in chronic amino acid and protein deficiencies.

Hemp Seed Essential Fatty Acids 

Hemp seed is rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids as well as being one of the few plant sources of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). EFAs are utilized by many of the body's systems to maintain proper tissue function. EFAs are required for energy production, proper functioning of the nervous system, brain development and function, skin health and elasticity, digestive efficiency, normal cardiovascular function, hormone production, and efficient immune response. Studies have shown that GLA improves memory, and overall mental health, as well as reducing symptoms of skin ailments like eczema and even fibrocystic disease.

Due to the popular misconception that fat is "bad" for the body, many people have adopted a low or no fat diet. Low and no fat coupled with the widespread consumption of processed and genetically modified foods have created EFA deficiencies. Leading researchers are finding significant links between EFA deficiencies and disease. Supplementation with EFA's is an integral part of a healthy nutritional program.
