Best up-to-date sites

My four favorite sites to visit daily were:

Blood and Fire Forum
Roots Archives
Achis Reggae Blog
Reggae Vibes

three of the four are long gone and I don't know where to go for news, rumors and reviews. So what are the better sites to keep up? Right now I've just got Rootfire and Reggae Vibes. This site is cool but pretty slow. I don't do facebook so those are out.

good sites are hard to come by. I especially miss good reviews of albums, Although there are still some sites doing that work.

Speaking of reviews....

thumbs down for the latest ska release from Michael Rose. No need to venture into the ska world. Seems like an attempt to do something different.

It was sad hearing Yellowman on his interview with Sir David Rodigan a few weeks ago. The effects of cancer have really taken their toll on his voice (let alone his deejaying voice). Although he had too many songs dealing with slackness, his personal story of triumph over incredible obstacles is inspiring.

I was able to catch Steel Pulse in late August. I was impressed with David's voice and his energy (he's not getting any younger). I only wish they could have brought a full brass section to provide more melodies and a bit of punch.

I don't do FB either. Until recently I was living remote up in the mountains where there was no
highspeed so i didn't have access to FB and now that i do have access I'm not interested except
for a precious few FB which more serve as multi-media type journals.

I too feeling somewhat sad about Blood and Fire forum biting the dust and likewise the attendance of
this forum decreasing too due to the entropy of the FaKebook and Twit-type age.

A friend is not something you computer click on. A friend is someone you click with.

To i, this next generation's social media is more personal or organizational focused, while
the previous forum formats were more topic and theme focused but, c'est la vie. Perhaps
when i have some new music to publicize I'll publicize via a FB page but, for now no time
for too much of those anti-social medias

Daniel & SNWMF familia - Do hope you keep this forum live. If you even need a hand
don't feel no way to call for support, even a likkle crowdfunding$ if need be.

Pama forum is where many of the B&F and Roots Archive members migrated. Plenty of knowledge folks there. It's not just discussion of Pama.

Facebook, for all its fault, is the most active community for reggae discussion. The Blood & Fire and Roots Knotty Roots groups are worth checking out, but not as useful or searchable as the forum format.
