6mm-Minis

6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

MUSIC: Hassidic Reggae Artist?

.
Hi Guys,

I thought I'd seen it all, but I obviously haven't!

Check out this video:

I've long been a fan a Reggae music and recognized alot of Jewish themes in Reggae music, including the tunes from one of the greats: Bob Marley. Hearing words like "Zion" are very common in Reggae music. I once even saw a Passover Reggae soundtrack (I think it's still at Amazon.com). I can only imagine...

Well, now, that whole convention is being flipped on its head with a Hassidic (Ultra-orthodox Jewish) Reggae music artist. check out Matisyahu:

I haven't heard his tunes yet, but, WOW! What a trip!

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.
