Subject: RE: Willie Nelson, Reggae, and Walmart
So okay I blew it when I said "It's all irie"...

"It's all alright"...That probably isn't the way Jamaicans would say it. I guess they'd say "Everything's irie".

How I messed up was trying to use 'irie' like the African American phrase 'It's all good"...

But what I was tryin to say was "Willie Nelson..do your thing..or do somebody else's thing which you're making your thing.

And my thing can be his thing can be anybody's thing 'cause all music belongs to everybody, right?

I just hope that he's giving props to all those he's borrowing from and interpretating....

From the article, it seems like he's doing that.
