Episode #120: Rasta Rock Opera & Bullied Brony, Buddy Bestfriend


We were awed by the rock star among us in this 120th episode of The JellyVision Show. Stevie Marco, Founder and Creator of the new group, Rasta Rock Opera whose album, Respect and Love Revolution will be released Feb. 6th (Bob Marley's birthday). This innovative music project involves 47 different, high caliber artists who come together to create the genre of Rasta Rock. Heavily influence by legends Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley, the music has a message delivered with power, purpose and soul. It's so good, even the Jimi Hendrix Foundation endorsed it. Follow Rasta Rock Opera on Twitter. Stevie is also the innovative entrepreneur behind a Songfi, an application that he describes as a "Free Music Revolution" where artists are paid through sponsorships. Sounds exciting and we will all be on the ground floor when it goes public in Feb/March 2014!

We are joined by Bennett Boddington, who calls himself a "Bullied Brony" who has found solace and understanding in the Rasta Rock Opera's anti-bullying message in their song, "No More". We bring him on to discuss being a Brony (a boy or man who loves the cartoon My Little Pony) and how he likes to be called, Buddy Bestfriend. By the end of this episode, friends are made for sure. Tim even takes the Brony Personality Test and finds out he is Rainbow Dash! And we learned, Friendship really is Magic! Maybe you will see us all at the next BronyCon!
