Glitter like a swarm of fire-flies
tangled in a silver braid.”

23min of Ska : Envy

23skaENVYOk, I’ll admit, I tried my hardest to keep these episodes on theme for each of the seven deadly sins, but, man, Envy was way to hard. Maybe a few songs fit, but really not that much. I at least tried to use song titles that seem like they should be about envy, even when they’re not really in the end. There were some other good songs, but I’d already used them in previous episodes, I’m envious of those episodes for using those songs for no reason when they could’ve been saved for this podcast, if I had this idea earlier!

23min of Ska : Gluttony

23skaGLUTONYI ate a mini deep dish pizza for lunch. Later that night I had an ice cream sandwich. Somehow, I stayed with in my calorie count for the day, but man, did I feel like a fatty. Oh sure, I could go for a walk and do a dozen jumping jacks or something, but instead I just wanna eat a whole bag of cappuccino flavored potato chips instead while washing it down w/ some horchata beer. I guess I could dance to this podcast, that might help. But then, I’d just want to eat a dark chocolate and bacon candy bar. I’m kinda unhealthy…

23skaSLOTHCall off of work. Sleep in. Stay in your pajamas. Order out. Don’t flush. Leave the dishes for another day. Forget about opening the shades. Cleaning up is for the birds.

23min of Ska : Lust

23skaLUSTYBy now you see what I’m doing with the episode titles right? If so, awesome, thought you would’ve caught on last week. If you still don’t get it, try paying attention in bible class next Sunday. Also, it was the last of the easy loose themes to follow. So, uh, don’t expect the next four episodes to be as on point as this one is, and it really isn’t too on point either. What it is though is a bunch of great ska music! And yeah, at the end you can see that I’m in my ’90s ska rut again, so what, those songs rule!
