23min of Ska : Sloth

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. It is your life, be as lazy as you want to me. Being productive only brings future work and more mysteries ahead in life, who the hell wants that anyway?

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!

23min of Ska : Wrath

23skaWRAITHWhen I started out putting this episode together I didn’t intend to start it off w/ some mid ’90s ska, it just worked out that way. Don’t be mad about it, sometimes I go looking for great modern ska, but sometimes I get reminded of a bunch of great music from when I was younger. So yeah, I dipped back into it, and pulled these awesome tracks to share w/ you. The rest of these songs will join those mid ’90s tracks in the fact that they’ve really gotten stuck in my mind since I’ve heard them. In fact, I had to triple check that I hadn’t used any of them before. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them all as much as I have.
