Here it is! Another great twenty three minutes of ska music! Thank the gods of music that such sounds have reached your ears! We’re a week into 2015 and things are off to a decent start for all of you I hope! Seriously, listeners, life is only what we make of it. In our darkest times, if we don’t keep the light inside of us, we will also grow dark. It is easy to be positive when everything is going well, but it is much more rewarding when you can remain positive in the most negative of situations. I think it is called “developing character” or something like that, but it seems like such a meaningless phrase. All I’m saying that is when it is hardest to remain positive that that is the time when you need to make yourself positive.
