23min of Ska : Starving the Bears

23skaTRUCKERstarvingthebearsSo in “Trucker Slang / CB Slang” the term “Starving the Bears” means to go the speed limit so that the cops won’t pull you over and give you a ticket. And slowing down a bit seems like not too terrible of an idea right now. We’re all in a rush to get back out into the world, but maybe we should take a minute to pause and see if that’s the best idea. All but one of these tracks has been released since we’ve been in quarantine, hell, some were written and recorded directly because of it! I can’t wait for this lockdown to end, but I don’t mind waiting a bit longer if it means not feeding the bear.
