23min of Ska : Cookies & Cream

23skaCANDC

Big ska show last weekend. Well, it was for me! I traveled all the way back to my home state of Illinois to see MU330, Coolidge, the Eclectics, a supergroup of ska musicians from the Exceptions, the Parka Kings, Ganger Fun and Rude King, Skapone and the Tango Wedding Band. I went with my little brother and it was like old times. Ska band after ska band bringing the tunes for hours! Besides hanging out with the few band members I knew, I also ran into my old friends Kip and Kate and also got to meet the boys behind the Windy City Sound System podcast! Too much fun, too much goodwill!

23min of Ska : Rocky Road

23skaROCKYROADNever be too afraid to pause your life, for just a bit. Things happen, out of your control, and you need to take a pit-stop. You can’t do this too often, or even make a habit out of it, for if you do, you’ll lose you motivation to press on. We should always be making forward progress, but a short break from it is never a bad thing. Keep dancing, keep exploring and keep being awesome.

23skaBUBBLEGUMLast time I had a goofy ass idea for an episode I went for it. I thought everyone was going to hate it. Everyone loved it. Shows how much I know. This episode… this episode I almost scrapped as I was uploading it. Why? I once again had a goofy idea and I think everyone will hate it. I don’t hate it. I like it. But I worry. Is this the episode that will lose all my street cred? Do I have any street cred?
