Could there be too much ska out there? …nah!

23min of Ska : Tutti Frutti

23skaTUTTII hope this podcast finds you well. I hope this podcast finds you at all. It’s a busy time, and hard not to get all caught up in it.
Things seem hectic but brush that stress aside. Don’t get caught up trying to be perfect and experience things in a perfect way. That’s undue stress that you’re better off without. The pressure from now until the end of the year can get rough, so take some time out away from your crazy aunt and drunken uncle and listen to some ska. Relax, you deserve it!

23min of Ska : Sherbet

23skaSHERBETWhat is it with the human condition that makes us so sure of things even when they’re false. Why won’t we accept reality as it is and learn and even grow. No, we dig our heels in and refuse to hear truths. Sometimes we even double down on our misguided beliefs and accuse the truth tellers to be liars. There are even people out there who will come up with crazy cosmic ideas that boil down to “No! No! The rest of the world is wrong, I cannot make a mistake or misremember anything!” Sorry, but we all do it. We all make mistakes and hear and misremember things, it happens. It’s best to open your mind and listen a little bit, even do a little independent research if need to. No worries. Let’s all grow and learn together, and stop holding ourselves back.

23min of Ska : Ube

23skaUBELife is short. Don’t spend it making yourself miserable. Or by making other miserable. Do what you want, but harm none. You know. We only get one shot, are you going to give yours away? Or impede on others? What’s the point? Fulfilling your own greed only makes you think your happy for so long. Try kindness. Try making things for the world. When your time is up in this life, it will be remembered, and you will essentially live beyond your short time alive.
