Holy heck, it’s a brand new episode! From a brand new computer! Speaking of brand new, check out these first two tracks! The Indecision delivers a brand new song from their upcoming album in April, followed by a brand new cover from Half Past Two from their upcoming music video this weekend! The newness doesn’t stop there, we also have super fresh tracks from Be Like Max, the Operators and Black Square! All supported by some great songs from 2 1/2 White Guys, Thorpedians and Steady Earnest! Oh man, I’m so glad to be getting an episode together and getting it out to you fine listeners! Thanks for sticking with me and the show.

This sure is a fun batch of songs! The first several songs are pretty straight forward in how they relate to the over all comic’s story. Right? Well, I think so! The last two… maybe not so much. “Walking Away” is referring Prof. X being able to walk, if even a short time (Don’t worry Charles, this will be happening so often it’s like you’re barely even in a wheelchair.) And “No Moaning at the Bar” was inspired by Beast and Angel fixing up Harry’s Hideaway at the end of the story line. Got it? Ok! Now listen and read comics!
It’s been a long few weeks listeners, but now is the time to relax, let your guard down and dance. I’ve found that you can’t enjoy life if you’re constantly on guard, waiting for something to go wrong. Things go wrong, you can’t stop that! So just be happy when things are going right and forget all that negative energy!
This is the most colorful episode of the podcast that I’ve ever done! Enough with the puns, on w/ the great music! I hope you all like ska and ska/punk, cuz that’s all your getting. Sorry this write up is short, but I’m on my way to Texas for a wedding, fun time!
What does the future hold for us? We can plan and plan for it, but we have no idea what will actually happen in the end for any of us. Seriously, tomorrow is a hard mistress, and we have to be fluid to get through it unscathed. And even if you made it, don’t get too comfortable, cuz there’s always another tomorrow coming. Be prepared, be smart, but mostly, have fun, because we don’t know how many more tomorrows there will be for any of us to put up with.
Didn’t we all make crazy declarations in our youth? Not so much the very young, you know in the vein of “I’m gonna be an (/astronaut//cowboy//president/)” variety. More of the teenage “I’m to be an (/artist//actor//musician/)” kinda thing. Basically, anything to fulfill our inner creativity and get paid for it. Or maybe because, by all costs, we refused to work for “the man” in a “cubicle farm” and become a dreaded “corporate drone.” Maybe that was just me and all my arty friends… In the end most of us got jobs at (more or less) conventional companies, and it isn’t as bad as we though it would be. Maybe the fear of adult assimilation was what we really wanted to avoid, and once we got old enough we realized, hey it isn’t so bad. In the end I’d still rather be and astronaut/cartoonist though.
