23min of Ska : Order Tends Toward Chaos, Entropy Triumphs

23skaSPACEAt one time this was to be the final regular episode of 23min of Ska. After this episode was posted the angels were going to come down from heaven, sing a glorious blue beat tune that was to be next week’s end cap to the entire podcast. Sorry, you don’t get angels. You get this episode, which is not a game changer. It is a normal, everyday, awesome-sauce fun time, get down, 23min of Ska episode that doesn’t herald the end of this podcast. In fact it shall go on for quite a bit longer. This is the end of another set of 23 episodes, so it has that going for it, which is nice. Thanks for sticking with me, get ready to stick w/ me some more, to the point where you get sick of me, but not ska. No never stop loving ska, keep listening to that, even if you kick me to the curb!

23min of Ska : Communism for Fun and Profit

23skaSOAPI hope all my fine listeners out there have been having a great week! I really do! It’s true, you’re all pretty great! Now, I’m not sure how much of you actually read these descriptions that I write, and I don’t blame you. Rarely do I impart some great blue beat wisdom, some ska secrets or the occasional rocksteady conspiracy, but it is a small outlet to contact all of you who take the time to read it. It’s like that liquid soap you buy at the hippie grocery mart that has writing all over the bottle that you never quite find yourself reading. You didn’t buy the soap or download this podcast for the reading, but isn’t it nice that it is still there anyway?

Cartoon Violence – Vauxhall Nova (What Ever Happened to the Likely Lad? ’09)
Bumpin Uglies – Morning After (Ninjah: Reggae Assasins ’13)
2000 Tons of TNT – Tiger Uppercut (Reggae Mysteria ’12)

23min of Ska : Hello, My Name Is

23ska-diceThis one is for everyone that tells me that they can’t remember the songs that are played from week to week. The complaint is that they’re not sure what band is what. So I made it easy for all them. Each band is singing a song named after the band. If you have any questions, it is right there, wait for the chorus to come around again! Easy, huh?

23min of Ska : Something is Missing

Bucking the trends and going against the grain. Doing what you want, without a worry about shame. I don’t care what people say and how they define ska music, I know what I know. There’s nothing missing in any of these great songs, even if some would have you believe that there is. If you guess what is missing easily, then you’ve been paying attention. If you never figure it out because it is all such awesome music, then you’re awesome too. If you are at pains to figure it out after repeating this episode time and time again, don’t worry so much, it was never a contest anyway.

Operation Ivy – Artificial Life (Energy ’89)
