…and here we are, at the final episode of the seventh set of 23 episodes. So yeah, sevens, if you haven’t noticed, was kind of a theme for this batch. I got some good episodes out of it I think. I hope you agree and I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as you have the last 22… hell, the last 160!
Being and young and rebellious comes more naturally to some than it does to others. I personally became more rebellious as I got older, but longed to be more of a character like Klarion that goes against the wishes of his family and town to seek out what is beyond the society he grew up in. As serious as those ambitions are he isn’t afraid to be seen as weird as he laughs all the way to a new life. We can all make these sorts of changes in our lives, we just have to roll the dice…
I guess this episode is pretty self explanatory. Do I really need to post more? I’ve been collecting songs for this one since the first few months of 23min of Ska back in 2010. I hope it all hangs together well for you guys and you all enjoy it.
Here’s bunch of songs that I ripped from my seven inch record collection. The one thing I’ve always enjoyed is going to a concert and picking up a seven inch record from a band I just saw. I don’t know if it is because of the delayed time in between buying it and driving home before you can listen to it or if there really IS something special about how vinyl sounds. If you hear any pops or crackle… well, that’s kind of the point.
