Ever get a stupid idea in your head? The kind of idea that sends you down a path, that even though you know it’s stupid and kind of silly, you just can’t shake it? So you follow this idea, all the while knowing it’s the kind of thing only you’d find funny? But you throw a lot of work and research into it anyway? The kind of idea that makes you stay up late and go to work tired as hell the next day, and risk losing your job? You know those ideas? Well, I’m telling you, in the end, they’re always worth it!

Well… I tried my damnedest to stick to the topic at hand, but it got a little too depressing. Also, this one got pretty reggae-y, which is usually not my style, but everything fit so well! I guess a few more songs about unity could’ve been in order, but I’ve played so many of them before. I feel bad that I’d also already used the Smoke Like a Fish song “God Loves, Man Kills” on an episode last Summer! Also of note, the final song on here is by the Uninvited, they’re not a ska band at all, but have played a few ska tracks here and there, this track is obviously one of them.
I want to go to the park. Go to the park and put on some good music and dance. Dance my ass off. It would be great. Ska music, sunshine and nature. Happiness would abound. But for many it is too cold for all that, so put on this episode and think of those times, let it be a reminder of what is in the coming months. The sun and warmth is coming, but the ska beat will ever be at your side to guide you towards it.
