23min of Ska : the Long Good-Bye

“Try the girl” they mocked, but Foggy wasn’t having it, besides, she knew that blackmailers don’t shoot. She was looking for the finger-man that framed her. Sure, her necklace had broken at the crime scene, pearls are a nuisance, but she wasn’t the killer in the rain. The blackmailers caught up to her when she was on her way to a pick up on Noon street, and they threatened to turn her into the cops for messing in their business. She scoffed. She sized up her would-be captors, smirked and told them “Trouble is my business” and dashed off, knowing she had about 23 minutes to clear her name.

23min of Ska Cross Over : This I Know with Josh and Joe

When I started off this nutty run of crossover episodes, I started w/ Josh from This I Know with Josh and Joe, so now it’s Joe’s turn to help me finish it off. I’ve known Joe since he was a baby. He’s my cousin and I love him. I was going to make fun of him and put up super goofy picture of him, but I took the high road! Once you’re done w/ this go listen to the hilariously fun podcast he and Josh do!

23min of Ska : Up into the Great Night

23ska-orangeplaidIt is all about having great nights lately! Last weekend I drove about a hour to go see a great band play (the Shifters in case you were wondering) and it was a blast to finally meet them in person and see them play. Just the other night I went out with my wife for our 2nd anniversary and (as expected) it was great as well. All day long we all slave away at our day job just waiting to get to the night, which offers freedom and fun if we aren’t too wiped out to take advantage of them. I implore you to fight that tired and weary state and get out there and enjoy some epic nights!
