23min of Ska : Lysithea, the 12th Moon of Jupiter

23ska-orangeplaid
Lysithea is a prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by Seth Barnes Nicholson in 1938 at Mount Wilson Observatory and is named after the mythological Lysithea, daughter of Oceanus and one of Zeus’ lovers.

Lysithea didn’t receive its present name until 1975; before then, it was simply known as Jupiter X. It was sometimes called “Demeter” from 1955 to 1975.

It belongs to the Himalia group, five moons orbiting between 11 and 13 Gm from Jupiter at an inclination of about 28.3°.

23min of Ska : Sloth

23skaSLOTHCall off of work. Sleep in. Stay in your pajamas. Order out. Don’t flush. Leave the dishes for another day. Forget about opening the shades. Cleaning up is for the birds. It is your life, be as lazy as you want to me. Being productive only brings future work and more mysteries ahead in life, who the hell wants that anyway?

23min of Ska Interview : Moon

This month I’m interviewing Seattle, Washington’s own Moon. I’m talking to Ben Dorey (Vocals/Sax), Luke Swart (Bass/Vocals) and Robin Ray (Guitar/Keys/Vocals). We talk about the beginnings of Moon, why they like playing second wave ska as well as what it is like to be a ska band based in Seattle. We also get to listen to the songs “Get Some Sleep” and “Rough Weather” from their new album “the Landing”.

You can find Moon at:

23min of Ska : We Survive

The great thing about ska is that it always survives. It has been what, 5 or 6 decades? That is pretty long lived. Nothing slows it down & it keeps us dancing. And us ska fans? We survive too, trends or not, it makes no difference, we just like ska. We survive, ska survives, long live ska! Yay!
