23min of Ska : Everything for Nothing and Even Less

23ska-redplaidThere are things that can happen that can ruin your whole day, which can ruin your whole week, that in turn can keep growing and eating up more and more of your time. We have to fight that as much as possible, eschew the negative when we can, and be smart enough to ask for help to bring the positivity into our lives when we can’t handle it on our own.

23min of Ska : Five by Five, Mother Bitches

23ska-bwplaidI won’t lie, this episode was a bear to put together. A lot of the original song choices weren’t working together, the episode came out too short, switched out some songs, rearranged a few songs, the episode came out too long, switched a few more songs and BANG! the episode is done. In the years I’ve been doing this, this episode is the first one to give me a bit of podcaster/mixer block, I guess you would call it, it has sucked up far more of my evening free time than any other episode. The good thing is that all those songs that got kicked out have started to form the next couple episodes, so hopefully they’ll flow together easier and my episode description won’t seem so cranky because I won’t be so sleepy! I still say it is a fine fine episode of the show, but birthing this baby took far too much time!

Sunny Side Up – Corporate Control (Paradise in the Sky ’13)
Stop the Presses – Daddy Issues Vol. II (eSKAndalo! ’13)
doctormanette – the One & Lonely (the Same Thing Over & Over ’99)
