23min of Ska : Three Hard Winters

23skaNORSEThis episode is for my friends, and by that I mean, you guys, my listeners. Also, the bands in this podcast contain some people that range from good acquaintances to long distance friends (except for doctormanette, I don’t even know anyone in that band). So this, is possibly, the one of the friendliest episodes of the show that I have ever put out! Listen with your friends! Also, re: the title “Three Hard Winters,” it’s a reference to Fimbulvetr, the three harsh Winters (without a Summer) in Norse mythology that is the prelude to Ragnarök.

23min of Ska : the 7 Chakras

23skaCHAKRAWhat do I know about chakras? Not too much, I’m really hoping a whitey like me isn’t offending any Indians whose religious practice includes the chakras. Come to think of it, I didn’t worry about offending Christians when I did theme episodes on the Deadly Sins… well, retroactively, I hope I didn’t upset any Christians. At most the chakras were a spring board to present 7 songs or artists that in some way relate to what each chakra represents. It isn’t perfect, but it was fun to try and figure out, and hell, all of this music is worth hearing anyway, so stop reading and get listening!

23min of Ska : Post Christmas Coma & Depression

23ska-xmasTwo things are on tap for today, either you still have the day off to lounge around and treat your hangover & overstuffed tummy right, or you’re back in the office. I’m one of the latter, so right now I’m basically staving off being resentful of capitalism. This episode will get me through it. Come on, a new song from Johnny Socko, a great brand new song from the Dendrites and a song that will be out in a few weeks from Be Like Max! To top it off there’s even Sammy Kay reminding us to keep a Positive Mental Attitude, so I guess things COULD be worse and I need to lighten up. Sometimes I need the music to remind me not to be such a stick in the mud.

MU330 – X-Mas Card (Crab Rangoon ’97)

23min of Ska : Keep All Your Secrets Undercover

23skaSOAPWhen building yourself up, don’t forget to keep part of yourself to yourself. Your ego is only scaffolding that eventually needs to be removed so you can shine, but you can’t give everything away. We all need our secrets. We need that little part of us to keep inside our heads that makes us, well, ourselves. Remember that, remember your core, what defines you, it isn’t anything that external, and it is hard to explain, but don’t lose it. That being said… here’s a bunch of cover songs for you! Yay! And yeah, two Operation Ivy covers, so what, they’re both good, deal with it.
