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!

23min of Ska : 2 L8 4 H8

23ska-bwplaidAs much as I love when listeners reach out to me (and I love the hell out if it and brag to any that will hear me) when I get some kind of hateful reaction to 23min or Ska it drives me bonkers. It really gets under my skin. Also, the less knowledgeable the reaction the more it is going to eat at me. Last week I was proving to the hater in question that he was wrong about this show (and a lot of other things in general) and was taking the high road in terms of programing. But the week ate away at me, this is the reactionary, snot nosed, fuck off episode I wanted to make. It is my show, I do what I want and this is me eating my cake. Thanks for listening, if you love it, I love you, let’s get drinks and dance to some records. If you hate it, keep your trap shut and stop listening to it, that’s as far as I’m willing to compromise. I support ska of all stripes and eras and won’t let you make me feel like a shithead dumbass because of that love.

7 Seconds of Love – Love Me Like You Used to (Danger is Dangerous ’08)
Sunny Side Up – Good Life (Paradise in the Sky ’13)

23min of Ska : It Could be Great

23ska roofSince I last left you I spent a week on vacation. Not just on vacation, but sick. Yes, I was sick on vacation. It sucked. I’m supposed to be relaxing, getting some sun and hanging out on the beaches or something. Instead I’m stuck inside. Boo! On the upside I got a bit more time to jam out to a bunch of forgotten and new songs on my ipod, which resulted in this exact episode. Good stuff that all should’ve been used in a episode before now. So enjoy this, I know that I did while I was coughing up a lung in a darkened hotel room.
