23min of Ska : Regenesis

23skaREGENESISYa can’t keep a good podcast down! 23min of Ska hitting back at you after another long week. Get prepped for that weekend, it’s gonna be fun and relaxing one. At least I hope so for your sake. We all need a respite after these last few weeks, right? Now, I’m never one to warn people away from the show, but if you’re not a ska/punk fan, eeeeee, this might not be the episode for you. Certainly there’s some straight up ska in here, but there’s some ska/punk that’s rather heavy on the punk, and just heavy in general. That’s a fair warning: this podcast plays both kinds of music, ska & ska/punk. Deal with it.

23min of Ska : Two Down…

23skaTWOCITIESDo you think I would even think of ending this podcast with out giving you all one last huge ska/punk episode? If ska/punk isn’t yr thing, I understand, I get it, but I love it just as much as I dig the more traditional sound. Ok, yeah, I’m still trying to figure out what the countdown means, I decided not to kill 23min of Ska a few weeks ago, but this has still got to lead someplace, and I don’t know what to do after this. There’s always been some kind of method to my madness, as random as it seems, that keeps be going, past the joy that listening to ska music brings me. I just need to find that next hook, that warp zone to the next level, and I’ll be set. I’m sure I’ll get there, I’m sure we all will. Life isn’t worth living if you not striving for next.

23min of Ska : Hey, High Fives All Around!

23ska roofFive! The countdown is real… in case you haven’t noticed for the last eighteen episodes the titles have been counting down… but to what? Truth be told, it might be counting down to the end. The end of the podcast proper? When I started the countdown, yes, this is exactly what it was leading to. But I’m having second thoughts. Months ago when this countdown started it was when I was getting hardly any downloads, listens, shares, likes, what-have-you and zero feedback. It was depressing. Ska isn’t supposed to depress people. Then the month of January hit… and it has been crazy! Huge download numbers, a number of new listeners and several supportive comments… I’m kind of shocked. It makes me want to keep going. So what are we counting down to? Listeners, tell me what you want from this podcast, we’ll go from there! This show is nothing with out you and the bands, I’m just a middle man, hit me up, let me know! Maybe we’re just counting down to an even better version of 23min of Ska!

23min of Ska : Just Kidding, Mess it All Up!

23skaSOAPWhat does the future hold for us? We can plan and plan for it, but we have no idea what will actually happen in the end for any of us. Seriously, tomorrow is a hard mistress, and we have to be fluid to get through it unscathed. And even if you made it, don’t get too comfortable, cuz there’s always another tomorrow coming. Be prepared, be smart, but mostly, have fun, because we don’t know how many more tomorrows there will be for any of us to put up with.

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 : 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.
