23min of Ska : Lemon Curd

23skaLEMONCURDUnlike last week, I’m keeping it pretty traditional as far as the sound goes. I mean, there’s still some room for other genres to worm into the ska beat, but it certainly isn’t punk or rock this time. It’s a laid-back kind of sound this week. I hope you all enjoy. Oh, and take care of each other out there, it’s been a rough one this week.

23min of Ska : the Level of Your Consciousness

23ska8BALLThere is so much going on day to day to be conscious of everything that is going on. There is so much more awareness that each of us need just to get by, or at least get by being fully informed that is. This is something we can all strive for, and achieve, but we always must be aware of the pitfalls of thinking we’ve got how the world works all figured out. We don’t, we never will, we need to find our place in it and remember why we are where we are at, and if that needs to change, we change it. We can do this, make the planet better, but we always need to be meta-conscious of ourselves.

Oh, and hey, this first track is by the very excellent the Duppies and they’re trying to raise some cash for their new album. This is the title track, if you dig it, there’s more of it to come! Toss down for some great music: http://kck.st/1NfUHaM

23min of Ska : When You Ought to be Changin’

23skaAPPLEChange is inevitable. Order succumbs to entropy. Learn to flow with chaos. When I was young I didn’t know this yet. I built a house called “me” and had my limitations set by parental, social and religious authority. I grew up with out questioning much. But I also grew up sad, I was growing up a schemer, I was getting sick of myself and I was taking it out on others. I had internalized the limitations that were only meant as a safety rope and was now rebelling against authority in general because I let them define me. In the end I got better. I don’t know if I grew up in the traditional sense, as I basically build a new suit for my personality, a new house named “me” and designed it with no limitations. It took awhile, but I got there, then I started setting up who I was and picking, as more of an adult, who I would be. It was liberating, but scary as all hell. Anyone who knew me in the early ’00 and still talks to me are the greatest folks in the universe! I was a mess, going several directions at once and talking a mile a minute doing so. Allowing myself to think thoughts and experiencing things that I had previously deemed “not for me” because it “isn’t who I am” was the best thing I ever did. Best part is, I’m not done yet, there’s no end goal, this is life, don’t imprison your self! It is ever changing, go with it, you’ll reap rewards and be happier! In the end, I know who I am, I’m Rad Jose AKA Bryan J, and I make podcasts, please enjoy.
