23min of Ska : Brock Sampson

23skaSAMSONBrock: You have some dangerous machinery for sale here. I think you’re begging for trouble on this one.
Dr. Venture: I thought you handled all that. And I don’t hear any big ideas from you on how to get some quick cash. C’mon, most of this stuff is old crap my dad left behind.
Brock: (exasperated) DOC! You have a table over there with a sign that says “laser death ray bargain bin”!
Dr. Venture: (dismissively) Well, that’s why you have your little ska band there, to keep the oddballs in costumes from raising Cain.

23min of Ska : Twice as Many Colors

23skaKIRBYEvery year around this time the wife and I pack up a bunch of food and clothes and head down to San Diego for the big Comic Convention. We go down there, geek out about comics, movies, tv and hang out w/ a bunch of our friends from LA as if we didn’t all live near each other before this weekend. And every year, whether you notice it or not, the week of SDCC episode alwas has a slight comic geek nod in it. This year I may’ve went overboard, who knows. I hope you dig it, I know that I’ll be dancing to this one while I’m waiting in long ass lines!

23min of Ska : Power, the Energy and the Upbeat

23ska roofHere’s a fat bunch of ska, rocksteady and ska/punk to fill your ears with! A bunch of great songs! Kicked off with a lost-ish/obscure-ish tune from Goldfinger followed by a song that I’ve never been able to shake out of my head from the Forthrights that I was shocked to find I hadn’t previously played on the podcast. Then there’s an older song from the Amphetatmeanies while I wait for their latest album to finally come out! Speaking of new albums, I’ve included a song from the Georgetown Orbits’ new album that should be coming soon! Then we have the Screw-Ups, who are a great band, so check out their EP, every song on it is great! The Boss Beats were a local act out of L.A. that I got to see and I loved them, but they are no longer together, still the music lives on in my heart and on this podcast. We wrap up w/ a song that I’ve had for a while, but misplaced, so thanks to the A-OKS for being so patient, a great group of guys and providing a killer song to boot! I haven’t done a song breakdown like this in a while. I usually refrain from it, as I find it a little dry in some respects, but I understand that not everyone wants to read my take on the philosophies of life like I usually put up.

23min of Ska : Over Flowing

Ska music, ever over flowing with happiness and mirth. It is not music for wallowing in a bad mood. It is music for cheering up or just keeping your happy going. It is music for dancing, celebrating and generally having a good time. That’s what we have here, a bunch of songs about throwing parties, having a great night out and the joys of mysterious ladies. Seriously listeners when you’re out this weekend may your fun and drinks be over flowing as well.
