23min of Ska : Lysithea, the 12th Moon of Jupiter

23ska-orangeplaid
Lysithea is a prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by Seth Barnes Nicholson in 1938 at Mount Wilson Observatory and is named after the mythological Lysithea, daughter of Oceanus and one of Zeus’ lovers.

Lysithea didn’t receive its present name until 1975; before then, it was simply known as Jupiter X. It was sometimes called “Demeter” from 1955 to 1975.

It belongs to the Himalia group, five moons orbiting between 11 and 13 Gm from Jupiter at an inclination of about 28.3°.

23min of Ska : 16 Candles

23ska16Candles

This week seemed like the perfect week to dedicate an episode to one of the greatest movies from the ’80s, that’s right “Sixteen Candles!” What other movie would apropos to reference this week? There’s not a single one that I can come up with. I hope you enjoy it, it’s another one that was going one way and then at the last minute there was a sudden shift that made more sense song wise, but took me back the drawing board!

23min of Ska : Stop…

23skaSTOPStop hate. Stop racism. Stop sexism. Stop. Just stop. Sometimes we all need just a full stop. We stop to rethink and reassess ideas that we may’ve become entrenched in. Ideas and ruts that just may not even apply to what you believe in anymore. Stop. Breath. Think. Go!

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 : I Won’t be a Wage Slave

23ska-yellowplaidDidn’t we all make crazy declarations in our youth? Not so much the very young, you know in the vein of “I’m gonna be an (/astronaut//cowboy//president/)” variety. More of the teenage “I’m to be an (/artist//actor//musician/)” kinda thing. Basically, anything to fulfill our inner creativity and get paid for it. Or maybe because, by all costs, we refused to work for “the man” in a “cubicle farm” and become a dreaded “corporate drone.” Maybe that was just me and all my arty friends… In the end most of us got jobs at (more or less) conventional companies, and it isn’t as bad as we though it would be. Maybe the fear of adult assimilation was what we really wanted to avoid, and once we got old enough we realized, hey it isn’t so bad. In the end I’d still rather be and astronaut/cartoonist though.
