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 : How Dare You Sir or Ma’am!

23ska-bwplaidOver the Summer when I was posting episodes of this podcast, for several episodes in a row I kept getting comments that were, frankly, kinda mean. I like doing this podcast, because I like ska music, traditional as well as stuff like ska/punk. These rude comments were pretty much always on the more ska/punk episodes. Now, said person has stopped coming around to cause some trouble, but as I put this episode together, I just couldn’t help but smile, knowing how much they would hate it. Sometimes I’m a bitch too.

23min of Ska : Up into the Great Night

23ska-orangeplaidIt is all about having great nights lately! Last weekend I drove about a hour to go see a great band play (the Shifters in case you were wondering) and it was a blast to finally meet them in person and see them play. Just the other night I went out with my wife for our 2nd anniversary and (as expected) it was great as well. All day long we all slave away at our day job just waiting to get to the night, which offers freedom and fun if we aren’t too wiped out to take advantage of them. I implore you to fight that tired and weary state and get out there and enjoy some epic nights!
