23min of Ska : Fits

23skaSEAGUYSometimes we all need a fresh start in life, if you do, take it! As long as you getting out there and getting a new outlook, try to be slow to anger and avoid the snark of life. Renew. Refresh. Get ready to kick some ass! This world is yours for the living, so live it up! Keep going strong, and when you need a break take one. When you need a new start, head out in that direction with purpose! No half assing allowed from now on! Be in it to win it! What do you win? A life well lived, because trophies are bull shit. The only reward you get is peace of mind and a smile on your face, isn’t that enough?

23min of Ska : Klarion the Witch Boy

23skaKLARIONBeing and young and rebellious comes more naturally to some than it does to others. I personally became more rebellious as I got older, but longed to be more of a character like Klarion that goes against the wishes of his family and town to seek out what is beyond the society he grew up in. As serious as those ambitions are he isn’t afraid to be seen as weird as he laughs all the way to a new life. We can all make these sorts of changes in our lives, we just have to roll the dice…

23min of Ska : Keep All Your Secrets Undercover

23skaSOAPWhen building yourself up, don’t forget to keep part of yourself to yourself. Your ego is only scaffolding that eventually needs to be removed so you can shine, but you can’t give everything away. We all need our secrets. We need that little part of us to keep inside our heads that makes us, well, ourselves. Remember that, remember your core, what defines you, it isn’t anything that external, and it is hard to explain, but don’t lose it. That being said… here’s a bunch of cover songs for you! Yay! And yeah, two Operation Ivy covers, so what, they’re both good, deal with it.

the Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Rudie Can’t Fail (Burning London : the Clash Tribute ’99)
the Pepper Pots – Be My Baby (Shake It! ’07)
the Pinstripes – Holiday (the Holiday Sessions Vol. 3 ’11)
Sammy K And the East Los Three – Bankshot (Dale la Bota ’13)
the Holophonics – Making People Normal (MaSKArades Vol. 3 ’13)
the Amphetameanies – This Boy (Now! That’s What I Call the Amphetameanies ’06)
Save Ferris – Artificial Life (Orange County’s Punk Vs. Ska: Round One ’97)
the Frits – Concrete Jungle (Spare Shells : a Tribute to the Specials ’00)

23min of Ska : Sun Set Ska

At the end of the day yesterday I was standing in line waiting for my car, that’s right, at 11:59 PM I was saying “Where the hell is my crappy car?” jokingly to a small crowd of ska fans. How did I know they were ska fans? Well, I’d just spend the last few hours dancing, drinking and singing along w/ this group of like minded individuals at the Summer of Ska tour. I can honestly say it was a great time! I haven’t been to a ska show on that level in a long time, and it didn’t disappoint! Thanks, Suburban Legends, Big D & the Kids Table and Reel Big Fish for putting on a hell of a show in Hollywood last night! This episode is dedicated to all the crazy awesome ska fans I met there last night! Like Matt, Ro, Edwardo, the kid who looked like Percy Jackson & his two friends and a big kudos to Brian Klemm, who remains the nicest guy in the world.
