23min of Ska : Vesper Lynd

23skaLYND

Alright Bond fans, I bet you’re all looking at that image for this episode and saying “Why are you calling this episode “Vesper Lynd?” That’s clearly a photo of Honey Rider!” And I’ll say “You’re not wrong… but in reality is a photo of Ursula Andress, who yes, played Honey in “Dr. No” but this is from when played Vesper in the original “Casino Royale,” so there!” Then we can debate if that should be counted as a true Bond movie or not. At any rate, here’s a bunch of fantastic ska music, so listen to that instead of debating me about spy movies, okay? You know these bands all rule, right? So get ta listenin’! Looks like I won this imaginary argument with the power of music. Rad.

23min of Ska : Tutti Frutti

23skaTUTTII hope this podcast finds you well. I hope this podcast finds you at all. It’s a busy time, and hard not to get all caught up in it.
Things seem hectic but brush that stress aside. Don’t get caught up trying to be perfect and experience things in a perfect way. That’s undue stress that you’re better off without. The pressure from now until the end of the year can get rough, so take some time out away from your crazy aunt and drunken uncle and listen to some ska. Relax, you deserve it!
