23min of Ska : Maple Bar

Neighbors are pretty great, eh? I suggest you get to know yours if you don’t already. I’ve been fortunate enough to have always lived next to some pretty kind folks. From out in the country when there’s an acre of land between you both, to apartments where you can hear each other sneeze, I’ve been lucky to have mostly lived near people I could party with, have drinks with, or at the very least, exchange pleasantries with in the elevator. It’s a small world, so it’s best if we look out for each other, start with your family, extend to your neighbors, it’s always worth it.

23min of Ska : the 11yr Sunspot Theory

23skaSUN
Did you ever hear about the theory that when the sunspots on the Sun go nuts every 11 years that it has an effect on human culture? At one end of the cycle we, as a society are more manic, and at the other end we’re more mellow? And that at the zenith point of each there is an increase in creative activity that reflects the zeitgeist? It’s a fun theory, as far as theories go. Something to think about. Now enjoy a bunch of songs about the Sun.

23min of Ska : 18yrs Old Means You’re an Adult… Right?

23ska9BALLEveryone who’s 18 thinks they know what they’re talking about. I was no exception. Big talking idiot. Yeesh! I’m glad there’s not too many people that know the stories of my youth. Mostly being a loud mouthed idiot. Getting into minor trouble, and pissing off the people I should’ve been trying to impress, and trying to impress people who weren’t worth my time. We’ve all been there, right? And hell, if you’re still there, and still young, don’t take any advice from me to start cleaning up your act, because I know I sure wouldn’t’ve taken it. Go, be you. Me, I’ll sit here laughing at my younger self’s ways, while thanking him for at least helping shape the man I am today.

23min of Ska : the Bulleteer

23skaBULLETEERNot knowing your place in the world is a real bummer. It is even more compounded when you have no idea how you got where you were, or because it was the results of what others had planned for you. Accept your destiny, become the best there is at what you do. You owe it to the world not to hide away. While you may never make it to the big times, you made the world a better place by for everyone that you encountered, and that is a great victory indeed.
