23min of Ska : Brews, Fights, Friends and More Brews

23ska-beerIt has been a rough week. Working overtime, filing taxes, trying to get back into the exercise habit. That’s just my current burdens, e know we all have our own that we have to carry from week to week until we can shrug them off. The thing is, is that we have to keep looking forward to a brighter future. It’ll happen, for some of us it is as close as the next weekend, drink or concert, but it is coming! So don’t let what life has thrown at you get you too down, as it’ll right itself soon, so that you may grin from ear to ear once more.

23min of Ska : And the Horsemen Shall Ride

23skaPumpkinThe night is getting longer, as well as getting colder out. This is the turning point, there’s just a few more weeks of outdoor time before you only leave you living space for transport to work, food or music. No more frolicking in nature for most of you, and if there is, not for very long. This is the time to grab a warm cider, step outside and enjoy it while you can, much like everything else, it is fleeting, so grab it now!

Look at that lovely logo! That Ska-O-Lantern carved by Geoff Henkle! It was part of the annual Ska-O-Lantern contest put on by my buddy Miles! Geoff wins this Honorable Mention for now, good luck in the finals Geoff!

23min of Ska : Hats Off to Haters

23ska-blueplaidApparently I’ve been going about this all wrong. Ska/Punk music is the devil! I shall cast that evil off of this episode! Get back to the roots! Be a proper ska podcaster! But lo, still I fail. Why? Because I dare to support the modern ska bands that are still out there playing. Is this a problem? To some it seems to be. It won’t stop me and the hate won’t stop them. Join us, as we turn our backs on those who don’t agree. Hell, we have more fun than they do anyway. Rock on my brothers and sisters in ska, rock the eff on.

23min of Ska : Hello to New Life

23ska-blueplaidHere we go! Another week of great ska music! Old & new, from near and far, by friends and strangers, it’s all good stuff. This is the 111th episode of 23min of Ska all together, sure, I count the specials, bonuses, guest episodes and interviews differently, but that’s still 111 23 minute chunks of ska out in the world! Technically this is episode 73 of the regular standard 23min of Ska show, and that still BLOWS MY MIND! A little idea back in December of 2009 that started on Jan 23rd of 2010 has grown a lot! Thanks for sticking around, seriously! Enjoy the music!
