23min of Ska : Glazed

Words, words, words. Words arranged into a sentence. Words trying to convey an idea. Shallow statement of support. Trite catchphrase showing solidarity. Buzzword. Mention of genre. New slang to show you’re hip to the kids. Self-deprecating joke. Sincere message of thanks to listeners for their time. Another joke. Words expressing the hope that the listener likes this episode.

23ska8BALLFor the triumphant return to more modern ska, I went to my listeners and asked what they wanted. Got a few good suggestions, all which are in this podcast.

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.

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.
