Special : You Call It Vol. 3

23ska-beerAh, this week I did the lazy thing, and instead of picking out a bunch of songs and them editing them together, I had the members over at /r/ska on reddit help me pick out the songs for this episode. I think it turned out totally rad! Not too mainstream, pretty modern w/ some older stuff… almost as if I would do something like this myself… if it wasn’t for my “give credit where credit’s due” ways, I’d just pretend this greatness was all done by me on my own! It really is that good of an episode!

23min of Ska : It Could be Great

23ska roofSince I last left you I spent a week on vacation. Not just on vacation, but sick. Yes, I was sick on vacation. It sucked. I’m supposed to be relaxing, getting some sun and hanging out on the beaches or something. Instead I’m stuck inside. Boo! On the upside I got a bit more time to jam out to a bunch of forgotten and new songs on my ipod, which resulted in this exact episode. Good stuff that all should’ve been used in a episode before now. So enjoy this, I know that I did while I was coughing up a lung in a darkened hotel room.

23min of Ska : Make it Count

Listen folks, I don’t care what you believe, personally, when it comes to this podcast, I just want to get you dancing, or at least bobbin’ your head at your office/put a small hop in your step while out on a walk, but I want you to remember, that these years are all we get. Life is a one time deal and we need not to waste it. We need to spend it pursuing meaningful relationships, entertaining ourselves and spreading joy. Drop needless hate and enjoy every moment you can. I hope that this podcast has brought you some happiness over the last few years (and that it continues on for more), let me know it is always nice to hear from you listeners out there!
