23min of Ska : Sherbet

23skaSHERBETWhat is it with the human condition that makes us so sure of things even when they’re false. Why won’t we accept reality as it is and learn and even grow. No, we dig our heels in and refuse to hear truths. Sometimes we even double down on our misguided beliefs and accuse the truth tellers to be liars. There are even people out there who will come up with crazy cosmic ideas that boil down to “No! No! The rest of the world is wrong, I cannot make a mistake or misremember anything!” Sorry, but we all do it. We all make mistakes and hear and misremember things, it happens. It’s best to open your mind and listen a little bit, even do a little independent research if need to. No worries. Let’s all grow and learn together, and stop holding ourselves back.

23min of Ska : the Lady in the Lake

23skaaxeHey everyone one! What’s up? I’ve just finished the first of a three-night Slackers concert. I’m tired as heck, but man, still so excited for tonight and tomorrow! This is a laid back episode highlighting not only the Slackers, but the other bands that will be playing (or most likely will be in attendance at least) with them for their stand up at the Troubadour. Not sure how I’m supposed to make it through work on Friday, and my wife already has plans to let me sleep in in Saturday, because she knows that 3 days of work and ska is going to wipe me the heck out. Sorry, I don’t usually like to brag, but I’m super excited about these shows!

23skaGUNGIRLFor the past several years, around this time of year, I try to make an episode that I think my wife, who’s not really a ska fan, will dig. I’m not saying this is the episode to introduce a non-ska fan to ska with, unless you’re talking about my wife. I’m really surprised I never played “Set Sail” on any of these episodes (or any episode at all) before! But yeah, this is for you Allison, thanks for 5 fantastic years!
