23min of Ska : Dark Pretzel

23skaCOASTER3Ok, sure, a Dark Pretzel ride isn’t technically a roller coaster. It’s something else. It’s in the family for sure. Kinda like this episode.  All these songs are for sure in the ska family, but they mess around with the style, push and pull away from the beat, but there’s a touch of ska in each. I hate to brag, but I really like this episode… a whole lot. I hope you do too!

23min of Ska : Alicia Huberman

23spyHubermanAfter I put this episode together, and much too late, I realized that I missed my chance to look for and include a song by the name “Notorious.” I guess part of the problem was that none came to mind.

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.
