23min of Ska : Tutti Frutti

23skaTUTTII hope this podcast finds you well. I hope this podcast finds you at all. It’s a busy time, and hard not to get all caught up in it.
Things seem hectic but brush that stress aside. Don’t get caught up trying to be perfect and experience things in a perfect way. That’s undue stress that you’re better off without. The pressure from now until the end of the year can get rough, so take some time out away from your crazy aunt and drunken uncle and listen to some ska. Relax, you deserve it!

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.

23min of Ska : Mr. Miracle

23skaMIRACLEIf you’re ever stuck in life, just go, escape, especially if you’re mentally trapped. Life is too damn short to feel boxed in anywhere! You’d be surprised how simple it is to leave things that suck behind once you commit to ridding yourself of them. The first step in the hardest, it feels like trying to escape a black hole, but you can do it, and it gets easier once you start. Now, you won’t always get off scot-free, there is always a bit of pain, but in the end you’ll be all the better for it.

23min of Ska : Envy

23skaENVYOk, I’ll admit, I tried my hardest to keep these episodes on theme for each of the seven deadly sins, but, man, Envy was way to hard. Maybe a few songs fit, but really not that much. I at least tried to use song titles that seem like they should be about envy, even when they’re not really in the end. There were some other good songs, but I’d already used them in previous episodes, I’m envious of those episodes for using those songs for no reason when they could’ve been saved for this podcast, if I had this idea earlier!
