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 : Mint Chocolate Chip

23skaMINTCHIPAh, back to normal, playing whatever the heck I want as long as it’s ska. I’m not concerned with keeping it traditional or ska/punk, I just care that it has that snappy ska beat to make you pick up your feet. And when your feet are sore, if you need to keep dancing, press on. If we all called it a day once things got difficult I wouldn’t have gotten this episode out tonight. I’m sleepy and my wrists are burning as I write this. But man, I love this collection of songs, I love that I stuck it out! Hell, I love all the songs that I tried to stick in this episode that didn’t work. I’ll get them into your ears soon, promise.

23min of Ska : Rocky Road

23skaROCKYROADNever be too afraid to pause your life, for just a bit. Things happen, out of your control, and you need to take a pit-stop. You can’t do this too often, or even make a habit out of it, for if you do, you’ll lose you motivation to press on. We should always be making forward progress, but a short break from it is never a bad thing. Keep dancing, keep exploring and keep being awesome.
