23min of Ska : You Gotta Bust it Up

23ska-redplaidYou can’t sit idle. You have to go out and make a difference in this world. Don’t apologize for the fact that the way to creation is always destruction. Get out there and tear down what doesn’t work and build it up with something better. At least add something positive to this mess. This is the world, and it is cold and harsh and violent, and sometimes you have to react in a like manner. Then again, I never said you had to be such a serious sour puss about it. This podcast is one of the small things I do on a weekly basis to try and make the world a tad easier to take for myself and anyone who cares to listen. Destroy then rebuild or just add, but don’t sit and watch the world pass you by.
