23min of Ska : I Won’t be a Wage Slave

23ska-yellowplaidDidn’t we all make crazy declarations in our youth? Not so much the very young, you know in the vein of “I’m gonna be an (/astronaut//cowboy//president/)” variety. More of the teenage “I’m to be an (/artist//actor//musician/)” kinda thing. Basically, anything to fulfill our inner creativity and get paid for it. Or maybe because, by all costs, we refused to work for “the man” in a “cubicle farm” and become a dreaded “corporate drone.” Maybe that was just me and all my arty friends… In the end most of us got jobs at (more or less) conventional companies, and it isn’t as bad as we though it would be. Maybe the fear of adult assimilation was what we really wanted to avoid, and once we got old enough we realized, hey it isn’t so bad. In the end I’d still rather be and astronaut/cartoonist though.
