23min of Ska : the Halloween Issue!

23skaHALLOWEENAs a matter of principle and as a matter of keeping this show as evergreen as possible from week to week, I actually try had to not make shows that are themed around holidays or other events. And if I do, I try had to make it not so obvious. And then we have this… so yeah… look at those titles and you’re all like “Yup! Halloween episode alright!” but is it really? Could I have dropped this episode at any time and would it make you think “Halloween-ish?” I guess that is up for debate. I’d say entirely possible, but I’ve been wrong, oh so many times before! At the very least, I hope you truly enjoy this episode, as I hope you enjoy every episode!

23min of Ska : the Bulleteer

23skaBULLETEERNot knowing your place in the world is a real bummer. It is even more compounded when you have no idea how you got where you were, or because it was the results of what others had planned for you. Accept your destiny, become the best there is at what you do. You owe it to the world not to hide away. While you may never make it to the big times, you made the world a better place by for everyone that you encountered, and that is a great victory indeed.
