While I was out for my morning run thru teh Inertnets I did stumble upon this fascinating Reddit entry entitled Since it seems to be ska week, here is the history of ska music with well over 50 YouTube links. It’s a nice overview of the history of ska through the various waves and incarnations. Needless to say I sniffed every song on it, from The Skatalites to The Uptones to Op Ivy  and beyond, and now I’m a bit exhausted from all the skanking and running. Imagine my shock when I pawed in “Ska” in a Reddit search and came up with a bazillion skankalicious entries. A ska doggie must be fit and ready to skank at all times. Here’s an actual photograph of me, this very morning.
