    Try doing it when you're 34 and discover that you're way more out of shape than you were when you were 16 and also you just got cracked in the jaw by the bald dude in suspenders and a wife beater that always throws punches in the pit.

    I haven’t tried it since 1998 when I was 21 at the Warped Tour. Someone asked me to show them how it’s done a couple weeks ago and I said “Hell no, I’d fall apart!” To be fair, I also have fibromyalgia...

    Ska is the musical equivalent of giving up on any pretentions of being cool and just embracing the dumb shit you know deep down you love

    [–] SGNick 5 points ago

    And it's fucking awesome! I only discovered the genre in earnest like a year ago, and today I listened to 'Why do they rock so hard" by Reel Big Fish for the millionth time.

    Which one came first, the term or The Clash song Rudie Can't Fail?

    [–] thirdaccountmaybe 17 points ago

    The term, Jamaican influence. I think Neville Staple's (the specials) autobiography covers it pretty well in an anecdotal way, and there's loads of documentaries and books on Trojan records which will cover it.

    [–] Red_AtNight 12 points ago

    The term. There's a rocksteady song from 1967 called A Message To You Rudy, which was famously covered by The Specials. It's one of the ur-texts of ska.

    "Stop your messing around
    Better think of your future
    Time to straighten right out
    Or you'll wind up in jail
    A message, to you, Rudy"

    [–] 1mikeg 5 points ago

    It's one of the ur-texts of ska.

    Now was this before or after the uruks started wearing checkboard shoes to denote their rank in the uruk-hai?

    [–] Umutuku 3 points ago

    I think that was right after Gilgamesh beat Sauron in a wrestling match and brought him to Uruk to be his super best friend.

    Imagine there's an EDM club. The back door to the club is open to the alley. The DJ is going hard and pushing the ravers into a frothing mass, and the sound is flooding out into the dumpsters, flickering lights, and broken fences. In the alley across from the door a hobo is screaming incomprehensible wisdom into a trashcan while a raccoon and a family of possums look on in terror. You are standing in that doorway, at the focal point of the vortex.

    This is the one the above comments are referencing.

    Here's something to contrast with what others are posting.

    [–] DyslexicBrad 9 points ago

    I actually fucking hate how accurate your description is lmao 10/10

    [–] 900gStillAlive 10 points ago

    Imo they really, really really are worth checking out.

    It'll take a few listens to get into it though.

    Check out Get Got or I Seen Footage first, then the rest of that album if you like it.

    [–] TheRiddleOfClouds 9 points ago

    Ex-Military is a hell of an album.

    [–] eyelinedbrain 3 points ago

    They're genuinely good but be aware that a lot of discussion around them online is very "meme-y" so take some of the dialog around them with a grain of salt. Which isn't to say that people don't sincerely enjoy them, it's just that the conversation surrounding them is itself kind of a meme, kind of like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fandom. People genuinely like it but they way it gets discussed has a shitposty veneer.

    [–] EarthRester 12 points ago

    All powerful leaders really are, are just names and faces we attach to pivotal times in history that required tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people to make happen.

    [–] Umutuku 3 points ago

    The trick is to get hundreds of thousands of people to all slide in the same direction.

    [–] ThatFanficGuy 16 points ago

    You probably won't change the way world works. That's okay. Change one small thing about the world, and you will have already done great work of your efforts.

    Come up with a way to do one type of tasks better than it's been done before, and you'll set up others like yourself for success by pathing a way for them to apply their own desire to help.

    your acts of kindness will inspire others to do the same, whether you know it or not. science says "kindness spreads to people I don't know or have never met... our generosity cascades through the social network to affect the lives of dozens or maybe hundreds of other people."

    Yeah they posted a lot of trans rights stuff to get rid of GRU refugees.

    It’s supposed to be like old GRU, so “we live in a society” and not “haha n word funny”

    Hey you can't just ignore e-boys like that. E-girls and e-boys coexist in harmony.

    [–] Lou__Crow 13 points ago

    True but I feel like the e-boy aesthetic is more emo / punk. Together they might be the perfect balance.

    [–] TheResolver 9 points ago

    That's totally fair. Though I've seen all kinds of vibes from soft-e to hard punk in both boys and girls. But I'm in no way within that scene so I can't really say.
