I don't know if anyone here likes or even knows what ska is but I'm plugging my site anyways.
I made this site with my brothers and the site itself isn't finished, yet. The message board is. Here are the links:
Random Ska Junk (http://www.geocities.com/randomskajunk/)
RSJ Message Board (http://randomska.conforums.com/index.cgi)
It would be cool if you could tell me what you think of the site and board, so far.
thanks.

Ska is a style of music that most people describe as rock or punk mixed with reggae. That's the easiest way to describe it, even though thats not totally right.
This place a pretty good description of what it is: http://www.skasummit.com/ska_what.php

Some ska bands you might already know are Sublime, (old)No Doubt, Less Than Jake, NOFX plays a little ska, Reel Big Fish, and other bands like thoes.

If those bands are your definition of ska, I wonder how well your forum must be.

"POLL: Were the Ramones a ska band?"

When some boady asks what ska is I don't really expect them to know any SKA bands. Thoes bands play ska, but thay do other stuff too.

Is "boady" a new gay British slang term for a hated group of people, like "chav"?

Wasn't ska the original dance-hall music that was the influence, not the consequence, of reggae?

I know thats what 'kind of' written in the website you posted, but i still don't think people understand it...

Most forums don't have Geneal chat, but I think that would be a pretty interesting forum to be in.

i think the ska that that first poster guy is talking about is like third generation ska, after it got to america, the more modern version

if you want ska thats easy to find try big d and the kids table or if you dont mind a religious theme 5 iron frenzy, these will give you a pretty good idea i think........

but im probably totally off

btw the skank is like the coolest dance ever

Skanking is what makes a ska show. Ska pits are the greatest.

I heard one song by Animal Collective that I liked quite a bit. It was interesting but seemed to be more odd and novelty-ish than being actually entertaining though, so I never checked out anything more by them. Are they normally ska? I never would've guessed from that song.

no not ska at all
kind of experimental tribal psychedelic music
very building rising noise sound to it tho, so maybe theres some sonic youth influence

Well, I got fucked there. I have ghetto ass dial-up so I am completely incapible of streming music. I would have been able to spend an hour downloading a song if they had any available for download. :(

Good idea. I'll probably be visiting Best Buy Saturday anyway to get my goddamn MSI cd I've been needing. I'll have to write down the name of the band and carry it in my wallet because I'll forget for sure.

Both very awesome bands.

I don't totally know the perfect history of ska. But, I know it started in Jamaica, with the combination of Mento and Calypso. This was in the 50s I should add. The best known first wave ska band is The Skatalites. Then I think it kind of died out.
Then in the late 70s, ska reemerged with the 2nd wave. Good 2nd wave ska bands are The Specials and Madness. 2tone was the name for most ska at that time. Then I think it kind of died out again.
Then I guess in the very late 80s, the 3rd wave of ska started. There are too many bands to mention. But it also spreads out into tons of little sub genres. Like ska-punk, ska-core, and you get the idea.

and Big D is awesome, I haven't given Five Iron Frenzy a good try yet, I know they've broken up and they were prety popular.
