Default Skanking.

will be the downfall of ska music.

it's the only dance that I refuse to do at a concert.

p.s. ska-scenesters are the worst kind've scenester. you fruits with your bowler hats, checkered chucks, green suits and your "skank naked" t-shirts are really, really way too cool for me.

****ing weirdos.

As far as I know, 'skanking' is just a general term used for any kind of dance to ska or reggae music.

When I go to ska gigs I just run on the spot very fast in time to the music. I'm pretty fit so I like to show off!

I think skanking is very fun, ecspecially the brotherhood skank. At ska shows not a single person in the house should be able to stand still.. you can't go to a ska show and just stand there. It's not natural.

As far as the ska scenesters go.. the checkered chucks aren't for scenesters.. at least around here. If you could tell me the meaning behind the checkerboard, then you are legit, but if it's just to look cool, you're a scenester. The checkerboard is a powerful symbol and goes way back.

When you say 'checkerboard', are you referring to the black and white check symbol used by Two-Tone (second wave ska)?
