It's as though somewhere out in the world, someone has a giant voodoo doll likeness of me. For reasons I can't explain, that person is sticking sharp pins and punching the doll frequently and without mercy. Allow me to formally ask whoever that may be to knock it off. I promise I'll be good. Or bad. Whatever you need me to do, just stop with the volume of crap being dumped on me at this time. I totally can't deal.
Even the beer isn't helping today, which is surprising because it's a good one. Soothing my soul with a little Weizen Bock from Ayinger. In my trusty General Jackson Showboat glass, the beer is a hazy shade of yellow, with a foamy head (mostly due to Marci's pour, I think). Delicious aromas of wheat and banana, and the taste combines notes of yeast, banana, clove, and bubblegum sweetness. Really a delicious offering - both complex and easy to drink in one fell swoop. If you're drinking some macro beer version of a wheat beer (looking at you, Blue Moon drinkers), knock that shit off and pick up a bottle of this beer. You'll thank me later.

Thing to Think About Today:
Okay, so I was only half kidding about the voodoo doll thing. Maybe someone put a spell on me. Actually, that must be what happened. With that in mind, let's all think about Screamin' Jay Hawkins and this, um, classic (?) hit. I can't figure out the first 30 seconds of this video, but I guess that's the point. Stick with it beyond there and you'll get to hear a great version of I Put a Spell On You:
