I Recommend…Marquese Scott, dubstep, “Pumped Up Kicks” Foster the People (Month of Thanksgiving Day 2)

(Month of Thanksgiving is exactly what it sounds like: a [hopefully] daily dose of the things for which I give thanks during the month of November.)

Today I am thankful for this video of an amazing dancer, Marquese Scott, performing to a song I freaking love. The ways he makes his body move are fantastic.

Waiting on Wednesday…Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale (Month of the Werewolf Day Five)

From, I am impatiently waiting on Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale. (IMPATIENTLY, I tell you. I have set my people to work procuring it for me, by which I mean Tech Guru, who has a liquor store hookup, is tracking it down for me. If he can’t find it, I have another source to try.) I don’t even drink Newcastle much, but I want to try this.

Since I haven’t yet and therefore can’t review it here (which I will do when I find it), I provide for you a review from The Beers Gone Bad, which I had never seen before until I went looking for more information about this WEREWOLF BLOOD RED ALE. God, that name, people, DO WANT.

Much like the boys from Beers Gone Bad, when I look at this beer, I think of An American Werewolf in London, which is one of my favorite werewolf movies. The label and the name make me think of drinking in dark pubs with the full moon rising outside and the monsters within just waiting to be free. That or drinking around a bonfire while monsters how in the distance.

I will let you know if drinking it makes me want to howl at the moon. (Huh, this just made me want to write a very specific scene using this beer. I will let you know if it makes it into a story that is publicly available.)

Speaking of drinking, what are your favorite things to drink in the autumn? I love October and need something to drink around the bonfire.
