So Buckbean Brewing Company, whom I have touted on this blog many times, is holding a contest. And I am begging you, send me to CANFEST. Details below:
Starting now and lasting until the 1st week of September, we’re offering those with an established beer blog (meaning you didn’t build a blog simply to participate in this contest) an opportunity to write one blog post, centered on why they deserve to come to CANFEST.
Once we’ve got the compiled list of blog posts, we will post every link to our blog and filter via social networks, and pick a winner based on votes. The winner will be flown to Reno for the weekend and have the opportunity to attend all of CANFEST’s festivities and even be a guest judge during the competition portion.
I found out about this in, oh, July, and as usual, I procrastinated until almost the last minute., mostly because I wanted to think of a really creative blog entry.
And I failed.
At first I thought I’d try to come up with an autotuned song explaining why I should be selected. But even autotune couldn’t help me sound halfway decent. If I make your ears bleed, I guarantee you won’t vote for me!
Then I thought I’d do a video explaining, in a funny way and pulling in various memes like the double rainbow guy and Antoine Dodson, but my video camera uses Hi-8 tapes and I don’t quite know how to convert them to digital. Yes, I know no one uses tapes much anymore, but at least I’m not still rolling with the full size VHS tapes!
Then I thought I would impress you with my engineering knowledge and explain to you why I should be there to judge the viscosity of the beer and calculate the flow rate as the canned beer is shotgunned by various folks, but thought that would bore you. Heck, it bored me!
Then I had the brilliant idea of using my extremely hyper-masculine rugged movie star looks, hoping the ladies’ votes would put me over the edge. But then I realized, I’m as ugly as a post! And not a freshly painted, brand new post….a raggedy post with peeling paint that’s been peed on by dogs and knocked askew as a result of an unfortunate meeting with a Chevette.
Finally, I decided just to appeal to your sense of sympathy. Please please please send me to CANFEST. As you can see, I am a procrastinating out-of-tune-singing obsolete-technology-using engineering-studying ugly-as-a-post beer blogger hoping you find it in your heart to take pity on me and send me to CANFEST.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart….and my beer belly.
