    That guy in the pics is Screamin' Jay Hawkins to provide you with some Halloween creeps. You gotta see his showmanship in this video. He somehow manages to be both silly and yet very intimidating at the same time:

    Here, though, is a vastly more convincing demonstration of a spell:

    I saw Screaming Jay live about 35 years ago. He made a grand entrance through the crowd, wearing a purple satin suit with a matching wide-brimmed hat and floor-length cape. He had to be about 6'5" tall, and he was escorted by a gorgeous little Latino lady less than 5' tall, with hair down to the backs of her knees and a mini-skirt that reached nowhere near there. When they reached the stage, she ceremoniously removed his cape, folded it, and strutted off (to appreciative whistles from the crowd) and Jay launched into a graphic rendition of "Constipation Blues". What a riot!

    Zoob, that doll's pins are all placed in all the areas I've been injured lately. Coincidence? :devil:

    Any number of pins randomly applied to a voodoo doll will match one of Evo's various injuries with a high degree of probability.

    It depends on whether David Deutsch managed to get your soul into the doll. This video will tell you how to check for that:




    (I strongly suspect he did. You called him "handsome".)

    That must have been a treat to see!

    The origin of the act is very interesting:

    It's been amazingly popular:

    The concert was an oldies show featuring (sometimes remnants of) the Coasters and the Shirrells, with performances by Screaming Jay and Chuck Berry. Being a guitarist, I went to see Chuck, but Jay stole the show. Even though his act was a novelty-act, his band was a talented bunch. The show was financed in part by our student activity fund and tickets were a nominal $1.50 each. Also got to see Brubeck and Mulligan for the same price on another occasion, and some other pretty nice acts, including Ravi Shankar. This was Jay's signature song and he held it for last.

    Oh Yeah. I remember how cheap it was to see giants when I was in college. I would love to have seen Chuck Berry, but I did get to see Duke Ellington for a dollar. Unbelievable when you think of it now.
