Oh, and I'm a total jerk. I should have put some spoiler space above the picture as I'm holding up a copy of 17-Across in that blurry picture up above. Forgive me.
Quick thought: Thanks to all who were able to give a little bit to the tip jar so far. Every penny helps immensely toward keeping this site independent and running smoothly (have I mentioned my laptop died and needs replacing?) Any tip is a way of saying thanks for the puzzles this month (or year). And again, I will give any object from the BEQ.com store (t-shirt, mug, you name it) to one randomly selected donor. Thanks again.
Share the puzzle. Tell me how amazing my taste in music is in the comments section. (Or, conversely, tell me how much it sucks or what I missed.) New puzzle on Friday.
