Music Monday: Edgar Allan Poe

Okay, okay.
It's not music.
But I just HAD to post this awesome video of Vincent Price's rendition of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
1) The Raven is one of my favourite poems by one of my favourite writers.
2) Vincent Price is just awesome.
3) Poe was born January 19th 1809, making today his 200th birthday. I had originally planned on commemorating the day by getting a raven tattoo, but those plans fell through (don't worry mom!).

Also worth checking out is the NY Times' Poe at 200 slideshow.

Happy Birthday Edgar!
