How AproPoe

Mark your calendars. On January 19th, the day marking the 200th birthday of Edgar Allan Poe, there will be a free world web premier of the feature film Poe, Last Days of the Raven.

Who knew? I had no idea…good thing I watched that Philadelphia New Year’s Day Mummers Parade or I’d be in the dark about Poe’s 200th birthday. I would certainly hate to miss this party. I’m thinking something special should be planned; I’ll get to that later. It is a Monday, figures, how apropoe (wink) that Edgar Allan Poe’s 200th birthday would land on the worst day of the week.

Tell me why, I don’t like Mondays…sorry I digress…hmmm, Boomtown Rats, Poe might have liked that.

Here is some creative fun for a daily exercise, let’s stretch our imaginations and comment on what musical artists or what songs Poe would be a fan of today…any time after his death, don’t worry if you divulge your age, the more macabre the merrier.

    I don’t know the name of the album but mom often played it when we were young. I know I’ll never forget some of the refrains although I wish I could! The refrain that popped into my head when I read your post was “D*mn their eyes.” A fellow who’d committed several murders was being led to his execution. Suitably macabre for Poe, don’t you think?

    That sounds interesting.Sounds like a lyric from old Pink Floyd, maybe Metal. LOL And I do think Poe would have liked that.
