Halloween 666 Series #4: Nevermore

The Full Nevermore Set

This year I am celebrating Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and quite a few other poems and stories that were inspired by both his Mother and Wife (both) dying at age 24 from Tuberculosis. He might have had some existing mental health issues – but his substance abuse and unending grieving seemed to drive him mad and over the top. He was a very smart guy – but had a rough life and died a really sad death. I suppose he would be sort of like “The 27 Club” – where famous artists died early. However, Poe made it to the ripe old age of 40. But in a weird way, he reminds me of Kurt Cobain.

I think with this episode – I’ve exhausted (exhumed) my Poe energy. Next week I will have a really diabolically funny (and yeah – somewhat cliche) Halloween Perennial Favorite theme – but I promise – it will be twisted in my own way and style. I’m quite excited.

Stay tuned, in Tune, etc
