Being a New Yorker, is it any wonder that I grew up a fan of late, lamented local hero Lou Reed? I am also a fan of former Bronx resident Edgar Allan Poe. In an interborough collaboration appropriate for the runup to Halloween, here's Brooklyn-born Reed reciting an adaptation of Bronx-dwelling Poe's The Raven:
And the raven goes 'Neh neh neh neh neh neh nevermore.'
Tomorrow begins weekend two of a busy October, so I'll be posting mainly short, seasonal bits for the next few days. Oddly enough, the 'grotesque and gothic' Halloween fare is quite a distraction from the real horrors of everyday life lately.
CORRECTION: In the comments, DVHughes informs me that the vocal on this is by guest star Willem Dafoe. Thanks for setting me straight.
