Two Bastard Faves, United for Halloween

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.

Not Lou Reed, but Willem Defoe.

Oh, dear, I've been played by that tricksy Lou.

Thanks for the information!
