Milk And Blood: Tell Me What Thy Name Is On The Night's Plutonium Shore

A former classmate, Milk And Blood, writes about her rediscovery of Edgar Allan Poe. An excerpt from her blog entry, Tell Me What Thy Name Is On The Night's Plutonium Shore:

I have rediscovered Edgar Allan Poe. I tried reading him as a child starting with Fall of the House of Usher. Apparently that language and vocabulary for that one was a bit too much to grasp. When I was a teenager and getting into goth, I tried again with some of his short stories and quiet enjoyed them, and we studied the poem Annabel Lee in school and I quite enjoyed it's tone of both pride and despair.

I also couldn't forget watching Vincent Price reading "The Raven."

Later on, I took a liking to his classics, "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Masque of the Red Death." I'll never forget the Masque of the Red Death because I never knew it would the starting point of an incredible discussion with a blue eyed model at a club outside 3am. I couldn't compete with the other babes in terms of having hot legs but when it came to Masque of the Red Death--I could definitely score points.

Poe as conversation-piece with a model, hehe. :) Way to go!
