What do they all have in common? Well, just this post, really. And YouTube.
The Raven, as told by Vincent Price
I wanted to put up a nifty tribute (like the Stephen King one from a few days ago) to the man - they're all over YouTube - but for two things. One, none of them were quite what I want out of a tribute to him, and two, the Stephen King one used Thriller, I don't want to post another video that uses Thriller. Guess what the best ones used? Yeah. Granted, it's appropriate, but geez.
(In case you're not sick of "Thriller" yet, here it is.)
But I did find this. The colors have faded, and the sound is terrible, but it is Vincent Price. Performing The Raven. For Halloween. What, I was gonna pass this up?
And I simply must share this: I found this initially at Armagideon Time, one of the very cool blogs I've found through the Halloween-a-thon, and thought, "YES! I must swipe this and post it for my very own!" only to find that The Retropolitan (another very cool blog I found on the Halloween-a-thon) swiped it first thing this morning.
Ah well. No post meant as a virtual hug for Vincent Price can do without posting it, so here it is anyway.
And what the hell, as long as we're on the subject of Vincent Price and Muppets, here's this:
And that was as lengthy a post as I've done in over a year. Whew! I'm so damn glad my blog isn't one of those writing-type ones. I enjoy reading them, but I don't know how y'all do it.
