I've been reading Edgar Allen Poe's stories in the spirit of the holiday. I read one called "The Imp of the Perverse" and "The Black Cat" where he also mentions "the Spirit of Perverseness". By his definition essentially the urge to destroy yourself.
I just like to find connections between things.

I've always loved Poe, and not just for his stories, but for all the artists he's inspired (and who have in turn inspired me): Baudelaire, for one. The Corman adaptations are fantastic. (Vincent Price is such a wonderful dandy -- part of a triumvirate that must surely include George Sanders and Tom Conway.)
