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.

Jason --

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.)
