Edgar Allan Poe/Raven

Serenity, TV, and Poe

My first installment of "Attack of the 5'2" Woman" came earlier than I originally intended at Pop Thought. I simply had to show the love for Serenity.

Incidentally, does anyone know of good Halloween television programming to recommend for US viewers? Here are the channels that I know have special plans:
ABC Family's 13 Nights of Halloween
Fox Movie Channel's 13 Nights of Fright
TCM's Alfred Hitchcock Tribute
Showtime's Masters of Horror

And now, a quote for the day.

Eternal brood the shadows on this ground,
Dreaming of centuries that have gone before;
Great elms rise solemnly by slab and mound,
Arched high above a hidden world of yore.
Round all the scene a light of memory plays,
And dead leaves whisper of departed days,
Longing for sights and sounds that are no more.

Lonely and sad, a specter glides along
Aisles where of old his living footsteps fell;
No common glance discerns him, though his song
Peals down through time with a mysterious spell.
Only the few who sorcery's secret know,
Espy amidst these tombs the shade of Poe.
