Stan Lee's Acting Talents Finally Put To Good Use with Poe's "The Raven." Actually, I kind of wanted to post a reading of "Annabel Lee" in the last entry with the short-short stories--I've read it in public before, although I guess me reading it does put sort of an unexpected sapphic overtone on it ("I Buried a Girl and I Liked It"?)--but for some reason, I just could not get my mouth around the word sepulchre today. I can give you Christopher Walken's reading of "The Raven" instead, however.

Twilight (yes, there's a lot of it, WHATEVER): I re-uploaded the Rome clips; Better-quality Rome footage on YouTube for now, from bella_stella78 (plus a transcript). The thing I still find the funniest about the Rome footage is that Bella arrives at the house (okay, maybe the funniest thing is Edward speed-mo-ing over to open the car door for her), and the Cullens are just cheerfully cooking dinner for her. I mean... what? I would rather just not do dinner at all than try to have it with a bunch of vampires who can't eat staring at me. "
