Thirteen Days Until Halloween


On this 13th Day before Halloween I would like to remind you that Edgar Allen Poe’s


was written by his rival and critic

and that his rival created the madman and lunatic in that obituary

we have come to be familiar with today.


Two things.


When I found out that part of David Tennant’s makeup person’s job on the set of

” Doctor Who ” was to fluff his hair AND that it was possible to write obituaries for

people you hated and that you could say anything you wanted about them and it would

stick to their legacy as if you had used gallons of crazy glue- I realized I  hadn’t chosen

my career path wisely.

And I wept.
