My friend Peter Damien posted a youtube video of John DeLancie (Q from ST:NG) reading Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.” It was a good reading and made me look for many more. If you youtube “The Raven” you’ll find several wonderful versions by Christopher Walken, Vincent Price, and Basil Rathbone, to name just a few.
Anyway, I digress. Peter thought it would be fun, it being Halloween and all, if we each decided to record ourselves reading “The Raven” and posting it.
OK, despite the fact that I’m a horrible out-loud reader — I tend to stumble over words, misprounounce them, just utterly mash up whatever it is I read, as you’ll soon hear — I said, “Sure, I’ll give it a go.”
Here then, is my rather unassuming and embarrassing reading of “The Raven” by the great Edgar Allan Poe.
Hope you like it, Pete.
