Pardon Me, Can Spare 25K?

Marilyn Manson is not just an avant guarde musician... He had some really smart things to say in the Michael Moore film "Bowling for Columbine" and you may or may not know... but he's also an amazing artist.

He has created a multi medium rendition of Poe that is truly brilliant. I would love to own it...for only 25,000.00.

Sigh-- some girls want diamonds... :)

Poe Digital Archive

Through the magic of Facebook (thank you Scott!) I have been turned onto a great website about Poe I thought I would share. The Poe Digital Collection is an absolute candy box of letters, images, books and other assorted miscellena that will be of interest to any Poe fan.

Jump in and enjoy!
