ITEM! It seems that both Yours Truly and my bestest biddy-buddy Kevin Smith both have a fondness for the classics, and you don’t get any classier than The Raven! And I don't mean the Red Raven from Rawhide Kid #38 (Feb. 1964 — Studious Stan). No I mean another literary classic, namely Edgar Alan Poe's The Raven (Jan. 1845 — Still Studious and sometimes even Scholarly Stan). Recently, Kevin asked me to tape a reading of The Raven for his QuickStop Entertainment website and I was more than happy to oblige. Be sure and go over there at quickstopentertainment.com and check out all of the other Halloween goodies, not the least of which are some wacky webisodes from his new movie Zack & Miri Make a Porno. Warning: you have to be 18 or over (which thankfully I am, give-or-take-five-or-six-decades) to watch the Zack & Miri webisodes! Meanwhile, enjoy the following daringly dramatic reading (in two parts)... if you dare! Bwhuahahaha!
