Edgar Allen Poe's Birthday Bash

Jan 19, 2009 marks Edgar Allen Poe's 200th birthday and the city of Baltimore is kicking off a year of festivities to celebrate the dark bard. Go to the Nevermore 2009 website for a list of events which include a tribute by actor John Astin, a five course Poe-themed dinner, a movie showing of The Pit and the Pendulum and a reenactment of a scientific experiment gone awry, (complete with mummy).

Because of a long-standing personal issue with his publicist, Paisley is unable to offer a free ipod wallpaper download of Edgar. However, he is able to offer this painting of his brother Dwight. Little is known about about the younger Poe, except that he died in a freak accident in a lady's hosiery mill and was much more fun at parties. (click on the image above and drag it to your desktop to use as an ipod wallpaper)
