However, last night, as I was sitting down to do my recording, friend of the blog and narrator of BRAINEATER JONES Steve Rimpici posted his own version, in a '30s noir style. It's so good I decided to put off my own meager efforts until next year, and just share it with you here. Actually, when I was listening last night I saw a raven-shaped opening in the clouds. But the picture, of course, just looks like my phone was broken, otherwise I would share it with you here and spook you out.
So, enjoy, "The Raven" as recited by Officer Weathers as performed by Steve Rimpici. Make sure to turn the lights out, light a candle, and turn away from the screen and just...you know...listen.
