This one's for the fans of Tim Burton's "Beetle Juice"--

Go ye to the Thomas Lovell Beddoes Sound Gallery. This is a goth poet and playwrite from the early 1800s. A terribly morbid man, tragic beyond all reason, he ultimately died of complications of trying to cut his own leg off.

At any rate, select the link: "Listen to Side 1." Be immersed in the language of Beddoes. Thrill to it. Possibly take ill. And when you can't handle it any more, or just to get to the punchline, advance to 10:38 and listen to the next poem.

Recognize it? :)
