A brief word of explanation–this just goes to show that the best laid plains of mice and Widge etc. etc.
So I shot this video with an eye towards it going up first in my whole 32 Days of Halloween slash Poe slash Bicentennial bit. But then there was the chance to read at his gravesite vigil–and I couldn’t rightly give that up, and so thus this–which I didn’t have time to put together before needing to put the reading up.
But here I am explaining what the hell this whole Baltimore thing is about. Working on the other videos now.
One other footnote: the joke with chains and focus didn’t work because, as is readily apparent, my camera is smarter than I am. And I left that part in because it’s spoooky how it didn’t work.
