Hell of a lot more monkey-related deaths than I expected

The murder in the Cask of Amantillado always gets me. Seriously, it gives me chills whenever I think about.

Fortunado: For the love of God, Montresor!

Montresor: Yes, for the love of God!


Creepy as all hell.

BY the last breath of the four winds that blow
I'll have revenge upon Fortunato
Smile in his face I'll say "come let us go
I've a cask of Amontillado"

Sheltered inside from the cold of the snow
Follow me now to the vault down below
Drinking the wine as we laugh at the time
Which is passing incredibly slow

(What are these chains that are binding my arm?)
Part of you dies each passing day
(Say it's a game and I'll come to no harm)
You'll feel your life slipping away

You who are rich and whose troubles are few
May come around to see my point of view
What price the Crown of a King on his throne
When you're chained in the dark all alone

(Spare me my life only name your reward)
Part of you dies each brick I lay
(Bring back some light in the name of the Lord)
You'll feel your mind slipping away

This album got me interested in reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe. I still love reading them and the APP is one of my all-time favorite bands.

The Turn of a Friendly Card signalled the start of my descent into gambling addiction. Funny how these things work out.

I had to re-read number 7 a couple of times before I understood it, 'cause I was asking myself how a razor wields a monkey. But I guess that would be "monkey-wielding razor."

Monkey Wielding Razor is a good name for an embarrassingly ornate yet uncomfortably strong cocktail.

#6 is not really clear. She is looking out a small window in the face of a large city clock (like Big Ben) and the minute hand traps it there and she cannot pull her head back in.

And time marches on.

It was really a slam on the Blackwood magazine and their story style. A satire.

I see someone other than me has that album. Maybe. And an excellent one it is.

Yeah, but the farking cat did him in. Cats. Scourge of the world if you want to be a murderer.

I'll kill mine before I murder someone. Can't be too careful nowadays.
