    Scary. First thought that came to mind from thread title was "Beatnik Poe has a grave?".

    $10 says it's him.

    Though it's in color, Professor Fate from The Great Race fits the rest of that description well. Jack Lemmon rocks.

    Cool that it's become a generational family thing.

    Still creepy though.

    Man...that's Goth.

    I bet if Poe were alive today, he'd be on Livejournal. With a red font on a black background, natch.

    I think it's Poe's own body. he had himself reanimated using bizarre technology, and visits his own grave every year to keep himself looking cool and mysterious.
    I know I would.

    I think that's a lovely tradition.

    It's a shame there are always people who can't be satisfied without knowing everything, and in trying to destroy the mystery, spoil it for others too.

    I say, why not? In my opinion, I think it's great that someone does that.

    That's too cool. Hope we find out who's been doing it and why.

    Makes me wonder if ghosts or spirits can mess with us for laughs. Even though it's not really a related subject since who's doing this is alive.
