Who better (aside from Poe) presents us with a wealth of imagery and dark humour befitting the Victorian Goth set than Charles Addams? His iconic family is deeply beloved, and has been the inspiration for many a Victorian Goth's home decor as well as providing the template for the perfect loving couple, totally absorbed with one another, doting on their children, loving toward their family members and compassionate (in their own way) toward everyone else who wanders into their brilliantly twisted lives.
Please join me in celebrating the 100th birthday of a man who has brought us dark joy, twisted laughs and inspired television series, films and now, a Broadway musical. Take a moment of silence, play a bit of harpsichord and snap your fingers in memory of Charles (Chas.) Addams.
Keeping it Spooky =)
