    ERB #42 Discussion- Stephen King vs Edgar Allan Poe


    Spoiler: 

    Edgar Allan Poe:
    Once upon a midnight dreary, as I spit this weak and weary
    I will choke this joker with a trochee 'til his cheeks are teary (AHH!)
    But y'all don't hear me, all should fear me!
    I'll forever be better, you'll never be near me, your books are as eerie as Beverly Cleary!
    You're a faux Bram Stoker, so scram, the show's over
    Your flow's so-so, Poe's poems pwn posers! (Snap!)
    I wrote 'em locked in a cave, while I sobbed in a rage
    The Tell-Tale Heart beats soft in his grave
    While this jerk just beats off on a page!

    Stephen King:
    Oh, you wanna talk shop, you gothed-out fop?
    Go back to Hot Topic and shop for a top
    There's a melancholy alcoholic laughing stock
    In the King's house, now watch the Castle Rock
    Pouty little poet with an opiate affliction
    I'm a workaholic with a fiction addiction
    I'm making dedicated readers shivery and jittery
    Feel that Rage and Misery
    You better start Running Man, you're in deep poo, Poe
    I'm a mad dog, fangs Shining, Cujo
    Tommyknock you down 'til you can't Stand up
    You're as soft as Po the Kung Fu Panda
    Racks on racks 'cos I pen fat stacks of frightening writing, have you seen the pile?
    I can even take a break from my routine style
    Crank out a Shawshank or a Green Mile
    Masque of the Red Death? Barely blood curdling
    Pit and the Pendulum? Not even unnerving
    Perving on your first cousin when she's thirteen years old? Now that's disturbing

    Edgar Allan Poe:
    Stephen, you pretend to do it, I've been really living through it - misery and poverty and family woes
    I see through you like pantyhose, doing Chappelle and Simpsons cameos! (ahh!)
    Even if you're gripping on a weapon then you better get to stepping if you're messing with the horror lord
    In a minute maybe, I'mma hit him, cut him into itty bitty bits and I'mma stick em in the floorboards

    Stephen King:
    (Sigh) Speaking of bored, you're the worst
    Dropped out of school but you can't drop a verse
    I could have spent that time better
    In eight bars I can write a whole best-seller
    I'm so prolific, this sickly goblin won't be bothering me, I'm on a clobbering spree
    And I'll be smacking you with any of the big thick books in my big dick bibliography
    See, I'm the author with the blood and gore lore galore that'll horrify a reader to the core
    Fame? Money? Talent? Success? You'll always have less (Never more!)

    It's an okay matchup. Not the best, but it's okay

    Personally I'd prefer Lovecraft or Rod Serling or Tim Burton as an opponent but I'm cool with this one.

    Actual plot twist and it's Doc Brown vs Doctor Who 2

    I actually think Zach could pull off an awesome Lovecraft but seeing as he hasn't been hinted it's not likely. I suppose I'm excited a lot about King though. They could have a character of his come in but then again they don't need to.

    I really hope they don't go the Shakespeare vs Seuss route and have King's characters do the rapping instead of him.

    I feel like King doesn't really have any character that would rap for him. Maybe The Gunslinger, but with supposedly Sherwin playing King, and Sherwin recording raps, we can assume it will be King rapping.

    I'm sure King would be rapping, I mean he can talk & everything. As for characters mentioned already there is Jack Torrance (The Shining) or Pennywise the Dancing Clown (It) that could work if any were to come in. On a side-note, I really want a "Misery" reference because I just love that book.

    The matchup is fine as is. I just want Poe to be a bit different from Watsky's past characters. If he's going to fast rap have him do it at The Doctor's level (Shakespeare's was too fast, it was just annoying), and do it for both verses and that'd be pretty cool and different.

    Thanks peeps <3333

    In all honesty, I don't think he should rap fast at all. I know that's his talent, but to me it would feel out of Poe's character. Poe's voice should be deep, condescending, and steady. I think it would be a nice mix up for Watsky to do something different.

    I always imagined him sounding like Alan Rickman as Snape.
