In the second and third Matrix movies, Persephone is the name of a character seated in a place called Club Hel. Sound familiar? (Source.)

There is a death metal band called Persefone, and a German darkwave band called Persephone. Who wants to bet those bands have some oddball groupies?

Rita Dove has got some serious moves. She's a trained ballroom dancer! As a writer said of her: "dance is an implicit parallel to poetry." Awesome. (Source.)
