I'll probably talk about it later too, but I figured I should (1) actually write on this blog instead of moping in the corner and (2) explain this other thing that I've been working on.
As far as the second thing is concerned, and I'll talk about it more in the future, many of you could probably guess that I spend a lot of time on the internet. I do a lot of research. You can insert whatever joke you want about what that "research" actually involves, but I do spend a lot of time trying to look into unexplained events, disappearances, etc.
One of the things that I stumbled upon were creepypastas. Maybe I'm way behind on all this like so many other things, but I totally got lost in all the stories out there. And there are A LOT of stories out there. I noticed that a lot of them get covered on Youtube a lot, but for the life of me, I can barely find any existence of them in podcasts, despite all the podcasts out there.
Now, there could be a lot of reasons for this, not the least of which the whole issue of who actually wrote or owns the stories, but I figured "hell, I've got a lot of time on my hands, what if I do this? Maybe it will be cathartic."
So I started recording. Every time I found a creepypasta story that I really liked, I sat down and recorded it, at first just for my own amusement and to kill time, but then I decided, what was the point of keeping these? I'm already putting this out for people to hear, why not get in on the whole "scary story" trend.
It's a nice escape from my own living scary story.
So, I figure that I have enough recorded content to put out about 40 or so weekly episodes, maybe more that I set on auto-post, so if for some reason I get too busy with something or...I don't even want to think about it...the podcast will post automatically.
And that's it. The trailer for Creepy is out there on iTunes and a few other places and the first episode will post next Monday. I hope you like them. I really have no idea if I'm any good at telling scary stories, but they are free, so enjoy.
