FRIGHTS OF FANTASY

The pages of storybook are opened in the sideshow today.  Charlie barker has some frightful fantasies to read you, straight from the realms of alternate reality so you know they are absolutely true.

What does every good following of Hansel and Gretel do when travelling through the deep, dark woods?  Why, they leave BREADCRUMBS, of course.  But where does that trail lead?  It just may be that you get lost anyway.  Such is the case when DEATH STOPS FOR DIRECTIONS.  Finally, it’s time for proper grooming.  Even monsters need to look their best.  It’s a good thing THE BARBERSHOP FROM HELL caters to their needs.

The storybook eventually closes for us all, my friends.  Yet the circus remains.  Come back again.  Charlie Barker will be waiting for you.

MUSIC HATH CHARMS

Being a carny, Charlie Barker has an affinity for the calliope.  Yet, he can still appreciate different forms of musical expression.  Today, there are three tunes he would like to share.

The first little number is about a single mother and her young daughter who rely on a LULLABY to keep the monsters away.  Let’s hope it works.  Next, it’s the tale of THE TELL-TALE JUKEBOX.  It’s the same old song and dance about a murderous bartender haunted by the ghost of his victim – well the ghost’s favorite song on the jukebox, anyway.  The last composition is called THE YOUNG SNAKE-HANDLER about a girl who charms the slithery beasts through music.

That’s all you get.  Three tunes.  If you want more, you’ll have to come back again next time.
