time travel


Charlie Barker trades in his straw hat for a soldier’s helmet today for the Sideshow of the Surreal.  Lines are draw and the battlefront is all around.  Keep your head down it you may be shot at!

In a dystopian conflict in the all too familiar not too distant future, it really stinks to be BEHIND ENEMY LINES.  What is even more tragic is THE HOPELESS WAR.  But there is always R&R if you can get leave.  Spend it at THE TAVERN AT FOREVER’S EDGE.  The bartender is out of this world.

Three tales from the south take over the Circus of the Unknown next time.  Join us then and until then, keep your head down.


There’s trickery and Tom-Foolery and other shenanigans in the sideshow today.  Tricks abound, but listen – take heed and don’t fall for it.  Charlie will try and steer you clear of such nonsense by way of tales of warning.  Three paths to avoid, if you will.

The first tale is about a guy who keeps scratching his head and is sure he has been through all this before.  It’s a strange tale of how SYSTEM CONSTRAINTS shaped his reality.  Then, we drive over to White Bluff, Tennessee, for a look at a local legend in our “States of Fear” sub-series.  Close your ears, though, or you might hear THE WHITE SCREAMER OF TENNESSEE.  Lastly, it’s the futuristic tale of what happens when the time changes and we FALL BACK out of Daylight Saving.

Now that we’ve made it all the way to Tennessee in our States of Fear, it’s time to get back in the car and head west for next time.  See you then.


Hello, all you clock watchers.  The circus is back.  The sideshow is open for business.  Let’s just hope you have time to do it justice.

Time is the operative word today, ladies and gentlemen.  The three stories for today all have to do with time and our perception of it.  First, what would happen if your memories were all scripted for the sake of some ulterior motive?  We examine that in MEMORY REIMAGINED.  The EERIE EDITION give headlines of tomorrow – but why do they all have to be so grim?  Third, it’s time to SPRING FORWARD.  Here, you set your clocks forward an hour and your life back to nothing.

My, but time flies.  It seems like you just got here and now the sideshow is closing.  There’s always next time.
