Small Leather Gloves - A Short Horror Story Written by Spooky Boo

The carnival. A place of happiness and carefree laughter. The place where children and parents laugh and ride the carnival rides while getting a thrill of a lifetime. It is also a place where the degenerate and creepy hide so that others may not find them.

We all know the stories about clowns and carnies. Well, we think we know the stories of clowns and carnies. Most of the tales are made up lies. MOST of them. Some of the clowns and carnies are different. Usually derelicts in their time. Anyone will hire a carnie because they can travel and move on with the fair. Most of them have a past and cannot find a normal job or career.

I know a lot about carnivals because I grew up with one. I moved from city to city with my father--watching the other kids play with their friends and parents while I sat alone without friends. There weren't many kids who traveled with us so I was all alone. My dad taught me reading, writing, and math. He was really good with history. When high school roll…

Sponsored Tiers on Vidme, Blog Changes, and Less YouTube

I know, I've been going through a lot of changes, but that comes with growth. Recently YouTube stopped monetizing and ranking videos they think should be censored. Unfortunately, this hurt a lot of people. They don't give people the option to make money on their censored videos, youtube simply makes them more difficult to find. YouTube doesn't just do this for NSFW videos, which personally I believe should be less available to kids, but for youtube to censor the political and opinion blogs ON EITHER SIDE makes me angry.

My videos, however, are not about politics. Most of the videos I create are probably around a rating where a 13 to 17 year old on up could be watching, which is good because you are supposed to be 13 on YouTube. Of course, we all know this doesn't happen. The videos I create are about horror stories that either I, or someone else, have written. Most of these stories are not in the NSFW category.

While I agree with freedom speech, I do believe in prote…

Changes Because of YouTube's New Anti-Free Speech Policies

YouTube has taken some draconian measures to fight bigotry and hate. While I agree that people who are racist are completely ignorant and rude, I also believe in free speech. I believe that no matter how crazy a person's ideals are, that person has the right to say so. This really isn't what this is all about.
YouTube has recently teamed up with a couple of organizations who pretty much have a one-sided view of what people should be watching and doing. YouTube is creating technology that automatically places movies into what I call "Purgatory" - they are neither in heaven of being viewed and monetized nor are they in hell when they are removed or demonetized. These videos cannot find a place with the already callous advertisers who are sometimes ok with certain movies and shows on tv that are far worse than anything seen on YouTube, but when it comes to the individuals on YouTube, these advertisers are not very friendly with certain types of content. To keep these ad…
