Is There Anything Creepier...

... than an empty carnival?

This isn't even that creepy and it still bugs me out. It was even worse on the day I took it. It was an overcast summer day and this was set up in the parking lot of Eastpoint Mall (Dundalk Represent!). The wind was starting to pick up because a storm was rolling in.

I snapped this picture and then got the hell out of there. I figured if I stuck around I would hear soft, tinkly piano music or the calliope would start up and the merry-go-round would begin moving by itself. Or even worse, I would have heard a chorus of children recite a nursery rhyme really slowly. Ooooooooooooh!!

This shit always gets me. It reminds me of Something Wicked This Way Comes, which was always coming on the Disney Channel when I was a little kid. I don't know what it was about but it looked like some carnival would roll into town and then an evil man with a beard and a top hat would do spooky shit to the kids.

They would always advertise it for Friday nights but I never tuned in. I didn't want to have a heart attack at the age of 10.

Anyway, enjoy my gorgeous art. You deserve it.


  1. I'd like to thank whoever thought this post was "interesting." I'm going to pretend you were talking about my weird photo and not my weird fixation with creepy carnivals.

  2. I HATE when they sing creepy nursery rhymes in movies. Scares the bee-jesus out of me.

  3. Its creepy as fuck. It doesn't even have to be a scary movie and if they have that in there it bugs me out.
