Ever since I was a kid, I was intrigued by haunting, eerie, sometimes spooky, songs, but alas there was not much of that to be found on the AM dial, let alone commercial radio, so it ended up having to wait until I was older. Over the years, I've collected the odd track that set that kind of mood, and it's slowly built up into a special playlist. There have been several incarnations, this most recent being a Halloween-themed broadcast.

A journey into darkness, beyond your front door, into the stormy, windswept night, a shadowy realm where things are seldom what they seem, beyond the comfort of the familiar, into the Unknown…

The Spooky Door started with a 90-minute mix tape I made when I was in college. The idea was a collection of haunting mood music for my writing. It was originally dubbed "Eerie Mix" on the first tape, but it quickly advanced to a second tape, and evolved with every new song I came across that fit the bill, starting with stuff like the Doors, Orbital, Snowpony, and the "Songs in the Key of X" compilation, as well as gems by Beck, No Doubt, the Eels, Rob Zombie, Cake, the Specials, Primus, eventually building on with Powerman 5000, At the Drive-In, the Mars Volta, Tom Waits, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree, and later, soundtracks such as "Silent Hill" and "Hellsing" into a musical Winchester Mansion that gained the name "The Spooky Door". In its current form, it is either a massive playlist, or a 10-disc set I burned and sent a couple friends as a gift, but this is the podcast version, which I have loosely mixed into a kind of "old radio broadcast" format, its 10 episodes thematically divided in the same set as each of the previous mix discs, each episode timed to be released at intervals between now and Devil's Night (October 30), such that all will have been released by Halloween.

Enter ye the Spooky Door, and take a walk on the dark side...
IT'S SPOOOOKY

IN THERE!

Doors no longer lead to where they should, mismatched passages to places no longer familiar, leading deeper underground…

An eerie voyage upon a sea of mists, a speck floating on a thin film of the well of reality, floating precariously above murky depths few gaze long upon…

Behold the sweet Lady of Twylight— tattered shadows billow from her mast, in the sea fog’s shimmering light, ’tis an eerie spectre of the past. The derelict adrift in the Misty Main, shades of men seem to man the decks, a ghost ship that’s the traveler’s bane, on a journey to nowhere uncheck’d…

And now a reading of the full poem, by our special guest, Zecora!  :lol:

Enter ye the Spooky Door, step beyond the lantern’s beams, ancient dark corridors to explore where nothing’s what it seems. Don’t get lost upon thy way, the path of nightmares and dreams, in this old place, the games it can play. Skeleton key in hand, the silence screams.

The path looketh calm, but beware: tho all is silent in the Halls of the Dead, the machines that make nothing wait there until a blinking green light turneth red. Halls of locked doors, hidden danger; let not the lost child lead thee astray, to the wrath of the Phantom Stranger, ‘For we are many!’ the voices say.

Dead words drift across the page, the wisdom of some ancient sage, echoes of a long-forgotten age, but arcane verse doth set the stage:

Behold the sweet
Lady of Twylight— tattered shadows billow from her mast, in the sea fog’s shimmering light, ’tis an eerie spectre of the past. The derelict adrift in the Misty Main, shades of men seem to man the decks, a ghost ship that’s the traveler’s bane, on a journey to nowhere uncheck’d.

All aboard the Mystery Train, walk through the dimly-lit cars, away from the Twylight City, riding under fading, dying stars. All the passenger cars art empty and the destinations don’t connect, but this train doth run through every one; ’twill make the hair stand on thy neck.

Nameless armies prowleth abandoned places, incomprehensible and vast; no one returneth who hath seen their faces: thou’rt through the looking glass.

HAPPY NIGHTMARE NIGHT, EVERYPONY!

* BUMP! FOR NIGHTMARE NIGHT! *

...Also because sometime in the past year, Mevio decided to be a bunch of DMC tools, and tore down thousands of podcasts.  ::)

Fortunately, an old friend of mine lent me some of his FTP, so I could re-host the Spooky Door '11 episodes in time for Nightmare Night this year.  8)
