Album Notes
Recorded live, this is an awesome collection of both original and traditional stories.
This recording includes live versions of the hillarious "It Ate My Sister" and the creepy "The Haunted Playground (Ellen's Revenge)" from Mark Binder's book, "It Ate My Sister".
- TV Deprogrammer is a modern tale of the never-ending battle between generations. It's man versus machine, techno vs. luddite.
- Old Scratch Nickels tells the fitting fate of a corrupt politician.
Classic stories include, "The Monkey's Paw" and "It Was A Dark and Stormy Night"
- The Monkey's Paw starts off as a sort of homage to Monty Python, but ends in heartbreak
- It Was A Dark and Stormy Night is a classic jump tale.
Plus, "The Death of Harry Potter" and "Sarah's Stake" which were originally released on the limited edition CD, "Dead at Knotty Oak"
- The Death of Harry Potter is not authorized by anyone affiliated with Harry Potter. It is, however, a fitting conclusion to the story.
- Sarah's Stake is a gut-wrenching vampire story about a young girl who is forced to... Well, you'll have to listen to the story to find out.

These are some of my favorite spooky and funny stories. The album was recorded live at the Horace Mann School and at the Knotty Oak school. (An earlier version of the Knotty Oak tracks were also released as a limited-edition CD).
