The Legend of Spooksy: Part 1

So, I was screwing around on the internet the other day, and I found this video

Just some crazy crackhead right? That’s what I thought too, but I had some time, so I started googling. It turns out, this guy actually went missing. I found this in a public records archive from around the date of the video.

Here’s another video he posted about a week before he disappeared talking about going back to the house.

And another one from two days before he was reported missing.

I guess he took pictures of the drawings he talked about, I found these on an iCloud account (don’t ask how I got in)

This has got to be one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen. I mean, it’s got to be a hoax right? Like this kind of stuff doesn’t really happen. But MAYBE, that’s exactly how things like this happen. Because we don’t want to believe that they are real. I mean, the guy said himself he went to get help and basically got ignored. Maybe he just filed the missing person’s report himself as a joke to get back at the police for not taking him seriously? I dunno, but I’m never going hiking again.

  1. That was an interesting shift. I have come to expect morbid humor from Spooksy, but instead you went full-on creepy. Well done. I would be particularly interested in hearing more about what went into the audio track. I hear a lot of different sounds layered in the background which make it very atmospheric and mysterious.

    1. So for the song I wrote a little one minute creepy riff, performed it on an acoustic guitar, recorded it in audacity, and added a bit of echo and delay for extra creepyness. I had originally intended it to be just guitar, but it just didn’t feel full enough, so I headed over to freesounds.org and found a light rain track, a creaky attic door, and some people whispering in an echoey room. I like the light rain because it gave me that sitting at home on a cold grey rainy day vibe. The attic door I found while looking some something wood creaky, I liked that big crashes of the springs because it almost acted as a percussion track for the song. I like to use things in ways they’re not intended, so the whispering voices were fun to play with. It’s actually a happy conversation about a recipe for shallot sauce. After all was said and done, I was listening to the track and it sounded like the female was saying “Sally Sauce.” I immediately thought that could have been a Spooksy recipe, so it became the title of the song. It also gave a totally different feel to that happy conversation about a recipe.
