Back in March, I announced that I was starting a Youtube channel that would be connected with this blog. I did a poll to find a good name and most people liked the name Tales from the Tower (actually, the suggestion was Stories from the Tower, but I changed it a bit.) My idea was that I would film myself telling various of my stories in appropriate locations.
A lot of problems arose, specifically with finding a good video camera. In the meantime, I have decided to expand the concept. Yesterday, I posted about visiting an abandoned farmhouse near Seoul. So, here is the video I shot of it: the start of a series I call Creepy Korea. I like creepy things and now, with my wife, I am going to go out and find more haunted or spooky places to look around in.
As well, now that I think I have all the technical issues worked out, I will try to film some of my stories and post those as well, like my original idea. Stayed tuned.

It was kinda sad to see their family photos had been left behind.

Yeah, I’m hoping it’s only because the children all have their own copies. Still, there were smaller ones that you’d think would have had some value to someone. Odd.

Do you know anything about why the place was abandoned? It was difficult for me to hear what you were saying, the audio on my lap top is crap so if you mentioned it I missed it

I didn’t say although I was speculating My best guess is that it belonged to a retired couple who died and the house and its belongings were of such little resale value, their family just left it. Not sure, though.

What about researching public records? Just put out of curiosity

That’s an idea. I wonder how that sort of thing works in Korea. I should ask someone.

Is there a town hall, or a Realtor office?

I started to watch this earlier, and then I had to go. Came back, and it’s gone! Could be my computer. Anyway, it looked creepy all right and looked like it wasn’t so abandoned after all. It’s a great premise for a story! I don’t know if I’ll get to see the end or not…Hope so.

I hope you got to watch the rest of it. Maybe I will write a story about it. The only problem is that people tend to think some of my fictional pieces are real, so if I write a fictional piece about a real account, it might muddy the waters a bit. We’ll see. 🙂

Wow that was so creepy! Really! Plus, I heard your voice!

Yeah, although ironically, I think it’s creepier to watch than actually being there. Of course, if I had been alone, it might have been scarier. My wife loves creepy stuff like that and really wants to see a ghost. You’ll probably hear my voice a lot more as I make more videos. I didn’t like it at the beginning of this one though; It sounded weird.

Thanks. 🙂 I’d like to do more like this. We’ll see what I can find.
