Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Man, the campaign trail is hot as we work to get the word out we’re up for a Rondo Award right now. Eager to get as many votes as possible, we’re emailin’ ol’ amigos, hittin’ folks up on every social media platform we can think of, and even postin’ ads on popular message boards. But in all the hustlin’ we’ve been doin’, we were reminded of a few tactics we’d been meanin’ to try for helpin’ spread the word ’bout our show to horror fans still in the dark to our existence.

Willin’ to give almost anythin’ a shot for more exposure, one crazy idea we finally saw through is uploadin’ our vids to one of ’em skin streamin’ sites we always hear folks referrin’ to whenever they need some special “alone time.” We ain’t gonna say which site, mind ya, ’cause that’s not the point of this week’s post (and the fact we might be a little bit ashamed).

No sir, the reason we’re even botherin’ to tell y’all ’bout this is ’cause of the laughable non-sense we’ve been called down for by the site’s administrators. Without knowin’ if they’re real keyboard slappers or data scannin’ bots, this particular site we used for a test drive is a harsher censor than YouTube. Like YouTube, this site allows anyone to create an account and upload content for all to enjoy. We haven’t figured out if there’s anyway to make a buck off every time an ad for explodin’ dicks or bang buddy datin’ loops beside our videos yet, but we’re only focusin’ on how much attention this could swing toward the show right now. We mean, come on, our vid’s thumbnails are sure to stick out like a soar thumb in somebody’s search for whatever floats their boat, and ‘fore we know it, we’ll have curios new fans checkin’ our stuff out ‘tween turn ons.

Anyway, the funny thing is we all know how sensitive YouTube can be at times, and how they’ll shut yer stuff down without hesitation at the slightest transgression ‘gainst their policies. Copyrighted sounds, images, too much skin on skin action, cruel acts of violence, and crybaby yahoos bitchin’ ’bout rights to some public domain commercial from forever ago can all be used as strikes ‘gainst ya. Sometimes it’s a person puttin’ eyeballs on yer stuff to flag it for these things, sometimes it’s a digital demonoid whose only purpose is to suck all the fun outta life. But whichever it is, it somehow knows how to decipher cinema from home shot snuff. Ya upload a review of somethin’ like Toolbox Murders 2 or Frankenhooker, YouTube recognizes this footage as a product from Hollywood and not some Faces of Death fan video. We’re guessin’ they have all these movies archived in their databanks for their computers to identify as legal properties, a service this particular skin site doesn’t seem to have.

After uploadin’ our first season (10 episodes that’ve been happily playin’ on YouTube since 2014 without a hitch), we were automatically slapped with sassin’ messages statin’ some of our reviews were deemed unfit and removed without any option to argue back like folks always do on YouTube. The two in question were Deadgirl (S1E1) and The Asphyx (S1E2). Seems this particular site can’t tell the difference ‘tween movies and real life, so it bucked Deadgirl out for involvin’ “unwillin’ participants in a sexual act” and The Asphyx for “animal cruelty.” If ya seen the movies or our reviews, then ya know they’re right, but in the wrong context. Deadgirl’s an unwillin’ sex partner, ’cause she’s a feral zombie chained in a basement. A guinea pig is killed in an experiment in The Asphyx but gains immortality as a result. And again, they’re just movies we’re talkin’ ’bout. Obviously, none of it’s real!

We just find the whole thing funny and thought y’all might too. Lotta folks think of skin sites as these cyber cesspools of immoral filth corruptin’ the minds of the innocent, but there’s even things YouTube will play these sites want no part of! As for the rest of our season, they’re still up and runnin’ on this particular site, but it may just be a matter of time ‘fore someone or somethin’ wrongly flags the kill counts in ’em for snuff.

    I know Deadwest those folks from Youtube and the copyright bull shittery are getting alot of Youtubers lately. I call those aholes the copyrights police, I said to one Youtuber on this Youtube site called wolf entertainment since he has trouble reviewing episodes of the twilight zone and are you afraid of the dark without getting attacked by copyrights and when he was reviewing hereditary he mention the copyrights police on his video. You know it sounds crazy I thinks those could be ideas for new characters for your show based on and making fun of the copyrights BS. I mean Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman poked fun at big movie studios in the toxic avenger 3 during that ma and pa video store attack at the beginning. What do you think the copyrights police sound like they could exist on your show as future characters.
