| So I've seen lots of people mention ideas for Tower TV over the years in various forms, and usually they don't ever get the chance to incorporate these ideas into any of their stories. So I was thinking "Why not have a place for people to submit scripts or descriptions of commercials and programming blocks for Tower TV? Sorta like a Faces, Strange and Secret deal. Since there are endless amounts of channels, and endless amounts of eldritch fuckery, there is almost no limit to what can be submitted to it.
Maybe even art can be submitted to it, whatever, ya know?
Since I'm kinda busy and not very responsible, I'm hoping someone will take this off my hands and come up with a snazzy tumblr or website or some kinda doohickey for this. Please? I'll support in any way I can!

| A documentary that focuses on real and fictional serial killers (could be both in-and-out of universe to make the characters go "Wait, what? But that never happened!"). Provides interviews with how the killers go on about their daily life, what happens when they get caught/life in prison, and stuff like that. Or really, it could be a reality television series or something. "Undercover Killer"
Extreme weather alerts for disasters that either haven't happened yet, aren't real, or just bizarre.
Going off of that, Breaking News alerts that have occurred in the past/present/future, but with distorted things about them. If you've read that SCP about the Ronald Reagan tape, that's kind of along the lines of what'd be featured.
A show that deliberately pokes fun at the lives of the one that's watching it. Have a Runner watching the show? It's going to taunt them about how Running is futile and show that something bad is about to happen to them.

| Oh... Well I guess my Richard Clay show idea that was posted in the Wooden Girl thread should be moved here.
As for the title of the Tower TV blog how about: Nostalgia of the Sick and Frightening

| I already named it by my suggestion by the time I saw yours, so I made yours the url.
Edit: Looking back I probably should have made it a tumblr like Cute suggested.
Edit 2: I changed it to Magi's http://nostalgiaofthesickandfrightening.blogspot.com/

|Whichever one gets the job done and serves its purpose the best, I'm up for. Now, we need people to submit stories!|

| I was going to suggest a motivational speaker segment hosted by The Archangel in the guise of reverend Llamellik.
"Do you ever get the feeling that life is meaningless and you should just give up and die. Well that feeling is correct. Start chugging those meds."
Or something akin to that blackmail monty python sketch but handled more maliciously and hosted by The Blind Man and The Black Dog.

| Does anyone know how to add those box link things on an Awesome Inc. blog?
Oro a blog in general?
|Posted by: alliterator Jan 4 2014, 12:29 AM|
|What "box link things"? Quote boxes? I don't think you can - you can indent paragraphs, but I don't think you can put things on boxes unless you know the HTML code for that.|

Um... I don't think that was what I was thinking.
I was talking about the buttons that lead to the Submit A Creepypsta thread, the wiki, and that page for Stories/Authors, but I didn't have a good name for it so I used a bunch of random words to describe it.
|Posted by: WereMagi Jan 4 2014, 03:09 AM|
I'd help, but you rushed off without waiting and all and started it yourself. -3-
|Posted by: alliterator Jan 4 2014, 04:37 AM|
| Okay, here you go:
Go to the Pages menu on Blogger.
Create a New Page.
Fill it with stuff.
Go to the Layout and reposition the Pages menu where you want it.

|Thanks alliterator. http://nostalgiaofthesickandfrightening.blogspot.com/|

This isn't really a creepypasta but I figured I'd add it anyway.
|Posted by: alliterator Jan 8 2014, 10:15 PM|
| Here's a creepypasta I wrote for Terror Tortellini that was never published. It's not about a TV show, though, but a movie, so I don't know if it will work for the blog.

|If a post that was only meant to provide a link to a wiki counts, this sure as hell does - http://nostalgiaofthesickandfrightening.blogspot.com/2014/01/number-13.html|

| A concept from my roleplaying wiki adapted into a creepypasta featuring what could be described as a Tower TV show.
|Posted by: NⓍFⓍurthWall Jan 9 2014, 05:29 AM|
| That was very well done.
|Posted by: ReynardMalone Mar 30 2014, 05:45 PM|
| Many apologies if I overlooked something that says it's best to leave old threads alone, but I really wanted to contribute a little something to Tower TV.
So...submitting for hopeful approval.
Eat Your Heart Out
Again. Apologies for reviving a really old topic, but I'd like to see what people think..

This reminds me of a more realistic version of http://thefearmythos.wikia.com/wiki/Cooking_with_Richard_H._Clay
|Posted by: ReynardMalone Mar 30 2014, 09:00 PM|
| Oh crap. I forgot about Cooking with Richard Clay! ;__;
Sorry for treading on old ground, guys. :C
|Posted by: Transgression Mar 30 2014, 09:22 PM|
Dude it's fine. If anything this show could be considered as an in-universe precursor to Cooking with Richard Clay.
|Posted by: proxiehunter Mar 30 2014, 09:28 PM|
I doubt Cooking with Richard Clay would be their only cooking show and it definitely works.

| So, I apologize for what I’m about to request. I fully realize that the admin staff here are under NO SUCH obligation. However, I sure that we’d all like a sense of quality in publically viewable Fear Mythos pieces and so I’m going out on a limb here.
So…fingers crossed please don’t pummel me…can somebody apply these minor editing things I overlooked to the ‘Eat Your Heart Post’ on the Channels, Static, Flickering blog? Below is a list of some serious snafus that I’d greatly appreciate anybody assistance in correcting:
Line 24 – ‘Torque’ should be ‘Toque’.
Line 27 – There should be a ‘that’ before the ‘definitely’. Therefore, it should read ‘men and women THAT definitely had their fair share of meat on their bones.
Line 34 – ‘Louie’ should be ‘Louis’. Don’t know how that slipped by me.
Line 61 – Once again, there is a ‘Louie’ where a ‘Louis’ should be. Oh my god. This is terrible. >_<
Line 67 – It reads Robert ‘stammed’. It should read: ‘Robert stammered’.
And, after double checking a few extra times, that’s pretty much everything that requires a small edit.
Reiterating, I realize that nobody is under NO SUCH OBLIGIATION to do me this solid, but I’d really appreciate it. If nobody is willing, I’ll accept the fact that I didn’t check my work as thoroughly as I should have and live with it. ._.;;
Thank you for your time and sorry for bothering you.
Please don't pummel me
