Ten Minutes: Carousel

Amusement parks have two vibes: fun and creepy. Crowds and daylight are the major contributing factors, but I’ve determined that the creepiest of vibes come from the carousel. It’s something about those horses. Their distressed, gnarled faces make it look like they were frozen midway through a broken back. And the music? What is that? Not a discernible song in the bunch. Just creepy circus tunes played on an organ, which happens to be among the most eerie of instruments. Plus, nobody should ever feel totally comfortable surrounded by that many mirrors and exposed light bulbs.
