Legend of Charman

The Youtube Revolution is breaking down barriers everywhere. Not only can anyone with a Mac and video camera shoot films of astounding quality, but now they can get instant worldwide distribution. What a great age in which we live!

For further proof of our good fortune, and the talent which can emerge without having to go through the arrogant gatekeepers of old, check out this work by some kids from Happy Valley School:

Perhaps someone can shed some light on this for me. Growing up in Ojai, I was terrified of The Char Man (especially when visiting my friend on Creek Road!!) But then when I got older I could have sworn that I heard or read that this was simply an urban legend -and many small towns had their own Char Man. I remember feeling quite disallusioned! LOL

This post had me looking for info on the net and a quick search doesn't seem to bare this out. Is this really a local, Ojai legend??

I meant to ask if this was a legend EXCLUSIVE to Ojai...
