New Place To Visit: "Museum of Mourning Art" Arlington Cemetary , Philadelphia

Just when I thought I knew everything about the Philly area. Bam! I found this! And I thought I would pass this along to you guys.
This museum is in Drexel Hill, PA at the Toppitzer Funeral Home, opened 1990. A huge estate that looks a little like Washington's Mt. Vernon home in VA. This is great for all you "oddities" fans.
There's a great article that is a "must read" that I will link you the website about this museum. Me? I'm planning a visit. This is something I most def have to see!

Happy Halloween! To All My GL Followers.

For all of my followers, Thank you! I'm still here! It's that it has been a very busy Summer. In more ways then one.  My Esty has taken the first place position before the blog.   So, soon I'm going to be combining  the two, sort of?
I have soooooo much to discuss here that it's not even funny. So bare with me. The shows, places to visit, people, and mainly the Ghosts!

Are We Really "Helping" The "Other Side"?

Look, I love GA! Believe me I do! For entertainment that is. I enjoy as of late watching the "Paranormal Challenge". But, and there's a big BUT.
Something came into my mind while watching. These "spirits" were once "us".  They were alive at one time. With a life history behind them. Whether it was good or bad.
As us "living beings".  We have our everyday lives to contend with. Working, hobbies, cooking, shopping, health, family, etc.  For me it seems rather ludicrous to continuously saying your doing an "investigation". On what? The same story, same spirits, the same-the same. You know what I mean. It's never changing.
Me being a believer in "the other side" and religious. I believe once a so called investigation is done. Sit down and figure out with your colleagues. Do we help this poor spirits, cast them away to the four winds, or do we just stop harassing these poor people, and really help them. What bothers me mostly with the EVP's, these spirits are struggling to communicate. And us as the living person really don't know them, personally. So hearing an investigator getting angry, demanding, yelling. It's very painful to watch. You have to think. Would you want all these people coming into your "spirit reality" doing this to you?  How can they stop you. Yes, you get a reaction. Like a scratch. It doesn't mean their bad (I know what's said about this, and I disagree). They just want you to stop.
I would like to see future investigations training people to really "help".  I mean not saying, "Oh, it's ok here. Just learn to live together".
In mostly these old mental institutions, hospitals, etc. We should really help them to get the peace they are looking for.

Looking Forward For The Travel Channel's "Paranormal Challenge"

No, not the Amazing Randy's "Paranormal Challenge". But, Zak Bagans "Paranormal Challenge" tomorrow on the Travel Channel (What happened to Nick and Aaron? Just asking). I know some of you guys probably saying, "Isn't this like Ghost Hunters Academy?".  Not really.  I believe what Zak's is trying to do is to show us that there are other groups out there.  That run the same investigating practices as GA. I hope not "over the top"? But, that wouldn't surprise me and would be very entertaining. Can't wait!
PS: Zak has a new clothing line coming out. He's one very busy man!

Paranormal Shows Slowdown? I Told You So!

Boy, like the new GEICO commercial. I've been living under-a-rock lately.
Just found out  "Paranormal State" is not coming back. I know, I know, how didn't she know about this? Well, I've been busy with what we call "life" I guess? Nothing wrong with that. But this really took me aback? I would never guess that they would leave so soon.
Lately I've notice that all these shows are coming back for each new season, longer and longer. Hey, when I heard "Most Haunted" left not long after they created a new "Paranormal Channel" in the UK. Maybe this was the beginning of a "sign"?
So, the reality is: "This was all a fad!". Oh, not for me. I've always been involved in the paranormal. All my entire life.
Let me go back in time a bit: When I first noticed that this was just a fad? Is when you noticed all these websites popping up all over the place (Including my own-I'll get to that in a second). Forums, magazines, paranormal groups, paranormal gear, paranormal newspapers, paranormal blogs, ghost tours, etc. They all seem to have something in common. They really don't have a clue about the paranormal. I mean a "real" clue. They just know what they have seen and read that has been started mainly by the shows. All of a sudden they became experts overnight. As time have been ticking by you see the "slow down". One by one, groups closing, websites stopped, less ghost tours, and so on. It's what I predicted (their just running off to "The next big thing!).
As for myself? I started this blog because of what I've been seeing. And it got me a little ticked off. So, I went on my own writing what was on my mind. And this was one of my first discussions on my blog a couple of years ago.  It came back full circle.
(I'll get back to writing about paranormal locations soon)
