It's fun, great stories, and books/mags you can order, all at the same time. I love these guys. They give you the scoop on everything that is out there. Whether it's about hauntings, abandon locations, the odd and the weird is their speciality. What I like is that they also include stories that are sent to them by fans. Join the message board (or just take a look at the discussions). No stone unturned.
So please during the holidays check this site out. You wont be disappointed.
For your taste buds to start you off on your way (check the individual links):
"Happy Holidays To You All!" Going on a little vaca. I'll be on and off the next coming week. Enjoy!

At night it's very dead around there, just an occasional deer roaming through. About six years ago me and my husband would go to dinner and pass through that particular location. One day we had to stop at the red light. I could see on the side view mirror (as we slowed down to the light) what looked like a small woman dressed in a old style jogging suit in a white mist. What freak me out is that the "woman" was slowly "gliding" towards my door with a hand reached out. The light changed and as we are going "It" disappeared from my side view. My heart was beating like a drum. Didn't talk to anyone about this other then my husband.
About a year later. My son who just starting driving. He would go out with friends and drive them home. Always around 2 to 4 in the morning. This one particular night he drove one friend home who lived on the other side of the "haunted" location. As they turn on that corner he said to my son, "Did you see that little kid standing there?". My son turned to look and he saw a white mist of a small child. The two were so scared. That night my son told me the story. I asked him where did this happened? It was the same place. So I told him about my story. His friend came over the next day. What a long discussion that was. Haven't seen anything since till about a week ago.
Me and my husband were coming back late from my son's apartment. As we came close to the same intersection (which by the way, a new light was installed). I saw a solid white mist cross the street and disappeared. Right under the street lamp post. I didn't tell my son yet about this new haunting.
*I did ask around if there were any stories of a haunting exist. It turned up blank. Very strange!

But it does look like "something" is going on there. What is the difference between a "dark mass" and a "dark shadow"? I'm throwing this out there to my investigator friends. What kind of energy does a dark mass hold? This really intrigues me! I'm going to check this out a little further in the future.

Do something different this year and have a "Nightmare Before Christmas Party". Make sure you include the songs from the film to play in the background. Then read the Christmas Carol for your guests. Find out some haunted places in your neighborhood. And take your guests for a personal ghost tour (if it's not too cold). Include "Midnight" Hot Chocolate. Don't forget the black candles. Have fun! And be different!

Here's a story for you:
There's a building in Savannah, GA that states that it's a "major ghost portal". C Savannah Building was built around the 1860's. But it seems it was built on top of 20,000 ancient graves. And it was a sort of port of call for slaves for auction. The list goes on from there. Do I think it's a portal? Not sure! Just more haunted then the usual locations. Which would not be a surprise due to the age of the building and the history of the city itself. See what I mean?

Clip from the movie:

The tragedy doesn't stop there when they are beset by vengeful spirits from another realm in this new chiller by the director and writer of Saw and by the producers of Paranormal Activity. The film stars Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey and Patrick Wilson."

Manhattan was first controlled by the Dutch. And Peter Stuyvesant was the leader of this new colony as commander of the Dutch West India Colony as the Bowery area was called in 1651. He lived in the area for 25 years which during that time he traveled the world. In the process he has lost a leg. He wore a wooden leg with silver studs.
The St. Mark's Church is located on 10th St. and Second Ave. in the East Village. Mr. Stuyvesant is buried there in a vault. Many people who visit or attend the church say they can hear the obvious sound of a "peg leg" all throughout the church. They also stated that they see "shadows" and "movements" within the church. What's spookier even passersby say they can see this through the church windows from outside. And the church bells have run at weird times with the presence of a "ghost". People say that the ghost of "Peg Leg Pete" has been seen since 1672, from the time of his death.

So for you guys that are in the cold weather climate, like me. Watch this movie after going out holiday shopping with a big bowl of buttered popcorn. Put on your slippers and a throw. And enjoy! Heck, buy it as a gift for someone who like's the paranormal.
And for those who want to get an idea what the story is about? I'm not gonna tell ya! It would spoil the whole atmosphere of the mystery, spooky, strange little tale.

Ghost Adventures Always Put A Smile To My Face! Plus: Free Demo Of "Ghost Trick:Phantom Detective" By Nintendo DS
By creating this new atmosphere we get to know the boys much better. More approachable. They laugh, joke, get serious, mad, upset in the right contexts of the particular location their investigating.
I always look forward to the next show. Always wonder what cast of characters they'll come across next. It's so funny when some of these women who give the tours have a huge Zac crush. Or Aaron's "scared look". And Nick "scared toughness" (you know he's scared out of his mind). They do change it up quite a bit that it doesn't become stale. Can't wait for next season.
Here's the link for the free demo of "Ghost Trick:Phantom Detective"

Me and others that have had "personal experience" always beg to differ on this issue. But I try to be fair and understand how a skeptic would see all this. In my last post I explained how a "cobweb feeling" can be created. So this really can't be dismissed. This all comes under the word "debunk". But let's be fair. How many investigators really sit down and do "extreme" debunking. Somethings are seen as proof , such as "knocking" or "shadows". To be real. Of course this can be debunked. Example knocking can be the house settling (each house is different). I believe this should be thrown out. It should be only counted as proof if it correlates to questions being asked. Shadows? Each of us have different eye sights with different eye problems (such as "floaters"). Focus and matrixing is another issue. And should not be dismissed either.
Some of you will say, "Gee, almost "everything" will be thrown out!". No, just smarter investigating is needed to be done. The bad news is: You'll probably walk out more times then you wish for. Empty handed.
It always comes do to the "club" of people, like myself that had a "personal experience" to say they believe. And I truly understand why skeptics, don't.

The investigation seemed a little chaotic at first. That's very typical for first-time investigators. They tend to talk too much. Maybe the nervousness of the unknown.
As for the Rhodes House? It wasn't really clear to why is this house haunted at all? I believe only one person die there. That's not usual at the time when it was common for people to die at home. There really isn't much out there written about the place being haunted. As for Amy and Kris having that feeling of spiderwebs on them. Sometimes that's "static" if a place is very dry. You know, like a rubbing a balloon and then waving it over your arms it causes the hairs on your arms to rise. Steve and Tango didn't feel anything because they were more covered up then the girls.
It seems that GH tends to go back to Atlanta do another investigation. And the HW's are going to be invited, again! Maybe, who knows? The HW's may want to start a paranormal group of their own (hope not!).
PS: Did Jason say "sweetheart" to the woman at the reveal? I'm not sure if I heard that right.

My question is: If these "experiences" become more frequent. Does this help for a person to become a "sensitive" or further, a "psychic"? And can this really be controlled? Another words, you can have these experiences during regular waking hours? I believe this can be true. I think people that learn how to meditate have the right idea. Do they too get these same experience as a person in twilight sleep?
For me, many of my premonitions happens during total deep sleep. Others during twilight. I'm passing along an article I found interesting. I hope that this can help those who are wondering the same way about this phenomenon.

During the holiday weekend I saw a Youtube of a new online TV show called Anomaly 3D TV. Personally I'm not a big fan of 3D (*cough* and that's a long time). Everything lately is 3D, I mean everything. As for the paranormal? Would it help us "see" an apparition better ? Or maybe it can't be caught at all in 3D? Or is this just another gimmick?
What about the "equipment"? What changes has to be done. And how does that change paranormal investigations?
Get your 3D glasses ready: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsKJmdlvOuM

Here's a loaded question I'm going to throw out to all you paranormal investigators. Why is it that an apparition can "change" from white to dark? Or, just white or dark? Never really could understand that? In my lifetime I mainly seen dark shadows to a clear "color" semi apparitions. But it still basically, dark.
This picture was taken by the Cheshire Paranormal Society. They believe it's the ghost of Squire Youge a person very known to the area a couple of hundred years ago.

It's seems they saw blood everywhere, a scalp, and worse.
It turned out that a movie was filmed there called "New Terminal Hotel"(straight to DVD). The owner decided to "keep it" in the same condition that it was in during the filming. The owner said the room stayed that way due to the fact that the hotel is known to be "haunted" (I personally never heard of it). He calls it his "Scare Room" for his Scare Tours that take place at the hotel.
The bottom line: The Police Chief was not amused.

Due to the fact that the economy is tight. This is the easiest way to make your very own, Spirit Box! You can buy the components at Radio Shack or online.
Personally, I find this to be too much like Ham Radio, or a Baby Monitor. It picks up everything!
Paranormal investigators believed they solved a 127 year old murder.

What's funny to me is...I didn't really care for the first one! The main reason is. Once all the spoilers come out. It's no fun anymore. Which seems a little strange? It's like...I would hear about a new movie that would be coming out that I would like to see. And I get some "clues" to what I'm going to see. And it's still a surprises me! But with this movie. It seems to be totally ruined once you know what the storyline is. Never had an experience like that before.
Not in a rush to see this one either.
Thursday, November 18, 2010
I'm trying to understand why all the "guests" to their show? And why these particular people? I think there are more interesting people, out there, to bring on the show. Don't you think? Who's next? It would be different if they bought in an actual fan in to join them.
Is this for ratings? Could be? But that would look a little like a "red flag" to me.
Or maybe their just plain bored! I could see that. Last night they really looked "real" tired during their investigating.

Here in the Philly area is there's a place called Laurel Hill Cemetery. There are all sorts of macabre tours and stuff going on in there. You want to have a party or a wedding, in a cemetery? Come on! Really! I love when there's a street festival in Philly. Their they are (the people from LHC) with brochures and other items on their table display. It seems so unreal to me. Remember the people who are buried there paid a pretty penny to have their eternal peace. It's just too creepy for me!

So why now does the Catholic Church want "more" priests involved in exorcism? Is it all the paranormal shows, paranormal groups visiting sites (doing too much provoking), all the claims of people seeing ghosts? Or is it because 2012 is just around the bend? (Or maybe they know something we don't?)
What gets me is that not many people are joining the church to become priests and nuns anymore! And maybe this is being done to make it more appealing to the young. Now that would be creepy!

So here it goes: Christies of London famous auction house is auctioning the first Apple Computer that were sold back in 1976. This is when they were just a fledgling company running from Steve Jobs parents house. Back then it was called Apple 1. The "computer" is being auctioned at $161,600. But here's the kicker!
Back in 1976 the "original" price as for the Apple 1 was, ready for this: Exactly $666.66. Unbelievable isn't it! So was this a future pact with devil? Some of you guys are probably wondering the same thing I thought. What an "odd" price? Did they really pick this price at random? Anyway a year later in 1977 they dropped the price to $475.00.
Let me know what you guys think?

Now you may ask, "What does this have to do with the paranormal?". First of all, many of you know that there is a belief that a spirit may follow an "object". If this is true. Then this shop must be big-time haunted! For example. In last night's show there was a woman that requested to purchase an antique morticians table. They went to her home to bring it over for her. Her house was filled with bizarre equipment and other items. Another thing I found funny, the owner himself doesn't like to go down to his own basement at the shop. I wonder why? *wink* At one point in the show. The owners of the shop were thinking of buying an antique coffin. Interesting isn't it.
For me I really enjoyed the show. It made me laugh and gave me back good memories. In a funny sort of way.
Check out the videos. See it for yourself:

Last night on Ghost Hunters they were at Fort William Henry. They were doing the usual tour before investigating. I was just thinking to myself, "I hope they don't have a "haunted" gift shop!". And there it came! The tour guide said here's the gift shop! But to make me laugh even more was he said: But we call it a "Sutler Shop". I almost fell of my chair. Do they know this joke about the gift shops and the paranormal? Just kidding!
By the way. This gift shop was huge. The claims are that people can hear footsteps all over on top of the Gift Shop. Oh I mean Sutler Shop. If you notice, it's a drop ceiling which for me seems to be a problem to really to get an idea what the real source of the sound is.
I'm just going to throw this one out to you guys! Why is it that the gift shops "always" seem to be haunted? What was the location originally before it was turned into one? Just wondering.
Oh? And a warning to all you paranormal investigators out there. When Jason and Grant were checking out the inside of the cannons to see if there are any critters housing in them. The found that each and every one had a bees nest in them. Just to give a head's up on that.

A 43% increase of this phenomenon in the last four years. Usually a person will see on their ID caller "withheld number" or "0000000000" (Personally, I have seen this on my own phone. And it wasn't paranormal).
Statistics is showing that most hauntings are "sound". While only 20% is actual "sightings" and 15% is "smell".
Tesco Mobile UK did a study that showed a 70% upsurge of paranormal evidence using mobile phones. They recommended that you should put your phone on the highest quality resolution setting and use the recorder.
The only thing I'm wondering? What's the best cell phone on the market to use for this purpose? I think some research has to been done in this area.
There's some Youtube's out there showing EVP's that some people have been picking up with the cell phones
(Some are not the best quality. But you guys should check it out just the same).

Now that I got that off my chest. For those who don't know about Dark Shadows: It was a TV soap opera in the late '60s based on vampires, ghosts and witches. It ran a good course. A movie was made in the early '70s. But didn't do well at the box office. The character Barnabas Collins was popular as any rock star of the time. So I could understand why JD would love to play this role. Hope they don't make it into a musical.

DeNiro will play a world renown psychic. And Weaver will plays the part of a paranormal researcher out to debunk him.
The focus of the film by the director is "...how the brain does not give a true picture of reality". Hmmm, very intriguing!
But by the way? What's with all these films about psychics lately? Just asking!
Wednesday, November 3, 2010
What makes this story interesting is that they were contacted by email from A&E. And the group's website was only up for 3 months at the time? Gee, they were lucky!

Paranormal State: Well they went where now one tread before. Katrina was on a bed with her "black lace bra" on. For all the world to see. This was too lure a spirit to join her. I thought that was a bit much. What's next? *shutter*
GA: Love them. But something this pass Friday made me start to think? When Aaron heard the piano tinkle. And they showed us that the piano doesn't work at all. I paused for a moment...what if they have discussions how they would "talk" or "act" on camera ahead of time. Then later edited in the missing "sound" or "object" in? Hate to think this way. But we do live in the time of photoshop and other editing gadgets.
Ghost Lab: This theory that I have with GA holds for them too. For instance, there was a hallway that they were looking down for a little girl. As they pan the camera we see a lot of objects down that end...and then we see a flash of a little girl. It didn't look right to me. And is it me that they always finding things? All the time? I don't think their equipment is any different then what's out there already. They all buy it from the same vendors.
Remember, this is all my own opinion. Just wonder if there are others out there that thinking the same thing?

For me I think a building built or reused (not a haunted location) for this sole purpose is fine. To make it year round would be something of a treat for family and friends to enjoy.

First, I found out the Dustin Pari is going to be on a new show called "Paranormal Highway". I don't have any information about it. It was heard about during a recent convention.
Second, Brandy Green left? Or was fired from GHI. The why and when? I have no clue. But it did happen. As to do with Robb? I don't think he's coming back either? That was heard through the grapevine
Third, Britt Griffith was fired by Syfy. That was based on a recent radio broadcast. That he was quoted saying, "let's say" politically wrong phases. The paranormal community is at odds with one another on this (many of them we know). I believe he was just working on, recently, the new GHI shows to come.
And the most funny news. Jason and Grant (but for a good cause) are going to be on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" Oct. 29th.
If you guys heard anything else? Let me know.

I can't even begin to write to stories about his huge red brick wroth iron hotel, But I am going to recommend you to read the blog called chelseahotelblog.com. It's fascinating. So many ghost stories. I'm just surprised why investigators haven't checked this one out yet. But then in the other hand. It's a very lively place. For so many spirits.
A "must read".
Article about the sale.

But there is an actual story behind the title. As in the movie it's based on a woman (in the movie "women") who murder old men. The "real" story is about Amy Archer-Gilligan who ran a nursing home in Newington, Conn. The murders happened between 1910-17. Authorities believed it was a total of 48 people to be exact. The name of the facility was "Sister Amy's Nursing Home for the Elderly". The story went nation wide due to an articles written by The Hartford Courant starting May 9, 1916. The articles were called "Murder Factory".
On June 18, 1917 she was found guilty and declared insane.

Last night's new season show was in Gettysburg. Which if anyone of you remember this was the place where the Klinge brothers of Everyday Paranormal. Many years ago. Caught on camera a complete regiment of soldiers on video. I've seen this video before. To me it looks like a "real" group of people marching. Solid. As they explain "One moment their were there. The next their were not". Check it out if if have a chance.
I always had a problem watching these guys. They talk about a electronic "net" that they place over a building? Also that they have a "special" EVP recorder? Meaning it's recording in real time. So you can hear a "voice" speaking to you right then and there answering you back.
As it's stated on the Discovery Channel website, they use the "world's most sophisticated equipment". This is just to tell us that they are the best of the best out there right now. So we have to believe everything we see is fact. On this particular show. They hit jackpot! A very clear looking shadow person. Class A EVP's, only. They never seem to walkaway empty handed. I myself am not into investigating. But I do understand that this is not the case for paranormal investigators. Usually you would come back empty handed.
I really hope that "Extreme Paranormal" doesn't come back. That would be way too much!

This is the trailer they had to pull out of a lot of theaters due to complaints. Probably from parents. I saw the first one. To me personally, it wasn't that scary. Maybe because of all the hype. It's a different director this time (maybe more professional). I'll wait for it to come out on Netflix. Or read the reviews first before going.
Coming out this Friday.
Monday, October 18, 2010
If any of you have watched the start of the new season of "Paranormal State" yesterday. You would know what I'm talking about.
The family did look very concern about this entity that is living in their home. Frighting their children and themselves out the door. Just to hear Ryan say (nothing against him) at the end of the investigation "Pukwudgies" was so funny. And the homeowners faces were golden. They were so stone faced. I think it's just out of confusion and just plain stunned. I can see it in their eyes, "This is what is haunting our home?". I can't get into the whole story. But it's all based on American Indian folklore. Mostly around the area of Cape Cod, MA. Hairy midget creatures with claws.
Also another controversy will come up based on this particular episode. A la "Collargate" fame of GH. Remember that Halloween Special? Chad was in the basement when he said he felt a scratch on his leg. It did showed up on camera that you can see the back of his shirt being "tugged", hard, around the sametime. If you missed it. Give it time. It will show up on Youtube, trust me. I'll keep you posted.

It is the 4th largest intacted quarantine station in the world.
Believe it or not. This hospital is located on one side of the Philadelphia International Airport. On the opposite side is Ft. Mifflin.
This Saturday, Oct. 16th from 6 to 12 midnight will be the first ever paranormal investigation of the place. Only to the first 50 who donate $50.00 be able to join the members of The PAST paranormal group.
Let's see what these guys find. Should be interesting with all the history.

Here's the definition:
"a ghostly double of a living person that haunts its living counterpart"
"Doppelgängers are often perceived as a sinister form of bilocation and generally regarded as harbingers of bad luck. In some traditions, a doppelgänger seen by a person's friends or relatives portends illness or danger, while seeing one's own doppelgänger is an omen of death."
How many of us were told by someone. That they have just seen "you" somewhere else? Creepy huh? What I find even more unnerving is the very thought of coming face to face with you own self. *shutter*
Here's a strange website to find your doppelganger:
Friday, October 8, 2010
I'm not going into who I am talking about (not yet). There is a well known paranormal group that have been around "longer" then the other usual ones you hear about (you know, on TV). That being said. They are very scientific about all their findings. A matter of fact. You never read about the "story" of any of the so call hauntings on their website. You know, the history of the hauntings. They basically just write about the "data". Are they "true" scientist? No, not at all (particularly after you read their bios). And that's what causes a big problem to all their data they obtain.
Now to the shop owners. Are some shops calling paranormal investigators to come in a check out to see if their place is haunted? Yes, more now then ever before due to the economy. If it brings money in, sure come on down! As for my "story" that I wanted to write about? I called up this particular shop to find out "the story" behind the so call hauntings she wrote about on her website. To my surprise...she had none! She said it's based on what the investigators told her (about her shop being haunted). Not from her own experience which again...was none. Huh? Why did this very well known group go in to do an investigation in the first place? Very interesting!
Who contacted who? Is what I'm wondering about? Did the paranormal group called her because of the age of her shop and the kind of merchandise she handles could "cause" a haunting? So hey, let's call her if she would let us come in with all our equipment to see if her shop is "haunted". I personal think this is so wrong in more was then one.
I personally believe that a person or client should call the investigators first. And that there should be a series of stories (experiences) connected to the house or building before you start an investigation. All this data that this group obtained. For me at least for this case. I deem unusable information.
