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?

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.

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).

Again I wish you all Good Luck on your up coming premire!

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!

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 all you Stephen King fans. This story was co-written by him and Jackson.
