2014: The Year in Psychic Fail

It's that time of year again: Time to review some of the psychic predictions made for last year. Sylvia Browne is out of the picture now, but as Illuminutti has pointed out, she made one last set of predictions that turned out to be very wrong. How did the upstart psychics fare? Nikki, "Psychic to... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup: Ghost Sex, Celebrity Hauntings, and a Convenient Demon

This week, I'm going to labor the point that today's celebrities just can't seem to come up with anything original - even in the supernatural realm. In 2011, Lady Gaga reportedly believed she was being followed around by the ghost of a dude named Ryan. A few months later, she told Harper's Bazaar that the late... Continue Reading →

Will Sandy Hook Conspiranoia Go Mainstream?

As reported last week by Salon, relatively normal people like twentysomething New Yorker Brendan Hunt are now embracing alternative Sandy Hook theories. They're harassing interviewing witnesses, searching for other gunmen, and trying to tie the tragedy to secret societies and/or the military-industrial complex in any way possible. Hunt is by no means a self-proclaimed messiah... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup: Wannabe Rappers

I have seriously lost track of the number of YouTube vids and homemade documentaries that attempt to expose the supposed links between rap/hip-hop music and the Illuminati/Satanism. Run a YT search for "sold out to Illuminati" and you'll see what I mean - there are even vids explaining how 2Pac was assassinated because he wasn't... Continue Reading →

2012 Prediction Fail

The Winner The biggest fail is the late Terence McKenna's Timewave Zero prediction. First published in 1975, it was predicated on McKenna's complex novelty theory about the cyclical nature of time, and guesstimated that some kind of awesome singularity would occur in December 2012 (the date was based partly on his own calculations and partly...

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup: Time Travel Photos, and Other Worthless Things

Irish filmmaker George Clarke has found a "time traveler" in 1928 film footage of the premiere of Charlie Chaplin's The Circus. A woman in a fur coat approaches Grauman's Chinese Theater with a cell phone clutched to her ear! Well, sort of. You can't actually see what's in her hand. At all. But in Clarke's...

Conspiracy Monday: Review of Paul McCartney Really is Dead

Mockumentary, or documentary based on a hoax? The other day I watched a peculiar documentary titled Paul McCartney Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of George Harrison, directed by Joel Gilbert. Gilbert claims that on July 31, 2005, the office of Highway 61 Entertainment received a package with no return address, postmarked in London. It... Continue Reading →

Some Rather Pointless Hoaxes

No, Lindsay Lohan has not been poisoned. The search term "Lindsay Lohan Poisoned", which popped up on Google Trends and elsewhere two days ago, is a publicity stunt by Alex Jones. He's promoting an 11-minute video on the supposed dangers of ADHD medications, fluoridated water, vaccines, GMO food, etc. It's amazing how many errors one... Continue Reading →

Wow, this must be more embarrassing than Piranha II

James Cameron - and a lot of other people - have been duped by a wannabe scientist and pseudo-historian.One of the weekend guests on Coast to Coast AM was Dr. Charles Pellegrino.If the name is familiar, you may have seen him in the Discovery Channel documentary The Lost Tomb of Jesus, or read the 2007...
