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 →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup: Detroit Bigfoot & a Possessed Mongoose

The tale of Gef, the talking mongoose, is by far one of the weirdest and stupidest incidents in the history of the paranormal. In the summer of 1931, a remote farmhouse on the Isle of Man was invaded by what initially seemed to be a pest animal. James Irving, who lived in the farmhouse with... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

Come, Armageddon, come. The latest plank in the New World Order platform: Post offices! One man has the courage to expose their illegal secret rooms and their "indoctrinated multicultural post office workers", and to ask the really important questions, like "What role do Freemasons undertake in the U.S. Post Office?". Another plank: Avatar, with its... Continue Reading →

Demons prefer air freshener

I mentioned Paranormal State in my last post on "ghostbusters" Ed and Lorraine Warren. At that time I thought the show had plumbed the depths of duuuhhhh, but that was before I watched the episode rebroadcast tonight. A middle-aged, menopausal woman was experiencing poltergeist activity in her house, and Lorraine Warren declared that hormonal changes... Continue Reading →

A Haunting in ConnecticutThe haunting of a Connecticut funeral parlour that was turned into an apartment building was featured on the Discovery Channel series A Haunting in 2002, and is the basis of the recent horror movie The Haunting in Connecticut. The Discovery documentary should be the more factual of the two retellings, but as... Continue Reading →

Ghostbusters: Ed and Lorraine Warren Part II

The Arne Johnson Case In February, 1981 Arne Cheyenne Johnson of Connecticut was charged with murdering his girlfriend's employer. His attorneys presented the novel defense that while Arne physically committed the murder, he wasn't ultimately responsible for it because he had been possessed by the same demons that plagued his girlfriend's little brother. Ed and... Continue Reading →

Ghostbusters: Ed and Lorraine Warren Part I

Ghost hunters like the legendary Harry Price and Most Haunted star Derek Acorah want to capture evidence of the afterlife, and perhaps get famous while they're at it. Ghostbusters, on the other hand, actually try to de-ghostify homes and businesses by finding out what the ghost(s) or demons want, then helping them or banishing them.... Continue Reading →

Most Boring

Since I don't live in a kid-dense area, Halloweens are pretty quiet. I'm spending much of this one watching the Most Haunted marathon on the W network. Tell me, does anything ever happen on this show? The historical tidbits at the beginning are interesting, but then the program just turns into an hour of people... Continue Reading →
