    Open Every Door

    Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door. – Emily Dickenson One of the most wonderful things about researching, investigating and even just having a general fascination with anomalistic, paranormal, UFOlogical, cryptozoological phenomena comes from the fact no one really knows anything. Since the fields are open to speculation and imagination we have the ability, and responsibility, to look at and ponder all of the endless facets of each experience. We can use scientific methods, trace stories through folklore and mythology, experiment wildly, and debate the smallest snow laden footprint, the largest spinning light in the sky and all the raps, bumps and figures in the night.…

    The State of the Unusual 2019

    Friends, Family, Patrons, Ghost Hunters, Cryptozoologists, Ufologists, Phantologists, Saucerers, Transdimensional Witches, Animated Tin Cans, Robosaurians, Were-Worfs, Rosicrucians, Golden Dawn, Golden Girls, Skeptics, Believers, and Fellow Weirdos. Where we were…are? For those persons living in the past 2018 is approaching but for us it seems to have gone away. 2019 has arrived and it has brought along with it a surge in the sightings of UFO… television shows and new ideas about supernatural phenomena which will, once again most likely, be disregarded by popular paranormal reality shows. Twilight Zone is being rebooted, Unsolved Mysteries is being rebooted, Ghostbusters is being rebooted and the rebooted In Search Of has been booted off…

    I don’t remember the first time I was called a “Weirdo” but that’s probably because I was too busy protecting my body from a flurry of flying fists. Stick and stones may break my bones but names? …well, as a society we’ve actually started to realize that names can hurt you too. Yet, the name “Weirdo” didn’t hurt me. I liked it. I realized that when I was being beaten, tormented and ostracized by people who considered me a “Weirdo,” in my mind it meant that they must not be “Weirdos.” In that moment of realization, I understood that “Weirdos” didn’t beat people up, “Weirdos” didn’t torment people, “Weirdos” didn’t…

    The World’s Most Haunted Location

    I am very frequently asked by people, “Where is the most haunted place in the world?” My answer is always the same, “If any place is haunted, it’s the Earth.” Now, although many people think that I am trying to be funny, which I am, I am also being serious. So, let’s try a little thought experiment. If ghosts are what people generally believe them to be, (the remaining energy/consciousness of a human being who has died), then each person could potentially become a ghost when they pass out of this realm. I’m bad with math but I can make this easy on myself and you…so hold on. Since human…

    It’s All In Your Head

    Sometimes I just have to get an idea out and this is one I’ve talked about at lectures for years and still have never really seen anyone else talk about it. When discussing “ghosts” I often hear people say, “It’s all in your head” to which I respond, “Right! Everything is in my head!”So let’s get on with it shall we? Millions of people, for thousands of years, have made the claim that they’ve seen what could be called a “ghost”. Over the years I’ve read and heard countless variations on the stories and each time I wonder to myself, “Where are people seeing ghosts?” My question has little to…
