Demon House

We rented Zak Bagans' film Demon House today and loved it.  If you're a fan of Ghost Adventures, you'll definitely enjoy this documentary.  It's genuinely creepy, with some credible witness interviews that add to the general unease and spookiness.  I actually got full-on chills at one point. 

I highly recommend it.  Well worth the rental fee.

Demon House Review

I'm liking the sound of this:
This is in NO WAY a spin-off 90-minute episode of “Ghost Adventures,” in which the guys use a number of devices and tons of night vision and/or full-spectrum cameras to tell their stories and collect evidence. Instead, Demon House utilizes the people who were affected by the case to convey just how insanely scary the events surrounding this building actually are. Was there possession? Is it haunted? Was the house used for nefarious purposes? Every time you think that things cannot get any stranger, the story keeps building and the tension keeps mounting.

Von Jekyll Art

Such neat pieces.  I feel like you'd order a mask from this shop and then read about how people in your neighborhood were murdered during the night.  Then you'd notice the dried blood on your fingers.

Totally cursed masks...

Alien Agenda

Jacobs suggests that the abduction phenomenon is not a benevolent, other-dimensional spiritual experience like so many people report. Rather, Jacobs’ research through hypnotic regression with alleged alien abductees suggests that alien-human hybrids are engaged in a covert program of infiltration into human society worldwide. “These human hybrids are training to live here,” Jacobs asserts, “and they are being trained by the abductees.” And what is the end game according to Dr. David Jacobs? “The planetary acquisition through the creation of human-like hybrids.” “The more you look at this”, says Jacobs, “the more rational it becomes.”

As someone who has looked into this strangeness for years, I've always found it odd that a race of superior beings would have to study us for decades and decades.  Like what else is there to learn?  A human's a human.  So as fun as it is to be terrified of the alien abduction phenomena, it was somewhat comforting to know that it just didn't make sense. 

Well, if you're going to buy that this is actually happening, and abductees aren't crazy, then the latest theories by Dr. David Jacobs are pretty fascinating.  And terrifying.  In a fun and disgustingly horrifying manner.  It's almost too terrifying to consider as even a possibility.  Naturally, I'm considering it.  Mostly at night.  When I'm trying to sleep.  Usually after hearing a noise.

Cadabra Records

Very curious about these albums/records.  Wishing there were short samples of what these are like, though the artwork alone would be worth it.

Onion Grass

I wanted to tell this story before I forgot.

A while back, I learned that the old farmer who found it would eat breakfast at the same diner each and every Wednesday morning. I made sure I was there that day, and waited until he stood to leave before I kindly pulled him aside and asked him if the story were true, and if he’d show it to me. I had been warned about his tired indifference to this request, since most of the people in this side of the state had asked him the same two questions. After I introduced myself, he seemed a little confused, or hard of hearing, and asked me to repeat my name. After I did so, he told me I should follow him to his farm.

It was late October, so the drive to his rural home was a welcome change from my daily life of routine. I was feeling proud of myself for taking this chance and actually following through with a personal goal, even though it might have been perceived as a peculiar one. I watched his old truck ahead of me, slightly swerving on the bumpy dirt road, kicking up clouds of dust that quickly floated off across brown acres of brittle bent corn. According to some folks in the diner, it had been a very dry season and I wondered about this old farmer in front of me, and if his life had been affected by the drought. Admittedly, I know nothing of farming, and my life of gray walls and cubicles started to feel something of an embarrassment to me. A feeling which started with our handshake back at the diner. This old man's hands were massive things. His life of hard work created them, and my hand felt dwarfed and weak being gripped by his.

We turned onto a gravel road lined by enormous sycamore trees. Their patchy flaking bark reminded me of the pieces of a puzzle. They seemed to get taller, wider, and whiter as we got closer to his farm. I watched him drive through an open gate past the last two trees. He parked under a rusty metal carport attached to the side of his barn. Both structures looked like they were pushing into each other, and his garage was winning. The barn looked tired. And unsafe. It was bursting with old farm equipment, tires, hoses, rows of rusted paint cans, and the frames of two old tractors.

And I hoped that he wasn't keeping it inside.


Now Playing: Storm Of The Century

This penultimate cue of the mini-series soundtrack was something of a Holy Grail back in the day.  I really dug the series, and I recall finding the entire thing very unnerving and the villain really scary.
