Alien Mysteries

Despite suffering from some low production value, this series on Destination America is pretty great.
Tons of weird chilling moments.

EMT Ghost Stories

I have had fellow coworkers swear that strange things have occurred in the ER. Two people that I work with were charting at the nurses station when they both heard a scream followed by incoherent words come from one of our open bays. There were three patients in the room and they denied screaming or hearing anything. I have also had fellow coworkers talk about hearing strange voices especially after really bad codes and one person states she felt someone grabbing her shoulder after the doc pronounced a trauma code. These are all respectable people and I do not think they would lie.

Campfire Treat

The joys of camp . . . mesmerized by the fire, singing and laughing, while toasting marshmallows to rich, gooey perfection! 

A potentially Halloween-ish scent from YankeeThough as an inmate of a summer day camp for a few weeks when I was young, I find the phrase "joys of camp" appalling

They should add an earthy hay/grass scent to it and rename it Halloween Hayride for the upcoming Fall season.

The Man Who Shot Sasquatch

We were watching Monsters and Mysteries in America last week.  It's a series with low production value and a lot of cheese, but it has some decent content.  Justin Smeja was featured last night, and he claims to have shot an adult Sasquatch and killed a juvenile Squatch.  I'm no friend of Bigfoot and I subscribe to the view that, if real, they're what the American Indian believed to be a human-like race which fed on humans (see:  Missing 411).

Well, Smeja described hunting with his friend and coming across a Bigfoot.  He aimed and took a shot.  The adult fell to the ground and was trying to crawl further into the woods to escape.  Then he saw two juveniles.  He pursued and shot one in the throat, even held it in his arms as it died.

It was like being behind that mirror in an interrogation room, listening to a murderer tell how he did it.  Very strange and chilling.

So I dug around and found that this is a pretty big story in the Bigfoot community.  Justin Smeja even passed a lie detector test.

Interview With Karl Mueller And Jon Foster

A neat interview about the making of Mr. Jones.  At the 15:35 mark, the interviewer asks "Who took home a scarecrow?"

Mr. Jones Premiere

Just got back from New York.  We attended the premiere of Karl Mueller's Mr. Jones at the Tribeca Film Festival.  An absolutely surreal experience to see my scarecrows on the big screen.  We met fellow haunter Noah Fentz in the lobby and then met up with K.O. and her husband.  Hanging with those guys made the entire experience unforgettable.  Truly.

Super excited for Karl and everyone involved with the film for getting a distribution by Anchor Bay.  Hopefully soon we'll get some specifics on the deal, and a trailer.

The first clip has been released.
