Alligator Found in Staten Island Bathtub

Most people are familiar with the urban legend of “alligators in the sewers,” especially here in New York City. And a good portion of those people probably still believe it’s just that, an urban legend. But it has actually happened (and there are many “out of place” animal reports in addition to this one). But recently the NYPD […]

Ghost Hunters new channel

Where will Ghost Hunters end up?

As I reported back in June, it seems as though Ghost Hunters is done on the SyFy Channel. When Jason Hawes announced the news on his Facebook page that the show wouldn’t be returning to SyFy, many fans took it to mean that Ghost Hunters was canceled and wasn’t coming back. His comments were vague, […]

Fireball in the Western Sky: UFO or Space Junk?

We live in an era of rash opinions and quick suppositions, thanks largely in part to social media. It used to be that if a mysterious event occurred, it was usually explained away long before the majority of people could start speculating on what it was. Mysterious events still filtered out, like the Tunguska event, […]

Miss Cleo, TV Hotline Psychic, Dead at 53

For anyone who watched television in the late 1990s, there are probably only a handful of commercials that are as memorable and quotable as the Psychic Friends Network ads featuring “Miss Cleo.” Adding to the absurdity of calling a late-night telephone hotline to have your fortune read was her fake Jamaican accent and her shouted […]

Staten Island UFO against Hillary Clinton

UFO Over Staten Island is Against Hillary Clinton

We really try to stay away from political stuff here on the blog. This is a place to talk about the paranormal, supernatural and unexplained, after all. Though I am fairly convinced that Donald Trump is some sort of new cryptid (the lesser-known “orange pendek” maybe?) and that Hillary Clinton is a Lizard Person. Anyway, […]

Area 51 Pokemon Go Eevee Mewtwo

Pokémon Go Leads Players to Area 51

Kids these days, huh? What with their loud music, hula hoops, and fax machines. But the biggest fad these days: “Pokémon Go,” a new app that is bringing millions of people together to go out in the world to find imaginary Japanese cartoon characters. People using the app have found dead bodies, been apprehended on […]

CNN Ghostbusters reboot Laura Pennace of New York Paranormal Society

CNN Interview: Laura Pennace on “Ghostbusters” and Sexism in The Paranormal

The new “Ghostbusters” reboot opened in theaters yesterday, and along with the nostalgia came a lot of controversy, namely a ton of negative, sexist backlash against the movie and its all-female cast (comprised of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon). Of course, there were plenty of people who were against this movie for […]

Adam Berry Amy Bruni new Destination America TV show Kindred Spirits

Amy Bruni and Adam Berry to Star in New Ghost Hunting Show

Recently, news came out that Ghost Hunters would not be returning to the SyFy Channel, a shocking move considering that Ghost Hunters was possibly the greatest success of the network (though personally, my main reason for tuning to the channel was for Mystery Science Theater 3000, way back in the day). I mentioned that a […]

Woman Sees Ghost on Baby Monitor

There really is no money to be made as a paranormal investigator. But if I had a nickel for every time I had to explain to someone that the orb they captured in a photo or video was just a piece of dust, I could have retired comfortably about 5 years ago. And the only […]
