Man struck, killed by train on anniversary of fatal wreck

This story has been making national headlines, and it unfortunately shows the dangers of “ghost hunting” while trespassing. A North Carolina-based ghost hunting group was at the site of the Bostian Bridge train wreck on the anniversary of the crash (which took place on August 27, 1891). They were on the bridge in the early […]

Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State

Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State by Loren Coleman and Bruce G. Hallenbeck “As in all investigations in New Jersey, as elsewhere, it is best to approach your quest with an open mind, critically, skeptically, and patiently.” I suppose it’s fitting to start my review of Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious […]

Movie Review: The Last Exorcism

Don’t look now, Team Edward fans, but it’s looking like demons are heating up the silver screen again and may just be the antidote to the latest vampire craze.  With last year’s hugely successful Paranormal Activit how to get your ex back&gt What Not To Text To Get An Ex Back. how to make your […]

Roswell’s UFO Fest receives $150,000 in city funds

A few months back, I reported on a crisis in Roswell, NM: city officials were going to pull the plug on the annual UFO Festival. A few weeks later, I reported how such musical luminaries as Billy Ray Cyrus and Phil Vassar had pulled out of the festival, afraid that they might not get their […]

Ghost Hunters Season 6 – “Haunted Hotel”

I’ve really lost a lot of respect for “Ghost Hunters” and TAPS these past few seasons, for a variety of reasons. The focus has gone from residential cases to famous locations and businesses. Their evidence has gone from intriguing to lame and questionable. Evidence that would have been thrown out (sometimes angrily) by Jason in […]

UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record

It’s usually hard to find books on UFOs that don’t make me cringe. I’ve read hundreds of books on UFOs, and most of them are nothing more than a step up from being National Enquirer quality “journalism.” They tend to take witness testimony as fact, even when that testimony is (and pardon the pun) out […]

Jackson compound ‘haunted by ghosts’

In a desperate attempt to stay culturally relevant, Jermaine Jackson has recently gone to the media with a hot story: the Jackson family compound is absolutely swarming with ghosts.  He swears it’s true. And by blindly accepting his house as being haunted (instead of possibly trying to figure out more rational and likely explanations), he […]

Triangle UFO spotted during Ozzy Osbourne concert

I of course believe in the possibility of UFOs. I also believe in the possibility of ghosts, Bigfoot, and all other sorts of creatures from the goblin universe. But I’m also an Ozzy Osbourne fan, and have been to a number of his concerts. So when I see stories like this, I become a bit […]

Right now is about the point in baseball season when you’re either feeling confident in your team’s abilities to earn a shot at the playoffs, praying for a miracle to boost their rankings, or wishing football season would just get here already.  Like it or not, baseball season is still in full swing, and so […]

“Beast Legends” Premieres September 9th on SyFy

I wish I could get excited by the news of a paranormal show premiering that focuses on the search for things that aren’t ghosts. I really feel that other paranormal phenomena have gotten the shaft as of late, with the popularity of “Ghost Hunters” and its seemingly endless spinoffs, odd-looking steroid freak-hosted “Ghost Adventures,” the downright awful […]
