TV Review: In Search Of…

Whenever the inevitable question comes up regarding what first got me interested in the paranormal, my answer is always the same: the old In Search Of… television show hosted by Leonard Nimoy. In fact, I even make reference to it here on the blog in my bio. In Search Of… was a syndicated TV series that ran from 1977 to […]

Paranormal Investigator Finds Las Vegas Time Warp?

I try to keep an open mind about all things paranormal, but I initially approach everything from a more skeptical point of view. I have, on occasion, come across things I can’t easily rationalize or debunk. But for the most part, the vast majority of paranormal or supernatural occurrences can be easily explained. I hate […]

Amityville Horror House

An Amityville Horror Connection

Any good paranormal investigator will tell you that historical research is one of the most important tools in their arsenal. Ghost hunters use it learn about the locations they are investigating, and why a certain spot may have paranormal activity. Murders, suicides, and other tragedies such as horrific conditions at medical facilities seem to become […]

Strange wolf-like animal shot in Montana

Strange Wolf-like Creature Killed in Montana

Social media is buzzing today about this story, about a strange, wolf-like creature that was shot and killed in Montana on May 16th. It’s clearly not a pure breed wolf, but people are claiming it may be the thought to be extinct direwolf, the infamous Dogman, a werewolf, or some other mythical devil dog. DNA […]

Mysterious Sounds in Bucks County, PA

One of my favorite unexplained mysteries, from when I was a wee lad reading about such things in the library, is unexplained sounds. In fact, one of my very first “mysteries of the unexplained” encyclopedias had an entry devoted to the Barisal Guns phenomenon heard in 19th century Bangladesh, so named because they sounded like […]

Brooklyn Hyena and Out of Place Animals

The phenomenon of out of place animals is an interesting sub-genre of cryptozoology and Forteana, but not one that I am usually drawn to, with few exceptions. I think it’s safe to say that creatures like Bigfoot, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the Loch Ness monster, and the Dover Demon are far more intriguing than a […]

Bigfoot Spotted in New Jersey

Last month, I did a blog post about the Jersey Devil and how the legend may have originally been borne of people simply misidentifying Bigfoot. After the post was published, I had a number of people contact me privately and on social media because they were surprised to hear that Bigfoot could indeed be living […]

John Podesta on Ancient Aliens

John Podesta on “Ancient Aliens,” says Hillary Would Have Declassified UFO Info

With a few rare exceptions, I don’t even approach anything political here on the blog, since I like to create a fun space and we are already bombarded daily by political garbage from pretty much every other news and social media outlet in existence. But how could I resist this completely bonkers story? I’ll summarize, […]

Finding Bigfoot Series Finale

“Finding Bigfoot” Ends its Run on Animal Planet’s Monster Week

The Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot has long been a guilty pleasure of mine. Sure, they never do actually “find” Bigfoot, but they do make a lot of noise, as well as a lot of jokes, while looking for him. My interest in the show was always less about the four main cast members from […]

El Chupacabra? Or Just CGI?

A story about a mysterious, dog-killing creature was making the rounds on the internet today, especially because a pretty clear photo of the alleged beast was reportedly captured while it was on its rampage. The animal, described as being half-dog and half-human, bears a striking resemblance to what a lot of people think of as […]
