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 17th 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, […]

Is the Jersey Devil Really Just Bigfoot?

Is the Jersey Devil Really Just Bigfoot?

I have often mentioned the Dover Demon as being one of my favorite cryptids, as it is one of the more bizarre “monsters” that people have reported seeing. Put plainly, it just doesn’t fit in with the vast majority of monster sightings, as it’s not a Bigfoot, it’s not a lake monster, and it’s not […]

Ghost hunters cause bomb scare with EMF meter

Ghost Hunters Cause Bomb Scare with EMF Meter

Usually, when ghost hunters cause trouble while investigating the paranormal, it’s because they are trespassing or destroying property or some such nonsense. In this case, however, the paranormal team did everything right. Well, except for leaving behind an EMF meter after their investigation, which was later found and thought to be a bomb. It doesn’t […]

Navy films UFO

Navy Pilot’s UFO Encounter Video Released

I usually shy away from UFO stories, as most tend to be fantastically ridiculous, or plainly obvious hoaxes. Even within those realms, some will occasionally catch my interest, but never in an “Oh wow, maybe there’s something to that?” kind of way. Well, stories like this are different. News broke a few months back about […]

Terror in the Woods Destination America

TV Review: Terror in the Woods

Over the years, I haven’t been very kind to Destination America and their parade of paranormal drivel. At best, shows like A Haunting have been guilty pleasures of mine, something to put on in the background when I take a nap on a sick day; at worst, they have given us abominations like Mountain Monsters […]

Ghost Hunters News!

Ghost Hunters Update! But Not Really

It’s been a while now since Ghost Hunters was canceled/opted not to return to SyFy, and the departure left more questions than answers. Mainly, why did the series end after the 12th season, and when and where will it turn up again? Jason Hawes said at the time that the show would be back, but […]

Book Review: The Bigfoot Book

The Bigfoot Book: The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti, and Cryptid Primates by Nick Redfern I may be a paranormal investigator (or “ghost hunter”in layman’s terms, I suppose), but my main interest has always been in Bigfoot. And honestly, I’m not sure why. I’ve had dozens of experiences that I would consider possibly paranormal, but only one […]
