Daughter Shares Ghost Footage from Dad’s Bedroom

It seems like every week, there’s new “ghost footage” that is purported to be the be-all end-all proof of the paranormal.

So this is a thing that happened. Yesterday, former Oakland Athletics MLB star and steroid aficionado Jose Canseco tweeted out a series of odd statements relating to aliens, specifically about the little gray dudes teaching us how to time travel with our brains without the brain leaving the body.

All those theories about Wednesday’s mystery UFO sightings over Manhattan are about to go “pop.” A Westchester elementary school believes the puzzling […]

Mystery shiny objects floating over Manhattan spark UFO frenzy

I live in the East Village, so I’m kind of oblivious to most things that happen west of 6th Avenue. Thankfully I have eagle-eyed friends who send me stories such as this from the Daily News when I’m too busy paying attention to the recent bomb scare in the cemetery right behind my apartment (it […]
