Our 21 year old neighbor was also a fan, and he used to come hang out with us once in a while. He didn't have a relationship with his parents and I suspect … Continue reading Fifty Shades of Gray Hair

Did they not want to scar young children? Did the folks who own the rights to Raggedy Ann object to them using … Continue reading Ramblings of a Retired “Ghost Hunter” (part 6)

One of the first things I remember hearing from the Warrens when I was a kid was that Ouija boards are very dangerous because they are "blind communication" and open doors to the demonic. Well, if that didn't scare me nothing did. I remember going through the toy department in stores and going to the … Continue reading Ramblings of a Retired “Ghost Hunter” part 5

I remember the first time I tried an EVP recording. It was in a cemetery, late at night. I did the usual question thing for a while, then just left the recorder on top of a headstone for maybe an hour while I wandered off to take pictures and such. I took the recorder with … Continue reading Ramblings of a Retired “Ghost Hunter” (part 4)
