Before I get to today’s post, I wanted to remind those of you who are coming to my Halloween party that if you haven’t booked your hotel room yet, now is the time. Paul over at Jestertunes needs your reservation by 3 PM EST today or that promotional rate is gone like the wind. Just contact him by phone at 1-800-474-5678, ext. 5402, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll get you all set up. For more information on the party, visit Avitable.com/neverwas/.
I watch Ghost Hunters on SciFi. It’s the only show of its type that I’ll watch (with the exception of the boring spin-off “Ghost Hunters International”). Any other show like it (Paranormal State, Most Haunted, etc.) is usually shit. People walking around having “feelings” of spirits – that is not scientific. That is not proof. It’s just bullshit.
Video evidence, audio recordings – that’s evidence. Not evidence of ghosts or spirits. Just evidence of the paranormal. All that “the paranormal” means is that defies scientific explanation. Whether it’s a disembodied voice that only shows up on a digital recorder or a strange shadow that appears to move autonomously, it’s evidence that something strange has occurred. And I love it.
Last week’s episode contained an investigation where the investigators caught a voice saying “go home”, and saw, on the thermal camera (but not on the infrared camera), a figure tiptoeing in a highly exaggerated fashion. It was some of the creepiest paranormal evidence I’ve seen yet. It still freaks me out!
Check it out and see. It’s the episode called “Speaking with the Dead”. Just skip to the last ten minutes or so to watch the evidence they caught.
