Mt. Everest at 29,000 feet and other mountains in the Tibetan Plateau that tempt hikers to climb to their summits are also magnets for unexplained mysteries. The Himalayas are the tallest peaks in the world and growing a fraction of an inch each year. If para experiences occur rampantly in geologically active areas, then Tibet is surely one of the most spooky places in the world!

I've lived in the Southwestern US the majority of my life. You cry a little bit through summer and fall because it's, well, miserable weather. But, if you hold out, December opens up to be mild low 70s and 40s and 30s at night and you remember what is to love about this inhospitable place. Holidays here are different too. Some traditions are unusual and quirky which, for this geek, are just fine. Let me share some of the charm that is Southwestern Holiday Season.

Steampunk is a style that borrows from the Victorian Era and revolution of the steam engine. It is in fashion, literature, art, lifestyles, and movies. Those who love that romantic time period and the gritty gadgetry and the rich fabrics, fancy clothing involved in turn-of-the-century, safari, and Egyptology will adore movies that exude that class. Here's a list of my favorites -

Admittedly, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (the 1959 version based on the Jules Verne novel), is one of my favorite movies of all time. As a kid, I could watch it every time it came on and now I own it on disk, so I can see it endlessly!

Across the world, ancient art on rock walls teaches us much about the priorities of the ancient people in their day to day lives and spirituality. But what do we make of cultures that had no contact when they portray the same images on their rock walls that are not everyday items one encounters like wildlife and water? Let's have a look at some unusual similarities from disparate cultures.

Caves are amazing vessels. They are surrounded by stone and metals, often times created by volcanic activity, disrupted by seismic activity, utilized to provide shelter, to stash treasures and hide away to die. If a home can be haunted, can a cave be even more so? And why?

**This post is a special guest posting by a researcher I greatly respect, David Claerr.**
Among all the reported sightings and contacts between humans and the legendary Sasquatch, also called Bigfoot, one of the most fascinating and lively documented cases occurred in the community of Lake Worth, just to the northwest of Fort Worth, Texas. Not only did over a hundred people report seeing the creature, in some cases there were up to forty people who saw it at the same time and place, and among them were police officers who noted the episode in their official reports.

C'mon, you miss being a teen with enough responsibility to drive and get away, but young enough to not worry about earning your way.

Or just hang with your bro's or sisses and be crazy for a weekend? Let's have a look at movies that will put you in the party mood-

Vacations have pretty much reached the maximum capacity for entertainment for most of us. If you want to lie on a beach or read a book in a hammock, drink a fruity cocktail with an umbrella in it, there's hundreds of choices. But, what if you want your vacation to be a little more...thrilling?

Saturday, November 18: Link to run the live event: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3a0sxZ00y193_aKpbfWYpA/?sub_confirmation=1
Nico Augusto and Marianna of Paranormal Travel will investigate LIVE at the Fougeret castle, one of the most haunted places in Europe.
They will be accompanied by four people from their Youtube community for a unique experience.
The haunting will start by identifying the ghosts locations, then they will discover every part of the building in order to get in touch with the many ghosts at the Fougeret Castle.
For that they will use their senses, but also their material to detect signs of a paranormal activity.
Check out the first Live at 06:00 pm Paris time (11 am EST/10 am CST/9 am MST/8 am PST) and if you are curious you can follow them all night(day in America) as the investigators will sleep on site.
(LINK) Château de Fougeret is popular with ghost hunters and has even been on French TV several times. There are photos of ‘ghosts’ taken by the French Institute for Research and Experimentation on Spirits displayed in the living room and those who are brave enough to stay the night report seeing ghostly apparitions and voices telling them to go away and leave the castle in peace.

On an uninhabited inhospitable island in Russian waters only 900 km from the North Pole, are some very strange huge round spheres of stone. Josef Franz Land Island is a very curious place. Eighty five percent of the island is glacial year-round.

Tonight on History Channel - premiere of limited series
The Hunt for the Zodiac Killer
Limited Series Premiere, Tonight at 10/9c
Throughout the early 1960s and 1970s, the Zodiac Killer, one of history’s most famous unidentified serial murderers, terrorized America in a spree of heinous attacks, sending taunting letters and codes filled with bizarre and ancient symbols. This code has baffled some of the greatest minds in cryptology for over 50 years. HISTORY’s new nonfiction limited series, "The Hunt For The Zodiac Killer" opens up a new investigation into the mystery of this twisted serial assassin.

Rather primitive features unrelated to the indigenous people around the world have been found in ancient art. What did these people encounter? What inspired these works? Perhaps ancient legends can help illuminate this mystery.

Our paranormal investigation team runs into the occasional unexplained situation that lingers in the back of our minds as we ponder just what are the activating agents (always key in haunted locations) and the alleviating agents. With this knowledge in hand we can come to some conclusions about what is occurring and how.
The mystery of the mining town green lights is one such puzzle -

I am lucky to work with the most curious and amazing minds in the field of paranormal research, both my paranormal investigation team and the Bigfoot research team. We have an ongoing case with APR (Arizona Paranormal Research) that has me thinking about feng shui and the potential to work with this concept at an ongoing study at a mining town.

Strange sounds have been heard coming from the earth for as long as man can recall, but it seems that recently with our ability to record easily with cell phones, people are capturing more sounds and some can curl your hair as if the earth has skidded to a halt with a heavy load. Some people call them skyquakes and that's a good name for it.

Tonight on History Channel a new season of "The Curse of Oak Island" begins.
Oak Island, a small wooded island just off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, is said to be the hiding place of a mysterious buried treasure. An ominous legend says that seven people must die in pursuit of the treasure before Oak Island will reveal her secrets. So far, the body count stands at six.
This series has been addictive, to say the least. It's the great dream to go out and hunt an infamous treasure and these men are putting all they have into it, blood, sweat, tears, time and cash. And, there's a little kid inside of each of us saying "oh boy! oh boy!" as we watch each hint fed to us through a well-executed reality show.
Let's see what this season brings for Rick and Marty Lagina and all the hard workers helping make this happen. God bless the adventurers!
Remember, if you can't have an adventure, at least follow one!

My two favorite movies “The Goonies” and “Jaws” actually do it for me because they have many of the same elements. I can literally watch them once a month and not get sick of them. It wasn't until I watched them back to back one day that I realize...these two movies have much in common.

Aokigahara Forest at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan has taken on the tragic nickname of "Suicide Forest." Every year, hundreds of despondent people enter the forest, some of them camping for a time to put their heads in the right place to make the final desperate sacrifice of their mortal life in this beautiful natural setting. Such a location, for 14 square miles of size, and given the amounts of death should be quite haunted, but there are more reasons than just those for why it could be exceptionally haunted.

I have been very blessed to know some amazing bloggers, but one who was very dear to my heart was my good friend, John Wolfe. He ran the blog Season of Shadows and embodied all things vintage and true Halloween. He would begin early in the year designing elaborate home haunts and sharing on video how he went about designing them. He did lots of volunteer work and was always available for anyone. He sought to understand the spiritual and the other side. In fact, as he was dying, he said he would contact me through EVPs. And, he asked me to write his memorial which I did and he read it and approved of it before his passing at much too early an age in his 30s. Each Halloween, I will post his memorial here. Halloween is his season, his paradise, and I miss him something awful every October. I'd like to share him with you now -

Ah, trick-or-treating in the 70s. What a magical time. Parents left us to run like vagabonds and gypsies through the neighborhoods brandishing pillowcases, and for the few good-doer nerds, Unicef boxes. Mass produced costumes were more common than the old-fashioned handmade stuff and everyone wanted the latest plastic mask. School had us wearing our costumes and parading the halls without any kind of "politically correct" protocol other than Women Women would be sent to the office for a sweater to wear over their provocative costume.

So many scary movies, so many scare scenes. But, some of these amazing captures have everything working from them in the tension, atmosphere, suspense department and stick with us long after viewing. Here's my top 10 most scary scenes list from horror movies (old and new combined).

Hollow Earth concept is one that was born out of some musings in the past about whether the earth might contain pockets of life we don't know about on the surface, or perhaps an entire world within. There are legends of this from around the world which makes it an interesting subject to study.
