As Halloween draws near, I can't help thinking about things that give me shivers. I figured today I'd focus on sharing the scariest spaces I've been. Some may not seem scary, but all it takes to make a space scary for a person is an uneasy feeling in the gut.

For weeks after his death, I felt my older brother over my right shoulder. Strangely, when I read people's deceased loved ones, they are behind the person's right shoulder. If they are alive, they are over their left shoulder. I've been asked before how to tell if your deceased loved one is nearby. My answer is simple -
You know you're going to do it. It'll be the weekend, Halloween is around the corner, and you will dial up for pizza, hunker down with a blanket and the lights down low and watch horror movies marathon style. I have some suggestions for this well-earned evening escape.

There are several yeti movies out there to choose from, and the vast majority are honestly horrible. In fact, I don't think I've seen a good Yeti portrayal yet. So, let's cover this lesser known genre of "Yeti Spaghetti Films;" the best of the awful offerings -

Haunted Shirley, of late, has been bothersome. I wake up often at night having heard something in that corner of the room drop, shift, or pop. What happened today was another weird sign that when I plan to leave the house and go out, Shirley doesn't like it.

I highly recommend Monstrum Venandi as a great read concerning ongoing research of Bigfoot in Mississippi. The author/researcher Marcus Ellis is a researcher I greatly respect. The team he is a part of, MBEST, is performing important research.
There are so many good horror movie monsters, but some are done so well and are so original, they haunt us long after. Here's some of my favorites -

Some people with money and a vision feel compelled to set up a town in an ideal location where perhaps travelers could stop on long-distance drives. But, such was the case for the Bates Motel and when the new highway opened, they were nothing more than a forgotten side street. The town of Desert Center, California was born with a vision from one man, a dreamer in a desert that offered little hope.
It's that time of year to consider trying your hand at horrifying crafts. There is nothing that says Halloween and autumn more than a scarecrow. I'm going to show you a simple and really fun way to do a great scarecrow head that becomes a piece of art to display all year if you want!

Halloween masks of the 70s and 80s were plastic store-bought variety, but prior to that, folks made their own masks often times. Some of the masks they came up with were very unsettling. I believe they are much scarier than any "realistic" werewolf and clown masks of today.

Halloween embraces folk art, urban legends, and Pagan lore. When it's autumn, we think of harvest, but we also think of pumpkin patches and scarecrows, corn dollies and corn mazes. In a way, it's like walking over a freshly dug grave, this tromping around on harvest ground with the rot of the season littering the earth.

Hearses have this way of making us stop (and not just because of the etiquette involved with funerals), but because we are reminded of how we will be carried out of this realm and our remains put to rest. A hearse is a somber vehicle and sometimes a thing of fright. And, the vessel in which you are buried in can be quite unusual. Let's look at some ways to arrive at the grave -
I readily admit that I am a HUGE Josh Gates fan. I'm a fan of what he does and how he goes about it, apolitically, good clean fun, excitement about the world, healthy skepticism. When Discovery Channel decides to put on 4-part Expedition Unknown episodes, my toes curl!

There is no better way to usher in the season than to take some Halloween and horror-themed selfies. I have stored away dozens of them over the years as I try new challenges to become a character. Let me give some tips and tricks -

Foo Fighters: (Wikipedia) The term foo fighter was used by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II to describe various UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over both the European and Pacific theaters of operations.
Though "foo fighter" initially described a type of UFO reported and named by the U.S. 415th Night Fighter Squadron, the term was also commonly used to mean any UFO sighting from that period. Formally reported from November 1944 onwards, witnesses often assumed that the foo fighters were secret weapons employed by the enemy.
The Robertson Panel explored possible explanations, for instance that they were electrostatic phenomena similar to St. Elmo's fire, electromagnetic phenomena, or simply reflections of light from ice crystals.
