Upon occasion I see a horror movie that gives me hope. The hope is that there are developing horror movie directors to keep the genre alive. Any of us in our middle years know that rock music seems to have died. We never imagined that happening. Well, there is a fear that horror movies had their heyday, but no more. Let's talk today about "The Boy" and why the director gives me hope.

Cemeteries are the most beautiful and peaceful parks and memorials. A walk among the rows of headstones under the shady trees brings a sense of quiet and introspection. Sometimes, however, cemetery art takes on a sinister tone as weather and aging can make even the happiest sculpture twisted and creepy. Other art, designed to take on gothic and anguished proportions, becomes something quite frightening. Let's look at what can happen to the art when placed in a peaceful cemetery.

I grew up with two very divergent influences: "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and "Charlie's Angels." Both exhibited intelligence, diligence, and bravery, but one was a bit bumbling and a loner, the other was a neat sexy glamour team. And somehow, forever, I've been embracing both.

I was introduced to a research group based on my focus on language/communication and psychic pathways. That's how I started studying the Tall Ones and then quickly went into more arenas like guidelines for habituation and interaction and eventually the search for their ancestors/lineage (Link to those findings).
As I had some time to focus on any signs of psychic skills, I have some input to share here today -

It's August and by now I'm well and fully one foot into autumn and another foot creeping toward Halloween. I like to have a weekend where I put on the 5 basic horror movies that I love to watch around Halloween time just to hear the music and see some dark and spooky places. Here's what I am darkening my windows to watch this weekend -

Summer nights are getting just a wee bit shorter. Part of you wants to dive right into autumn darkness, blankets, warm lights, but another part has a daytime heat reality. How about transitioning to the coziness of autumn while enjoying what's left of summer? How about a Bohemian backyard prepared for your lady love?

From our favorite rugged explorer and researcher, Don Monroe, comes a local native legend. The Seven Devils Mountain range in Idaho carries a story that will never make you look at this rugged mountain area the same. It is said, there are giants in them there hills!

August is kind of like the February of wintertime. In winter, we are fed up with the cold, the snow, and the colorless surroundings that were once charming at Christmastime. Here we are in the latter half of summertime, pining away for chilly nights, cooler and shorter days. Let's dive into a taste of autumn and how to transition so we can savor the best season of all!
Local legends are always fun. This one is very scary.
In Casa Grande (just northwest of I-10 meeting I-8, south on Thornton Rd which is a washboard dirt road) there's a place called "The Domes." This conglomeration of weird-shaped buildings was originally built as a semiconductor factory that never opened. What is left is a bunch of very long and Kiva-shaped buildings that are open to the elements. And to transients.
*Warning: One of the buildings has collapsed. Due to liability and being privately owned, take pictures from afar.
