It's that time of year again when you start thinking of the spooky season. My birthday is in mid September and my gift to myself is to decorate for Halloween. There is plenty of time for planning and for crafts, construction, and plotting out your designs.

How to Host a Horror Movie Marathon



You want to have friends over for a movie marathon, but it's not enough to just show one horror movie after another. How about if you pick a theme with snacks to match and a lineup that showcases the theme?

Are You a Superhero and Don't Know It?


If you were a superhero, what would your talent be? I think I might go for a healer. Be able to touch people or think about them and create a healthy balance and healing process.

Weirdest and Rarest Weather Phenomena


Snow rollers


Snow rollers are a rare meteorological phenomenon. Did you ever build a snow fort as a kid? Start with a snowball, roll it along the ground to make a giant ball? Well, in the right conditions, wind can pick up snow and roll it!

Don Monroe Case Files: Mystery Rope Braiding Continues


In the Don Monroe Case Files, the researcher has an update for us from the "rope braiding" incidents at his cabin in the Northwest.

LINK TO PRIOR POST ABOUT BRAIDS

August 10th, Don came back to his cabin from a trip away.

When Don arrived, he found ropes again tied high on the ladder that leans against his cabin.

The house lights were on, but had been left off before he departed on the trip.

No signs of broken entry. The door was locked.

Inside, he found 3 yards of red rope tied to the buckle of a cartridge belt and the other end tied to a metal clamp.

The mystery continues....

Habituation Situation: Bigfoot's Dexterity and Designs



Every Monday on Ghost Hunting Theories I continue to archive what I consider to be one of the most significant habituation situations documented by researchers. As the series continues along, field notes, photos, audio and video will be revealed on a massive scale.

As the researchers worked to understand the entities they were dealing with, around every corner they found more and more startling evidence and interactions that changed their viewpoint on everything they thought they knew about mankind.

Grandin Road Halloween 2019


It's that time of year when Halloween decor begins to make its grand showing. In the case of Grandin Road, this is always a gorgeous and gothic delight!

Gangster Ghosts


Gangster: A gangster is a member a gang out to perform illegal activities. They are also called mobsters. Perhaps one of these most infamous gangsters in America was Al Capone. He got to that position by cornering the market in prostitution, bootlegged alcohol and gambling in Chicago during the Prohibition Era.

Spirit Halloween 2019


For we paranormal geeks and horror fiends, the latter half of summer starts our engines for the Halloween season. Nothing says "it's coming" like Spirit Halloween stores. Admit it, how many times do you wander around the shop while it's open during the season? For me, I average about 6 times and that's showing restraint. .

Mirrors: Portals To Other Worlds?




"I love mirrors. They let one pass through the surface of things."

Claude Chabrol


Mirrors have always held a love/hate relationship for the humans that covet them. A mirror can be a reflection of what it outside of it, but some have long wondered if perhaps they reflect also something held within; other realms, the dead, evil, and dead souls.

URBEX: Abandoned Motels



Julie and I went back to the abandoned motel used for one of the chapters in our Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition) book. It's changed a bit. The last time, there was a TV out front, now, a black bird with its head ripped off - welcoming, huh?

Given that motels are temporary dwellings and often the location of vacations and escape from our usual routine, seeing one abandoned is a sobering thing. Here's just some of what I've come across over the years of URBEX'ing.

1970s Halloweens



There were some wonderful Halloween specials in the 1970s. Halloween was just catching fire big time in popularity and nearly every single child trick or treated. I recall going out until midnight and carrying a pillowcase. We were greedy boogers and being part of the baby-boomer generation, there were a lot of us!

Lovelock Cave Series: Inconsistencies Found in Smithsonian's "Narrative"



On a visit to Lovelock Cave, a group of researchers discovered some interesting evidence of the past lying around.  If you want to keep up on future installments of this series look for the tab at the top of the blog that says "Lovelock Cave Series." 

This post is co-written by researcher Dennis Guern who had the piece of mind to document while there.
