Cats and the internet.
They go together like bread and butter, milk and cereal and any internet based comment page and incessant trolling.
Now we have a cat named Loki who while not the brother of Thor and as far as I know is not a megalomaniac dictator,he does have the teeth of the un-dead.
This week, Loki has become a internet sensation, but there is an account in Japanese folklore of an actual vampire cat…
Being haunted is hard, but break ups are harder.
Only in the world of the paranormal and the just plain weird would such events collide but that is just what they did when a woman in Rock Hill, South Carolina discovered that she did not have a ghost in her house, but rather her ex-boyfriend who had kept himself hidden in her house’s attic for two weeks.
*Update at bottom of post, the pic used has been debunked, which does not bode well for this whole story, plus honestly from the get go it has not been published by any other ‘major’ source online.*
What image pops up in your head when you think of Satan, the lord of darkness, master of fear and deception?
Horns, red skin, tail and a goatee?
What about what looks like the illegitimate love child of Marilyn Manson and Vampira with too much eye make up?
According to one Ashton Black of Tampa, Florida, he is now Satan and we all have till August, 24th, 2015 to accept him as our master or we all die.
All because he encountered the man himself when he walked into a pay day loan store.
You can’t make stuff like this up, read on if you want to live…
First let me say that I DO believe in psychic phenomena.
Personally my intuition once basically saved my life as a teen plus I have always felt that the mind has more power then we fully understand.
A couple of my own paranormal experiences are why this website is not totally skeptical about ghosts, UFOs and other strange events.
However, most psychics today are out there for one reason and one reason only: Bucks, dollars, shrapnel and cash. Whatever term you want to use, most paid psychics are out there looking for the bottom line.
To get your money, they will tell you that your lost and beloved bike is in the basement of The Alamo.
They may tell you they can contact your dead relatives, but really they are interested in portraits of dead people on pieces of paper in your pocket, purse or wallet.
Which is why comedian and prankster Tyler Fischer went out into the streets of New York City to do something similar to what Houdini once did during the psychic and spirit photography boom of his time.
To prove that a majority of them are downright fakes.
E-Bay is a modern marvel in virtual shopping and a great place to sell off that unwanted junk in your attic.
However whenever we allow the population of the world to log in and put virtually anything up for sale, you will get the few weird items here and there.
One such item is a purported ‘rock’ from the infamous Amityville Horror House, which can be yours right now for about two hundred dollars with shipping…
We all know the classical signs of a haunting by a ghost: Strange noises, cold spots, feelings of dread and the occasional item thrown.
However, as some in the Zhejiang province in China recently discovered, the ghosts they encountered did not just go bump in the night but bumped, grinded and probably did many other terrifying acts not seen since the crucifix scene in The Exorcist.
The act of Human beings trying to contact the dead on the other side has become a common part of paranormal research over the years.
Whether it be raps on a wall or table, direct communication through a psychic or automatic writing, spirit communication really collided with the general public since the talking board or ‘Ouija’ board was created in the late 19th century.
Since then many a horrifying tale, both fiction and non, has started with a group of friends using the tool to communicate with the great beyond.
The slow and painful act of waiting for the ghost to actually spell out his message seemed a bit out of date however to an enterprising trio who have brought ‘Emoji’ to the Ouija mojo.
It started with a vision of using little graphical pictures on the board for the spirits to communicate with the living.
Ever wanted to know if the ghost in your house was in love, happy, sad, was trying to tell you about an old Indian burial ground or was in a murderous rage in hardly no time and via a cute ghost cartoon your kids will adore?
Your prayers may have been answered.
If you grew up in the last half century or so, the tradition of checking your Halloween candy after coming home from Trick or Treating was a commonplace event of your childhood.
There could be a razor blade stuck in your Taffy Apple or a loose wrapper on your peanut butter cup that may mean poison.
Like most things though, especially those connected to a holiday like Halloween, truth is often stranger (and sometimes scarier) then fiction.
The first question is: Has a child ever died from candy connected to the holiday of Halloween?
That fact stated, the truth behind the fear of a murderer targeting children through poisoned holiday sweets is a bit more complex and interesting…
Being an infamous criminal in the prison system can lead to many different kinds of encounters.
For many men and women who had their names splashed across the nation after their crimes were discovered this can lead to dangerous and life threatening situations, such as when Charles Manson was set on fire in a California institution in 1984.
However, sometimes these individuals are able to pretty much live their lives like any other prisoner to the outside observer, at least until the cases that made them famous are brought back out for the odd crime documentary or two.
Ronald DeFeo never quite did escape the lime light, not because of the tragic events of November 1974 when he killed not only both his parents but his four siblings as well, but because the house the murders were committed in on Ocean Ave in Amityville, Long Island would later become the setting for one of the greatest paranormal stories ever told.
The Amityville Horror became a force of it’s own in the paranormal world and the horror movie genre, spawning a legacy of books, films and documentary projects that try to shed light on the twenty-eight days the Lutz family spent in this apparent haunted house.
Naturally the house being the site of a multiple murder was thought to be one of the possible causes of the events that took place at the residence and at one time Ronald DeFeo even tried to fit the spooky scenario into one of his many version of what happened that night in 1974.
None the less. there is a man behind the myth, a man who gets up each morning to the routine of prison while serving his six twenty-five year to life sentences for his henious murder.
A man convicted robber turned author and journalist Daniel Genis got to know during his stay at Green Haven Correctional Facility…
