Ghost Busters (1954) Trailer

Dr. Fong Says:
I aint askeered a no ghost!

Ghostbusters, the movie, was shot in 1954 instead of 1984. Who should be part of the cast? Would they have the same equipment? Who would they battle? Considering Dan Aykroyd's concept owes a lot to Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, and Lewis and Martin comedies of the 40s and 50s, it is not that big of a stretch to speculate.

I hope you enjoy this re-imagined concept for Ghostbusters.

R.I.P. John A. Keel: 1930-2009

Stan the Chosen One Says: Always watch the skies!

John A. Keel: 1930-2009

John A. Keel was one of the greatest paranormal researchers of the previous century. He wrote many wonderful books such as Strange Creatures of Time and Space and The Mothman Prophecies. His first book, Jadoo, investigated the alleged fakirs, Indian wizards who performed supposed miracles, such as the Indian Rope Trick and survive being buried alive.

Keel started to study intensely on the UFO phenomenon in early 1966. He interviewed thousands of people in over twenty states and read over 2,000 books, along with countless magazines, newspapers and newsletters over a four year period.

His most popular work, The Mothman Prophecies, was an account of his studies in the Ohio River Valley. Many strange things happened, such as conversations with aliens, odd military presences and those damned Men In Black, a term coined by Keel for the numerous encounters with the dark figures who harassed witnesses into keeping they're mouths shut.

In 2006, Keel admitted himself into a hospital after suffering a heart attack. He underwent successful heart surgery and was moved to a rehabilitation center. In 2009, Keel moved into a nursing home. He died on July 3, 2009.

The Giant Turle of Lost Lake

Dr. Fong Says:
I will never forget seeing his ancient back rise above the water.

I have something very important in the works for later this Summer. I am planning an expedition to one of the strangest places I have ever been.

When I was a young boy I was told a story about a giant turtle that lived in a small and secret lake deep in the northern wilderness.

In order to get to the lake where the giant turtle lived you had to paddle across a long deep lake and then portage across a narrow strip of land. You then had to paddle across another large but shallow lake and finally up a narrow channel to the turtle's lake.

The turtle's lake was small and round and black. The trees grew uncomfortably close on all sides. It was unnaturally deep and cold. At the bottom of this unnamed lake the turtle lived.

He is a giant and his huge shell has been seen rising above the surface of the water. His wake has also been seen as he moves around in the depths below.

Later this Summer I am planning to go back to this mysterious lake. I will be carrying camera and video equipment to document anything I may find.

Accompanying me will be will be my trusted friend Mustafa. He is an expert with kayaks and all things aquatic and should be able to guide us safely to the turtle's lake.

Our various camera/video/audiomen will follow us in; along with many unpaid interns/porters.

Once we arrive at the lake we will find a campsite near the banks of the lake and set up our turtle monitoring equipment. Complete measurements of the lake will be taken as well as water samples and countless photographs and videographs and audiographs.

Equipment Needed:

Light Kayaks
Camping Equipment
Cameras/Video/Audio Equipment
Scuba Equipment
Turtle Bait
Turtle Harpoon
Turtle Detection Equipment
Depth Charges
Life Insurance

Reader Submitted Weirdness: Demon Mothling Doppelgangers from a Planet Near Mars

Dr. Fong Says:
Get out Dr. Scott! It's a trap and all your friends are in on it. The moth people are trying to steal your mind while you sleep!

Dr. Scott (of Syracuse NY) said...

About 15 years ago in cookeville, Tennessee, I shared a house with three roommates. I was also active in exploring paranormal and psychic phenomenon. I'd had some strange encounters with moths, and when I meditated on them, I saw this figure... substantially the same as is being described here. I also recieved a name: Djerva. I could find no references to this name at the time (before Google!) Apparently, it's a Scandanavian name--I still don't know if it has a particular meaning.

One night, when everyone else was asleep, I got up and went to the kitchen for a glass of water. it was pitch black except for the light coming through the windows from a pole light on a side-street. As I stood there, the microwave oven beeped, and the timer set to 1:13 and started counting down. The oven did not turn on. I watched, frozen with creeped-out curiosity. When the timer reached zero, the display just went black as if nothing had happened. I felt as though I was being watched.

Later that week, I had come home from work, laid down for a nap, and awoken around 8:30 p.m. I put on my bathrobe and went down the hall to the kitchen where my friends mike and Michelle were talking. When I came around the corner, they both stopped talking and looked at me as if were painted blue or something. Mike said "How did you change clothes so fast?" I said, "I've been in my room for hours." Michelle said, "That wasn't you who just walked in and went down the hall?" (the side door we all used opened into the kitchen, opposite the hallway.)

They both began to go pale, and I asked them a few questions... they had both seen, out of the corner of their eyes while talking, someone tall like me, dressed darkly, come through the door and go down the hallway. Mike said he thought the figure was wearing a hat. I asked them whether either of them actually remembered the door opening and closing, and their eyes got wide. Neither of them did, and Michelle literally began to freak out.

A search of the house turned-up nothing unusual. I have had minor brushes with this same figure repeatedly over the years, but nothing so visual as what they described.

The following week, Mike encountered something in the dark hallway in the middle of the night that scared him so bad that he totally refused to talk about it, and he wasn't quite himself for weeks afterward.
