The strange video of Elisa Lam's final moments of life

Elisa Lam was a 21-year-old student staying at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles .. She also succumbed to her fate there.. The story was a shock to the world: She was found dead in the Cecil's water tank. 

And now the weird death of Elisa Lam made the Cecil an even darker place than it already was.

The other night, Art Bell's website showcased a video of Elisa Lam in her final moments of life.. Though the video was online for some time now, Art Bell talking about it propelled it to instant popularity. 

It shows Lam on an elevator acting, for lack of a better word, strange. Some think she is battling a spirit or demon, others think the video is simply an example of her fragile sanity.. The four-minute security video was posted on YouTube (*I don't know by who, you'd think this was evidence??*) .. In the clip, Lam is frantically pushing elevator buttons as the door of the elevator stays open.. then she starts behaving bizarre..After these strange events on the elevator, Elisa Lam gained access to the rooftop of the Cecil Hotel. She climbed into the water tank of the hotel. She then died--and was found two weeks later .. The only reasons she even was found was because hotel guests were complaining of the water's taste and color--investigators found her body decomposing in the hotel's source of water.. 

In September, the UBC student's parents filed wrongful death litigation against the owners of the Cecil Hotel. After all, the water tank is in a restricted area, and it is sealed. Yet somehow she ended up being found dead in a place where, frankly, someone of her strength and size should not even be able to get to..  

The VIGILANT CITIZEN website did great work on a report concerning Lam, the dark history at the Cecil, and other weird things like the Lam death being similar to DARK WATER from 2005 and the fact that, after Lam's death, tuberculosis broke out on skid row in Los Angelas, near the Cecil Hotel, and the test kits used during those situations were named: 'LAM-ELISA'..

This video, along with the inclusion of her circumstances on paranormal websites across the Internet landscape, must be painful for the family already reeling in pain from the loss of her innocent life. 

But there are just some weird things about this video.. her behavior may be a result of a psychotic episode or drug use.. but the elevator doors not closing until she is gone? The fact her body was found somewhere that a person should not be able to get to? 

The Cecil's history is already frightening enough.. Add this to the mystery of the location.. And this one, in my opinion, is still unsolved--regardless of the experts and officials that called this death accidental.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
