While details are scarce at the hour, the MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT radio broadcast tonight was frightening, poignant, and edge-of-seat dramatic.

Bell, who normally says that he has ample amounts of protection to keep him and his family in Pahrump safe from intruders and less than good people, was a potential victim tonight of violence during his broadcast!

While some reported hearing gunshots during the show, it is unknown yet as to whether the audio was clear enough to make it out.

At that point, very intense and dramatic broadcasting began..

According to Bell himself, multiple shots were fired around his property while he was on the air this evening.. MORE: According to Bell, his neighbor informed him that the gunfire was happening. Even more, it appears the shots were fired AT one of Art Bell's buildings..


Bell left he air multiple times this evening to tend to personal affairs, the motion detectors around his studio were set off..

During the initial moment when Bell said we have a 'little bit of  situation right here,' he delayed his broadcasting using disco bumper music..  Themla Houston belted out the famed song, 'don't leave me this way' and it seemed somehow extra poignant..  When he came back, he said there were 'shots fired,' and Bell speculated that someone driving by potentially drunk did it. Police were on the way. He reported immediately that he and his family were safe..


Bell said, "we are very very well armed and my wife is a really good shot."

Bell continued the interview with guest William Forstchen and the topic of the potential end of the world due to a nation-power going nuts.

A little further into the interview, Bell again played dramatic music while he checked to see what made his back sensor light activate during his broadcast.

One user on BELLGAB correctly points out,
That was some of the most intense scary radio I've ever heard. It was like the War of the Worlds broadcast when the aliens first strike and they keep playing music in between crazy reports.

The scariest thing to me is this happened right in the middle of tonight's broadcast like it was timed. If it's kids playing around in the desert, I don't care how drunk or high you are, you aren't going to be shooting up houses for fun.

Intense radio or not, it also appears that this it was a potentially very dangerous night for the talk show host..


At the end of the broadcast this evening, Bell signed off with his traditional song titled the same name of his radio show, saying to listeners, "Strange night to be sure." He said went on to thank every person associated with his new show as the melancholy music played the night out..

DRAMA in the desert ends peacefully--but potentially could have had very opposite results..





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…


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 …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
