Mysterious Shrieking Sound Frustrates Oregon Community

Mysterious Shrieking Sound Frustrates Oregon Community : Dave Nemeyer, fire marshal of the Forest Grove Fire and Rescue in Forest Grove, Oregon, told ABC News that he first learned of the strange noise after a local resident recorded and shared a video of it on the city’s Facebook page

One person describes the noise as the sound of someone needing change their brakes.. Another said that few have heard it and it’s been impossible to find the source, though gas lines and water valves have been ruled out..

If you don’t know already, there have been countless noises like this happening throughout the world.
And now the newest addition: Oregon.

Calling Linda Howe!!

White balloon

First off, if this publishes I will be amazed. It is the fourth time I attempted to write it and publish, but each time there is an error and it will not save or post. Other posts have been published without a problem.

Recall a few days ago when I posted that article about the ‘haunted balloon’ that followed a grieving mom at her son’s funeral? There is still ongoing debate as to whether the floating white balloon was just being guided by wind. Or if it was being guided by a hand beyond the grave.

At the end of the post, I didn’t opine. Paranormal events are only inane until you’re involved with one. I will never want to tell a grieving mother that the message she found comfort in was just useless coincidence.

And then I had a dream.
Literally. A dream two nights ago ..
Last night, perhaps thinking about this balloon too much, it showed up in my own dream! It floated around me, floated behind me.. At one point I recall in the dream the balloon actually beginning to act very independently …

NEW YORK TIMES: THE VERY DARK MAGIC OF ‘THE WITCH’ The story is...

NEW YORK TIMES: THE VERY DARK MAGIC OF ‘THE WITCH’ The story is written by Mekado Murphy.A part of the reason for linking this, mainstream newspapers and reporters rarely praise horror. This movie, however, has been getting widespread attention not only for the scare factor it presents, but also the historical context in which it was created. Robert Eggers spent lots of time researching and visiting museums. The movie, it’s said, is true history of the time it was created..And even Stephen King said it was one of the scarier movies he’s seen..This from the NYTIMES:The writer and director Robert Eggers, a native of southern New Hampshire, dug deep into New England history for his debut feature, which unnerved audiences at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and earned the filmmaker the best director prize.“Growing up in New England, you can’t help but be reminded of its past, with its dilapidated colonial farms and graveyards in the middle of the woods,” Mr. Eggers said by Skype. “I had a …

CUTE SELFIE MOMENT GONE WRONG: KILLS BABY DOLPHINReal news from...

CUTE SELFIE MOMENT GONE WRONG: KILLS BABY DOLPHINReal news from Buenos Aires.. James Joiner from the DAILY BEAST reporting:Two Franciscana dolphins were ripped from the waves near an Argentinan resort last week, then manhandled to shore, where they were passed around a clutching mob seeking cute selfie moments. In the process, at least one of the intelligent, playful cetaceans died from the experience. Franciscana, or La Plata, dolphins are unable to spend as long out of the water as their larger brethren.“At least one of these dolphins suffered a horrific, traumatic and utterly unnecessary death, for the sake of a few photographs,” a spokesperson from the World Animal Protection group told ABC in Australia, condemning the despicable incident. “This terribly unfortunate event is an example of the casual cruelty people can inflict when they use animals for entertainment purposes.”And then get this:

After being pet and pawed at by dozens of people, one of the small creatures was found di…

An asteroid is about to pass so close to Earth that we’ll see it in the sky

An asteroid is about to pass so close to Earth that we’ll see it in the sky: This is how the news agency linked reports this information: Don’t worry, we aren’t about to go extinct like the dinosaurs. That said, a 30-meter wide asteroid will be passing Earth so close early next month that we might be able to see it in the sky, NASA has announced. And it might even hit Earth at some point in 2017.

This is disingenuous.. First of all science news–the real news–is often placed on back burners to lesser important things.. This asteroid, though small, is important. It should not be mocked.
We are about to potentially see one of the closest shaves ever. We may see it with out naked eye..
And what do agencies do? Make bad jokes about the dinosaurs becoming extinct along with a snippet sentence that we may be HIT WITH THE SAID ASTEROID during 2017..
Not a laugh matter.
The idea of this is all too common as of late. And yet here we are existent on a planet that seems to be in denial that eventually…

‘Haunted’ balloon comforts grieving mother at son’s funeral

‘Haunted’ balloon comforts grieving mother at son’s funeral : Joy Ganda Vibar-Alamares was grieving for her son Trebby in the Philippines. After the balloon floats in a straight line to her, it changes direction and goes around her back.

There is debate online: A message from beyond the grave or a gust of wind just creating a beautiful coincidence caught on video by the grieving mother’s sister in law?

Debate away.
But remember .. When you have a brush with the paranormal, only YOU can decide if it was real or not.

THE PONTYPOOL CONDITION?A few months ago I found a surprise gem...

THE PONTYPOOL CONDITION?A few months ago I found a surprise gem on Netflix: Pontypool. It’s a good horror movie from 2008 directed by Bruce McDonald and written by Tony Burgess, based on his novel Pontypool Changes Everything.. the movie follows a few radio hosts in a small town where a strange virus begins robbing people of their ability to talk..I thought of Pontypool today when I saw a very real and frightening headline about a syndrome that is doing the same thing as the unseen force in the horror movie: Robbing people not of memories but their ability to talk. Period..How scary reality can be.Read this from the Associated Press on the virus, being reported globally:WASHINGTON (AP) — A mysterious brain disorder can be confused with early Alzheimer’s disease although it isn’t robbing patients of their memories but of the words to talk about them.It’s called primary progressive aphasia, and researchers said Sunday they’re finding better ways to diagnose the little-known syndrome. Th…

King Henry and his turkey leg that never existed

I am going to add my voice to the countless others already clamoring about King Henry VIII and his famous turkey leg painting that, apparently on this timeline, never was..A little explanation is in order.I have written countless times about ‘time sips’ and the Mandela Effect here, here, and here, just to name a few.The full conundrum can be found on the Mandela Effect website–this website may also spark interest that you will keep reading the rest. Basically, countless people remember seeing this painting with King Henry holding up a giant leg of fowl.. And countless people become shaken when they are realized to be wrong about that very fact. There is no such painting. Nothing in pop culture that resembles the memory we all have.. and nothing which can answer the reason why that very memory includes the same exact details..I have been searching, for about a year, for something to disprove my proof of the Mandela Effect: This very painting. This entire King Henry issue hit me much ha…

Another glitch in the matrix

The comedian Sinbad was not in a movie where he played a genie. I am sorry to say.. A few people I talked to remember him fondly being in the movie Shazaam. It came out around the same time as Kazaam with Shaq.And all of that is plain wrong.Shazaam did not exist. Shaq did play a genie in a tremendously unmemorable and awful movie. But Sinbad did not..This is the latest ‘glitch in the matrix’ that even got me.
I recall this myself. I remember him in the outfit. I don’t quite remember the name of the film as some others do, but I am very clear on my memory of him being in an awful un-funny movie when I was younger.All of this is fodder for crowds of people who have a new-found appreciation of the Mandela Effect. Every day.For those yet unaware, or those who do not quite know the label to call their strange memory lapses or sudden shocks to learn that reality is different from what they thought, it is called the Mandela Effect. There are people–and lots of them including Stafire Tor on an…

A real life haunting

A little ghost story–one that hits a bit closer to home than anything else I have written.
Tonight, my wife and I took my son Ayden to a birthday party for a classmate at the Ashland Pennsylvania ELKS–sorry for the bad press (or good depending on your point of view) I am giving them on this matter..The party was fine. It took place in the basement level bowling alley. Kids had a blast.. the cake was fine. And the pizza was as it should be.There was one moment, though.. One strange event.
You see, the bathroom in the basement is unisex. So both genders shared their turns using it.. At one point, my son wanted to wash his hands. We made him wait because all three of us heard people in there. We figured it would be proper and kind to allow them to finish their business before barging in.The seconds turned into minutes.. no one was coming out. So I decided to go in.. 
No one..
no one was there.
Not a soul.The bathroom was empty and quiet. The voices we heard and shadows we saw–all there of us–…

Thinking about an old friend who lost his life to cancer last year

Thinking about an old friend who lost his life to cancer last year. Every now and then his face pops up in my mind.. and his favorite song, ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN, does as well..

I get comforted by this song.
But.. what does not comfort me is the lack of messages from beyond the grave. He always said he may try to send me one from the great beyond.
Perhaps that violates the rules of space and time. Or .. space and time do not exist.

I just don’t know this cold, dark, and snowy Saturday night in February. I just don’t know.

Game changer ..

Developing now..

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.

THE FOREVER BRAIN

It’s an old legend.. Walt Disney saved his brain and froze it ..
I am sure you heard that one.
It’s really not true–at least not to the best of our rational knowledge. But a new truth has emerged similar in nature–this time it’s real.

For the first time, scientists have been able to  cryogenically freeze a brain and then revive it.

Consider that for a bit .. and then really consider the positive and even negative ramifications. Playing God with a trump card.

Here are the details:  Researchers from 21st Century Medicine (21CM) managed to freeze the brain of a rabbit using a technique known as Aldehyde-stabilized cryopreservation (ASC). Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate Robert McIntyre led the team. He wrote this in a press release:
Using a combination of ultrafast chemical fixation and cryogenic storage, it is the first demonstration that near  perfect, long-term structural preservation of an intact mammalian brain is achievable
The UK EXPRESS reporter Sean Martin writes,

The Kraang!

Forgive me.. But the super bowl was awful.. The commercials were terrible. Lady Gaga gave me the chills but they wore off before halftime..

Nonetheless one worthwhile moment occurred when the trailer for the upcoming June release of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2 came out.. It had brief glimpses of Rock Steady.. It had Bebop.. And yes it even showed off a small short snippet of the Kraang..


Nothing about Baxter Stockman but he'll be present as well.

I am very excited about this movie.. My son is too.

Can't wait for June..

The trailer here.

HEATHER WADE REVEALED

'Redacted" never showed her face on Bellgab. Since being the host of MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT, Heather Wade continued the tradition of shadowy mystique..

Something may have changed her mind this weekend. On Facebook, Heather Wade unredacted herself to show her face to the world at large..

Her biggest fear was revealing her face.
Perhaps now that she did, she will own the show more than she has since Art Bell departed in 2015..

Midnight strikes.
And a new voice--and face--of paranormal radio is speaking..

Japan's Sakurajima volcano erupts some 50km from nuclear plant

This troubling developing story breaking today: Japan’s Sakurajima volcano, about 50km from the Sendai nuclear station, has erupted. Japan’s Meteorological Agency has issued an orange warning not to approach the volcano.

Art Bell sitdown with Michael Vandeven

After months of intrigue and controversy since Art Bell left his radio show MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT, he sat down on the GABCAST with BellGab's Michael Vandeven..

Vandeven opened the show with a hope the program will become one you can  listen to 20 years from now. He succeeded in that regard. The show is an instant classic in time.

Vandeven's well-paced interview opened with lighter fare--talk of Trump and Sanders. From there it delved deep into the issues that caused Bell to leave his program late 2015 after a series of incidents scared him from the program--incidents well documented by the HORROR REPORT..



THE REGRET

Among the many revelations on the program, the biggest may have been Bell's regret over his initial words the night that a gun shot occurred near him as he walked to his studio before a program.  It was that night that Bell took to Facebook to announce he was done radio. Finished. For good. Even Artbell.com posted a 'hangs it up for the last time' posting.…

Perils of small asteroids

2013 TX68 will make a pass by earth on March 5. It my be as far as 9 million miles away--safe. Or 11,000 mile away--uh oh.. At this point the calculators of such things are unsure and not able to give a definite answer.

It is considered a small asteroid. But at 100 feet in diameter, it is 2 times bigger than the asteroid that shocked Chelyabinsk Russia a few years back. Remember that day? We were watching an asteroid SAFETY bypass earth when the Russian city was it without notice causing damage and injuries? That day.. Sweeper effect perhaps.

This asteroid, discovered October 2013, is not expected to hit the planet in March. However there are some potential dates when the planet should watch for skyfalls... September 2017, and then 2046 and 2097.

Recall one thing when considering a potential 11,000 mile distance: The moon is 238,000 miles away. That would make a 2013 TX68 flyby 95% closer than the moon particularly uncomfortable.. 

All Ides of March eyes on the 5th. Then we can breath unt…

THE DEMON HOUSE OF INDIANA DEMOLISHED

Do you recall the exorcism house in Indiana? It made a ton of news a few years back. The HORROR REPORT chronicled much of the media circus involving the Ammons house back in 2012..  Including the news in October  2014 of that year that Zak Bagans bought the house to film a documentary about paranormal activity that was supposedly taking place within.

Today I learned that a piece of paranormal lure has been demolished. Literally..

The Latoya Ammons  house has been knocked down.

As reported by the INDY STAR, a paper that did its due diligence and brought the story of the Ammons house to the world, reports, that it was Bagans who made the call:

Bagans interviewed numerous police officials, a former DCS worker and others for his documentary. He would not say whether he interviewed Ammons or her family.

The home is where Ammons and her mother, Rosa Campbell, said many of the strange things happened.

Bagans told IndyStar his reason for destroying the home will be presented in the documentary. He …

WHO YOU GONNA CALL?

The newest GHOSTBUSTERS movie gets released July 15 2016.. The website for the movie is released some still images showcasing scenes from the upcoming film..




A number of critics have been very unkind to the all female cast .. I am looking forward to it. .
Normally remakes are not favorable to viewing habits. In this situation an exception will be made.

FLASH: ART BELL WILL BE ON THE GABCAST

It has been a wild few months since Art Bell abruptly left MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT. Since that time, current host Heather Wade has been forced into a muddy position of fighting with members of the message board she was frequented, BellGab.Com.

Even more, Bell himself used Facebook to disavow himself of the message board, calling it a meaner place filled with trolls. Wade and Steve Warner, Bateman on Bellgab, even had a very public fight in which Warner accused Wade of repeatedly calling him begging him to do MIDNIGHT. Wade countered back that she was trying to prove Warner wouldn't do it. Public airing of laundry.. whether dirty or not..



Wild indeed.



And now even more wild given the news that Bell himself will appear on the Gabcast this coming Thursday February 4, 2016.

Bell took to Bellgab.com for the occasion, saying,
I said I would do the Gab Cast and I will, however if it is filled with people attacking my Family or truly foul stuff I won't be there long. I hope this can be done…

Coin toss Caucus and the clown from 5th Avenue

Excitement has been building for....oh my God, about four years now? The primary season is upon us.. the groundhog says an early spring.  Donald Trump's hair saw its shadow in Iowa. And despite Ted Cruz's inability to score a kiss from his daughter, he won in a surprise victory. Trump down for the count? Probably not.. he surged late in Iowa and banked more on New Hampshire and South Carolina. And really, Iowa hasn't picked a winner in more than 8 years (Santorum 12 and Huckabee 08) ...

That is not stopping the media pile on. They propped him up for ratings for months.. and now they are going to try to take him down. New York papers first.

The stunning headline and photo from the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS is amazing.. it's really not journalism, but it is showcasing a vibrant style that only the UK papers have made their own.



The paper also forfeited journalistic standards with the employment of this sentence: The outspoken mogul suffered a “yuge” loss in the Hawkeye State’s ca…

The 33-year-old photo, signed sealed and delivered

In May of 2015, I posted a photograph of my son Ayden in a store that was closing in my mall. In the article, I mentioned how similar the photo looked to one taken of me, when I was three years old, in Centralia Pennsylvania.  I have the photograph of myself.  I did not publish it due to copyright issues. It was from a book called SLOW BURN, a 1980s photodocumentary with pictures taken by Renée Jacobs.

For those who don't know much about Centralia, an underground mine fire started decades ago. A series of bad missteps from officials and twists and turns of neighborly breakdowns occurred, and the town went from 2000 people to ... just about zero. The town has also become a tourist attraction, it's home to the famed graffiti highway, and the movie SILENT HILL was based on it. An upcoming project promises a television series based on the town.



THIRTY YEARS LATER.

I constantly peruse through historical documents, not only of life itself but of my own personal existence. I can be nost…

Cauliflower in space

In case you have not heard, there has been cauliflower found in Mars. Well not really. But rest assured, before you listen to people are using this SMITHSONIAN article as 'proof' of aliens, there is some interesting scientific theory behind what the SPIRIT ROVER found in 2008. Or maybe proof that the movie THE MARTIAN was actually a documentary..

Nonetheless here is the news from the red planet. Arizona University scientists Jack Farmer and Steven Ruff say that we my be on to evidence of past ice on the planet. (Maybe ice now too, people?!) The cauliflowerish stuff looks a it like structures formed around geysers on the planet Earth. These deposits on Mars are called opaine silica, and they were noticed on the planet in the Gustev crater. Wonder what Martians called that crater. Wonder what Martians called their planet...? Nonetheless... The layers ok Ike heads of cauliflower coming out of the ground. In this case the very red Martian ground.

The prospects are enormous.. This co…
