Ah, nothing says summer like the smell of BBQ wafting through the air, the sounds of kids playing in the pool, afternoon thunderstorms and freaky, bloated,mysterious carcasses washed up on the beach. It really is becoming a summer tradition, this time with a new one popping up on the shore of the East River in New York. The “official” consensus is that it’s a pig, which is pretty remarkable considering pigs generally don’t have claws. A reluctant Loren Coleman has the rest of the story of That Bloated Beast Under Brooklyn Bridge. On a much gentler (and less disgusting) note, Beachcombing brings us tales of Victorian encounters with Mutant Hares, Modern Satyrs and Centaurs. Being Victorian, the witnesses in all cases reacted exactly as you would expect, giving a discreet shriek and running ladylike away from the strange creatures. In an encounter with a giant mutant rabbit, one woman defied her upbringing and actually struck the oncoming beast with her parasol. Then, we presume, she shrieked and ran away.
UFO Magazine’s Larry Bryant wants to see the elusive box full of Roswell secrets that former CIA agent Chase Brandon claims he saw. Supposedly, via the Freedom of Information Act, the contents of that box should be released to him and anyone else curious enough to file a request with the CIA. While it’s a worthy endeavor, we think it’s highly unlikely the request will be granted. Whether that is because the CIA will conveniently lose the files or because it simply doesn’t exist in the first place is the question of the day. UFO Iconoclasts delve deep (really deep) into the nature of UFOs and wonder about the possibility of Quantum UFOs: Entanglement?
There seems to be a serious lack of communication going on between the “Chasing UFOs” crew and the NatGeo channel because the show’s crew complains that they were not aware of the ominous sounding “major shift in programming flavor” for the channel and say that NatGeo is less concerned with the truth than with entertainment value. NatGeo is trying to mop up the publicity disaster by saying basically that the crew of the show knew what they were signing up for. We think they should just be sent to their respective corners to take a timeout and think about what they’ve done.
After years of ridicule and being dismissed as a party trick, hypnosis is now attracting attention from scientists because its effects are very real and can be proven. Recent research has discovered that during a brain scan if a person is asked to fake being hypnotized, the resulting brain activity is very different than that of a person who is genuinely hypnotized. Meanwhile, there’s a good chance you’ll run into hypnotists and scientists alike at the 55th Annual Convention of the Parapsychological Association in Durham, NC.
There’s nothing quite like reading about lost civilizations to really make you feel your mortality. What happened to the huge cities of these ancient people? Oftentimes, the civilization that abandoned these locations were advanced, which makes it even more puzzling. Did they simply move on to be closer to food and water sources? Were they conquered by invaders? Was there something more sinister behind the disappearances? It seems that just when archaeologists have settled on a date when we humans truly began to be civilized, more evidence surfaces (literally) to prove otherwise. Archaeologists uncover Palaeolithic ceramic art dating back to the last Ice Age that redefines our timeline and knocks the discovery of ceramics back several thousand years. Lastly, the Pelicanist reviews Nick Redferns The Pyramids and the Pentagon which deals with the notion of ancient advanced civilizations and ancient artifacts and their impact on modern times: Pyramid Selling. The Pelicanist calls it “cleverly written” and says there is something for skeptics and believers both.
Loren Coleman shares a story from artist Jeff H. Johnson concerning reports of wildmen seeking revenge for the killing of their kind in Vietnam. There is an equally disturbing story in the comments about US soldiers in Vietnam having to recover bodies quickly because “apes” would come out of the forest and eat them. As the commenter says, “there are no apes in Vietnam”. Coleman points out that there could very well be a lot more of these sorts of stories from that part of the world but we will likely never hear them. Forteania bids happy birthday to Momo the Missouri Monster – 40 yrs On. The tall, hairy, smelly and infamously dog-eating creature was spotted only during a brief period in 1972, but Missourians haven’t forgotten him.
Want to give your brain a jolt? Consider this: you may be asleep and dreaming right this moment. Brain Pickings tells us that it is very likely and that with way our brains work and the nature of dreaming, it could be impossible to discern the difference between reality and dreaming at times. There is no real way to tell. We’d hope that our brains would come up with something a bit more interesting than the mundane details of our daily lives though. It’s a bit frightening to realize how easily our brains are manipulated, and on a more serious note Loren Coleman gives us another example of this as he takes an unconventional look at the bigger picture surrounding the recent Aurora tragedy. The sensationalism of the story has saturated the media resulting in some very defined images being imprinted on our cultural conscious already. The fallout from the tragedy casts a long shadow over pop culture and may augur further developments in Aurora: Synchromystic Wonderland.
Canada seems to be the most recent UFO hotspot with an average of 3 sightings reported each day. Ontario seems to be getting the most attention though, according to this study. Break out the Barry White album, it’s time for Part 2 of Eros & Ufos: The Repressed Sexual Aspect of Mystical Experiences (Part 2). Sexual repression has always led to troublesome results throughout history and and alien abduction may be yet another result. Intrepid Magazine’s Red Pill Junkie wonders if alien abductions are related to the same repressed energy that is theorized to be the cause of poltergeist activity. It would certainly explain the popularity of UFO reports involving tall, beautiful Venusians in the 1950s and 60s.
In 1979, a Scottish forestry worker Robert Taylor ventured into the woods off of a highway in Dechmont Law. He encountered a saucer-shaped craft on the ground and was attacked by two metal spiked spheres that dragged him toward the ship. He awoke later with torn pants and was unable to talk. The “official” explanation for his strange experience? Venus! Not only was the planet responsible for his sighting but it also apparently triggered a seizure and hallucinations, despite the fact that local police found evidence that something had landed in that spot. We suppose that all the weather balloons were grounded that day. In another infamous case, the powers that be took quite a different tactic of disinformation and ordered the main eyewitness to continue spreading his tale of the The Aztec UFO and Psy-Ops. Apparently, what he reported seeing (a crashed UFO with several dead aliens) was so outlandish that they figured he was doing a pretty good job spreading disinfo himself.
Frogmen stalked the banks of the Little Miami River in Loveland, Ohio in 1955 and were reported in three separate incidents. The creatures were described as tall, bipedal frogs and in one incident, one of them seemed to be brandishing a metal wand. No official explanation was ever given but it’s interesting to note that “frogmen’ were a part of local Native American lore long-before the modern sightings. Beachcombing has a report of a 1980 encounter with The Trolls That Tuck You In from 1980 and the most unbelievable part of the story is that the witness went right to sleep after being tucked into bed by several tiny people that mysteriously appeared in her hotel room. And on a final note, Paranthropology Vol. 3 No. 3 Now Available to Download.

About Admin

Since my very first sighting of a pretty large, silent and very bizarre object up in the sky (which I knew for sure was not a plane etc.), and that was around the age of 15, I started down the path of becoming very interested and then apart of paranormal phenomenon and doing investigations when I could. There had been and still is, many paranormal related events that have happened to me. This blog is my launching point to share it all. Other than all that, I'm just a guy who has been geeking it out with computers since 1986...the good old days when computers had character! I am also a guitar player for more than 20 years who has always been into and plays metal. 1980s, early 90's style metal. Aside from all that, I am very much into amateur radio (shortwave, HAM radio and so on). There's a lot more that I'm interested in, in life of course. I'm a person who gets into a pretty mixed bag of interesting things in life!
