Samurai ghost boots in Japan

Samurai Ghost Boots Photo?

I came across this story while at work today, and I’m not quite sure what to make of it. Apparently a man took a photo of his daughter last summer, while they were living in Japan. Behind the girl, there appears to be a pair of boots and legs, and part of a shirt. People are […]

The Loch Ness Monster: Hoax Anniversary and Google Street View

So if you’ve used Google today (and if you haven’t, how do you manage?), you’ve no doubt seen the little animation commemorating the 81st anniversary of the publication of the most well known photo of the Loch Ness Monster, the so-called Surgeon’s Photo. Taken by Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson and published in 1934 , the photo seems […]

Woman smells bad fish when seeing ghosts

Woman Haunted by Fishy Smelling Ghost

How could I not blog about this? Some woman in England claims that she expereinces a bad fish smell right before anything bad happens. Oh, and that when she takes pictures in old buildings, she captures orbs! How remarkable! From The Inquisitor, with all of their signature non-proofread reporting intact. The living are often alerted to a […]

Moldy ghosts

Ghost Hunters Investigate Mold as Cause Of Paranormal Activity

Every now and then, I come across a story about paranormal research that gives me some hope that a few people out there are still taking things seriously and are conducting themselves in a scientific manner. These days, most people equate “fancy gadgets” with “scientific,” and that’s just not the case. Just because spirit boxes have all […]

Mountain Monsters: Fakest of the Fake Paranormal Shows?

My 7-year old son, God bless him, has recently taken an extreme interest in the paranormal, just like his dad. He’s got a bunch of age-appropriate books on the subject, with Bigfoot and ghosts being his favorite phenomena, but finding appropriate TV shows for him to watch is tough. He loves Finding Bigfoot and MonsterQuest, but […]

Yule Cat Slider

The Very Hungry Yule Cat of Iceland

Around this time of year, the inimitable Krampus tends to steal the spooky holiday spotlight. But that horned monster in league with Santa isn’t the only Christmas cryptid. In fact, he might not even be the worst. With the wonderfully Icelandic name of Jólakötturinn, the fanged Yule Cat is not a beast to be trifled with. In fact, when it […]

Bigfoot Blotter Slider

Police Blotter Fun with Bigfoot

Police blotters from other parts of the country are very different than police blotters here in New York City. Here, we get muggings, burglaries, attempted rapes, fights out in front of bars and nightclubs, vandalism, some really violent and scary stuff. But in Tennessee? Bigfoot getting the blame for some sort of ruckus. Plus lots […]

New Zealand Sea Monster

New Zealand Sea Monster Spotted on Google Earth

Google Earth is a blessing and a curse. Obviously it’s nice to see amazing satellite images of the Earth, and it’s awesome to be able to zoom in and see where we live or places we’ve never been to. Then again, there are people who are constantly finding UFOs, monsters, ghosts, and sea serpents in […]

Subtly Spooky: Paranormal Paintings

This post will be part personal disclosure, and part shameless self-promotion, so I hope you will indulge me… I have always been an artistic person, and my interest in painting and drawing goes back as far as my interest in the paranormal. From the time that I could read, I was finding evrey book I […]
