Roswell UFO Was Not Of This Earth And There Were ET Cadavers: Ex-CIA Agent Says.
Right. Another headline that hints to answers, another article that shows no proof. To summarize, the CIA agent who worked for 10 years as the “first official liaison to the entertainment and publication industries,” walks into the Historical Intelligence Collection and peruses through a box marked Roswell. The contents, which he refuses to identify, convince him that aliens crashed in the New Mexico desert.
Why did the ex-CIA agent come out with this information? The same reason all these guys come out with “information.” I knew the reason before I found it. Then, I found it.
Brandon is currently promoting his book, “The Cryptos Conundrum,” a science fiction story about the history of Earth, contact with extraterrestrials and imagined cataclysmic events on our planet.
There’s always a book.
The man is certainly entitled to his opinions, and to use his super-secret spy guy past as a tool to sell books, but sadly there is no information here. In the end, his credentials add nothing to the veracity of a story which offers no proof.
Arthur Conan Doyle: Ghost Hunter.
Another trip to About.com’s paranormal section. Good article about some of Doyle’s unexplainable experiences…
About.com’s Paranormal Phenomena section can make for some interesting reading, whether you believe in the stuff or not. Yes, most of the contributions there are probably rubbish but even then you still get a ghost story, and everybody likes those.
They did post this collection of The World’s Most Haunted Places that looks pretty interesting. Most of the places I’d recognized from
other sources television shows, but there were a few I’d not heard of before.
It all makes me long for the old In Search Of… Which, according to this note on tvshowsondvd.com may be out by the end of the year on DVD!
Another treasure off the Project Gutenberg feed: Photographic Amusements (circa. 1896). Think of it as a turn of the century guide to photographic special effects. But please remember:
As Mr. Woodbury stated in his introduction to the original edition of this book, in order to avoid misunderstanding, it would be well to explain at the outset that it is not intended as an instruction book in the art of photography in any sense of the word. It is assumed that the reader has already mastered the technical difficulties of photographic practice and is able to make a good negative or print.
Subjects include magic photographs, spirit photography, electric photographs, distorted images, freak pictures by successive exposures, and many others. I was drawn to the spirits. Here are the photo’s used as examples, and a link to read more about it.
Not the scariest of images, but interesting reading.
Hanging off a branch atop a row of bushes that line the driveway is another branch, this one from the pine tree above and in the shape of a man with no head. An omen from the majestic pine that my decapitation is imminent?
The last thing that fell out of that tree was the dried up husk of a squirrel that had died up there some time ago (from the looks of it). Did it ignore a warning too?
I’m staying away from that tree – it has obviously gone bad.
