Does anyone else watch any of the ghost hunter or true ghost story stuff on TV?

I like A Haunting on Discovery Channel, but it's all re-enactment. And the one with the team of ghost hunters who are plumbers in their regular job (Ghost Hunters) is okay, but sometimes it's so much about the people on the ghost hunting team it's annoying. And the one with the team of British ghost hunters (Most Haunted) just annoys me, I hate their dependence on mediums instead of more objective evidence. Frankly, I think they're probably fakes.

What do you all think? Or am I the only one who watches these?

This just happened. I have no idea what it was.

I was sitting in the middle room on the loveseat. Kero was sitting next to me. Claudia had wandered off through the door to the living room. I was reading and drinking a glass of wine, quieting my mind to go to bed.

Or maybe just prolonging a day that has been neither good nor bad, and tomorrow could be worse, so why go to sleep just yet, if you know what I mean.Collapse )

Oh, having worked in the SuperDome and actually felt "ickies" a few times in the darker, less-travelled areas, this really found me interested.

I wanted to share with everyone...

An interesting site.

http://anomalies-unlimited.com/

Some of it falls into the "get out your aluminum foil hat" category, but is nontheless an entertaining read.


Edit: This is the site where I found the headstones of Russian gangsters that were so interesting.

I am not going to say that I put this occurrence down to something supernatural. There is certainly a very real world explanation for it.

I wish I knew for sure exactly what it was.Collapse )

So this past weekend my mom & I went to Austin. We did some walking around, went to museums, and (ee!) went to visit the Texas state Cemetery where historical and occasionally useful Texans are interred.

The cemetery also has some lovely memorials to fallen veterans, and one to Texans who perished in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

The September 11 memorial is a beautiful curve of native granite, that wraps around 2 girders brought from the New York site. It has the date, the times, and the locations on panels inside the curve, and the girders stand on a round granite slab, with a Texas star engraved in it.

By the time we got there, the girders had been in the sun for several hours. We all know what happens to steel when you leave it outside, in the sun, during July in Texas, right? It turns into something that could be effectively used to sear meat.

Being a curious creature, I decided I had to put my hand on the girders.

They were cold.

I was excited to have a story to relate, but also very unnerved by the experience.
Here is a link, from Snopes, of all places, about the story I mentioned in my comment about the Alamo hauntings, of a woman dancing with the devil in a nightclub in San Antonio. Apparantly it is a common story, but still very cool. And if you ever go by the bar, which is closed, it is a tad on the creepy side.

Also for another bit of San Antonio lore, I found a story about the Donkey Lady. It isn't the best written story, but at least you get the idea.

This another Donkey Lady site I found, with several interesting stories

http://lonestar.texas.net/~tstevens/CS/donkey.htm

This site also talks about how you used to be able to call the Donkey Lady. I think the number was at 222-LADY. I believe it was just a phone that still was hooked up to an old system but it made a few strange noises that could have a donkey sound to them then it would click in a way that sounded like horse hooves. I used to call it every now and then when I was bored.

Shadowlands Haunt Index for Texas says the Alamo is haunted.

Specifically, it states, "Cold spots and a feeling of melancholy can be felt throughout the Fort. 189 Alamo defenders and at least 1200 Mexican soldiers fought and died here in San Antonio, many without the benefit of a proper burial leaving a lot of lost souls in search of a eternal resting place, thus making San Antonio one of the most haunted cities in America."


I just want to throw my $.02 in, and say that each time I've been there, I haven't felt any kind of single haunt, or anything uncomfortable.

Each time I've been, since it happened the first time when I was about 9 or 10, I will go over by a wall, and wait. After a few minutes, I can no longer hear the people around me, and I get a sense of timelessness, and of being outside the present. I get a distinct feeling that the walls themselves have a long memory, and they will share what they know, if you are patient.

A tidy and comprehensive Mothman writeup.


Upon further reading, I now believe West Virginia has exceeded its 'critter' quota. It's odd how many cryptos they seem to have.
