Dollars for the singing dead. [Apr. 8th, 2008|02:24 pm]
[mood |fullfull]
[music |Alive - Jekyll & Hyde]

One of the oldest accounts of ghosts is in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which shows dead people reappearing much as they did before death, including the style of dress.

I'm going to regret this... but have you ever has a visit from a ghost? I've had two, with the second recurring too often to count.


And this is awesome. You click and they give a DOLLAR per click for battered women! If you all clicked we would have over 800 dollars donated in one day, PLUS whatever your friends click if you pass it on.

And your video. :) Very obvious lipsynching. Cracked me up.

My son does the same thing!! He's always having conversations with my Mom who died when he was just a baby... I wonder if she's coming to visit, I figured he was just pretending but his responses are SO indicative of a real conversation, I really wonder.

You should write a book, this is all SO fascinating!! Do you get scared by horror movies? I realize that probably sounds like a stupid question but I'm really curious. lol. I can't handle ghost movies, it makes me more afraid when I do have encounters. I don't know. Hard to explain.

And that thing at the camp sounds JUST like something out of LOST! Crazy!!

What's The Paulding Light?

Horror movies piss me off, more than anything. XD I can't watch them for the same reason I can't watch a lot of campy Sci-Fi/B-Movies. I go all MST3K on them and pick them apart, and everyone watching with me gets annoyed. XD I enjoy the "Scary Movie" movies because they lampoon everything that's bad about horror flicks so well.

When it comes to horror in fiction, the most enjoyable source I've found is actually in manga - I read/collect the series "Ghost Hunt" by Shiho Inada and Fuyumi Ono, and I adore it to death. It keeps the fun aspect of fiction/fantasy while still having some sense of and respect for the actual paranormal.

The Paulding Light is a light that appears on most nights near Watersmeet, Michigan. The area is actually rather remote - when my group went, we traveled the right-of-way as far as we could on foot (it's blocked to cars), including through a hip-deep swamp, but we had to turn back because we eventually reached a sheer cliff. I am skeptical of the headlights/tail lights/warning lights theory because of how rapidly the light changed color, the variety of colors, and the amount of both horizontal and vertical motion that was involved the night we went. Our group went out with some equipment, but we had no solid conclusion. We got about five minutes of videotape footage before the battery on our video camera was drained, our flashlight batteries went dead, and our EMF (electromagnetic field) reader was fried by being overloaded that night. We were also cold and wet, because it was raining and we were forced to turn our Explorer off, as the battery in the Explorer was also being drained while it was running. All of our still photos were black, regardless of using night cameras or flash. All of the batteries were fully charged beforehand, and all of them (including the spares left in the vehicle) were dead the next morning. It was frustrating, and I'd like to go back again with more equipment, but it's a time-and-money thing for me.

Oh man, that must have been SO frustrating! Seems strange that all of your equiptment just went bad on you, too. Maybe whatever it is, if there is a presence there, doesn't want to be researched. lol

Actually its not oncommon for batteries to be drained by paranormal events. On the show Ghoast Hunters it happens sometimes. I know I saw ghoasts when I was younger. But I don't remember any of the encounters. It was to long ago. And they weren't scary encounters.
