Flying Witches of Mexico!

On January 16, 2004 a young Mexican police officer named Leonardo Samaniego was attacked by a witch. It sounds crazy, but from watching the taped interview Samaniego gave immediately following the occurrence, and seeing how he was literally trembling with fear and adrenaline, well, it gives the whole thing a touch of credibility. Samaniego was on routine patrol in his cruiser when it happened. It was so late the streets were pretty much empty, an easy night for a cop by the sound of things. Then he saw a black figure drop from a tree and hover off the ground. The figure flew onto his car and frantically scratched at the windshield trying to get at him.

He explains it best himself in this lengthy quote:

"It was a woman… all dressed in black that fell from the tree but she didn't touch the ground, just remained floating several feet from the ground. I saw her very well and then she landed softly on the ground and stood there looking at me. She was trying to cover her face from the lights of the car, I think they were bothering her. I could see two big black eyes on her, completely black without eyelids, and her skin was dark brown. She was all dressed in black with cloak and cape like a witch and she seemed very upset by the lights.

"As soon as I realized it was a kind of woman being, or a witch, very strange standing there trying to cover her face, she threw herself against my car very fast, falling on the car and hitting the windshield. She was flying very fast and it took only a second to hit the windshield glass. I was so shocked by this action that I put the car in reverse and pushed the accelerator trying to get away while requesting backup assistance by radio.

"It was a woman with big black eyes, everything was black, no eyelids. Her skin was dark brown and her expression was horrible. She was furiously trying to get me with her claws while I was running away in reverse calling desperately for backup assistance to any units around. When I finally hit the end of the street, I was so shocked that I covered my eyes and then I fainted."

Gone to Rune!

No its not a typo, even though this blog is riddled with them!

I've had the Ralph Blum set for a year now and haven't really put much time into it. Thats all gonna change!

Using a tools for readings was never something that appealed to me. Tarot cards, Angel Cards etc seemed to be the way to go until I felt a pull towards Runes. No one seems to be using them here in Ireland so its not easy to get advice.

The runes themselves feel lovely in the hand and something about them is just right for me. Its a case of reading the book and really getting a feel for them.

Wish me luck!

Documentable Urban Legends

I was thinking about Urban Legends recently and thinking that maybe ones like Bloody Mary could be tried and documented. Obviously for those who think there might be something in it this might seem dangerous ..... but sure its the only way to really see whats going on. Too many of these are keep alive just based on Hollywood and stories from a friend of a friends's cousins barber!

If anyone knows of any suitable ones then drop me a comment.

Mobile Ghost Hunter

Spooked by the unexplained sounds in your basement followed by flickering lights? If you suspect the spooky presence of a tortured spirit in your midst, you're not alone. The Discovery Channel wants to make a ghost hunter out of you by offering ghost detecting downloads that can pick up paranormal activity. According to the site, the detector constantly reads fluctuations of Electro Magnetic Fields (E.M.F) in the atmosphere, then sends the information back to Wiretown along with your name and ZIP code. This helps them plot the location of all E.M.F. results reported on the national Most Haunted Live map. To get your own ghost-busting tool, you have to sign up to receive "Most Haunted" Mobile content by texting the keyword BOO to 99799. Before you do though, keep in mind that you'll be charged a $1 monthly subscription fee for the service, as well as any data transfer that reports E.M.F activity around you. Unfortunately, if you want to turn your mobile into a ghost hunting device, you'll need to be on Cingular since service on Verizon or Alltel is not available. Check the list of phones too since only a handful of Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, and Nokia models are compatible.

No use to me because it doesn't cover Ireland but its a fun idea.

Fresh Nessie Sighting

Seems we have some fresh Nessie footage:

A Yorkshire man claims to have shot a video capturing the mythical Loch Ness monster. Gordon Holmes, a 55-year-old lab technician, was filming the lake where he captured an animal he says was about 45 feet long, moving at about 6 mph, on his camera.

"I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing," said Holmes. The video has stirred debate in the cryptozoology community, as the quality of the tape is fairly good.

Marine biologist Adrian Shine, who has watched the video, says it is some of the best footage he has ever seen.

Music Video: Kopek

Just sharing this music video with as many people as I can. It was done by a guy I work with for a band KOPEK - feedback would be nice but spread the word!

The secret is in the dreaming

According to Nuri Sözkesen: To make an invention you need innovation. To have an innovation you need an imagination, to have an imagination you need dreams. So the source of innovation is dreaming.

Sözkesen is an eccentric who opened Turkey's first UFO museum, who plans to travel to space in 2009 and who has launched a children's clothing and towel line called siriusUFO.

My Helmet!

There are a few people in the Paranormal Community who turn their elitist noses up at popular cultural references to the world we deal with - I am not one of them. Personally I love the likes of Ghostbusters not only because it was a good movie but it served to highlight the Paranormal and open it up for everyone to take an interest in. I'd never consider myself a Ghostbuster as I can find the term a little disrespectful when it comes to the workings of things but when it comes to kicking back or a casual chat its all fine by me.

Here's a pic of my helmet, I was in with my wife getting a scan of our baby (due in a few weeks) and one of the nurses commented that she'd seen us in before. She then said it was the helmet that she recognised!
