Wednesday, January 27, 2010 gets its belly rubbed! has been a little project I've been working on with big hopes. So for the last week I've been giving it so much needed attention. Yeah there are tweaks to made but I'm happy with it. Very happy.

We've lots of group sites in Ireland but I wanted to make a central reference site for all things Paranormal in Ireland. It contains a catalogue of hauntings from around the country listed by Province (Leinster, Munster, Connacht and Ulster). There is a Submissions page for people to send me their own experiences or stories from their area to get added to the list.

People visiting Psychics, Mediums and Readers of all discription is fairly common in Ireland but a big problem is getting contact details for well known Psychics. After years of looking at people requesting the same phone numbers over and over again on message boards I thought it was time to build a directory. So thats what I'm doing. Am I endorsing these people? No. I'm outting out information that people are looking for.

I've included weekly Horoscopes on the front page.

Catalogue of Hauntings in Ireland.

As a designer its important for me that the site looks good too. I think it does but am always looking for feedback.

Tudor Ghost shakes his booty?

So Andrew Kitt (a photographer from Norwich) was out taking hots at Cinema City in Norwich and noticed something in one of the photos. Below is the picture containing a shadow which Kitt believes looks like a hunched figure in Tudor-style dress. 'The hairs on the back of my neck went up when I first saw it. I’m keeping an open mind. I’m not saying it’s a ghost or anything, but it is certainly strange, it is not a hoax and the photograph has not been tampered with.' says Kitt.
Bar and restaurant manager Steven Smith said: ‘One of the projectionists was closing down one night and heard a whisper in one of the cinemas. It just said “Get out!” so he did, as fast as he could run. I’m here early in the morning but I’ve never come across anything eerie myself.'

Now I'm ok with the story, he's a trained photographer and as he says he's not claiming its a ghost. My problem is the bit about Tudor-style dress ..... ok when someone says it to you you can sort of see it (cos you're looking for it) but its a detail that just doesnt need to be added ..... unless you're trying to make it seem more "ghostly"?

Its like an inkblot test. Just have a look at the two angry old men arguing below.

Poltergeist Hoax: How I think it was faked

I was shown this video and told it was a fake. I dont doubt for a second that its fake but I've seen people try to figure it out and I have to laugh that they presume its edited video or the audio is tampered with.

Heres how I think he did it: He has a guy behind the door. As he walks around closing the doors the other guy opens them again. Notice as he leaves the room he points the camera down so you dont see anything. Guy goes behind the door again. Simple.

On a side note ..... that guy needs to get to the shops! Also whats with all the empty 2lt milk containers on the counter? Lastly, fcuk the kitchen did you see the mess the poltergeist made of his sitting room?!
