Virgin Mary ad creates controversy | Weird | News | Toronto Sun

Virgin Mary ad creates controversy | Weird | News | Toronto Sun

Mary holds the pee stick and is ... well, you decide. Meanwhile, the ad has offended a lot of people, amused others. As is the way with religious stuff.

Rael Against the Machine: UFO Cult Leader Gains Political Asylum | Who Forted? Magazine

The Raelians offend a lot of people: Christians, atheists, the UFO Police and so on. They really offend some Muslims, as history has shown. Here's the latest:
Rael Against the Machine: UFO Cult Leader Gains Political Asylum | Who Forted? Magazine
Negar Azizmoradi, leader of the Iranian branch of the International Raelian Movement, has been granted asylum status in the United States after facing persecuting in her home country.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Raelian Church, they’re the pro-orgy UFO cult started by a French race car driver who believes Jesus was a prophet contacted by the extraterrestrial race that seeded human on life on Earth. Nothing weird, or anything. There’s also that whole embarrassing incident when they claimed to have created the first human clone back in 2002 (they didn’t).

Azimoradi’s family received word that she was to be arrested after publicly stating her Raelian beliefs, an arrest that would most likely have amounted to a death sentence in Iran.

A Sorcerer's Corner: Carlos Castaneda's Doomed Romance with Knowledge | Reality Sandwich

The wonderfully articulate and insightful Aeolus Kephas writes, with extreme eloquence, about the reality and truthfullness of Carolos Castaneda's works:A Sorcerer's Corner: Carlos Castaneda's Doomed Romance with Knowledge | Reality Sandwich I've always found the debate about Castaneda weird (he was a fake, he was real, he was just an academic in a library,he was an adept, a shaman, a trickster, a....) to be missing the point. Many have rejected Castaneda because he was "proven" to be a "fake." For me, that simplistic dismissal makes no sense, and clearly misses the point of what Casteneda gave to the world.

Lesley: "Cult of Pet Haters!"

Lesley's new Grey Matters column for Tim Binnall's site is now available, and as always, it's a good one. Lesley writes about the "pet haters" in Billy Meier's cult. I agree with everything Lesley has to say:Cult of Pet Haters! I'll just add that, even if it's all true -- Meier is absolutely truthful and his ETs are real and their messages are the real deal -- they can all take a long walk on a short pier. Just because they say something doesnt mean we have to like it, agree with it, or believe in them and follow them on their psycho paths. Okay, a bit of a rant there, but read the article for yourself and be sure to read the other great articles while you're there. And be sure to check out the podcasts too!

Black Peter | YUFOLOGY

Tina Sena writes about "Black Peter" at her blog Yufology:Black Peter:
Growing up in a haunted house, you learn a few things. First, never open your eyes when you KNOW something is standing over you and, Second, never ever assume it's just your mom. I had run in's with that kind of stupidity. Thinking the lady in white standing by my window was my mom, or the vague outline of a dark mass standing at the foot of the bed was my mom. Not this time. I was hyper-aware that whatever was standing over me was radiating a malevolence that my mother did not possess.

I remember talking myself into breathing calmly. Into making the thing, whatever it was, believe that I was still asleep. I had succeeded because eventually the darkness was replaced with the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree. But whatever it was, it wasn't gone. Yet.

On being a MILAB

From a forum comment I left about being a MILAB:

On a spiritual level, we chose to be MILABs so that people would never have to be MILABed again- we chose at a certain level to understand the experience of the MILAB and to talk about it openly what is really being done to members of the human populace so that people who are not having this done have the choice to participate in ending this battle, this struggle- so that others would receive a clarion call of help to those who cannot help themselves. We chose as figureheads to destroy the mind-body-spirit connection so that we would learn the "art" of cruelty and inhumanity so that our stories could be enlightening the masses so that their sensitivities would be awakened to become more compassionate in the process. It is all about love and compassion and we have chosen a hard road, but make no mistake, we are on a very real, tangible level waking up the masses one at a time. Psychicly people could not have done the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon without the aid and assistance of people like ourselves, the disappeared, the abducted in other ways, the kidnapped, the silenced, the tortured- spiritually the energy of that awakening to these experiences has fueled the revolution of the masses to just say no to it ever happening (or continuing to happen) ever again. "First a ripple of consternation, then a revealing" is what my guides call it.

Canadian team draws heat for ‘Jack the Ripper’ nickname - Big League Stew - MLB�Blog - Yahoo! Sports

They say it isn't based on Jack the Ripper. No connection at all ...Canadian team draws heat for ‘Jack the Ripper’ nickname From the article:
From the London Free Press:

Team president and general manager David Martin was unapologetic, saying the name, Rippers, is a common baseball term that speaks to the bat prowess of the cartoon character they've created as part of a marketing strategy.

"That (Jack The Ripper) is not our story," said Martin, when told about the reaction. "Ripping a ball is used in baseball all the time."

Martin said the character's name is Diamond Jack, a frustrated hockey player who found he could "rip" the cover off baseballs. Despite his talent, teams grew weary of the expense of replacing balls so Diamond Jack decided to form his own team in London, Ontario.

"It's Phantom of the Opera meets baseball. He's a mysterious character who is somewhat edgy," said Martin.

Say, you know who was also a "mysterious character" who was, uh, "somewhat edgy"? The actual Jack the Ripper. The guy murdered at least five streetwalkers in the Whitechapel District and though his identity has never been revealed, he is most often portrayed as wearing a black top hat and a long black coat.

You know, just like the outfit the guy in the London Rippers logo is wearing.

The Orange Orb: Crop Circle Dream Memory: Beep!

I had a dream the other night involving the beeping sound that some experience during paranormal, UFO and anomalous events. In that dream, a crop circle appeared, along with skeptics. Here's what the dream; for the rest, including the beeping (with links) go to:The Orange Orb: Crop Circle Dream Memory: Beep!
There's a large, beautiful and intricate crop circle. We're all amazed and wonder at how it came to be. It literally appeared, not over night, but over a few minutes. One moment we were looking over at the large field where there was no crop circle. Turned our attention elsewhere for a few moments. Turned back, and there, was the crop circle. Huge and intricate.

Then a group of skeptics come along. They're loud and arguing and demand that we listen to them. The crop circle is a fake! They shout at us. And to prove it was a fake made by man to fool us, they throw little pods of dirt on the crop circle. These pods, the debunkers smugly tell us, contain a chemical that "exposes" the fakery, and bright yellow squares will show up within the crop circle. The yellow squares are proof the circle is a fake. So they thrown the pods on the circle, and stand back, big stupid grins on their faces, waiting for the proof that will reveal how fake the crop circle is.

We wait and watch. At first, the yellow squares begin to pop up. The debunkers are overcome with joy. Ha! they say. But a few moments later, the yellow turns red, then other colors, then "over rides" the crop circle. In other words, the "proof" the skeptics have shown us hasn't proved a thing. In fact, the "real" crop circle takes over, obliterating the debunker pods.

The skeptics are mad and embarrassed. Most of all, they're baffled. Confused. They can't understand that the crop circles are real and have an as yet unexplained source that transcends prosaic explanations.

UFO Magazine - UFO Magazine Blog - Boycott MUFON. Stop David Jacobs.

Dr. David Jacobs (Dr. of history, not psychology) is set to speak about his new angle at L.A. MUFON on the 15th. Why MUFON is buying into this scam as legitimate research and valid I don't know. Of course, MUFON has been in decline as an organization for some time now. Its days of being solid are gone.

Class Act: Calif. MUFON and David Jacobs

As I posted on Orange Orb, David Jacobs is going to speak at MUFON in L.A. He's slated to talk about the psychology of the abductee. We will remind the reader Jacobs is a Dr. of history, not psychology. Following are some words from Jeremy Vaeni:

Alright, this has to stop. MUFON LA is promoting a speaking engagement with David Jacobs. The title of his lecture--tellingly enough--is, "Abductees and their Involuntary Tasks." This is set to take place on Tuesday the 15th. Read all about it here:

Now, Steve Murillo is the section director for MUFON LA. He knows all about the Emma Woods case. In fact, she tried to warn him about Jacobs when he was previously scheduled to give a lecture entitled, “Hybrids: New Research into the Integration Program.”

She gave him a brief description of what had taken place between her, Jacobs, and Elizabeth along with links to her website and audio backing up her claims, to which he responded in email:


Your website has a ton of information to go through. It's going to take a while to go through it. Suffice it to say that your remarks here regarding Dr. Jacobs are duly noted. Forgive me if I seem obtuse, but are you a hybrid as well?

Steve Murillo
State Section Director


Clearly, this man is not a serious researcher and does not care. So who do we turn to? Is anyone above Steve Murillo? Do [i]they[/i] care? Well, Jeremy Vaeni wrote about him in the Woods/Jacobs cover story for [i]UFO Magazine[/i] and he's still got his job, so draw your own conclusion there.

What can we do, then?

I urge everyone to call or write to the Unitarian Church in which this is supposed to take place. Let them know who the man is they are welcoming into their fold.

That phone number is: (818) 769-5911
Their email address is:

Send them a link to Emma's website:

Tell them that this was the big shocker of the year in ufology and although they may be unfamiliar with the issue, it is unacceptable that this man be given a platform in their church!
Steve Murillo, California State Section Director of MUFON, actually had the classless chutzpah to ask Emma Woods if she was a hybrid. Doesn't this astound anyone else out there?

Star Jelly

Mystery jelly baffles experts
MYSTERIOUS goo, which inspired cult horror movie The Blob, is advancing across the English countryside.

Scientists are baffled by the piles of translucent jelly which has bewildered experts for hundreds of years.

Walkers have spotted it on the Yorkshire moors just days after it appeared in the Lake District.

The gloop is thought to be star jelly which according to folklore is deposits from a meteor shower and was first reported in the 14th century. Another theory is that it is the remains of frogs, toads or worms.

My new Trickster's Realm column is at Tim Binnall's Binnall of America: Spirit Sounds

Halloween Celebrates Sex and Death

Whenever I read a headline on the Jeff Rense site that is espicially lurid or over the top, my first thought is: "I bet that's a link to Henry Makow's site!" I like to play that game; see how often I'm right about that. Sure enough, came across this: Halloween Celebrates Sex and Death, and it's the latest from Henry Makow. Actually, the aricle isn't by Makow but Richard Evans guest blogging for Makow. Still, stamped for approval by old Henry.

I love this: "Halloween is Christmas for Satanists." Oh, that's good! But if you don't like that one, there's this: "'Halloween is the Gay Christmas."

Halloween Image of the Day

I had the idea of posting a Halloween image a day but life keeps getting in the way. Here's one I found though; I know I know this actress but can't think of her name. Anyone recognize her? Anyway, Happy Halloween!

ATS Thread: "Exposing the evils of Wicca Witchcraft!,"

I look at this as entertainment, even while admitting I have little tolerance for ignorant fools. That's just me. Trolls, or ignorant religious fanatics, either way, bemusing given the Halloween season. Oy. Exposing the evils of Wicca Witchcraft!

Piano Synchronicities

Cat Spirits, Mother's Piano, Tarot Cards...june 2011. I found this in draft mode, intending to post it on one of my blogs. Since this is the ghostly season, I'm posting it here.

I posted the other day about possible spirit activity around here due to fixing up the house. Today I saw my cat Roswell walk into the bedroom. I then walked in the other direction, into the kitchen, and, there was Roswell! I saw a ghost cat! Cool!

Not so fast. Our other cat, Matisse, who I was convinced was outside, was the one who had walked into the bedroom He's gray (a Russian Blue) and Roswell is a tuxedo cat. When Matisse walked by, he looked jet black, not gray. He actually blends into the shadows very well, more so than Roswell, who's mainly black. Oh well.

On the other hand, I've been having interesting things happen around my psychic intuitiveness; getting back into doing readings with some positive and surprising things happening because of that. Doing so has opened up all kinds of things on many levels. This afternoon an abrupt tiredness came over me, I could barely stand up, I was so inexplicably fatigued. I go into the bedroom to take a nap. Afternoon naps are always strange; I have the weirdest, and most psychic kind, of dreams, and it is very hard for me to wake up from them. I have to force myself to move, to get up, and it takes me a long time to shake myself out of it. So my dream involved a lot of what I'd call French-movie-surrealism but one thing:

I dreamt I was in charge of facilitating a chamber orchestra. I myself wasn't a musician, but I was responsible for everything surrounding their playing; setting up their appearances, making sure everything was set up just so, etc. I go inside to the small privately owned, very rich estate where the orchestra has been hired to play. No one around, including the musicians, it's too early. I sit down at the piano, which I don't know how to play. Wish i could though. I remove a silk cover that is protecting the keyboards. I know I don't remove it quite properly; it's still showing, but it works. I think to myself, well, this is stupid, I don't know how to play, but her It goes, and I start to bang away. I think: "I'll fake it, just go for it," and before I know it, I'm playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Not very well, but anyone hearing it would recognize it.

Lots more that I don't remember very well,  including children and ghosts and not wanting to offend the snooty rich folk but I end up doing so anyway and when I/we do, it feels pretty good.

I wake up and turn on the radio right away, which is my habit. It's set to the classical station. And playing on the classical station, is Moonlight Sonata.

Regan's mother, Seaside Oregon, circa 1929?

Further synchronicity and messages; I usually talk with my mother every Sunday, but I haven't spoken with her for two weeks. The lack of communication had been on my mind. My mother was a concert pianist, playing when she was three years old and having recitals when she was not much older than that.  When we were growing up, she played at the Steinway in our living room, and one of the pieces she always played was Moonlight Sonata. She would get kind of sick of it, for we'd always ask her to play that for us.

And yet one more: I had just finished proofing this, then sat back as my husband read me the latest installment in his novel series, described as "paranormal science fiction romance conspiracy." Indeed. Anyway, he's reading me a part about the main character and his mother; the mother asks her son to play Moonlight Sonata for her on the piano. ! I hadn't read or told my husband any of this beforehand.
Piano Ghost by Regan Lee, abstract expressionism, acrylic on canvas, 2000?
Piano and childhood; must have more an impact on my subconscious than I realize. I painted this abstract expressionist style painting about ten years ago, and titled it "Piano Ghost."

To close things here, last night, I had a dream about my childhood home, moving furniture -- particularly the piano, which sat in our living room (we weren't wealthy by any means, my mom worked "outside the home" but dammit, we had a piano!) -- while my mom remained outside, shouting to us her input. It was a happy dream, but I woke up a little distressed, wondering if this had something to do with my mother's health.

School principal bans Fall holidays because they are 'insensitive'

Thanksgiving, Columbus Day, Halloween banned in a Massachusetts elementary school:
She had already told staff not to let the kids dress up for Halloween, according to the Boston Herald.

Superintendent Tony Pierantozzi told The Herald that Halloween is 'problematic' because of connections to witchcraft.
No mention of Christmas, but, being contrary here, I have to ask: what about Christmas being "problematic" because of its "connections" to Christianity/Catholics/the Vatican?

Lesley's Gray Matters: "Cursed or Just Plain Weird?

Lesley's Gray Matters column for Binnall of America:Cursed or Just Plain Weird? Seems a Halloween type story right for this witchy season, only her experience is true!

I go into the grocery and she is following me. I turn and look at her again and she looks in the other direction. I stop to pick up a cart and she is once again very near, like within a foot and mumbling in Spanish again. So I swing the cart around and leave quickly. My first stop is the produce section. I have pretty much totally forgotten about her and am concentrating on what I stopped there for. I stop to pick out some sort of veggie or fruit and there she is again! She is once again right at my ear, just inches away and mumbling in Spanish! Same thing as before - I turn around to ask her what the fuck she wants and she quickly turns and speeds away. By that point I am kind of freaked out by her and I grab my cart and race through the store to finish my shopping.

Happy Halloween! Two Witches on Mushrooms

Lovely image! Two witches deep in I'm sure delightful and magickal conversation under in the moonlight. And on top of mushrooms . . . fairy witches?

Do you fancy a jelly baby made from human DNA? - Telegraph

I'd like to think this is a Halloween joke. Either that, or we're doomed.
Do you fancy a jelly baby made from human DNA? - Telegraph: Reports last week that researchers could be just six months away from producing the world’s first artificial meat, using thousands of stem cells bred in a laboratory, sent a wave of fascination around the world. Yet there is an even more ghoulish prospect ahead: the idea of eating artificial food made from humans.

This may sound like science fiction, yet a new technique for making gelatin from human DNA is attracting “increasing interest from research and industrial circles”, according to a new study by scientists from the Beijing University of Chemical Technology. The paper, published recently in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, revealed that successful experiments had been carried out in which human genes were inserted into a strain of yeast to “grow” large amounts of recombinant (genetically engineered) human gelatin.

My coverage of Occupy Wall Street on The Gralien Report

My first stint as a "field correspondent" for The Gralien Report. Since I'd been visiting the Occupy Wall Street location since its inception and since Micah Hanks the host is one of my favorite people on the planet, I said yes.

This is a great show, the Occupy Wall Street coverage begins in hour one, a really interesting story on law enforcement using algorithms to predict "pre-crime" (Just like in Minority Report! Yikes!) is in hour two, and the subject of demons and demonology comes up in hour three. What more do you want?

From Kithra: "Slowing Down and Cutting Back"

A poignant piece from Women of Esoterica contributor Kithra at her blog Kithra's Krystal Kave, about health and decisions. Please keep her in your thoughts of healing and love. . .

The years have not been kind, and this week I reach my middle 60s which, on some days for me, often feels more like my middle 80s! Yes, I know we now have the expression that these days the 60s are the new 40s, but it doesn’t feel that way for me. My health has been in steady decline for the last decade or so, and with it my eyes are deteriorating more than is normal. In fact I have a problem with my left eye that makes it almost impossible to see clearly out of it now, and that will only get worse as there is no cure. I’m not going to bore you with all my medical symptoms, or the list of medication my doctor has prescribed. And yes, again, I know that many of you don’t take medication but prefer to rely on herbal and alternative remedies. Well, I’ve tried some of those in the past, and they don’t give me the relief that my prescription does, so I’m sticking with that.

Outsider/Folk Art: Patroness of Fallen Women

About fifteen years ago, there was a local woman who sold religious folk art/outsider art items at her booth at the Saturday Market. Saturday Market is a long running street fair in Eugene (since 1970),  full of booths of hand made items, as well as food booths and lots of music.

I bought several things from her at the time and did a paper on her when I was studying folklore at the University of Oregon.

This is a beaded necklace, with a wood pendant. On the front is an image of St. Maria Magdalene. On the back is a little label: "St. Maria Magdalene Patroness of Fallen Women." This is what Books of the Times site has to say about St. Maria Magdalene:
There is a breathtaking moment in the Gospel of Philip, one of the Gnostic gospels, which were denounced by the church as heresy. The apostles witness Jesus kissing Mary Magdalene on the mouth. The apostles are horrified, jealous. ''Why do you love her more than us?'' they ask. Jesus' response is mysterious and enigmatic. ''Why do I not love you like her?'' he says.
What is the meaning of those kisses? Sexual passion? A profound friendship? Jesus anointing Mary Magdalene as his successor and as leader of the church?
Traditionally, Mary Magdalene has been seen as a reformed harlot, portrayed in paintings as red haired and bare breasted. But as Karen L. King, the Winn professor of ecclesiastical history at Harvard University, in the Divinity School, points out in her new book, ''The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle,'' nowhere does the Bible say that she was a prostitute.

I know I have that paper, with photos, around here somewhere. I also have other items that I hope to take snaps of and post. I think the woman -- a very colorful person! -- called herself "Sister Spirit" and I want to say "bear" was in there somewhere, but it's been many years and I don't remember.

She sold jewelry with decorated images of the saints and the BVM as well as Jesus. She was known for her Jesus nightlights: religious plastic nightlights of Jesus and Mary, (the kind you can buy at dime stores; I've even seen them at Dollar Store type places) painted, often with neon colors, and decorated with beads, glitter, feathers .

I haven't been to the Saturday Market for a couple of years; but when I have gone there, I didn't notice her around. I think she left the area some time ago, or at least, stopped making her wonderful folk art.

Another long piece on Henry Makow's site about the evil agendas of the Illuminati and Hollywood's occult ways. So much to have fun with here, but for now, I'll just quote the following line. After lamenting that one of the goals of this satanic cabal of movie makers is to "madate" sex sans purpose of reproducing, it is asked:
If people are not trying to have babies, by fucking, then what are they going to be trying to do?
Er, I can think of several things one is "trying to do" "by fucking"...["...not trying to have babies"]

No wonder they're all so grouchy over there.

I Come From Circus Folk

Not exactly a new blog; I've had this around for awhile but hadn't done anything with it: I Come From Circus Folk. I was enjoying the idea of it, but wasn't sure what direction I wanted to take. The other day, I was revisiting this new/old blog of mine, and almost ready to put it out there, playing around with templates, etc. but felt too tired to make a decision. Then I checked my bloglist, and noticed Nick Redfern's latest blog Nick's Fortean Pic of the Day, a great idea -- where Nick posts photos, drawings, book covers, etc. of Fortean goodness with a little history of each. creation. I commented over there that, maybe not exactly a moment of synchronicity, it was a little weird I had just been thinking of publishing my blog of circus folk images, then saw his new blog.

A special acknowledgement to the late Mac Toonies, who was a good friend of many, including Nick's. Mac's blog Things That Look Like Flying Saucers was the inspiration for Nick's Fortean Pic of the Day. Mac's blog was truly an inspiration, as I had noted on my blog Vintage U.F.O., and Mac kindly posted my comment on his blog.

Tina Sena: If it Walks like a Man, then it Must be an Ape with a Nice Haircut

Tina Sena does, indeed, rock. Her new column: If it Walks like a Man, Then it Must be an Ape with a Nice Haircut for Binnall of America is now up; I especially love this:
"Some believe in aliens. Some believe in gods. I believe some high and mighty beings with a bad sense of direction and a bad case of boredom decided they wanted to be special. Perhaps they wanted to be as special as we once were. And how does the bully make him/herself special? They dominate and oppress the perceived weaker person."

On the L.O.W.F.I. Site: "Hum a Few Bars for Me" by David Andrew: Beeping Sounds

Hum a Few Bars for Me by David Andrew.

At the L.O.W.F.I. site, this guest article by David Andrew on the buzzing and humming sounds often heard by some abductees. I don't consider myself an abductee, as I often point out, for two reasons. One, I have no idea what the abduction phenomena is about and two, I don't have any specific conscious memories of the classic abduction scenario, even though I have had a lot of very strange experiences. As Jeremy Vaeni said to me once I've gone through "Abduction 101." (Missing time, strange dreams, obsessions, synchronicities, life time of UFO sightings, aliens...) Yet, I have heard these strange buzzings, clickings, hummings and electronic type sounds in my head many times during OOBEs and related experiences.

Andrew cites research done in this area of sound and brain wave patterns and writes:
Some abductees have reported humming or buzzing sounds just before certain abduction experiences. This made me wonder if these sounds might actually have a purpose that could be related to the abductee’s brain wave function. Could extraterrestrials be utilizing sound to affect abductee’s brain waves and, what would be the purpose in doing so? It seems quite evident that sound waves can affect brain waves.
 Andrew goes on to cite experiments done by the Department of Defense using sound to alter brain waves. While Andrew doesn't come out and say it -- and I don't know if this is his intent or not -- I wonder if he wasn't getting at MILABs. (Military Abductions.)

Either way, this pattern of hearing buzzing, beeping, humming sounds during sleep, OOBEs, abductions, etc. is something that is reported by some UFO witnesses, including myself.

These sounds are not heard by just abductees however. In some Bigfoot encounters and other high strangeness events witnesses report hearing these sounds. See Greg Taylor's Her Sweet Murmur, and my  Beeping article for UFO Digest.

Going Back A Bit In Time – Revisiting The Early Days Of UFOlogy And The Contactee Movement | UFO Digest provides video proof of ufos, alien abduction and the paranormal.

At UFO Digest, Sean Casteel reviews Tim Beckley's reprint of two stories of two female contactees, Dana Howard and Gloria Lee. (I wrote the intro for the Gloria Lee book.) As Sean points out, there are UFO researchers who reject the contactee era as embarrassing nonsense, or, as he puts it, attack Tim Beckley for exploitation:
Though Tim Beckley believes his motivations should be seen as altruistic, to others they are controversial even appalling. There are still some purists in the field who believe that “contactee” is a dirty word. Yet all things considered, Beckley is doing the UFO community a huge service by reprinting hard to find books from the 1950s, books written by early UFO experiencers who were the first to claim contact with the aliens after the initial sighting by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 that started it all.

Tina Sena: Esotericana

Our contributor Tina Sena's current column over at Binnall of America:How To Make The Perfect Paranormal TV Show
In An Imperfect Normal World.
Tina discusses paranormal programming, and has a proposal:
Which is why I propose that Syfy, National Geographic and the History Channel (and others like BRAVO, etc.,.) seriously consider doing a paranormal show with a mostly, if not all, female cast. And I'm not talking about your average formulaic paranormal show. It has to be something that's never been done before: A show for women, with women and about women from different professional backgrounds, investigating the oldest, weirdest, most paranormally significant places on Earth.

I'm for that! One of my dreams is to start my own paranormal UFO network. Hmmm...

A few years ago, I think on the Lifetime channel, there was a show about female abductees. Had a cheesy title, something like "I was abducted by aliens!" but it wasn't bad, despite the shaky camera stuff.

Binnall of America: Lesley's Grey Matters

Women of Esoterica contributor Lesley Gunter's current column, Grey Matters, at Binnall of America, where she writes about the "Creepy Summer" in New Mexico:

grey matters: "Always as I see it coming in the Stephen King story The Mist comes to mind, as does the Smoke Monster from Lost. I almost expect some horrible Lovecraftian-type creature to come slithering out of it and start devouring everything in sight. Meanwhile, I think that somewhere beneath that could be a fleet of UFOs and nobody would ever know."

Her post "Beyond the Cutrian" which Nick linked to, discusses the idea of "monsters" coming from other dimensions. What's Jennae's conclusion? Read it and find out!

Reverse Speech

I was just thinking about Oates and the subject of reverse speech; how Oates used to be on C2C all the time, and the whole area of reverse speech. I think Oates and Art Bell, maybe it was another C2C host, had a falling out some time ago. I don't think Oates has been on C2C for some time. Anyway, have been thinking about this fascinating topic lately for some reason, and how, in my opinion, it's still ignored.In a bit of synchronicity, I find this link on, linking to an interview with Oates and Rense about reversals regarding ET. (Years ago the two major competing AM stations in Eugene carried, respectively, C2C and Rense at the same time. The station carrying Rense dropped him; thankfully I still get my Fortean fix from KPNW in Eugene, which carries C2C, even though, unfortunately, they air the show beginning with the second hour, because we all know how important and wise Lars Larson is, which precedes C2C in our area.)

Some of you know what I think about Rense, but he's just the vehicle.  Still an interesting segment.

Opening Up, Synchronicity

Source: Free Images
Are moments of synchronicity signals to us that "they" heard us and are responding? ("They" being whatever force, symbol, deity, entity, energy you care to put on it. )

A big issue for me is distraction. Putting a label on it, like AADD helps in one sense; it's not "just me" and I'm not a big stupid lazy flake. Others may think so, and I don't blame them, but for myself (and a bit ironically) that acknowledgement of my life long struggle with things has actully helped me to focus. Acknowledged, named, owned, I now move on. It's not an excuse; in fact, since I've been dealing with this in various ways I've become less distracted. I look at it, say "screw off, AADD," and fight the good fight.

I'm going on about this because my path has been one of distraction. (I suppose "all who wander aren't lost" is a good motto to keep things positive.) So the past couple of weeks I, once again, have been focusing on meditating and the work in psychic/intuitive areas, including the use of oracles. Each time I go back to this work, immediate results come in, from OOBEs to precognition...the gates have opened, and a rush of energy comes through.

I used to wonder why moments of synchronicity are often trivial. Someone once told me that the fact they happen at all is far from trivial. Forget the message, that's just a nudge to get your attention. If the moments of synchronicity were hugely enlightening every time then we'd explode from all that brilliance.

So lately since I've been meditating and working once again with stones, particularly amethyst, I've been experiencing synchronicity. Most are too trivial to mention. But here are two examples: yesterday as as I was working in the garden, I found myself thinking of the actress Dorothy McGuire. What movies was she in, whatever happened to her, etc. I wondered why my chattering mind was suddenly focusing on Dorothy McGuire but there it was. And after a hard day of working in the yard, I turn on the TV later that night to find that The Spiral Staircase, starring Dorothy McGuire, was just about to start on TMC.

This morning, as I'm sweeping the living room floor, I see a huge disgusting and scary insect crawling over a book. (I admit that it was "disgusting" because I was scared.)  I don't know what it was exactly, at first I thought it was a cricket. Then maybe a wasp of some kind. I'm still not sure; I wasn't about to get a close look. I don't like killing things and will often take creatures out of the house, and I'm not one of those yahoos that stomp on bugs just because you can. But I did this morning. That bug was huge, ugly and creepy. It actually frightened me.

Finished with sweeping, I settle in to read the morning paper, starting with the comics. (The horrors of the day can wait two minutes.) I turn to one of my favorite comics, Mutts, and see this:

Women on Trial for "Murdering" Their Babies

There’s a trend across the US that has reached Mississippi. On June 8th, Rennie Gibbs’ murder trial was put off and will resume in August. She is charged with killing her unborn child. Not willfully, but murder nonetheless.

According to prosecutors, Ms. Gibbs was taking cocaine during her pregnancy. Even though the fetus’s premature delivery and death were not found to be caused directly by drug use. That bears repeating – the baby did not die from the cocaine. However, Ms. Gibbs use of cocaine during the pregnancy showed a “heartless disregard” for the consequences. And since the fetus died, murder charges are warranted.

Mishap or Murder?

Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia

Greg Taylor at the very excellent and superb The Daily Grail has an essay about Wikipedia's core hostility to fringe topics. One blog takes exception to this, defending skepticism and Wikipedia -- comments by Red Pill Junkie, TDG contributor, follow.
Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia: Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia:

Must Be a Slow News Day for Mad Makow

James Rich, Beside Herself, acrylic on canvas

This is so old school Women's Studies 101; Henry Makow ("Mad" Makow I call him) has reposted his paranoid rant from 2001: - "Vagina Monologues" - Porn Play Debased Women. Makow is, as always, hyperbolic in his infinite campaign against feminism, gays, the Illuminati/Satanists, and Jews. They're all in it together, don't you know.

One of Makow's many surrealistic opinions on what women are really about is that once feminists discover the truth about the evil agenda that lives within, these women are doomed. Doomed! Because all that's left for these women is to become gay:

"The Vagina Monologues" presents a sad picture of life at the dead-end of feminism. It is an anguished cry for male love by a generation of women deceived by feminism, who now have no choice but to become lesbians.
Something about the play has Makow worked up, for he uses the word "steamy" twice in his denouncement:
the play provides a steamy experience of sexual intimacy.
"The Vagina Monologues" quickly becomes a steamy chronicle of lesbian sex 
Parsing the twilight language in Makow's writing is always fun; I'm sure his use of the word "flavor" in the following is inadvertent but it made me laugh:
Forgive me for what follows but I am trying to convey the pornographic flavor of this so-called play.
Makow writes that "fixation" on one's genitals is "pure homosexuality." I'm serious here, is anyone out there listening to this fool?  Sadly, and more to the point, frighteningly, the answer is yes. Of course Makow's a clown, but what's scary is that there are plenty of both men and women who follow his misogynistic philosophies and those people are very serious. Furthermore, his biggest fan seems to be Jeff Rense, who happily posts links to Makow's current articles on a regular basis.

I wondered how long it would take Makow to get into the world domination by evil feminist-Jew-lesbians via their Illuminati ways shtick. No matter what the topic of his rants are -- it could be recipes for jello salad or whatever -- he brings it all around to the insidious plots to rule teh wolrd by lesbian-jew-feminists.
Even though the subject of Makow's current piece is The Vagina Monologues, he goes from theater critic to paranoid goof ball. Well, he was a paranoid goof ball to begin with, but anyway. He segues into a brief section titled Illuminati Brainwashing, where he once again equates self-empowerment and being educated about one's body to having a "hatred of hetrosexuality." Next section: Agitprop, where Makow discusses the "tactics" used by Communists, which, don't ya know, are also used by the evil pinko-jew-lesbian-feminist cabal:
We must face the fact that feminism is a homosexual movement in deadly competition with heterosexuality. It is part of a wider covert war aimed at subverting Western civilization and enslaving society.  
Mrs. June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley) in her kitchen
As I mentioned earlier, the comments left on Makow's site are disturbing. Makow may be a fruitcake: old, stale, and moldy, left far too long on a crusty
contact-papered shelf in June Cleaver's kitchen, but I can't ignore the fact that there are those that take Makow seriously. One comment left by "Phil" puts the The Vagina Monologues in the same category as torture and war:
Dr. Makow – thanks for your expose of this popular pornographic play. It is a sign of a very sick culture that things like this are so easily accepted by society these days, along with torture as official policy, pre-emptive wars, and the slaughter of innocents.
I can't speak to the play itself as a play, since I've never seen the play, only having seen various scenes throughout the years. Something about the play always struck me as, while empowering and all that good stuff, as also kind of do-gooder upper middle class bourgeoisie tripe.  But regardless of if I've seen the play or not, it's clear Makow's issues with the play are with women taking control of their own bodies and educating themselves. Finding offense at basic sexuality is such a sad yet ridiculous response to have in these times, (any times) and then equating that with the downfall of society while ignoring the real stuff -- you know, like the world literally cracking open --  is truly bizarro. So, in that context, one question among many questions, is why does Jeff Rense insist on promoting Henry Makow?

I will be a guest on The Truther Girls radio show on Tuesday, June 28th, 2011 from 2-3:30 pm ET

This should be a great show, I spoke with Sonia for an hour and a half last week by phone and she was hilarious, compassionate, so smart and really open minded to what has happened to me. The topics covered will be my testimony at the recent Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethics, my MILAB experience with Aaron McCollum, and my covert operations recovered memories of having been involved with James Casbolt and others in that regard. Please check it out, I have a strong feeling topics I haven't covered before in other interviews will be discussed as well, and she is a great devil's advocate who asks really probing, germaine questions.

Sonia's Youtube channel is pretty great as well, here's a link for lots of great information about The NWO, health and nutrition, funny skits, alternative energy, and some occasional info on UFOs and the national security state:

Animal Forteana: Here Be Dragons! Itty Baby Ones, on Game of Thrones

Of the season finale of Game of Thrones, dragons, and (possible) Queens:
True, the women have power, but the King trumps the Queen. Ah, but not so fast, for Khaleesi/Daenerys Targaryen has come into her own. Surrounded by her dragons, she will indeed rule, I suspect. And I bet the red winged dragon will be her special one; the leader of the pack (all three of them), the one who leads the way

Question Has Been Posed:" Is Whitley Strieber Advocating Implants?"

I followed this link from Lesley's Debris Field, and was astonished, because I'd forgotten about Rigorous Intuition. So many forums and blogs and people. so little time. There's a lot there about Strieber and The Key, which I haven't yet read, and I don't know what to think about any of it. But it's interesting as hell, that is for sure.

I've just skimmed what's all there, so can't comment much. But a couple of things: seems Daniel Pinchbeck, who I greatly admire, has issues with Strieber, as I've commented on the past as well. Two psychonauts I respect at odds with each other. Always interesting. Then there's the late Mac Tonnies' thoughts on Strieber (Mac being another person I admired) -- which are very intriguing -- referenced on the RI OP. But what to think? Seems as wild in many ways as the simple idea Strieber is saying he experienced exactly what he did, indeed, experience. Can we fault the "experiencer" for stumbling around and trying to process the incredible? What else is he/she to do? And what of the enigmatic remark from the author of this post at RI about "psychic" interplays? via computer?:
"I posted a response suggesting an alternate explanation to Strieber’s paranoid insistence that sinister forces were behind the edits, namely, that Whitley had unconsciously altered the text via some sort of psychic interface with his software (something which has almost certainly happened in my experience)."
That's quite a concept, one that's never entered my mind. And yet, I had something close to that myself once...does this mean the computer can be a conduit for communication for "them" as with ghost/hauntings -- those spirits and energies that use electricity to communicate? Which would mean Strieber's mind wasn't playing tricks on him, but "they" were.

I'm not defending anyone here, nor, attacking. Both seem downright stupid as well as silly and petty. When it comes to the individual and his or her experiences, we can't dare to tell them how to go about their journey, or be so presumptuous, as so many are in this field, to tell them how to interpret those experiences.

Animal Forteana: Naked in the Artic: Exploiting Belugas

 I posted this story of a Russian female marine biologist at my Animal Forteana blog; thougt I'd share it here:

Naked in the Artic: Exploiting Belugas

This is an incredible story, almost seems like a tabloid item or Onion piece. Beautiful photographs, and amazing story in so many ways. But it's very sad as well, for the Beluga whales are being "tamed" and kept in holding pens in the ocean until such time they're considered acclimated enough to be sent to aquairiums or "dolphinariums" around the world. A horrible thing; something that should be illegal. Such beauty and witness to how we can control our bodies to communicate with other creatures, and all for greedy and self-gratifying reasons that exploit others.

More on Surrealist Painter Leonora Carrington

Many thanks to dia sobin who shared this link of paintings by surrealist artist Leonaora Carrington, who passed away recently: Leonora Carrington.

Her paintings are beautiful. Some of them remind me of Tarot cards, others, of esoteric alien-abduction-ET realms, even though, I am quite sure, that was not Carrington's intent, I'm simply saying they remind me of that a bit.

Surrealist painter Leonora Carrington dies aged 94 | Reuters

British painter Leonora Carrington, one of the last surviving artists from the golden age of Surrealism, has died aged 94 in her adopted home of Mexico City, where she had lived quietly for decades.
Mexico's national arts council said Carrington died on Wednesday night in the Mexican capital. Local media reported she died of pneumonia.

An arresting beauty in her youth who became famous for her paintings of women and mythical beasts, Carrington was embraced by the Surrealists in the late 1930s, when she had a passionate affair with German artist Max Ernst.
Viewed as a national treasure in Mexico, her eccentric bronze sculptures dot the capital's main avenue Reforma. One piece was ripped from its bolted base and stolen from a public exhibition in 2000, though the thieves later abandoned it.
"She created mythical worlds where magical figures and animals predominate. Cobras become goats, crows transform into blind spirits and inhabit trees and houses," Conaculta said in a statement. "They are images that emerged from a mind obsessed with representing the transcendent reality we live in."

Here's more on Ms. Carrington, from Encyclopedia of the Exquisite: Nobody's Muse.
I didn’t have time to be anyone’s muse,” said Carrington. “I was too busy rebelling against my family and learning to be an artist.”

Mad Makow Going Strong...

Mad Henry Makow is really going at it. As if the previous article wasn't enough; now this from Peter Tesky. Women Today are "Whack Jobs": Women Programmed to self-destruct; Feminist Cultural Leaders are Traitors. I could comment endlessly but it speaks for itself, as in:
"Most women are confused, anti-social, filled with anxiety and fear, and when you approach them, they treat you like a predator or a pervert. Those who are friendly only want sex, even if they're already in a relationship, or worse, already married."
Then there's the feminists and the lesbians, usually they both go hand in hand.
It seems most women don't like being "harassed" by men anymore,
And he ends with the Makow doctrine that everything wrong with the world (you know, like Jews, lesbians and feminists) is done by the Illuminati:
The crimes against humanity by Illuminati social engineers in the name of freedom and equality are mind boggling.

Why do I keep picking on Makow? Because, while he's hysterical and it's a surreal feeling to know there are actually people like him out there, there are actually people like him out there. The comments left on these articles are scary --- sigh, there are really people like him out there! And just about the only site you can count on to pass along Makow's homophobic, sexist, anti-Semitic insanity is Jeff Rense's site, which says quite a lot about ol' Rense.

Universal Truth Evolution Radio interviews Psychic and MILAB Anya Briggs about speaking at the Presidential Commission on the Study of Bioethics

In this two hour interview with host Jerry Avalos, I dig deep into my experience vault to reveal details of nonconsensual medical and scientific experimentation as well as being in covert programs with supersoldiers on both sides of the pond, Aaron McCollum and James Casbolt. Riveting details of recovered memories are revealed that have never been written or talked about publicly as well. Highly recommended listening. A special thanks to Jerry for letting me speak my truth.

Fortean Sexuality: "I Married a Lesbian"

When I saw this link on "I Married a Lesbian," I just knew it was from Henry ("Mad") Makow. I clicked over, and sure enough, toots, I was right! The article isn't by old Henry himself, it's written by Dan Abshear, but Henry has given the piece his A-okay.

There are soooooooo many things wrong, (and yet, sadly hysterically funny even if the latter is unwittingly so) with this article, beginning with the title of course. Then the sexist comment about the "...extremely rare and hard-to-find image of lesbians who aren't extremely hot." Implying of course that, well, lesbianism is kind of okay as long as the women are "hot" and getting off the severely fucked up hetro males viewing such images.

Oh, and then there's this:
She and I are 4th cousins as well.

She became "interested" in him when he was 21 -- how old was she? They're fourth cousins. They met when he was 14 . . . anyway, they marry, and he quickly wonders why his wife is "unresponsive" to him. Sex is not the thrill it  should be. So instead of asking her why she finds him repugnant he begins a program of self-improvement:
She was sexually impotent with me, and this puzzled me. So, I began to exercise very aggressively and intensely. This would include such activities as weightlifting and long distance bicycling.

While rather puny when I got married, I developed into quite a attractive and sturdy young man. This was all to please my wife and gain her affection. I improved my diet and continued these exercise habits until the age of 40.

Since this didn't increase her intimacy toward me, I began to wonder if she wanted me to make more money. The first six or so years of our marriage, I barely made more than minimum wage. We were very poor, and in debt.

And so on, him trying to find ways to make his wife sexually and emotionally responsive. No where does he write if he tried talking to her about these intimate issues.

Things go along for twenty years, including having a child, and hubby insists his wife seek therapy, which she does. Alarmingly, her psychiatrist breaks the rules of ethics and confidentially and tells him that:
... I visited the same psychiatrist. He told me that my wife was in fact a lesbian, and that it would destroy me in time if I did not divorce her.

Here's a huge WTF moment:
Interestingly, our sex life actually improved a great deal. It appears that my knowing she was a lesbian may have given her some freedom.

And yet, the marriage fails, because, among other things, she "falsely" accused him of domestic violence. So the lesbian wife, er, ex-wife, moves out. Not, however, with her female lover, but:
And my ex wife has yet to disclose to anyone that she is a lesbian. She continues to live this lie. My ex wife presently has a boyfriend in order to continue the concealment. ..

I'm not sure what the point is, other than it appeared on Henry Makow's site, which is notoriously misogynist and homophobic, and such lurid stupidity reigns.

As usual, the majority of comments left at the end of the article are as scary as the rest of what gets thrown up there. Like this philosophical sharing from "Marcos":
One thing every man should know is that you never, never satisfy a woman by appeasement...

As Americans say, she is sh*t testing you, to check if you are really worth her relinquishing sexually to you. The answer is to show strength and dominance, and never the contrary, trying to please her, to be "nice" which is what most men do. This will only make the woman despise your weakness even more. . .

Understand that this unconscious, biological. Women need to be certain that they've got the best men her looks can "buy". If she feels irritated, frustrated around you (and still you are a good guy), she has doubts about her choice. When you assert your dominance, those doubts are gone. As Henry says, women need to relinquish power to the man, but only to those she admires. Women are hypergamous, i.e., they always go for the alpha male, for the powerful man. You must assure that you are this man.

From Colin Andrews Site: George Wingfield: Linda Moulton-Howe's false UFO & crop circles..

Wingfield points out glaring untruths in LMH's presentation at the 23rd Ozark UFO Conference:
George Wingfield: Linda Moulton-Howe's false UFO & crop circles..

I am very wary of self-styled UFO Police and invite all (except uber psycho skeptoids) to play. Demands from some researchers that certain subjects or approaches within UFOlogy be rejected for whatever reason should be soundly mocked and utterly ignored. But there is something to be said for being coherent (as I'll comment later regarding Paola Harris) or being cavelair with information. We've been seeing a lot of this these days, from David Jacobs, Budd Hopkins, and many more before them, and we'll of course see many more after this.

I wasn't at this conference and can't comment directly. I've stood up for LMH in the past and she does deserve acknowledgement for her contributions. I do think she has her own view of what "all this" is, (most of us have our own views of what "all this" is) and that affects her spin on the stories she brings us. She's not the only researcher to do so.

By the way, if you visit Colin Andrew's site, and can find some way of contributing to his efforts, I am sure he will appreciate it.

Synchronicity: Pendulums, Tesla and Orbs

Yes, I have bunches of dowsers and pendulums, but at the conference one of the vendors had one that really caught my eye:

The first thing I thought was it is a Tesla coil pendulum!  Then I thought that isn't right because Tesla coils have tight spirals like this:

but I knew that it reminded me of some Tesla invention so when the conference was over I did some searching and came across this:

Tesla's drawing for wireless electricity transmitter/receiver.  I haven't been able to use the pendulum outside yet because of the spring winds, but I was sitting inside and dangling it and wondering if it was a transmitter or receiver or maybe both.  I jokingly thought that maybe I could call some UFOs using it.  Laid it down, forgot about it.  A little while later I went outside and I was just sitting there not even looking at the sky and there was a very loud plane I saw it flying over a little south of me (which makes sense as that is the normal flight path), but then when I turned back and looked almost directly overhead there was one of those damn orbs flying over.  It was going so fast that I only managed one photo before it was out of view:

Seemed more than a little synchronistic after thinking about that while holding the pendulum.
