Chase Burns UFO Videos

Skunkeen has posted on the forums a link to a Hgh-Def version of a UFO video taken by a chap named Chase Burns.

I saw a low quality version of this clip awhile ago, but the original sound had been replaced with audio of Chase burns talking about what he had captured.

It's a very nice UFO video and it's nice to see it in a kind of HD on youtube, the video shows a circle of lights that appear to be rotating at times as well as another single blue light quite a distance away from the circle of lights.

Video with Chase Burns describing the event.

About Fellow Kiwi Leigh Hart and That Bigfoot Conference

Kiwi, Leigh Hart "That Guy" recently wrote an article about his experience at a recent Bigfoot conference held in Ohio. The article pretty much took the mickey out of Bigfoot Researchers and has left quite a few people unimpressed with his antics.

Cryptomundo received an apology from That Guy, but it really didn't roll with That Guys original article.

If your in the know as most of us Kiwis are, you'll find that you really can't take Leigh Hart all that seriously, I mean the guy covered the Beijing Olympics for a New Zealand T.V show from L.A.

But if your not in the know I'd imagine an encounter with That Guy would be much like an encounter with Borat, an odd experience, leaving those interviewed wondering wtfs going on and nodding politely.

I'm not making any excuses for my fellow Kiwi, I understand the feeling of being made fun of and how it feels being deceived, but surely he's transparent enough for most people to know he's pulling their leg, he's just quite bold with it.

With that in mind the next few videos illustrate what most of us Kiwis get from That Guy most of the time.

If any footage from the Bigfoot Conference ever surfaces, I'd say it would be presented much like this. I'll keep y'all posted if any footage is ever made public.

Zooming the Moon at Night, Testing out my camera

So I looked out my window the other night and noticed a pair of red blinking lights moving erratically side to side coming towards my house, I thought this is it, a UFO sighting. So I rushed and grabbed my camera, hoofed it outside and noticed the sound, it was just a plane, but it was still moving strangely. I don't know what was causing the the plane to appear to be moving oddly, but it sure didn't look like a plane, maybe it was the clouds interfering some how.

Then I noticed the moon, so I thought I'm outside already, may as well film the moon. I took two videos that night, the one below and a second one I still have to upload. In the second one I captured a plane, and it sure does look like a lot of UFO videos shot at night seen on Youtube.

Not the best quality, to bright, but I forgot to adjust the white balance, so next time I film the moon hopefully it'll be full of moonly detail.

Triangular UFO Video From Russia

From All News Web "...All agree that it is too large to be a kite and the consensus leans towards a military craft."

Well I'm finding it hard to gauge how big the object is in this video, looks like a kite to me, if you watch carefully you'll see a bird fly by. The videos a little choppy or could the object be blinking?

UFO Video from Russia

I'd say this is remarkable UFO footage, but it looks just a little to good, looks like someone trying out their editing techniques.

District 9 Trailer

Do you guys remember the short film from Neill Blomkamp 'Alive in Joburg' that I posted awhile back, well it's been made into a feature length film called 'District 9' and is produced by Peter Jackson.

The film is about an extraterrestrial race living in slum-like conditions here on earth, no body likes em, but it seems like they have no place to go, pretty interesting concept with a real world message.

False Flag, a Quick Look at War Profiteering and Government Corruption

A beautifully put together short documentary showing the progression of war profiteering and government corruption over the years. Can anyone else see a pattern? Though it is short I feel it brings forward a whole bunch of questions about the worlds history and that to me is what makes it effective, it inspires questions instead of providing answers.

U.S.O, Unidentified Submerged Object Video

The video below shows what is supposed to be an Unidentified Submerged Object, a U.S.O, well I guess it is, it is unidentified. The object moves very quickly and deliberate and looks like a flat bubble.

I don't know what to make of it, it looks both real and C.G at the same time. Surely an underwater camera has better resolution than what we see in this youtube version, I want to see the original.

NZ Paranormal Season 1 DVD

Brad Scott from NZPI was kind enough to send me Series 1 of NZ Paranormal on DVD which was featured on Triangle T.V down here in New Zealand. I think I promised to do a post about the 2-Disc DVD and it majorly slipped my mind, that was like 3 or 4 months ago, Brad if your reading this, I'm so, so sorry.

I missed the run of NZ Paranormal on the tele down here, but I did see all episodes on Youtube which you can still view over at Brad's channel, but after watching the DVDs youtube just doesn't cut it, so if you'd like to enjoy this series to its fullest I'd suggest ordering it from Brad himself at a very reasonable price.

They're working on their second series through 2009 and I get the feeling it's going to be bigger and badder than the first series, so looking forward to it.

Tokoroa, New Zealand UFO Video

Seems to be quite a few odd stories coming out of New Zealand, my homeland lately. The video below was filmed while flying model aircraft in Tokoroa over Easter, it was posted to youtube by a chap named Bruce Simpson, it shows what looks to me like a small object traveling quite fast from left to right of the view. The capture is quite pretty.

Hard to say what it may be, but I'm going for a bird or bug, seen quite a few similar instances while filming myself, though never white in colour like dudes footage.

Don't mind Paul Henry, the host here, he gets on everyone nerves, love it.

From the PA Forums

Thanks to Skunkeen for being such a great contributor to the forums, dare I say the only contributor, well for the most part.

I don't know if they're getting the attention they deserve as I don't have any stats trackers on the forums, so I thought I'd feature his threads here.

Satan Tries To Take Man To Hell (Physically) - A very intense video of a man telling the story of how he fought Satan and won.

Alien remains - I still haven't been able to watch this video in a timely manner, just doesn't seem to work to well for me.

loch Ness in news March 27, 2009 - Interesting report on old Nessie, some footage in here that I don't really recall seeing.

ProjectPoltergeist09's - A youtube project from the peeps of Haunted Homes, interesting to see what T.V paranormal investigators get up to when not on T.V.

Poltergeist on the news, old vid - Poltergeist activity captured by a news crew, skunkeen mentioned this video to me in the chat room awhile ago and we spent ages looking for it, well worth it.

yes we can = thank you satan = lulz - Just a little to creepy.

Victorian 'ghost' picked up by Google Street View
- I've become a little bit of a street view whore because of this, found quite a few odd captures in my local area to.

Well, that's it for now, thank you so much Skunkeen for your finds.

Yellow Top Bigfoot Video

This is from awhile ago and I won't be getting into it to much, just thought I'd post it because if it is faked, then the hoaxers did a great job on the costume.

Said to have been filmed just outside of Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park the video shows what looks like bigfoot, a kind of small one.

Here's a couple links related to this footage.
Yellow Top Sightings - This is the website of those who uploaded the videos to youtube.

Garden State Ghost Hunters Thermal Ghost Video

I know next to nothing about thermal cameras, last time I gained any knowledge whatsoever about them was while watching the movie Predator, so I can't really comment on the video below.

The video comes from the 'Garden State Ghost Hunters Society', filmed with a Thermal Imaging Camera and a regular camera in a non-disclosed location.

The thermal camera picks up what looks like a figure standing at the end of a hall, the team gets closer and it looks to have gone, the regular camera picks up nothing.

Poll: Declassified British UFO Video

The first video I saw in this series was titled EXCLUSIVE UFO VIDEO just released by UK British Government - Declassified 2009, it looked a little to good to be true to me, so I dug around the users account and found a couple more similar videos. The three videos obviously feature the same couple throughout, they may just be lucky or maybe they're up to something.

So I thought I set-up a poll and let the readers decide.

Horror Trailers: The Gate

I still have my childhood illusions intact for this movie, it scared me so much back then I only ever saw it once and judging by the trailer I think I know why The Gatehad such an impact on me, the special effects look amazing, especially for a film released in 1987.

Recent O'Hare UFO Videos a Hoax

For some reason I can't figure out how to edit my original post on the recent O'Hare UFO videos, keeps saying I have an autosave more recent or something.

Anyway turns out it was all a hoax, I'm a little late to the party, surprise. Below is a video about how it was all done. Like the Morristown Hoax this was actually pretty high profile as well. Seems like there's enough people with the will out there to teach us how not to be gullible... what are we on the internet or something.

Beast of Gum Hill Bigfoot Video

Haven't seen a Bigfoot video in awhile that wasn't clearly a hoax or next to useless as evidence, not that this one couldn't be both of those.

Titled the Beast of Gum Hill the video shows a man riding an ATV up a river, I would certainly film something like that for sure (I'm not being sarcastic), so I guess it's a natural situation to be filming in, as we get a shot of up the river a dark figure appears and crosses the river, could it be bigfoot.

The man has a Q & A setup somewhere on the Mid-America Bigfoot Research Center forums.

Croxteth Hall Ghost Video

This ghost video was taken on the grounds of Croxteth Hall, Britain by CCTV, it shows a fuzzy figure that appears to be walking the grounds.

This video seems very similar in setup and appearance to the gas station ghost video and the gym ghost video, though it really is a lot more impressive.

There seems to be a trend when it comes to ghost videos making the mainstream media, they have to be from a security camera of some sort, the ghost has to appear blurry and there can't be any eyewitnesses.

Is the Morristown Hoax a Good Thing?

I really didn't follow the Morristown UFO story, I saw all the headlines, but I just wasn't interested. Now that the hoaxers have come forward, been charged, sentenced and fined the story becomes a little more interesting. Dang just got a few flashbacks of the Georgia Bigfoot Hoax.

Early on in my paranormal blogging I thought about releasing balloons into the sky and filming them, for research purposes only and not to fool anyone, but after a little more thinking quite a few unknowns bugged me, what if the balloons interfered with air traffic, what if the balloons gained to much attention, what if my act created a life long false UFO story for someone. It was just to reckless and I gave up the idea.

Now the Morristown Hoaxers Chris Russo and Joe Rudy I feel have been very reckless, it's wasted a few peoples time and money, interfered with emergency services, but I do like some of what they have to say about gullibility and the UFO community, but I hate the way they tried to teach us a lesson.

So why ask if the Morristown Hoax is a Good Thing? Well, I think it is but not in the way they intended it to be. Along with the Georgia Bigfoot hoax, the Morristown hoax is a good example of why NOT to create a hoax, come forward or get caught and you get punished in some way. Hopefully these two examples is enough to make wannabe hoaxers think twice about trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the public.

Ecto Worm Video

Coming from Paranormal Washington is a pretty interesting video of what they call an Ecto Worm and upon googling Ecto Worm I see that Atrueoriginall is already on the case.

Paranormal Washington say they examined the floor thoroughly and found nothing that could have been the falling object. The object is pretty substantial and if it were physical it probably would have been found, just my opinion though.

Imam Mahdi Captured on Video

I'm just going to through this one out there. The video was shot in Iraq while a ceremony was going on and shows what looks like a dancing light, full figured.

I don't even know if the title of this post is correct, researching the words got me all kinds of confused.

Google Street View UFO Fleet

First off a the link to the story and a link to the Street View thing.

Definitely interesting, it shows 8 silver spheres by my count, but the article says 9. I'm just wondering how much processing and stuff these images go through before being added to Google maps, I don't know, what do you guys think.

Horror Trailers: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Screw that other weekly themed post of mine, TWWIR, that was stupid, mainly because time wasted is boring.

Something I know I can stick to is as simple as posting a trailer for a movie that affected me when I was younger. This weeks trailer is for a movie that was responsible for my most terrifying nights sleep ever. I was about 12 when I saw this movie, I had no idea what I was in for and when it was time for bed, well, I was petrified under the covers all night long, drifting in and out of sleep with visions of chainsaws and a big fella wearing my face.

And that movie was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, before seeing this the likes of Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees filled my nightmares, but they had nothing on how real The Texas Chainsaw Massacre could really be, just a bunch of sadistic nutters that could really be living next door and that's what scared me most, the realization that people like this exist. The news made more sense for me after seeing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

UFOs Seen for 2 Weeks in the Catskill Mountains

What's good about these videos is that they were taken over a 2 week period and taken in different conditions, mainly night as well as day, over the Catskill Mountains.

As individual videos I probably wouldn't have posted about them, but as a collection I think it's a great example of what we don't get a lot of.

The night time videos show a light in the sky, there's a few times where we get some reference, The day time videos also show a light in the sky, one of which shows the object traveling behind some hills. For the most part they saw the object between 7 and 9 PM.

I'm wondering if it could be the moon though, but I'm also unsure if that would fit with the time frames.

Daytime Footage of Triangle UFO from Sonora

Pretty cool footage of a triangle UFO captured during the day. Shot by Mark Olson in Sonora, California in 2004 while Pat Uskert part of the show UFO Hunters was there, he didn't see it though. It was recently featured on UFO Hunters, where they analyzed the footage, where they pretty much concluded it was a UFO, well, that's the message I got.

Sites of Interest: - I think this site is run by Mark Olson.

Ghost Photo Taken at Tantallon Castle

Here's a photo of a ghostly face peering out of a window at the Tantallon Castle, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Christopher Aitchison took the photo in May of last year and only noticed the anomaly once he got home.

The photo was submitted to the 'ghost' photograph project, the project received around 250 ghostly submissions and the public was invited to comment and vote on what photos they thought were the bee's knees, the castle photo took top spot. You can view the top 10 most voted photos at the link.

One explanation that's being discussed is that the face is actually light shinning on rocks behind the bars of the window and I can really see that as a possibility, good old Pareidolia.

Here's a video about this photo and others that were submitted to the project. The dude reporting is at the castle, it would have been nice if he actually checked out the window where the ghost was photographed, I'm so wondering if there's another window in there or a hole even.

UK UFO Files Release for March 2009

The UK government have released a third batch of UFO files which can be viewed over at the UK National Archives website.

I took a look at the smallest file and it's a couple hundred pages long, so I don't think I'll be spending to much time browsing through the files, got enough on my plate. I'm sure the juicy stories will get weeded out, if not already.

Below is a video from the National Archive highlighting some of the images and stories contained in the March 2009 UFO files.

On another note, I know most of you aren't to interested in UFO stories, it shows in the stats, so I'll be concentrating more on finding some creepy ghost videos for ya, though I do still have a hefty back log of UFO videos.

O'Hare Airport UFO Video Surfaces

It's been over two years since the UFO Incident at the O'Hare Airport in Chicago and only now those someone come forward with alleged footage of the UFO in question, but does the video really bring anything useful to the table, even if it is legit?

From the Youtube description "I have sat on this evidence for over 2 years, mainly because of the nature of my background, if you knew who I was then you would understand...", head over to Youtube for the pretty hefty description.

A closer look at the stick-figure alien videos

Mori of Forgetomori takes a close look at a couple of the recent alien videos to pop up, the Peruvian and the Fresno videos, as well as some old favorites.

I've got to admit that for a long time I thought the Ghost Crossing video was the best thing since boxed wine, mind you, back then everything I saw was amazing. Then I saw the Mexican Zoo video and it dawned on me what was going on, went and checked the Ghost Crossing video again and sure enough I realized what was happening.

The Peru video is very similar to the two above, but the Fresno footage is very different, could be real, if not, then it's probably a hoax of some kind.

Head over to Forgetomori to check out the latest two alien videos.

Religious Apparitions in the News in 2008

I think we could all learn a thing or two from this collection of news footage from 2008 covering religious apparitions in things such as toast, whatever the lesson may be, I haven't got a clue, all I know is after viewing the vid something in my brains a changing.

Ghostly Photo Taken on the Yorkshire Moors

Thanks to dg1884 for the heads up on this story, you can check out the full story and the photo of the Yorkshire Moors ghost here.

It's a pretty good photo, it shows a misty, kind of transparent figure, and when I say figure I mean a full on you can almost see fingers figure. I wonder if there will be a follow up.

On another note can you tell I'm skimping on my personal opinions.

Changes to the Site

Hey folks, sorry about the down time in posting, it's been a few weeks since my last real post and that isn't a good trait in a blog and blogger, just been distracted and a little unmotivated. I've been shuffling things around a bit with the site and all and I've actually got a schedule for posting that won't tire me out, should be able to deliver all kinds of interesting paranormal news for y'all every day of the week.

There's a couple things I should point out in the changes I've made with the site. I've totally reorganized the category structure and how they are displayed in the navigation bar at the top of the page, it should be a whole lot easier to find what you may be looking for, a lot more organized and clean.

I've also added a shop featuring a few things I own, I'll be adding to it whenever I buy something, but that may be a ways off, I don't really buy much stuff.

The more substantial changes I've made are the News page and I've scrapped the old blogroll page in favor of an updated Directory page.

The News page features a few of my favorite sources for odd news, I'll be adding to it and hopefully others will find it useful. If you're blogger or webmaster and want your feed added to the News page, just leave a comment on that page asking to be added to it.

The Directory is totally automated, if you're a blogger or webmaster just head on over to the page, click on Add URL, enter your sites details and it should appear in the directory right away, a lot more convenient I think.

I should be on schedule very soon, if not tonight, so i'll check y'all then.

Time wasting week in review 2

There's been quite a slump on the paranormal news front lately, especially decent enough videos. Hopefully with summer on the horizon in the other half of the world the cameras will be out and we'll see an influx of interesting footage. Other than that I haven't spent much time online, been soaking up the last days of summer. I have tied up a few loose ends with the design on Paranormal Activities, especially the images in the sidebar that didn't show in IE, I changed the nav-bars at the top also, looks a little nicer I think and I cleaned up some inconsistencies with fonts and colours throughout the site.

Other than that I've wasted the last couple weeks sipping on beers and hanging out friends, now lets see what the all seeing feed reader has on offer...

Giant Snake Photos from Borneo

So the story goes that photos of a giant snake were photographed from a helicopter in Borneo on January 31, 2009. I first read the story on Cryptomundo and I was sure I had seen the photos ages ago, so I read through the comments on the mundo and sure enough a commenter was quick to point out and bust the story.

Just seems like the story is kind of getting out of hand and i hope I'm not contributing to it.

Video uploaded to youtube in 2007 showing the pictures.

140 Years of UFO Photos

A collection of UFO photos dating back nearly 140 years. I wouldn't normally post compilation videos, but I love how the photos in the video are presented in chronological order. Though, my guess is the video wont be up for long, what with the way Youtube seems to be cracking down on copyright issues, especially with the name of the song and band in description, it'll most certainly be picked up by some kind of algorithm.

Alive in Joburg, Short Film

Here's a short by Neill Blomkamp called Alive in Joburg. The movie's a few years on now, makes me wonder what other gems are out there.

Alive in Joburg is about alien refugees in South Africa, mech wearing, telekinetic, tentacle mouthed aliens that is. If you like Special forces, special effects, mech armor and a film with a message, then you'll enjoy this.

Sky Watching with Rand No.2

Here's some more plane videos for everyone, I titled it differently than the first video because it's more inclusive and flows better. These clips are some of my first attempts at filming objects in the sky, they're pretty shaky, but trust me I do get better.

So far it's been an enjoyable experience and I'm well on my way to having a rock steady camera hand and I've realized a few things about UFO videos on the way, they're probably ten times as hard to capture on video.

Bring Back Frank Black


A few months ago I was contacted by Mark Hayden Co-adminstrator of the site, BTFB is a fan site for the T.V show Millennium which screened back in the late 90s, the thing is BTFB want to bring Frank Black and the Millennium characters back to our screens in a continuation of the Millennium story. They have a lot of info on how you can help bring back Frank Black on their website, including petitions you can sign, letter writing campaigns, tips and tricks on how to get started, they're a very organized bunch that's for sure.

The show centered around former F.B.I profiler Frank Black played by Lance Henriksen, set in the years before the new Millennium.

I remember the show and enjoyed it a lot, but I was in my teens back then and the memories of the show are a little hazy, hell, most of my teen years are a little hazy. In those years I was pretty into The X-Files and when Millennium came along I was instantly hooked, I'd have to say I enjoyed Millennium more, much grittier and quite a lot freakier and the characters and actors drew me in as well.

I hope the folks over at are able to get things brewing, it would be nice to see what happens to the story in a world after the new millennium. If anything the sites a great place for any Millennium fan, interviews and support from some of the former cast members, insights into where the show was headed and where some would have liked the story to go.

I wish the peeps over at all the best and now that I'm an online shopper I've got myself a hankering for some DVD box sets.

Now Canada releases its UFO files

What's with all this government transparency? Seems like a huge push to get these files out there and if you think about it, these wheels would have been put into motion maybe years ago. So what are they hoping to achieve?

France, the U.K and Denmark have released their UFO files, now Canada is coming to the party with their own UFO files. From what I understand the Canadian files are a little more in depth than what the other countries have made available, but after trying to navigate the user interface they have I've given up, can't figure out how to fully use the son of a...

Is all this file releasing designed to cushion us for something bigger? maybe get us ready for a new perceived threat?

Alien Video from Peru

Reaching here I think, the video shot in Santa Rosa de Quives, Peru is said to show an alien being. I lean more towards it being a thin piece of grass to close to a crappy camera.

I better watch out, I've been pretty quick in providing simple explanations lately, I just know I'm gonna eat toe sooner or later.

Somerset Cylinder UFO Video

This video was filmed in July last year, but has only just surfaced. Filmed from a campsite in Brean, Somerset. The video shows what appears to be a large cylindrical, cigar shaped object.

Pretty cool footage, it kind of looks solid, but at the same time it doesn't to me.

Get the full story here.

Or could it be one of these?

Time wasting week in review 1

What I enjoyed online last week is now called Time wasting week in review, I can't stick with anything can I, anyway, flows a little better and makes a nice acronym, TWWIR.

Most of these will not be related to the paranormal at all, but they did take up a substantial amount of my time, so I might as well get some use out it.

For Gamers

First up there's Noobtoob, a weekly video produced by a couple of video game lovers. Each show is about an hour long and they're jam packed with honest to goodness gaming love, lots of swears to. Just loading up the latest episode as write this post.

Survival Ideas
I have quite a thing for outdoor survival, nothing to extreme, but I do like to go out and collect food located around my area, freely available and delicious as well. I also like to see what others are up to and there's some very dedicated folks out there. I spent a good part of last week watching the videos of ryanjcus, who shares on youtube quite a lot on the topic, if you're interested in this kind of stuff his channel is a great resource.

For Film Lovers
Don and Murph also known as Shawn and M.J are a couple dudes who really love their movies. I've been following them on their adventures for quite awhile now, reviewing movies, sharing their DVD collections, watching them in their around the town vlogs and even seeing them be part of actual film productions. Their latest movie review is of the new Friday the 13th, reviewed in character as Don and Murph, spoiler alert, then again you ahould know what to expect from a Jason movie.

In a similar vein to Shawn and M.J, wetmovie1 is a movie lover who likes to make films. I started following him after seeing him in one of Shawn's videos, ever since I just haven't been able to get enough. Here he is in his latest short movie Night Owls 4. Warning not for sensitive ears.

Well that should do it, spent plenty more time last week wasting time, so much in fact, last week is now a blur.

Catch y'all soon with some spooky business.

God of War III, Epic Trailer

As part of my new focus I'm going to be posting about things I wouldn't normally post about here on Paranormal Activities, the first of which should be pretty easy to stick with and it's called "What I enjoyed online last week".

Part of why I was feeling so unfocused with this blog is I waste a lot of time online just entertaining myself, so I thought, why not get some use out of those wasted moments and share with y'all what I enjoy while I'm not focused on P.A.

What I enjoyed most online last week was the epic trailer for the upcoming PS3 game God of War III. I only own a PSP when it comes to gaming, so at this point in time I really have no hope of playing GoWIII, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the awesomeness of the trailer.

And here it is and be sure to check out my full What I enjoyed online last week post coming up next.

Shadowy Figure Captured by 12 Year Old Boy

Thanks to dg1884 for pointing out this video. The video was shot by 12 year old Reece Pitman, while randomly filming his house with his mobile phone. It shows a shadowy figure moving across the view. Reported by The Sun.

I can't explain it, there does seem to be something going on with the bright lighting though and the figure looks pretty close to the camera to me.

Another interesting Ghost Video, 2 days in a row, woot.

Cowboy Ghost Video

From the P.I.T crew comes one of the most interesting ghost videos I've seen in a long time. The video shot from a stationary camera shows an apparition moving past it, it then comes back and we get to see what looks like the ghost of a cowboy.

The video is from an 8 night investigation the P.I.T crew did at an Industrial Facility.

I haven't done this before, but hopefully it works, below is a playlist of all the videos relating to the investigation, I haven't watched them all, but I will after I post this.

What the hell am I doing (site update)

Maybe it's the heat, but I'm finding it really difficult to find my blogging flow lately, I'm concentrating on to much and as a result I get nothing done. I don't feel like I'm in the game like I used to be when it comes to the paranormal, news popped up back then and I was right on it, now I'm days late to blog it. I know I'm spreading myself thin, I run other blogs as well which takes up a good amount of time, though they're in really bad shape compared to Paranormal Activities

I'm just ranting here for my own sake, I should be getting this down on paper, but then again, maybe if I blog it I'll stick to it.

Original Content:

-Well, I've got loads more plane videos, very easy to get online.
-Expose myself on youtube, get your mind out of the gutter, get a vlog going.
-Film local haunts, tell the stories, day time, night vision sucks.
-Living off the land Kiwi Style, Bush Craft videos. Put together a list of topics, mostly wild foods, edit what I've got.
-Short movie, write script, gather props.
-Comic strip, get designs on computer, write a middle and an end lol.

Time management and other content

-Paranormal Activities is now my main focus, blog what I'd blog on my other blogs here, when they fit.
-Bulk bookmark timeless news, videos and content for scheduled blogging once a week.
-Blog timely news, videos and content soon as.
-Incorporate my time wasting internet activity into P.A, maybe a weekly post of what I enjoyed online during the week.
-make time for editing, uploading, filming, drawing.

I'll get around to it.

What do you guys want?
-Constant flow of news?
-Constant flow of creepy videos?
-More community features such as contests, reader stories, user submitted news, links?
-More original content from me, I promise it'll be more interesting than just planes?

You'd think adding a poll to wordpress would be much easier, at this time of the night it ain't, need to look into it when I'm fresher.

Hmm, was good to get that all out, let me now what y'all think, I'm always up for a good critique.

Ghosts/Aliens, For Really Intense Dudes Only

I've just ordered a book online called Ghosts Aliens which as far as I can gather is about the adventures of a regular pair of guys investigating strange activities, such as teleporting Hot Pockets and birds that wink at you and how you can kick their asses. I don't know, sounds like fun, I've enjoyed the promotional material quite a bit like the Ghosts/Aliens site and videos below.

Girl Possessed while using Ouija Board

I've used a Ouija Board once, nothing happened, though we didn't put a lot of effort into it, probably because if we had something could have happened and we'd be screwed, well that's the thought that pops up in my head every time Ouija is mentioned.

My first impression of the video below was that it looked fantastically authentic, then I read the users profile, she's a filmmaker, bunked already, so why am I posting it? well, it's top notch stuff, I love things that invoke an emotional reaction in me, which this did and not a lot of things on youtube do that for me.

EDIT: Reading through the comments on youtube it looks like the user isn't really giving to much away about the authenticity of the footage, the tone leans toward it being real, so who knows.

Barriers to Innovation and Inclusion at NASA

This homemade film written and produced by NASA astronaut Andrew Thomas illustrates some of the real barriers to Innovation at NASA. The scenarios played out in the video are based on actual events, it's no wonder NASA seems to take forever to get things going.

The story behind this video.
About Andrew Thomas.

Plane Spotting with Rand

Not all that interesting, the font doesn't suit the footage and there's a lot more to come, how's that for a riveting introduction.

I've found that filming moving objects in the sky is actually very tricky, so I've been practicing on planes, luckily there's no shortage of planes flying over head where I live and probably not so lucky for you guys I'm up to about 2 dozen videos like the one below, but I promise you they do get better and you'll see the practice paying off.

So join me in enjoying (meh) Plane Spotting with Rand.

Remember to head over to youtube to enjoy it in HD.

Night of the Army of Blade Runner

Howdy y'all, been a bit slack, but frankly I just haven't seen anything worth posting. Been working on a few videos in that time and you should get a look at my mug soon enough. Editing video takes so dang long, I have to render my HD video files just to be able to edit them together in a workable fashion, then I have to render them again, rendering takes ages.

On another note I've been doing some online shopping, something I have never done. I was looking for props for a project I'm working on, but my head started to hurt after seeing the options available, so I'm just gonna hunt what I need down on foot. I bought some DVDs instead.

I bought three DVDs in total, first is one of my favorite movies of all time, Army of Darkness. Never get tired of this cheesy, horror comedy.

Next I got a movie I saw a lot when I was younger, loved it but haven't seen it in a very long time, The Return of the Living Dead, another horror comedy, great costumes and props in this movie.

And the last DVD I got for the reason I can never remember properly, I know the story, I know what it's about, it's like the specifics get wiped from my mind, I guess that's a good thing, keeps the movie fresh, it's Blade Runner.

Denmark Releases UFO Files

Seems like there's a move for governments worldwide to release their UFO files, we've had the French and the U.K, now we have Denmark releasing its UFO files.

I'm in the process of downloading the PDF of the files now, which from what I've read are in Danish, but I'm sure an online Danish to English translator could be helpful, like this one.

And here's the link to the PDF file.

UPDATE: Should have realized like the other countries files, the PDF contains scans of the original documents, no copying and pasting into a translator. Good old manual input and I'm buggered if I'm doing that, I sure someone far more dedicated than myself will be right on it, then all I have to do is link to their work, hehe. Anyway, I may have a go at translating one or two.

Nick Pope on Fox News Talking about UFOs

What was this interview in relation to, was it just a random feature? It's interesting to see how coverage of UFOs in mainstream media has changed quite a bit. For one not in the know, I'd think this report would come across as if a U.K government official has just exposed info about the MoD engaging in dogfights with UFOs. The Fox reporters still have those smug looks on their faces, but they barely challenge Nick Pope's claims.

The reporting is a little slack as well, they had no knowledge of the MoD UFO files, they seemed a little blind sided, especially for something I consider to be one of the bigger UFO stories of last year.

UFOs Filmed in Vancouver by Bigfoot Researcher

This video shot in Vancouver, BC is pretty long, it shows three stationary bright lights amongst some trees caught with a night vision camera. It looks real enough to me, but judging what the lights may be could be pretty tricky, so I'll leave it at that.

The video was uploaded to youtube by trailriderresearch awhile ago, may have been covered to death, but what I found intriguing is the footage was captured by a Bigfoot researcher, and as far as Bigfoot is concerned he has some pretty alternative ideas. To tell you the truth I'm not to convinced by the other videos on this channel, but I do appreciate the interesting ideas put forward by trailriderresearch.

Alien Running Beside a Car Caught on Video

The video shows what looks like an Alien running beside a moving vehicle, said to have been filmed in Russia, some also think it may be a skeleton (ghost?).

Maybe this is an old video, from the description of it I got the sense it may have already been discussed elsewhere.

In the end it looks like bird poo on the window to me.

Kind of like this classic.

Finding Ghosts While Exploring Old Building (Video)

There doesn't seem to be any trickery going on in this video, just a bunch of dudes with a camera exploring a rundown old building. There are two instances where we get to see something ghostly which are pointed out pretty thoroughly in the video.

I found both hard to see without them being pointed out.

Mirror Ghost (Video)

This is an innocent enough video, three people singing happy birthday while the mirror in the background captures a ghostly apparition and then suddenly falls to the ground.

I'd say if you wanted to fake this it would take a lot of patience and the right kind of software, lol, pretty obvious.

Did a UFO Fly Over Obama's Inauguration? (video)

Or is it just a bunch of hype for nothing more than a bird? People say birds couldn't possibly move that fast, well I challenge those people to go sit outside for more than a minute and watch some birds fly about, they're like tiny rockets out there.

I'm amazed at how many times I've captured birds on video that look like disc shaped UFOs moving at extreme speeds, how do I achieve this? just zoom in a little and point the camera towards the sky, I bet you you'll capture all kinds of UFO activity, maybe even a few rods.

The footage comes from CNN coverage of Obamas presidential inauguration.

The Grasdorf Plates

So I've actually done a little bit of research into this one, the problem is it's like the story fell of the face of the planet. The three Grasdorf plates, made up of a gold, silver and a bronze plate (discs), measuring about 12 inches in diameter and of very high purity where found 9 or so days after the discovery of a very large crop circle, by a curious dude who stole the things. Later selling them to a collector, who supposedly melted down the gold one and sold it off.

I don't know, I really can't make heads or tales from the information available so I'll link to all the articles I could find.

3 Metal Discs Found In Germany

3 Metal discs found in the Grasdorf Pictogram, Germany 1991

Those Mysterious Gold Plates Discovered Beneath Crop Circles In Germany Which Have The Same Design On Them

So what do you guys think, expensive hoax? or do you look forward to the day new info arises.

The videos are from an old FOX report where you'll get a brief glimpse of the plates.

Lake Monster Photo from Argentina

Ever heard of the Nahuelito? I hadn't, but thanks to Cryptomundo I now have. Nahuelito is a lake monster said to live in Nahuel Huapi Lake, Patagonia, Argentina. Cryptomundo has just posted a new photo that is claimed to be of the creature, but it looks just a little to good to me.

It's a detailed post with links to previous research and photos about the creature, sure worth the jump if your into lake monsters.

How to Fake UFO Photographs

Some food for thought, just how easy would it be to fool people into thinking what they are seeing is authentic UFO evidence. It's just way to easy to fake UFO photographs.

Michael Shermer, founder of The Skeptics Society, takes a look at just how easy it is by arming a bunch of youngsters with cameras and materials for making their own pint sized UFOs, the results look pretty authentic.

Enjoying summer way to much

Sorry folks for the lack of posts lately, I've been enjoying summer down here way to much, camping and enjoying the outdoors.

Just a couple days ago I was up at my bosses farm, it was a great day full of activities, I drove a quad for the first time and shot a gun for the first time, it was fricken great. The area is beautiful to, great community and it seemed like a great life style.

I really wouldn't mind living that life, out on the farm, living a little more self sufficiently, instead of the convenience of the city. Looks like I may actually have a goal in life now and I'm really going to have to step up my game and work harder and smarter. With that I'm going to try and post at least one blog post every single day.

I'll leave y'all with a few photos from my summer so far.

Ed and Lorraine Warren's Occult Museum

Well, to tell you the truth I really don't recall reading about Lorraine and the late Ed Warren, I'm sure I have, especially with my interest in the Amityville Horror, I'm just terrible with names, though give me a face and I'll give you a place, date and a retelling of the situation.

I guess with any famous paranormal investigators there's always a little controversy, seems like quite a bit with Ed and Larraine, but I won't get into that here, what I'm interested in is their Occult museum. I've always wondered where unwanted haunted objects might end up and I guess Ed and Lorraine's museum is one of those places.

Not sure if the museum is still up and running, but if anything we can all get a taste of it through the videos below and believe me there's a little bit of creepsville to be seen.

Most haunted Live

Most Haunted

Those ancient spirits of evil lie lurking around every corner and that's why the
Most Haunted team are taking on an unprecedented
project that will see them visiting places so scary even the most war-hardened super
soldier would scream in abject terror if they
had to spend the night there.

Yvette Fielding and the team of ghost-hunters and paranormal investigators will
brave these nocturnal battle grounds to invoke the twisted,
tortured spirits that skulk about in these wretched abodes.

In normal humans this would ordinarily cause great agitation and anxiety but not
this motley crew, oh no. They feed on fear and are unflinching.
They valiantly do it so you don't have to, battling deplorable poltergeists and
confronting spectacular spectres to unveil seven terrifying forms
of restless spirits over the course of seven terrifying nights. Be afraid!

Evil Ghost Girl Video

Not sure if this is an evil ghost girl, most of the headings I've seen describe it as such, so I'll follow along. Bugger all info that I can find about this video, but it is very creepy. I've seen some very obvious fakes quite similar to this video.

Nice creep out anyway.

Zooming the Moon

To me it always seems like the moon is cheating the sun out of something when it comes out during the day, you never get people saying hey, look the suns out but you get that with the moon, then again if you look at the sun the wrong way you may go blind.

I was just testing out my camera in the video below which only has 12x optical zoom, but goes up to something like 150x digital, which when used creates a lot of noise. Some of the lower end cameras I was looking at have far greater zoom capabilities, but what you gained with that you lost in video quality.

My video isn't all that interesting, but I love the way the clouds start to roll on through when I'm zooming out near the end.

Character Design for Comic Strip

So I've been thinking up ideas for comic books since a youngster, for the most part I'd go through a design produce then quit the bugger. I hope that doesn't happen with what I'm working on at the moment.

Below is a design for one of the characters in the comic strip, just a quick draft, trying to figure out how I want to illustrate it, pen and ink, pencil, full colour, black and white etc. I like the result of the photoshoped image below, but I don't know if I could handle full on colour.

I'm going to blog the illustrations I've done slowly, maybe one set a week and eventually a full web comic.

The comic is set in the future, there's robots, advanced technology and a hint of the paranormal, I'll reveal more as I post more pics.

Let me know what y'all think.
