I've written in the past about what I see as a contradiction between ultra right wingers -- especially Trump supporters -- and the world of the weird. Recent actions by the POTUS have me wondering, once again, why this is so. Those who are UFO, cryptid, anomalous researchers who are also crazy over Trump baffle me. How coul

Urban legends are often based on truths. Our real fears, the elaborate retellings of actual events, cultural frameworks, beliefs and values, regional lore, and good old scare and thrill the hell out of  your friends are part of urban legends.One I remember that I believed was the giant cockroach at UCLA.

Not to say males have been notoriously lousy with each other when it comes to UFO Land ... And Beyond! -- but women in this field have also experienced really vile stuff. No, this is not 'old news' --- it's been going on, it  continues to go on.I've been a feminist since I was fifteen. That's a few months s

Nothing much, but the ever attuned mystic-synchro mind couldn't help but note that today:     Woke up with a nosebleed. Me, at 64. Used to get them all the time when I was a child. But now?     Nothing so sinister, alien wise. Far more likely that the nosebleed had to do with

1988, Eugene, OR:I had coffee with "Sheila." Sheila had a story to tell me. (I don't remember who "Sheila" was -- a co-worker? I think.) Sheila, involved with many contactees, occasionally gives workshops on the "UFO thing." Her story: one night, a woman called her, saying she felt very ill. So ill, she was take

"Stories are data with a soul." ~ Brene BrownMs. Brown has nothing to do with UFO or fringe research. She describes herself as a "storyteller researcher" (or researcher storyteller) in social work. Brilliant and funny and very important, but for completely different reasons having nothing to do with

I recently posted here at the Orb that medium Amy Allen has occasionally come across aliens during her investigations into haunted places. The most recent encounter with aliens -- yes, as in ET -- h

The fantastic score by composer Bernard Hermann to The Day the Earth Stood Still. (The original, not the remake.) Love it.I was reminded of this score as I was listening to Greg Bishop on Coast to Coast last night. Fun interview. I like Bishop's take on things UFO

The Dead Files medium, Amy Allan, mainly communicates with once human spirits. Sometimes entities, shape shifters, energies that were once human but became . . . something else. But a few times, (a very few times) Allan has come across aliens, as in ET.A recent episode of The Dead Files had Amy All

Alfred Lehmberg, one of the few people out there writing about All This Stuff that makes us think. Sadly, Lehmberg is still unappreciated -- a lot of people mock him (because they don't get it) some harass him, others ignore. I think the latter is the worst.  It's not just about specific cases and events, but a meta vi

Nick Redfern has a couple of new pieces at Mysterious Universe on the possibility that what crashed at Roswell was not a UFO full of ETs, but a human engineered event.Roswell is important because: we need to find out what happened. What really happened. "...

Jim mentioned awhile ago that I dream a lot about animals. He finds this unusual. He also has an active dream life, but doesn't dream about animals that much. I don't know if it's unusual or not, but I do dream a lot about animals, both real and imaginary.I'm inspired once again to start an animal journal. About

My spouse and I were discussing that thing within all of us, that is not "us" but an intentional energy that messes with our heads and always in negative ways.

Another strange dream of aliens the other night. This one contains one of my many dreamscapes, or "stage sets" -- recurring locations, with a new scene. The recurring dreamscape is of a large, rustic, two story building. A combination of house and school, apartments, conference rooms, theater. Large but also comfy. Som
