I’ll come right out and say it – I’m a big fan of the team over at WhoForted? Blog and have been for a while now. Mainly because of the fart-based pun in the name, partly because Dana does an awesome BigFoot call, but also because of the constant stream of quality content produced and uploaded to the site – genuinely interesting stories from the weird world we live in that you probably wont see talked about in many other places. In 2011 WhoForted? Blog premiered the documentary ‘The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching‘ which you can watch here for free. It’s really interesting, insightful and fun.
Not too long after that they launched a new venture called ‘Planet Weird’ which promises to engage the strange, and investigate questions such as ‘How does Bigfoot get it on? Why do space aliens want to stick things up our butts so badly? If you cast a curse on your ex-girlfriend and she bites it, can you go to jail?’. I’m very excited. They released a sneak peak of the project being released this Summer that really whets the appetite. It reminded me hugely of the many hours I spent out in the field getting no results only for something completely unexpected to happen that makes your heart pound and the adrenaline rush through your system. You can watch it below. It makes me want to go out monster or ghost hunting, like the old days. Maybe I should…
Anyway, I’m not here to reminisce. I wanted to let my readers know about the newest project from those Mystery Gang rejects over at WhoForted? Blog. Greg and Dana have started working on weekly video round-ups of the strange news breaking across the globe. Called ‘Week in Weird’ you can catch the videos on their website or by subscribing to them on Youtube.
I’m not just kissing ass here, but I think you should check it out. I know I’m a skeptic and I’m supposed to not like weird shit like this, but I do and I’m unapologetic. The WhoForted? Blog tea probably wouldn’t describe themselves as skeptics in the way I do, but I think we take the same approach to ghosts, monsters, aliens etc.
Weird stuff happens to people all around the world every single day and it deserves out attention. Right now somewhere someone is freaking about because something just went down. I love keeping up to date with weird news and WhoForted? Blog is right up there in the top websites I check out on a regular basis, along with The Anomalist, The Gralien Report, The Spooky Isles, Cryptomundo and Daily Grail to name a few. Do I always agree with them? No, but we’re not here to always agree. Weird stuff happens, and unless we pay attention to it, it remains a mystery.
Below is the latest Week in Weird, and the first can be found here. Enjoy.
