Weakly Ghost Bulletin #3

25 January, 2015 // 1 Comment

At the end of each year I compile a ‘The Worst Ghosts of…’ list and 2014 was no exception. The #1 spot on the 2014 list went to the stupid Black Eyed Kids sightings coming out of Cannock’s Chase at the hands of paranormal author Lee Brickley and at the end of the list for last year I made a prediction, as follows: I predict [...]

Thoughts On The “End” of Page 3

20 January, 2015 // 0 Comments

Update: At the time of writing this post (Jan 20) it seemed Page 3 had come to an end. Today (Jan 22) it seems that this wasn’t the case and that it continues to exist. Sneaky. It seems that The Sun newspaper have discontinued the tradition of including a topless woman on Page 3 (update: no, they haven’t.) There have been some odd [...]

11 January, 2015 // 8 Comments

In December the British Government blocked the legal recognition of humanist marriages because it was seen as a ‘fringe’ issue.  Andrew Copson of the British Humanist Association called this decision an insult, pointing out that ‘under this government, Scientologists have been added to the list of religions that can perform legal [...]

It will be a week by week update on any ridiculous and weak ghost stories that have made it into the mainstream news in the past seven days. As this is the first bulletin of 2015 I am going to include the last ten days. Watch Terrifying Ghost Pursue Car This [...]

Thoughts On Experiences Of Skeptic Podcasting

29 December, 2014 // 2 Comments

About six years ago I was asked by a friend if I’d contribute to a podcast he’d had the idea to start. There was a real lack of British skeptical podcasts at that time – especially those that focussed on weird news stories. We were both paranormal researchers who had come to the dark side (skepticism). I said yes, we recorded an [...]

UPDATED: The add The Martian by Andy Weir to the book, which I read after writing this (but still during 2014) This post is inspired by a similar one written by Samanta Stein. I received a Tablet for Christmas 2013 on which I have the Kindle App which saw the amount of books I got through in 2014 rocket. There are so many books that I have read [...]

Ghosts For Christmas

24 December, 2014 // 0 Comments

As a self confessed ghost geek I am really interested in modern paranormal phenomena of all shapes and sizes. I also love reading ghost stories, with The End of The Line being one of the best books I read in 2914. It’s an anthology of horror stories based on or around underground railway systems which I bought because the real life ghost [...]
