Ladies and gentlemen, and honored subscribers…

Thank you for being a part of this very special awards ceremony! Tonight’s ceremony and awards have been brought to you by this very post (the 85th), my Dell PC, and WordPress Stats. There is no budget for this evening… no flashy opening number… and no real corporate sponsors or commercials, so let’s get right to it!

 

The award for The Big Séance’s Top Viewed Post goes to…. Energy, Paranormal Fiction and Romance

Ohhh thank you! Actually, I’ll be accepting and explaining all of the awards this evening, therefore I’ll just stay up here so I don’t have to risk my life tripping over these Prada heels. Just kidding… they’re Payless.

I’ll admit that the attention this post got still shocks me! It was pretty early on in this blog’s history (only months ago) and I was struggling to come up with a post for that day. I remember thinking it was absolutely dorky,  but I needed a topic and wanted to stay consistent. If you read the comments, I was scolded for making light of the topic. Well, I stand corrected. This was also the post with the most comments, including some surprising responses from authors from the same genre.

 

The other nominees for Top Viewed Posts, listed in their respected ranking order are…

#2 – Black Eyed Kids

No… it might not be as strange as those bath salts inhalers who head to the streets to snack on someone’s face or thigh, but black eyed kids are still pretty interesting, and probably just as scary. And believe it or not, “black eyed kids hoax” is the most commonly searched term or phrase that brings people from the search engine world to my blog. In fact, it happens so often that you may have found this post by searching this very phrase. If so, you are truly a paranormal nerd and I love and respect you for that!

 

#3 – Coming Out of the Paranormal/Spiritual Closet 

This was a relatively short but heartfelt post where I simply asked my readers the question “How do you balance your “paranormal/spiritual” life and interests with your “normal” life in the “real world” (such as job, Walmart, family situations, etc) where it might not be as socially accepted to be that nerdy?” 

 

#4 – Phonemes, Allophones, and Cinnamon Buns…

This post truly may give some of you cinnamon bun eyes! Actually, I think may folks clicked on this post due to the deliciously misleading picture. Come on… you know you want to click it now.

 

#5 – Abandoned Farmhouse Investigation…

This was a fairly recent post, and one of several having to do with MOSS’s recent investigation of a really interesting abandoned farmhouse. The online version of this report and several pieces of evidence will be posted at www.mospiritseekers.com very soon.

 

And now… the LEAST viewed post… THE LOSER is…

……………..  (these dots are a drum roll)…………….. What’s your favorite word for “ghost”?

Can you believe it? I can’t! Like 2 people saw this one! It’s GHOSTS, people! Ghosts are probably why you’re here. GO THERE NOW!

 

As of this very minute The Big Séance has had just over 4,200 total views with 109 views on his best day (yes, I just attached a gender to my blog).

 

Also as of this very minute, this blog has been read by people from 47 different countries! It may not be a surprise to hear that the top countries were the US, UK, and Canada (in that order).

 

And now… the award we’ve all been waiting for!

The most important award for the evening! Someone’s life is about to change! You can look for her on the talk show circuit first thing tomorrow morning!

The most talkative commenter (other than myself :-) ) award goes to…

………. (drum roll again)………….

…with 57 comments… ASH!!!! 

 

Thank you folks, we’ll now take you to your local news, already in progress!

 


Black Eyed Kids

A still from the new film Black Eyed Kids.

Who’s at the door?

So, the doorbell rings, interrupting Dancing With the Stars, and you rush to answer, hoping you can deal with whoever it is quickly. You find a child on your doorstep. Not just any child though, there is something about this child that just doesn’t seem right… and… he has pure black eyes. No, he wasn’t in a fight… his eyeballs are entirely black. This boy may be innocent looking, but maybe not. He speaks in monotone and asks to come inside your house. Maybe he needs help. You can feel the hair-raising on the back of your neck.

Maybe you’re not at home. Maybe you’re getting into your car to head home from work. In your rear view mirror you see two pairs of black eyes staring back at you. You scream, jump out of the car, and shut the door… only the mysterious children have disappeared into thin air. Do you get back in the car and drive home? And what happens if you take the kids home or let them in your house? What then? Will I turn into a fat black eyed man?

They’re called “black eyed kids” and the topic is popping up more and more frequently in paranormal circles. While researching this topic tonight I discovered there is even a film, Black Eyed Kids, being produced in Canada.

Urban Legend?

Is it an urban legend that began around the turn of the current century? Are they aliens? Really cool contacts from Claires? Is it all just a really large hoax? Many don’t think so. I have to say, even though I force myself to stay open to possibilities in the paranormal, this is one that I struggle to take seriously. I come across the stories and giggle, but I never spend too much of my energy thinking about the topic. I teach tons of children, some strange, some just as nerdy as me, and some even sing in monotone, but I’ve never run away from them screaming (I’ve come close though) and none of them have pure black eyes. Purple or green hair, maybe. But many people don’t believe in ghosts until they seem them, either.

There is a new book by David Weatherly, who is keeping up with this phenomenon.

You can also hear David’s recent interview with Jim Harold on The Paranormal Podcast.

So… Do you take this one seriously? Have you run into a black eyed kid?
