Retro Halloween Safety

I have quite a treat for you. Below are three Halloween Safety videos dating from 1977 to the early 1980s. I had a great time watching these several times just a few nights ago. For me, there is so much nostalgia packed in these videos, but also some rules and scenarios that seem so funny in 2014. Remember the overblown fear of razor blades and tampered candy, even though no cases even exist? It’s mentioned below. 

I wonder if I actually watched any of these as a child. I can just picture myself in one of my elementary school classrooms, watching the film strip with the familiar crackle in the background. I wonder how children these days would take to watching these? I’m considering showing them to my students at school in a few weeks, just to see what they think.

15 Reasons to Befriend a Paranormal Nerd Today!

Today is February 5, 2014. It is also my 2nd Blogiversary! In honor of this day, I give you 15 candid reasons to befriend a paranormal nerd! Hopefully, some of you will be encouraged to find a new friend TODAY! Or maybe you’re sitting at home with a spirit box or set of dowsing rods in your hands. Yeah I’m talking to you! No plans this weekend? You’ll want to share this immediately!

 

15 Reasons to Befriend a Paranormal Nerd Today!

 

1.    As we tend to very open-minded, we don’t think you’re crazy when you tell us about your experiences, but depending on what subgroup of the paranormal we belong to, don’t be offended when we set out on a mission to “debunk” it. 

2.    Think you have a ghost or spirit trying to contact you? We’re likely to have a plethora of meters and gadgets to help make that connection, and we can’t wait to show you how it all works! And if our gadgets don’t spark a conversation, we’ve always got plenty of friends who claim to be “sensitive”.


3.    According to my friend Tim, we “know whether it’s time to buy a new lamp or if Aunt Matilda’s threat to haunt you was legit.” Ohhh Tim… does this come from experience? 

4.    We can help to explain our favorite acronym lingo, such as EVP, ITC, EMF, IR, UV, OBE, ADC, DBE, ESP, PK, K2, and mG.

5.     On a serious note, according to Rachel, “They are intuitive and empathic. They don’t see the world in black and white, they see many more colors! Plus, there is a sense of peace about them. Maybe it’s because they have some insight on the afterlife.” I absolutely love Rachel’s way with words. 

6.    Are you at a party or with a group of people who tend to be on the boring side? That awkward silence doesn’t bother us. We’re used to carrying on conversations with ghosts that typically don’t answer back, therefore we don’t easily get bored. Though we’ll likely keep the conversation going, don’t be offended if we accidentally blurt something like “If you can hear me, knock three times” or “How did you die?”


7.    Are small animals disappearing from your neighborhood? Have no fear. We’re on it… and we know exactly what a Bigfoot call sounds like!

8.    We’ll be the first to tell you that your no-good horrible very bad day was not your fault, because Mercury is in retrograde!

9.    We’ll prove or disprove the orb photo taken at your nephew’s birthday party in no time flat! (Ahem… the ones who know what they’re talking about will tell you that even though it appears to have a face inside, or devil horns, or a personality, or like to be called “Beverly”, there are eleventy-thousand likely explanations for it, and then let you decide for yourself.)

10.  We paranormal people who are also investigators are often willing to invite others to the next big investigation! And we can’t wait to share our favorite stories or our “Class A” EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena).


 
11.   Not feeling well? Going through a bad experience? We can break out the crystals and send you rooms full of “love and light”!

12.   We know how to begin the research to learn the history of your home, or genealogy research to learn about your ancestors!

13.   Ever suspect your family pet of learning how to access the refrigerator while you’re sleeping? We’ve got night vision cameras. Just ask us. 


14.   Need sage for house blessing or clearing? We know just where to get it. 

15.   Need to borrow a black shirt, polo, or hoodie? Take your pick. Oh sorry… here’s some tape to cover up that logo.

 

Through social media, I went to some of my friends and faithful readers for help on this one. I’d like to thank Rachel, Tim, Stacey, Cassie, Cathy, and Dar for their additional thoughts and contributions to this post!

Outtakes and Bloopers…

 

How about some light fun and humor today!? Some of you may have seen this already this week. I am the founder of Missouri Spirit Seekers (MOSS) and several months ago I put together this blooper video from many of our past investigations. I had no intention of making it public, but my team convinced me to do so. Enjoy! 🙂
