This is the first time we've looked into the UFO side of the paranormal horror culture, but this particular story is one of the longest-lived UFO sightings in the history of Oregon! After the UFO sightings of McMinnville, we have the Haunting of Geiser Grand Hotel in Baker City--which seems to be possibly one of [...]

Jeffrey Dahmer: Trying to Understand a Killer

Jeffrey Dahmer: Trying to Understand a Killer

There are a lot of people that are interested in learning about serial killers, perhaps because they're interested in the demented psychological aspect of it, perhaps because they adore the macabre, others still are interested in the criminal aspect and trying to understand how or why killers do what they do. To be honest, I'm one of those people--my own interests lie somewhere between the educational and the macabre; I'm simply fascinated by how a child who, much like Jeffrey Dahmer, seems to go from having a typical dysfunctional family life and childhood to cannibalism and necrophilia. Trust me when I say I take no personal joy in these types of stories, so much as I want to see how these people come into existence in the first place.

Poisson d’avril: The French April Fool’s Day

Many people look forward to the first of April, it gives them a chance to play pranks and joke around with people they otherwise wouldn't. This year during the global pandemic that has ravaged our global community and economy, people are being told not to play pranks today.

Well, yes and no, because everyone needs a way to lighten the mood, but the spirit of this fun can be taken too far and enter the spectrum of mean spiritedness.

This week I dove into ghost ships, both the scientific theories of how they exist (and they do!) as well as the lore that surrounds them, but I also did two more Lovecraft-centric articles, one about the creatures that were made famous years after his death, as well as a sort of send-off to his legacy as an author. There are a lot of less than cheery parts of his personal viewpoints that I purposefully neglected to speak about, as they did little to actually contribute to his work in the realm of horror, so while they may be incredibly relevant when in regards to him as a human being, I didn't feel as if they were relevant to his body of work.

Another installment of the Dead Author Dedication for Lovecraft this week, where I wrote about the literary works he completed within his lifetime--this also got me heavily into reading pulp magazines which were popular at the time. After Lovecraft, I discussed how the human race is genetically engineered to have a deeply seated fear of [...]
