Zak makes haunting music


Las Vegas producer and TV star Zak Bagans of Travel Channel’s high-rated paranormal series “Ghost Adventures” has joined forces with Lords of Acid’s Praga Khan for one of the most intriguing music releases ever produced, “NecroFusion,” due out Oct. 23 in time for Halloween. Each one of the 11 tracks on “NecroFusion” not only tells the story of a departed soul who, for whatever reason, has not crossed over, but also includes an audio message from the spirit — “electronic voice phenomena,” or EVP.


Zak, whose series “Paparazzi Paranormal” premieres Friday night, told me: “Spirit communication is the most powerful communication I’ve encountered. The most powerful messages are delivered through music, and music truly influences the way you feel; it stimulates the emotional memories of your life. With ‘NecroFusion,’ we’ve blended together these two powerful forms of communication — spirit and music. And the earthbound spirits have a lot to say. The result is abstract, sinister, illuminating and haunting.”

Part of me laughs and part of me groans … P. T. Barnum would be so proud. “This Way to the Egress.

Having said that, I am interested in “Paparazzi Paranormal” if for no other reason than that Joshua P. Warren is connected with it. I have read  several of Warren’s essays on the paranormal and like what I’ve read.

Ghost Adventures – Underground In The Edinburgh Vaults

This week finds our brave Ghost Adventures team in Edinburgh, Scotland. Would that make the show Ghost Adventures International? While I may, at times, question the bravery of our fine team of adventurers.I have to admit that they are brave enough to board a plane and fly across the Atlantic. A feat that, at least, one member of the “Ghost Hunters” cast is unable to perform.

The “Vaults” of Edinburgh Scotland allegedly have a large variety of paranormal activity. It is the home of the villainous “Mr. Boots”, a spirit who threatens people with a shout of “get out”!  He is also believed to throw stones and is violent with women.

This program had many of the same elements of the other Ghost Adventures episodes. Zak would taunt the spirit with frat-boy-like bravado only to freak out at smallest noise. I have to admit that the Scooby Doo behavior of the crew is my favorite part of the show.

The boys managed to gather a few interesting bits of evidence. They picked up some odd noises and an EMF spike. However; very little was done to debunk those sounds or to track down a possible explanation for the EMF spike. The sound that I found most interesting sounded like that of a dog; sadly, there was no follow up.

The most intriguing piece of evidence was the movement of a teddy bear that was set up as a trigger object. Zak had reported feeling several strong drafts of cold air. Would that explain the movement of the bear? Sadly, we will never know.

Most Haunted

I watched Most Haunted last night. For those of you who are not familiar with the show, the show trys to be a paranormal investigation type program. The cast is Yvette Fielding, Karl Beattie, Brian Shepherd, and Dr. Ciaran O’Keeffe. This week the team investigated the Chislehurst Caves.

I have to admit that I get a big laugh out of this program. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy it, but the investigative style of the crew makes Most Haunted an entertainment program rather than an investigation type of program.

This week’s episode is a perfect example of my point. Karl separated from the group and gets lost in the caves. Historian Lesley Smith screams Illegitimi (bastard) at the top of her lungs in an attempt to insult an entity.

Can you imagine how the crew explained to people what they did during their vigil. Well, first we got lost and then later we called the ghosts bastards and went home.

I have to admit that I enjoyed it. They are the Laurel and Hardy of paranormal investigation. It certainly was more entertaining than the presidential debates, talk about Laurel and Hardy.
