Hey, Party at ground zero!
You guys all doing ok? I'm fine but things do seem a little slow around here. Must just be a normal paranormal winter slow down (say that 3 times fast). I suspect that things will pick up after the first of the January. Nothing like a brand spankin' new year to really get the freakiness flowing. Course it's only 30 days or so until my birthday (insert big false cheer here) Nothing like getting older....oh yeah. (I think I'll cut this line of thought off right about here)
While I was out on the road last summer I found myself at the Alamo. (and no I wasn't looking for my bike in the basement, smart guy) Not being content with the usual tourist rubbernecking I started asking questions and it wasn't long until I found myself at the local library poring over badly Xeroxed copies of old documents looking for clues about a 70 year old ghost hunt. I found some interesting facts, mixed them with some half-baked theories of my own and made up a nice new Freakopedia entry. I may be on to something or I might just be f-f-foolin' myself (as Def Leppard use to say) Either way I beg of you to give it a chance. So head on over to my new story on the Alamo and read away. Your English teacher will be glad ya did.
THE CHINA SYNDROME
Got a cool book from a publisher called "China Books"
The book is called "China's Major Mysteries" and it's by Paul Dong. Basically it's an update of his first book that was published in 1984 and it's really an interesting read cause up until recently you couldn't really talk about weird stuff in China without risking getting thrown in prison. These days lips are allowed to be a little looser and there's all kinds of reports flying out of there. UFO's, wildmen, psychic powers and anything else you can think off seem to be crawling out of the Chinese woods faster than you can say, "steamed rice". Since they sent me a free copy I thought I'd pass the savings on to you so I'm giving this sucker away in this weeks newsletter. If you wanna chance to win, you better go sign up.
Bob the Nomadic Drifter from Parts Unknown (at least that's how he describes himself in an e-mail) sent me this interesting picture of himself. I'm not sure what drinking and watching out for mountain sheep have to do with each other
but if I was to hazard a guess I would say that it's probably something illegal. Bob, be careful out there.
OK, boys and girls I'm outta here. I've been seeing all that concrete in front of the Supreme Court and I'm just itching to try and skate it.
