Stuffed in a sock and placed in a shoebox that was tucked inside a plastic bag and cunningly hidden at the back of my wardrobe, I managed to find a spare half hour to do the news.
- Hurricane Katrina has been downgraded to a category 4, but it’s still threatening New Orleans and the city’s residents have been ordered to evacuate.
- Duncan Burden, managing director of Priory Publications (GB) Ltd, responds to a Phenomena Magazine editorial that cynically dismissed the Maranatha Puzzle.
- Chilean authorities have broken up the Colonia Dignidad commune, home to escaped Nazis and sympathisers. That’s Hitler in the senior-citizen-buggie, attempting one last getaway.
- The mysterious flight, and the subsequent crash in Scotland, of Hitler’s deputy Fuhrer, Rudolf Hess.
- 95-year-old Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is leaving the UK in disgust because of the country’s involvement in the Iraq war. If you’re a follower in the UK, I wouldn’t worry, he threatened the same thing when John Lennon first dated Yoko.
- I’ll repost this because the images are incredible. Mysterious lights in the New Mexico sky are eerily similar to the Phoenix Lights. The Phoenix Lights is a book by Lynne D. Kitei (Amazon US or UK).
- I don’t know what my little sister is up to in Tasmania, but bright orange lights were seen in the skies of Hobart on Saturday night.
- Bill’s uncle knows the truth about Roswell, and it backs up Nick Redfern’s claims, found in his book Body Snatchers In The Desert (Amazon US or UK).
- Gary McKinnon, the nerd who saw too much. I have evidence McKinnon is telling white lies, and I’ll post it in my blog soon. I feel sorry for the guy actually.
- One of Britain’s leading paranormal experts is offering classes on how to contact your guardian angel. Personally, I leave a bowl of milk out on the back porch at night.
- Paul Solem says he’s the only white man to have been accepted by traditional Hopi chiefs, and he’s telling tales of flying saucers. You can read about Hopi prophecy here.
- Tom Cruise says he has lived before, and believes his current life is one of the least satisfying. Yes Tom, Days Of Thunder was pretty bad.
- Tales of explorers being eaten by cannibals or losing toes to frostbite never scared Michael Palin — they encouraged him.
- Another ex-Python, Terry Gilliam, has a new film out, The Brothers Grimm. Here’s what he says about it.

- Who was Thomas Malory, the man who created the legend of Lancelot? Maybe he was Tom Cruise in a past life.
- Can a punk rocker named Rat Scabies find the Holy Grail? Rat Scabies and the Holy Grail, by Christopher Dawes (Amazon US or UK). Looks like Tool’s Maynard James Keenan has serious competition, Greg.
- With a name like Bodelwyddan Castle, it’s got to be haunted.
- Victorian scientists attempted to squash Daniel Home, but the quest to contact the spirit world moves on. The First Psychic, by Peter Lamont, is an excellent book about Daniel Home (Amazon US or UK).
