Tricksters? Yes, I believe so. (Pt. 2)
Tricksters? Yes, I believe so. (Pt. 2) avatar

I will be honest, I had a hundred ideas about what it could be. I didn’t freak out, not really how I respond to things but I did have my mind start racing. I immediately went to see if I could find ANYTHING that would make sense. Nothing. This is inside, in a room, not outside where it could have been a crazed squirrel.

I felt a bit of what I call ‘my feeling’ that tends to fire when something odd is happening. It isn’t an all over feeling, if you have watched any of our @PARANOLA videos you have probably heard me mention it. I feel a tingling down one arm just as I opened the door and walked into the room. To be honest I had a feeling of energy all through my body, but with this specific arm thing in addition.shot glass

I mentioned it to someone else in the house, no one had been in there. I sat back down in my chair to continue working on what I was writing. Within about an hour I heard a bit of a scared yell and glass breaking, nearly simultaneously. A shot glass (which I put my vitamins in) was on my night stand and I was told it moved from one side of a table and flew off shattering on impact.

At this point I am actively thinking, this seems peculiar. I trusted the person who had told me about the shot glass as if I would have seen it myself. However, always trying to be skeptical I didn’t really. I tend to not even trust my own eyes when it comes to such things.

It wasn’t long until the final two shoes dropped. Two rooms, directly next to each other had odd events and then they both did, loudly again.

(last on this, part 3 will be posted shortly.)

I am quite sure that there are spirits, even having a very skeptical and scientific approach to paranormal investigation. Yes, it seems a bit of an oxymoron but I believe the more time you spend investigating the paranormal the more certain things become self evident.Clown Doll

Today I had one of those days. One where my negativity and the stress I have been under might have contributed to there being an opening for something unwanted to enter. No, this isn’t just about having the house open due to my AC being on the blink and allowing a mosquito or two inside. I honestly have seen how negative energy can be like a magnet to more negativity, people, and possibly other things.

The concept of ‘tricksters’ are fun fodder for short stories and even tv shows. However looking into such things you find there are variations on the intent (conscious or intrinsic) that they have. What I bumped into today, I believe was one of the lesser ones. Not malevolent but with enough energy to manipulate objects, possibly emotions, and even perception.

It began with a simple enough thing, I was not paying much attention to what I was doing as I was checking email. I realized I had popped up an application that allowed me to view my security cameras. It was a full screen HD one that came on by default. I looked at it, thought ‘why did I open this?’ and then saw what appeared to be something resembling a clown doll pop out from underneath something, shake back and forth violently about 3 times and then disappear back under what it had emerged from.

… to be continued.

What do YOU want?
What do YOU want? avatar

So we have this discussion and have a good general consensus. The question is do you consider yourself an investigator, an enthusiast, or someone who innocently stands by?

When watching documentation from investigations, do you want to be told what the investigators generally agree they see or hear? In other words, do you want a blurb under a supposed EVP or spirit voice recording telling you what the investigators believe they are hearing? Do you understand the concept of matrixing? Should possible images that contain some not readily explainable video be explained as to what a consensus of the investigators on the scene think they see, or even outlined for you to see what the investigators believe they are seeing?

Or do you look at any of this a pandering?

We would like your comments.

The Ship’s Wheel Investigation: Background
The Ship’s Wheel Investigation: Background avatar

So we are working our way through the audio and video shot at the one time Fat City staple called “The Ship’s Wheel.”

This was a very unique experience for us and done differently than we normally do things. This has to do with the activity we experienced, the client participation, and that there were just two of our group at the shoot. @PARANOLAJoe and @PARANOLASarah were the only team members available after having had a different investigation the night before. So it was those two @PARANOLA Krewe members and three of the key people from the Ship’s Wheel.
REM Pod
The former burlesque/strip bar had been a family run business for decades and the last night before the new owners took the keys was the night we investigated. There had been reports of many strange occurrences, ranging from dark figures, to knocking noises, glasses at the bar moving or falling, to a presence that they believe was linked to a local man who was down on his luck that the Ship’s Wheel had taken in as family that had died a few years ago.

What we ended up with was a very strong reaction from a  that appeared to be directly answering questions when asked by one of the Wheel’s family. We ended up with evidence that seems to imply that even in death the link between a father and daughter continues on.

The whole webisode will be posted soon and you will be able to see exactly what we mean. For now you can see the two “Ship’s Wheel” teases that we have posted on our Vimeo Channel.

The specific Ship’s Wheel teases are located here:

The “Ship’s Wheel”
The “Ship’s Wheel” avatar

In the good ole days (not too far gone) the ‘mob’ had a piece of the suburb of New Orleans called Metairie, Louisiana. This chunk of real estate was called “Fat City” and it was loaded with bars, strip clubs, burlesque shows, and a variety of the things most normal people find to be a necessity in society.

At some point, after Hurricane Katrina, certain interests decided that not only New Orleans but even the couple of blocks known as Fat City needed to become as safe and ‘family-friendly’ as Walt’s World/Land. If you have a soul, you know that the world needs and desires something more adult than a teen in a mouse costume (although that could be a dark thing in and of itself.)

In an effort to eliminate the adult activities that took place in Fat City a certain person in Parish government began a one woman war against this very popular area. Mob influence was mostly gone from there, and it was a place even respected people would go for a good time without needing to go into #NOLA. In fact those people included this official’s father (a senior law enforcement officer) who was a frequent visitor to many of the great restaurants and other places, which might very well be why this official pushed to stamp this place out of existence. An ordnance was passed barring ‘live entertainment’ after an unreasonable time… since the area was mainly surrounded by commercial entities.

The last of the burlesque clubs, in fact, any adult-related places was “The Ship’s Wheel.”

Two nights before it closed we were seemingly able to ask the proprietor his feelings about it, even though he had passed away years earlier.

@paranolasarah and @paranolajoe were both there along with some of those from the “Ship’s Wheel” to experience what can only be described as the most unusual and striking REM-Pod activity we have known to occur. We have it documented and it is on deck to enter our site soon at http://tv.paranola.com
