About WATT

'ello, 'ello, 'ELLO!, What's All This, Then?What’s All This, Then?  is a blog written by Iggy Makarevich, a very little-known Fortean savant. The title is from a wonderful Monty Python sketch that I can’t seem to locate. Very influential was Monty.

It is Forteanid and parapolitical, along with, (maybe, maybe not, probably not), some life sprinkled about.

Oh, yes, sporadic music posts that may be strange to some and loved by others.

I am told that yoga will fix all my myriad and oft overwhelming woes toot suite, but I simply can not relax enough to do it. The mind races and roils continuously. Working on it.

I am very much into all varieties of the unexplained and conspiracies and you will likely find posts on all of them at some point in time. Check the archives and subscribe for future updates as needed.

I have been involved at some very low-key level or another in this ‘field’ for a very long time. Since I was 10, actually, so it is getting uncomfortably close to 5 decades now. An old hippy you have here. Too old. Way too old.

NASA/JPL 2N289976994EFFB0EOP0675L0M1 Sol 1843I am sorry to say that I used to fall into the trap that most do quite regularly. If you go back far enough in the archives you will find posts that I wish I had never published, like the Dulce “announcement,” the spikey Mexican balloon and yes there are other horrific unmentionables. Sigh.

A sharp intake of breath was noted...But – no more! Dammit, no more. I am sick of the Bravo Sierra that infests and degrades this journey… the constant parade of frauds and those that believe – without question – every single word that they spew. I am very careful now. Very. You will find no blind faith woo woo sites in the sidebar. (Unless they’re hilariously entertaining! Warned ya! (Only a few)) And while YouTube is nice for docos and stuff, it is one of the vilest known enemies of the unexplained.

A mishap could possibly happen again. But I hope not.

I like Mars and I like the critter up above on the right there. I cannot shake the feeling that that is indeed a critter and not a rock. Something about it. Seen it other times, too, as have my Italian pals at Lunexit. See also the movie of what surely seems to be one having lunch, down on the sidebar. Can’t miss it.

This is what it says on my twitter profile…

Reclusive, opinionated, poor and lonely web designer, writer, artist, voice actor, video editor, anomalist, Fortean savant. Full time Caregiver of an 90yo lady.

hunting fluke-armed rocks.

Mrs. MooreShe is now 90 years old, the lady I take care of. Pretty cool. She is my aunt, the last of her family and the widow of the late Clayton Moore, who was a most excellent man, I must say.

The tragedy of dementia has erased those 90 years from her being I’m afraid. Nearly completely.

Makes me cry.

Sometimes, when I think about it just sitting there, I just do.


I haven’t been lucky enough to get sufficient work in quite a long time. I work on new designs for High Strangeness Art, which is my t-shirt and goodies store, but sometimes, make that most of the time, it seems pointless since sales are so very rare. Really. I just don’t know what to do. But still… :(

My current location is an odd place, not Forteanically, just socially, as it’s more than a bit removed from your average American town… here’s a description I lifted off of the Greenwich Roundup blog, who, in a moment of high strangeness a while ago now, picked up the High Strangeness feed.

Cos Cob
As the Old Town farmers struggled with the area’s rocky soil, the tiny hamlet to the west prospered as a seaport. Cas Cob, Originally known as Mianus, was named after the Siwanoy Chief, Myanos. It was an Englishman named John Cae, an early settler, who built a seawall at the mouth of the Mianus River, referred to as a “cob.” He left in 1659, but the name Cos Cob (without the “e”) remained.

Cos Cob flourished as a seaport during the 1700s and 1800s. At the turn of the nineteenth century, it evolved into an intellectual and artist colony playing host to the likes of Eugene O’Neill, Willa Cather and Anya Seton, whose father Ernest Thompson Seton, was a founder of the Boy Scouts of America. The historic Bush-Holley House, presently the home of the Greenwich Historical Society, became famous as the residence and studio of the renowned Cos Cob School of American impressionists.

Today, Cos Cob has its own shopping center. The lovely Mianus River flows through its residential areas and offers extensive marinas on the upper Mianus Harbor.

At some point I will depart this enclave of the ultra-wealthy, replete with a thriving Bugatti dealership selling million+ dollar cars and where a good pizza will run you 36 bucks (before the tip, Coke extra)… bound for the City of Angels, probably, where someone very special lives, thus will it be my beginning… or my end… maybe elsewhere thereafter, if there is a thereafter… I don’t know, only time will tell.

I wish upon you…

    A friend pointed me here, so you’re in Fairfield County? So are we…

      Hey… yeah, in Cos Cob, right near the edge… actually I’ve been reading your stuff for a long time… sometimes I’ll pass stuff along, previously just at High Strangeness or maybe MySpace. This is my new nest.

    Hello, hope this comment finds you well. I just ran across this site and I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed it quite a bit and will be stopping back often to see what’s new. I wondered if you might be willing to add me to your list of Friends, Forteans & Countrymen. I would, in-turn add your site to my blogroll as well. You can check out Circa71 @ http://www.circa71.wordpress.com. While it doesn’t touch on as much UFO information I tend to post towards past civilizations, obscure happenstances, and other similarly Fortean subjects.

    Wondering if you have any information on the following people:


    • iggymak says:

      Jim Marrs is the author of several well-received Fortean-themed books and has his own forum at Above Top Secret called The View From Marrs.

      Alex Jones is a well known commentator and researcher into the New World Order and related subjects. He has produced several videos on the subject. He has websites with much interesting information in them, Prisonplanet.com and InfoWars.com chief among them.

      I am not familiar with a Mike Adams, sorry…

      Thanks for your question, David.

    I hope this finds you well. I represent Healthline Networks, and we were wondering if you could include Healthline’s Multiple Sclerosis Center (http://www.healthline.com/health/multiple-sclerosis) as a resource on your page: https://whatsallthisthen.wordpress.com/

    Healthline provides a very comprehensive overview of Multiple Sclerosis as a critical starting point for individuals and/or their loved ones.

    Why you should include Healthline as a resource:

    -An educational tutorial on understanding, diagnosing, and treatment for MS
    -Breaking news (ex. http://www.healthline.com/health-news/ms-new-3D-scanning-technique-helps-diagnose-ms-fast-100913) and in-depth, doctor-reviewed content

    For more information about our rigorous editorial process, to view our board of directors and more visit the Healthline about page: http://www.healthline.com/health/about-healthline.

    Please let me know if you are open to adding Healthline’s MS center as a resource. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Warm Regards,

      Surely :)

      This horror destroyed my mom so I know what it does. Peeked at your site… looks quite nice and full.

      I’ll put you in the Good Fight list as this page doesn’t get much action.

      Much peace.
