3 Missing 411 interviews in one, David Paulides at his best!

Hopefully this will work. Video-wise I mean. That URL tho.

Didn’t! – fixed it. Silly app.

Mr Paulides is currently one of my favorite Forteans since he does not mix any woo into the story, which, really, is the way it should be.

This is the Whitley Strieber Dreamland show, well three in a row hence the title. I find this topic fascinating and I am always riveted no matter what length it is.
I have not been able to acquire the books yet but it is desired mucho.
You will not be disappointed in this one and Whitley gives some great questions.

Something profoundly strange is happening and it is proving to be frightening on many levels.

Enjoy and Peace.

Enjoy, yes, indeed do that thing!

I haven’t posted a tune in a while, so we’re due, but this thread didn’t start out in the usual way. You all know that I’m always lurking on ATS for the latest in high strangeness and conspiracy; I saw a thread entitled North Carolina’s strange, strange pond. by member ColeYounger, which as you might imagine is right up my alley, so of course I had to click it.

In it was the following very cool story and the reference to this song, along with this YouTube music video. Two birds, one stone for WATT, eh? Ha!

On the discussion board, there was an old post by a guy who said he grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Apparently, the guy had been checking out the online discussions about strange power spots, vortexes and ‘Earth anamolies.’ [sic]

He said that one day in 1969, he and three friends were riding dirt-bike motorcycles in a large forested area near Winston-Salem. He described it as thick forest with bike trails worn through the woods. Deep in the middle of the forest was a large clearing. They had ridden their bikes there many times before, but on this day, when they reached the clearing, they were shocked to see a huge, perfectly round depression in the ground that was probably 80 – 100 feet in diameter . He said it was as if a giant iron ball had been pressed into the ground, buried halfway, and then lifted out. The dirt in the indentation was ‘smooth as glass’. There was not a bump or a ripple anywhere. Of course they thought that it had somehow been man-made…dug out with bulldozers or something. But there was no machinery anywhere. There was no way to get any machinery there! There were no roads, just bike trails. They got really spooked and got the hell out of there. From what the guy said, all four of them were pretty spooked.

They went back to town and told some friends. A couple other guys went there shortly thereafter and they saw it too. The weird depression was gone within a few days, as if it was never there.
Now this is weird! ….supposedly someone took some photos, but never gave them to any news people, reporters, etc. The story became quite a local legend. I’m surprised it’s not really famous. Maybe because the “mystery circle” was there and gone so quickly?

A couple years later, Fleetwood Mac released their song “Hypnotized”. Some of the lyrics definitely sound like the Winston-Salem circle, although the term “pond” is used.

Cole then wonders just exactly how Bob Welch, Fleetwood Mac’s guitarist and songwriter at the time, came up with the lyrics in question…

Well… In FleetwoodMac.net’s The Penguin Q&A Sessions section, ATS researcher Pauligirl found this quote regarding this very happening from the guy who wrote the song, Bob Welch, August 4 – 17, 2003:

Hey Bob! In Hypnotized you talk about a strange pond in North Carolina. What’s the story behind it, and where’s it supposed to be? A curious North Carolinian… (Louie Golden, Charlotte, NC, USA)

A guy that I used to work with from Winston-Salem told me the story of he and some friends riding dirt bikes 20 miles or so out in the woods when they came upon a strange “crater” in the ground with smooth sides like melted glass. It was a “pond” in the sense that there was some rainwater in it I guess.There were no access roads or caterpillar tracks so it wasn’t a construction site. I think the location must have been near Winston-Salem. They all immediately got the feeling they should get out of there. Maybe it was a meteor impact ? I just liked the imagery for the song.

So, Bob actually met and talked with one of the guys who experienced this first-hand. Seriously, how cool is that? What are the odds? Spock?

Needless to say that this is one heck of a mystery. The ‘smooth as glass’ nature of the depression is particularly fascinating. As is the fact that it ‘repaired itself,’ so to speak, after just a few days. Weird! Groundwater rising and falling within a water cave has been suggested, which I suppose is reasonably plausible, but what about the glassy smooth effect? Not a common sinkhole feature that I know of.

And in this reply, posted after I started writing, this feature, or a remnant of it, may have been located! Only those who were there could verify that, of course, but it is certainly intriguing. Maybe they’ll show up and clarify things! It’s happened before. But them Gol darn odds are agin’ us. It would be fabulous if the photos mentioned were to turn up!

I just love how utterly strange our world can be. I really do.

And,  it turns out, much to my delight, that Bob Welch is a big fan of various Fortean subjects, most notably UFOs. I like that and wonder if this incident helped trigger off his interest in the unexplained. If you read the interview with him at the Fleetwood Mac site you will see several questions relating to UFOs and the like. Such as this one…

Hi Bob and thank you for doing another Q&A for your devoted fans ! My questions are….

Since you are into the paranormal like me, who are your favourite authors on the subject ? (i.e. John A. Keel, Stanton Friedman, and Jenny Randles) (Arizona Ranger, Cranford, NJ, USA)

Jacques Vallee, Ingo Swann, Gary Schwartz (the Afterlife Experiments), David R. Hawkins MD (The Eye Of The I), Stephen Greer(Disclosure Project). The ones you mentioned (Freidman etc.) are also good. There are many more…John G White “The Unobstructed Universe” comes to mind. I’m planning to put a list of all the authors I like on my website.

Shame about Greer being in there, really… hopefully Bob has seen the light on that matter. It’s one I fell for initially, too, back in the day, so I can relate and I’m sure all’s well.

May strangeness befall you.

Peace.

I like this phenomena! Weird noises from the sky! I want to experience it very badly. Judging from the recent activity level, I may not have long to wait.

Mystery booms have always fascinated me… the Seneca Guns, my home state’s Moodus noises, all very much like powerful yet distant, unseen detonations of an aerial nature. All, to this day, are continuing unabated… with nary a good explanation in sight.

These new, improved noises are different, though. Very different. They’re not at all like some unseen offshore Admiral is going bonkers with his cannons… no, no, these are sustained loud groanings and creakings and metallic thrashings. They can (and usually do) go for over an hour. They are quite seriously loud. They appear to emanate from the sky, but nothing is ever visible. Could they then be actually from underground? Maybe so. But everyone is adamant in saying it comes from above.

Awaits an explanation, this new noise does, but it would appear that mainstream media and scientists, with rare exceptions, are issuing not a peep about this. Despite the fact that it’s global and frequently scaring the wits out of quite a lot of people. You’ll find mention of it only on conspiracy-type sites and the ubiquitous YouTube… Hmmm. A diligent individual is compiling a map. Updated mapUpdated USA map. Updated Global map. Here is a nice long thread on this subject.

If you have heard this, please comment.

I’ve been reading USO reports as a distraction from the horrors of life… and somewhere in the midst of it I got off track… and became aware of this documentary on the ongoing Hessdalen Project, which I think is really very nicely done so I’m posting it here for you all to enjoy.

Hessdalen’s held a fascination for me right from the start, not only because of the phenomena itself, but also because it’s the only, as far as I know, anomalous event being studied full-time by actual scientists, from two countries, with the full backing of a college and the Norwegian military. They even have a Summer Camp where college kids go and help out for a week. Talk about providing a little inspiration to pursue science! What could be better?

This is how anomalies should be dealt with. I tire of all the cultish “prophets” and all the other charlatans running amok these days… and their wide-eyed credulous true believers as well… they just ruin it all and place tremendous delays on the arrival of real knowledge.

Off topic note: You may have noted in the fourth video Bjørn Gitle Hauge’s tale of the blue spiral trail that was generated by an instance of the Hessdalen phenomenon. Just sayin.’

Bjørn Gitle Hauge, M.Sc.E.E. is an Assistant Professor with Project EMBLA at Østfold College, Department of Engineering and Natural Sciences.

Well… not really… but…

I think this is pretty darn sporty. I mean you have to admit that the ability of inanimate objects to defy gravity is pretty cool. And I want one, dammit. It was only $2.99, too. I, like all of you, have owned way more than my share of cheap Chinese crap since we’ve so little choice of late, but none of those forlorn and inadequate imitations of whatever they were supposed to be could ever do what this piece does.

Note, though, that its powers are limited! Apparently it doesn’t work but in a few select places… which I find most interesting… and which will surely provide clues as to what’s really going on here. It’ll be fun to watch the speculation fly. Watch the video on the linked page… you’ll see it “in action” and find that the previous tenants had similar experiences. The site has a nice photo gallery as well… the last shot’s swell.

There’s also a property exhibited by our sweeper that paranormalists will find interesting and familiar. Well… I don’t know what to think. Very cool use of energy, that’s for sure, but the extreme localization is intriguing. Probably something to do with earth energies, ley lines and various similarly-tinged items of interest.

If you figure it out, do let us know.

PRATTVILLE — Buzz about a broom standing upright and unsupported at a downtown Prattville business is sweeping the town.

Several hundred people have stopped by Vintage Blu, a yet-to-be-opened consignment shop, since the phenomenon was discovered Thursday. Dozens of theories to explain what’s going on have been thrown out. There must be glue on the bristles of the broom, or there are magnets in the floor working in concert with the buildings electrical system, or maybe … just maybe … it’s something from beyond at work.

“I think it’s more strange than spooky,” said Christy Burdett, the shop’s owner, who has been working for several weeks to get the business open. “But it’s been fun.”

No, there isn’t any glue, and there are no magnets in the floor. As to something otherworldly going on, people will have to use their own judgment.

It all started out innocently enough. The broom was leaning against a set of mobile shelves when Della Benton, Burdett’s sister, moved the shelves Thursday afternoon. When Benton looked back, she was surprised to see the broom standing on the floor. Continue reading at Standing broom has folks here strawstruck
