Using various meters during an paranormal investigation has become common place nowadays. But these different devices can sometimes cause confusion on which meter to use and when.

In the episode of Paranormal 101 Tony talks about three different types of meters we use during our paranormal investigations. He discusses the various pros and cons of each meter and gives tips on how to use the meters.  He also talks about some of the things than can cause certain meters to give off a false positive.

Which meter is the most accurate? When and what meter should you use?

So, sit back and enjoy this episode of Paranormal 101.


Gadgets To Help Boost Your Ghost-Hunting Efforts

Nearly 75% of people believe in the supernatural to some extent with more than 18% admitting to having at least one ghostly encounter, according to a study conducted by Chapman University. Thanks to TV shows such as Paranormal Lockdown and Phantasmic Ghost Hunters that showcase extreme yet realistic paranormal encounters, an increasing number of Americans are looking to delve into the world of ghost-hunting – a pastime becoming substantially easier thanks to a range of easy-to-obtain gadgets. While ghost hunting technologies such as the following won't guarantee you a ghostly encounter, it will definitely increase your chances of coming face to face with an ethereal entity.


During the recent Pine Mountain Paracon the even finished off with a investigation of the historic Bell Theater located in downtown Pineville. This event was open to the general public and we had a good number of people show up and take part in the investigation. Much of the investigation was broadcast live over facebook.

The video that follows is that live broadcast along with a couple of interviews with some of the folks that took part. The investigation was very successful and the interaction was nothing short of amazing.

As we continue to roll out some of these incredible EVPs from our investigation team, I think it is important to let everyone know that none of these are faked. These sounds were often times captured on multiple recording devices. No voice sounds have been added in at all. After an investigation, it takes many hours to sift through all the different recordings.
Once a potential EVP is discovered, the first thing we normally do is simply boost the audio. After that, if we feel it is an actual voice, we do a variety of things to clear up the sound. Reducing noise levels can sometimes be very effective.

In the video below, Tony, the lead investigator, ask a simple question and gets a pretty clear reply.

I'm currently writing another book that deals with my time living in a house with paranormal activity. In doing some research about ghost activity, I ran across an interesting report. I was already aware of such reports of phantom telephone rings that many think come from a recently passed loved one.

It is not a far stretch to think that a spirit could make a telephone ring. After all, there is plenty of cases where spirits have caused K2 meters to light up, or unknown voices are captured on a recorder,  or some other device seems to be manipulated by an unseen entity.

There are even some cases of people hearing their passed love one speak on the line after a phantom phone call.

In this episode of Ninja of the Woods, host Big Jim Blanton tells what he has been doing the last few days and then focuses on ghost hunting tools.

There are many tools that can be used during an investigation. Some ghost hunting tools can be costly, while others are reasonably affordable.

Some tools are considered old school and other are not. In this episode Big Jim give you his take on some tools and what he likes to use during an investigation.

Here is the episode

Recently, Myself and Tony Felosi from Harlan County Paranormal conducted a investigation in Harlan County,  Kentucky.

It was on a special day and in a special place. It was the 75 anniversary of a unusual death at the courthouse. This entity has been pretty activity for Tony over the last several years. So, we went in hoping to catch some stuff, we were not disappointed.

Here is a short video of some of the investigation.


This use to be a page on our site and I removed it. But I thought it would be a good idea to preserve the actual content, and add some, from the page. I know some of this information, especially the tools, is probably out dated but there is still some good information. It is important for ghost hunters to be prepare when going out to investigate and this post will provide some useful information. There may even be some seasoned investigators who will find some of these tips useful. There are two lists, one for ghost hunting tools and one is ghost hunting tips.

 Lets get to the list.

I recently reviewed the paranormal documentary film Pursuit of the Paranormal, my review can be found Here, but I also had a chance to interview the director and creator of the film, Chris Bores.
Here is our 16th interview in the ongoing series, I hope you enjoy it.


 - Start Interview -  

TM:  How long have you been researching/studying the paranormal?

CB: I have been investigating the paranormal since 2006 when all the ghost hunting show began exploding onto our TV sets. It took me a few years to really figure out the path I wanted to take in this field but in 2012, I was really able to able to figure out a skill set that helped me get some pretty amazing conversations going with spirits

TM: What got you interested in ghosts, Was there a particular event that got you started?

CB: Like many, I got caught up in the ghost hunting craze when Ghost Hunters on Syfy became popular. I didn’t realize it was an actual pastime with a specific methodology until then.

TM: During your research/studying of the paranormal, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a spirit?

CB: Oh yes. I have been attacked on one occasion and had to leave the room and tell the spirit enough, I am leaving. Thankfully it backed down after I said that. On other occasions I’ve had to bless an area from a negative being.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always doubting the paranormal field, and make claims of evidence being faked, How do you deal with it?

CB: I’ve encountered naysayers countless times over the past couple of years. Ghost Hunting is very polarizing. Until you have that experience, you are not going to believe in it.

TM: What do you feel is your best evidence of the paranormal?

CB: I’ve got my share of cool EVP’s just like everyone else. Anyone can do it so I wanted to steer away from really highlighting that part of my research. The main reason I wanted to come up with a communication skill set that breaks the mold in this field is because everyone can go out and capture EVP’s.

My favorite evidence is getting interactions that last for an hour or longer. Not many people can do the type of work that keeps spirits entertained long enough to pull actual information from them. But recently I was at a location talking to this spirit who many referred to as Caroline. Once I got her comfortable enough with my presence, I asked her if that was her name and she said it wasn’t. This is done through a K2 device I use. Not sure what her name really is though. Sadly I didn’t have a device that worked well enough that night to tell me that. 

TM: Do you have a favorite place you would like to investigate?

CB: I’d love to hit up places like the Winchester Mansion or Stanley Hotel. I’d love to see if I could get a conversation started with the spirits that lurk there.

TM: Do you have a place you would like to investigate but haven't got to, yet?

CB: Same as above. Ghost Hunting doesn’t pay a dime so it’s a challenge to travel around to all these places that harbor all the great activity hunters are looking for. Easter State Penn is another place that’s high on my list.

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying the paranormal?

CB: I am constantly working on videos and working with clients in the area to pay the bills. I would probably be doing more of that.


TM: Thanks for doing the interview, keep us posted on your work.

 Here is some pictures of some investigation work.

Paranormal investigator
SCP's Kevin Vaughn

Interview with Paranormal Researcher Kevin Vaughn
(AKA - Big K)

I thought it would be good to expand our interview series and include ghost hunters and those that research the spirit world. So, I hit up my longtime facebook buddy Kevin Vaughn and he agreed to the interview. Kevin is the Co-founder and Lead Investigator of Scioto County Paranormal. SCP investigates paranormal activity around Scioto County, OH and the Tri-state area. They run SCP as a non profit/volunteer organization. Their investigations are free and done professionally and discretely.

- Start Interview -


TM:  How long have you been researching/studying the paranormal?

KV:  I started watching horror movies at the ripe old age of 5, watching chiller theater on TV. As I got older I started watching shows like in search of, unexplained mysteries. sightings. But I would say doing research, maybe I was 10, reading the books about UFOs, ghost, and Bigfoot. Just whatever I could find, I've been interested ever since. So, that was about 30 years ago.

TM: What got you interested in ghost, Was there a particular event that got you started?

KV: While growing up I heard all the local ghost stories and legends, I wanted to know more and see what I could find out for myself.
I lived in a house were a man was killed and his house keeper was tied up. He was shot one morning through his front door and died. At certain times of the year you could hear gun shots, his house keeper screaming, the loud thud of something hitting the floor and on occasion you could see a black shadow cross the upstairs grate in the floor to the attic door. We later learned he kept his money hid in the attic.

TM: During your research/studying of the paranormal, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a spirit?

KV: Not anything aggressive yet, there was my hair stroked and another team mate felt someone grab his leg walking down some stairs at a clients house.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always doubting the paranormal field, and make claims of evidence being faked, How do you deal with it?

KV: I try not to push my beliefs on other people. If they wanna believe fine but I'm not gonna force them. Most people don't believe until something happens to them.

TM: What do you feel is your best evidence of the paranormal?

KV: We haven't really caught anything I would consider to be good evidence, a few personal experiences but nothing to back up the accounts. (9 out of 10 times you catch nothing, its not like on TV were they catch something every time they go some place. That just doesn't happen.)

TM: Do you have a favorite place you like to investigate?

KV:  I have none that really stand out. I'd like to investigate any and every where we can. You never know, just because one place has nothing, across the street might be loaded with activity. So none I'm not particular, just any and every where.

TM: Do you have a place you would like to investigate but haven't got to, yet?

KV: Bobby Mackey's in Wilder Ky,  heard its got a lot of activity, has a warning sign telling customers its haunted. A lot of places really, but most are very expensive, and theres no such thing as a money back guarantee you'll catch something. Ghost don't respond every time you want them too, if they do maybe its faked.

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying the paranormal?

KV: Its hard to say, but nothing as exciting or interesting as the paranormal I'm sure. Maybe try writing a book on local legends and stories.

Thanks for the interview Big K! Good Luck on finding ghost.

Thanks

DVD Review

Pursuit of the Paranormal
Rated: Not Rated ,Running Time: 90 minutes
Directed by Chris Bores


Some of you may recognize the name of the director of  Pursuit of the Paranormal, Chis Bores, from his very popular youtube channel - Irategamer, where he rates and does various skits mostly revolving around video games. But Chris also has a passion for paranormal investigations and it will become more evident once you watch Pursuit of the Paranormal.

So last night I finally got some free time to watch Pursuit of the Paranormal, not really knowing what to expect, I can say I was surprised with the quality of the film. As an independent film creator myself, I know how hard it is to produce a high production film and the cost associated with high quality cameras. Sometimes you just have to work with what you have and do the best you can and in this case the quality of the film is very good.

As the show is coming on we learn that it is hosted by Chris Bores and Alan Cicco. They are investigating a very familiar place, the St. Augustine Lighthouse, which is known for paranormal activity. I instantly remembered the Lighthouse from a past episode of Ghost Hunters, the previous evidence collected by Ghost Hunters was tied in very well during the first of Pursuit of the Paranormal .

So at this point my interest in the film is peeked and I'm ready for the investigation to start.

Pursuit of the Paranormal, has a really good Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures type of feel to it. A good bit of back ground is given about the lighthouse before the investigation start. Of course, with the Lighthouse being a historical hotspot for paranormal activity, the investigators are not disappointed. There is a lot of activity, but I'm assuming some of the odd banging could have been due to the temperature changes of a sunny day to a cooler night, resulting in popping and cracking of the structure. But, this is not all that happens, the team are also using various cameras and K2 meters. The K2 meters received a lot of the activity and this is where the most interesting part of the film takes place.

What was really interesting was that during the numerous K2 sessions it seemed the spirits would not or could not answer certain questions about the afterlife. Is there a particular reason for this?  The team probes deeper and tries to find the answers. I know some of the questions the investigators ask are the ones I would have ask.

While this film may not be for everyone, it does have high production values and the host/investigators do a good job. There is various evidence presented and it was entertaining. If you are a fan of or like shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, then you should find Pursuit of the Paranormal to your liking.

The only real draw backs for me were the lack of debunking attempts and lack of more gadgets, I would have liked to see more equipment used in attempts to contact the spirits. But, I can somewhat see the lack of more gadgets, as I know some of that stuff is expensive.

While there may be nothing earth shattering in the film, the line of questioning during the K2 sessions makes the film a very worthwhile watch in my opinion. This is a very good effort in the crowded market place of paranormal research. 

To purchase the film just go to Pursuit of the Paranormal.com
 

 Rating: 3 out of 5

Thanks
