Are they a bad cover band, or just the Black Eyed Kids?
We are back this week with a topic I've wanted to cover for quite sometime; the strange phenomena of the Black Eyed Kids. Back in 1996 a journalist, Brian Bethel, had an encounter that left him with an unsavory taste in his mouth. He couldn't explain what happen, only that it had, but what he could recall was shocking. Bethel's account featured a new type of haunting with a brand new, never before seen monster - black eyed kids. He described these kids as between the ages of 6 and 16 with fairly normal features, except that their clothes were dated by a few decades... oh and their eyes were solid black. Yeah, I know, terrifying, right? Well after Bethel's account, other's began either having similar encounters with these things, or recalled events that had happened to them in their younger years. All of these stories, which are now plentiful all over reddit, have one thing in common - the kids always want to come into your space, be it a house or car, or... whatever. Generally, these kids also seem out of touch with modern society, such as asking to come into a home to use a landline when pretty much everybody (including bloody toddlers), have their own cellphone. They also create a sense of unease within the person/people they're interacting with.' Most chilling of all? Well, there are absolutely no accounts of what happens in somebody lets one of these Black Eyed Kids into their house... Maybe nobody's lived to tell the tale.

Let‘s Escape to the Astral Planes
I'm back! I know, it's been a while. This episode has been kicking my arse. When I was contacted about my thoughts on the astral planes, I became curious and jumped right in. However, I was a little overwhelmed by how much research there's been on the topic, and so I did my best to take the best bits from a ton of different sources and condense it into a 20 minute episode. So, that was fun. But what I did learn as that the there are a lot of these planes, and while I didn't go into detail on any of them, we get a pretty firm understanding of just what these places are. But what I found more interesting was how people travel there. The experiences, called astral projections, or out of body experiences can happen to anybody at any time, though there are some triggers for the involuntary OBE's. On the flipside, there are some who train themselves to project themselves to these dimensions. It's all very interesting. One of the biggest studies I could find on OBE's came from Frontiers in human neuroscience. I will admit that I didn't read the whole thing. For as interesting as it is, it wouldn't make for good podcasting content, but I encourage you to check out the article HERE.

The Beast of Jersey was a Musty man
Going through some past episodes, I realized that we've covered a lot of beasts. To be fair, the term beast can be attributed to any number of terrifying things, so I don't feel too bad. Nevertheless, this character is a real piece of work. Edward Paisnel has hints of Albert Fish in the sense that he was a disturbed man who preyed on the young, and they both had a crime spree that lasted much longer than it should have. But we've already covered Fish, so onto the Beast! During the late 1950's through to the early 70's. Paisnel went from attacking women on the street, and abusing them in a field, to breaking into homes and abducting kids from their bedrooms... and abusing them in fields. The Island of Jersey is a tiny place, and back in the 50's and 60's it was even smaller in terms of population, and the fact that this guy got away with what he did for so long is nothing short of incredibly disturbing. So you're sitting there thinking, "yeah, this guy's terrible for what he did to people and kids, but why is he is so terrifying?" Well, he would wear a disguise, and not just any disguise, but one that consisted of a loose fitting mask and wig that resembled a woman - think Texas Chainsaw 3 - and a coat adorned with nails on the collar, sleeve, and front flap. He was right out of a nightmare, and I'll post the picture below. Thankfully he was eventually caught, the only way a serial criminal could be. What might that be? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Three Men Walk into a Lighthouse...
... And they all vanished. Hell of a punchline, eh? Well that's exactly what happened in December of 1900, three men were at their lighthouse post on the Flannan Isle, Thomas Marshall, James Ducat and Donald MacArthur, when one stormy night they all mysteriously vanished into thin air. There was never a trace of these men found again. Of course, you might think that they all got swept away in the storm, or some other tragic accident, and you might not be wrong. BUT that won't people from theorizing other, more supernatural explanations. A popular theory when anybody goes missing, is of course, aliens. Naturally, given the circumstances, and the scene that was left behind it does appear that they were abducted my something otherworldy, and the main reason for this theory: The clocks, every last one within the lighthouse, were frozen, dead, not working. The scene also looked like they were taken in the middle of a meal, as half eaten plates of food were left behind, as well the kitchen was a mess, and a chair tipped over. Aliens. Other than that, potentially a giant bird up and plucked them from the shores of the isle. Yes, a giant bird. However, this isn't as common, or believable as the alien theory. But whatever did happen on that isle is still a mystery, and the mystery grew even further when their logbook was discovered, and there were some strange passages written within. Spoiler, it involved a bit of crying and a lot of praying. It was almost as if they knew something was going to happen, or perhaps they knew they were being stalked or hunted. Regardless of what actually happened, the mystery remains, and will probably never be solved. Their bodies were never found, and more than a hundred years later, never will be... Unless the aliens drop them off and they hadn't aged a day. That would be something.

It‘s a Bird, It‘s a Plane, It‘s the Beast of Gevaudan!
So let's say you live in the 1700's, and let's also say that you live on a farm, or out in the country somewhere, what would be your biggest fear? Well, the city-folk would probably be afraid of muggings and murder, but you, your fears hit a little different. How about being confronted in the middle of the woods in the dead of night by a massive wolf-like beast. It's so ferocious, and it's nothing like you've ever seen. It snarls, snaps it's massive jaws, and before you can blink, your head is clean off. If that sounds specific, that's because it is, and that was a real fear many in the Gevaudan area of 1760's France had. There was a beast, something that didn't belong, lurking the countryside, and it did not discriminate. Men, women, and children all fell victim to whatever this beast was. In fact, it got so bad that even Louis XV became involved, and so did a reward for the slaying of the beast - 6,000 Livres, which was a boat-load of money back then. The beast was eventually believed to be slain, but shortly after the attacks started again. So just what as this creature? Well, there are many popular theories, ranging from exotic animals imported, and escaping (similar to the alien big cats of a previous episode), to a prehistoric survivor from well... prehistoric times, to that of a serial killer who used an armored dog to do his hunting and wounding, at the very least. I like that last theory. It seems the most interesting. But regardless of what this beast is, it still remains a mystery, so tell, me, what do you think it was?

Don‘t Mes(opotamian) with Nergal
We are back again this week, and we're going old school! Literally, we're looking at a God from one of the oldest schools around: Ancient Mesopotamia, and that god is none other than the god of war, and ruler of the underworld, Nergal! Nergal has a bit of an interesting story to him, from humble beginnings as a lowly god of war, to being recognized as the ruler of the underworld. But how, you might ask? Well, a lot of it has to do with interpretation, but mostly good old fashioned hard work and rage! I mean, who hasn't raged their way to the top (or bottom in this case), and Nergal basically set the world on fire to prove a point: my kind of guy. Regardless of what he did, and who he was, there's something about the ancient Mesopotamian gods that are really interesting to me. I like to think of them as the origin for most, if not all of the religious iconography we have today. There are so many parallels than can be drawn to modern demons, gods, and rituals, which isn't all that surprising really. I like to think of religion as modern day Hollywood, everything is a bit of a copy of something else just a bit older.

Baby, it‘s the Baba Yaga
Witches aren't a new thing to this podcast. I've covered the Salem witch trials, and some lesser known witches throughout history, but today we cover the mother of them all; the Baba Yaga. While she's not technically the mother of witches, she has links to various cultures the world over, albeit by different names. The Baba Yaga is of Slavic origins, and she's sort of an anti-hero or villain. She's not necessarily evil, but certainly wants to be left alone. But, she will mess your day up if you do bother her by doing things such as, well, eating you. On the other side of things, she always keeps her word. Generally when approached she will give the trespasser some laundry list of near impossible tasks to complete in exchange for something. If you manage to complete said tasks, she'll stick to her word and give you what you seek - but there might just be consequences to claiming your prize, like in the story of Vasilisa. In this Cinderella like tale, young Vasilisa gets stuck with an evil stepmom who punishes her and her own kids. Well, one day the family needed more light in their cabin, and so Vasilisa was tasked with finding some when she bumped into good ol' Baba Yaga. She completed the impossible tasks and was given a lantern, which exploded upon entering the cabin, killing her step family in a gruesome fire. While Vasilisa was technically freed from her terrible life, it came at a great cost. Like I said, there are stories all over the world of similar creatures to the Baba Yaga, and they generally go by the generic term of Hag. But if you want more more, you'll just have to listen to the episode!

Giddy Up, It‘s Suspect Time! | Texarkana Phantom Killer FINALE!
We've made it, we got through another series, and we end our look at the Texarkana Phantom Killer with looking at the suspects. And there were a few, but given when all this took place (1946), pinning anybody to the crimes was tough without a confession, even though they might have had one. The main guy we're looking at here is Youell Swinney, who when confronted by police, told them not to shoot, and that he didn't want the electric chair. This, naturally, confused the officers who in turn asked why any of those things would happen to a guy who stole cars, to which he replied, "You have me for more than that, don't you." Implying quite a bit there. Oh, also his wife confessed to him killing people. So, there's that. Of course there are a million reason why his wife might lie. He's a criminal, and maybe abusive, so if she got him locked up for life, she could start over. It didn't help that she recanted her confession later on. There was a ton of evidence against him, but most of it was classified as circumstantial. All in all, there were over 400 suspects interviewed for the crimes, yet, none were ever charged.

Howdy, Par'dner | Texarkana Phantom Killer Part 2
Continuing with our looking into the Phantom Killer that stalked the night of 1940's Texarkana, we look at those involved with attempting to catch this serial madman. From local law enforcement, to the state rangers, this case had it all when it came to the investigators involved. We have the first responders in local sheriffs, to the Lone Wolf, who stole the show, despite doing nothing. Let's explore that a little bit further, shall we. Going by the nickname, Lone Wolf, Texas Ranger Manuel Gonzuallas came into town with a reputation for being a gunslinging badass who once gunned down two convicts with his duel pearl handled revolvers. Turns out, his reputation preceded him, as he was also very handsome and charming. All the lady reporters swooned over him and would kill for just ten minutes alone with the guy, which in turned caused issues during the investigation. Issues including bringing a woman from a prominent magazine at the time to one of the crime scenes to "Re-enact" the murder. Most thought it was something else, and they're probably right. Despite all the media attention the Lone Wolf was getting, by the accounts of his peers, he did bugger all, stole other officers reports and presented them to the media as his own. Typical pretty boy behavior! Nevertheless, despite promising he would stay in town until the killer was caught, he left three months after the last murder without so much as even a lead suspect. The other officers seemed competent enough, with years of experience, many of whom were WWI and WWII vets. However, despite any evidence they collected was rendered almost useless given the technological limitations of the time. The investigation relied on eye-witness reports and piecing together the whereabouts of "missing" peoples during the times of the murders. It led to one suspect, but that's for next week's episode!

Yee-Haw, It's The Texarkana Phantom
So we've gone from the Seven Deadly Sins, to... True crime? Yup, that's what you get with this podcast. However, this true crime story involves a phantom, so it might just have a supernatural twist. The story goes that in 1946, over the course of several months a man committed some pretty heinous crimes. In a series of events that precedes the zodiac killer by a good twenty years, a man draped in a a pillowcase-esque mask began terrorizing the town of Texarkana, which falls both in Texas and Arkansas. He started with an assault, both physical and sexual in nature and quickly worked his way up to murder. By the end of his reign of terror, he had killed five people and attacked eight. The town was obviously terrified, and there were no immediate suspects, despite there being tons of rumors and rewards posted. Just like the Zodiac killer twenty years later, he stalked couples who were isolated in a lover's lane type area, and used a pistol to gun them down, mostly execution style as well. But that's where I'll leave it for this episode. This will be split into a series, so next time we'll look at the investigation and investigators involved in the case - and boy are there are lot. The FBI even became involved with the crimes at one point. The events in 1946 Texarkana spawned two films, one in the 70's and one based on the murders in the first film in 2014. Both are worth a watch in my little opinion, but that's for another podcast. As for the Phantom himself, I can't wait to share what we find on the next episode!

Wrath, Greed, and Pride, Oh My! | Seven Deadly Sins final
We've made it! You and me, us... We did it, we got through the seven deadly sins, and we did it together, which makes it more special. It's been a long and winding road, but here we are with the final three sins. Greed, Wrath, and Pride. Arguably, they are the three biggest ones, and they all intersect with one another in some way, shape, or form. Greed is pretty obvious, wanting more than you have, mostly for material desires. Why by a Lambo when your Toyota can do the trick. you greedy bastard! Of course, it's much deeper than that, but for such a frowned upon sin, there isn't too much written on it in the religious sense. There have been cultural and societal studies on greed and its impact, but they aren't really all that relevant to this episode. But it is believed greed can lead to wrath. Wrath! My old friend. Anybody who's listened to Cheer and Loathing knows I'm quick to wrath, and that goes for a lot of people. Have a neighbor who plays music too loud, and you've wished nothing but death on them? You've committed the sin of Wrath! How dare you. Perhaps you're a catholic who'd rather stone a homosexual than let them get married - yeah, ironically, wrath. That's a theme. Of course wrath is one of the two biggies due to the possibility of harm befalling somebody out of rage or anger, but it pales in comparison to our next sin. Pride! How dare you be proud of what you've done, you swine! At least, that's how the church looks at it. Pride is the first sin, the one Lucifer committed before his big ol' fall, and therefore it's deeply looked down upon. Of course, I've never met a not "proud Christian," so again, a little bit strange that it's a deadly sin, let alone the worst one. However, it's believed that too much pride eats away at your ability to convene with God and love him completely. After all, if you're prideful, then you love yourself, and you can't possibly have room for your lord and savoir. In case you couldn't tell, this was ripe with sarcasm. In my journey into the deadly sins, I discovered something that I knew was always there - the rules, the regulations, the... everything, associated with the church (at least on the surface level) is terribly hypocritical and nonsensical. It's difficult to keep your feelings separate from this stuff when you've been looking into for the past few months, and it's not my intention to offend, just speak the truth that I uncovered. Anyway, it's good to be back!

Where the F*ck have I been?
Hello there! Long time no see, I hope all is well with you. Sadly, for a long time, not all was well with me. As this episode will explain, I had a rough go of things the last month and a bit, and I was in no shape to live, let alone do this podcast. BUT, things are starting to get better over here, so here's hoping I can stick to a more consistent schedule from here on out. Thank you all for your support.

Seven Deadly Sins | Sloths Aren't Just Cute Animals
We continue our look into the seven deadly sins, and this week we wade the cute and adorable, tree loving sloths! Wait, no, it's couch loving people, the close relative of the sloth. Yes, this week we discuss one of the lesser sins, the gateway sin I like to call it, sloth. Now, you might just think it's about being lazy, putting things off, not participating, etc... and you'd be right for the most part. Of course, there's more to it than that. It's seen by Catholics as not contributing to the betterment of mankind, thus hurting God's vision for the world, and we can't have that, can we? Sloth is one of the sins that doesn't have a lot of information available on it. It's mentioned a few times from various philosophers and religious scholars, but ultimately, like I said, it's a lesser on. BUT, it can lead to other sins such as gluttony, envy, and maybe even lust. It's also one I think most of us can relate to the most. We've all had times or days that were wasted, just sitting around doing bugger all. Thankfully, most of us don't live our entire lives in that state. Besides all that, it has one of the most gruesome deaths in Seven, so there's that. For more information, you'll just have to listen all the way through.

Seven Deadly Sins | The Big Green Monster
No, this isn't about the Hulk, but something kind of close. Today we're talking about one of of the more severe sins, one of the real bad, or heavy ones. We're talking about Envy, that big ol' monster that has taken each and every one of us at one point or another in life. As I mentioned, it's one of the more serious ones, only topped by pride - the thing committed by, ya know, Lucifer. However, it's believed that Envy was one of the first mortal sins committed when Cain killed Abel out of envy. He was indeed envious of God's favoritism towards his brother and snuffed him out like a candle. From there, it was established that envy was, indeed, very bad. Also mentioned, envy is something that most everybody has experienced, and in the age of social media, I - and many experts - believe that the issue has only been heightened. We're surrounded by everybody's successes, and never their failures, which only exasperates the feeling of failure in ones self, and elicits a covetous sensation, leading to envy. But enough of the big words, if you want to know more, give the episode a listen.

Seven Deadly Sins | Glutton for Punishment
Last episode we talked about the senusal and sexy lust. This week, not so much. Let's face it, we've all seen Seven, and we all know what gluttony looks like, and it's not pretty. Nevertheless, the temptation of being gluttonous is very easy to give into, in fact, I'm certain that most all of us have fallen into the clutches of gluttony at one point or another. Though, gluttony doesn't just mean gorging yourself with food. It's craving anything in excess, which is basically everybody in the developing world now-a-days. There isn't a whole lot to say on the topic in the write-up. I sort of leave everything on the table in the episode. But the finer points are, that it's touched on in very few religions, only a couple I could find mentioned it. Of course it's most popular in Catholicism, where anything and everything that feels good is bad, which makes you bad, so, yeah, prepare to burn in hell forever because you ate a yummy cookie. I digress. This is just our second stop on the road of the Seven Deadly Sins, so be sure to check it out.

Seven Deadly Sins: Let's talk about Lust, baby.
Oh boy, here's a fun one that's bound to upset a couple religious folk out there. Starting right now I'll be looking at the seven deadly sins, and what they mean to culture, religion, and the demons associated with them. I thought I'd start off with the super fun, lust. Now, lust doesn't necessarily mean sex, though it is often associated most with the want and desire of sexual gratification. The demon associated with said sin is Asmodeus, who we looked at in the past. In terms of lust, I explore what it means to Christianity, Catholicism, Islam, and Paganism. While they mostly agree on what it entails, some religions (looking at you Catholicism) take it much more seriously. One person in particular wrote extensively about lust, and that fellow happened to be Saint Thomas Aquinas. He broke down different aspects of the sin into categories, and it turns out not all forms of lust are all that sinful, he used logic! I know, surprising. Well, he used it for one thing, and that was nocturnal emissions, and I can only assume he said that's not a sin because he had experienced it himself. Just a hunch. Beyond that, lust is generally considered the least serious or grievous of the deadly sins for it is a sin of the flesh, and not the spirit, which are the most deadly of all sins. If you're feeling rather lustful yourself for more information, you'll just have to listen to the whole episode. I know, I'm terrible.

Ars Goetia Pt3
This week we look at the princes and marquises of hell! How fun. There are quite a few of these guys, and the themes of leading legions of demons, giving answers, and telling the past and future remain. There isn't much else to say on it, but if you listen, you'll notice that common thread pop up quite a bit - that and they're all some crazy amalgamation of beast and man when they're conjured. It's super metal. We still have one more episode on this to go, and that'll feature two more ranks of demons. Also, I do apologize for the delay's recently in episodes. I've been working on a short film, and now I'm in the marketing/fest submission phases. But hopefully soon things will get back to normal, and we can continue our once a week episodes! Hopefully...

The History of Demons | Ars Goetia Part 2
We're back, I told you I'd be back with part two of the Ars Goetia and its listing of the demon hierarchy. Last week we looked at the kings of hell, and the next logical step is the next rung down the ladder, which just happens to be... The Dukes of Hazard! I mean, Hell, the Dukes of Hell. Now, there are a lot of these guys. 23 to be exact. It's one of the most populated categories listed, and seems a bit excessive, but who am I to judge? We look at a couple of demons who we've talked about in the past, such as Astaroth, but there are a lot new ones here, and most of them are pretty metal too. There's one demon who appears as an old pale man riding a crocodile, which is bad ass in a Floridian sort of way. As with the kings, each of these demons holds domain over something, can grant some kind of knowledge, and holds power over a certain number of legions. Despite being many, these class of demons are nothing to shake a stick at. They're very powerful, especially in the right hands.

History of Demons | Ars Goetia Pt 1
The Ars Goetia is a fascinating piece of work that features a wealth of information within it, including a list of demons and their abilities. Today, and for the next little while we will be going over the demons listed, their hierarchy, and various traits, and where better to start than with the mighty kings of Hell. In this list, we have a number of big boy demons, and some you may not have heard of from. From Paimon to Ball, to Purson, we have them all. Now, of course the list goes just beyond the kings of Hell, and in future episodes we will look at the other ranks, such as princes and dukes. If there's one thing I've learned doing this series over the years it's that it is very important to know the name of the demons around us, for it's their name that gives you power over them, should you ever come face-to-face with them. I mean, it's probably best to know what you're getting into as well. You know, things such as what these demons offer, what they look like, how badly you've messed up, and so on. Throughout this series you'll get a very brief breakdown of each of these demons, and the powers they hold. It should make for an interesting listen. I hope. Maybe not... but maybe!
