31: GHOSTS OF 2016

EPISODE 31: GHOSTS OF 2016

 


PLAY EPISODE 31: GHOSTS OF 2016:


T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas compile their best content for 2016 on this review episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show. They feature their top selections in ghost stories, segments of interviews, music and horror fiction.

Four paranormal investigators are featured in this episode. Mark Nesbitt, Mister Ghosts of Gettysburg tells the story of a haunted hospital scene from the time of the American Civil War. Students rode the lift down to the basement, and when they opened the door, a civil war scene from a hospital materialized in all the carnage and blood. When they went back, it vanished. Some pain is never forgotten, and the scars from that war run deep in this country, in Pennsylvania.

Debi Chestnut retells the story of her first childhood encounter with a ghost named Nathanial and her quest for sanity in an ignorant time. She’s written several popular books on the paranormal; to whit, Something Wicked and Stalking Shadows. She’s a member of the Shadow Stalkers paranormal group.

Zach Smith and Perry Johnson of the famous web series, Afterlife Sessions, talk about their early demonic experiences. Most ghost hunters have an early encounter with the supernatural, and this leads them to a life of exploring that experience, trying to make sense of what they saw as children.

 

We play Wily Bo and the Swamp Music Player’s song The Devil’s Toothpick. We’ve grown fond of Wily Bo and hope to get him on the show soon. David Walton sings the WWI folksong, The Hearse Song or The Worms Go in, made famous again by the horror story series, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

 

The Grave Girls come back with a story collected from Old Charleston Jail, Crazy Willie, and Randi from the Cats Meow Mystical Store in Lansdale, PA tells of her encounter with a possessed man whose demonic keeper unleashed a plague of horseflies upon her shop.

We also play horror author David Dunwoody’s insane story, Pixel, narrated by T. Fox Dunham’s wife, Allison Ledbetter.

It goes without saying that he’s never been the same. Because he isn’t the same. He is host to a sinister passenger, a passenger wearing him down from the inside.

And of course, we play our most notorious segment, Clown News, from the great clown invasion of 2016. Enjoy it while you can. All clown news stopped in October. The clowns were defeated.

And Phil Thomas’ new short film is now available! A Short Term Effect is a new flash film in a series of upcoming films from him and his friends. From Phil Thomas:

Our latest film is an eight minute short entitled “A Short Term Effect” that we shot this past October. With recent quality contributions to horror such as The Conjuring, Annabelle, You’re Next, Lights Out, and Don’t Breathe, it compelled us to do a series of shorts throughout 2017. It’s a fun ghost story involving a depressed man, some haunted woods and a chance encounter with the girl of his dreams—but will he be able to close the deal? We will be posting other short films every few months as long as people are enjoying them. Please check them out.

Watch it now for free!

The show returns in January 2017 with new content as the hosts explore the darkness.

Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night

 

Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos

William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.

29: KRAMPUS VS SANTA

 

 

Listen to EPISODE 29: KRAMPUS VS SANTA



 

The two siblings of the winter holidays meet in combat. KRAMPUS VS SANTA! On episode 29, occult scholar and paranormal investigator of the west, Katie ‘Montana’ Jordan returns to co-host and share her expertise in both the holiday of Yule, holiday traditions and that once-forgotten Christmas bad boy, the Krampus. We’re here to carry the torch of the old traditions, keeping the light alive in dark times.

Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic folklore figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”,[1] who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in regions including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia and Northern Italy.[2][3] The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated a pre-Christian origin for the figure. (From Wikipedia.)

THE MAN IN FLANNEL GHOST STORY

After talking about holiday plans and feasting, the hosts open the show with Katie’s true ghost story, The Man in Flannel—a story about one of her early supernatural experiences on a Montana ranch. Who was this mysterious man who used to appear to Katie? He bore no malice to her, and then one day, he just vanished.

“I looked up to see the strange man who seemed to be smiling and waving at me.” – From A Man in Flannel.

 

T. Fox Dunham, Phil Thomas & Katie Jordan then discuss the myriad traditions of the winter months. Katie shares her knowledge about the pagan holiday of Yule, talking about the origin of many modern traditions of Christmas—and of course the practice of wassailing, a singing tradition best done with a little beer or in the case of the old tradition, apple cider in bowls. Learn more about the pagan traditions of Yule.

The word wassail comes from Old English was hál, related to the Anglo-Saxon greeting wes þú hál , meaning “be you hale”—i.e., “be healthful” or “be healthy”. (From Wikipedia.)

 

 

 

“Health to thee, good apple-tree,
Well to bear, pocket-fulls, hat-fulls,
Peck-fulls, bushel-bag-fulls.”

— Medieval Wassailing Song

 

 

 

 

KRAMPUS INTERVIEW & SANTA SHOWDOWN

 

Sadistic and quite popular Christmas cards from the 1800s featured many worse fates for bad children.

The hosts of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show were honored and terrified to be visited by the ancient Germanic demon of Yule, The Krampus! Now popular in modern media, this demonic evil twin of the traditional character of Santa is interviewed by Katie. They discuss his pagan origins, his personal traditions such as punishing the bad children and his resurgence in culture. Of course, Santa shows up, unable to yield the spotlight, and the two get into a serious melee, all caught on the show. Phil & Fox spectate the battle as the two old rivals battle with instruments of cheer until winner takes all.

Krampus: Oh, JA! You see, I carry a stick with me and basket on my back. If a child has been naughty, I beat them with my stick. If they really make me mad, I shove them in my basket then try to drown them in the river.

 

Fox got a little tipsy on eggnog and rum while fetching the tree last year and sang a little torch song to cheer up his friend Debs. On Youtube! Click here!

 

 

KRAMPUS IS COMING TO TOWN CAROL

Musical performer Rusty Cage performs his new holiday classic devoted to the fiend, “Krampus is Coming to Town.” It’s a dark version of classic Christmas carols performed with folk guitar. Rusty is cult personality on Youtube and popular Indie musician. Make this song a new holiday classic! Let us not forget the Krampus this time of year and our pagan roots.

Find Uncle Rusty’s music on Bandcamp and support Indie artists.

 

 

 

 

THE ELF ON THE FIRE PLACE MANTLE – HOLIDAY HORROR FICTION

They end the show with a new flash fiction piece from host Phil Thomas, a dark holiday story called The Elf on the Fireplace Mantle. It’s a great little dark holiday tale.

Against his children’s sobbing protests, the elf went out in the garbage that night, only to make another appearance the next morning in its usual position above the fireplace. – The Elf on the Fireplace Mantle by Phil Thomas.

 

EPISODE 30: THE 3 GHOSTS (In Time for Christmas!)

Phil and Fox will return for our next episode, The 3 Ghosts, based on the writings of Charles Dickens. Joining them again this year is horror author John C. Foster! He’s the one in the middle, taken at our KGB Club event.

CROSSED CONNECTIONS

Crossed Connections

Told by Barret Ravenhurst, PHD, Owner of The Emporium of Curious Goods.

Written by T. Fox Dunham

Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, United States

 

Listen to the narrated version by David Walton on EP27: DECEMBER DARKNESS

Barret Ravenhurst told me a strange tale of telephones and the dead last time I visited Jim Thorpe, PA. Jim Thorpe is a beautiful town at the southern end of what we call the Poconos, a mountainous region of Pennsylvania. Many visit these mountains to enjoy the forests, parks and lakes to ski, hike or kayak. The towns were built during the coal mining era of Pennsylvania and are deeply rooted in Irish folklore and ghost stories.

Barret Ravenhurst runs the The Emporium of Curious Goods, a new age store providing relics and supplies to several religions including Buddhism and paganism. It is a beautiful store, more like a museum that smells of sweet incense and offers decorations of nature and Asian culture to the eye.

When I met Barret on this later day of August, he was a bit astounded by a series of events that had recently transpired. He says the events are hard to follow but all is understood by the end of the tale.

Years ago, they had a wiccan clerk named Debbie. She’d emailed him that her life partner, Bernie, had died of cancer at the age of 56 and asked Barret if he knew anyone who would conduct a Wiccan funeral. Barret knew of just the person: Psychic & Tarot reader, Dave.  Dave said he could do the service on Friday at 8PM, even though he was a stranger to Debbie and Bernie. After the service on Friday, Bernie was cremated and the ashes were scattered Sunday.

Now the Emporium as with all the downtown shops of Jim Thorpe, PA, has terrible pavement in the front. There was a cement contractor doing most of them over, and this contractor left a contract for Barret to sign on that Sunday. Barret decided to call the contractor’s office and leave a message for him to stop in the next day to pick up the contract. He dialed the 610 number listed on his contact information and was surprised when a lady answered. Barret introduced himself, said where he was calling from, and to his further surprise the women seemed to know Barret and even sounded happy that he called. He started to give the message about the contract, and the woman interrupted him: “Do you know who you are talking to, Barret?”

Barret replied with, “Ok. I give up. Who are you?” Her answer nearly made him fall off his chair.

“This is Debbie. We are out in the cemetery scattering Bernie’s ashes right now. I felt my phone vibrate. What number were you trying to call?” He told her, and the number shared no similarity to hers.

Barret thought this was the end of the story, but a little after 3PM, his friend Rick said he was hungry for french fries, so he phoned a nearby pizza place. However, instead of getting the pizza place, he ended up calling Dave, the psychic who performed the wiccan funeral. Again, the number was different. Dave told him he was out of fries and should order Chinese instead. Barret nearly fell out of his chair again.

Often, we hear stories of the dead trying to communicate through various and beclouded devices. Was this another such story? Or just a series of coincidences? What is the telephone connection to the dead? And can we hear their message?

SAMHAIN

Katie comes on the show to not only talk about her work in the paranormal but also to explain the pagan holiday of Samhain—the foundation-holiday of Halloween. There are many misconceptions about the pagan new year, and Katie shares her knowledge of its history and modern practice. T. Fox Dunham shares his story of Samhain. It is a special time for him, a second birthday. When he was 18, his battle with a rare form of lymphoma nearly ended with his death, but through a miracle after several months of intense chemotherapy and radiation, he survived and found new life on Samhain. They both talk about this sacred and ancient time of death and rebirth in the natural circle of life.

“The Dark is to be respected and not feared.” – Katie  Montana Jordan

Katie shares two true ghost stories: Ghost Hands and Scaredy Cat both narrated by voice actors. Ghost Hands is the true account of disembodied hands who got fresh with our Katie while she was on a ghost hunt!

“Beware the Hand Man.” – Katie Montana Jordan

Ghosts usually scare you, but in Scaredy Cat, she scared the ghost!

The Final Ingredient:

British folksinger David Walton returns to narrate with his life partner, Marie, a dark short fiction by T. Fox Dunham, The Final Ingredient—a tale of a witch in need of a last element for a dark recipe.

“Forever shall I live, and so shall I teach you, if you can name the missing ingredient. Fail, and today you sup on stew, then anon worms shall sup on you.”

RavenAmpersand

Velaraas

Check out Velaraas on their FACEBOOK PAGE

velarass-album-cover-pictureThey finish the show with a song from a band out of Portland, Oregon Velaraas playing from their album, Gilded Age. The song is called the Peace Maker. They’re a four piece band: Thelonius Spence (guitars and vocals), Scott Walker (drums), Ian Engblom (bass), and Colin Stroup (guitars and vocals). They’ve been together a little over 2 years.

VELARAAS – Vela means several things. Most importantly to them it means “time”. It also means “the hour of death” and “passion”. Ras (in which they added an a) means several things as well. Notably, it means “to feel”, “love”, “reverberate”, “roar” and “perceive”.

The “time” part of Vela is important because each of their albums is lyrically and somewhat musically centered in a time period, the Peace Maker being set mostly in the latter part of the Wild West.  Each song is a small vignette of its own. Some of their songs are based on true events, some are partially based on events and others are pure fiction.
