Local Haunts & Paranormal Print Magazines
A couple of weeks ago I finally paid a visit to one of Austin’s cool little Occult shops. Located at 5924 S Congress Ave #23, Austin, TX 78745 is Curia Arcanum’s House of Curiosities! I’d heard great things about them from several friends and finally stopped in and met one of the owners. Its a great shop for all your occult needs and a wonderfully weird place to spend some time gazing at the wealth of mysterious and strange “curiosities.”
Onsite doing Psychic Readings was our old friend, Executive Occultis, Saul Ravencraft…
While perusing their occult library collection of books, lo and behold, there was an actual print magazine I’d never seen or heard of before: PARANORMALITY
I had to buy a copy and when I visited their website discovered that Curia Arcanum is one of only 3 locations that carry this rare print magazine!
It was great to finally visit the folks at Curia Arcanum’s House of Curiositiees!
Check em out!

Book of the Week: Late 80s AusTex Lesbian UFO Fiction!
Years ago in my day job, I became aware of an interesting book by an Austin writer about the alien abduction phenomenon of the late 1980s. The book is a contemporary take on the rise of the alien abduction experience that was released in 1989, set in Austin, as well as the forests of East Texas. Its a murder mystery that involves a foray into the UFOlogical realms of UFO sightings flaps, mysterious fires, and hidden memories of strange encounters. I recently re-read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it again.

DramaRama: Reports of the death of Ufology are greatly exaggerated
Among the wealth of important and interesting anomaly news headlines are a handful of opinion pieces on the oft repeated trope of the “Death of UFOlogy.” Veteran UFO researchers Chris Rutkowski and Kevin Randle (and undoubtedly others) responded in their own ways to an OpEd written by UFO, er um, UAP newbie Lue Elizondo and posted on September 5th, titled “Why UFOlogy Must Die.” Canadian Chris Rutkowski called folks attention to his 2010 blog post titled “The demise of ufology” while Kevin Randle wrote a new blog post titled, “Let’s Kill Ufology?”
While there was much discussion about this latest pronouncement from “Former Director AATIP” Lue Elizondo, most seemed to avoid drawing the connection of its timing and tone with the accusations from Luis Jimenez, host of the UCR (Unidentified Celebrity Review) show on YouTube and The Big Phone Home UAP-activism campaigns. While Lue Elizondo’s OpEd, alluded to his desire for, “a new UFOlogy minus the drama, the cults of personalities, and the click-bait-driven agendas that lead to petty backbiting,” and the “exchange ideas without fear of personal attack, without having to pick a side, and without middle school drama,” these were a large part of the claims made by @LuAngeles (Luis Jimenez) against Elizondo (and possibly others) in his last two UCR episodes; the first streamed live on Aug 25, 2022 (Clicks, Clique’s, & who’s really in it for the UFO money) and then the more relevant to Elizondo’s OpEd, the other UCR show (Who is Richard Butt?) streamed on September 1st. And just in case that timing isn’t enough to convince you of these two events being related… there is Lue Elizondo’s tweet on September 2nd:
@LueElizondo · Sep 2 “To avoid confusion and conjecture, neither I, nor my wife, are Richard Butt.”
Lu @LuAngeles · Sep 2 Replying to @LueElizondo Does anyone want to ask how Richard butt had details of a phone call only 4 people knew about? You may not be Richard, but you know who it is. Please tell us for clarity.
When I stumbled upon this hornets-nest of drama and accusations during the September 1st, UCR livestream, I was completely clueless as to what this was all about.
Dick Butt & The 5×5 Felon Affair
So what was all this Lue on Lu fracas action about? Well, allegedly, it was all about a text message sent by Elizondo to Jimenez decrying the “BS” of various people in the UFO/UAP scene whom Elizondo considered to be among the many “bullshit artists” with one or more of them – this is one of the many points of contention – actually having past felony convictions. Or at least that is what Jimenez thought Elizondo meant by the text, allegedly. Its all very convoluted “he said / she said” kinds of drama but with an apparent digital paper-trail that a certain “Richard Butt” was pushing Jimenez to post publicly.
Part of this drama goes all the way back to UCR shows from back in April and May:
@LuAngeles (Luis Jimenez) & The UCR Unidentified Celebrity Review show
- Who is Richard Butt? – Streamed live on Sep 1, 2022
- Clicks, Clique’s, & who’s really in it for the UFO money. – Streamed live on Aug 25, 2022
- We address the fallout with Lue Elizondo – Streamed live on May 12, 2022
- UCR CLIPS: Lue Elizondo & Alternate Twitter Accounts – Apr 30, 2022
Here is an attempt by someone at Reddit to explain all this…
You can view these alleged texts in this gallery below…
Is any of this newsworthy? As someone I deeply respect in the academic realm who is a true mover and shaker within the UFO community said to me, “I don’t understand why you very intelligent friends care about this?” To which I responded…
“Given Elizondo’s background [in Counter Intelligence], I think it understandable that he get scrutinized. The fact that this OpEd criticizing discord is released just days after he is accused of sowing discord, without his addressing that situation, to me, seems disingenuous. So if it is all a misunderstanding then he should own up to it. The person making those accusations, Luis Jimenez, seemed sincerely upset, disturbed, and frightened by the turn of events and I do think he is right to be concerned when cults of personality develop around religious belief systems like those you write about. Luis Jimenez tried to, more or less, set the record straight, allegedly – whereas Lue Elizondo issues this OpEd and doesn’t address what obviously triggered it. Maybe it is all just train-wreck, social media drama distraction, but given the accusations and the appearance of the situation it seems worthy of note to me.”

Abduction of Antônio Vilas-Boas, 1957
Abduction of Antônio Vilas-Boas, 1957
Four years before the more famous Hill Abduction, a Brazilian farmer had a hair-raising experience that is eerily reminiscent of the “alien abduction” stories brought to light in the 1980s and 90s. His case is now widely considered the first alien abduction of the post-war era, and the first to imply an agenda of alien-human hybridization.

Book Of The Week – The Contactees Die Young by Antoinette Azolakov
“The narrator, a psychiatrist, finds herself attracted to a client who experiences in nightmares an expanding “memory” of a girlhood episode. Is it contact with aliens? This story moves right along, and lesbianism is sensitively treated without exaggeration.”
“Antoinette Azolakov was born in Lufkin, Texas in 1944. Her father was in the U.S. Navy when she was born, and the Navy broke radio silence to tell him he had a baby girl. Antoinette has hardly been silent since. She taught high school English and Latin, worked in an explosives plant, as a welder, as a gas station attendant, as a landscape gardener and as a pet sitter. Her writing credits include several short stories and poems in various publications, four lesbian mysteries, and now her latest work, Ghostly Voices: Thirteen Texas Ghosts, available on Kindle. She is currently working on a new novel, Andrew Sparrow, set in early Texas. Her novel Skiptrace won the first Lambda Book Award for Best Lesbian Mystery. She lives with her ten cats and her Basset Hound in Austin, Texas.”
