January 24, 2023 – Austin, Texas

Greetings fellow Anomalists. Welcome to another edition of the Anomaly Archives eNews. I’m excited to announce that Mark Jackson and I will resume our weekly live anomalous news roundup show, Anomaly-NOW!, this Wednesday evening, January 25th at 7pm CST.

Tune-In to watch Anomaly-NOW! live via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or Twitch.

So long Amazon-Smile program… hello Patreon!

As many of you have likely heard, Amazon is ending its “Smile” charity donation program. This is an extreme disappoint and many are expressing their dismay at the company’s decision and the way they have announced this significant change. See commentary at WPTVnews, Nicole Schuman at PRnewsOnline, Seth’s Blog, and older critiques of the Amazon Smile program and the company in general at HeyDavid (circa 2019), John Kenyon (circa 2017?), and ArsTechnica (circa 2015). The “donation” program has always been problematic but it was a funding source we were slowly cultivating and growing – but no more. Thanks to all of you who participated over the past several years by choosing us as your charity of choice; you have until the end of February to continue supporting us through this soon to be ending charitable funding source.

Meanwhile… the Anomaly Archives will soon be launching a new membership community fundraising portal using the Patreon platform along with an educational initiative that has been a part of the long-term mission and vision for the Anomaly Archives / Scientific Anomaly Institute.

More details coming soon.

In the meantime, check out the rest of the eNewsletter below!

Video-Of-The-Week

The Mythologist © NFTS 2004
The National Film & Television School 

“Synopsis: On the surface ‘Armen Victorian’ seems like a regular guy. He lives in Nottingham with his wife and two children and his occupations have been variously listed as insurance salesman, shop assistant and cleaner. But dig a little deeper and Armen’s life starts to resemble that of a latter-day Walter Mitty.

Diplomat, adventurer, UFO investigator, crop circle researcher, intelligence officer – is this the secret life of a Nottingham shop assistant? His world is a shadowy world of counter-espionage, disinformation, subterfuge, spooks, spies, lies and the keeping and revealing of secret knowledge.

The Mythologist explores Armen’s life and his impact on the murky and mythic realms of paranormal research”

Book-Of-The-Week

Dreams: Your Magic Mirror

With Interpretations of Edgar Cayce

by Elsie Sechrist

 

“The book that started thousands on their journey of dream study and interpretation is now available to a new generation. Elsie Sechrist knew well-known psychic Edgar Cayce personally and received readings from him. In its seventh printing, Dreams: Your Magic Mirror provides clear evidence from Sechrist’s own research and from the Cayce material that dreams are of crucial importance to all of us. Includes a foreword written by Hugh Lynn Cayce, Edgar’s eldest son. 

Until her death in 1992, Elsie Sechrist was an internationally known speaker on dreams and the Edgar Cayce readings who lectured at colleges, universities, and churches. She also appeared on numerous radio and television shows providing audiences throughout the world with guidance in dream interpretation.”

Happy New Year!!

As I write this we are hurtling towards the new year. 2022 has not been a particularly good year for me personally but I hope we all have gained something positive from the experiencing of it. It has certainly been a momentous year for the study of UFO encounters and for the continued expansion of “conversations over saucers.” The halls of academe and the offices of governments and militaries have been abuzz with talk of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena and the Archiving of the Impossible. “Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K” my friends. Even the former President & First Lady’s production company are apparently getting in on the UFO/UAP-Action with a new Netflix series based on the famous Betty & Barney Hill abduction case…

For more on the latest news on the government’s attempts to rebrand UFOs as UAPs, check out these links and more in the Anomaly News Headlines section below:

I would also like to direct your attention to these excellent analyses by skeptic Mick West:

Meanwhile, you should absolutely check out the new Vodcasts featured in our Video-Of-The-Week section below from Greg & Dana Newkirk / Planet Weird / Newkirk Museum of the Paranormal, called the Haunted Objects Podcast. The Newkirks have created the best paranormal community and recently launched this phenomenal podcast. All 5 episodes released thus far have been fantastic and I highly recommend each of them but for those of you interested in UFOs you should take a gander (you can also listen to an audio-only version via your favorite podcatcher app) at these 2 episodes about Mothman and the Betty & Barney Hill abduction case.

PLUS!!! An Extra Super Mega Audio-Of-The-Week with The scary sound of Earth’s magnetic field and a slew of amazing audio podcast content focused mainly on UFOs, Alien Abduction, Sexuality / Gender Identity, Tarot and the often sorely lacking issue of ETHICS plus some ecological approaches! All links to Spotify unless otherwise indicated.

Until next year … have fun, be safe, and keep exploring the mysteries of reality!

Defending the Mothman: High Strangeness Holiday Special – Episode 005 – Haunted Objects Podcast

“Ever been so scared you dropped a baby? In this holiday special, we crush on the best high strangeness movie ever made: The Mothman Prophecies. Along the way, Connor offends Indrid Cold, Greg demonstrates how to drive ultraterrestrials crazy, Dana has trouble talking to ghosts, and we learn why West Virginia’s official monster is a queer icon. Slather on your chapstick and hold onto your babies, because it’s time to defend Mothman from slander.”

… and …

Examining Betty Hill’s Alien Abduction Dress – Episode 003 – Haunted Objects Podcast

“In September of 1961, on a desolate mountain pass in New Hampshire, strange lights in the sky heralded the introduction of a new, more terrifying type of extraterrestrial encounter; one where stolen memories, painful medical experiments, and regression hypnosis replace friendly visitors from Venus. In this episode, we examine one of the rarest artifacts in the Newkirk Museum: pieces of the dress Betty Hill was wearing as she was abducted by aliens. The gang discusses their own ill-advised adventures in hypnosis, Greg lays out a government conspiracy, and Connor learns that the answers to life’s mysteries are found in Super Mario 64.”

 


Audio-Of-The-Week

The scary sound of Earth’s magnetic field

“Despite being essential to life on Earth, the magnetic field isn’t something we can actually see in itself, or ever hear. But, remarkably, scientists at the Technical University of Denmark have taken magnetic signals measured by ESA’s Swarm satellite mission and converted them into sound – and for something that protects us, the result is pretty scary.”

The Tujunga Canyon Contacts by Ann Druffel and D. Scott Rogo

   

Tujunga Canyon Contacts: Revisited, Reconsidered by ProfessorWHAM

“…tells the true stories of five young women “abductees” who lived in and near Tujunga Canyon, northeast of Los Angeles, and who were all linked by more or less intimate personal relationships. The abductions and related events, which took place over a period of more than two decades, were first investigated by UFO researcher Ann Druffel for five full years, and later by Druffel and parapsychologist D. Scott Rogo together. Many of the abduction details first revealed in the Tujunga Canyon case have been confirmed in the hundreds of cases that followed it. First published during the peak of the 20th century’s UFO abduction epidemic, THE TUJUNGA CANYON CONTACTS was only the second book written about so-called “alien abductions.” This edition of the classic work contains the two new chapters prepared for the updated version of the book. During this updating of the story, Druffel first realized that abduction scenarios can be fended off by strongwilled, confident experiencers, since three of the five young women intuitively discovered, and used, various “resistance techniques” to fend off, and eventually end, the harrowing attacks.”

KTXK.org UFO & Bigfoot Event Coverage

Tx UFO Con Coverage

  • Nick Redfern is a notable author, researcher and journalist – whose research and writing on cryptids and UFOs has garnered him appearances on the history channel, BBC, Travel Channel and many others – On Saturday he was the key note speaker at the first Texas UFO convention in Jefferson Texas – Sabrina McCormick Reports   (November 23,  2022).
  • Sabrina McCormick caught up with speakers from the first Texas UFO Convention in Jefferson Texas recently. The conference was held this past Saturday there, and featured researchers and authors focusing on UFO encounters in the Lone Star State. In this instalment, she talks with an archivist out of Austin, Texas who is trying to make information sharing about these encounters and other such anomalies easier to access.   (November 22,  2022).
  • The city of Jefferson held its first annual UFO convention over the weekend – Sabrina McCormick covered the event, which featured a panel of experts that spoke about unexplained encounters in Texas  (November 21,  2022).
  • If you’re looking for an out of this world experience, Jefferson, Texas may have the solution you seek. The city will host its first annual UFO convention this Saturday. It will feature a cross section of Texas UFO enthusiasts and experts says event organizer, Craig Woolheater. Sabrina McCormick reports  (November 16,  2022). 

 

Tx Bigfoot Conf Coverage

  • Jefferson Texas has become known as the Bigfoot Capital of Texas, there is even a statue of the famed cryptid prominently placed in the city. For the last several years, the city has hosted the Texas Bigfoot Convention. The three-day event serves as a place where enthusiasts, cryptozoologists and people who have had unusual and unexplained experiences can come to swap stories and learn more about the creature (and a host of other such cryptids). Sabrina McCormick spoke with several of the event’s speakers, this interview features world explorer Adam Davies.  (October 28,  2022).
  • Native Texan, Lyle Blackburn may wear only one hat (that is the signature black, wide brimmed cowboy hat he is often seen in) but he has many roles including author, actor, musician, and cryptozoological researcher. As a child Blackburn became fascinated with the Boggy Creek monster after watching the film. Today, he has become a notable expert on the beast and other such cryptids. Sabrina McCormick spoke with Blackburn at the Texas Big Foot Conference held in Jefferson, Texas this October.   (October 28,  2022).
  • From the wilds of Texas’ back country to the streets of the Dallas Metroplex, paranormal phenomena and strange creatures abound in Jason McLean’s book Metroplex Monsters. Sabrina McCormick spoke with McLean recently at the Texas Bigfoot Conference in Jefferson.   (October 28,  2022).
  • According to the Bigfoot Research Organization, or BFRO, regional sightings of the cryptid in the state of Oklahoma are most prevalent in LeFlore County, close to the Arkansas Border. The second most common area for sightings is nearby McCurtain County. The mountains stretch through both counties. At a recent Bigfoot Conference in Jefferson Texas, Sabrina McCormick spoke with one researcher who has been studying and documenting sightings in the Kiamichi area for more than twenty years. Today she files the last in a series of interviews from that conference.  (October 28,  2022).

Book-Of-The-Week

From JoshuaCutchin.com:

“Eyewitnesses, investigators, and cryptozoologists worldwide contend ample evidence exists supporting the survival of large, hairy, apelike creatures alongside mankind today, lurking in the wilderness. By all appearances, these beings appear wholly natural, interacting with their surroundings and leaving behind hair, blood, droppings, and, of course, footprints.

Yet despite their apparently physical nature, bigfoot and its hairy hominid kin consistently appear mired in High Strangeness—the peculiar, ineffable, and nonsensical absurdities so often encountered in paranormal phenomena.

Some sightings seem more consistent with mythology than biology. Bigfoot often present supernatual attributes, like luminescent eyes or the ability to pass, ghostlike, through structures.  Anomalous lights are regulalry seen in areas of frequent sasquatch activity. Footprints persistently, if rarely, display odd numbered toes, and—most bafflingly—bigfoot trackways suddenly terminate in the middle of open, untouched terrain.

In Volume 1 of Where the Footprints End: High Strangeness and the Bigfoot Phenomenon, authors Joshua Cutchin and Timothy Renner carefully examine not only the intersection of hairy apemen with global folklore—of poltergeists, faeries, extraterrestrials, magic, witches, ghosts, and archetypal women-in-white—but also question the fundamental assumptions underlying contemporary cryptozoological beliefs surrounding bigfoot.”
