Vaughn Middle School Gets Rocked

My wife, to this day, swears that sometime in ’87 or ’88, butt-metal legends Krokus played a show at her middle school in Reno. Their appearance coincided with a special “pep rally” assembly, and she remembers that the drummer busted out with a particularly long solo. “Nobody was really into it” she says, probably because...

Hair

I was in my principal’s office this morning, just chatting when I looked down and noticed a large tuft of hair on my sleeve. We’re talking about 30 individual hairs. It looked like women’s hair, but I could be wrong. I do know it was weird. I stopped at the gas station this morning, but...

UPDATE: (Unexplained Incident #3: The Black Triangle)

While still technically unsolved, this incident has become a lot more interesting in retrospect due to the fact that many people have apparently seen exactly what I did that night. I was recently poking around on the National UFO Reporting Center site (which is pretty interesting), and came across dozens of eyewitness accounts of basically...

Everybody’s Favorite Endocrine Gland

Earlier this evening, the wife and I went to one of our favorite places for dinner. After we’d sat down and ordered, I told her about an interesting but sad story I read on a news site today about a young girl in Maryland named Brooke Greenberg. Apparently, she has an unknown syndrome of some...

Ashtray Incident

This morning I woke up to go to work, and noticed that the driver’s door was partly opened. I thought it was weird, considering I had gone in the car, but only in the passenger side, and back the night before looking for CDs. I noticed in my driver’s seat there were some pennies, and...

The Curious Case of Morning Star

I recently came upon something very strange that I can not explain… not at all. It is very odd to say the least… As most of you know, I have recently moved into a new house. I am now living with my brother and his friend in a cool little house here in town. We...

Hungry?

"God, there are a lot of hungry people in the world and right now I am one of them, can I have something to eat?"

Unexplained Incident #4: Who Threw That?

When I was about 16, I was sitting in the living room with my dad and sister one evening before dinner. My mom was getting ready to put the food on the table, and we were all just sitting around talking. “Okay, let’s eat!” she said, motioning for us to come and sit at the...

Unexplained Incident #3: The Black Triangle

When I was about 11 or 12, I used to sleep out on our back deck in the summertime and look at stuff with my telescope. I used to be into astronomy back then, and would sometimes stay up late. One night, I had stayed up until around 1:30, looking at the moon and all...

Unexplained Incident #2 : Helicopter Hijinks

One summer day around the time I was in 7th grade, my Dad told us that “uncle Ross”, one of his best friends from college, was going to be coming up from the bay area in a few days. This was especially exciting, because Ross is a helicopter pilot – and was going to be...

Unexplained Incident #5- Hey what’s that sound is it a bigfoot?

I had another weird incident. It’s supposed to be 1-3 I know, but Eduardo has asked me to share this as well. It was 2 years ago and I had gone camping at Feather Falls with Pecos, Aaron, Jason, and Trentino. We had eaten, and stayed up pretty late drinking and conversing. About midnight we...

Unexplained Incident #4- Night Scream

In the early 1990’s I was at my house, with Pecos, we were sitting on the curb in front of my house. We were just sort of drinking soda and shooting the bull when we heard a scream. The scream sounded very primal, and very loud. It wasn’t like anything I’ve ever heard. It came...
