Ghost Hunters Halloween Live 2008

In case you missed the live Halloween episode of Ghost Hunters at Fort Deleware, here it is in 4 parts. There are a few audio and video quirks, but that is due more to live television than the file itself – at least I hope so. The quality is good and there is plenty of fun to be had watching this massive 7 hour event.

I haven’t watched the entire thing yet, but in a similar vein as last year, there is a little too much goofing around and trying to be amusing rather than investigating the Fort. Again, I’m disappointed in Kristen and her antics of trying to showcase the ECW wrestle “The Miz” rather than focusing her attention on the investigation. I had the same complaint for the Halloween episode last year where she seemed to spend more time trying to show how smart she was and belittling the “Hunt for the Hunter” contestants than doing her job as an investigator.

Josh is great as usual as host, adapting to the live scenario with good humor and clever wit. I’m glad they got him again; he keeps everything moving and keeps it interesting in the quiet times.

It’s fun stuff to watch, so if you missed it live the other night now is your chance to get you downloadable copy.

Frankenstein’s castle offers Halloween chills

MUEHLTAL, Germany – Boris Karloff never walked these grounds, but the history of Burg Frankenstein may have inspired Mary Shelley’s famous monster.

Since then an estimated 15,000 people flock to the former keep near Darmstadt in western Germany annually for chills, frights and the chance to walk through the halls of the place that many believe inspired the creation of “The Modern Prometheus,” as Shelley subtitled her famous novel.

This is your pumpkin, ON FIRE!!

Demented Clown Flaming Pumpkin The night was awash in the silken glow of orange as it gently illuminated my delicate pumpkin carving. A faint glimmer of light that cast soft shadows all around.

Then I added gasoline!

Here we are with my latest batch of diabolical creations! With the help of my son I helped two more pumpkins fulfill their ultimate Halloween destiny and sent their orange little souls to the great pumpkin patch in the sky.

This weekend’s creations were Dementia The Clown and The Immortal. They were actually pretty intricate carvings and each took almost two hours to carve and complete. However, they look pretty darn cool. But I have to say that the more time I spend carving the less time they last under the big flame. The heat and flame rips right through the delicate parts the face starts to come apart within a couple of minutes.

The Immortal Flaming Pumpkin Obviously you aren’t supposed to expose your carvings to the conditions and torture I do, but I figure if decide to play along I just wanted to let you know what you’re in for.

The results were unusual to say the least, some of the shots look just plain bizarre. The flames seem to be shooting off in all directions including right through the face. I have to admit this is the first time I’ve used actual gasoline for the fuel source. I much prefer the lamp oil, but at $7.99 a gallon versus $2.40 a gallon, the budget dictates we cut back on costs of these little luxury items, especially when you consider just how many pumpkins meet their maker at my hands.

The Immortal Flaming Pumpkin But anyway, check out the photo gallery, there are some great pictures in this batch. Halloween is only 4 days away and I have to come up with my big finale. I’m not sure if I should go with a big finale like I did last year and set off multiple pumpkins at a time or try to come up with some intricate design in a huge pumpkin. I might have some visitors coming over that night and they may be bringing their own pumpkins so there is still much to plan and plot. Either way, it should be pretty cool.

Of course there is that tinge of sadness since I only get to do this one more time for the year then I have to put it away until 2009.

This is your pumpkin.
This is your pumpkin, ON FIRE!!

The Dark Church

church at night with ornage glow What started as taking some long exposures of a church at night turned into some amusingly eerie photos. I was simply trying to get the details of the church, but the streets lights ended up casting an interesting red color over the building and the clouds began to move in. When you combine this with nearly a full moon it makes for some very interesting photos.

long exposure of church at night This is a beautiful church built before the 1900’s with a weathered façade, wonderful stained glass and carefully carved statues both around the grounds and nestled within the alcoves. It was a bit of a brisk night, but when I started out it was bright with the full moon. The church was reasonably well lit so it seemed like a fun experiment to try and photograph it. The sodium lamps immediately gave an unusual orange tint to the church. Plus, right when I started scattered clouds started to appear and moon became obscured. These weren’t meant to be Halloween shots, but everything came together and made them that way on their own. The tower of the church took on an almost ghostly appearance and the normally white statues began to feel a little more haunting. I ended up having a lot more fun taking pictures than I’d imagined. It turned out to be a completely different experience.
