Quote from: Art Bell on November 05, 2013, 11:20:11 PMOk, I agree, I am a washed up has been who has lost what little talent I might have had, my memory is fading
fast and my skills as a Interviewer no longer exist. Like a Prize fighter who took one to many punches I am off
in zombieville. I can take a hint, I am done. So I will now leave and abandon my idea of free streaming along
with a life that has now lost all it's meaning. I am sorry to have crushed so many dreams and now understand
full well that the real King has taken his rightful place on the throne of Bell Gab. I understand I am dead to you

Quote from: albrecht on October 12, 2013, 03:28:58 PMI'm happy to see that Ms.Paglini is keeping up the Dreamland/C2C and now Dark Matter tradition and still has a website, like all other guests throughout history, that looks mid-1990's and designed by a high-schooler with a free geocities software or something. Buy that essential oil so she can be first to upgrade!

Quote from: ACE of CLUBS on January 08, 2013, 10:38:50 PMIt's always been a question for me ...... why are we so complex? .....  Equipped with memory, an inherent grasp of 'right/wrong', a range of emotions, and the ability to reason ..... the list goes on.

To have all these 'qualities' and a relatively short lifespan leads me to wonder ...... what comes next?

Another thing that interests me about paranormal or edge subject matter is that, some of us are drawn to such like moths to cosmic flame, and others not so much.  Speaking to the choir here, I've grown accustomed to the odd looks I get when certain acquaintances see my recent reading book piles.  Recently, I was "counseling" a young friend concerning some seriously complicated life issues, trying to talk him down, when he glances from my books on the coffee table to me and says, "Why should I listen to you when you've got books about Manson and Oswald and stuff?"  The kid had a good point.

Quote from: (Sandman) Logan-5 on September 04, 2015, 10:53:59 PMVoltage is the electrical push and amperage is the electrical current.

Quote from: ZomZom on September 18, 2015, 11:16:22 AMWhen I was maybe five or six years old (1970 or 71) I was about to fall asleep one night when my sister, sleeping in a twin bed on the opposite side of the room, called my name.  I rolled over to face her, prepared to tell her to get to sleep.  Instead, I saw two little men standing in the hallway door, completely black, wearing brimmed hats.  These men were connected in the middle so that a bar of black joined them at their midsection.  I could not see through them, and the black was completely black, like an absence of light rather than a color.

They started to come into the room, sort of waddling as they moved.  "They're coming in," my sister said.  I replied, "I know."

The next thing I remember is coming to on a couch in the downstairs living room.  I was on my mother's lap, crying.  I remember being confused that I didn't remember beginning to cry, or remember having walked down the stairs.  My sister was crying on my father's lap.

The next day my sister and I were across the street in a friend's garage with a bunch of the neighborhood kids.  I told them we had seen a ghost the night before.  I explained that the ghost looked like two little hat-wearing men that were connected in the middle, but my sister interrupted and said that wasn't what they looked like at all.  She said they looked like worms.  I was angry that no one would believe our already-incredible story now that she was saying she saw something different than I did.

All the kids left the garage to go play, but I stayed behind a moment.  I stared at my feet and the garage floor, and told myself to never forget that what happened that night was real.

Quote from: Zircon on May 16, 2012, 12:27:45 PMOK, I mentioned I'd post on a dream I had regarding the events immediately following my death.

In December 1997 I had the strangest dream. Have never had a dream like this in my life prior to this and can't recall any dream I've had since with the impact in my waking state following this one.

At the onset of the dream, one of my brothers, who died of cancer in 1978 appeared before me and warned me of my own demise. This was the first time I had ever seen him in a dream in the 19 years since his passing.

Next, a was in a field of grass or grain on what appeared to be a bright, sunny morning. I looked up and saw cloud formations slowly moving in a counter clockwise manner. No rain or storms threatened as they were puffy cumulus clouds in a bright blue sky.

I looked down at myself and I seemed younger. I was wearing sand colored jeans and a dungaree shirt. I felt really good as the injuries I've sustained over time were absent. I was barefoot.

Holding my arms out at shoulder height, I began to glide out into the field, feeling the grasses tickle the soles of my feet about six inches or so off the ground. The sunlight was comfortable and the air fresh and clean. I closed my eyes while smiling as this occurred.

When I opened my eyes I could see a small group of people, none of whom I knew suprisingly, clustered out in the middle of a rise in this field. They seemed unawares of me upon my arrival so listened in to the conversation.

The subject matter being discussed concerned my death. I wasn't alarmed as I was truly enjoying the state in which I found myself.  Death or not, my continuance afterwards was not only happening but I was unaware/couldn't recall any trauma when transitioning from the biologically living to the the state I was in now. They then saw me but didn't speak - just smiled. I closed my eyes and smiled and then woke up in my bed around 4 AM.

So what was I to make of this dream? Had I died in my sleep - clearly "no"? Was I going to die soon? Was this a warning for me to take immediate action? As it turns out it was a warning as a trip to my cardiologist was none too soon - I had one month before a massive haert attack was almost certain to occur. Got a 5-way bypass as a result two days after my birthday. I would have died at age 49 ... as a result I am still among the living.

Hopefully the dream I had is what I will finally experience when my time is actualy over here in this plane of existence. I have a lot to discuss with my brother and I'd like to spend a lot of time exploring the universe.

Quote from: zeebo on October 24, 2013, 09:43:41 PMRandom thought.  Recently I started reading Dune for the first time in many years.  There's a thing called "wormsign", which is when they can see the giant worms cruising through the desert.  I'm now visualizing our wormhole messages rippling through the desert towards Art's studio.  Yep, good scotch tonite.

Quote from: albrecht on March 10, 2023, 01:59:37 PM"Hud" was a great movie. I never seen but 1st quote was by Maggie Smith in 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.' Everyone will recognize Maggie Smith as she has been in almost British movie and tv production and many American. She was great in 'Murder By Death' with a great ensemble cast! "Oh, that's tacky! That's REALLY tacky!"
I seem to recall that Hud was one of Coaster's favorite movies.
Quote from: yumyumtree on July 22, 2013, 11:54:26 PM"I didn't betray you, I merely put a stop to you."
This is from an acclaimed British film of the late 1960s.
"I have a lot of experience dealing with disgruntled people." This is from a well-known neo noir of the early 80s.
"Death is a natural thing--it comes to dogs, horses,men."
This is a Paul Newman classic based on a Larry McMurtry story.
(Actually Paul said, "Happens to everybody: Horses, dogs, men. Nobody gets out of life alive." From the movie Hud. I've watched that movie so many times, I've got the dialogue memorized.)

Quote from: Yorkshire pud on December 31, 2012, 03:25:32 AM1) Several YT videos will spring up, (The same people who predicted Elenin, tw suns, Nibiru, Mayan death calender etc) conveniently 'forgetting' previous 'predictions' and spout yet more shit.

2) Richard C Hoagland, will drop the C from his name, and this will eventually evolve into him simply being called Dickhead.

3) Earthquakes will still happen, but someone will find a way of implying they're unusual

4) Alex 'Fuckwit' Jones will rant and rant about hoow 2013 WILL be the year for FEMA camps to be the focus of mass exterminations, because the population refused to be injected with rat poison.

5) David Wilcock, will add up how much money he's made from the guillible, go on air and yell 'Bye bye Suckers!!' and buy an island in the sun, attended on by alien beauty queens.

6) Kerry Cassidy will do a Playboy centre spread 'Esoteric MILF of the month'. Victoria Secret will provide the attire.

Quote from: bellNwhistle on December 13, 2015, 06:58:13 PMDid you call into his show drunk? Were you being an ass on his show? He could have just hung up on you and not bothered to talk to you off the air. I'll bet that's more than most radio show hosts would do.
Quote from: Yining_Wu_F.U. on December 13, 2015, 07:15:32 PMyes I was drunk. I kept forgetting what I called about. I would remember for a second and then forget again. I kept telling Art hold on, hold on, but he is such an impatient jerk he wouldn't stop rushing me. then off the air he was smoking right away, I heard the lighter and he took a drag between "stupid" and "sh*thead"

Quote from: wr250 on January 11, 2014, 07:48:10 PMi ran into art the other day. he said he had some  papers and a couple of (betamax) videos. he let me look through the papers , and while alot was blacked out, there was a map with the word bigfoot on it, a video labeled "victor" a envelope labeled "barry sotero's birth certificate" and another video labeled "obama is a illegal alien from zeta reticulli(sp?)" , along with some other misc papers which looked like financial aid records and one labeled "bob" . i didnt ask him anything just looked then said goodbye and have fun.

art swears by the betamax, he says he has 10, and buys everyone he finds for parts.

Like 11 years before the news.  Way to go, WOTR.
Quote from: WOTR on September 04, 2011, 02:22:34 PMSo they touched on the ants.  I would still like to hear a scientist or two discuss the fungi that infects ants, moths and certain other insects.  I like the jewel wasp turning the cockroach into a living incubator.  Would love to hear more about the parasites that make grasshoppers jump to their deaths into pools of water so that the parasitic worms can burst out of their thoracic cavity and reproduce.  Perhaps something about the parasitic worms that infect snails to force them into the open to be eaten by birds.  They could talk about another parasitic wasp that turns caterpillars into cocoon protectors through mind control.  I would even settle for liver fluke worms that control the behavior of ants...There have to be more of these situations than I know about... but it would mean a bit of research for the host.

I may be alone in this, but the idea of real parasitic mind control and behavioral influencing fungi sounds like a coast "issue."  It is real, provable, there are experts to interview and I really would find a half hour interview to be more interesting than rehashing zombies... I usually like Ian, but still can not bring myself to listen to last nights show (even if the topic of the fungi ants was brought up I have very little doubt that the science was ignored in favour of science fiction.)

Quote from: PhantasticSanShiSan on June 17, 2009, 10:17:03 PMSubway uses the highest quality processed meat, and Quiznos uses the lowest.  I don't like either.  I used to like Quiznos when it first came to Toronto, but never liked Subway.  Now, I eat at local and regional places.  Nadeau's for cold subs & Philly cheese steaks , and Sandra's for steak & cheese subs, and fried bologna subs.
Quote from: Wizard444 on June 17, 2009, 10:21:31 PMWe have two Subway franchises nearby but no Quiznos.  I patronize the Subway on occasion out of desperation of wanting a quick fix to basic hunger.  Neither appear to be culinary delights in my book.  Fried bologna sounds curious, but good.

Quote from: albrecht on March 01, 2023, 03:32:58 PMI might've been the one to mention the 'magic in the static' but if not I totally agree. Though I don't think Art's shows ever got on SW, though I recall he mentioned trying to so during one show. I could be wrong. But AM was a lot better than the stream or XM for the reasons the poster stated above. Sucks that many new vehicles don't even have AM radios in them. And in some countries even all radio being cut off. A plot, I tells you. With radio THEY don't know who, or what, people are listening or where you are.
Quote from: serenity on May 08, 2015, 03:02:38 PMYeah but forgive my nostalgia....There's magic in the static 😉
Who knows, you might have said it in an earlier post.  In any event, I agree with you and serenity.

Quote from: Wiseman on May 08, 2015, 03:55:08 PMWhen I was a kid in California, I used to sit up at night with my small Dallas Cowboy football helmet radio, and tune around the AM band searching out distant stations.  I would write down the call letters and their location in a little logbook.  I was supposed to be sleeping.  My parents never caught me.

I found out recently that this is a hobby called "AM DXing".  It's just something that I've always done.  It's how I found Art in 1996.  I was spinning the dial slowly and there he was talking about ghosts one night.  I thought, Well, that's different.  I got hooked.

Someone above posted about the "magic in the static".  I know many of you can attest to listening with AM radios to C2C in the middle of the night with the static crashes, storms going on outside, weird AM radio noises, and how it added to the greatness of the show.  Me and my girlfriend would lay there in the dark and listen.  It was an quite an experience and one I'm looking forward to again.  An Internet stream just isn't the same.

I'll be listening on shortwave.  Thanks, Art.

Quote from: Uncle Duke on August 08, 2015, 07:55:26 PMMy best friend died almost three years ago.  To the best of my recollection I've not dreamed of him since his passing,  until last week.  In the dream I remember recognizing him, and then asking why he was here.  With a bemused look, he told me he had come back to get lemons.....there were no lemons where he was. The next thing I remember was the two of us leaving a supermarket with a grocery cart full of lemons.  That's it......all I can recall.

My buddy was a bigtime beer drinker, but he did not drink liquor or mixed drinks. He also drank more coffee than anyone I've ever known, but never drank tea or iced tea.  Still not sure what to make of this, maybe I need to get on one of those dream analysis sites and see what lemons represent.
Quote from: whoozit on August 09, 2015, 06:32:58 PMI had a similar type dream.  Two years or so after a good friend died I was dreaming of a weekly poker game we used to attend.  All of the regular players were there. After the game had started my friend came walking in and asked if he could join in.  Everyone else was glad to see him and asked what had kept him.  I just looked at him with vague unease.  Of course there was an empty seat next to me and he sat down.  Normal conversation ensued while I just kept staring at him.  He must have noticed how uncomfortable I was and asked me what was wrong. I said something like "I seem to be the only one that knows you're dead".  He gave me a slow wink and picked up the last conversation we had.  I gave in at that point and enjoyed the short talk before I woke up.  It was a strange dream. I'm glad there were no lemons.

Quote from: Who on January 28, 2015, 04:47:28 PMAn old cowboy went to a bar and ordered a drink. As he sat sipping his whiskey, a young lady sat down next to him. She turned to the cowboy and asked, "Are you a real cowboy?"

He replied, "Well, I've spent my whole life on the ranch, herding horses, mending fences, and branding cattle, so I guess I am."

She said, "I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about women. When I shower, I think about women. As I watch TV, or even eat, I think about women. Everything seems to make me think about women."

The two sat sipping in silence. A short time later, a man sat down on the other side of the old cowboy and asked, "Are you a real cowboy?"

He replied, "I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian."
