Cryptids And Beer; A Marriage In Mayhem.

Some people pair wines and cheeses, others pair whisky and cigars, todays topic I will pair the beer as well as the cryptid the alcoholic drink is named after. Note: I am in no way a paid spokesman or sponsored by the beer companies that I am featuring. Please drink responsibly which includes waiting until you’re the legal age in the state, country, or territory in which you live. The first cryptid on today’s list is Batsquatch. Batsqwatch is a washington state cryptid that has b

Ready Thy Midol Ladies, Todays Topic Is About Krampus.

Sorry for the fright, Halloween is truly over. I would like to explore the darker side of Christmas with the German winter bogey named Krampus. But first, who or what is Krampus? At Britannica.com he is described as follows Krampus, in central European popular legend, a half-goat, half-demon monster that punishes misbehaving children at Christmastime. He is the devilish companion of St. Nicholas. Krampus is believed to have originated in Germany, and his name derives from the German word Kr

Twas the night before moola’s hobo Shepards pie

At the time this drops it wll be past Thanksgiving so no tales of pin the scalp on the pilgrim that was a traditional game played when I spent that holiday on the res with friends. Perhaps those in a Turkey coma will awaken from their triptifan slumbers, stretch and yawn as  they realize “Woah! I’m missing out on some nuggets of weirdness from NBM.” Well one can imagine can’t they?      So I will do a single Christmas blog this season. To tell the long and short of it, I’m not a big fan of

Chupacabra: bipedal alien menace to coyote with mange.

How did the chupacabra change from,  and then changeas  this? According to Wikipedia…. Reputed origin A five-year investigation by Benjamin Radford, documented in his 2011 book Tracking the Chupacabra, concluded that the description given by the original eyewitness in Puerto Rico, Madelyne Tolentino, was based on the creature Sil in the 1995 science-fiction horror film Species.[1] The alien creature Sil is nearly identical to Tolentino's chupacabra eyewitness account and she had s

If a clown farts does it smell funny?

So it’s that time of year where we are getting over our diabetic comas to skip over thanksgiving (for better or for worse) and go straight to the Jebus is the reason for the season. Going to look over the fact that there are more than one holiday at this time ofmyear and if you’re gonna celebrate the holy little green beans birthday at least put the holiday roughly around the time that religious scholars happen to agree upon . With the religious candles being pretty popular round these part

Necessity Of A Physical Church

In order to be a spiritual or religious person does one need to go to a physical church? Some would argue, yes, no, and something in between depending on which faith a person follows. Of course going to a physical building does have its benefits, such as remaining in touch with the religious community one might be affiliated with.    On the other hand there will be those who say that their worship of (deity here) is a private matter to not be put on display for others mockery, entertainme

Uncle Creepies Tales of Terror

“Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she had done she gave her father forty one.”       Thank you Madam Dahlia for that jaunty little rendition of a children’s rhyme involving a wood cutting implement. As for the rest welcome to the third and final installment of this years Halloween extravaganza. It’s been a journey filled with the hellish delights of sugar plumb fairies being victimized by dastardly delinquents. Prepare yourself for the final leg

Uncle Creepies Halloween Extravaganza!

The great thing about October is it starts and ends with great Holidays. October first is 1001 day and of course the 31st is Halloween. With it now being officially the spooky season, I thought I would make a variety of horror recommendations for your watching, listening, and reading pleasure.  So without further ado lets start off with the television recommendations shall we? 1) Home (X-files), the episode with the disturbing peacock family. They do everything as a family, and I mean

Swamp Gas: Alien Coverup, Alligator Love Noises, or Hill-billie Lighter Games?

Many who come to the Unexplained Mysteries website (hint, you’re here now) are at least slightly aware that swamp gas was used to explain away mysterious lights in swamps of possible ufo sightings. The first newspaper articles appeared roughly in September 1966, but my counter argument is as follows. Alligator Love Noises? Do alligators fart and if so is it a signal to other alligators that they are actively out and about? One could argue that alligators don’t fart due to their slow metabol

Heroes of the Bible

First up we have the mighty Samson. lets move on to David. How about Noah?   so according to the bible, it is filled with gay super heroes, boy wonder giant slayers, and an old dude who lured animals on to a boat. What sort os super heroes does Christianity have now?   a gay looking super hero with a p*** yellow light saber, since there aren’t any “giants” to slay that leaves us with… An old man who lures children in to a panel van.

Three Pillars Of Clown World in the U.S.A.

There are in my opinion three main pillars in the US that represents clown world to the rest of the planet. Now I know this is just my opinion and some statements can be seen as me using broad brush strokes painting an odd picture of people in general. There are exceptions to these rules or pillars and not everyone fits in the designated square hole. And now to begin. Pillar #1 - Politics. I have noticed that more and more people who might have fairly centrist views on a topic often get dro

Monkey Brain and sports

Okay for complete transparency I’m not a huge sports fan. I do enjoy catching a game or match from time to time and even have some favorite teams. Though I couldn’t name anyone on the roster unless they had their name on their jersey. As an example, I like to watch the Chelsey Premiere League and I root for whatever team is playing against Manchester United, Why you might ask? Well even a casual watcher of football like myself even I can at least name a team other than the one Beckham played on.

Tiny Terrors

So here’s my thought and I’m going to let my fellow UMsters help decide… or I just might do it regardless but still looking for feedback. My thought is creating short horror fiction and posting it here for others to maybe enjoy

Tis the season to be… wait what? Disney owns that saying? Ahhh bolloks!

So the last week or so like in years past I have been hearing a lot about the war on Christmas. Perhaps in N. Korea and China but not here in the U.S. or other democratic nations. So unless some brown shirt and Jack boot type kick your door in and steal your pagan Christmas tree, mistletoe, and other iconography at gun point then there is no war. believe it or not there are other holidays at this time of year and some predate the birth of the holy baby with ball ping hammer and finishing na

Beavers underworked due to new union rules.

With the sudden rise in membership of the woodchuck lumber tossing union the local beaver union had to include stricter guidelines in the amount of damn trees a beaver could chew down. Field reporter Timmy Titmouse has had a birds eye view on the situation and he assures us that the situation is as grim as it sounds. when asked her opinion on the subject, Sally Squirrel was quoted as follows. ”I wish this would just stop, non anthropomorphic animals are just acting nuts.” Will thi

Readers unite

So I recently joined a writing site that wasn’t associated in any way with some of the things I’ve had published. I thought that I would post stories on there that I would consider to be my seconds. They’re not quite polished or are stories that didn’t quite fit what I wanted to submit.  I have two stories in to set up kind of what I would like to do. Put stuf out there that isn’t quite my best but was still fun too write.  I will soon post the url so people can go scope them out. Stay tune

Chapstick, buttless chaps, and taxes.

So something that just chaps my hide is when people call chaps, butt less chaps (forum friendlier name but we all get it right? Okay, moving on). Why not call them frontless chaps.  Oh, oh,oh, how about moose knucle curtains. For example of moose knuckle watch ‘they live’ with rowdy roddy piper. now the usual rant about taxes, they suck, don’t like paying them. Why not use our tax money for something useful. I vote for sending Hollywood adrift in the Pacific, how bout sending Taylor Swift t

I think the swan died

Well that was a short lived btreak as some may have noticed from a few postings in the forums. Due to some real life crap that goes on I was pretty messed up for a bit.  I won’t go in to it so don’t ask but some RL friends recommended that I continue to come around. so with that being said i have something in common with Arnold because I like him came back. Well minus the cyborg body that is.

My swan song

So a couple weeks ago I said I was going to take a break from the internet.  Well I had some reasons for this that I just won’t get in too.  So anyway this will be my final post here at UM so I can put things in order.  Before anyone jumps the gun and thinks the absolute worst, no I’m not going to jail, and I am Not going to hurt myself.  I just have far too many things on my plate at the moment to be coming and posting here.  Thanks to all the people that I have become friends with here, I will

What’s so hard about about this whole thing?

So I use a music streaming site, I won’t name it but it’s been around a while and yes it is a legal streaming site. I enjoy a very wide variety of music that includes classical (Bach, Motzart, Beetoven etc), 80’s butt rock (don’t ask), 60’s and 70’s rock, Blues, chinese opera, dubstep, industrial, goth, etc. Now the problem is on every channel but one they have recommendations based on the artists I have choosen fairley well. They might be songs that I don’t necessarily like but based on th

Are you done yet? Wake me when it’s over.

So I decided to take a wee break as opposed to a pee break and drop on in for brain shake.  So I have been working on a writing project for the last (20+ years now) and I am finally happy with the way it’s turning out. Sometimes it drives me bonkers when I get hyper critical about whatever project I am working on.  It’s not so much about being worried about what others think because theit will always be people who don’t like your expression on any sort of art form. other times I can pop out

Remembering the safe word/phrase

I have a super power.  That’s right a bonafide super power, and some people can’t stand it.  Please let me explain. I was out having a bite at a local sub sandwich shop and I was chating with one of the employees as I am a semi regular customer. Anyway i said something fairly snarky and another customer laughed as the were sucking down a soda. Needless to say but yep it came back pout the nose. The employee asked if they were okay etc and they said ya but went into the bathroom to clean up
