Haunted Walt Disney World

If you were a Ghost and could haunt anywhere in the world, wouldn't you pick Walt Disney World in Florida. After working there for seven years, I learned a lot about the Afterlife of the Disney Parks. Let's take a vacation to some of the haunted locations that Mickey and his ghostly friends still enjoy long after the light of life has gone dark.

Haunted Apartment For Rent

If you are looking for an apartment to rent, you may want to watch this Vlog before you sign that paperwork. It was the year 2000 and I had just moved to St. Petersburg, Florida and had this neat 1950's apartment. Little did I know that along with it being full furnished, it has some very active Ghosts that were going to be my roommates. Here is my haunted tales of living with three ghost in a one bedroom apartment.

Growing Up Haunted

One of the most common questions I am asked when people find out about my Paranormal hobby, is "How did you get started in this".  Well, I am not going to tell you in this description, you are going to have to watch today's Bear With Me and find you. Hope this doesn't scare you too much.

Real Ghost Stories Online Pod Cast

Welcome to one of my latest addictions! I recently discovered Real Ghost Stories Online and cannot get enough of this great Pod Cast. Hosted by Tony and Jenny Brueski, RGSO gives a judgement free space for those who have have had encounters with the Paranormal to tell their stories. Think of it as, sitting around a campfire with your closest friends telling ghost stories. After one show, you will become a paranormal junkie.

Pixels Movie Review

Pixels is the story were the "losers" becomes the "winners"....kind of. Adam Sandler leads a comedy cast of actors on a lame and often boring adventure to save the world from aliens that have taken the form of 1980's video arcade game characters. What had the potential of being something original ends up being as lifeless as the Arcade industry. I usually try to go for a positive spin on my reviews, not this time.

WWF Trading Cards 1991

In the late 80's, I would spend my Saturday afternoons screaming at the television screen in my parent's bedroom helping Hulk Hogan, The Junkyard Dog and Jake The Snake prance around the ring during WWF Hour. Looking back, I think it was more that they were semi-naked guys rolling around with each other that had me screaming. On today's Throwback Thursday, we are returning to 1991 with some World Wrestling Federation collectible cards! So get oiled up Cublets!

Marvel's Ant-Man Movie Review (Spoilers)

Marvel's Ant-Man is the 12th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A lot was said before and during the production of this movie that Ant-Man was going to be the first Marvel Bomb. Nope, not even close. Ant-Man is just fun in every way. The acting, special effects and story line come together beautifully. Check out my thoughts and reactions to this tiny movie that has a big heart.

When Friendships Spoil?

We are about half way through the year and it is around this time that I reflect upon my relationships with other. I think of friendships a lot like cooking. The ingredients you put into the friendship can make it the best meal ever but sometimes it can end in food poisoning. On today's Bear With Me, I sit down with my thought and camera to get my thoughts out of my head about what Friendship means.

Gay Man VS. The Color Pink

I have always hated the color Pink and recently that has been an internal conversation I have been having with myself. Is it because I am a Gay Man and Pink is often thought of as a feminine color? Possibly. The Pink Triangle, which was once used to identify Gay Men in WWII is now source of empowerment for many in the LGBTI Community. So what is my problem with this color? I take a few minutes to look reflect upon my dislike for the color Pink and where that comes from.

Marriage VS. The Clerk's Office

Why does someone always have to be a jerk when it comes to Love? There have been reports of some white women refusing to issue marriage certificates to LGBT couples. One has even gone so far as to resign from her job (no lose there) while others have issued public statements that they wont do their jobs because of religious reasons. Here are my thoughts on who should replace these lovely ladies of the Clerk's office.
