a call to y'all...!

okay...

as i mentioned yesterday, with things really gearing up with the perhapanauts and a summer full of convention schedules and outside projects ahead, i'm looking to hedge my bets a little in regards to this blog.
it's been very important to me to make sure that i get a new post up here on the blog every monday, wednesday, and friday, and i've done a pretty good job of it for the past year or so. our little group here--our community, family, of "perhapa-pals", has come to mean a lot to me. it thrills me that you stop by here to read this on a regular basis and it means even more when you take the time to comment and join in and be a part of the gang! when a little dialogue or even a group discussion appears in the comments section--that's just too cool...!

so, what to do with so much suddenly on my plate and less time to blog...? well, with a wonderfully witty and creative family like this, the answer is obvious...

special guest blogs!!

we've had them here before--my good pal, scott weinstein, has graciously covered for me from time to time (with some well-researched and beautifully written posts that put me to shame, i might add...). both alison and brian have written their own perhapanauts stories/comics that have been featured here on the blog. and many of you have shared accounts of your own strange and unexplained experiences...

so i'm putting the call out to anyone and everyone within the sound of my voice! what do you think? got a subject you'd like to cover? a story you'd like to tell? a discussion you'd like to get started?

send 'em in! let me know! you too could be a guest blogger here on the world-famous perhapa-blog!

my only request is that we keep them to our usual topics; the paranormal, the unexplained, the just plain weird. comics, movies, tv, books! anything and everything having to do with pop-culture! got a funny or scary story you'd like to tell? a news report that you think the group would find fascinating? wanna try your hand at creating your own "five for friday"? try it! i guarantee you'll have fun!
also, and most importantly, you'll be helping me out, giving me a bit of a break while we work to get the perhapanauts together each month...

if you're interested,please let me know!
you can 'e' me at

todd@perhapanauts.com

thanks!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

so, here's something that freaked me out...

bizarre deaths always freak me out. i don't know why they should freak me out any more than a "regular" death...i mean, when it's your time, it's your time, right?. not to be too morbid or anything (and maybe i've already crossed that line...), but the subject of dying thoughts has always fascinated me. in a "natural" death, the process can be slow and the person have time to ease into that final sleep or, depending on what you believe, into the next, new experience. i guess we all kinda hope for that.
with a sudden death or accidental death, a person isn't afforded that opportunity. we have no time to get used to the idea (and, yes, many paranormal investigators believe that ghosts are, in most cases, the spirits of people who don't yet know that they're dead)
but a bizarre death...
when a person is killed in such a strange, freak accident...
late last night, while checking my e-mails, i checked out yahoo's most e-mailed pictures, always an interesting place for photos. the first seven were of this--an eagle ray--a larger member of the ray family--that had flipped itself up into a boat and stab a woman with it's barb, killing her.

my condolences to the family, of course. how very sad. this is truly a tragedy.
but a bizarre tragedy.

i mean, really, what do you think? did that just happen? did i just get stabbed by a manta ray? did that thing just sail out of the water and kill me?

until steve irwin's very similar death, i didn't even know this was possible...

Hey Todd!

interesting 5FF.... but I'm gonna take a guess and say it's a trick question, because I'm quite sure that the answers to numbers 3 and 4 are both Gene Hackman.... so I'm gonna say that the answers to 1 and 2 are also Gene Hackman... and the Seuss books that I can name are...

a. Green Eggs and Ham
b. If I Ran the Circus
c. Horton Hears a Who
d. ???
e. ???

How's that?

Brian said...

I'll have to put my thinking cap on and see if I can come up with a column.

As for the ray story, what I heard on the news this morning was a little different, but not based on any report from the coroner. The story is that the ray hit the poor woman in the face, knocking her over and causing her head to hit the side of the boat with her death being attributed to striking her head while falling.

Ok, on to five for Friday.

1. ?

2. ?

3. Gene Hackman

4. Gene Hackman (?)

5.

a. Green Eggs and Ham

b. ?

c. Horton Hears a Who (I wonder, is that the same Whoville from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" ?)

d. ?

e. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (?)

Todd-
So much info to process.

The stingray story was in the local news here in Miami, FL last night(it happened in the keys). Although at the time, the story is the ray jumped into the boat slamming into the lady, killing both on impact.
A kamikazee ray?
They were saying that it didn't look like it stung the lady, but were going to check after the autopsy.

for the 5er:
4. Gene Hackman ?
5a Green Eggs & Ham (I do not like them, Sam I am)
5c Horton Hatches an Egg.
(same Horton from "... hears a who")
That's all I've got.

Hey Brian, I believe it is the same Whoville (Imagine that whole Grinch story taking place inside that dust speck).

Have a great weekend averyone :o)

Since I teach elementary school, I think I have a height restricted name phobia - can't remember anyone's name if they're over 4 feet tall and I'm sure that the person for 1 through 4 is taller than that but I think I know Dr. Seuss - Here's my shot at number 5.

a. Green Eggs and Ham
b. And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street
c. Horton Hatches an Egg
d. The 5OO Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins
e. McElligot's Pool

checked back over the original caption on the yahoo photos regarding the eagle ray and--as brian corrected, they were a bit misleading...
here's a better source, Los Angeles Times

EAGLE RAY LEAPS, KILLS BOATER IN FLORIDA

The 55-year-old Michigan woman is believed to have died instantly from the impact when the ray hit her head.
By Mike Clary, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
March 21, 2008
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- A vacationer from Michigan out for a family boat ride in the Florida Keys died Thursday when a 75-pound spotted eagle ray flew out of the water and struck her in the head.

Judy Kay Zagorski, 55, is believed to have been killed by blunt force trauma, according to Jorge Pino, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

"Out of nowhere, a spotted eagle ray pops up in front of the boat and collides with the victim," who was standing at the bow, said Pino. The ray was about 5 to 6 feet wide, he said.

"There was nothing anybody could have done in that situation. They were just out having a good time. It's a sad, sad situation."

The accident happened about 10 a.m. as Zagorski's father, Virgil Bouck, 88, was driving the 25-foot boat about 25 mph through Vaca Cut toward the open Atlantic Ocean, Pino said. Investigators think Zagorski and the ray died instantly from the impact, according to Pino.

Also aboard were Zagorski's mother and sister, Pino said. Zagorski's family called 911 as Bouck pulled up to a dock at a house along the waterway, he said.

sad.
