First and foremost, I will start by saying that I love horror films, ghost stories and any excuse to scare the bejesus out of myself. I commonly find myself locking all doors and windows before I go to bed, checking under my bed for serial killers and half-expecting to find Norman Bates behind my shower curtain. With that said, this story about a local news crew who was harassed by demons while visiting a local haunted home has “oh hell no” written all over it. Scary stories are fine and dandy when they’re in the movies, but as soon as my own home turns into the Devil’s playground, I am out. Not so much for these people… Keep reading »
It’s Halloween and everyone is gearing up with their spookiest stories. Maybe you’ve never experienced a bonafide haunting, but there might be a ghost in your midst and it could be wreaking more havoc than you’d imagine. We’re talking about the deep, dark issues that haunt your relationship — the kind that pop up and scare the crap out of you and your partner on an otherwise uneventful Tuesday evening.

Ke$ha is a crazy special flower isn’t she? The pop singer and reality TV star stopped by “Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel” last night to promote the new season of her MTV show and was very candid about her close encounters with the third kind. Now, we were already privy to the knowledge that Ke$ha has gotten down and dirty with a ghost before — the experience even inspired her song “Supernatural” — but now it seems things have taken a more … invasive turn. See, a ghost is now haunting her vagina, like, according to her hypnotherapist, she has dead people inside her, primarily in the region of her ladyparts it seems. That’s one way to explain a dry spell. “Yeah, it’s been awhile since I got laid, but the ghoul in my twat is kind of a turnoff, go figure.”
Let me be clear: this house wasn’t in any way meant to be spooky. Nor was it Halloween. Even worse, my host didn’t forewarn me that there might be anything even vaguely strange about his place. The only thing he did mention, while unzipping my skirt, was that he was planning to put in an outdoor jacuzzi, just to enhance the whole ’70s swinger vibe he was going for.
I was in the middle of a “fuck tour” of Manhattan: a long weekend that literally started with an orgy at my friend’s place and continued as I met up with other people. My friend, being a fixture in the NYC sex scene for years, had a very extensive contact list of people who were willing to help the new girl get as many notches on her bedpost as possible. After a sex-starved stint working as a temp in a stuffy office, I was ready to let loose. The boy who I later discovered had a haunted house, went by the self-appointed name “Byron,” and that was the only name I knew him by. He was tall and skinny with a British accent. That was enough for me to want to spend some more private time with him.
Byron had a nice apartment, full of warm golden light and a well-stocked bar, which I drank only one glass of wine from, refusing a second. Half of the frisson of these casual encounters was the tiny lick of fear at the base of my spine that came from a lifetime of stranger-danger stories, and as a precaution, I always tried to remain as alert as possible. Little did I know, I was scared of the wrong thing. Keep reading »
Dating must be so much easier when you’re a ghost. No more worrying about what to wear (nothing!), who picks up the tab (you don’t eat!) or whether or not he’ll come back to your place (you don’t have one!). Your biggest concern when you’re a dead dater is what decade your date passed in and if he will get your cultural references. Or, I guess it could be problematic if he’s obsessed with reconnecting with his still-living soul mate like Patrick Swayze in “Ghost.” So sexy, but so unavailable.
