It is now August.
Lammas, the first harvest, the beginning of Operation Autumn in a couple of weeks, the actual official start to Ghost Month-I don’t like summer or even August to that great of an extent, but it’s a springboard into the stuff that I do love (it’s almost ‘Weenie time!)
I’m watching American Ghost Hunter-and it’s suffering from the same problem that I have with a lot of documentary style/mockumentary style ghost films. They take themselves so seriously that it sucks the air out of everything. ‘Even as a child, watching people talk to God, someone who wasn’t there, I couldn’t understand how adults could take this seriously-and I was 7!!!’ That is not entertaining, it’s arrogance. Worse, it’s boring arrogance. It beats certain shows with their obsession with a personal war on demons, but it’s still not a good time.
I ask this every year and it’s always a fairly quiet entry (that’s fine, no guilt there). What is your relationship with ghosts? Believer, nonbeliever? Just like movies? What are your favorite ghost films or shows? Have a favorite historical haunting? Weirdness in the house?
This is your annual ghost related open thread.
