Northumberland Ghostly Hitch-hiker ?

Perched on the side of a rural road, a ‘phantom hitchhiker’ gave pals Rob Davies and Chris Felton a spooky surprise.

The ghostly sight of a man all in beige seeking a lift near Belsay in Northumberland left the Gateshead radio presenters in for a sleepless night.

The pair claim the man was dressed in RAF gear as he emerged late at night – and they have since discovered that he was stood close to where an air force jet crashed during the Second World War.

Rob, from Whickham, and Chris, from Birtley, had been out recording a piece on the anniversary of the Battle of Otterburn and were heading home along the A696 just after 11.30pm on Wednesday when they spotted the unusual figure.

Rob, 27, said: “We saw a man standing at the side of the road. We both actually jumped at first because we didn’t see him until very late.

“He was dressed in a beige colour from head to toe. He was sticking his arm out for a lift, but we could not stop in time due to being at 60mph.”

Rob claims the man’s eyes did not reflect the car’s lights and added: “Chris, who was driving, decided to turn around for him but we both agreed that he looked a bit odd. We were two miles north of the nearest village and there was nothing for miles.

“We said we would pick him up if he was real and just make sure he was dropped at the nearest village, and joked he might be a phantom hitchhiker.

“I started filming on my iPhone as it seemed a bit odd. We couldn’t remember how far back he was, but we saw him again and slowed.

“He was dressed in what I can only describe as RAF gear and was holding something under his arm, which looked like a helmet or some kind of bag.

“We had to turn again so we could pick him up.”

However, when they did so…

Chinese ‘paranormalist’ arrested for exorcising a ‘haunted vagina’ with his penis

A MAN who claimed he could could use his penis to rid a woman of ghosts that had taken up residence in her vagina, was arrested in China after performing the “sexorcism” for which he charged $3,000.

Huang Jianjun was arrested in the Guangdong Province after he convinced A Xin that he could remove evil spirits from her vagina by having sexual intercourse. A day later, Xin reported the incident to the police, and Jianjun was promptly arrested.ghost

The victim allegedly came to the self-styled “ghost hunter” because she needed help seducing her boss who she had a crush on.

Xin, an employee of a spice shop was so infatuated with her boss that she sought Jianjun’s help to seduce her employer. Jianjun said could help the two fall in love by performing an exorcism.

The pair allegedly met in a hotel room where Xin was asked strip naked. Jianjun then convinced Xin that he needed to have sex with her and that it was the only way to get rid of the evil spirits. He caimed his dick would banish the vaginal squatters who were preventing Xin and her boss from falling in love.

Jianjun insists that he never had sex with the Xin and that he can’t get an erection due to diabetes. He is currently in jail awaiting trial in Guangzhou.

In 1970 he founded The Modern Lovers, an influential proto-punk band. Since the mid-1970s, Richman has worked either solo or with low-key, generally acoustic, backing.

1953 – Django Reinhardt died. Pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composer, often regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and is the first important European jazz musician who made major contributions to the development of the idiom.

Using only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos (his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed after an injury in a fire), Reinhardt invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called ‘hot’ jazz guitar) that has since become a living musical tradition within French gypsy culture.

With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as “one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.”

1647 – A phantom battle was seen in the skies over Northamptonshire. It was believed to be an action replay of a battle fought eight months earlier, and it continued to appear sporadically for the next two weeks.

FRANKENSTEIN SOUND LAB – Land Of Ghosts

 

Just to let you know that the entire Life Is Harsh In The Land Of Ghosts Theme Park album is now available for free listen and / or download from the Malice In Sunderland website-

http://maliceinsunderland.weebly.com/land-of-ghosts.html

This was the third FSL album, recorded on 4-track cassette and largely composed using chance operations – throwing dice mainly. It’s a kind of concept album, built around the idea of a weird and rather lethal theme park –

 

Handily situated just off of Junction 13 of the A666, The Land Of Ghosts Theme Park is the perfect day out for all the family.

The kids will love the antics of the Killer Clowns…but make sure they dont get too close. Although our Rapid Response Unit can usually recover bodies before they get too badly mutilated, there is an extra charge for this service.

Gasp at the Accidental Death Of A Vampire Hunter, impaled on his own stake, drop into the seance room and eavesdrop on The Unquiet Dead or thrill to the tales of the Brain In A Jar.

Then on for a meal at our Plague Pit restaurant, or perhaps a drink or two in the Hand Of Glory bar – you’ll probably need one !

You’ll have so much fun that you wont want to ever go home again.

And if you haven’t left the park by dusk, you may not be able to.

Ever.

We’ve actually had several requests for infomation about the location of the Land Of Ghosts….  listen up, folks – it’s not real. It doesn’t exist.

But maybe it will one day…
