As The Paranormal Turns…

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of emails and Facebook PMs from people who tell me they are being threatened, warned off, and “unfriended” from Facebook for being involved in the “Hotel Camarillo” project. Make no mistake, there is a lot of jealousy swirling around this documentary. All of it completely necessary, as we’ve reached out to even the most distasteful Paranormal Pariahs, in an effort to include all investigators who have walked Camarillo’s abandoned halls capturing evidence.

Fortunately,”Hotel Camarillo” currently has nothing but the best in the paranormal field participating. The vapid will not be missed.

Here is one such email that I received. The sender asked me to eliminate their name, but gave me permission to use this in the blog to illustrate the pettiness going on. Below is the original comment in reaction to my “The Thick Plottens…” blog:,p>

“Oh WOW! I couldn’t help but start to roll my eyes a little at Louis’ claims! WE have ALL investigated out there at one time or another. We have all paid our “dues” to be there and if he chooses to be nasty about the film then guess what? That is HIS loss and he will regret it one day! He cannot sue Frank for what evidence Frank uses, a judge would just throw out the case! It is just too bad that Louis can’t get over himself, or the issues he bears long enough to be a part of the film since he did put a lot of time in investigating as lot of us have over the years. It should be about educating the public about what CSUCI once was and still in many ways remains. I just wouldn’t pay any attention to anyone that is negative about the documentary.”

The emails follow:

“I guess I cannot speak my mind. I was threatened by withheld for posting how I felt about him. (Here’s what he wrote:)

… Even before you wrote this, I found your attempt to friend me on Facebook quite amusing… to actually think I’d accept a friend request – not out of any actual desire to interact with me – but instead to be a fly on the wall.

…. I DO also have a series of several damning photos of you taking bong hits of marijuana in one of the hallways – so much for “educating the public about what CSCUI one was…” (whatever the hell that means). But alas, I’ve keep those little inconvenient truths under wraps… No negativity – or any feelings whatsoever – for individuals I’m neither emotionally invested in, nor whom I respect. These people are as dead to me as the Spirits they claim exist there.

Friend Request Denied.

So I get accused of being a spy and doing bong hits at CSUCI! lol

I told him I do not hide that I once smoked pot at CSUCI, but at least get it right, it was not a bong, it was a pipe! What a jerk! I told him I’m a medical marijuana patient. I happened to be very sick that day and the person I was with, whom I trusted and asked if they even minded if I smoked, did a sneaky thing to me and snapped photo’s of me smoking! Then months later emailed them to people obviously trying to make me out to be a bad person. I’m over it and I do not hold negativity toward that any longer. He talks as if he took photo’s of me himself, lol!

He is obviously still very bitter about the past and won’t let it go! I tried to explain to him I didn’t write what I wrote to attack him. I was trying to say, why hold onto the past when something awesome like your documentary is happening, ya know? I told him I feel sorry for him that he feels I had bad intentions toward him. Oh well…

Oh and here is the last message he sent me:

Truth… You are an acquaintance at BEST – irrelevant in my lived experience… Ergo, your “opinions” as well as your revisionist historical account of someone who threw you under the bus are rendered mute.(sic) Keep defending folks that think your cray cray. Some of whom only live mere miles from you.

Editor’s Note: The proper phrase uses the word “moot”; those that bolster their self importance by picking phrases out of a Thesaurus usually won’t know that.

…and then he actually blocked me after that message! Good lord! Someone is being quite dramatic!

As The Paranormal Turns…

Booksigning Event

Last Sunday after the investigation the night before, I was in Glendale again, in the same book store I first met the Psy-Paranormal team.
 
Tracey had contacted me about filming a book signing with Kristin and author EstherLeon Schwartz , a child Holocaust survivor who has written a memoir titled, “Tears of Stone and my Deal with God”. Kristin is the author of  The Leprechauns and the Cauldron  a fairy tale which she has based the main character on her teen age daughter, Chelsea. The two authors teamed up for an event titled, “Two Authors, One Message”, which is in support of Feed the Children, a non-profit relief organization that delivers food, water, and medicine to children worldwide. 
 
Tracey said this would be a great opportunity, and I readily agreed. I was lucky to contact the group when I did, so that I could incluse this eent in the documentary. EstherLeon gave her presentation first, then Kristin introduced Chelsea, who read the first chapter of  The Leprechauns and the Cauldron for the audience. Kristin had rewritten the chapter in the first person, so Chelsea could present it as a tale she was relating to the audience. 
 

 This was very different than the main focus of the documentary, but the more “behind the scenes” segments I can capture from all participants will enchance the film considerably. At the end of the presentation, I bought both authors’ books, and had them signed. I look forward to reading them when I get a spare moment away from digitizing video from last Saturday’s case. 

Estherleon will be at this year’s Los Angeles Times Festival of Books  at the UCLA campus April 24th and 25th. Kristin updates her Myspace page  with booksignings frequently.
