Is there room in the Para/Crypto/Fortean world for a gun-toting, paranoid, bipolar, opinionated bastard? A lonely romantic in search of his lost soul? A knight, Samurai, gunslinger, born in the wrong century? A self-destructive, doom-driven survivor seeking redemption? A heavy drinking gonzo outlaw cryptozoologist whose ego is exceeded only by his libido?
No, there isn't. That's why I'm here...

Raising Nessie (pt. 1)

Hmmm... Nessie a ghost? That's a new one on me. Read the following article from "Highland News", but hold off on passing judgement just yet!

A DRAMATIC event which will see hundreds of witches, clairvoyance experts and psychics gather together around the shores of Loch Ness in a bid to make contact with Nessie will take place next month.
The High Priest of British White Witches, Kevin Carlyton - who calls himself "The Official Protector of Loch Ness and the Loch Ness Creature" - is organising the one-off psychic gathering and is hoping to prove the monster is in fact a ghost.
The white witch, who claims to have thwarted the plans of "monster hunter" Jan Sundberg from Sweden coming to Loch Ness to attempt to capture Nessie a few years ago, believes the monster will never be caught, because she's not actually alive.
Kevin explained: "The creature is a ghost from a bygone era and its image has been captured by the surrounding landscape. On certain weather conditions, particularly very warm or thunderous with a lot of static in the air, images of the creature are 'replayed' and people who are slightly psychic see the creature as if it is here now."
Now the white witch hopes to prove his point about the monster, which drums up hundreds of thousands of pounds in tourism business every year for the area, by organising the coming together for those who have psychic abilities.
He said: "I predict there will be at least 200 people present at the event. I've only mentioned a small bit about the event on my website and the interest so far has been phenomenal.
"I've had psychics from all over the country, and was even speaking to someone on the phone from New Zealand who plans to incorporate the event into their trip to England next month.
"It's going to be quite an event. I'm hoping it will go ahead around June 21, but I still need to confirm the actual date.
"Computer programmer Mikko Takala will be filming the event and it's hoped it will be broadcast live on - so hopefully Nessie won't be camera shy!"
And for those who may be left disappointed at the news that the monster is a ghost have been re-assured by Kevin.
He said: "Everyone has psychic ability in them somewhere and some people will be able to still see Nessie."

Now, some of the "flesh-n-blooders" or "plessiosaur" crowd are surely shaking their heads.
But, if you know me, you know there's more to this entry than a simple post about one article.
Stay tuned for the next installment. It might make you wonder, it might make you think twice before you pass judgement on our friendly white witch here.
