RIP to Bruce Duensing

RIP to Bruce Duensing, a friend and fellow blogger, who has sadly passed away at the age of 64. He will be greatly missed, as will his thought-provoking contributions to the discourse about the paranormal, and many other subjects. I heartily recommend his appearance on Radio Misterioso with Greg Bishop a few months ago, which you can listen to here.

Here are his final written words, posted at his blog A Transit of Contingencies on May 22nd, in a piece titled The Voyages of the Dead:
In every fiction there is an element of truth and the same could be said by reading that statement in reverse order, and so this writer thinks on poetics as a series of observations that indirectly point to a reality not directly manifested in their sentences. 
The same may apply to us.
May he journey well to whatever lies beyond.

UFO$, Inc. - Volume 3

Whitley Strieber. So much could be said about his role as a leading figure in UFO$, Inc. given that he's been at it for so long, creating and selling memes that have taken firm root in the broader popular culture, always without a shred of evidence to back it up, in increasingly outlandish scenarios. I think his work can best be summed up with his latest escapade, which is helping to keep the Roswell Slides Scam alive in conjunction with fellow UFO$, Inc. board members, including Linda Moulton Howe.

If you want something that will make your stomach turn and your head spin at the same time then have a listen to Strieber, Howe, and slides promoter Jaime Maussan on Strieber's program recently, as they try to resurrect the slides story. It's appalling and fascinating in equal measure. You can tune in for what Strieber calls "the most astonishing Dreamland I have ever done" here.

But like a very small-scale Bilderbergers-like group, UFO$, Inc members are always willing to work with their colleagues in order to allow everyone to profit.
