Shinn House (8/8/14): SB7 in the Basement

While in the basement, my group did a session with the SB7 spirit box. Here's a few possible intelligent responses using the SB7. Clip 1: Michele asked the spirits to say her nickname. Since I don't know what her nickname is, I can't say if the SB7 said it. I do know that I can hear, "Bring someone in" from the SB7. There's also several EVPs in this clip. Michele will have to let me know if the spirits did say her name! Clip 2: Chris asks, "Do you have the ability to manifest Read more [...]

Shinn House (8/8/14): In the Basement

The basement was a very active location. Most of the spirit activity came in the form of being touched and that odd sensation of feeling cobwebs on us. Only the women reported being touched--and it wasn't by anyone human. I was touched several times, including something that tugged on the sleeve of my shirt. Pam and I both felt someone breathe on us several times while in the basement. There was also a "tingly" spot in one of the basement corners. Several of us felt this spot to be energized, Read more [...]

Shinn House (8/8/14): On the Second Floor

Clip 1: We were in Millicent's room and listening to the playback of a quick EVP session. You'll hear Chris ask on the recording, "Did somebody touch my elbow?" This is followed by me saying, "It's 'something you'" as we try to figure out what a disembodied voice said before Chris asked her question. Right after I say this, a disembodied male voice says, "Yeah." Chris jokingly says the disembodied voice was probably saying "F--- you." This makes us laugh. Surprised, Jim says, "What?" Read more [...]

Shinn House (8/8/14): Florence’s Room

My group decided to split up into smaller groups of 2. The pairs went off and investigated the other rooms on the 2nd floor for a few minutes. Chris and I went into Florence's room. Clip 1: You'll hear me say, "...the last 2 or 3 times you have, ahh, said something while we've been talking." You will hear human voices in the background talking; these were people who were visiting the caretaker who lives onsite. At the 7 second mark, in the middle of the human conversation, a disembodied Read more [...]

Shinn House (8/8/14): Millicent’s Room

These were recorded in Millicent's Room on the 2nd floor. Clip 1: A woman in our group says, "Yeah. Why not?" A male disembodied voice says something right after this and before she continues saying, "I can do...." Can you make out what's being said? Clip 2: In this clip, you'll hear Michelle speaking and Jim who says, "Hmm." At the 2 second mark, a disembodied male voice says something. Can you make out what's being said? Clip 3: I like to take trigger objects Read more [...]

Shinn House (8/8/14): The Bamboo Room

These were recorded in the Bamboo Room. Clip 1: In this clip, you'll hear the drone of an airplane flying overhead in the background. I ask, "I'm sitting on a mat on the floor. What is it made of?" There is a response at the 4 second mark. Can you make it out? I've amplified this part of the clip so hopefully you'll be able to hear the response. (And, just for the record, the voice was right!) Clip 2: Jim says, "...this way and we should....." Right after he pauses, a voice Read more [...]

Train Depot (3/20/15): From Inside the Crawl Space

These clips were recorded on Olympus 2, my other DVR. I'd placed this DVR in the crawl space when we started the investigation in the attic. I left it there as we moved on to other areas of the depot. A total of approximately 3 hours of time was recorded. These are highlights of the sounds heard in the crawl space during these 3 hours. It should be noted that people were not allowed inside the crawl space, although we could set up equipment (like DVRs) in it. Clip 1: Laura J has just opened Read more [...]

Train Depot (3/20/15): Miscellaneous Inside Locations

This is a hodge-podge of clips recorded from different parts of the depot. Clip 1: During the investigation, the group took a quick break in the front office. You'll hear Laura J say, "What's with that flashlight outside? Oh, it's a car light." As Laura finishes talking, listen for the whispered male voice. I can't make out what it's saying and it doesn't sound like either the male docent or Quentin, the only 2 men on site that night. Can you make out what this voice is saying? Clip Read more [...]

Train Depot (3/20/15): Before the Investigation Started

These clips were recorded during the set-up period before the investigation started. The group was in the front office, which is where the docents stayed during our investigation. Clip 1: In this clip, you'll hear Laura J in the background reporting that she smells something. She is trying to determine if it is a phantom scent that could be associated with the depot. At 5 seconds, I can hear a male voice say, "Yep," perhaps in response to Laura J reporting a possible phantom scent. You'll Read more [...]

Train Depot (3/20/15): “And Let Me Repeat….”

All of these clips were recorded in the front office at the end of the investigation. Clip 1: You hear me ask, "So, for this trip, what is your final destination?" You'll hear the sound of the clock in the office ticking in the background and, at the 5 second mark, a voice that says, "I know." I've amplified this part of the clip. On first listen, you will focus on the ticking sound. Continue listening to the clip to let yourself become accustomed to the rhythm of the clock; when Read more [...]
