Same Ghost Time, Same Ghost Channel...

I have decided to unleash my entrepreneurial spirit and start a cable channel of my own. And, I might add, it's about time.

Most days, you can turn on your idiot box, channel surf a little, and find SOME show about paranormal-something-or-other. But lately, I am surprised when I've looked and couldn't find one.

I think the problem is that they're dispersed across too many different channels. You can find Ghost Hunters on Sci-Fi, Most Haunted* on the Travel channel, Psychic Investigators on Biography, and a new one- Haunting Evidence on Court TV... and so on. Hey, even The Medium runs repeats on Lifetime (LIFETIME???!?!? What does that have to do with the show?). But I digress. Anyway, around Halloween, the frequency of such shows increases tenfold.

Wouldn't it make MUCH more sense to just have a single channel that would run all these shows all day long? I think so.

So, I'll set it ALL up.** I just need one of you (or many of you... I'm not picky) to finance it for me. 'Kay? Cool.

Even if you don't believe in ghosts or the like, think of all the freaks (like me) who will watch this channel. Think of the advertisers who will jump on board. Think of all the NEW products that will come of this.

Why does this interest me so much? I don't think I've ever had a true paranormal experience, other than a couple of freaky dreams (I'll save those for later postings). I lived in a couple of really old houses before, and I always felt uncomfortable in certain parts of those houses... but I think it was just my own little paranoia. Nothing substantial.

Do any of you have good ghost stories? goldennib posted one of her recent experiences. But I want to hear more stories!! You can either add them to my comments, or post your own. Just let me know when you do. I find this subject utterly fascinating!

So, there. That's your assignment. :-)

*Okay, so this one is definitely NOT my favorite. I believe in paranormal stuff, but this show is even a little too hokey for me. When the 'medium' guy (I'm leaving his name out purposefully) starts channeling and allowing a spirit to speak through him, it looks SOOOOO phoney. If he were ever to prove this to me, then I might think differently.

**Well, do I really have the initiative to do this? Sure. If someone could come up with the moolah and guarantee that I wouldn't lose any money in the deal? Absolutely. Is it more likely that I just want to read some really good stories from all of you? Could be.

How many channels do you have on cable over there? Does everyone have cable? It seems that they do in America. It's not that common over here. I mean it's not uncommon to have cable, but none of my friends have it, it's no big deal here, all of the popular shows are on free to air anyway. We get 5 channels free to air, and I watch enough tv as it is!

off=topic, but i just read your last post and was wondering if you had seen Black Books. it's a very funny show about a guy that runs his own shabby, 'yea olde library' style book store. very, very funny. very.

ludi: I have digital cable, so I have over 300 channels. Not that I watch them all... but we could easily become couch potatoes if we didn't regulate the amount of tv we watch.

wire: I'll have to look for that!

top psychic: I'm not joking... I take all this pretty seriously. And if you're spamming me, please stop.

*sniff sniff*

i smell spam.

don't call me MA'AM said...

ewww, wire. spam is stinky.

-R- said...

No ghost stories here (thank goodness)!

wire said...

Stinky, yes, yet not the scariest tinned meat i've seen. That award goes to "Camp Pie" (even the name is fairly terrifying)! It's a whopping %70 "meat product" (no mention of what sort of meat... or what sort of product for that matter) and has a nice, even consistency and probably spreads well (just like real meat should!). Oh, and its bright pink.

"Camp Pie! Its not just a food, its a threat to our very existence!"

don't call me MA'AM said...

-r-: rats. So far, I'm coming up with a big nada here.

wire: I'll keep you in mind the next time I post about canned meat. ;-)
