Henry broadcast live
(or at least endevoured to broadcast live)
New Castle, Pennsylvania,
though right at the top show, barely five minutes in, as I was telling the folks that I'd spent the previous few days working on the feature film
Skype kicked me out of the call
(as well as kicking out Henry).
I could not help but be amused at visualizing Henry's current frantic state trying to get back on the air...
Henry got back on and at 5:17 we started from scratch, even repeating the open theme.
Ideal Event Management
came in first, who sets up investigations, with 125 people investigating there tonight.
Thankfully the place is so extensive, they can break into different groups.
Next event will be
Friday January 13th, with the women from the
show, investigating at
Ripleys Museum of Augustine.
Once Mark was done, I got booted out of Skype again.
Henry got it working again, welcoming
Two Phat Ladies,
who read out the history of Hillview Manor, pretty much until Skype knocked out the connection again.
I made jokes with the people in the chat room, also reminding them that the next day's evening the episode of
on which I worked would air.
Henry managed to reconnect with me, notifying me that the area's wireless was what was dumping him; he has his own, and is restarting the server....
He conveyed he wouldn't record the show, and would teach me how to record it myself when we had the chance.
He got back to Laura who spoke of how the building got procurred.
Tonight's 125 would be divided into four groups, far enough away from other to reduce or negate audio contamination; the building is 63 thousand square feet.
She and David once investigated for 24 hours straight.
She reported EVPs, sounds of furniture moving while the place was empty.
She's been touched, her friend
was working on her computer, and a nearby door opened.
Laura had to scoot, and Henry described cleanliness of the halls, etc.
The building closed in 2004, and Candy Branniff first saw the building and was immediately drawn to it.
She began leasing the building, and allowing ghost investigations.
In 2012 they'll be able to set up groups; currently $500 allows up to ten people, and $50 per person over ten people.
The investigation runs from 7pm to 5am.
Candy indicated one can get EVPs right away on arrival.
They joked about newbies showing up clueless how to investigate, without flashlights, and some fleeing the place, etc.
She said how the functional mens' room is super active, voices, EVPs, and the door refusing to open.
There was one resident named
who took photos of people to raise cash for tobacco, who creates now a lot of activity.
One famous ghost is a boy named Jeffrey was reported being seen, in his room room 208, toys with which could be being played, etc.
On the third floor one can hear a one-sided conversation, the sounds of a shuffling walker, shadow figures, feeling touched, being followed, etc.
A lot of activity also is in the basement, personal effects of people who had no family to claim them.
There are two ghosts down there, one being former military they've named George; the other being a little grumpy
(simply called Grumpy),
who throws stuff at people, etc.
As for famous group,
was there for two nights for
was there for five days, and their fifth night
was their investigation.
Candy can be contacted at 724-510-5142
for investigation arrangements and such.
Henry then spoke with
Spirited Ghost Hunting,
who reported one of her favourite spots is the first floor of the west wing, generally called One North.
She frequently sees Shadow People; green laser grids are broken by Shadow People as well.
Henry stumped her with What Exactly for what is her group searching.
She does believe there is Something After this life; there's nothing left to prove to her, but apart from that, she has no idea for what she's really searching.
Henry then brought on a lady named
a first time investigator living there in Newcastle, who loves the experience; her video camera battery drained within 25 minutes in the boiler room.
She was investigating with Tango.
Henry reminded everyone that the following Saturday would be our "Halloween" show, with Craig broadcasting live from Gettysburg.
