Scary Sounds

We all listen to the radio right? Everyone has their favorite type of music or listening preference. I have gone through stages where I will listen to talk radio exclusively for years. Art Bell from Pahrump, Nevada has given me some of the best listening memories of my life.

One stage in my life,I would drop off newspapers to carriers in the wee hours of the morning. Art Bell and his show Coast to Coast AM, kept me company as he gave creepy reports from area 51 and the aliens who were out to get us, or government conspiracies, chupacabra sightings, and my favorite....ghost stories.

Scene: I was in a remote farm location out north of Payson, UT. It is quiet and pitch black except for my headlights on my truck. The next stop is a split level home, located in the middle of nowhere, I have never been to this stop before, and I noticed there were large hedges on either side of the drive way. On the radio is a creepy ghost story about a haunted school, that neighbors claim the attic lights flicker on and off and they can hear high pitched children's voices singing in the middle of the night.

I am going around the front of the truck feeling creeped out from the dead kiddie ghosts, and I am opening the van's side doors to unload and from over my back, behind the hedges comes the loudest horse whinny I have ever heard in my life "Neeeiiigghhhh!!!!!".....I nearly peed myself on the spot.

Art also used to play the sound from the Siberian hole researchers dug in the 1960's. They put a microphone down the 22 mile long hole and instead of hearing seismic sounds of geological plates moving, they heard the sounds of screaming. They claim it was the hole to hell. Sometimes Art would play it at random, and it used to scare me to death!!! Here is a fun version of it I found on YouTube

Any way, the reason I write about this, my whole purpose of this post is to laugh at an email a friend sent me. It was one of those random thoughts emails where men or women with too much time leave their very observant
Random Thoughts of the Day: Examples

1. More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think
about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own
story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize
you're wrong.

3. I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks
when they've invented the lighter?

The kicker is this...

5. That's enough, Nickelback.

( Now you older folks won't understand this part)
Nickleback is the joke of the Pop/Alternative Rock world. THEY are so bad. They care nothing about their music, and they are ready for the grave. They make really scary sounds. I kind of got off on a tangent with my other scary sounds examples and this is just a last moment post anyway. Write back if you hate Nickleback.

We don't hate them but Bill thinks they sound like they are going #2 and feeling constipated when they sing!!!
