“The tormenter called the Gillispies’ home phone. When Ron picked up, the caller declared he was observing the Gillispie house . Ron, furious, hung up and raced out the door with the intention of confronting him. Within minutes, he was speeding away in his truck. And he’d brought along a gun. And then a few hours later, Ron Gillispie was found dead behind the wheel.”
Dan has two out of the ordinary tales this week. He first shares with us the story of the Circleville Letters. A bizarre occurrence of random people who are all connected in some way, receiving letters from an anonymous sender. Much like The Watcher, we don’t really know what’s going on. Is it paranormal or just some creep, trying to wreak havoc? Next up, five young men disappeared in north central California after attending a college basketball game, and why they went to where some of their remains would later be found is still a mystery. Crazy twist at the end of that story that makes it real, real creepy. Lynze has some great stories for us too! Three sisters all see and hear something in their home. Could it be their imaginations or are they really seeing this? Lastly, a fun and spoopy look at an old parlour game called “Up, Table Up.”
Standup: Also – if you want to see a very different side of Dan than you see here, his Symphony of Insanity standup tour is back and running. Go to dancummins.tv for ticket links to shows in Missoula, Tempe, Raleigh, Chicago, Salt Lake City, and Davenport, Iowa this spring.

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
“Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
