{WEIRD T.V.} “Silent Twins: Without My Shadow” (1994)

So, its probably safe to say we all love a break from the status-quo when it comes to what to watch . . . we are all fed the same things via Netflix, cable, etc. but sometimes you find yourself thirsting for something off the beaten path that truly quenches that need for the weird, the wonderful, and the strange!

That’s why we are starting this new series we aptly have named {WEIRD T.V.}!

We know many of you fine viewers continue to come back to our site because we aim to offer something a bit more eclectic and unique than your average blog, and have been searching the depths of the interwebs for gems dying to be rediscovered!

We’re gonna present the first video in this series, “Silent Twins: Without My Shadow” which was a BBC special that premiered in 1994 about the strange case of  June and Jennifer Gibbons AKA The Silent Twins.

The bizarre story of these twin girls from the UK first caught our eye on the vlogosphere with several Youtubers telling the strange tale, but this first-hand account includes amazing insight from doctors and journalists who followed the girls’ case since they were young, as well as their parents, and remarkable excerpts from their many journals and short stories.

We don’t want to reveal too much, because the story truly unfolds in such an odd and fantastic way that you really just have to give yourself over to this oddity of a tale.

The story is UNBELIEVABLE! So, If you need a good weird before bed something to watch – this is IT!!!

Alas, we hope you enjoy our first entry into our {WEIRD T.V.} category, and hope you come back for more!

YOU, ME, AND ANGELYNE! L.A. ICON’S TRUE IDENTITY REVEALED!

Everyone knows Angelyne.

A staple of Los Angeles culture, and a precursor to the “famous for being famous” antics of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian; this mysterious blonde bombshell exploded in the 80s with the wish to be famous. You can’t miss her wild billboards or that sexy pink corvette. Even if you don’t know her name – you know here. Trust me. You do!

I love the term Hollyweird, and Angelyne definitely lives up to Los Angeles’ reputation for eclectic characters and unbelievable tales of transformation.

Always a lady of mystery…not much has ever been known about her; The real her, at least.

Most of the time, you can’t make up stories as intriguing and mind rousing as simply searching for the truth. That’s exactly what Gary Baum chronicles in his latest article for The Hollywood Reporter which has got the internet buzzing!

+CLICK HERE TO READ THIS AWESOME ARTICLE+

 

While, I feel a little sad that her mystique has been stripped away, there’s no denying that we are only going to experience an even bigger renaissance of Angelyne and all her bright pink glory.

I wonder how she feels about all this? There are many paparazzi videos of her on the internet, and she seems to hate that kind of attention. Either way, this article does not detract from her legacy as a patron saint of Hollywood….

Everything about her IS Hollywood. The dream to be a star. To be worshipped. Iconized. And of course…the fakery of it all. It’s not a bad thing. I think its empowering to be able to be whoever you want to be.

And that’s why she remains a hero to so many people. In fact, we had posted the original article on our FACEBOOK page (GIVE US A LIKE for cool stories, inspirations, and updates), and we
got a lot of response! I had promised a few people I would share this crazy documentary on Angelyne I had found while perusing the depths of Youtube, so thought why not just feature it on our site!

 

Angelyne definitely has a place here at The Eye of Faith. She is mysterious, enigmatic, beautiful, rebellious, independent, weird, and definitely has a singular sense of self that people would only ever even dream to attain.

 

Angelyne is still alive and well today and pushing her persona to the max, so do her a favour and follow her on Instagram! I was absolutely shocked at how little followers she has on there! So don’t waste the moment, people!

+FOLLOW HER HERE+

Above all else, I feel like Angelyne represents the magic of the feminine. The mystique a woman can harness and use as power in their life. From nothing to something….that’s magic, in itself.

Until we meet again,

The Dapper Mystery Men Who Guard The Secret of the Voynich Manuscripts . . .

The strange, wonderful, and perplex. The Voynich Manuscripts . . . the World’s most wildly weird book. Full of strange diagrams and cryptic text, many generations have passed and still no one has been able to make anything of it.

 

The book is hidden deep away in Yale’s Rare Book Collection making it kind of hard for eager schoolboys to study all of its mysteries . . .The word ‘mystery’, strangely enough comes from the Greek mustrion meaning ‘secret rite’ [from musts, an initiate, from mein, to close the eyes, initiate.]

The mystery would gather together at sacred times in sacred places performing rituals, celebrations, and rites of passage. These sacred ceremonies were held to ensure certain higher knowledge is passed on to the initiate who is chosen under certain circumstances (possessing special intellectual or spiritual prowess, or defining periods in one’s life eg. marriage)

Not to presuppose of course, we all remember Yale is home to one of the World’s most infamous ‘mysteries’ of them all; the notorious ‘Skull and Bones’ society. The notorious fraternity traces its roots to 1832 as ‘The Order of the Skull and Bones”, and includes such influential names as Rockefeller, Tate, Pillsbury, and Bush.

The group operates in secrecy, much as their ancient mystery counterparts, holding their rituals in a building known as ‘The Tomb’. The lost boys were said to possess the last remains of Geronimo. Sounds like a bunch of hocus pocus from an Indiana Jones movie, reads like one too.

Over the years the boys have gotten tied up in strings of allegations and scandals that range from sexual abuse, torture, and Satan worshipping! Not to mention the associations with the Illuminati . . . Seems to me like someone needs to do their homework.

“I don’t mind if my skull ends up on a shelf as long as it’s got my name on it.”

                                              -Debbie Harry

What do you say? Is it all too convenient the World’s weirdest manuscript has landed in the same turf? Maybe they know something we don’t about this strange codex, its weirdly wonderful drawings, and the wisdom that it may entail. Perhaps it provides them with the ingredients to perform the rituals of their predecessors, or maybe they simply see it the same way we do, and this obscure Renaissance relic will continue to be at loss to modern man, and appear as a precarious dot in the framework of history.

I’ll give it to the boys, they have always been doing it in style. Exploring the delicate and strange beauty of the Voynich Manuscripts is a true wonder, and I’d study up now before they do.

The manuscript is available online courtesy of the Beincecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.

Looks to us like everyone’s bathing . . .

Diary of a Small Town – Vintage Dreams and Nightmares

We have quite the tale in store for you today at The Eye of Faith. This one is taken from the darkest depths of our imagination and tells the hidden tales of a quaint small town, not too far from where you sit. It could be any small town, but this one is brimming with mystery, and dare I say, perhaps even evil!

Things started out innocent enough, but there are certain places on this Earth where malevolent energies cluster and stay for many thousands of years. It is in the quiet of the country, far from the claws and chains of the city, that have provided families and individuals with the peace and calm they desire. But often times, it is the unsettling chill of calm that can provide the most fright.

Even in a town where everyone knows your name, you never know the myths and legends being made behind closed doors or the grim memories lost deep beyond the trees at night. This one is all about wayward youth, rebellion, seduction, secrets, mysteries, beauty, and strength.

To our vintage dreams, and  to our vintage nightmares – this one is to a town not yet forgotten. Keep the mystery close, for you never know what clues you may stumble upon. For all you know, they might still need your help.

The Crazy Egyptian Statue That Can’t Stop Dancing!

The rotating statue

[SOURCE: The Laughing Squid]

Have you heard yet about the rotating statue at the Manchester Museum, in Northern England?

This tiny 3,800 year old guy has been turning heads, as many people allege the simple stone statue to be possessed by a mummy’s curse as video footage shockingly reveals the statue had been moving in a rotation over the course of a day, baffling curators, employees, and experts, alike.

Apparently the supernatural behaviour has been debunked and is believed to be caused by the vibrations of the many visitors throughout the day causing the wobbly base of the statue to move and thus rotate.

Question is, why hasn’t this feature been noticed before by anyone? After all, the museum claims the statue had been sitting behind class for 80 years, and it was not until this year that any unusual behaviour had been spotted. Or what about all the other statues in the cabinet?

That’s 2013 for you, I guess.

What do you think?

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: ROSWELL TURNS 66 !!!

Roswell-Sacramento-Bee-Article-July-8-1947

fake roswell alien

This is a still from what Ray Santilli claimed was film footage taken from the Roswell UFO incident depicting an alien autopsy. The film was released in 1995, but later revealed in 2006 as a hoax. Santilli maintains that it was a reconstruction of real events opposed to a fabrication. 

Today marks the 66th anniversary of the alleged crash of a flying saucer just outside Roswell, New Mexico.

This special date, and strangely special anniversary number (66 being a universal number of unconditional love, healing, and trust in the divine), are being celebrated by Google today in their daily Doodle.

It was a very frightening and exciting time, that has no doubt shaped and changed our society and culture forever. After several witnesses spotted seeing flying saucers over Roswell, New Mexico on July 8, 1947, suspicions were raised after Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut announced that a “flying disk” had been recovered on a ranch near Roswell in a press release. Witnesses at site also claim to have seen alien bodies.

These bodies are said to have been taken into top secret research laboratories where they were studied and stored away for future query. Also under question is the alien craft, which many suspect were taken in by the military, and used for their advanced technologies which helped jet us forward into the Space Age.

While the U.S. government has continued to deny the claims (an official 1997 report Case Closed: Final Report on the Roswell Crash attempted to close the case), millions of people still find truth in the dozens of witnesses who have come forward since, claiming to have seen the fragments of another world.

Classified Military Documents- Roswell- Proof

Since then flying saucers and aliens like those described by witnesses have flooded public consciousness and become a mainstay of popular society. And while the government might deny the existence of aliens at Roswell, they sure were interested in the existence of U.F.O.’s, which they documented heavily in the files of Project Blue Book which was shut down in January 1970, and  is now open to public inspection.

We might never know in our lifetime, but the way things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if we did!

Fingers crossed.
