Wednesday Weirdness: The Disappearance of Tom Eggleton — From the Pen of Mae Clair

Hi, Friends. Welcome to another Wednesday Weirdness. Thanks for visiting today as I roll out a post about a mysterious disappearance—and thunderbirds. These enormous winged creatures have long been an integral part of Native American folklore, but original Thunderbird legends date back thousands of years and can be traced to Egypt and Africa. With wingspans […]

Interesting situation and worthy of this week’s Weirdness Wednesdays post this week. Also, qualifies under Cryptids – Urban Dictionary and Wikipedia links below:

What are Cryptids and Cryptozoology?

In case you missed that post or the various other posts where I mention cryptids (What are cryptids?) or cryptozoology (What is cryptozoology?).

    • You are welcome. I try to do a mix. I see you are a fan of Dark Shadows. As the youngest, I only got control of the TV when I was home alone or if my parents and siblings didn’t have a preference. As I got home from school before anyone else and my parents both worked, Dark Shadows was one of the few times I had control of TV. I used to own the complete DVD collection when it first came out, but had to get rid of it as I needed the money more than I needed the collection. It’s on my bucket list to get back.

      I like your stance on cryptids and cryptozoology. I do a semi-regular cryptids theme. It’s not weekly like some of my themes, but when I run across something that falls in the category. I watched Kolchak: The Night Stalker when it came out before I knew there were such things as cryptids.

        My older sisters loved Dark Shadows and would put it on TV when they got home from school. I got sucked into it and became a rabid fan. Every now and then I catch one of the old episodes on a rerun. Looking back, it was so badly produced, and yet it was so good, LOL!

        Yes, I am a huge cryptid fan. I even wrote a three-book series featuring the Mothman, and traveled to Point Pleasant to do onsite research. I’ll have to look for your cryptid features.
        And I remember Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I used to love that show!

        I wanted to meet Barnabas, but he passed away a few years ago.

        There’s a mansion someone created that’s based on a combination of the Dark Shadows mansion with Bat poles similar to the Batman series. It’s near Gibsonia, PA. It was up for sale $3.5 million.

        Oooh, so many cool cryptic posts. What fun!

        I believe the original Collinswood was based on a mansion in Connecticut. And that opening shot of the waves beating against cliffs? Bar Harbor, Maine. My hubs and I took a trip to BH this past fall. I was delighted, shocked, and thrilled when I learned we were right there at that cliff face. I had no clue before the trip.

        And I’m going to have to look up that mansion in PA. Er….not that I could afford it, LOL.

      • It was based on the mansion from Dark Shadows aside from the bat pole and Batman additions.

        They have a Dark Shadows Festival, usually L. A. or New York area.

        I had no clue about the festival. That must be fun! 🙂

      • Never been, but it’s been going on since 1983. A group of fans are doing a GoFundMe for a special cast reunion to be held in L. A. in August. It’s a bit over $1,600 of the goal of $3,000. I will be doing a blog post about it shortly.

        I would like to go to the festival one day, but L. A. and East Coast are a bit beyond my budget for a few more years.
