Reports of the UFO’s Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Remember a few years back when a bunch of huge media outlets were running stories that were all: whatever happened to the UFO? And it was like, huh? You mean when you stopped covering UFO stuff and then you started writing articles wondering why you stopped covering UFO stuff and not really answering that question? Is that what you’re talking about? The fact of the matter is, not only has UFO shit not gone away, it’s never going to go away until we confront it.

As it turns out, by a lot of recent reports there have been more UFO sightings in recent years than ever, but did you know that there are 2 pretty interesting new-ish documentaries you can check out on Netflix currently? Neither did I until I accidentally stumbled on them. Both totally worth your time. The fact is, I haven’t paid a ton of attention to UFO related anything in roughly a decade. I read so much about that stuff when I was in my early 20’s I just sort of burnt out on it. Eventually you just feel like you’re not hearing anything new and move on. Look, it’s not aliens. That doesn’t fit the evidence here, nor does it match my own encounters at all. When people start talking about all these specific species and their detailed disclosure plans and what not, I start tuning out.

Hell, I’m also far more interested in the psycho-spiritual aspect of the phenomenon rather than the UFO footage in the first place, which is why I wasn’t sure what I’d think about The Curse of the Man who Sees UFO’s, but I of course had to watch it anyway.


Glad I did. So utterly strange. I love how you see craptons of people constantly making the argument: with all the technology available to us these days, why have we not gotten tons of good UFO footage? These people have apparently never heard of the internet and should definitely watch this film. This guy (Christo Roppolo) has so much UFO footage it’s ridiculous, and the thing is, tons of it where he’s filming and runs into other people that verify they see what he’s seeing. Tons of neighbors and old friends who validate his stories, and it’s tough to see what their motivation would be for doing so. Again, footage of him filming this stuff in public places and random strangers walking up and verifying that they’re seeing what he’s filming.

He’s got so much of this sort of footage it’s nuts. Here’s where the sorcerer in me goes, if this is aliens, why does it seem to be so tied to very specific people? What is super strange about Roppolo is that there’s very little contact encounters in his life, except for this one time where a UFO made him shit his pants (no really). But these sentient lights just follow the dude around for some reason and he’s become completely obsessed with filming them.  It goes a ton into the his personal psychology and he asks the question: “why is this happening to me?” repeatedly. If I were to wager an answer to that question it’d be, maybe because you got a documentary made about it that’s on Netflix. Again, definitely worth your time and I have zero clue what to make of it all entirely but more than anything, it made me want to go drop acid and do ritual magick in Monterey, California.

I only looked for that movie on Netflix because I stumbled on this other streaming UFO film I’d never heard of called Extraordinary: The Stan Romanek Story which apparently came out in 2013. Again, I stopped following UFO stuff closely for roughly a decade or I’m sure I’d have heard of this dude. What can I say? It’s like if Whitley Strieber had tons of video and audio to back up his shockingly bizarre stories. Again, aliens don’t fit the mold here at all. Some of the videos this guy has look completely fake, and even I thought they were and that I was watching an obvious hoax for like 15 minutes at one point. Then the more they interviewed the guy I didn’t know what to think. He seems legit. He’s either an incredibly talented actor and so is his wife or something very odd is going on with them.

Still, some of the footage just seems too good to be true, so when he pointed out in one of the scenes that even he thought the being looked like a puppet, you’re just scratching your head. Is someone or something just fucking with him? What stood out to me more than anything with Stan though is, at no point does he claim to have a clue as to what’s going on. Never. His final conclusion is simply, something beyond human comprehension is going on here. That’s it. Which is all I’ve been saying about me being summoned into sorcery by strange discarnate entities all along, and like Stan, I have a decent amount of hard evidence at this point that legitimizes the strangeness of my story (although no incredibly fake looking videos).


Stop reading if you don’t want spoilers, but the movie ends with the revelation that Stan is up on child pornography charges. Just checked and the trial is set to start tomorrow. He claims he was framed with malicious software (which does apparently exist) and is going to bring the whole UFO issue out at the trial to establish the motive for someone framing him. To which I say, wow. Get your popcorn ready.
