Man Receives E-Mail From Dead Friend.

File this under ‘Unexplained‘, because to date there still hasn’t been a sufficient explanation as to why close friends of young man from Pennsylvania all received e-mails from his account after he had died.

E-mails which specifically referenced private conversations and details only his friends would know about.

 

A Fairytale Cop Series Called Grimm…Wait, What?

With Autumn, (or ‘The Fall‘ if you’re reading this across the pond), approaching fast there has been a deluge of announcements regarding new TV series coming to a small screen near you. But one which stood out from all the rest was NBC’s Grimm, for obvious reasons.

Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things… things he couldn’t quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he’s not like everyone else, he’s a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as “Grimms” who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. And so begins his new life journey – albeit a reluctant one at first – as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can’t quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a “big bad wolf.” Literally!

While the Brothers Grimm wrote fairy tales that children have adored for generations, imagine if the villains were real, and Nick was the only one who could stop them.

Oh yes they did! (via Warming Glow)

Begad! Hunter Snaps Strange Creature On Camera.

Set kecks to scarecited! This image, which has fascinated the entire crew here, was allegedly taken by an anonymous hunter in Louisiana. He wants to remain anonymous for fear of people claiming that he’s a hoaxer. Apparently this humanoid lurker of a creature was snapped by the hunter’s deer camera which was set up on a reserve in Berwick near Morgan City. The hunter claims that when he went to retrieve the camera the next morning he found it, along with his hide, in pieces. He took what was left of his camera home and managed to¬† download the pictures to his computer before screaming so loudly his trousers flew across his sitting room. This image has been burning up the Internet over the last few days and it could be one of three things:

1. A viral promotional picture of a Grim, for the up and coming PS3 alien invasion game Resistance 3.

2. A viral promotional still from the up and coming Steven Spielberg/JJ Abrams alien movie Super 8.

3. It’s real. Anyone want to buy a five man tent and some sleeping bags? We have no further use for them…ever!

N.B. Here’s a video of what some people online are claiming is the same hoax, a video taken by some hunters in Spain who claim they accidentally came a cross a similar looking creature in the woods.

Avast! Supernatural: The Animation Trailer

Maybe we’re just full of bumboo and grog here at HMS Friday but this trailer for the Japanese anime version of the hit TV series Supernatural looks…well, super. Apparently there are 22 episodes which will air in America in February, (so expect it to air here in the UK around never time), and will keep faithful to some elements of the series as it follows the adventures and exploits of Sam and Dean Winchester. We just hope they keep that excellent Japanese cover version of Carry On My Wayward Son as the theme tune. (Via io9)
