In her presentation History and Consciousness, Penny Kelly will discuss her latest book Consciousness and Energy, Vol 3. This is a no-holds-barred book about religion, sex, power and consciousness. It is one that could not have been written without Kelly’s extensive experience with kundalini, her wide-ranging research into consciousness, and her critical ability to synthesize and present information. It presents an entirely different view of our history, what we used to be, why we are here, and where we can go if we choose to. Consciousness and Energy, Vol. 3 is the third in a trilogy of books presenting extraordinary research into consciousness, energy, and human transformation.

Penny Kelly is an author, teacher, speaker, publisher, personal and spiritual consultant, and Naturopathic physician. In 1979, while working as a tool and process engineer for Chrysler Corp, she experienced a full, spontaneous awakening of kundalini that completely changed her life. For some years she has been involved in scientific research and investigations into consciousness at Pinelandia Laboratory near Ann Arbor, MI and has been the subject of some research as well.

She holds a degree in Humanistic Studies from Wayne State University, and a degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Clayton College of Natural Health. Penny is the mother of four children and has written seven books.

The Evolving Human – A True Story of Awakening Kundalini
The Elves of Lily Hill Farm – A Partnership With Nature
Robes – A Book of Coming Changes
Getting Well Again, Naturally – From the Soil to the Stomach
Consciousness and Energy, Vol. 1 – Multi-dimensionality and a Theory of Consciousness
Consciousness and Energy, Vol. 2 – New Worlds of Energy

The Ghosts of the Greer Building – TxDoT’s Transportation News, October 2003

VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 10.0/10 (1 vote cast)

A few years ago someone asked me if I’d ever heard any weird stories about the Dewitt C. Greer building downtown. They proceeded to tell me they had heard tales of folks seeing blood-smeared walls and other strange haunting phenomena on certain floors within specific rooms.

Recently, as I was working on archiving paper files and periodicals held by the Anomaly Archives, I came across the October 2003 issue (Volume 29, Number 2) of TxDoT’s Transportation News magazine whose cover shouts:

GHOSTS. . . Discovered in the Greer Building !!


The Ghosts of Greer by Mike Cox / Editor

If Harvey Hubert hadn’t fatally stabbed that young Austin man on Halloween night in 1916, he might have lived to see the fine new Highway Department building go up where the Travis County Jail once stood.

But that’s not how it worked out. At 1:50 p.m. on Aug. 23, 1918, Sheriff George Matthews sprang the trap on the gallows inside the jail and Hubert paid for his crime at the end of a rope.

Hubert, 34, had the distinction of being the last of nine men legally hanged in the castle-like stone jail, built for $100,000 in 1876 at the corner of 11th and Brazos streets — present location of the Dewitt C. Greer Building.

Who knows? Maybe Hubert’s spirit has something to do with the mysterious footsteps and strange noises some TxDOT employees have reported hearing at night in the big meeting room and on the eighth floor when the building’s supposedly empty.

But for anyone who believes in ghosts, there are plenty of suspects.

Convict Hill Road

“In the 1880’s a budget crunch led the state of Texas to bring convicts in to the area to work the quarry. 8 convicts died while working and were buried in the area known as Convict Hill. These convicts now haunt the road”

Streets of Fear – Convict Hill Road – FEARNet.

Is There Anything Paranormal or Mysterious About Convict Hill Road?

by SMiles Lewis


In early October of 2009 I was contacted by an associate producer for the online webisode series “Streets of Fear” who was wanting to know if I knew anything paranormal or mysterious about Convict Hill Road here in Austin, Texas. The online series is part of the horror lineup of programming offered at Fear Net dot com that focuses on ultra brief media bytes exploring stories of American streets with really spooky names, such as  Bloody Pond, White Wolf, Dark Hollow, Widow Susan, Beelzebub, Gore Orphanage, Hell Hollow, Shades of Death, Gallows Hill, Purgatory, Spook Rock, Burnt Church, Witches Rock, Bloods Point, Tombstone Canyon, Mount Misery, Extraterrestrial Highway, and Bloody Spring. They had contacted me after finding my friend James Bankston whose article in the Oak Hill Gazette had gotten their attention.

Summer Flying Saucer Cinema Series – Quatermass & The Pit

VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)


NEXT EVENT DATE: Saturday June 12th

Begins Memorial Weekend / Saturday Night May 29th

(“Rain Day” Sunday the 30th)

This month we are launching an all new series of events:


This new monthly event will be a FREE showing of lesser known “Flying Saucer Films” with a focus on those that have important points to be made regarding the nature of paranormal, UFO and other anomalous phenomena, as well as society’s cultural reactions to UFO related phenomena.

UFO related phenomena and the Modern Wave of Flying Saucer sightings in the United States have had a lasting effect upon American Popular Culture. For that reason we feel it fitting to host this new event series at the South Austin Popular Culture Center (frmly the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture).

Beginning with … Quatermass & the Pit, aka Five Million Years to Earth!

Go HERE for links to info about the event.

After-Dark Saucer Culture Film-Fest

The ufo phenomenon exists in a synergistic cybernetic interface with humanity. Whatever the true nature of UFOs, they interact with us within several different milieus, all of which are influenced by the media and culture. This media and culture in turn feeds back into the phenonomenon in a continuous cycle.If the fantastic fictions of our television and print media can feedback upon and influence our images and ideas of the unknown then we will continue to have a harder and harder time of sorting the wheat from the chaff of non-human intelligences communicating through the ufo encounter.

Therefore it is very important that we look at some of the various ways the subject of UFOs and Aliens have been handled by the film and television industries. Each night’s selection of films delves into these issues areas especially as they relate to that day’s particular event theme.

Five Million Years To Earth (1967)
aka Quatermass & The Pit

By Nigel Kneale

“Was the Devil really a Martian? Could our predatory nature be the result of a eugenics experiment performed on our ancestors by aliens millions of years ago? These are the questions raised after an ancient spaceship is unearthed in the London Underground, and Professor Quatermass must answer them before the world is torn apart in a Martian race war. Based on the popular BBC sci-fi t.v. series.”

    Quatermass & the Pit

    Prince of Darkness (1987)

    Carpenter’s script assembles elements of his earlier films in a kind of survey; especially Precinct 13’s siege setting and hordes from out of the demimonde, and The Thing’s shapeless, body-claiming alien force. The writing is good, littered with funny lines and highly imaginative contemporary twists on the tale’s origins in the works of Nigel Kneale, to whom Carpenter pays nod-wink homage by billing the screenplay as the work of “Martin Quatermass”.

    “Cryptozoology’s answer to Hunter Thompson” – Nick Redfern

     [Jon Downes at Loch Ness in 2005]  

    The Anomaly Archives welcomes British Fortean researcher Jon Downes to Austin, Texas for a lecture on all things anomalous, Fortean, cryptozoological and UFOlogical. Please join us at the Anomaly Archives lending library (located at 12593 Research Blvd., Suite 302) from 1 to 5pm, Saturday, March 20th for an enlightening lecture from one of the world’s leading cryptozoological field investigators.

    In both 1998 and 2004, Jon traveled to the island of Puerto Rico in search of the deadly, blood-sucking creature known as the Chupacabras – a beast that has been linked with a large amount of UFO activity, including UFO crashes, on the island.  

    Jon will be speaking about his two expeditions, findings, theories and conclusions as to what the creature may be. Jon will also reveal the very latest news on his quest to find out the truth concerning the so-called Texas Chupacabras.

    The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists:


    A friend of mine, Skylaire Alfvegren, recently began her own regional strange phenomena oriented organization. More than just another ghost hunting, UFO data collecting, or bigfoot tracking group, my friend has created a unique collective of anomalous informationalists: The League of Fortean Intermediatists, aka LOWFI and Forteans West.

    I’m proud to be her easternmost representative, serving as Texas Bureau Chief, and blogging on all things anomalous and Fortean happening in and around the State. One of my most recent blogs archives my roundup of Texas strangeness that I originally published when I was editor of the Austin Para Times newspaper:

    AusTex Anomalous Para Guide to Texas

    AusTex Anomalous Guide to Para Texas pg 6 AusTex Anomalous Guide to Para Texas

    apt3-pg6 / apt3-pg7

    But there many other fine contributors to this new Fortean League representing each of the Western States (still seeking Bureau Chiefs for a few states) as well as monthly Featured Editorials including the premier post by former British UFO official, Nick Pope. Check em all out …
