Just Passin' Through
from Scott
Hailing From: Stuart, Florida
Where it Happened:
Stoughton, MA

This all happened during a rather rough period of time in my life and I would like to think that because of this, what I thought was happening, was indeed, a figment of my imagination.

On or about September of 1987 I found myself living with a good friend who had taken me in. For reasons better left unsaid, she agreed to let me live with her in her downstairs apartment until we married, or until I came to my senses. Late one evening, at exactly 2:15 a.m., while listening to an old (1960's vintage) stereo, I noticed some strange activity from the tuner. Thinking that the evenings libations had gotten the better of me, I didn't think much of it, until the next night.

Once again, when I tuned into a certain frequency, I saw strange green figures appearing out of the stereo console. At first I thought it was kind of cool until after the next few nights, on exactly the same frequency, at exactly the same time, green shapes started to take form.

They started out as just green sources of light, then they started to take form. Being freaked out, I decided not to indulge or imbibe anymore. Nevertheless, at exactly 2:15, up came the shapes.

No matter where I was in the house, they would fly as long as the power was on the old stereo. These seemingly friendly shapes that danced with me though the house, started to become more focused! They would appear directly in front of me with aged faces that would turn to skulls upon closer inspection.

These strange apparitions would take great pleasure in passing through my body. At every crossing, a jolt of electricity would surge though me. Of course I had to tell people about this experience, but no-one believed me. So one night I decided to have a few (sober) friends watch as 2:15 came around.

As it happened, I was the only one that could see them coming from out of the tuner, but every time the spirits passed through me, my hair would stand up (as if I were affected with static electricity). At one very scary moment, when the evil presence that appeared to be the leader penetrated me, a close friend grabbed my arm and was knocked out by the electric energy flowing through me -- and his hair stood out on end -- and was soon a believer.

That was the last time I stayed in that house or saw anything quite like it. To this day I don't know if she still has the that stereo, but I'll never be listening to that frequency at 2:15 ever again.


And here I was wondering if he ever got the girl!

Thanks for the encounter, Scott! I appreciate you sending it in. Since these critters were green, I wonder if they had anything to do with the leprechauns! After watching Darby O'Gill and the Little People again on St. Patricks Day (and I always get a kick that Sean Connery played a supporting role in that movie -- and it was the first movie he ever appeared in, and singing too!) I would venture a guess that anything is possible. I do wonder though why they chose the older technology, and that certain time of night.

Possibly you'd be much better off with compact discs and digital music with preset timers. Oh well, it was just a thought....

Also a side note, we had another wonderful evening at the Captain's Anchorage in Big Bear Lake, California. Thanks so much to Lorraine for making it possible!
