Fortean Times

OK, now I love this magazine. I first discovered it when visiting Krista and Carson, and hanging out in Chapters one fine afternoon. Carson was looking for the latest issue – and he was kind enough to give me a whole stack of back issues that he had lying around the house.

What’s not to like about a magazine whose regular features include ‘Strange Deaths’ and ‘The UFO Files’? I received my first subscription issue today, and am relieved to find that the quality has not dimmed over time. One of my favourite bits of the magazine is the ‘Sidelines…’ sections on a few pages, that contain some odd, bizarre, or wacky stories. This month?

During rehearsals for a new show at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, actress Sutton Foster fell and broke an arm while she sang a song. The song’s title was: ‘I’m An Accident Waiting to Happen’…

…or…

A 35-stone (220 kg) bear became an unwanted guest in Gerovo, western Croatia, after learning to knock on doors. “I opened the door and saw him standing there and I didn’t believe my eyes at first, then I ran for it as he walked in as if it was the most natural thing in the world,” said Nevenka Loknar. After this happened three times, the Loknar family refused to open the door.

Really? Whyever for?? 😮 Ahhh – hours of surreal fun to look forward to this weekend…
