Paranormal Convention Gremlins

I have seen booths fall down and tables collapse. I have seen Venders and many Paranormal writers, and stars books, pens and gear disappear. Is it theft or sabotage? Is it fans going over the limit? or could it be the ghosts that follow these haunted individuals around?

Sometimes people become targets of supernatural occurrences. Especially paranormal writers, and ghost and haunted anomalous investigators. Things go wrong at every convention I attend. From lost presentations to collapsing booths, and missing money and dealers stock. Also notice the many personal injuries, strange feelings, and tension in the rooms? Have you personally witnessed lost power, mic's won't work, lights that go out. Or is it direct Sabotage from fellow investigators? Who really know unless we investigate the strange things that are paranormal.

The first annual TAPSCON was held at the beautiful Belleview Biltmore Resort Hotel & Spa in Clearwater and was the new annual event unlike Central Florida has ever seen. Features of the event included autograph sessions with celebrities like Linda Blair, of “The Exorcist,” the cast of “Ghost Hunters” from the SciFi Channel, cast members from CBS’s “Survivor” reality game show, as well as numerous other movie and T. V. Stars. The weekend featured lectures on ghosts, demons, psychics and weird creatures, by the world’s leading experts on such topics.

Nancy Planeta, Co-Organizer said t “Visitors to the convention can get psychic readings, celebrity autographs, watch demonstrations, shop with vendors, and see authentic T. V. and movie memorabilia.” And we did! I also heard many have already bought a VIP ticket for TAPSCON 09 (yep, that's right, next year!)

Robert The Doll Ghost Photos!

Please See More: Real Ghost Photos of Robert the Doll Here.


The larger the convention Workshop or group meeting behind closed doors things are going on that just cannot be explained. In 2008 alone I have been to 6 paranormal main Events. Robert the real haunted doll made a special guest appearance to spook out a few guest at Taps CON 2008. The paranormal convention held in Clearwater, Florida in May 2008. This was the first time the 105 year old Robert the Doll left his home town of Key West, Florida. And all the Paranormal Paparazzi was there in full force to take his picture with or with out his permission...

The real paranormal prolific words around the Convention Came out of Grant Wilson's own mouth came. " Everybody, if anything goes wrong blame Robert the Doll!" Later in the night Sc-Fi's Chief handsome devil of a Ghost Hunter and resident now a days amateur Plumber Jason Hawes. Well jokingly said, that he said it first, as a few things didn't go as planed as you all can see. He spoke to those in attendance. But I question you all did Robert The very real Haunted Doll ... Well did he? ... Do it for real?


This is why I have taken it upon myself to get together a team to ghosts hunt Conventions. Now I fly in to a convention with anyone else who is able to get there a day or three in advance. Why you may ask? Well to investigate the location for any haunting's, real ghosts or paranormal activity prior to the Event. I also stay for two to three days after just to see if the haunted level of the location ends or goes dormant after these the cream of the paranormal crop leave the location.

As a VIP Package holder, I had the option of attending group investigations led by cast members of the show Ghost Hunters. I personally walked the halls of the haunted hotel with Jason, Grant or other Ghost Hunters cast members. Alternatively, others were paired up with Patrick Burns of Tru TV's "Haunting Evidence" and Ciaran O'Keeffe of the Travel Channels "Most Haunted".

Ghost Hunters Gossip

Ghost hunter do talk. Yes and they then to tell tales on other groups brining up their ghastly ghostly pasts. You can often find out who did who. If someone has a criminal record, who is gay, or any dirty little secret you could ever want to hear. Hey that's life as Sinatra said... and how it works. It is all that happens all the time at many different levels of the world. And even in the Paranormal world of real ghosts.

TAPSCON COVERARE CONTINUES: Please visit here now! Check out all the interviews.

Roto-Rooter plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson moonlight as ghostbusters for clients who claim to be experiencing paranormal phenomena is how they have been billed in the past. But now in todays world they have become the standard that so many groups wish to hold as the most professional in the world to copy.

My favorite recent convention story tells of two rival Paranormal Groups actually had a fist fight in the parking lot. The cops came, people were arrested a near riot broke out. I bet they will be talking about that one for years.

But the latest roumors or that a Major Parmormal Investigator is investigating the Paranormal Convention Circuit. And for a fact For sure that they are. Ghost Hunters bring ghost with them. It's true. We all know that for a fact. Don't we?


Consider the fact that the large majority of those in attendance are in the paranormal field. We attract ghosts because we wan to research them. And we all know particular ghosts do stalk us cling to us and protect us.

Steve Gonsalves has been very out spoken to tell a few paranormal investigators when asked. Do you think this place is haunted? His answer was, " It is now!" It is because he is of the new belief that ghosts can come and go as they please. They won't really expound on it on TV but we all know it's true.


Another thing that goes on at conventions that you will surely learn is what paranormal Investigators like or respect. Or that lack of they have for one another. Just because I reccomend a Troy Taylors Book to a person to read. Just then another faction group memeber walks up and praises Taylor's as being the real deal Best Ghost Writer In the world. People try to out due people all the time. And make a statement. So Do I think that Ghosts do the same. And they haunt us at these events more then we can imagine.


Necromancy In A Dark Hotel Room

So I decided to put all this conjecture that ghosts come to our conventions and workshops. " I wonder if a another ghost is charging admission?" " Oh, Well. " It was the first night of the convention and 4 :AM when I called up a spirit to appear before me and so question.

The lone Ghost identified it self as Debbie Trenton. So if anyone who attend Taps CON, a paranormal convention held in Clearwater, Florida in May 2008, know who she is let me know. I have a message for you.

Debbie said that several ghosts have come with people at least a five to one percentage. She told me that their were more ghost in the convention room then people.

Paranormal Conventions Stink!

At least that was the word from my long time old pal Yvonne Brown formally from Marshall, Tx and now resident Floridian. "The ghost in attendance are to many for me to comprehend." " And the mixture of foul and pleasant odors co mingling together is a deadly combination." (Brown actually Smells real ghosts when present in a location). She said she never smelt so many ghosts at one time in her life. The stench was so unbearable to her she actually fainted into a member of another teams arms. Many chucked it off as claustrophobia but she revived quickly and had to leave immediately saying. "Today I have found the most haunted spot on earth!" " It is Taps CON!" Brown says "Some ghosts are arid Smelling and very much too much of a stench to bare". "The many strange smells often make me very sick to my stomach" She says.

Special thanks to the following teams for their support and for helping to keep TAPSCON Great. Without these teams and their volunteers! Also many of my many new best friends. Mickey Of Miami, Jupiter Florida Ghost Wranglers, SWFPI (Southwest Florida Paranormal Investigations), Yvonne Brown and Cazadores Cubanos del fantasma de Miami, KPI (Kissimmee Paranormal), FPR (Florida Paranormal Research), P.R.O.O.F. (Paranormal Research Organization of Florida) And all the other guest that delightfully were entertained be me, and I by them.

I was certainly surprised at how many people recognized me and asked. Spoken to any good ghost lately? I actually was hoping to go as a guest of the great group Cazadores Cubanos del fantasma de Miami, And just mingle in the crowd and not be noticed. But I had the best time of My life and I have to say Tapscon Stinks of real Ghosts in the right way!

Also if you did not notice this article is void of pictures. I did the Robert the Doll Ghost Photo test and he broke my new Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6. Thank you Robert I love you too!

"I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

She then moved to Houston's Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This now where she resides to this day. Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy and her new found religion of Voodoo Hoodoo.

Waugh is often compared today in her facial features and many similar practices as being a modern Dr. John Dee. He of course was one of the most fascinating characters of the Elizabethan period just as Waugh is recognized as such in modern times. The events of Dee's life are filled with science, experiments, astrology and mathematics which he aligned with magic, the supernatural and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's personal passion and driven honest beliefs. These are also stead fast traditions she does and true in practicing openly. A few of her select followers say she is the actual reincarnation of John Dee. Waugh also practices astrology, and is very continuously studying the Black Arts.

Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal does not comment on any of this privately or publicly ... for she is humble in her paranormal studies and research to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend of her's relates: "Waugh is a very outgoing friendly, charming and a downright loveable person, and gets along equally well with the living and the dead." Lanier and Waugh once investigated a real Haunted Texas Federal Prison together for close to two years in the early 1990's and had many startling paranormal adventures while there.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments have been achieved through hard work, persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude required to overcome obstacles and reach difficult goals. Waugh shares her approach to communicating with the dead's success in this motivational performance that's sure to inspire Paranormal Investigators to excel in their life.
