I Don't See Dead People

So I was watching reruns of "Still Standing" this early afternoon. It's on Lifetime a couple of times a day, and it's a great break from all the nonsense on the other channels.

Anyway, they went to commercial, and Lifetime is presenting a new series called "lisa williams: life among the dead", Mondays at 8 PM.

This show is centered around the activities of a woman named Lisa Williams, a British clairvoyant. Her claim to fame is that supposedly she can talk to the dead, and find spirits in haunted houses, etc.

Sorry. Now no one loves a good ghost story, scary spirit movie, etc., more than I do. I love the thrills of Stephen King books; I loved Poltergeist, Nightmare on Elm Street and the Exorcist.

But I don't believe in that stuff. It's a cute parlor trick, and some of these fortune tellers can be pretty slick, but I just don't buy it. It's too random, all the "messages" they claim to be hearing.

I'd love to think it's possible, I think it would be awesome if it were, but I just don't buy into any of it.

OK that's all from my brain this hour.

  1. Have you watched it yet,Jimmy? It's actually pretty good. If they aren't faking it (ie. parlor tricks per the network) than she really is pretty darn good. I've watched it a few times, and I'm like you, I love a good ghost story, but I'm kind of skeptical myself. She is good, I have to give her that much. :)

  2. I'm actually very impressed with this woman. I do not believe in ALL psychics, clarvoyants, etc...but I DO believe that there are some very gifted people in these areas.
    Did you ever watch her? Have you ever been "freaked" by someone like that, personally?
    Try and be open...ya never know.
