Supernatural Detectives

While trying to fight off a nasty virus of some sort, I spent the better part of last weekend watching old episodes of Kolchak: The Night Stalker. As I reacquainted myself with the original TV movies and some of my favorite episodes of the subsequent series, I began thinking of other famous supernatural investigators and created a brief presentation with the new presentation editor, Prezi (still in private beta). The resulting images and texts can be found here, and if you follow the path by clicking the "next" arrow, they will even display in chronological order. Enjoy . . .

Film of Early 20th Century Manchester

This video turned up three days ago at Livejournal's Vintage Photographs community (and was promptly taken down--it's not a photograph). I haven't yet tracked down the source, but it does appear to be footage of turn of the century Manchester and so I thought it should have a home here.
