Saul is the chief correspondent for the Museum of the Weird in Austin, Texas. He began by writing regular articles in the web site’s blog. Then, in early 2016, the Museum changed their social media strategy, focusing more on Facebook posts. Below you’ll find the latest entries from Facebook followed by the blog archive. Click a section to expand it.

You can also catch Saul regularly at the Museum giving personal tours of the Inner Sanctum and providing a taste of his Paranormal Entertainment. If you know you are going to the Museum, contact Saul to find out when he’ll be there and so he can arrange something special to celebrate your visit.

Here are the last dozen posts to Facebook. To see more go to the Museum’s Facebook page.

Dressing up for a family outing. We should do that more. The woman with the long, beautiful hair is actually Alice Elizabeth Doherty, known as the American Werewolf. She had a condition called hypertrichosis lanuginosa, which caused hair to grow differently for her. On display at the Museum we have a waxwork of Jo Jo the Dogfaced Boy, who had the same condition and toured with P. T. Barnum.

See Jo Jo when you visit the weirdest place in Austin, The Museum of the Weird. Enjoy a thrilling tour of our bizarre oddities and a live performance. You'll also find something to take home in our amazing art and souvenirs. Special surprise gift for military, students, and seniors with purchase of a museum ticket.

You can dress for the occasion (Actually, that would be fun!) or come as you are. You don't even have to shave if you don't want to.

Report released from 4-year Bigfoot search

Is this how it all ends?

In the midst of the big holiday season there's nothing like giving a little thought to the end of the world. While wars, pestilence, disease, and alien invasion are still the favorite stories, there is a danger lurking out there that we can't really do anything about.
