This week on The Gralien Report, we welcome Hobbo back in off the road, as we reunite the Gralien gang in the wake of Eclipse 2017, and turn our attention to the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey further south. We also look at the rediscovery of a “ghost comet,” and the strange “chemical haze” that recently caused hospitalization of many Londoners… is it in any way similar to a “deathly fog” that attacked the city in the 1950s?

Then in the second hour, after recapping a few legends about “wild men” sightings in Kentucky, we head to the Northeast where, in 1917, locals around Bergin, New Jersey were reporting frightening encounters with one of the alleged wild men of the Americas, dubbed “Oily Oliver” by the railroad workers that encountered him. Were the frightening reports of encounters with this individual more than just the stuff of urban legends?

  1. I would like to propose a kick starter for my film project. It is a reboot of Bill and Ted’s Excellent adventure but instead of them being talentless musician’s they are current day film making hacks. Mike Bay appears from the future in a port o potty and takes them back to the golden age of cinema to steal ideas for their movies. My hope is to get enough money to hire Zach Snyder to film shampoo bottles, and coca cola labels, and have Chris Nolan write in how Hollywood in the future are saints because that one time they didn’t drop bombs on innocent people and how they would love remakes and right wing tyranny if batman or the guy who filmed it was fronting them.
