Scarefest 2012 Aaron Goodwin Nick Groff – I’ll tell you, Aaron & Nick were beyond nice and friendly. Not one drop of “I’m a star” has gone to their heads. I didn’t get too much interaction with Nick because of our time constraints but we bumped into Aaron before opening day. He was setting up his own booth for his company, Big Steppin.
We also bumped into him outside on the final day and he took time for a photo and to let us know where Starbucks was. I’ll add…he smells amazing!
I didn’t get to speak too much with Nick but I was able to grab a few clicks here and there with my iPhone.
Nick’s band, The Other Side, played their first public appearance on Saturday night. You can by the CD for The Other Side by clicking here or download the MP3s by clicking here.
Scarefest 2012 Hits Lexington Weekender LexGo – When we TRIED to check into our extremely disgusting hotel (Quality Inn Northwest, Lexington, KY…I’ll post photos of that nightmare later) we were excited to see that the Scarefest was on the front page a paper in the office!
This is a seance that took place at the Scarefest in Lexington, KY on September 29, 2012. It was held at the Lexington Convention center by Aron Houdini. I believe I heard that Harry is Aron’s distant great uncle…I don’t know what “distant” means LOL.
The seance is in 2 parts…sorry about that. We started out holding my iPhone and then decided to place it on the table. The time between the 2 is less than a minute so you don’t miss anything. The seance, as far as I can tell by the naked eye, was uneventful. HOWEVER, I haven’t watched the video…it would be cool if there was something there!
IN THEORY, on the table was a lock, 2 set of handcuffs, a photo and money from Houdini’s wallet the night he died, and a pair of Houdini’s baby shoes. Aron also had 2 assistants. One assistant was wearing a necklace the belonged to Houdini’s mother and the other that had been given to Bess by Harry. Personally? I don’t believe anything on that table belonged to Houdini…but I don’t know.
About 5:45 into the second video Aron picks up the bell in his mouth and rings it. None of us know the point of why he did this. Prior to the seance starting he told us that he would be doing something near the end of the seance, we would see him do it and we would know it was him. We didn’t know what he was going to do…honestly, I thought it would do a magic trick and disappear or something. Nope, he picks up the bell with his mouth and rings it and then jerks his head to 1 side to throw it. He never explains why.
