Apokryphunk is here to explore the paranormal and unexplained for purely comical entertainment purposes. You can consider this blog an example of paranormal comedy. A fictitious paranormal adventure in progress. You may also consider this blog a work of Complete Comical Genius! Or not. Hey, you can’t please everyone!
Apokryphunk is a word invented my the owner and creator of this web site.
Apokryphunk is comes from the Greek word “apokryphos” which is meaning “obscure,” and the word “phunk” which is comes from “funk” not “punk” and is meaning “bullshit, nonsense, crap, garbage, slop, spew, etc.” So there you go.
More specifically, Apokryphunk is derived from “Apocryphal” which means “of doubtful authenticity, although widely circulated as being true.” Get it?
Thus, Apokryphunk is that shit some humans think they know but can’t, not really, and spew it out all over the world anyway, like paranormal “investigators”, psychics, spirit mediums, Dr. Oz, daytime TV show hosts, UFO peoples with funny hair and church pastors do.
The spew, funk, bunk and bullshit is the supernatural, ghosts, demons, paranormal phenomena, ESP, homeopathy, politics. That stuff. Apokryphunk.com will not cover politics, I’m just including that as an example. It’s all bullshit though. Entertaining at times, yes, but bullshit nonetheless. Bunk, some may say.
The original form of this website, Strange Encounters, was developed as a forum where people could share their strange experiences and encounters with the unknown. The forum no longer exists because it sucked and no one ever stopped by. So Apokryphunk was born, a blog where the varied mysteries of the unexplained and other hoohah can be chewed up and spit out by the relentless jaws of my flawless logic.
If you are easily offended, who cares. Go to some other site and read about teddy bears and angels. But if you are as interested as I in marauding the paranormal landscape, follow me on my quest for complete paranormal pandemonium.
Who is the author of this groundbreaking area of the paranormal inter-webs? I am Ghost Writer. As a former agent of a US government black op I cannot use my real name. Having been forced into early retirement from my government gig, with a substantial compensation to generally keep my mouth shut, I work on the fringe. Alone save for one individual who remains on the “inside” and provides me with some intel at times.
I dedicate my time to sniffing out the truth behind paranormal claims, and sometimes that leads me into some interesting situations. You can follow my progress in the Apokryphunk Adventure, which is presented as fiction, but every tale of the unexplained, every piece of mysterious lore, is based on some kind of truth right?
If you haven’t yet fallen asleep I will continue…
Yes, in the first few paragraphs of this about page I ripped a gaping hole in fanciful claims of the supernatural and unexplained, but I must admit that my investigations have at times caused me to check my sanity, to wonder if some of these strange things may not be really all that bogus.
Stick around. Things may get interesting around here. And at the very least, it should be a fun and entertaining trip through the bizarre landscape of the paranormal and unexplained.
