Just the Facts?: Johnny Depp as ALF -- UFO Light Show & Helicopters -- Supernatural Police Calls

Johnny Depp wants to play ALF (Alien Life Form)

Johnny Depp wouldn’t mind playing ALF should someone decide to reboot the bizarre 80s sitcom.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star discussed quite a few things during his conversation with Rolling Stone magazine. At some point during their chat, Depp made a peculiar reference to the furry alien.

“What’s it all about, Alfie?” the busy actor told the publication. “Or, ‘ALF!’ Probably best to go to ‘ALF,’ actually. What’s it all about, ‘ALF?’”

He continued, “I should play ‘ALF.’ F***ing fantastic. ‘ALF.’ Yeah, it should be called ‘ALF: The Stuff You Never Saw.’”

ALF (Alien Life Form) debuted on NBC back in 1986. The show told the story of an extraterrestrial named Gordon Shumway from the planet Melmac. After he crashes into a suburban garage, the alien befriends a family who attempt to keep his existence a secret. It was odd, to say the very least.

If Johnny Depp stays in the business long enough, he may get an opportunity to play Gordon Shumway in a big-screen ALF adaptation. However, the former 21 Jump Street star revealed he doesn’t want to be acting 10 years from now. A lot of this apparently has to do with the price of fame.

“Going somewhere where you don’t have to be on the run or sneak in through the kitchen or the underground labyrinth of the hotel. At a certain point, when you get old enough or get a few brain cells back, you realize that, on some level, you lived a life of a fugitive,” he explained. - Inquisitr


UFO light show & helicopters

Dallastown, PA - 1/20/1995 - unedited: I was 15 years old living in Dallastown, Pennsylvania. It was a Saturday evening, myself and several friends were walking along the back streets north of the main road with a great view of the hills on the other side of the valley towards York. I dont recall what got our attention but we watched several bright lights hovering and slowly moving around over the hills on the horizon. At first we thought they were just distant airplanes with there landing lights on. But, after watching them for over 30 minutes, we realized they were flying the same pattern over and over again. The larger brighter white light would fly in slowly from the west to the east and hover in a certain spot. A dimmer smaller light would come in from the east to west more quickly and at a higher altitude, then fly slowly as it got closer to the first light. At some point when they got too close, the larger brighter light would fly off very quickly back to the west and the dimmer smaller light would shoot straight up and disappear. The cycle lasted about 2 minutes each time with about 5 minutes in between.

We watched this continue over and over again. It went on so long that we had time to get more neighborhood kids out there and even run into my house and get a camera from my mother, who didnt care as much about it as she did getting to sleep for work the next day.

At this point there are about 6-7 of us kids watching these lights replay the same cycle repeatedly when 3 low flying helicopters flew over our town heading towards the lights. They were close enough when they flew by that we could tell they were the big kind with two rotars on top but since it was dark I couldnt tell you what color they were. Each had a strobe on it which we could see as they went over the hills and formed a triangle around the area where the lights were. The helicopter strobes hovered there about 10 minutes and the lights stoped coming so we all got disapointed thinking they scared them off. But, just as suddenly as before, the two lights started there cycle again. We took a bunch of pictures, most of hat rims, fingers, and friends joking around, the only one that turned out was just a blob of light.

About an hour and a half after all of this started it ended with a final cycle of the pattern that was different from the rest. This time, with the strobes from the three helicopters framing the scene, the brighter bigger light came in slowly from the west heading east and came to rest at a hover in its usual spot. The smaller dimmer light came in more quickly from the east heading west and at a higher altitude. As it got closer to the brighter light, it slowed down. Then, we saw a small pulsing red light come out of the dimmer light. The small pulsing red light connected with the larger brighter one. At this point the dimmer light shot straight up as usual. But, when the pulsing red light connected with the bright light, sparks like fireworks started shooting out of it and it darted off down and west. It was very bright and startling, all of us jumped back, some had the instinct to run away a few steps, one girl even fell backwards. We watched for another hour but the lights never came back and the helicopter strobes eventually left.

The following Monday, there were stories in the local paper about people in the area spotting the bright light with fireworks coming out of the back shooting threw the sky. They were dismissed as meteor sightings. The thing that never sat well with me was, the sightings in the paper matched the description of how the bright light looked at the end of the light show but the witnesses saw it on Sunday around 5:15pm. What we saw was on Saturday around 7:30PM. I cant explain what we saw that night, and although i looked many times, I never saw anything like it again. I still have several newspaper clippings from that weekend today - MUFON CMS

Latest Politician To Say Aliens Exist

Click for video - Ammach Conference 2012 Simon Parkes Presentation

Simon Parkes, a city councillor from the U.K., has joined former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer in claiming aliens exist and visit Earth.

But Parkes, who sits on the Whitby town council, makes Hellyer seem positively believable.

Parkes, who is set to star in a new documentary on alien abductions, told the Northern Echo that he has fathered a child with an alien. In fact, Parkes says he has sex with an extraterrestrial he calls the "Cat Queen" four times a year. In case you're wondering, the kid's name is Zarka.

Unsurprisingly, Parkes says the relationship has put some strain on his marriage with his human wife.

Parkes' belief in aliens is well-documented. In the past he has told stories of abduction and claimed that his real mother is a 9-foot-tall alien with eight fingers. He says he was first contacted by extraterrestrials while he was still in the womb.

Parkes appears in a number of videos on the YouTube channel Underground Video (UK) Research and Archive Pirate Radio, where he and others describe their very-alleged experiences with aliens. In one clip, Parkes is hypnotized in an attempt to access repressed abduction memories. The video is part of a series of interviews done with the Anomalous Mind Management, Abductee, Contactee Helpline Project, a British group devoted to work with those who have (very purportedly) been kidnapped by aliens.

The attention for Parkes comes on the heels of former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer's testimony before six former congressmen at the Citizen Hearing On Disclosure in Washington D.C., in which he asserted that at least four species of aliens have been visiting Earth for thousands of years and that extraterrestrials are at this very moment working in concert with the U.S. government.

Hellyer's statements went viral. HuffPost Canada's story on his comments currently has more than 12,000 Facebook likes.

Do you think politicians speaking out about aliens is evidence that they really are visiting Earth? Or are politicians the last people you're likely to believe? Share your thoughts in the comments below. - THP

Police called to nearly 100 reports of aliens, monsters, werewolves, zombies and witches

Notts police have seen nearly 100 reports of sightings of aliens, monsters, werewolves, zombies and witches over the last three years.

The most calls asking for police to attend reports of scary creatures come from St Ann's and Sneinton, with 24 reports in 2012, according to a Freedom of Information request.

After St Ann's and Sneinton which have clocked up 43 'monster' calls over the last three years, the second most spooked area is Carlton and Netherfield, from where eight calls have been received by police over the last three years, followed by Canning Circus where seven calls were received.

Jessica Gladwin owns Dusk Till Dawn ghost-hunting company, which is based in Chilwell. It organises tours of haunted venues throughout the UK and people who go along regularly report that they have seen some sort of paranormal activity.

Mrs Gladwin said she thinks that people are becoming more and more open-minded about other-worldly beings.

She said: "I personally saw a ghost in 2010 on one of our tours at the Galleries of Justice.

"It was a man, with a horrible grimace on his face, just staring at me. Usually for a spirit there can be a horrible smell, like sewers, and that happened before he appeared.

"I have seen an increase in the number of people susceptible to seeing spirits because people seem to be coming more and more open minded. I'm not surprised that the police have seen an increase in reports."

Over the last three years no one has been charged with wasting police time in relation to any of the calls referring to other-worldly beings in Notts.

Inspector Andy Hyslop of Notts Police said: "Some of the figures could be misleading as they are without context. For example, there have been occasions where reports including the word 'witchcraft' have been made by a persistent caller who was suffering with mental health issues.

"Another caller who made two calls relating to the term UFO had alcohol and mental health issues.

"In another example, we had records of the word ghost being used but some of those were reporting burglaries in which the word related to a brand of perfume or bicycle which was taken."

He added that Notts Police made sure they were responding appropriately.

"It would not be safe to have a non-attendance policy for these types of incidents as some may be mental health related or genuine concerns from potentially vulnerable persons," he said.

"The National Standards of Incident Recording place a responsibility on the force control room to assess threat, risk, harm, identify repeat victims and vulnerable victims and we in turn then assess whether attendance is required and grade any response according to our Nottinghamshire Police Graded Response Policy."
