Lyrics follow, so you can sing along!

 

"Dear Diary"

Goodbye Norma Jean

you should've known to stay away
If you think that Hollywood is tough, you should meet the CIA.
A couple pills and a couple drinks, we know just what they'll do
5:25 August 5th 1962.
 
Lancer wants to know the truth
pillow talk is treachery,
Beaten at the Bay of Pigs,
an embarrassing defeat
And he's shooting for the moon,
but it's all just a smokescreen.
 
Dear Diary,
what's wrong with me
slept with another Kennedy
Dear Diary,
So why tell me?
there's some kind of conspiracy
a marital transgression
a UFO confession
Dear Diary
can you save me
I'm just a liability
 
A crash in the desert,
Some creatures from long ways,
little people from beyond
gentlemen prefer the greys.
 
Flying saucer tech, well  I guess there's a cover up
You know these Massachussetts boys can't keep their rich mouths shut
 
Lancer wants to know the truth
pillow talk is treachery,
Beaten at the Bay of Pigs,
an embarrassing defeat
And he's shooting for the moon,
but it's all just a smokescreen.
 
Dear Diary,
what's wrong with me
slept with another Kennedy
Dear Diary,
So why tell me?
there's some kind of conspiracy
a marital transgression
a UFO confession
Dear Diary
can you save me
I'm just a liability
 
 
Dear Diary
I don't wanna lie
Dear Diary
I know I'm gonna die
Dear Diary
I don't wanna lie
Dear Diary
I know I'm gonna die

Tea talks to author and researcher Nick Redfern about his new book Secret Diary: UFO Conspiracies and the Mysterious Death of Marilyn Monroe, which follows Nick's investigation into a document that surfaced in the 1990s that suggested Monroe didn't kill herself but was murdered because she knew too much about government secrets, including UFOs. 

Tea and Heidi discuss weird news about a plague of Garfield phones, atomic honey, the magnetic claims of Dr. Tenpenny, and talk about the antics of Ed and Lorraine Warren, inspiration for The Conjuring movies. Plus trivia and the premiere of a special track by Sunspot inspired by the topic of Nick's book, "Dear Diary."

Tea’s Weird Week, S2 ep03: Lost in the Schroeder Books Vortex

Tea’s Weird Week, S2 ep03: Lost in the Schroeder Books Vortex

June 4, 2021

Schroeder Used Books and Music was an overwhelming cluttered and strange used bookstore run by an eccentric woman named Alma. It was shuttered in 2015 for fire code violations. Recently a new owner opened the store for a sale to try the overwhelming task of clearing the store out so he can rent to new tenants. Tea and Miss Information read some Yelp reviews of the store to give context, then Tea reports from the scene of the sale and books he found, plus our friend Alex C-Hayes reveals the ultimate rare item found in the store. Hint: it's one of the horcruxes of weird Milwaukee. 

In the news segment, Tea and Heidi talk about upcoming events they'll be at, the Rod of Iron Ministries, a sovereign citizen on a Dukes of Hazzard-style police chase, Pokémon (Got to shoot your ass), Unusual Mortality Events of whales, the acoustic sounds of John Hinckley Jr. and more. 

Plus Miss Information has new trivia, original music from Dan Hintz and Android138, and we close out with a brand new conspiracy-themed track from Xposed 4heads, "Kink in the System."

Tea’s Weird Week, S2 ep02: The Marvelous Miss Fit

May 27, 2021

Tea talks to Real-Life Superhero Denise Masino aka Miss Fit, star of documentary movie/webshow The Adventures of Miss Fit. Miss Fit has also rallied an annual charity fundraiser that benefits Saint Jude Children's Hospital for the last ten years. We talked about her life as a bodybuilder, entertainer, and all-around-person-who-kicks-ass. 

Then Heidi and Tea discuss Tea's award-winning article on citizen journalists, we revisit the topic of UFO disclosure, and talk about Real-life Superhero ShadowVision, who supposedly is Scottish and also alleges he is "hunting" a serial killer in Little Rock.

And then (Z-Z-ZAP!) new trivia from Miss Information and (POW!) we end by a song written and performed by one of Miss Fit's friends, Rock N' Roll (of the California Initiative) titled, appropriately enough, "Hero." Plus additional original music by Android138
