Gorightly also journeys to various UFO conventions, and even the Burning Man Festival, and shares his perspectives. He also gives us a taste of his unique Blogcast Internet radio show, "Untamed Dimensions," and the revelations shared there about a possible occult secret society involvement of Hollywood actress Tuesday Weld. Gorightly writes with a zany, high weirdness style, but glimpses of his personal history that he shares in the book reveal that he is in fact a true believer, whose life was transformed forever by conspiracy revelations while in community college, and by a remarkable UFO experience he underwent while growing up in Fresno. So the book can also be viewed as a highly personal journey of spiritual awakening, even as the author seems often to mock even the concept of spiritual revelation.
As a sampling of Gorightly's wide ranging work over the last two decades, "Happy Trails to High Weirdness" is a very good place to start.
And what I love about Gorightly is that he has a certain fearlessness in his writing and research that is frequently laced with humor and hipsterisms that the chicks dig. I mean, this cat even recorded an album a couple of years ago called Transmissions From a Dying Planet, complete with flying saucer and crop circle on the album sleeve and song titles that include "Human Stew" and "Ouija Board" (no, not that Morrissey tune).
And I dig `em too. With his latest, Happy Trails to High Weirdness, available in Kindle and paperback editions from Feejee Press, Gorightly takes the reader on a personal journey through the odd places around his home state of California and in the surrounding Southwest region.
Gorightly, who was first introduced to conspiracy-tinged crackpottery back in the early 1980's via a lecture on the CIA's alleged involvement in the JFK assassination, realized this was his calling, leading to writing gigs with Steamshovel Press, Paranoia magazine and The Excluded Middle. And it has been a life, he says, that has been "infinitely richer and wackier."
Again, Gorightly is a seemingly happy and content crackpot who knows his stuff.Read more ›
I loved the coverage of Jeff Turner and his " Psychotronic machine" A man obsessed with the pop star .Tiffany. Containes the best tin foil head type of picture I have ever seen.
The coverage of the movie star Tuesday Weld was actually quite disturbing.
We find that
Anton LaVey established the Church of Satan in San ... LaVey described his Satanic Bible dedication to Tuesday Weld ?
Tuesday Weld's r connection to everything?
Tuesday Weld High Priestess of The Illuminati will kick your ass.

Pilgrimage to Brunswick Shrine is covered with respect in this book!
More more weirdness with actual locations to go.
Adam Gorightly is an author who I find both amusing and informative. I have read quite a few of his articles on the internet, but to actually hold his newest tome in my hands was a treat I've long anticipated. Happy Trails to High Weirdness is a collection of essays and interviews gleaned from his many years as a "crackpot historian". Anyone interested in conspiracy and odd coincidence will appreciate this book, and my only complaint is that the hike was over too soon. I look forward to more episodes from one of my favorite commentators on the absurd and the unexplained.
