A few weeks ago, I watched White Noise for the first time, and on the special features part of the DVD, they had a special on EVP: Electronic Voice Phenomena. Since EVP is an integral part of the movie, this special shows the research of the AA-EVP, a non-profit educational association dedicated to the support of people who are interested in, or studying EVP. EVP can be described as: "EVP are anomalous, intelligible speech recorded in or produced by electronic devices, and for which no currently understood physical explanations can account." In the special, they show how EVP works and actual recordings. Some skeptics believe that these are pre-recorded by DJs, or other radio interference but the AA-EVP claims that they use brand new tapes to record Voice Phenomena; this is documented on the DVD.
I have always been interested in paranormal activity, but never experienced it myself aside from weird, eerie noises I've heard. I have a friend who has had paranormal experiences, all in the same place (an old apartment building); she is the one person I would believe about this sort of thing because she is very skeptical. I am interested to know if any of you believe in ghosts/paranormal activity or have had any experiences?
