Ghosts And Gadgets: Communicating with the Spirits

Morbid Anatomy presents this short film by Ronni Thomas exploring Brandon Hodge’s incredible personal collection of planchettes and other devices used to communicate with the spirit world.

From his profile on the Talking Board Historical Society:

Brandon Hodge is a collector, author, historian, and the prevailing authority on automatic writing planchettes and early spirit communication devices. Long fascinated by the bizarre occult world of tipping tables, séances, Spiritualism, and ghostly encounters, Brandon acquired his first automatic writer—a boxed E.I.H. Scientific Planchette—nearly two decades ago. He has since traveled the globe documenting, collecting, and lecturing on the world’s rarest séance artifacts.

Talking Board Historical Society Launches

The Talking Board Historical Society, formed by Ouija historians Robert Murch and Brandon Hodge, launched it’s new Facebook page this week. They are already posting fascinating content, such as a spotlight on Rick “Ormortis” Schreck, who attempted to make his New Jersey home haunted by filling it with talking boards.

Though the group has just become official, they have been acting to preserve Ouija history since 2008. They erected a Ouija gravestone at the unmarked grave of original patentee Elijah Bond in Baltimore’s Green Mount Cemetery. They also successfully petitioned the city to recognize William Fuld’s factory on Hartford Ave, which Fuld claimed the Ouija board told him to build in 1919, as a historical landmark.

The Talking Board Historical Society is raising it’s profile in advance of OuijaCon, happening in Baltimore on April 23-25, 2015.

Follow the group on Facebook right here.
