People are absolutely addicted to the new, intense mystery on Netflix




By Paul Moore

You’ll be thinking about this for days.

A large part of the appeal of Stranger Things has been its reverence and love for other film but earlier this month, Netflix added a new TV show that’s drawing comparisons to the events in Hawkins.

We’ve kept our eyes on Dark for quite some time now – the original trailer was great, as was the second one – and while the plot does resemble the first season of Stranger Things, this is very, very different.

The plot revolves around the disappearance of two kids in the German small-town of Winden. The investigation ultimately opens abysses that turn the concept of time on its head. The question is not who has kidnapped the children… but when?

If you love shows that invite you to ‘go down the rabbit hole’ and theorise over for days

How Mystery of Mountain Bike Pioneer Mike Rust’s Death Was Finally Solved

The Hall inducted Rust in 1991.

Mike Rust leading the pack.

Here’s the site’s Rust biography:

A native of Colorado Springs, Mike grew up in a large family (5 brothers and 1 sister). He began building bicycles at an early age; his first was when he was in the seventh grade. This bicycle had a cruiser frame, sturmey-archer 3-speed hub, 40 degrees laced to a 36 degree 26 x 1.75 rim, 3-speed stick shifter and a banana seat.

In 1965, Mike built a mountain bike with a stingray frame, 20-inch wheels, knobby tires (front back), flat handlebars and a leather saddle, which he launched off the front porch. His next bicycle was a used French 8-speed with 2 chainwheels and a 4-cog free wheel to which he added “curldown” dropbars.

After a 5-year romance with his motorcycles, Mike rediscovered bicycles, became a USCF licensed racer

SCOUTING AROUND: Mystery Machine adds to parade fun

   Anyone who went to a parade this weekend knew where Scooby-Doo was, as the Mystery Machine rolled through both Andrews and Murphy’s parade routes. The Mystery Machine is a 1973 Ford van, just like the one from the cartoon. Robert Hamilton was owned the van for nearly 30 years.
   “It wasn’t always a Mystery Machine,” he said.
   About six years ago, when The Learning Center charter school in Murphy was planning Halloween events, the school was going to get a van to be the Mystery Machine, the vehicle the gang of crime-solvers use in The Scooby-Doo Show. Hamilton said he already had the perfect van in storage.
   Hamilton always built something for the school’s Halloween activities – his niece went to the charter – and was happy to get his van painted like the Mystery Machine. He enlisted help from Ground to Graphics to paint it

20 years later, baby’s disappearance still a mystery

TAMPA — The latest tip came through Facebook. A young woman wrote to Marlene Aisenberg that she could find no records or photos to document the first five months of her own life.

She knew about the Aisenbergs’ daughter, who vanished from a Valrico home 20 years ago.

Could the woman be baby Sabrina? She wondered.

In photographs, Steve and Marlene Aisenberg couldn’t discount a resemblance to their other two children, now in their 20s. It was enough for the woman to arrange for her DNA to be tested in a private lab, Steve Aisenberg said recently.

“Until we have more information, we’re cautiously optimistic,” he said.

But as they await word, Aisenberg said the couple tempers their hopes.

It is, after all, one more tip in a long list of leads. There are people who call and say they know someone who resembles Sabrina.

New German-language Netflix series Dark is the crime mystery time travel series you never knew you needed

New Netflix series Dark is literally two shows for the price of one. 

“There were two concepts we really liked,” creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese state ahead of the brand new Netflix series. “One was a crime series we developed for Channel 4 and another was a feature film,” creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese state ahead of brand new Netflix series. “So those two things were lying on the table and we were like, ‘You know what? Let’s mix it up.’ We pitched it to Netflix and they liked it.”

The series sees the lives of four families thrown into turmoil following the disappearance of two young children in a German town, an event which – through means that won’t be spoiled here – propels them across varying periods of time. Dark is the kind of series that is willing to show an adult in the 80s sharing

A crooked hat is key to Detroit-set murder mystery in latest from author Harry Dolan

When writing mystery novels, author Harry Dolan keeps track of two different things: what the reader thinks is happening and what is really happening. 

“You want to play fair with the readers as much as you can, so there needs to be clues about what’s really going on. But the clues can’t look like clues or they’ll give everything away. It comes down to control: You have to reveal things at the right time, not too soon or too late,” explained Dolan, 51.

A native of Rome, NY, currently living in Ann Arbor, Dolan is the author of the David Loogan mystery novels: “Bad Things Happen,” “Very Bad Things” and “The Last Dead Girl.” The first two books occur in Ann Arbor. 

His latest, “Crooked Hat,” is set in Detroit

Author invites public to solve DB Cooper mystery

Richard DeCample remembers the moment he saw one of the most famous faces in American history.

“I had hooked up to the airplane and I was under the wing, but I could look up and I could see him looking out, but I’m like, ‘What can he see?'” 

DeCample, a 72-year-old who lives in Renton, was referring to the man’s eye wear.  

“I mean he had pretty dark glasses on,” he said.

Forty-six years ago, DeCample was a ramp worker for Northwest Orient airlines.  And the man wearing dark glasses
