Mark Borchardt’s The Dundee Project

Meet the unusual attendees of a small town Wisconsin UFO festival who have been watching the skies and communicating with extraterrestrials for decades.

Filmmaker Mark Borchardt, subject of the 1999 documentary American Movie about his struggle to produce an independent horror film with friends and family, returns with his first short film in over 20 years. The Dundee Project is a 19-minute doc that examines the unique characters who populate a local UFO hotspot in Dundee, Wisconsin.

Strange things have been happening around the small town of Dundee for a long time. Located in the heart of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, the area draws hundreds of thousands annually for it’s bountiful hiking, fishing, and camping. But for decades, visitors and residents alike have been baffled and sometimes even frightened by oddly-shaped objects in the sky over Long Lake, lights in the watery depths beneath, and numerous other unexplained phenomena like lake monsters and wolfmen.

In 1988, following a particularly bizarre incident in which reeds were found flattened and woven into a circular formation thick enough to walk on without falling through into the water, tavern owner Bill Benson and the late Robert “UFO Bob” Keuhn decided to host a gathering where everyone could share their experiences.

Decades later, UFO Daze is still held every year on the third Saturday in July. Believers and skeptics alike gather at Benson’s Hide-a-Way, the “UFO Headquarters,” to enjoy a cup of spiked green punch and wear artfully crafted tinfoil hats.

The Dundee Project

The Dundee Project opens with Borchardt’s drive north into the hinterlands (passing right behind the Cult of Weird hive along the way) as he recalls in voice-over about learning of the festival on the “sad, infinite wastelands of cable television.”

He first attended UFO Daze in 2001 after discovering it was within driving distance of his hometown of Milwaukee. “I consulted the charts and realized that it was practically in my own backyard,” he says.

He brought his camera along and filmed a series of interviews with the festival’s curious participants as he returned year after year to what he calls “a lakeside haven for the thirsty and the curious.”

Mark speaks to several attendees who have personally witnessed extraterrestrial activity, but the primary reason to watch are his conversations with UFO Bob. Bob was a radio personality who used his show to transmit messages to extraterrestrials. The same ones, apparently, who tune in to Green Bay Packers games.

Bob is even in direct communication with a female alien named Eveata whom he refers to at one point during the film as his girlfriend.

Mark doesn’t seem to buy it, prodding Bob with questions that challenge his claims. My favorite moments occur in the outtakes and deleted scenes (thankfully included in both DVD and digital download formats), with Mark’s frustration over Bob’s unshakable beliefs. This is particularly evident when Bob informs Mark that aliens “tampered” with a photo of a UFO over Benson’s that Mark feels is obviously digitally manipulated.

I’ve spent the last several years researching the phenomena around Long Lake, including several recent expeditions to the area and a hike to the top of Dundee Mountain, an ancient glacial formation at the southern end of the lake that some believe is the origin of the unusual activity. I even attended the 30th annual UFO Daze in 2018. I haven’t seen anything myself, but it doesn’t really matter. Whether it’s actually aliens or just hi-tech trickery (I’ve heard rumors of hoaxes perpetrated during UFO Daze) the evidence is irrefutable to the inhabitants of Benson’s, who sit in their lawn chairs at the edge of the lake patiently awaiting visitors from outer space.

As UFO Bob says, “What we’re seeing out here is there.”

The Dundee Project is part humor and part mystery, guaranteed to either fuel your conspiracy theory-fueled paranoia or leave you scratching your head in bewilderment.

Either way, keep looking up.

Pilot spots UFO hovering at 7,000ft over Las Vegas using night vision goggles

A PILOT’S incredible encounter with a UFO 7,000ft over Las Vegas has been caught in an audio recording.

While flying the Mercy Air 21 helicopter on Sunday, the pilot detailed how the unidentified object was hovering some distance away from his position.

However, the object was only visible through his night vision goggles.

During the radio exchange between the pilot and an air traffic controller, the man shared the bizarre sighting while flying over Las Vegas, Nevada, US.

He said: “Just to advise, it looks like I have some sort of object over the southern hills area looks to be about 7,000ft, could be a balloon or something along those lines.

“It’s unlit so just advise.”

The radio controller replied: “Okay, I’m not seeing anything in that area but that’s not to say there’s something not out there.”

“I can only see it, I’ve got night vision goggles on, I can only see through the goggles,” the pilot replied.

The seemingly amazed controller answered: “Ooh, that’s awesome.”

There were no details provided in order for a further investigation to go ahead.

Mercy Air operations base – where the helicopter flew out of – told Air Methods headquarters not to provide comment or allow access to the pilot who was talking on the radio, The Drive reported.

YouTube conspiracy channel Secureteam10 uploaded the video yesterday, proving popular after gaining some 84,000 views.

One person claimed: “More and more people are coming out and putting their jobs on the line.

“We might be getting somewhere.”

Another added: “Las Vegas is around the Area 51 so I think its a UFO/Aliens.”

“It was invisible camouflage they are way smarter than us but not smart enough for night vision.” a third claimed.

The sighting remains a mystery.

“Between us”: Aliens from other dimensions visit us

Have you ever had a chill running down your back, fear, or cold sweat before a disturbing presence that is close, but you do not see, and do not know how to explain at that time? 

Aliens from other dimensions

Anyone will tell you that they are ghosts that hover around you. But do not forget the idea that it can be something that goes beyond that insubstantial thing that can be an entity of that nature.

What would you think, if we told you that there may be specters of other alien dimensions, leaving aside ghosts-entities that may be relatives or friends who died and appear in dreams or perhaps feel their presence intuitively?

And that we are, without knowing it, before space-time anomalies that allow the entrance of spectra of alien dimensions where their appearance is not appreciated by our eyes.

Suppose that these spectra of other alien dimensions can move around our environment, generating stress, and of course fear.

But, have you ever heard footsteps in your house when no one is present, or inexplicable noises such as banging or strange sounds. You can be subtle or quite noisy.

Doors that close inexplicably. Or you hear that they open and close. Go to the room, it is open or closed when you are sure of the position in which it was left. Or dining room or kitchen chairs that seem to have been moved.

Aliens from other dimensions

Of lights that go out and light themselves, and when you are not, you know that you left them in one way and you find them in another. Or as often happens with televisions, radios and other electronic devices.

The sensation of strange aromas or perhaps sounds on the walls without you finding an apparent cause, especially at night.

And it turns out you’re never a witness to the phenomenon when it takes place.

Who has not had the experience of not finding an object such as car keys? Surely they should be where always and disappeared. And time later, they reappear in the place where you put them first.

Or they do not appear for days or even weeks. And you find them at the least expected moment. The appearance of an inexplicable and fleeting shadow, seen from the corner of the eye. We give them, by intuition, a vaguely human, or smaller form.

Strange behaviors of animals; dogs that bark at something that can not be seen, hide for no apparent reason or refuse to enter a place and cats that can look at something that crosses a room.

Will it be that negative emotions such as anger and greed, among others, attract them? Will they be free from these spectra if we behave with a higher spiritual level, or what is the same if our acts are peaceful?

But let’s go a little further from the occurrence of such strange events. And what if these can be some kind of signal or message that we can not understand? What do you think? comment below.

Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge Has a New History Channel Show About Aliens

“Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation” premieres in May

Former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge has executive-produced a new limited series for the History Channel about—you guessed it—aliens. “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation” is a six-part, one-hour series that will premiere in May. The series will feature interviews with Luis Elizondo, a former military official and Special Agent-in-Charge of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). (Elizondo is currently Director of Global Security & Special Programs at the To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, the UFO research organization co-founded by DeLonge.) Watch a teaser trailer below.

This is the second show about aliens DeLonge has announced in recent months. December 2018 saw the announcement of “Strange Times,” a fictional series for TBS based on DeLonge’s graphic novel of the same name. His last full-length album with Blink-182 was 2011’s Neighborhoods; he departed the band in 2015 and was replaced by Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio).
