"He’s done it again, folks, put out a piece of art and work that will leave you speechless and thinking harder than you have in awhile. Taylor’s second book…is probably more highly-anticipated than his first book and will have your hair standing on end, chills down your spine while making you laugh hysterically at some parts…A well-written, in-depth, intellectual and bone-chilling piece of work that will go down in history as one of the best books written by a metal singer of all time."

A copy of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven was provided to me by Da Capo Press for review purposes.
'Thinking back now, it was really just a creepy house that creaked and shuddered, but to impressionable nine-year-olds, it was the vacation spot of the devil itself.'
To give you all a proper introduction for those who are unaware, Corey Taylor is the lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour and the author of Seven Deadly Sins. 'A Funny Thing Happened' is a worthy follow-up novel and another tantalizing look into the mind of an incredibly interesting man.
At face value I was expecting 'A Funny Thing Happened' to be a random smattering of ghostly encounters he has had over the years, and it is, yet it's a fascinating exploration into the reasoning behind ghosts. His scientific details will definitely get you wondering because his hypotheses generated some genuinely possible answers. Surprisingly intellectual and educational, 'A Funny Thing Happened' is definitely a conduit that spurs some serious debates regarding the existence of the paranormal.
'Cynics will claims that my "eyewitness accounts" can easily be described as "flights of fancy," or "the trappings of an overactive imagination." [...] the one I hate even worse than those others: "You saw what you wanted to see and nothing more."
Let me f***ing telling you something: I did not want to see this s***, and I still do not want to see this s***.'
A Funny Thing Happened is written with a humor that is harsh and biting yet oh so entertaining. This is a man that isn't afraid to speak his mind yet is graciously considerate of others beliefs. He's mindful and respectful of others beliefs regardless of whether or not he shares them. Simply put, he is a man of many opinions and isn't afraid to share... such as it should be.
'Belief is a gift you should cherish; knowledge is a gift you should never squander.'
This book is like one big discussion, all topics are left open to interpretation, without concrete facts, just mindful musings and hypotheses. It will definitely generate antithetical opinions, however, approach this with an open mind and you may find yourself actually considering the possibilities of an alternate opinion. Or maybe you'll remain a skeptic. Either way, this book will definitely leave you something to ponder.
Chapter by chapter, Corey Taylor takes you on a cross time, cross country, road trip of the ghosts he has encountered. He takes us into public and private places that not everyone has full access to. Corey collects ghost encounters like some folk collect expensive wine. He savors these stories like exotic treasures, laying them out for us all to vicariously sup at his table. He even has his own pet ghosts which reside in his humble abode (that is after leaving the dangerous ghosts from the last place he lived behind for the next owner to deal with). If you are open to the energies of the paranormal, then Corey's bumbling into ghosts, some of them just plain dark, will make you shake your head and ask, `what was he thinking?'
Sometimes he's been scared, really scared, but he keeps coming back for more. Granted not everyone sees ghosts... yet. He has been exposed to things he cannot explain, and has been working on a theory to explain his experiences. Unfortunately he is working on a one-size-fits-all theory which never accommodates diversity. He is chasing after an explanation of `why are there ghosts' and the real question, the question he never asks is; how come I can see then and no one else can? How come they keep on being drawn to me?
This is how you can tell you are opening to psychic gifts, hearing or seeing disincarnates, experiencing their energy first hand. They reside in the level of energy which is closest to our own dimension. Corey never makes that leap, because he never actually asks anyone who has professional experience with ghosts, however he does call for a national dialog. He even expects people to challenge him and welcomes that, perhaps he just likes a good fight, but nowhere does he create a forum for that dialogue to take place.
His pet theory is `intelligent energy', he mentions it a great deal, but if he studied Carl Jung he might find that Jung's theory of the collective unconscious shares many traits with Corey's thoughts. (The interesting thing for me is that I channel professionally. The being I channel is The Sophia. She describes herself as `intelligent energy,' the energy we use to manifest our desires, this could be something that Corey picked up from the `collective unconscious' when he was formulating his hypothesis.)
The advice he gives on how to handle a hostile energy is to go into raging, meltdown mode. Never do this. Corey believes that it is keeping `them' in line. The first thing is, he is mistaking a possession, for a haunting. Dark energies feed on anger, fear, sorrow, hate, jealousy and any other lower vibrational emotion. Dark energies aren't ghosts, they are their own individual category. They are often drawn to where ghosts hang out and then feed on the human emotions they find there. Drinking alcohol or doing drugs in these places allows dark energies a doorway into a human host. Entity Possession by Samuel Sagan M.D. is a really good tutorial on this with chapter after chapter of patient sessions, and an overall view of how dark entities come into being. (Also if you ever do pick up a dark entity, it is best to have your angels 'bind' it, ask them to do so, and they will. This way you can work through whatever issue has been brought to you and you won`t have a dark entity holding undue influence over you.)
NEVER go into a haunted space with anything but joy and love. Those are the highest vibrations that exist. If you do not know what you are dealing with, then you should find out first, before you get into a situation where you take home a permanent souvenir of your ghost hunt. Corey has a haunted big toe which he picked up while staying in a haunted mansion. It get's angry and turns red. (your big toe is your `destiny' the left is personal life, right is public life. Corey's anger gets in the way of his own destiny. Simple, but that is how energy healing works.) This is also why malevolent energies seek him out, they know they can manipulate him into exploding emotionally, then they get stronger.
Basically Corey Taylor is actively psychic. He has no idea what that means, or what to do with it. So he gathers a few of his friends every now and then, to hang out in abandoned buildings, hoping for a new unearthly experience to add to his collection of anecdotes. A good follow up book by someone who helps earth bound souls to move on is Wayward Spirits & Earthbound Souls by Anson V. Gogh, unlike Corey she knows what she's doing and gives practical advice which will help everyone involved. If you are having experiences like Corey is having, then look around and avail yourself to a good psychic teacher, who will guide you through the pitfalls of mastering your gifts. These are gifts, they will help you in your life's journey, on that I wish you well. If Corey ever does open up his public forum on ghosts and hauntings, let me know. Namaste.
I can't wait for his next project!
