Grabstein is well known for doing the voice of Courage in the popular Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog. Grabstein used a combination of paranoia and panic to make the voice of Courage authentic. Most certainly an appropriate animation for those of us who love the bizarre, the haunted, and the scary. Although, Courage would have much rather just sat on Muriel's lap than to fight off the monsters. One of the best cartoons ever is what WE have to say! Welcome Marty!
As a child growing up thorough out the late 70’s and into the early 90’s, Josh and his family experienced constant terror living in three haunted houses. Almost nightly Josh would witness a tall shadowy figure standing in his bedroom doorway as he tried to sleep, just standing and watching with glowing red eyes. Voices, shadows, ghostly figures and strange feelings would be common place in the different houses Josh lived in. Because of this it fueled his interest in finding out more about what these experiences are and what it could mean.
After doing some personal investigations by himself, Josh decided to form a group. The goal being, to get real evidence of the paranormal and to help those who feel they are experiencing activity figure out what is actually happening and what they can do about it. Because of their collective and shared experiences Josh, his father, Dave, and mother, Jan, all became paranormal investigators.
As the founder and lead investigator of the North East Paranormal Society, Josh has had the ability to do exactly what he set out to do, and to this day continues to be fascinated and amazed with what is captured on investigations. As well as enjoying the opportunity to give others answers and peace of mind.
Along with ongoing paranormal research, Josh and his team travel the northeast, going to different events and locations sharing the story of the hauntings that plagued his family. Their story also includes real documented evidence from the family’s personal hauntings, as well as some of the studied cases NEPS has conducted over the years.

Chris Di Cesare
"The Ghost Boy of Geneseo”
As a young college student, Chris Di Cesare's view of life was forever changed by a series of horrifying events in and around his dorm room: C2D1 at SUNY Geneseo. From early February through late April of 1985, he and his college friends endured what is now referred to as 'The C2D1 Haunting'. Apparitions sighted, disembodied voices heard, moving objects witnessed and frightening physical attacks all became part of the ordeal suffered by Chris - who quickly became the focal point of the haunting - and several of his college classmates. Long suppressed by the participants themselves, the extreme haunting eventually moved into the realm of ‘urban legend’.
An accomplished lecturer who recently appeared on Coast to Coast AM, Di Cesare has released his memoir, Surviving Evidence, (Dark Moon Press) which became an Amazon best seller, and offers a compelling first-hand accounting of the infamous extreme haunting from the person who found himself at its center … and survived it.
