The EVP of Tom and Lisa Butler

The Butlers were invited to help Universal Pictures to help them market the movie, White Noise. For the DVD release party that was held in the famous and haunted Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the Butlers were asked to record for EVP in the hotel and play the resulting examples to the media. During that process, Lisa Butler recorded, "John Belushi" in the Lombard-Gable Penthouse. They later learned that Belushi lived in the hotel when he first moved to LA, and that he learned to love the old hotel.

The Butlers are often asked about the dangers involved in opening communication with the other side. All and all, recording for EVP is safe, but sometimes it is in the eyes or ears of the perceiver. In this case, they recorded the EVP, "Prepare to die," when they asked, "Do you not want people here?" The words are spoken by what sounds like a southern gentleman about to engage his opponent in a duel, and the Butlers feel that the utterance being so dramatic, is more a humorous response than something that should be taken as threatening. This was recorded in the Levi House in Reno, Nevada.



"Prepare to die"


In an investigation of the Cal-Neva Resort at Lake Tahoe for the Dead Famous television series, the Butlers were able to record in the theater built by Frank Sinatra while he owned the casino. Several mediums had reported a threatening personality lurking at the back of the stage area. In that same area, The Butler recorded, "We keep looking for peace." Their sense is that it was spoken by one of the body guards who protected some of the famous personalities who visited there.



"We keep looking for peace"


On the Nevada Side of Lake Tahoe is the Thunderbird Lodge built by George Whittell. The Butlers have participated in a couple of media events there that included opportunities to record for EVP. In this example, you will hear the voice of a woman say, "Hidden morphine." The Butlers later learned that Whittell was addicted to morphine and his lady friend was a nurse who gave him morphine shots.

One of the bonus features on the White Noise DVD includes the Butlers recording in the haunted, Hollymont Castle in Beechwood Canyon, near Los Angeles, California. The Butlers recorded "Betty's in there" as they approached a bedroom. The Bedroom is at the top of the same stairs near which an orb was seen in the DVD bonus feature at about three minutes. As you can see in the picture below the white arrow is pointing at the black, fussy puff. It is shown a little clearer in the inset. The orb was rapidly moving and was only in a few frames.

When the Butlers visited Alcatraz, they recorded for EVP at a place from which San Francisco can be seen through a barred window. The city is beautiful and seemed very close. The Butlers knew it must have been a terrible torture for the inmates to see freedom so close, yet so far away. Lisa said as much while recording, and captured this voice saying, "Think Positively ... instantly away." The Butlers has expected to encounter angry and confused entities, but instead, recorded many positive remarks, such as this one. They even recorded the voices of one of their etheric helpers saying the name of Paolo Presi," an Italian ITC researcher. This is followed by a second voice saying, Alexander.
