Who’s profiting from Hank now???

It was reported to me sometime ago by then Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society Director, Eric Altman that a fellow had bought the mold from Dyer’s phony Sasquatch, “Hank.” And like many years ago of Biscardi trying to cash in on his own hoax by attempting to sell the “Bigfoot in a Freezer” costume for $250K visa vie Joshua P. Warren…

Now we have the man who bought the mold selling “Hank” Busts for just $250.00 a pop. You can see the EBay listing here.

A big thank you to Pinkfoot for bringing that to my attention!!!

Snips of the EBay listing.

I will admit Brett did an incredible reproduction. Just as an FYI he bought the mold from the man who made the original Hank for an undisclosed amount and not Rick Dyer. Would look kind of cool on my mantle. Like a hunter with a deer head, a hoax buster with a costume head. Damn it now I want one!

At least its not a bad guy profiting, so I have no problem with it.

However we did learn that “Hank” himself went to Marijuana dispensary in Colorado reportedly for $12K what allegedly Dyer paid for Hank. The report of this can be read here which follows tour promoter and ex-Team Track Andrew Clacy.

Much more to come as more of the Dyer “Money Train” is exposed. My guess is Hanky Panky now is being funded by the sale of Hank.

But much more to come as we may have the first lawsuit being brought to bear against Mr. Dyer on a funding deal… more details to follow on that.

Squatch-D

Tonight I just received a communication via my YouTube account from Jeff Patterson, aka the “Squatchmaster” about my analysis.

 

SM

Funny now he switches to the paranormal Bigfoot theory. He calls his audio for the first time, EVP’s.

He originally said nothing, about EVP’s and did not call them EVP’s…

“After retrieving my digital recorders that were set out around us,this was found on the one near where the Sasquatches were hiding.” 

                                                -Original verbiage found on the Squatchmaster video of the audio.

So hand in the cookie jar… change the story.

But we know what we really hear, including a transmit beep in the audio, and he knows he has been caught. Unfortunately his excuses should have been put out there prior to posting the audio but we know this is deflection and it comes a little too little a little too late.

Again the noises on that recording are artificially produced. Not crisp audio or even field audio with wind.

And Mr. Patterson doesn’t realize, I too am a Paranormal investigator and Demonologist as well.

It does not sound like any EVP I have ever caught either. Indoor or outdoor.

I call shenanigans… he got caught red handed!

Even more…. this audio clip was not from 2014 but recycled from 2011 thanks to some homework by Randy Filipovic which can be seen here on Bigfoot Anarchy.

Till Next Time,

Squatch –D

You know I have been sitting here quietly over the last few months saying very little to make enemies or to rattle cages.

My intent is not to make enemies but IS to rattle cages. Inevitably that leads to making me unpopular with some. But the “some” I am not worried about, because they have the same cult-like proprieties that the Dyer followers had.


The Squatchmaster?

First the analysis of “The Squatchmaster” Jeff Patterson’s YouTube Video he had put out based on alleged audio he had gotten off his recorders.

The first thing you notice, the audio quality seems a bit weird. It seems to me is sounds like a recording of a recording, with compression and an echo added into the mixer of the audio.

See I know a little about those effects and mixing, though I am no expert. But I was a front man and singer in a Heavy Metal band about 8 years ago.

A You Tube user, who claimed to have been an audio expert, suggested all we were listening to was speech in reverse.

That combined with the effects, we figured we give it an analysis and score one for the truth, we debunked it as a hoax. Because reversing the speech also accompanies all those other things such as compression and echo, you find on programs like Audacity, Wave Pad and the like.

Here’s the video we did on the analysis…

 

 

Latest analysis, debunking the “Squatchmaster’s” Audio as a hoax.

 

 

 

***

Apparently I wasn’t the first to come up with the idea of putting it to the test as I found out shortly after posting this.

My friend Randy Filipovic also dug a little deeper last night, not only pulling out some, now deleted, admissions from Patterson, but also reversed the audio on the “Squatchmaster’s” video as well.

Randy’s account can be read on his Bigfoot Anarchy Blog here.

Great to know everyone is on the same wavelength.                                                       - Steve

BF Deal???

Next is a Facebook group, I can’t take seriously. Someone added me to the group, probably the group’s leader Ed Waterman himself. Nonetheless… these are just a couple of the photos being posted there which to me defy any logic and turn serious research in a farce…

 

HUH.Ugh

 

So now this is one of two things. Complete delusion, or just plain lazy hoaxing. I mean, take a picture of the woods and say…see the Sasquatch?

Well Mr. BF Deal…two can play at this game…

Here’s me and my “Forest Friend” Marty…at least I think its Marty… haven’t quite figured out his complete name..so we call him Marty. He only cloaks for photos, video and can change his temperature colder so he looks invisible if someone has a thermal imager.

 

CameraZOOM-20140916123044351

Here’s Marty’s big internet debut. Can anyone see he’s kneeling down while he’s cloaked? That’s a huge ability, and only certain Forest Friends have that ability. He soon will become some human’s teacher.

Circled

Here’s Marty’s family. They are not allowed across the railroad tracks just yet, because they are having a bit of a problem figuring out what Railroad crossing signs are. I have a good friend in Sandusky, may just be able to help them out!!!


Now to a more serious note…

Look forward soon to seeing the return of Squatchdetective Radio.

From the Field…

 

DSCN3481

Prepping for the daytime scouting mission.

The field team was out a couple of weeks ago to a new area and we were quite surprised to obtain some audio, we are currently analyzing. The area was remote and terrain difficult.

We look forward to giving you some of the audio evidence sans the compression, echo and reverse effects and it will sound crisp and clear. Is it a Sasquatch we got?

I don’t know, but certainly not human.

Pictures will not contain red, yellow or magenta circles pointing out Sasquatch er..ah “Forest Friends” hiding in the bushes or cloaking. The only thing cloaked that weekend were my Smores… because I forgot the dang marshmallows.

Hi gang… after a much needed rest, I am slowly easing myself into operational mode.


Have to mention this…

First, I think everyone is shocked and saddened at the loss of Robin Williams, not only being 63 but in the manner in which he has passed.

Many folks don’t know this but when I was a teenager, I had a friend who committed suicide hours after basically saying goodbye to all his friends, talking to them one last time. I spoke with him about an hour and a half before he took a .357 to the mouth.  It gave me a prolific manner in which I look at suicide.

Robin Williams 7/21/51 – 8/11/14

Let’s all take a minute to remember those friends we have that struggle with depression, and the devastating toll it takes not only on them but their family members and friends. Let’s reach out to them and make sure they are “ok.”

And if they need help… stage your own intervention. Get them the help. I know in all circumstances this is not possible, but if this message saves one person down the road, it has served its purpose.


Announcements:

On June 24th, I began working again as a private investigator once again, and my area covers five surrounding states. So I am on the road constantly during the week but have access (unless I am in God’s country) to email, internet and social networking.

On July 2nd this year my apartment flooded due to the malfeasance of the property caretakers. So we immediately packed and made an emergency move which worked out for the best.

So now we are into a month of casual unpacking. Soon to be in the field with the Squatchdetective Field Team again, and happy to get the Massachusetts contingent up and running.

We’re finalizing some reports from Vermont, thanks to our man there, Frank Siecienski and help from author Paul Bartholomew.

Squatchdetective Radio will be returning sometime in October as both Chris Bennett and I are looking forward to getting back into the hot topics of the Bigfoot world, and I am toying with a new format as well.

Lot’s of nothing has happened since my “vacation,” but since I’ve been nosing around things have been popping up like crazy.

Strange…2 of our three stories of the day have a derivative of “falcon” in it.


Falcon Project gets funded…

Internet rumor has it that the Falcon Project, run by our friend William Allen Barnes, has gotten $250K in funding for 3 dirigibles.

That’s stupendous! and congratulations are in order if true for their dedication and perseverance of getting the project off the ground, both metaphorically and literally.

There’s our first Falcon….now off to a Falconer!


Standing’s last stand?

As we’ve tried to educate readers here over the last 8 years, Todd Standing was my second inductee into the Hall of Shame. Even the man who “found God,” was number three.

In fact Todd puts the man who “found God” to shame. He hasn’t been just a flash in the pan. He’s been consistent making headlines over the years and actually has been able to garner a little credo, via the Canadian Parliament (who quickly retracted), and “Survivor Man,” and has managed to get Dr. Jeff Meldrum to co-host a radio show with him.

Reason being, is… he’s a better actor than, “I found Jesus,” whose over the top performances and “I dare you attitudes,” amongst other severe sociopathic tendencies has made him easy to read.

Fact is Todd’s delivery and presentation is much more an act of scientific presentation than a Barnum and Bailey act as the previous.

Over the years, such as Todd’s “Puppet Face” where we’ve pointed out the anomalies on the shadowing of the branches, even so much as having a photographic expert come on Squatchdetective Radio to verify as much, the line at the bottom of the septum (nose), as well and let’s not forget “Blinky,” where we completely destroyed the idea that was a video, but part of a composite.

The following was presented to me by Daniel Falconer and Phil Poling. It is a critical examination of the Sylvanic bigfoot videos released by Todd Standing.

After reading such, it backs up many of the things we stated earlier over the years and has some other interesting analysis which rather slaps Standing right in the face, and it should be a cold shower to the “Standlings” aka Todd’s supporters.

Speaking engagement in October

Yes back to Chautauqua Lake this year for the weekend of October 24th –26th.

Different format and lineup this year, sans me of course, and we will be bringing Vermont Researcher Frank Siecienski (also who nabbed the Vt. Trail Cam Photo in 2010). Other speakers TBA as soon as I hear confirmation. 

Things are in the works so I will try to get them to you as fast as possible.

2013-CLBF

Meanwhile event organizer Peter Weimer once again is trying to petition the State and Federal governments to offer protection to the yet to be discovered species as a precaution… that petition can be found here and I encourage all to sign and add their name to the ever growing list of people calling for protection of the species.

A brief sidebar…

For the conference “poo-pooers” out there note, the speakers in this conference are not being paid for their appearance, only certain expenses are being covered.

We do this because we love to talk all things Bigfoot / Sasquatch meet and greet other researchers and most of all hear more encounter reports straight from the witnesses.

If occasionally somebody pays me for a speaker honorarium etc. I put that towards the costs of website, radio show production, my cryptid / paranormal library and most of all equipment.

I hope to see some of you there!!!

If you love being outdoors, camping, going into the woods and walking on trails, you may want to be extra careful and take some extra precautions.

 

tick

 

There’s been a new deer tick virus discovered in our area and this newly found virus may be deadly.

This virus, which has been found in Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer and Saratoga Counties, is called the Powassan Virus. It affects people faster than Lyme Disease. Some of the symptoms from The Powassan Virus include headaches, being lethargic, fever and drowsiness.

Researchers from the Wadsworth Center, New York State’s public health laboratory have been doing studies on this virus and have discovered that there’s a one in 20 chance that if a person is bitten by a deer tick, they’ll have the fatal illness.

In the story from News 10 ABC, it’s also been discovered that there’s an increase in deer ticks in our area. Some of things that you can do to help to prevent the disease is to use insect repellent, where long pants, especially in those wooded areas and tuck your pants into your socks.

We want everyone to be safe this summer.

The Center for Disease Control has this to say about Powassan Virus:

Symptoms & Treatment

Symptoms

  • Many people who become infected with Powassan (POW) virus do not develop any symptoms.
  • The incubation period (time from tick bite to onset of illness) ranges from about 1 week to 1 month.
  • POW virus can infect the central nervous system and cause encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and meningitis (inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord).
  • Symptoms can include fever, headache, vomiting, weakness, confusion, loss of coordination, speech difficulties, and seizures. 
  • Approximately half of survivors have permanent neurological symptoms, such as recurrent headaches, muscle wasting and memory problems. 
  • Approximately 10% of POW virus encephalitis cases are fatal.

Treatment

  • There are no vaccines or medications to treat or prevent POW virus infection.
  • If you think you or a family member may have POW virus disease, see your health care provider for evaluation and diagnosis.

Persons with severe POW illnesses often need to be hospitalized. Treatment may include respiratory support, intravenous fluids, and medications to reduce swelling in the brain.

Transmission

Powassan (POW) virus is an RNA virus that belongs to the genus Flavivirus. It is related to West Nile, St. Louis encephalitis, and Tick-borne encephalitis viruses.

Humans become infected with POW virus from the bite of an infected tick. Humans do not develop high enough concentrations of POW virus in their bloodstreams to infect feeding ticks. Humans are therefore considered to be “dead-end” hosts of the virus.

POW virus is maintained in a cycle between ticks and small-to-medium-sized rodents. In North America, three main enzootic cycles occur: Ixodes cookei and woodchucks, Ixodes marxi and squirrels, and Ixodes scapularis and white-footed mice. Ixodes cookei and Ixodes marxi rarely bite humans. Ixodes scapularis often bite humans and is the primary vector of Lyme disease.

There are two types of POW virus in the United States. The first type, often called lineage 1 POW virus, appears to be associated with Ixodes cookei or Ixodes marxi ticks. The other type, lineage 2 POW virus is sometimes called Deer tick virus, and is associated with Ixodes scapularis ticks. Both lineages have been linked to human disease.

powassan

Cases reported to CDC through 2001 – 2012

 

There is no specific medicine to cure or treat POW virus disease. Treatment for severe illnesses may include hospitalization, respiratory support, and intravenous fluids.

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!!!

Till next Time,
