Yep it’s been a while. That’s because it’s summer and I tend to work a lot, and this year had the added bonus of a couple of new events.

We did a preliminary scout on a piece of private property and several years of experiences by a family. So this month we go full tilt on the investigation so stay tuned!

Just recently we have just turned up another case in Vermont!


Things that go bump in the night!

First was the Boonies International Film Festival in Warren, Pa., where a documentary I was featured in debuted.

The documentary, I’ve Seen Bigfoot, debuted to a great crowd, on both the sneak peek night at the Alleghany Outfitters and at the Struthers Library Theater in Warren.

CaptureMe on the big screen and in Hi-Def with a Dolby Sound system.  

 

The film was from the witnesses’ perspective and is not your typical “debate” documentary. The soundtrack made the film was awesome and at times it makes you feel the palpable nervousness of some of the witnesses.

It will debuting on DVD and Blu-Ray and available for purchase at the Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo October 24th, 2015. 


Things that go bump in the night, part two!

Next stop on the summer tour, was ScareFest8 in Lexington, Kentucky, where yours truly was honored to be a speaker on my favorite topic of Sasquatch. It’s always great to speak to folks who aren’t in “the know” as many of us are or may not follow the topic as closely as some.

Great turnout for the “Bigfoot: Before Your Eyes” presentation I gave at ScareFest8.

 

It was nice having all seats filled and a few on the floor in back, knowing there were three other presentations going on at the same time. This shows, despite what we may think as the Bigfoot research community, the general public is still hungry for the topic.

From left to right: With Fact or Faked’s Ben Hansen, with Expedition Unknown’s Josh Gates and finally at the booth just prior to opening the doors on the last day.

I did get to catch Ben Hansen’s presentation. He’s the former FBI agent that heads up the team on SyFy’s Fact or Faked: The Paranormal Files. He spoke about profiling hoaxers and hoaxing.

Ben also ended his presentation about body language and facial expressions and how it would appear our President may have been fibbing or holding back when asked about UFO’s on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Fascinating stuff!

I enjoyed my conversations with Ben, and also a couple with Josh Gates from The Travel Channel’s: Expedition Unknown.

For those who know me well enough, I am also a Co-founder of a Paranormal group, and of course at the conclusion of ScareFest8 on Sunday we were treated to an impromptu one hour investigation to Bobby Mackey’s Music World.


Memory Lane…

Before the return home I took a quick detour to an old site famous site. A drive by the site of the Erickson Project in Kentucky, where the infamous “pancake eater” video came from.

Details of exact location of course will be omitted. And the pictures have been altered to avoid any direct connection to the actual property.

The house no longer looks like a research project house, but was a little surprised to see the old trailer still there. It now has the appearance of a quaint country home. Out of respect for the owners, I didn’t get out and knock, nor walk around and gawk. Just a quick two drivebys.

Of course the original owners the property claimed after they sold the property to Mr. Erickson’s property company, that the Sasquatch followed them to their new house, and were trying to get researchers to pay up for some action there, unbeknownst to Mr. Erickson via their cousin, who coincidentally tried calling a research colleague of mine, with offers when the “Erickson Project” film was trying to be released. Oh what a tangled web.


A slight change of pace…

If you’ve noticed a change of pace in me the past couple of years its for good reason. There has been tons of negativity in the research community over the last year. It seems when people don’t have a DNA project to kick around, someone claiming to shoot a Sasquatch or two, a buffoon yelling for Snapple, or a dope tripping over his own two feet because he’s wearing cowboy boots, and for that matter some crazy lady that looks like the “Marge” character on meth there seems to be a battle between critical thinking, the Paranormalists (aka Woo) and flesh & blood folk.

So here is some truth and parody…

Stinking Thinking

See the critical thinkers, think so much they find fault with everything so nothing is real and EVERYTHING gets shot down. These are the same folks that say we need science, but when science is applied, suddenly opinion takes precedence. Let’s change it to what it is…scofticism.

I get not seeing Jesus in the grilled cheese sandwich…I just don’t get all the casual dismissals. How bout some critical thinking on critical thinking. I think that would be in order. Or at least some critical thinking, on how to fix critical thinking from becoming the exact opposite of critical thinking. Don’t ya think?

On a serious note,  you CAN be a critical thinker without being a skeptic. Hell I always do that on investigations and analysis. It’s called keeping an open mind. It’s to the point though that people are infiltrating groups where they do not belong…example scoftics with the critical thinkers. And then the defense is, “oh it’s just critical thinking.” No it’s not critical thinking, its scofticism and its bullshit in many cases.

Moderation folks…moderation and it needs to be combined with an open mind, fairness and even at times compassion.  

NEXT…

Pardon me boys..is that the Chattanooga Woo Woo?

The “Woo” folks think so much they’ve come up with creative ways to say they’ve seen Bigfoot, or explain that why us super intelligent beings we are can’t catch a Sasquatch. (Obviously they are a super race more smart, cultured and empathic, though for some reason they smell bad, write and exchange gifts like second graders and don’t wear underpants!).

I still have to keep an open mind… I mean I run a ghost group too, I guess if it was a ghost of a Sasquatch, I’d be more understanding. But ITS NOT.

The Worlds according to Woo, it’s either a Bigfoot that has a  portal , wormhole, cloaks etc. or hitches a ride with a UFO. Not that I don’t believe in UFO’s, I just don’t believe they’re connected.

The  Bigfoot-UFO folks don’t necessarily agree with the Woo folks where Biggie cloaks out or checks out in the wormhole, portal or maybe even HG Well’s Time Machine itself.

This reads almost better than a Sasquatch braiding horse hair on a ranch in Texas which may come in a close second. Seriously folks, let’s look up Elf Knots, Fairy Braiding, Devil’s knots… read it here.

NEXT…

Keeping Score without a scorekeeper…

There is so many folks who don’t like certain other folks I am beginning to forget what folks that don’t like me. Sometime the folks that don’t like me, like folks that like me, that may not necessarily know that folks like me like them. Those folks usually end up liking me and disliking the folks that dislike me. Is that an oxymoron? You folks tell me.

Usually it’s the hoaxer folks that don’t like me… that’s okay. I try not to dislike any folks, except the hoaxer folks, and its not that I dislike folks of that sort, I just want nothing to do with those folks on a regular basis or any basis for that matter.

 

Here’s some people that do not like me… (They used to be the “A-String”)

On that note….these Bigfoots don’t like me either…

But for that matter, I don’t like those Bigfoots (Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Sasquatchesis whatever, either!

 
Finally…

Lighten up everyone. We’re in this for the fun of it. Make a resolution to patch up a lost friend by the end of the year. Life is way too short to have such a wonderful avocation turn into a battle-royal everyday.

None of this was meant to offend just offer a chuckle, perhaps change a thought process a bit…so everyone have a great day and good health!!!

A quick link…

Here’s a link to Stacey’s blog on what I had said in my previous entry pertaining to chicanery in hoaxing particularly this pic…

Here’s another gem posted last week…  so obvious that this is a costume of some sort, or a really bad pair of pajamas

Another gem found on Facebook of an alleged Bigfoot on trail cam. (Source: Facebook)

There seems to be a current trend of folks going onto Facebook in Crypto, Paranormal and Bigfoot groups which after a very brief period of time, offer up some recent “evidence.”

Hoaxers at best, trolls at worst, both dishonest nonetheless. Groups will be busy blocking these knuckleheads for some time.

All we can do is fight the good fight and not to become complacent nor apathetic to submitted evidence.

“All evidence should and must be researched

with veracity to sift out the gold from the dirt.”

Too often lately I have seen far too much hoaxing. For the longest time it was YouTube video hoaxes. They became so dominant after a while, some in the research field do not even glance at YouTube for potential video evidence any longer.

But the new rage lately it seems to me, has been Facebook hoaxers. Look at this fine example just posted by a Facebook user June 19th, 2015, found on one of the Social network group pages.

This was quickly brought to a screeching halt by a couple of users, particularly my friend Randy Filipovic who correctly recognized this as a manipulation of one of the Sequoia photos.

The originals are also thought to be a hoax created by up and coming filmmaker about ten years ago.

The original poster attempted to change his tune, to the old, “That’s what it looked like,” crap, but then why the manipulations added to it? Hogwash, the person was called out.

But if you think it is commonplace to Cryptozoology, my better half, and Co-Founder / Director of the Extreme Paranormal Encounter Response Team, Stacey Horton found this gem posted on one of her group pages.

Well I must be rubbing off on her, because within minutes she debunked this photo by this hoaxer by discovering a ghost app which uses this little boy.

Of course the “ghost” had been manipulated a bit, in this case the image was reversed, and added to the kitty’s pic.

Like everything on the web, it is caveat emptor! I always live by the trust, but verify mantra. I often tell folks that submit material, do not take offense to the rigid testing or questioning if they submit evidence. If everything passes it can only bolster and enhance their claim.
