RIP Dallas Gilbert

Sources have told me the extremely sad news that Ohio Bigfoot researcher Dallas Gilbert has passed away.

Dallas along with his best friend an research partner Wayne Burton, had been featured on their autobiographical documentary, “Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie.”

Dallas Gilbert

Sadly Wayne had lost his wife earlier this year, now he has lost his best friend.

Although some of Dallas’ evidence may not have stood up to some of the community standards, every once in a while he came up with some very interesting photos.

One thing that was always certain of Dallas however, he believed in everything he did and had a great big heart.

Every once in a while I would hear from Dallas and he was always so enthusiastic about doing research. That enthusiasm existed throughout his life and never strayed.

He will be missed. Our deepest condolences go out to his wife and family and to Wayne.

Keep on Squatchin’ my friend.

Yesterday, I spoke of Biscardi and Dyer.

Dallas and Wayne, well, they may not be everyone’s typical or mainstream Bigfoot Researcher, but they believe in what they are doing and what they are experiencing, so as goofy as people think they may be, they’re alright by me. They have a right to enjoy what they do, and they do. And I like that.

But let’s get  to the nitty-gritty here.  My take on Morgan Matthews.


Morgan Matthews

First of all his whole premise of finding Bigfoot researchers and following them around to satisfy his childhood wish to see if Bigfoot really exists is HOGWASH!

First the movie starts with Ivan Marx, proven hoaxer (just ask Peter Byrne and John Green) who happens to be Tom  Biscardi’s “Jedi Master.” Later you will see more clips from Marx’s movies including a RARE clip of Biscardi actually doing something in the field other than complaining about people.

Then Matthews picks on a number of representatives of the Bigfoot community. He devotes less than a minute or two to the very credible Bigfoot Discovery Museum and researcher Mike Rugg. Even less time devoted to the yet even more credible, Dr. Jeff Meldrum .

Biscardi scolding his girlfriend for making noise during his interview.

In one scene after Matthews asks Biscardi a question, Biscardi stops himself in the middle of answering the question to scold his girlfriend Joan. Matthews never returns to the question meaning to me as the viewer, Matthews never cared about the question in the first place except as filler.

What he really wanted was drama and “assholism.” 

Steveism:

Assholism” – The constant state of being condescending, narcissistic,  insisting on being right all the time and blaming everyone else for their shortcomings aka an asshole.  While everyone can be an asshole at times, especially myself included,  It is the constant that applies in the situation of Dyer and Biscardi.

 

Matthews picked on, at least a couple of easy targets that being Dyer and Biscardi. If  you don’t think that was planned it was. Biscardi in 2010 had been bragging about traveling with the BBC to his contacts around the country.

Time for a hoax debunking sidebar…

Another thing we called correct here on this blog which the movie proves correct, that being of the Dyer shoot dates.

At the expedition time with Dyer, we see Dyer in his mocked up Suburban. He owned that vehicle when he lived in Texas, which was 2010-2011. In 2012 he was in Florida and left after domestic violence allegations where he relocated to Nevada around June or  July from what we can surmise. This earlier time coincides with the 911 call in the movie placed by the homeless folks.

Here’s a cap from the movie depicting Dyer’s plates which were from… TEAXAS!

(Above) Texas plate and his Suburban place this circa 2010 – 2011.

What people who supported this hoax, or chose to believe in Dyer, don’t know is that he has left an indelible footprint of his movements on the internet.  Being a former PI it’ was pretty easy to follow along with Dyer just being Dyer. 

 

Let’s face facts. Most researchers including Wayne and Dallas, act with restraint and like gentleman around filmmakers, news media, documentarians. The two narcissists / sociopaths here cannot restrain their true nature. Again easy targets.

In my opinion and I think if people really think on it they will agree, that  if Matthews had a true interest in the topic, and had at least a good R&D unit, he would have stayed clear of at lest two of the three groups he followed. But instead he sought them out… what does that tell you?

I don’t think he was trying to destroy the community as a whole or even mock the community as a whole, he was trying to get the goat of the three and actually ended up only really zinging one, that being Biscardi. You can tell Matthews just did not like Biscardi at all.

And I think the feeling was mutual, because first Biscardi never spoke of his BBC misadventure to any of my contacts after the jaunt, and certainly he hasn’t been promoting “Shooting Bigfoot,” on his website which as a true “media panhandler” that he is, comes as a complete policy reversal.

Steveisms:

“Media Panhandler:” – calling the media to announce you are in town, even though you haven’t even investigated, or looked at a single piece of evidence. Common to people who exhibit assholism, because of their narcissist mannerisms.

 

 


Chris Noël acting like he is apologizing but is being disingenuous

 

Now by this point, if you still believe in ANYTHING Rick Dyer has said in the past without any hard evidence to back it up, well…

One particular post by Chris Noël kind of turned my head a bit… (My Comments in Yellow) 

“Here is my current viewpoint on the matter.

Evidently, the "whole thing" was not a hoax, as many have claimed. 

(BASED ON WHAT EVIDENCE?)

But by the same token, it appears that I was wrong in believing that Dyer killed a Sasquatch on the night in question, for which I apologize. 

(APOLOGY ACCEPTED)

As we can see by the footage, however, Dyer did shoot (or shoot at) one from very close range, the same one that then retaliated against Morgan Matthews.

(OKAY…YOU ARE BACK TO SAYING IT”S REAL BASED ON NO EVIDENCE…SO YOU”RE NOT REALLY APOLOGIZING)

Dyer was so close to achieving his goal on 9/6/12 that when he failed, his frustration led him to simply go ahead and pretend that he had succeeded, no matter the cost to others. Either that or he returned to the site and killed one at a later date.”

(OMG REALLY? )

                                                                       –Christopher Noël March 25th, 2014  YouTube

 

Now we have an additional predicate on Cryptomundo.com with his repeat of the above he wrote on the YouTube site…

“In the wake of the other night’s broadcast of “Shooting Bigfoot” on BBC Channel 4, here is my current thinking…”

                                                                          — Chris Noel (Cryptomundo March 26th, 2014

Say what???

Noël was with Facebook Find Bigfoot’s Jon Foss and Jim Larrinaga the night “Shooting Bigfoot” appeared at the Hot Docs Film Festival in Ontario, Canada…

on April 30th, 2013!

As you know we had a contact in the theater the night it was premiered at HotDocs… here’s the pics that were posted with our post of April 30th, 2013 entitled, Survey Says: HOAX.

Pictures posted on April 30th, 2013. 

Only after the masses have seen it almost a year later than Noël viewed it,  is he “rethinking” “apologizing.”

I call shenanigans.  Now with his statement he is just fence sitting on something that has been put to rest, because he really can’t admit he was wrong.

An with that, how can we believe in what Noël writes in the future about anything knowing he just can’t face facts and the truth?

noel_thumb1

(Above) Is this a characteristic of being a truthful journalist?

Furthermore not only was I disappointed in his rationalization of this hoax, but also how he was, is and continuing to handle this hoax.

I was utterly disappointed and shocked when this event occurred, as his friends as he calls them had been outted long before I mentioned their true names on this blog.

I still await an apology for that affair from him, but am expecting that not any time soon. Remember it seems arrogance has replaced what a real man, heck a real community leader, in some of these folks. 

Robert Lindsay actually called a number of researchers and conceded defeat, apologetically. Shows much more manhood (not gender specific but human specific) than what we have seen from the folks still trying to cling to hope.


No comments from the felon?

Anyone heard from Allen “Musky Allen” Issleb lately???

Yeah that’s enough said on this topic!


And Finally Dyer himself…

While he gives us the peace out…

blogger-image-1268504573

We gave him a peace out months ago… (this guy must have a man-crush on me or something he’s always imitating me!) )

peace

Usually when a sociopath writes an accusatory series of statements, there is a lot of inward reflection… (Again my comments in yellow)

“Haters come in all sizes all different shapes from all nationalities. These people thrive on pain and misery because their personal life is full of it.

 (FUNNY YOU PUT YOUR FAMILY IN HARMS WAY AND OUT ON THE STREET TO PROMOTE A HOAX. WHO THRIVES ON PAIN?)

They come from broken homes or maybe these people we’re made fun of all their life . Most haters are single living by themselves or at home with parents.

(HEY ISN’T IT YOU WHO GOT EVICTED JUST FIVE OR SIX DAYS PRIOR TO THIS POST?  AS A KID DIDN’T YOU STUTTER AND CLAIM TO HAVE BEEN PICKED ON?)

Some haterS are overweight and even hate themselves. All haters hate their lives and and are so lonely they have way too much time on their hands, these people aren’t members of any clubs or very sociable.

(YEAH RICK, OR FROM WHAT  I SAW IN THE MOVIE, “MR. HUFF AND PUFF,” YOU’RE NOT ANY EXAMPLE OF PHYSICAL FITNESS EITHER. AND YOU KEEP CLAIMING TO BE A RESEARCHER MASTER TRACKER, ETC, YOU SOUND LIKE THE ONE THAT WANTS TO BELONG TO SOMETHING YOU’RE NOT PART OF?)

But give them a keyboard in the computer and no consequences for their actions. They feel empowered. But make no mistake they would never come out from behind the safety of their keyboard!

(NEED I SAY JUST TWO WORDS TO YOU RICK…REMEMBER CALIFORNIA??? LMAO!!!)

This makes them very easily controlled.” (NO, IT MAKES YOU ALL TOO PREDICTABLE.)

There is no such thing as bad media. (YEAH THERE IS…ITS CALLED “SHOOTING BIGFOOT!”)

                                                                                  —Rick Dyer March 9th, 2014 on his blog

This man deserves no sympathy, no matter how pathetic he is. I have lost any empathy for what he has done to himself, not because of the hoaxes, but for the lies and attempts to destroy people lives, all of which has failed.

The only thing he has done is destroyed his girlfriend Rosa’s and his kids’ lives.

Yeah Rick… you’re a prize! What a sad example of a loser.

THE END

Till next time,

Squatch-D

Once again another review of “Shooting Bigfoot” hits the presses, this piece on from the DenofGeek.com, and once again high praise for the filmmaker, but a disappointment not having resolution to the final segment.

Capture

 

On Dallas Gilbert and Wayne Burton,

“Dallas and Wayne are two old men it is almost impossible not to feel sorry for. Dallas has been retired since an injury at work…Dallas’ wife is aware of her husband’s reputation (here the observation that he should ‘get a life’ is particularly tragic), and notes the deteriorating effect his behavior has had on their marriage.

The undercurrent of their situation is deeply sad, one of a small, recession-hit deep South town. The editing initially seems cruel, but Wayne is seen at one point giving money to a homeless woman he has known for years, highlighting the benign nature of the pair.”

On Tom Biscardi who gets the brunt of the review,

“The same cannot be said for Tom Biscardi, a man who has been making documentaries about Bigfoot for years. He’s a monstrous rampage of a man, making Alan Partridge and David Brent look restrained…It is possibly that Biscardi is a sociopath. His reactions to events certainly suggest so, and he certainly has absolutely no idea how he comes across on camera.”

 

And Finally on Dyer,

“Finally, we meet Rick Dyer. He and an accomplice were involved in a recent hoax that incriminated Biscardi, so we’re advised not to trust him…

A young man who appears several times soon becomes deeply creepy, and it is implied that he and Dyer might be involved in trying to freak Matthews out. Ultimately, the denouement is weirder and more provocative than I had initially anticipated.”

On the film itself,

“Shooting Bigfoot might not feel entirely trustworthy, but it is entertaining. Whether or not it is honest is another aspect that’s up for debate, and raises questions about documentaries in general. Are we really expecting our presenters to be entirely truthful, when fabrication can enable them to get a better response from their subjects? Are their subjects the people they are interviewing, or the people who are watching?”
