Quick Program notes

After taking some much needed time off from the blogosphere and had a lot of inner and outer reflections on our goals and studies here at Squatchdetective.com, some amazingly good things are beginning to happen and we are happily planning away at our 2015 research schedule now that this past winter has finally appeared to release most of its nasty grip upon us.

On another great note Squatchdetective Radio will soon be on the air once again as we have found a new home at BuzzSprout.com. Chris Bennett and I are quite excited to get back at it again.

Now..the beef of the day

Someone brought up a good point to me the other day. I have been blessed in my life with a terrific family in so much as they accept what I do, and actually either participate or take interest in what I do between Bigfoot Research and my paranormal thing I do over at ExPERT.

There are many reasons why people get involved in Bigfoot Research, Ufology or Paranormal Investigation. For some it wasn’t ever planned, just a chance encounter which immersed them in their particular topic. Others because of an inane curiosity which needs to be satisfied. Others for a thirst of knowledge. Whatever it is, we have all come together with at least one commonality.

The battle for acceptance of loved ones in what we do.

Where the problems and toils begin for many researchers, is when some in their family becomes judgmental and critical. In my “older age” I have lost much patience for such.

Again I was blessed to have a parent, as my father passed away prior to this long foray into the Cryptid world and Paranormal, that was supportive. My father however also introduced me to this world and had quite an open mind to such mysteries.

My family always told me my father would have been proud to see what I have accomplished thus far. I am very modest, but my family dotes a bit much that I have been on TV, written books and does something very exciting.

To me its just having fun, a passion, friendships and some level of excitement. I have always stated that if you turn a passion into a career, then that is a life fulfillment. Although it is not a full time career, it still dominates a lot of what I do in my spare time. I am blessed to have a girlfriend right along side of me in my endeavors.

If what you do brings you joy (in multiple senses), and brings joy to some others (which is what we generally try to do here and especially in the paranormal field by helping folks), then that, is a special life of fulfillment.

Unfortunately some families that fail to see their own shortcomings because of a close minded, or “all knowing” approach, or throwing the “God Card,” as I call it. And criticize and even at times mock their loved one. That is a failure on their part not only in their own lives’ fulfillment but an injustice to those that they claim to love. Love is unconditional so should acceptance.

I have family with different political viewpoints than I, but I love them and accept their beliefs unconditionally. We may spar over these things, but it is respectful and never, “your ideas are a farce, or stupid.”

At the very least we try to understand the importance and meanings of our beliefs to each as an individual and accept them.

Hi gang,

           Figured its time to brush off the cobwebs and get posting some news stories again.

Article 1  – Forensics

First is some content from Squatchdetective University, as I go over some do’s and don’ts of forensic evidence collection techniques.

Deer kill by Bigfoot? Nope…shot!

 


Article 2 – Waterford, New York Bigfoot Flap of 1981

Next up is one of my local favorites. Found while looking at John Green’s database, I did a little Squatchdetective work to get the police reports and the details.

Report_1654_811

Police report of August 8th, 1981

 


Squatchdetective Radio update.

Just to let you know gang it’s coming up fast….stay tuned for details and announcements.

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.

 

Published on Sep 5, 2014 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a_JpY_7ubs&feature=youtu.be

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

                                                         —- Jeff Patterson aka “The Squatchmaster”

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…

CameraZOOM-20140916122746052 

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.

 

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

Hi gang. Yes it’s been awhile but for much good reason. No… I haven’t taken time off per se, but have been busy setting up the new office, overall a pretty big move and much more, prepping for the upcoming 2014 season. The Office stands currently at about 45% complete but is operational.

      Composite

(Left) New headquarters is taking shape. (Right) My equipment cabinet and charging station.

There’s also some more, “behind the scenes” doings, but that may come out in time and all is very good stuff.

Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first, but even that is good news so to speak…


Dummy Tour Busted, Broke and Done… The Obituary

Board Room

Citing personal issues, personal betrayals (yet again), a conspiracy (replacing his “body” with a fake dummy), and lack of profitability, what we affectionately call the “Dummy Tour 2014” has seem to have been stalled out for at least 90 days.

This all began a couple of weeks ago, when rumors abounded about several things.

First while in Arizona, nobody wanted the “exhibit,” nor did New Mexico. While in Texas, Dyer was supposed to have shown his Bigfoot “documentary,” after his exhibit and Q&A. That would have been p[particularly nice especially since some people who paid to get the DVD have yet to receive it.

However what he ended up showing was the 1980’s comedy “Harry and the Henderson’s.”  Technically that may have been in violation of Federal Law.

Despite Dyer’s claims of being “sold out everywhere,” it seems he was either spending too much or his numbers were, as we suspect and proven here before, a bit inflated.

There were also unconfirmed rumors he got punched in the puss by someone as well. Again that was unconfirmed. We have Lindsay’s sources saying that someone tore the lid off the box. (I don’t trust Lindsay’s sources at all, after all they were the ones stating how real this was.)

Then we have Dyer marketing dude, Andrew Clacy departing the scene and flying back to Australia, where on his Facebook page, it’s as if Rick Dyer never existed anymore. Thing is, Dyer is looking for a new marketing dude, at least that’s what he’s saying.

Then we had his Florida detour, which seemed to be the last hurrah for the failing tour. “But alas poor Yurick,” we now have the “Blue Light Special,” on Bigfoot dummy exhibits, marked down from $20 to $10 and then finally, pitifully to $5.

And while all this was going on, Dyer, “Lily Dyer,” his babies’ momma, better known as Rosa Contreras Guilbert was dealing with and eviction process back in Las Vegas.

As I have said before, the fall of a sociopath is going to be hard and painful, and the hoax will be a big part of his undoing. Just read this blog from our good friend, Racer-X and you will see the world crumbling under this pathetic individuals feet. Broke, busted, evicted, with family troubles. Don’t feel too sorry. Yet I have no sympathy, he can sell the RV, the trailer…etc. 

It seems as though people whom were the “die hard” Dyer believers, well they are starting to finally crack, some may even hold even a little glimmer of hope. Maybe even about the “Camper Video.” But remember we reported it here a year and a half ago, just prior to that video, Dyer purchased a bunch of professional video equipment, so caveat emptor on that. And given the man’s actions, even if it had been real, which it is not, it would have been worthless in value.

We haven’t been wrong thus far yet as to the reality of Dyer having evidence.

This is a sad, sad saga, but I am finally glad to see it come to an end. While it did provide us insight to some whom we saw as authorities, become so fully invested in Dyer’s scandalous behavior, that they became tunnel-visioned unable to see an argument from the other side and apply common sense. They took hard objective data and pushed it aside for the subjective assessments often lead to by Dyer or once of his minions or “sources.”

See folks the sad thing is Dyer likes to accuse people of riding his coat tails. In reality he was riding everyone’s coat tails. He was riding on the coat tails of our good work, our good names, the name of the legend we have so hard worked to prove and for some, our gullibility’s.  He was and still is the “wanna be.”

He wanted on TV and he got that. He wanted attention, and he got that. He wanted revenge, and that quite didn’t work out like he expected.

But what he wanted most, and which he will never get, is to be proven right.


Cabela’s Weekend

As usual we were treated to a great weekend at Cabela’s in Triadelphia, West Virginia for their Strange, Unusual and Rare Sightings weekend, where there was a great speaker lineup including, Eric Altman, Billy Willard, Stan Gordon, Doug Waller, and Dr. Jeff  Meldrum. I had the honor  to be on the dais with these fine people and had the pleasure of spending the weekend with them.

Upstairs in the conference room, we all had tables and this is slowly turning into a WV Bigfoot conference. The event was totally free sponsored by our good friends at Cabela’s and special mention to our host, Bud Forte.

And as always catch me along with my co-host Chris Bennett each week on Squatchdetective Radio. Thursday nights 8PM EST to 9:30PM EST, also available on I-Tunes.

 

 

 

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

Hey gang, good times, good times!  In a super positive mood this week as a lot of things coming to fruition.

First, the move is on to a new Squatch-D HQ in March. The new facility should be the best biggest yet. So there may be a little quiet streak coming up the last week of February, first week of March.


Road trip anyone???

In March of course, there is the Cabela’s Rare, Strange & Unusual Sightings, at the Cabela’s in Tridelphia, West Virginia.

A totally free event, with Eric Altman, Billy Willard, Dave Dragosin, Doug Waller, Stan Gordon, myself and featuring Dr. Jeff Meldrum.

(Left) Myself, Eric Altman and Billy Willard at the Steve “Indy” Pickett Memorial Barbeque, Salt Fork State Park, Ohio and (Right) Dave Dragosin and myself at the East Cast UFO/Bigfoot Conference, West Moreland, Pennsylvania.

There will be a meet and greet panel on Friday March 14th, and the speaker series on the 15th and 16th. Admission is $0.00, FREE, GRATIS, etc.

Okay time for my shameless plug…will have copies of What Would Sasquatch Do”  available for purchase and of course anyone who has purchased one in the past bring it, and I will make sure it gets signed.

I know there will be some other vendor tables as well and it’d be a great time to get any of Stan Gordon’s books you may have signed and see if he’s got some new ones. Of course Dr. Meldrum will perhaps have his awesome, Sasquatch: When Legend Meets Science there as well.


Series Finales???

Rumors are abound that filming just wrapped for the series finale of Finding Bigfoot, which will air next year,I believe.

findingbigfoot01-e1365019363412

 

The rumor started when a local newspaper where they were doing what may be the final filming (Humboldt County), in a  Walla Walla, Washington paper ( I always love how that town sounds, kind of makes me wonder if the have a Walla Walla Wal-Mart in town).

Question is, did the newspaper misquote and say series finale instead of season finale. Shows are usually hush hush about whom announces the series finale. Sources around the web are leaning to, that’s it.

I will just sit and wait. Nonetheless I am a bit melancholy to see the program go. 

I know, I know, its just entertainment my colleagues say. I agree. But I am a “Squatcher,” and I like to be entertained. The show also opened the door, not only for the shenanigans by some on the down side, but on the good side, did make people a little bit more tolerable to the possibility of their being a Sasquatch.

Not to mention inspiring a future generation of kids, who seem to love Bobo, to keep an open mind and perhaps one day get in the field themselves, much the way The Legend of Boggy Creek was to me and countless others in the 70’s.

Some of the inspirations that created generations of researchers and enthusiasts

Of course media and TV programming is the latter part of the twentieth century’s inspirations but prior to that we had countless books by the likes of John Green, Ivan T. Sanderson, John Keel, Dr. John Napier in the past which set the tone for new researchers.

Finding Bigfoot, having well survived its first season, like it or not, has made its mark in history and developing a new generation of researcher yet to come. Not bad. 

A curious note was that the news media was always neutral on the matter until we saw a drop off for about a decade in the late 80’s. Then they turned on us believers with bias. It would seem without adequate reminders that this mystery exists, the news forgotten most objectivity in the matter and now consider it a side show attraction.


BBBtheend

Just my observations, but still no word on Bigfoot Bounty’s renewal, but considering the time it took to cast the previous time, and having my ear firmly to the ground, it doesn’t appear that Bigfoot Bounty will be coming back. There’s just been no real big buzz about it like the time Finding Bigfoot went “wheels up.” Spike did not appear to enthusiastic about the Bigfoot Bounty the way Animal Planet was about Finding Bigfoot.


Speaking of side show attractions…

Dummy Boy has hit the road, and is trying to find a venue in Phoenix  while he lays low near Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Last week we showed you a post where Dummy Boy was selling his little trailer, stating he bought one appropriate for carnivals and fairs, and side shows for that matter. Well this picture turned up from somewhere, showing Dyer did indeed obtain a new, bigger trailer and is not eating the most nutritious food.

1911650_3843098612986_15175521_n

Dyer Watch 2014.

We all know about the venue he has at the end of the month in Houston, and people from reports have been deluging the venue to pull out of the deal. However, here at Squatchdetective.com, we will be having our sources doing their thing at the venue.

Sources state that Dyer’s tour may end in San Antonio near the end of May.


This week on Squatchdetective Radio

Radio2  This week we’re bring back Don Boucher, to NOT talk about dummy boy, but rather about Bigfoot research and Bigfoot in Montana. Join us 8PM EST on Squatchdetective Radio.

 

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D
