“Knock, Knock” ~ “Who’s there?” ~ “Money….”

29% of Americans, that's who. PS Magazine tells us what we already know--that after numerous hoaxes and fakery, Bigfoot enthusiasts are cautious and careful when it comes to evidence of the cryptid creature and also that "Finding Bigfoot" isn't a very exciting show unless constant yelling and loud whispers of, "DID YOU SEE THAT?!" really pushes your buttons. Meanwhile, Spike TV has admirably put their money where their mouth is, as the saying goes, because their headline grabbing new show,10 Million Dollar Bigfoot bounty premieres Jan 10th. The show is hosted by Dean Cain (who doesn't seem to age) and is staffed by experts who will test the evidence if it's found. It isn't quite clear how the show will work because the description reads as if it's a cross between The Amazing Race and Survivor with evidence of Bigfoot being the sought-after prize. The show's Bigfoot chasers likely will not approach the subject from the angle that Nick Redfern calls the Forbidden Sasquatch strangeness, a fact that Redfern finds very frustrating. The forbidden strangeness he refers to is the possibility that Bigfoot may have unearthly origins and may be connected to UFO sightings, among other types of high-strangeness.

It's been a very quiet week for Bigfoot and his cryptid relatives but never fear, Blobsquatch is here to save the day straight from Lincolnshire. Blobsquatch aka Britfoot was kind enough to appear on video although he forgot to turn off his blur defensive filter off. Our own Chris Savia points out that this sighting was accompanied by the sound of 'banging rocks' which is an interesting detail present in just a handful of sightings here in the US...The Crypto Crew's Dorraine Fisher wonders what exactly it would take to effectively track and locate Bigfoot on an ongoing basis: Bigfoot Undercover What Will It REALLY Take To Find Them? She and her videographer friend Philip Spencer conclude that the only way is to dedicate months, even years to the project and disappear into the deep forest to 'become part of the landscape', in order to assimilate enough to get near Bigfoot. There are few people out there willing much less able to do this sort of thing, but we'd nominate Wilderness expert Les Stroud for the job.

Everyone and their little brother in the Pacific northwest has seen something associated with Bigfoot. Adding another for the pile growing taller than Mt. Rainier, Dana Matthews has a photo from Jeff Stillman showing an astounding print from last week. Piqued? Check in with Dale Drinnon with the skinny on the Mount Rainier Sasquatch. In other crypto news, Greg Taylor has coverage of Richard Freeman's quest to answer the question "Are There Still Tasmanian Tigers Roaming In The Wild?" His CFZ expedition appears to have a body of evidence, but do they have a body?

My Review of the Field Guide to Bigfoot, Yeti and Other Mystery Primates Worldwide by Loren Coleman and Patrick Huyghe

5.0 out of 5 stars Bold, Comprehensive and Worth Reading,December 6, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Field Guide To Bigfoot, Yeti, & Other Mystery Primates Worldwide (Paperback)
This book takes a bold step forward in the study of hairy hominids (or hominoids if one prefers) in that the two authors, Coleman and Huyghe, propose different classes of these mystery primates, from True Giants (9 feet and taller) to Neo-Giants to Proto-Pygmies to Unknown Pongids to even the controversial Water Apes. The reader travels from North America to Asia to Europe to even Oceania exploring these different creatures and the implications thereof. While the reader may not agree with every type of classification it is still a worthwhile read and a welcome addition to every Cryptozoological bookshelf.

Ya know, even in your most sleepless moments, you can occasionally have moments of clarity.

For about the past two years, one thing about the show Finding Bigfoot has bothered me more than any other-the usage of the plural term "Bigfoots." Why this bothered me so much, I will never know. However, starting today, while I may not use the term myself, I will at least take the George Costanza stance on it (his was on the word "manure," I.E. it's "nure" which is good, with a "ma" in front of it, ergo, it's "foots," which is good, with a "Big" in front of it, so if you think about it, it's really not all that bad). SO I will no longer cringe and allow my teeth to be set on edge every time one of them says "Bigfoots." I will accept it as the lexicon of this crazy world of ours we call Bigfooting.

This Day In Bigfoot History: 60 Years Ago Today...

December 3rd, 1953: Rene Dahinden was working for a dairy farmer in the province of Alberta, Canada, near Calgary. He was having dinner with his boss and they heard a CBC news report about the London Daily Mail newspaper sponsoring a search for the Abominable Snowman, or Yeti. Rene said to his boss, "Wouldn't it be something to go on a search like this?" His boss told him, "Hell, you don't have to go that far. They have something like that in British Columbia." Dahinden described it as someone turning a switch and he was one of the first in that era to really bring about awareness of this large, hairy hominid or hominoid in British Columbia, and he inspired John Green to look into it and John became the main chronicler of the phenomenon. Hats off to that farmer, Dahinden and to John Green for their part in making us aware of these magnificent beings called Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
