Well-established Bigfoot researcher and author John Bindernagel takes issue to referring to Bigfoot as "Squatch" and says it is actually culturally insensitive and disrespectful to the Aboriginal legends it derives from. He says, quite rightly, that we owe a lot of our original knowledge to the centuries-old Sasquatch lore from Aboriginal peoples and it's appropriate to use their original nomenclature. The sudden explosion in the popularity of Bigfoot hunting in our popular culture is mosly responsible for this, Bindernagel says. Loren Coleman goes a step further and suggests we refer to them by their original names, including Sasq'ets and Oh-Mahs. Now, if we could just do something about that pesky, annoying method of Bigfoot hunting involving a lot of yelling and banging on trees that came along with "Squatching"...Meanwhile, Bigfoot Evidence urges us to watch as Bigfoot Torments family on video, which sounds much more ominous than what it actually is. And what it actually is is video footage of what we'll simply call Blobby Mc Blobbington blobbing around in the shadows of some trees in what it seems to think is a menacing way. All we see are blobby shadows here but luckily the family has penned a book full of their experiences being stalked by, Bigfoot entitled, 100 Bigfoot Nights.It's not clear if Bigfoot gets a cut in the deal... And for this Memorial Day weekend we want to urge you to visit the 7th of The 10 Weirdest Museums in the World, according to Time Magazine. What's that, you wonder? None other than the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

We have to agree with Think Thunker (who did a great breakdown of this video) on this one, it's at the very least promising. His analysis of this Washington state footage shows that this creature is not only huge and bipedal but also resembles the grandmother of all Bigfoot evidence, Patty from the Patterson-Gimlin film. There are also sounds accompanying the footage-a very gorilla-like whooping along with some tree smacking as if in warning. Of course, the video is pretty blurry since the guy filming is running towards the creature, but there are enough clear shots to impress skeptics or just people who are really tired of Blobsquatches. Naturally, we can't advocate running in any direction but away from something like this but we sure are glad this guy has a lot more nerve than we do! (A side-note on the second bit of footage-it's not clear why it's included in the original but we can tell you that it's a porcupine in a tree and this particular video surfaced a few years ago and was quickly debunked.) Meanwhile, over at Loch Ness Mystery, Glasgow Boy has managed to track down a video of what is perhaps the most humorous of all events related to Nessie hunting-the time that the Loch was exorcised. Yep, back in 1976 Ted Holiday had the bright idea to perform an Exorcism of the Loch Ness Monster. Evidently, Nessie was just a misunderstood monster rather than a hellish demon because as far as anyone knows, she's still swimming through the depths of the Loch gleefully unexorcised.
