After some confusion, the program is officially “on.”
A new date has been announced. Images.
The new season has begun and some good shows are in line to be screened.
Eli Harrington, who is a communications volunteer this summer working in China, has recently returned from exploring some little known Yeren sites. One of the Chinese posters used in local villagers to encourage eyewitnesses to tell Yeren researchers about their sightings. Chinese researcher Yuan Zhenxin with the cast of an alleged Yeren from Hubei province’s Shennogjia Nature Reserve. While in China, Harrington took a few side trips to see the crypto-parts and other wonders of the country. Highlights he has mentioned include the horseback riding in the Mongolian grasslands, archery/airsoft gun games, the Buddhist temple with world’s largest wooden Buddha, [...]
Okay, so the power was turned off in the bfters’ freezer in Georgia, they are telling us. Okay, they are being harassed. All the July fees for the bftrackers “expeditions” are being refunded. What does this all sound like to you? Is an exit scenario being developed? As I mentioned here yesterday, late last night a “Coast to Coast AM with George Noory” producer invited me to come on as their guest to discuss the Georgia Bigfoot body case and the Grassman episode of “MonsterQuest.” I was exhausted from the Royal Alberta Museum jetlag, so I respectfully declined. The program [...]
Cryptozoology will soon have another friend in China. Champ enthusiast, Winooski (Vermont) native and Brandeis University student Eli Harrington will leave Friday, June 27, 2008, for an eight-week internship at Voice of America’s Beijing bureau and will likely report on activities at the Summer Olympics. Maybe he’ll report on the Yeren too? Or those mysterious Chinese lake monsters, in his spare time? The opportunity came together quickly, Harrington said. Brandeis encourages internships and work experience, and one of his professors mentioned Harrington, 20, to a former colleague who worked for Voice of America. After a few phone interviews, he was [...]
Allegedly, this is an artist’s impression of the Yowie. What is happening here? Are folks saying that the Yowie is nothing more than an Australian form of Bigfoot? What kind of beast is the Yowie? First, a little introduction to why I am asking… The Ray Wallace-created wooden tool, above, is compared with an often-published “Bigfoot” print, the Blue Creek track. Wallace’s hoaxed tracks have hurt the database of hominology, but they do not ultimately distract the field from the questions at hand. People still wonder about what is Bigfoot. (Dave Rubert photo of the wooden fake is used by [...]
In the US it’s known as Bigfoot, in Canada as Sasquatch, in Brazil as Mapinguary, in Australia as a Yowie, in Indonesia as Sajarang Gigi and, most famously of all, in Nepal as a Yeti. The little known Indian version of this legendary ape-like creature is called Mande Barung – or forest man – and is reputed to live in the remote West Garo hills of the north-eastern state of Meghalaya. I was invited by passionate yeti believer Dipu Marak to travel throughout the area to hear for myself what he says is compelling evidence of the existence of a [...]
The Borneo Post is reporting on Friday the 13th of June, 2008, on the find of some incredible footprints. Even my colleague Mark A. Hall has only talked about “True Giants” in that corner of the world with tracks in the range of 22 inches long. What are we to make of the following imprint, said to measure 47 inches long? Is what is happening here merely a big planned hoax of two giant constructed imprints? Do these reporters understand how large a hominoid would be with 47 inches long feet? HUGE: Local community leader Pemanca Tan Poh Kuan is [...]
Carl Diehl’s Metaphortean Space nicely adds a shiny chrome, intellectually-friendly frame around his insights into “blogsquatching”: An interface is typically designed to make the new domain easier for a “user” to comprehend. When this remediation works, the user is fairly oblivious to the crossing-over that is going on. On the contrary, malfunction typically calls attention to the collision of worlds, maintaining itself as burden on presumed purposes. This sort of dissonance might seem to complicate the credibility of such a thing as “the interface of malfunction.” If there is hesitation…so be it. An experiential and interpretative encounter with this mechanism [...]
