Ledger’s Lafayette & Seely’s Sasquatch

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 24th, 2008

Musing on the Twilight Language. Sometimes, I must blog about the Fortean and the anomalistic, as it applies to current events. I need to move these thoughts along, so for those looking for something strictly zoological or cryptozoological, you might wish to skip this one. For those who allow yourself to go down this path […]

More Wisconsin Bigfoot News

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on January 24th, 2008

Has Bigfoot returned? Farmington man ponders mystery tracks TOWN OF FARMINGTON – Journalists, by nature, are typically a suspicious, cynical lot. Taking everything with a grain of salt is our credo, embedded by life experience – especially in us old timers – that everything is not simply what it appears to be. The old saying, […]

10,000 B.C.: Cryptofiction?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 23rd, 2008

You have got to love the mammoths! And sabertoothed tigers! What elements of narrative cryptofiction, in which these animals, as well as the hominids, are shown as surviving late into protohistorical times in 10,000 B.C. overlap with our interests? Frankly, I always find it intriguing and instructive to see how artists, filmmakers, and scientists recreate […]

Yucatan Raccoons: Not Nazis

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 21st, 2008

Unlike the “Nazi raccoons” of Germany, the raccoons in the Yucatan are suppose to be there. They are not alien invaders. Chad Arment writes: “A quick fyi on this, the raccoon subspecies in the Yucatan is native, not introduced: Procyon lotor shufeldti. See p. 87 of Raccoons: A Natural History by Samuel I. Zeveloff.”

Nazis & The Search for Yeti

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 21st, 2008

Heinrich Harrer in Tibet. I got to first thinking about Nazis, Tibet, and Yeti, three years ago, when I heard that famed mountaineer Heinrich Harrer, 93, died on January 7, 2005. The entire story does feel like it is straight out of Indiana Jones, of course. Movies are often a point of reference, needless to […]
