The 40th anniversary party has been a long time coming. The media took note, some interviews were given, gatherings & meetings occurred, and even Boing Boing TV taped for future broadcast, regarding the milestone.
Many people have done their best to carry on celebrations from California to Maine, Malaysia to France, and London to Nepal. It was a coast to coast event. Photographs will be published in coming days.
In the background, the original film footage lives on.
I’ll end today’s posting with this re-visit of Patty and me, by cartoonist Charles Berlin, and the meaning behind it, well, is in the eye of the beholder, or at least the artist:
Back to passing along other news and more talk of non-Bigfoot cryptids tomorrow.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
