Blobsquatch in the Expanded Field

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 5th, 2008

More from Metaphortean Carl Diehl, here are videos of his “Blobsquatch in the Expanded Field” from 2006-2007, and, at the bottom, his visual and sound tribute to the Patterson-Gimlin footage on the occasion of its 40th anniversary in 2007, his “Crypto-Zoetropical Pursuit.”

These are not for the intellectually faint of heart or sensitive of hearing.

Diehl takes Sasquatch, Globsters, and various other cryptids and phenomena to places they have never been before. His exploration of the fringe creatures at the outer edges of twilight language exists alongside his interactions of sound-noise-music-feedback-mistakes played out in terms of his blobsquatchery.

Carl Diehl’s work is painfully thoughtful, and I feel few watching it here, unless you are an avant-garde artist, will have much tolerance or patience for taking this walk with Diehl through the twisted verbal underbrush of his mindful swamp. Nevertheless, as examples of the extreme 21st century flavor of the mixing of cryptozoology and popular culture, I find his are priceless examples. If you are in a mood to think heavily, perhaps you will enjoy these with or without with the sound turned down.

Additionally, I sincerely thank Carl Diehl for giving a tip of his hat to and acknowledging me and Cryptomundo in “Part Two.”

The bottomline, however, is that words do simply capture the foundation of these video. Therefore, please do remember, “one person’s expunged blobsquatch could be another individual’s ‘initial’ piece of potential evidence. The reaction to any one specific blobsquatch remains in the eye of the beholder.”

Part One
Carl Diehl writes: “Recent research has led me to the ‘Blobsquatch,’ a variety of bi-pedal humanoid first reported by Vito Quaranta and Ray Randell three years ago. It is my belief, however, that the Blobsquatch is linked to the malfunction, glitch, accident and aberration—known cryptids of the technocultural realms.”

Part Two
Carl Diehl writes: “After a re-cap of known histories, we enter into the related realm of the globster. Like its close cousin the blobsquatch, the globster matches increased scrutiny with the beguiling guise of being distinctly indistinct! included in this installment is a glimpse of ogo eion’s (loch) NES bending, too”

Part Three
Carl Diehl writes: “Highly charged, this juggernaut of paranormal portent concerns the correspondences and crossed wiring of Charles Fort with metaphortean and/or meta-fortean modes of understanding malfunction. Includes a clear and illogical dramatization of what happens in the duration of uncertainty. Also, Zack Denfeld, a metaphortean colleague of mine, shares his knowledge of engaging with the BEASape extension…a species discovered by Reed Ghazala circa 1967.”

Crypto-Zoetropical Pursuit
“Re-collection of fortean affairs from the weekend of Oct.19/20th 2007, as witnessed at Rererato and LumpWest galleries. At once a celebration of Bigfoot and pursuit of novel crypto-logistics, curious counter-sights and other anomalies! Held in conjunction with the 40th anniversary weekend of the Bigfoot image captured by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin on Oct.20th 1967. Showcases with: Universe, Pulse Emitter, Son of Sasquatch, Jason Jones, Don Haugen, Instinct Control, noteNdo and assorted animation from the outer limits of audio-visual experience.”

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. 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. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

One Response to “Blobsquatch in the Expanded Field”

  1. DWA responds:

    All I can say is that, having said it the way he did the first time, I would almost certainly say it the way he did the second time, the third time.

    Or was this fourth time? I’ve lost track. 😉
