What happened on the shores of Lisbon Falls that shook me to my core?
I was shocked by the point of reference shown in the midst of this melodrama.
I certainly can die now. My legacy has been set in video at YouTube.
Performance art, cryptofiction cinema, or just incredibly funny? What have I inspired?
An additional comment, perhaps even a clarification:
All joking aside, I feel humbled that these creative young people would construct a passion play, complete with imagined scenarios and out-of-place accents, using my book as a prop. It is wonderful to see this unfold in video form.
Others have measured an existence by its kings and queens, its wars and earthquakes. I find it encouraging to watch the world with cryptozoology as a focus for life experienced.
The post-modern sense of drama, humor and yet appreciation of cryptozoology by these actors, filmmakers, and writers is apparent. I am honored they have placed my work in a camero role in their production.
Since we appear to live in the same region of the country, I look forward to some day congratulating them on their production.
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.
