Finding The Bigfoot In Yourself: Vote For Fun

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 9th, 2011

Find the Bigfoot in yourself. Vote for you. Vote for Loren. Vote for fun. But don’t be squatched by not understanding the voting system!

Sharon Lee is asking for Facebook folks to “List the top ten male and female Bigfoot Researchers or Notables that you would like to see on a calendar.” I guess for people at work who can’t be out in the field, this is a good exercise in which to engage. Or late at night, before going to sleep? Is it cryptozoology? Or even popular hominology? People love lists. And entertainment.

Okay, Friends of Loren Coleman, go ahead and vote for me. It is not necessary to vote for ten. Consider just voting for me and yourself.

You actually increase the power of your vote if you do not vote for all possibilities. Weighted voting and plural voting works best if you only vote for those you want, say one to five people, not all ten.

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.

    This started out as a poll to garner interest in a novelty calendar that manifested in my brain in response to a very handsome photograph of Bart Cutino.

    The project will cost over $1500 so we wanted to test the waters to see if it was worth the investment.

    We then decided that we can’t just have 12 months of Bart, although I am not complaining, so we set up the poll to find 10 male and 10 female researchers, notables or celebrities that everyone would consider staring at for a full month.

    We know there are 12 months in a year folks, we were going to whittle the 20 choices down to 12, however, this thing has gained momentum and is taking off like crazy!

    Some people don’t get the concept that this is a novelty item, for entertainment purposes only. We are not accepting nominations for dead people as we don’t think they will photograph well and it’s time to focus on the new faces of Bigfoot (and cryptozoology).

    I am sure egos are being bruised as well as stoked but remember, this venture is being funded by real dollars and is considered business, nothing personal.

    So please vote, have fun with it, limit your votes to living persons, not animals although Kapten Kaveman is an honorary nominee. I am sure any photo we do get of him will be blurry at best.

    Vote for as many as you want we will choose from the top and whittle our way down.
    The hard part is going to be getting the nominees to willingly submit a photo and bio for the calendar!

    Carry on folks!

    You’re kidding, right?

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    For those who can’t recall Sharon’s mentioned model, Bart Cutino…

    The usual suspects, from left to right: Cliff Barackman, Bart Cutino, Linda Martin, Wally Hersom, and Tom Yamarone.

  4. stranger responds:

    I’m also gonna vote for Anna Marie Goddard (might as well have some eye candy in that calendar) as she linked to a Bigfoot sighting.

    My other proposal is Dean Harrison who is here infamous for his yowie attack photos. (if you have to poke your eyes out after viewing the link, you were warned!!!)

  5. Nominay responds:

    I think it’s kind of cruel to ask for decisions like this, separating ones hard efforts over decades from another. We should’ve left this kind of stuff behind in HS.
    Loren is probably my favorite, but really, anyone who has a sighting is a hero of mine, except for Justin Smeja.
