North Bend… Part III

Posted by: Rick Noll on November 8th, 2005

(System of a Down – Mr. Jack)   Mike Martin and a friend of his got out of the truck and introduced themselves. Approaching us he asked if we were here about the Bigfoot tracks. We said yes and then came right out and said that he believed he saw a Bigfoot not too long […]

Death of Bob Warth

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 8th, 2005

The Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained was founded by Ivan T. Sanderson. Sanderson created the society to further his research interests and writings of Forteana, from Abominable Snowmen reports to out-of-place objects. SITU’s journal was Pursuit, and the editor from 1980 onward was Bob Warth. I’ve been informed, indirectly from his wife, via […]

Cable Producers & CZ Headhunting

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 8th, 2005

Be forewarned that currently a certain cable program is looking for a cryptozoologist to hold up to ridicule on their show. They are stepping up their attempts to find someone for a cryptozoology attack episode. I was approached by them before the Bates Symposium. They wanted to supposedly interview me about the history of cryptozoology. […]

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 7th, 2005

As posted on LiveScience today:  A geochronologist, Jack Rink, from an Ontario university has determined that Gigantopithecus blackii lived alongside early humans for over a million years. 10 feet tall, weighing up to 1200 pounds. This is typically larger than most reports of Bigfoot. "A missing piece of the puzzle has always focused on pin-pointing […]

North Bend… Part II

Posted by: Rick Noll on November 6th, 2005

(Doors – Five to One)  The men were clearly excited about the events here and in their enthusiasm decided to try and impress us with statements like they had 300 Bigfoot casts at their home and that they worked with THE John Green. One of them even pulled out a tape recorder and asked if […]

Keeping Your Sense of Humor

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 6th, 2005

Chris Thompson really got the Bates Cryptozoology Symposium: “It is impossible to describe in a short column the strangeness of the discursive space that this event produced, or to begin to tap the wide range of themes that it covered — from the relationship between animality and humanity to the social psychology of witnessing (ghosts, […]

Lake Kanasi Monster

Ancient Chinese Mongolians tell of monsters in Lake Kanasi. Twenty years ago, the first modern wave of sightings of the Lake Kanasi Monster occurred.

More on Greenwell

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 5th, 2005

Richard Greenwell, who just passed away, reportedly had planned to write a book on cryptozoology, but never did. Few knew that he had co-edited two books. His first was Nutrition, Food, and Man: An Interdisciplinary Perspective by Paul B. Pearson and J. Richard Greenwell (ed), Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 1980. The second reflected his […]

Have You Shaved Your Yeti Today?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 5th, 2005

Polartec®, an outdoorswear manufacturer, had a viral add created titled, "Shave My Yeti". It is somewhat along the lines as Burger King’s Subservient Chicken. Try it out, it’s pretty fun, at least the first time. "It isn’t easy being a Yeti. No one believes in you. And those that do run screaming in the other […]

North Bend… Part I

Posted by: Rick Noll on November 5th, 2005

Washington, January 25, 2004… I now use a small Sony digital MD recorder to interview people. The quality is really amazing! You can be sitting almost anywhere and get sound like it was professionally made in a studio…I’m sure that some of that is due to the microphone too… can you tell I am kind […]

Andes’ Ucumar in new TV Series

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 4th, 2005

Ooops, I meant “new TV movie,” of course. This is a television film directed by Fred Wolf, who co-wrote the screenplay with Peter Gaulke. Look for Bigfoot hunting to be the next wave in fictional television productions. First out of the gate: "Strange Wilderness" in 2006. The television movie would join the growing ranks of […]

Several videos purporting to be of giant creatures, one that was unearthed in the ice of Siberia, another supposedly washed up on the beach by a tsunami are posted on the website, along with […]

Barnum and Bates

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 3rd, 2005

Mark Baard’s article, "America Goes Cryptozoology Crazy," in Wired News certainly was reflected in the Bates Conference and during the month of October. Cryptomundo’s launch, the Texas Bigfoot Conference, Duel Masters’ Bounty Offer and present photo prizes, Weird Travels’ Nessie and Champ program, the Dover Demon Boston television programming, and the Bates Cryptozoology Symposium all […]

Addendum to “You say it’s all a hoax?”

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 2nd, 2005

I will add to what Rick addressed in his post: You say it’s all a hoax? What causes people to make outrageous, unsubtantiated claims regarding sightings of Bigfoot? There are 2 distinct personality types that indulge in this: the fantasy-prone type and the attention-seeking type. Fantasy-prone types have more sensitivity to non-ordinary realities and having […]
