Me, Not Them!

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 21st, 2010


I need to clarify, for those folks that are not reading the authors of the Cryptomundo blogs closely, I am not the writer of all the sci-fi movie postings of late.

Since Cryptomundo’s ownership moved from first time owner Eric Reed to Craig Woolheater, changes may be apparent. One that I wish to bring to your attention is that everything that goes on here is not from me.

Yes, there was a period where Rick Noll, John Kirk, and Craig were posting, along with me, but they all stopped after a few years.

Now, without any formal introductions, as far as I know, more changes and people may join Cryptomundo blogging. Various people have sent me comments about “my” grammar, my “super long headlines,” or “my” reminders. But these have not been from me. I didn’t even know who was posting them, myself. Only recently did I learn it was a Mr. Ken Hulsey. I say this out of no disrespect for him, but to merely, once again, reinforce that Cryptomundo is not just me, but sometimes is them.

I am only bringing this up, as various people seem to think I posted the Them! item, which appeared yesterday.

No, I did not.


I have, in the past, however, noted the passing of various Them! actors, including:

Christian Drake;

James Whitmore; and

Fess Parker.

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.

    I have to say that I was a bit surprised to find this article this morning when I logged on to Cryptomundo.

    Yes, please don’t blame Loren for the weird stuff that I have been adding to the site. He has nothing to do with it.

    Craig invited me to join the staff here after he became a fan of my blog, “Monster Island News”. He thought that the readers here would like the kind of articles that I am posting there.

    Granted, I have a weird style of writing, and a weird sense of humor, so these new items won’t be for everyone.

    If you don’t like them, please don’t direct your comments at Loren.

    I have the greatest respect and admiration for Loren Coleman, so I truly don’t want him to have to field items that should be sent my way.

    I do want to point out that it is an honor to be part of a great site like Crytomundo.

    I can only hope that everyone can look past my limited writing skills to be able to enjoy my articles.

    I believe, that given time, you will see the humor and hopefully learn a thing or two from them.

    It is my intention to educate, entertain and expose the readers here to stuff that they may not know about.

    It would be helpful if there was some sort of different configuration on the Cryptomundo layout depending on the person responsible for the post.

    Maybe something as simple as a little photo of the author, in order to alert the reader?

    Yes, I know there’s the “Posted by:” title at the very beginning; but it may be clear by now that most Cryptomundians skip it, eager to get into the ‘meat’ of the post 😉

    One thing is evident: there’s been a decrease in the number of comments lately, and that’s a darn shame 🙁

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    All in good humor and a sidewinder welcome to you Ken, as should be expected when strange things surface unknown to the readers or other bloggers here. Take it all in stride, and it was my way to make what has seemed very covert a bit more overt. Perhaps a bio, introduction, and more from you would help? For a few blog columns, I even thought Sean “Southern Fried Bigfoot” was posting them. I just didn’t have a clue.

    I also have to agree with Red Pill Junkie’s comment. There was a time when all the bloggers had their own mastheads. I never could understand why that was done away with by the last management, but it seemed a sound idea that was lost.

  4. springheeledjack responds:

    I think it is the combination of the tiny post notice, … and the fact that Loren does a lot of the posting here. I know I’ve caught myself referring to Loren, ASSuming it was him and then having gone back and looked to make sure only to find out it was Craig or someone else. But I think it’s an easy mistake these days.

    I like the idea of having a pic associated with the post-er, or maybe just a larger title line.

    Either way, don’t take offense at such mistakes…sometimes we’re just not as observant as we should be:)
