The above observation based upon Dyer’s deal. It is in conflict to that RV, playboy/penthouse chicks video, but then again that one was ready to lay some pipe.
Nope, we are not talking about the whole tree marker stuff.
Damn you Moneymaker.
It seems that every time we get some distance from OOPS, now known within the BFE staff as the Apple Caper, you suck us right back in. We have had some sharp words to say about Finding Bigfoot, aka Finding Bigpuffery, especially in the first season. What we have come to appreciate about the show is the wise casting and the reach of the show in terms of locales. Admittedly most of us at the BFE are not inclined toward travel to places where the political, security and basic infrastructure isues are a threat to our health and well being. Trips to the UK or an English-speaking Central American country are the limits of our toleration for those types of risks. Some would question what a few of us jump into in terms of rivers and creeks, but at least that risk is largely within our control as opposed to ending up in regions where there are State Department advisories. Props for traveling into those places.
But we digress. We are damning Matt because of his recent statements about bigfoot possessing the ability of bioluminescence, essentially generate light through their eyes. Matt comes out every once in awhile with a statement that most of bigfootery jumps on. The self anointed “experts” will pull up their soapbox and start to lecture the “community” on how the idea outrageous . They will point out facts based in biology, what few animals posses such a characteristic, how it is not been discovered in any pongids (they like to use those scientific terms to seem expert like) and generally how uninformed such an outlandish statement is and how it reflects badly upon these “experts” and the “community”. Are we damning him for the same reason as the “experts”? Hell no.
His comment pissed at least two of us off as it dragged us back to the time of the Apple Caper and our personal experiences, some not so pleasant, with the bigfoot traffic lights. Moneymaker’s comment demonstrates that he has been down it, he has mixed it up with these things. It also points out that some of these third and fourth level bigfoot researchers who are laughing at the comment and providing “expert” evidence on how this cannot be true have not truly mixed it up with these things. They would sing a different tune or just stay quiet if they had. Once you experience the bigfoot traffic light, by that time you have also experienced a few other bigfoot related things, you realize you are dealing with something weird. And we have been traffic lighted at night with only ambient natural light , sorry to bust the expert bubble that it must be reflection from a human light source. Pretty certain this was not the case.
So damn you Moneymaker for taking us back to the Apple Caper. Here’s our interpretation of the bigfoot traffic light :
Green – they are cool, curious, perhaps taken by surprise, no threats or annoyances detected. They often think they have not been detected at this point. Green is really hard to see, faint. They do blink at this point.
Yellow – the surprise has passed, they are processing the situation and sensing some things they are not comfortable with, someone has violated some space parameter, they might not like the tactical situation in terms of egress, someone has noticed them and giving them attention or directing others to their location. Blinking slows.
Red – they are pissed at the hairless piss ants. Certain warnings that usually work to back off the piss ants have not worked, the piss ants are in the way of them getting to food, shelter or others, the hairless piss ants are answering and escalating the behaviors that generally send the piss ants a runnin. Blinking is almost gone.
Hey BF Field Reporter. What you said about Doc M., bigfootery gold. His making three appearances in the spring up in the eastern Midwest is saturation. One has to wonder about his students and wife. But to each his own, make that bigfootery dollars while it is hot in pop culture. We get what you were saying and you did nail it. Messin with an icon, let alone messin with sasquatch, is risky business and we are sure there will be a blow back. Watch what happens in this blow back as it will be text book bigfootery. There will be a piling on, opportunism, people will be offended, there will be some flip flopping of “friends”, praise for the icon, attacks on the messenger instead of the message and few will address the core issue of his bigwhoreish behavior.
Bigwhoreishness comes in many forms in bigfootery. Whoring out pictures you do not own, carpet bagging, various hypocrisies, it is easy to find the whores. Congrats to the Field Reporter for stripping away the niceities and calling it what it is.
We’ve had an article or two about the reporter and had bestowed a not so nice nickname that we felt fit. We are now giving her a new moniker, Courtney. Like her name sake we find her unpredictable, possibly inebriated, unfiltered opinions to be a bit…….. hot. How about that?
We are unsure if the icon worshipers know this about the Doc. In this essay he attempts to use some scientific data (genetics), cultural and political themes to validate a Book of Mormon’s pronouncement on how America was peopled. It is an interesting read eventually spinning into the absence of evidence does not mean the absence of fact and conclusions. Sounds like an early exercise in one of the concepts employed in bigfootery.
No, not a Bigfootery Enquirer bounty, the TV show. We especially appreciate the absolute intellectual poverty of those who review the show without watching it. There is certainly a great deal of biggrumpery over the series, even at this early juncture. One gem we collected when we watched it off the dvr was Disotell mentioning the sweet spot for dna collection of stools is the leading tip as it has the cells of the pooper. Now, the self proclaimed expert third and fourth level bigfooters will spin saying Oh, LOL !!!, I already knew that. But we doubt it. So there are gems the reviewers and biggrumpers who bitch but do not watch are missing.
Is the series original? Other than the topic, it seems they have blended some Survivor with some Amazing Race and then threw in a cooking show elimination process. They say reality or semi-reality shows are made or broken with the cast, so we are thinking 50/50. The ratings have not made the Finding Bigfoot folks nervous at this point, we are sure.
Carry on experts, review without seeing something, claim to be a scientist with a high school education, attempt to act like an old hand if you came into this before the age of Facebook or Youtube.
Rick Dyer’s new millenium version of the Minnesota Ice Man. He’s got his new and improved stuffed bigfoot, no pork additives this time, and is hitting the road with a newly wrapped trailer and vehicle. On his schedule is a stop in Ohio for the carpetbagger’s creature festival. Somehow, that just fits and the faithful (all couple dozen of them) will find it a delightful addition. Wow Newman, what a scoop. The BFE smells desperation.
A rare mid-week, fall post. Too many things happening and a breaking development that needs mentioning. For those wondering, we have not been intimidated into giving up our rights to speech, opinions and editorial commentary.
A Battle of Wits or Nit Wits?
The battle between Dyer and Kulls continued over the last few months. Dyer claimed he possessed a baby bigfoot, that liked Mc’Ds and had some odd anatomy . Kulls cries hoax, Dyer challenges him to come see it out on the west coast. Kulls falls for the first part of the trick and leaches some frequent flyer miles and travels to LA, but then has a back up plan when Dyer attempts to get him to travel to the HOLLYWOOD sign where he would be transported to the secret location and does not fall for the rest of the gag. Both claim victory, Kulls crows of busting a hoax. We don’t think a few days of time and burning some jet fuel was necessary to figure out it was a hoax, Dyer was clearly going over the top in his claims, but if it helps keep Kulls thinking he is the detective man then all is well.
Take aways from this story:
- Bigfootery can create strange bedfellows, a few months earlier Kulls was exposing and calling out the same guys that were the charity source of the flyer miles to get him out west.
- Dyer is incorrigible and can work angles better than Minnesota Fats, he is sticking to the shooting story and selling a $100 dvd that gets your rights to see the body once it goes on display.
Cyber Offensive Launched Against Some Bigfooters
It would seem that someone(s) are being nefarious and hacking websites and email accounts. Those that have been victims are revealing, if someone wants to place themselves at the various levels of bigfootery fame, the fact that you have been a target of this effort is enlightening. Who, where, why, enquiring minds would like to know.
Take aways from this story:
- Use a good password, or at least a robust piece of software. Change the password often and have a back up.
Melba and Crew Hold a Press Conference
We are still trying to figure out the why on this one, was just too busy to either watch the tape or read the reactions. A few leading theories are they wanted to recapture some momentum prior to releasing a film or marketing the product as a TV special similar to the mermaid deal History aired (Yo Adrian and other investors would certainly like to see some return), they are trying to get in front of the other study as it nears release, or like many of the fourth and fifth level bigfooters they just want some media exposure. The whole thing was met with some coverage, many snickers at the local news level and generally a “ho-hum”.
Take aways from this story:
- What little we watched showed some very awkward people and some telling body language.
- Where was Super Dave, the mastermind of the Ketchum study? Distancing oneself Dave? Not wanting to show up at a publicized event where service might happen? Just too busy with the UFO people now? Nobody willing to spring for the airfare? Consult Kulls, he is good at soliciting charity.
Broken Neck Mountain
We can only imagine the glee when that crew coined that phrase. Such a tricky twist to a famous phrase, they probably imagined it would join bigfootery place names like Ape Canyon and Bluff Creek. Oh the back slapping that must have ensued.
We’ve followed it from afar for a year or more. Owl calls, deer meeting their natural demise, it must be bigfoot. But it got better when mis-litigation got involved. The irony of buddying up to the mountain forefathers and those that a member of the bored use to heap abuse upon as the Bigfoot Research Buster was not lost on us. The fact that an effort to cut out the main person involved in getting on to the property, fights over ownership of “evidence”, booting people from facebook bigfootery groups were all too familiar when mis-litigation inserts herself in the mix. But we digress from the point of this particular part of the post.
Last weekend we had the distinct pleasure of captaining some true patriots, and not the right or left wing political hate speech patriots, we are talking true patriots who serve US. While they were all experienced, this particular river was new to all but one. I had a full boat of them, my travel and BFE S-6 pard had four. They were brilliant and interesting people, it was a pleasure to introduce them to the beast of east and it was an excellent trip. Like magicians, I cannot reveal all the secrets on how captains select customers and each company does it a little different with repeat customer requests being honored first. But a certain amount of seniority and a keen eye got me these people and it was a really great day on the river.
Each trip ends differently, sometimes you get a heartfelt thanks, sometimes a thanks and a tip and sometimes you get an invite to unwind in the evening. In this case we got an invite to stop by and have dinner and some beverages, which is usually a good thing well received. They invited us back to the cabin they had rented, more like a big house with an amazing porch and view to go along with it. As we shot the breeze into the evening an owl was startled and let us know about it. One thing led to another, some campfire bigfoot stories were told and we shared with them the broken neck mountain saga. Here’s where it gets interesting, three of those customers called themselves analysts. An i-pad was produced as this rustic cabin had wifi and we proceeded to google up broken neck mountain and show them an aerial photo and some facebook posts from the mountain. One mid twenty something took an email address and said he could probably tell us more once he had access to his home computer, a clearer mind and some time to look into it.
Today an email appeared, here is the gist of it. The person who had blogged the aerial thought he had scrubbed it by doing a save as picture and then making it a jpg, but the geo data is still embedded in the file once you know how to crack it open and where to look, some of the pictures were also from camera phones and that data was also there and confirmed against the aerial. When you put in those longs and lats it matches, the distinctive drive and pond are there.
Take aways from this story:
Fate can twist and karma is not a concept. Mis-litigation once revealed a location, took great joy in revealing a location actually. We did not release her address that was listed in the failed lawsuit, but perhaps a tit for a tat is appropriate. We did not have a dog in that other hunt, it just seemed very shady to do what she did.
It’s amazing the people we get to meet on the second job, imagine usually making a dozen new friends every weekend for two months.
There are patriots and then there are bitter right-wing, and left-wing blowhards, when you spend time with the real deal it makes your disdain for the others that much stronger.
Ditto the strange bedfellows comment previously made.

We get it. Hate speech, bully’s , threats and spin as vicious as a windmill in a hurricane. We have figured out it is foolish, some would say delusional, to combat windmills, although the journey has been epic. Besides, we (at least two of us) need to get prepared and focused for the fall and two months of constant work and travel. It is a demanding time with little tolerance for poor performance. There is a post left up that explains this if you do some searching.
Our publishing rate will be going down. We’ve kept all of the content but pruned it to the background, leaving enough available for those in the public to get a flavor about what we are about. There are a few important posts in there, we recommend the one about the scarlet B, pseudo science and the dangers of the paranormal pop explosion.
While many in bigfootery may think they get this analogy, only a handful or two posses the intelligence and background to get the subtle layers of it. And that is not meant as a insult, it is a complicated thing that involves literature few explore in depth. If you visited and never read deep into the history here, this is your chance. And if you are new, check out some of the posts left for public reading, in our opinion, they are worth your time.
