The bigfootery apocalypse has arrived. And often times, bigfootery fact is better than bigfootery fiction, even with erotica.
Before heading out to the PNW version of Palm Springs, a brief idea and a few quotes.
The Idea – Hosted the analysts again, it is nice to get repeat customers ask for you. Boss takes notice. During the second annual fire water and fire get together, we were discussing bigfootery, how one needs a scorecard to keep all the personalities straight and to try to keep up with the latest alliance, falling out or cultation. Her suggestion was a relationship tree, something they use all the time. It is a graphical approach to mapping people and the interrelationships. We were keen on the idea until we started to reflect upon the Facebook explosion and how dynamic the relationships are. You would literally need software and have to spend time on it nearly every day to fully map the relationships. We also realized that as we found the hubs, many would be quite pleased they yield such influence and power. Perhaps in the future, but that is doubtful as the following quotes sum up our opinion of bigfootery at this moment. Enough said, some will get it, some will get some of it, many will have it fly right past them, dat’s bigfootery.
“The Bigfootery Index (BI) is a function of Facebook groups and members cubed times the number of bigfoot shows on TV. The BI has reached critical mass, there is no shutting that sucker down now. “
BFE Founder and Chief Muck Stirrer
“That was the trouble with the supernatural, Vimbai thought–you didn’t know what laws ruled it, and what was a coincidence and what was a sign and what was weird and what wasn’t. It was like a whodunit, only the clues refused to be arranged into any sort of hierarchy or a straight narrative, and most of the time it wasn’t even clear if they indeed were clues; a jigsaw puzzle where all the pieces were blank.”
“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie–deliberate, contrived and dishonest–but the myth–persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”
John F. Kennedy
“Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also at you.”
Enquiring minds wonder what’s been up. Simple, the AT is what has been up, and down, then back up again. Training and long weekends (and nine continuous days) away as it is slowly enjoyed section by section. A good use of leisure time as opposed to those prowling away in the bigfootery scene, but your mileage may certainly vary. So some this and that, and some coming attractions. First the headlines, with short by lines.
Bigfooter dumps drone in thermal feature at national park. When will this silliness end? You’re not going to come upon something smart and elusive with something making such noise, maybe a grower’s plot by no bigfoot. We call for a moratorium of drones in natural areas and only flights in designated areas.
Bigfootery continues to be wacky with Facebook especially feeding the masses; habituators, cloakers, the hucksters, the scientific/rational skeptic, the bullies, little cults, cliques and dictators, it just continues to grow into a seething ugly mess.
DNA fails and walking bears. Enough said.
We can’t let the over one year anniversary of Hovey’s suit being dismissed with prejudice pass by, she had to remove and denounce her “copyright” of someone else’s picture. Remember how mean-spirited this suit was and how she was ready to reveal witness information in her lust for revenge. One her buddies was spamming a facebook group about a conference he promotes/runs and pronounced it a victory by making someone pay money to defend the suit, which is text-book frivolous litigation – a keeper given his threats of the past. There are sadly some very nasty people who haunt bigfootery.
We could point out a bunch of bigfootery silver and gold from the last few months, sell outs craving TV exposure, terribly inappropriate behaviors, the usual stuff of bigfootery, but time intrudes.
We are working on a few feature-length posts. One is a 12-step method for ending bigfoot addiction, let’s just say we were at step 6 until an idle hour pulled us back in — carn sarn it. Another article is, What/Who is OBO and how that relates to the golden Ohio bigfoot conference goose.
We will leave our readers, haters and the curious with this. We know, we are not particularly happy we know, be careful in the wish to know, what you think you know, you really don’t.
It seems he was a card carrying member of Roger Patterson’s bigfoot club and recipient of his newsletter as a youngster. So, his interest in sasquatch was indoctrinated at a young age and not as an adult and academic that happened upon the topic and bravely sailed into the trying academic waters of science mainstreamer’s view as being on the fringe. This erodes our already dimming view of the foot doc, can someone say confirmation bias? We previously posted a “scholarly” article where he attempted to use a bit of science and flawed logic to validate one of his religiously based beliefs, so perhaps we are getting more of the same with the bigfoot stuff. He is certainly trying to turn a few bucks from it, which we are mostly ok with.
Myron had the following word problem in math:
You call a hotel to make a reservation for nine rooms, they say they have two different types of rooms each with nine openings. The hotel also says they have other types of rooms, but not enough of those types to meet your reservation. At a minimum how many rooms does the hotel have available?
Myron answers nine and does not pass the sixth grade proficiency test, but he does pass the Huckster test.
Blurring lines is big in bigfootery. The hucksters have to swerve and spin often.
When you sue someone with, in our opinion, greed, unclean hands ( a legal term that fit) and a mean spirit in your heart, and then utterly lose, you gotta blur some lines to salvage the situation.
When things are slow for the conference you promote you gotta blur the lines. You tell the masses the lodging is almost sold out and you will end ticket sales in a week. Fact is a search of the lodge shows two types of rooms with at least nine available (the highest number you can reserve at one time so there may be more) and weeks later you can still buy the wonka deal. Blur the lines, certainly don’t mention there is a huge gospel event in the area driving lodging activity. Huckstering at its’ best.
But those examples are beside the point of this post, we are contemplating if Mountain Monsters blurs the lines. There are a number of “reality shows” that are blurring lines to various degrees, Amish Mafia comes to mind. We just wonder what the deal is with Mountain Monsters. They always have fresh intel, better than average “evidence” from witnesses and generally a bunch of action each week. In a hit and miss bigfootery world, these guys hit home runs every week. The Yahoo show was especially action packed in terms of tracks and the calls. Same thing for the show before that one. That gets us to thinking about if they are blurring lines. Another hot topic has been if our Appalachian brothers are like the Amish, they stay clean-shaven until married and then grow a dope ass beard. Enquiring minds, and all that.
We are also enjoying via the DVR Survivor man. Les is eloquently framing the thought process of someone facing the possibility that Sasquatch exists with great rationality. The videography has also been really good in our opinion. Standing, well we have run into his type, not that unusual in bigfootery. The blurring line point, as a call back, is that some of the “bigfoot researchers” we have taken exception to in the past are very Standing like, although they don’t know it and would never admit it.
