Brian left a comment for us within the last week. It is under the Gorillas in our Midst post, but to save time we will repeat it: Vargo tells us, “ YOU ARE AN IDIOT”. We’ve been called worse. Most of the crew are secure in their intellect, so no worries there.
Here’s the thank you part. Thanks to Brian we did some research, his name led us to two sites we were until now unfamiliar with. The first was the facebook Bigfoot page. There are actually two, we are talking about the one that does not have the picture of Bob H. or Patty depending upon your perspective, but rather the one that has an artist conception. It is easy to find. What a site, a poster child for bad bigfootery. One has to see and read it to believe it, and BELIEVE they do. Their Top 10 researchers and Top 50 films are gems. We especially learned much from the detailed analysis they did to pronounce these films legit, learning greatly about the morphology and behavioral characteristics of our mysterious forest friends. Simply amazing, sad, funny and scary all at once. It is one of the aspects of bigfootery that is a complete albatross upon those that have some serious interest in the topic and demonstrates our adage that a truck full of BS can take you far in bigfootery. It says much of you Mr. Vargo , and makes us feel better about your comment, that you would fan up to that place. Thanks for making us more aware of the wide world of facebook bigfooting.
The second site that our research of the Vargster led us to is very wrong on two different levels, but is still worth a hardy thanks. This site has what some of the skeptics refer to as a high level of “Woo”. Blobby pictures, cruddy speculation, another stellar example of bad bigfootery. But that is only the first level of wrong. Before that aspect of wrong is explained it is only fair that we mention this site building bigfooter has amassed an impressive library of video resources, even a few rare ones that we found quite useful. If you follow the link below poke around in there as there are roses hiding in the briars. The wrong part is some of those videos are probably tramping upon some copy write issues like bigfoot running through a swamp. But even in this wrong we found a silver lining. This site has the entire Caramel production of Bigfoot Lives available for viewing. A fascinating video, filled with hype, Javaguy making a fashion statement with a feather in his cap (perhaps it was an offering and has some mysterious power) and some just plain wrong things, it is the ultimate bigfootery travelogue/legend meets bad science. We must again thank Brian for his comment as it did allow us to see this bigfootery gold without spending a dime.
Here is the link if you want to see it for yourself. You might want to look soon.
Thanks again Brian for your well wishes as it gave us a number of interesting leads.
