Lemurians on Mt. Shasta

The November issue of FATE magazine brings us The Lemurians of Mount Shasta, by K. Martin. Mt. Shasta has its share of lore regarding UFOs, Bigfoot, and all kinds of mystical, paranormal encounters; fascinating. I wonder why some mountains have this kind of history, while others don't seem to?

Top Ten Crypto Stories

Cryptomundo has a piece on the The Top Ten Cryptozoology Stories for 2007. I like the dwarf manatee. :)

There was also a very interesting story of 27 year old Cham H’pnhleng of Cambodia, who is a “wild child” living amongst “wild men.” From Cryptomundo:
Ro Cham H’pnhieng, 27, was discovered on the edge of the Cambodian jungle in January 2007, after she was caught trying to steal food left under a tree. She was seen with a hairy Wild Man, a Nguoi Rung. Reportedly, she had been kidnapped in 1989 by the wild people and taken into the jungle. Attempts to find the Nguoi Rung (below) were made, with no positive results.

Preston Dennett: Supernatural California


Sigh, well, another book to add to my list; Preston Dennett's Supernatural California: A Golden State Guide to Ufos, Extraterrestrials, Ghosts, Hauntings, Cryptozoological Creatures, Psychics, Mediums, Miracles, Mystical Spots, Buried Treasure. . .
I've read Dennett's UFOs Over Topanga Canyon, which was good, this looks promising as well. An eariler post here on Frame 352 cites an article Dennett wrote a few years ago on Sasquatch on Mt. Rainier in the 1800s: 1895 Encounter: Sasquatch on Mt. Rainier

Crypto TV : On the Track

Neat resource full of videos on weird creatures. Great music too!
On the Track

Cabinet of Wonders: Strange Bigfoot

Checking on my “who links to me” link, I found that the Cabinet of Wonders blog (a great blog overall) has a linked to Frame 352 in his article on the high strangeness Bigfoot encounters in The day Bigfoot went zorbing. A good piece with links to interesting places; he’s also the author of a Darklore article The Unbelieveable Strangeness of Bigfoot. (Interesting, he mentions Stan Johnson (who is deceased) who is one of the subjects of the book I'm working on.)

Book: Historical Bigfoot

Historical Bigfoot, by Chad Arment, is on my list. I've read a few reviews of the book over on Amazon.com (by the way, check out my own reviews and Listomanias!) and it seems interesting, and a good resource. I don't believe the book delves into theories or attempts to solve anything, just a record of news clippings from the 1800s to about 1940.

Since I've ordered Captured! (Stanton Friedman's and Kathleen Marden's book on Barney and Betty Hill) the other day, I have to wait on this one.

Lisa Shiel: The Invisible World, Part 1

Bigfoot, fairies and the paranormal, linked more than we might think . . .

Lisa Shiel has another great post on her Bigfoot Quest blog. This time, she writes:
All paranormal phenomena are connected.
I think so too, as do many others. Read more of her thoughts on

The Invisible World, Part One.


Patrick Harpur, in his book Damien Reality, writes about this very kind of thing. It’s a book I recommend to anyone who’s interested in this area.

The Blogsquatcher on Skepticism

Or, as he titled his blog entry: Skepticism and the skeptical skeptics who skeptify us . . .

Like The Blogsquatcher, I'm also intrigued (and baffled) by what makes "skeptics" tick, most particularly the pathological-chronic types, bless their little Pelicanist heads.

Blogsquatcher directs us to Micheal Prescott's blog, who also wonders at the mindset of the "skeptic" and does it very well. I've followed Prescott's blog for awhile now; he writes very well and insightfully about this peculair breed.

Part of what makes skeptics what they are may be the need to be in control, according to Prescott. I agree.

Take a look at the Blogsquatcher's blog, as well as Prescott's; you'll find a lot of good things on both.

Lisa Shiel: Native American Fairy Lore

The Native American May-may-gway-shi.

Lisa Shiel has a new book coming out next fall: Strange Michigan. It’s on the list!

In her blog entry Native American Fairy Lore, and in her new book, Lisa references the May-may-gway-shi, as type of fairy entity:
It seems that the Algonquian Indians have legends of the May-may-gway-shi, the North American equivalent of the fairy. The Algonquian legends associate the May-may-gway-shi with ancient red-ocher rock art from the Pre-Columbian era. The Burnt Bluff pictographs fall within that era. Some legends say the fairies created the rock art.

The Burnt Bluff pictographs depict humanoid figures with barrel chests, wide shoulders, and almost no neck. The pictographs resemble similar figures found in ancient rock art from the Four Corners region of the U.S. The figures all resemble Bigfoot far more than humans.

Peter Guttilla’s Bigfoot Files

A must have book for any true esoteric or Bigfoot researcher.

I just finished this book, and enjoyed it very much. It’s full of accounts of Bigfoot sightings (and a few other weird beings) of the stranger kind. UFOs, orbs, and much more high strangeness encounters in connection with Bigfoot are related in this book.

I’ll share some of the sightings from this book, as well as others, later on; these encounters include the three toed tracks, webbed prints, and creatures with red or orange glowing eyes.

Aside from the juicy collection of really weird things, is Peter Guttilla himself. I love his attitude. These accounts exist, and he has no patience with those researchers who continue to ignore, dismiss, or mock such encounters. Guttilla doesn’t have any patience with the skeptical camp either. Good for him. Enough is enough; now let’s get on with the investigations, and stop debating if there’s anything to investigate. (The same can be said of UFOs.)

Beware the Squirrel!

Squirrels of Doom

Who knew. Squirrels, like mating hedgehogs and owls, are up to no good.

We all know mating hedgehogs are responsible for crop circles.

And that owls are behind the Mothman sightings, the Flatwoods Monster encounter, and the Kelly Hopkinsville entities. (It’s true, and we know it’s true, because pathological skeptic Joe Nickell has told us so.)

Turns out squirrels are behind Bigfoot sightings; at least the ones in Florida. Big squirrel, not Big Foot, in north Florida

This isn’t at all comforting you know. Do you realize how many squirrels there are just in my backyard?!

From Blogsquatcher: More on Hoaxing Hoaxes Who Hoax

Part three of the saga from Blogsquatcher. Too bad there are people out there that do this, but it's a given in UFOlogy and Bigfoot research.

A Little Bit of Bigfoot Synchronicity

I’m reading Peter Gutilla’s Bigfoot Files, which I’m enjoying very much. Last night I read the chapter The Lemon Grove Hoax. Very interesting case. (Of course, aren’t they all?) I don’t know if Gutilla set it up intentionally or not, but the way the chapter started out, combined with the “set-up” of the title, had me assuming at first it was a case of hoaxing. Well, not so fast . . .

I go to read what’s become one of my favorite bigfoot blogs (others being Lisa Shiel’s Bigfoot Quest, for one) The Blogsquatcher, and see this: Hoaxes and the Hoaxing Hoaxers Who Hoax Them: Culpeper. Sadly, in Blogsquatcher’s case, it seems like a case of someone behaving badly.

Peter Gutilla Interview

I’m reading Peter Gutilla’s Bigfoot Files, and enjoying it immensely. Just for fun and interest, here’s an interview with Gutilla from the High Desert Research Project.

More Fairy-Bigfoot Thoughts

From Lisa Shiel. (Bigfoot Quest.) I like her thoughts on the idea of Bigfoot as Fairy. Thinking of Bigfoot as a fairy; explains a lot of the anomalous happenings surrounding many a Bigfoot encounter, as well as the elusive nature of Bigfoot.

Redfern on Shrinking Sherwood and Spectral Sasquatch

Nick Redfern has an item on his “There’s Something in the Woods. . .” on the sad news of the shrinking Sherwood Forest -- and the “Spectral Sasquatch." Appears that people have been seeing large, hairy man like creatures for a long time over there . . .

The Bigfoot Fairy Connection

Lisa Shiel of Bigfoot Quest and author of Backyard Bigfoot, has an entry on her blog on one of my favorite topics: Bigfoot and a faery connection.The Bigfoot-Fairies Connection. Lisa promises more to come on this.

In May of 2006 I wrote a piece for my Trickster’s Realm column on Binnall of America on this idea: Fairies, Bigfoot and Hauntings.
