Inspired by “Bigfoot!” – WQ4D Radio: Oregon Bigfoot

Inspired by “Bigfoot!” – WQ4D Radio — Inspiring Friends Network

How can I expect to find bigfoot if he can disarm me with a thought?"

These are the words of a man who recently went to the woods at night, near the London Trackway with Trackway discoverer Toby Johnson. Without ever seeing a bigfoot, but evidently being near one, this man had fear placed in his head to the point of being reduced to tears. The experience caused him to have a nervous breakdown. He insisted on leaving the woods right then and there, much to the surprise of his party. The experience also left him bedridden for two days.

This witness is a pillar in his community. His position, and his line of work, preclude him from being able to give his name publicly. But he's agreed to appear, along with Toby, on Tuesday's edition of Inspired by Bigfoot. For those who have experienced the "wall of fear," and for those who have read about it, we invite you to join us for this special edition of Inspired by Bigfoot, tomorrow night at 7 p.m. Central, 5 p.m Pacific. Join us at, where the truth confronts accepted science.

Spike TV's 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty

Came across this item on Bigfoot Lunch Club:Bigfoot News | Bigfoot Lunch Club: Spike TV's 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty. So Spike is offering ten million dollars for proof of Bigfoot. Does this encourage the literal hunting of Bigfoot, as in, go forth and kill yourself one? The only proof is a dead body. Especially for ten million dollars. I've scoured the blurb from Spike TV but couldn't find anything specific as to the killing of a Bigfoot, but it's valid to say such an act is implied.
The network has already begun casting contestants for "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty," which will feature scientists, zoologists, seasoned trackers, and actual Bigfoot hunters who all believe in the infamous creature's existence. The teams will be faced with the daunting task of proving to a group of experts that Bigfoot, the hairy ape-like sasquatch, exists with the irrefutable evidence. The winner will be the first team to secure proof – and win the unprecedented $10 million bounty.
What proof is the "irrefutable proof?"
This contest is termed a brazen one; from Spike

"We here at SPIKE have announced a new one-hour reality show, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty," featuring ambitious teams of explorers on a brazen exhibition to unearth real evidence of Bigfoot's existence.

Monster of Boggy Creak Tarot/Oracle Card

My brother-in-law, now deceased, designed his own Tarot/oracle deck in 1979. He called it The White Goddess deck. He was an astrologer, and as you can see, incorporated astrology into his deck. He didn't do the drawings himself -- those were done by an artist he knew at that time, Ida Foreman.
White Goddess oracle deck, Michael Bear, creator, artist Ida Foreman

I hadn't looked at this deck for several years. I had forgotten that Michael used a number of cryptid, creature type images in his deck. I don't remember Michael Bear being particularly interested or knowledgeable about the topic, especially Bigfoot stories. Here's The Monster of Boggy Creak, and yes, he spelt it creak, not creek. I don't know if the misspelling was intentional, but he was a notoriously awful speller, so who knows.

I noticed in the booklet that came with the deck that there is a Bigfoot card listed, but it isn't in the deck. Maybe it got lost, or it could be it just never made it. I don't remember seeing the card, but again, I don't remember much about the deck overall. Here's how the card is described:

Conscious awareness of, not only, your own beliefs, but those of others.
Reversed: Having to be aware, consciously, of the universal subconscious.

The card is given the number 9, "relating to Neptune, the subconscious, daydreams and nightmares, drugs, alochol, habitations of all kinds." (The missing Bigfoot card is also given the number 9) and placed in the suite of spades. He has astrologically assigned "moon square retrograde Neptune" to the card.

 An interesting piece of family history. As to the aesthetics of the deck or its usefulness -- I've never used it and doubt very much I ever will. I'm too involved in family history, including some of what went on in creating the deck.

Animal Forteana: Gratuitous Gleeful Gross-outs: Live Eating

For reasons they only know and I can only make snarky guesses at having to do with testosterone excess and a Ted Nugent lovin' gene, Bigfoot Evidence saw fit to post links and editorial "you go kid!" support to a young man skinning a snake while still alive, as well as eating said snake while alive, as I posted on Animal Forteana: Gratuitous Gleeful Gross-outs: Live Eating
