5 Reasons to Stay Optimistic about Bigfoot

Last month, the results of a scientific study of purported Bigfoot DNA samples finally emerged into the light. Of thirty samples tests, all but two came from known species such as bears, horses, and even one human. Two samples from the Himalayas are also bears, but of a type never seen before. The journal Nature quoted some Twitter potshots lobbed by scientists, who made scathingly witty comments about how the hair found outside your cabin door isn’t really Bigfoot hair after all. In the midst of the “media merriment,” as Nature put it, keeping your chin up can be a … Click here to read the rest…

Discover the Weirdness Around You

Tunnel vision leads to, well, tunneling straight ahead without taking in the scenery around you. But what is tunnel vision really? It simply means we refuse to look away from one particular goal or idea, stubbornly running toward it while blinding ourselves to everything else. When we enter this mode of thinking, nothing else can get in – no new ideas, no ancillary evidence, nothing. We see that one thing and one thing alone. Like a troll who sees only the bridge he crouches under and whatever might happen to traipse across it, we ignore the rest of the world … Click here to read the rest…

New Mane Braids & Stick Signs

The stick sign and mane braiding phenomena are topics I’ve discussed a great deal, particular in my book Forbidden Bigfoot. These unexplained occurrences have not stopped—nor do they seem like to, though there are periods during which I find very little of either. You might think wintertime would be a lull, but this is not always the case. This winter has been especially harsh up here in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula, with a record number of morning lows dipping well under the zero-degree mark. Snow has been heavy too. The horses and deer have worn down hard-packed paths in the snow, … Click here to read the rest…

Bigfoot Infrasound: Likely or Long Shot?

An ongoing debate about Bigfoot revolves around the issue of infrasound, or sounds that are of such low frequency that humans can’t hear them. Elephants and whales are examples of animals that use infrasound to communicate over long distances. Thunderstorms and even wind can also produce infrasound. Other animals, such as pigeons, seem to be capable of detecting these infrasonic sounds. This may explain why some animals seem able to predict earthquakes—they sense the low-frequency sound of a quake before it can be physically felt. But the big question remains—can Bigfoot produce infrasound? In my research, I have found no … Click here to read the rest…

The Somewhat Factual Adventures of a Demon-Slaying Writer/Librarian

WARNING: Take this post seriously at your own risk. What does a writer/librarian do every day? I solve mysteries. I hunt for treasure. I battle demons bent on destroying everything I hold dear. No really, I do. I find treasures every day—golden nuggets of information that I squirrel away for future use in my writing, but also little treasures in the form of subject headings, call numbers, and genre headings. As a librarian, I catalog both my own books and clients’ books, meaning I spend a lot of time hunting for the perfect nuggets of metadata to describe those books. … Click here to read the rest…
