Movie Meltdown - Episode 206
Recently, as we sat down to discuss a ridiculous Bigfoot movie, we veered off into a different area. One of personal stories and weird circumstances. Of strange things happening not on the big screen, but in the real world. The session was so interested, that we decided that it needed to stand on it's own. As a subsection of our "Tales from the Cryptids" series. A reality-based tangent that we call... "Bigfoot: Myths and Legends". Hopefully you'll find it as engaging as we did when recording it.
And while jumping at the slightest sound, we also mention... a local Bigfoot hunter, shooting a movie, Native American stories, The Ultraterrestrials, a baby crying, a 80-pound barn cat eating cattle, living in the sticks, a group of Boy Scouts, The Grass Man, stolen fish, that irrational fear, The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas, it's coming through the field towards the house, mimicry, infrasound, The Pope Lick Monster, The Incident at Loch Ness, the world champion hide and seek player, the '94 UFO sighting, shaky 16mm, there's always that next step, ...and then I would have a great blurry photo of Bigfoot... like everybody else, hitting the wall of no evidence, The Trimble Country Beast, John Keel, Bigfoot on a totem pole, You don't know in the moment... and it brings back that mystery, squeezed a shot off, Loveland Frogman, Monster Quest, he just screams 'Sasquatch!' and runs off into the night, something was killing something, my wife walked away that morning, I dreamed that I died, the legendary gorilla, a sense of other-ness, there was no such thing as Bigfoot in 1953, the Patterson footage, the Chapman family, a .357 snub-nose, cattle mutilations, flooded to make a lake, The Minnesota Iceman, hating Air Supply, some farmer shot me, my Chewy figure looks just like Bigfoot, The Milton Lizard, digging into the ground, The Hillbilly Beast, sheet metal for a roof, the foggiest day in the history of the county, The Fairdale Bigfoot, coyotes fighting, I was in shock and for us to say that we know everything... is crazy.
"If you have a rational, credible person telling you a truly personal story... you've gotta give them a lot of credit..."
