Now they're talking about Bachelor's Grove, a ghosthuntin' hotspot now reimagined for footie.

Yep, a secluded footie sanctuary surrounded by 12 million people, and pestered by morons of all types.

Where do you expect these kids to play if not at the old creepy cemetery? The freeway? I'm so sick and tired of you "get off my lawn" types always wanting the neighborhood kids to play...wait what?

But seriously, Bigfoot is in all of us. Well not in in, just "in". So he's here, he's there, he's everywhere (you aren't). He's Bigfoot and we're Bigfoot. He's even a part of the goodwill you have toward your fellow man. And now he's also in Chicago so we might as well get used to it. There's no ignoring this one. The main consequence being when a breaking story pops up on the Alibaba/BFRO/NAWAC Amalgamated Industries Bigfoot website pinpointing an encounter in say west Schaumburg or Joliet, we'll have to reluctantly admit we already know that one is Bigfoot fer sure.

Is Urban Bigfoot more sophisticated than Forest Bigfoot? Why exactly, are they moving to the big smoke? The culture? The night life? Theatre? Pizza? Chucking rocks at footers and eating berries must get pretty boring after a while. What does Big City Bigfoot think of Hillbilly Bigfoot? These are important questions that aren't being asked.

I bet urban Bigfoot is leaving stick structures for their backwoods cousins, so they can find their address when they come and visit.

Bigfoot can't cut the package open but he always appreciates that Mom sends him the nice hickory nuts from down south which do not grow in his parts.

Like the Predator, who easily adapted to jungle and city life, Bigfoot can adapt to any situation necessary. Also, much like the Predator, if it bleeds, you can kill it. The problem, though, is that once you see it, you'll be so stunned at how human-like it is, you won't dare pull the trigger. Its 7-10 feet of hairy, hulking fury, sloping forehead and Inspector Gadget-like arms will reflect the common man so much that you'll fear a criminal charge for any shot fired.

To address your main point, I'm not a movie fanboy sort in the least nor do I give a flying **** about any of the Star Trek™, Star Wars®, DC™, Marvel™, LOTR or Harry Potter® pablum, but I am truly hopeful the yet-to-come Predator™ re-boot will be as awesome as the first one.

I just realized that the GSH on the Bears jerseys doesn't have anything to do with Halas. Instead, Chicago: Gablemp's Summer Home.

I can definitely agree re: Harry Potter and Star Trek, although I do enjoy Marvel, but I admit to being a bit Marvelled out! I also liked LOTR but couldn't be arsed with the Hobbit films, I'll get round to them one day!

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Predator looks set to be a bit disappointing by the sounds of it. They're going for a more comedic version, by all accounts, which for me sounds abysmal.

Something I found out recently, the original version of #2 was supposed to be set during World War 2! Now that'd be a good Predator movie.

Comedic? Damn. They're gonna **** it up. The portrayal of utter seriousness in hunting the near-phantom was a very important element of the first movie. The constantly mounting tension as the bodies of the pesky human badasses pile up and with no end in sight to the brutality of a more powerful cosmic badass who wants to kill you simply for the honor of killing. And you're right, set in WW2 would have been a helluva concept.

I know, lol. I loved the first one, the cast was just perfect for me, and the dialogue.

The second film I always watch as though I'm reading a comic or a graphic novel, if that makes sense, I think it works better in that way.

Here's an article about a test screening for the new movie:

Comrades, brothers and sisters, I give you Erich Hunter:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07754L8VC...d47e321de5d8b7
Quote:
Kryptopithecus gimlinpattersoni, A New Species of Bipedal Primate (Primates: Hominidae) From Humboldt County, California USA . . . In this study, the animal represented by the Bigfoot is given the binomial name Kryptopithecus gimlinpattersoni sp. nov. and it is described on the basis of photographic evidence. The validity of the newly recognized biotaxon is discussed and it is concluded that it is not a hypothetical concept.
Dr. Hunter's bio:
Quote:
Dedicated to spiritual and esoteric healing modalities, Dr. Hunter has developed a unique healing synthesis that transforms body, mind, and spirit.

After working for over a decade as a Ph.D researcher, and award winning educator in field of the Biological Sciences, he fully awakened to his spiritual path and made a major life transition to follow his calling as a healer. While on his honeymoon in Bali, he was initiated into the healing arts by a highly respected Balinese healer that recognized his healing gifts.

Upon his return to California, his life became a quest for studying, practicing, and now teaching the most effective and unusual healing methods dating back to the 1400’s. Bringing the noble spirit of scientific inquiry to his intuitive wizardry, Dr. Hunter merges the best of both worlds with a grounded and compassionate approach.

Originally from New York, he now resides with his wife in Ojai, California. He enjoys taking walks in nature, bicycle riding, studying alternative science, esoteric healing methods, and spiritual ceremony.
Helping keep the nuttery in bigfootery, he is.

"Kryptopithecus gimlinpattersoni". This is not surprising, but, I still find it odd. Why shove Gimlin's name in there like he was a co-discoverer? He was there, but he didn't have that much to do with it (the supposed filming of a real Bigfoot, not the hoax. Gimlin was all up in that business). It was Patterson's project, Patterson's film and Patterson did the shooting (apparently). Gimlin was just Patterson's monkey boy... and part time wig wearer. It was Patterson's thing. It's probably been addressed here before, but when did Patterson's flick become the PGF, rather than "the Patterson footage"? My memory may be failing me, but, I don't recall Gimlin having such status back in the old days of post Bluff Creek footery. It was all Patterson's "discovery" and Gimlin might get a mention, every now and then, for being there with him.

I don't know when it officially became the PGF exactly, but I think it may have had something to do with ole Gimmy-cheeks taking them to court over it. I forget so much about this stuff each year, because I keep learning new words, like bumfuzzle, never heard that before.

It's like naming a new species of dinosaur, decades after it's discovery and adding the name of some doofus who drove the paleontologist to the site and lugged some casts around.

It's legit.
He followed all the procedures for naming a creature based on a photograph.

Which one of you is going to name the Skunk Ape?
GO!

I'm officially late to the party. We've I've been seriously missing out on the plethora of comedy that is Sylvanic/Todd Standing. I bet I've been aware of him 10 years or more, just never really paid enough attention.

The feature quote from his home page is about portraits:
"After spending time in the field with Todd Standing... I am firmly convinced he has in fact filmed portraits of the Sasquatch face."
-John Bindernagel, Ph.D

That's the best quote he can extract from the famously credulous Bindernagel? Oh and Meldrum had to chime in:
"I am also firmly convinced the stunning Sasquatch face portraits were filmed. I marvel at the patience and skill he must have had in capturing each and every portrait in the exact same pose and in exactly the same spot every ******* time."
-Don "The Snake" Meldrum, Ph.D

As for reviews of his movie Discovering Bigfoot:

"If you loved the original Patterson-Gimlin film...you're gonna fall in love all over again with the way this movie wanted to be that movie instead."
-Bob Gimlin, PRCA

Oh and he's suing the government to prove in a court of law that Sasquatch is real so he can finally say "...Fish and Wildlife can no longer deny our claims." Yeah them Fish and Wildlife people can be real claims ogres. And he'll be using the movie itself as the evidence. I've heard he's some kind of wealthy-ish ne'er-do-well (family?) with a lot of time and money to spend. Which I'm sure is why that thinker-thunker Meldrum got caught sniffing around. There was a cache of cash for him to stash. Standing couldn't be making all that much money from this could he? Edit: He's sure trying.

He's discovered the BoB (Beasts of Beasts) yet only wants to capitalize on it through vigorously marketing a cheesy movie that shows different Sasquatch "portraits" while laughing at itself. When you're stupid you inevitably make the stupid assumption that everyone else is stupid also.
Stupid might be why there's so much more there (on the website) too yet there isn't.

A few of months ago, a guy I know, let's call him Mr. X, posted a couple of pictures on his private Facebook page showing what appeared to be a human femur measuring 23 1/4 inches long. He said he found it along with several very large teeth in a bog in the upper Midwest.

I engaged him asking questions and was told he sent the bone and teeth to a person he knew, let's call him Mr. Y, who does DNA analysis at a large Midwest University.

I asked another friend who is a doctor regarding the size of the femur and he said that would equal someone a little over 7'7" tall.

So, this is where I thought there might be a faint heartbeat detected in my hopes for science to acknowledge the existence of Sasquatch. A major university in possession of samples where DNA could be extracted and examined, how cool.

Upon further inquiry, I was told that Mr. Y won't return Mr. X's email or take his phone calls. I found this to be puzzling, but figured there was a rationale explanation, just didn't know what it was. I have friends who work at the same University and was hoping to find Mr. Y through them and ask him about the samples directly, but they don't know him.

Prior to all of this, Mr. X and Mr. Y were on good terms, and Mr. X considered Mr. Y a friend. Mr. Y even visited Mr. X and spent time with him out in the field.

Statement of Acknowledgment

I fully acknowledge, as Resume noted, this was an extreme long-shot. The back story is entirely hearsay, so I have no way of knowing the validity of it in any part. The only aspect of this that I can state as fact is there are pictures of the samples, but even those have issues. Mr. X did not photograph the bone along side a measuring tape, so his claim of 23 1/4 inches is difficult to substantiate. One photo was taken next to a standard 8 1/2 x 11" piece of paper, so using that, it does appear close to his declared measurement. Even though it may not be exact, it is still a very large bone.

Conclusion
Was I hoping this would be the real deal? Absolutely. And yes, I do have copies of the pictures of the bone, but have not been given permission to share, so I won't be posting them, sorry.

Do I think there is a conspiracy, men in black, type situation going on here? No, I don't. If what Mr. X told me is accurate (and there's no way of conclusively knowing), there were plenty of things he screwed up, so no need to impose something sinister where it doesn't exist.

Am I done barking up this tree? Don't know. We will see. Mr. X has taken down the Facebook posts, but I might still pursue it later. After my dad passed away last year, I decided to take up running and am currently in training hoping to run a marathon by next September, so squatching is taking a backseat to that now. Like I said, we will see.

I'm sure this will spawn lots of questions and will do my best to answer them. Hope everyone has a great upcoming holiday. Cheers.
NL
