Greetings fellow Forteans, Anomalists, & UFOlks!
It's a Bigfoot extravaganza this issue - having recently watched documentarian Seth Breedlove's On the Trail of Bigfoot series and thoroughly enjoyed it, I've chosen to share one of the six episodes he's shared for free via his YouTube channel. The episode in question is the one we've touched upon in past eNews installments where Seth and crew visited the Texas-based NAWAC (North American Wood Ape) group's "Area-X" research site deep in the Ouachita Mountains in Southeastern Oklahoma. All of the episodes are excellent and I urge interested Anomalists to give them a try. I also highly recommend his other series - the ones I've watched and enjoyed include: The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear (2018), Invasion on Chestnut Ridge (2017), The Mothman of Point Pleasant (2017), Casefiles (2017), and Minerva Monster (2015) - most of which are available on various streaming platforms.
Also in keeping with the Cryptozoological Extravaganza... for this week's eNews Book-of-the-Week, I've chosen one of the bigger and deeper historical overviews of the 1970s era birth of modern Bigfoot research.
In other Bigfoot / Cryptozoology news...
"Brad Ginn and Madelyn Durand, a couple of Western Kentucky University students, said they were awakened in the middle of the night last weekend during a camping trip to Mammoth Cave by a gun-toting man hellbent on tracking down the legendary creature."
Those last two stories of a couple's strange experience while camping at Mammoth Cave reflect other recent darker headlines involving acts of gun violence committed by people with extreme "alternative" views of reality ranging from this Arizona case of a gun-wielding Bigfoot believer to a murder case in New York where lawyer's say the shooter in the thrall of a conspiracy theory they call the "QAnon delusion":
"A 24-year-old man who has been charged with shooting to death a reputed New York mob boss earlier this year thought he was under the influence of QAnon, pro-Trump Internet postings about the president supposedly battling a cabal of liberal elites, his lawyer wrote in a recent submission to New York state court."
Of course these two incidents pale in comparison to the terrible tragedies in El Paso and Dayton. As I've mentioned before, I am a survivor of a 1979 mass-shooting / sniper event at San Antonio’s 1979 Fiesta "Battle of the Flowers" Parade. I've followed the transformation of the high school suicide cluster phenomenon and workplace rampage shootings of the 1980s and 90s as they've morphed into the surreal "Mass-Shooter Mayhem" / "Amok America" time we are living through now. I've reported on far too many of these incidents over the past twelve years on my PsiOp-Radio show. As much as I wish for us to find a solution to end these atrocities and as sickened as it makes me to research the topic, I find myself continuing to research the issue and revisit past attacks. To that end, I've been watching the Showtime TV series, Active Shooter: America Under Fire. It is a very powerful documentary series that focuses on the events themselves as told through the stories of survivors and emergency responders. Anyway - be careful out there; look out for each other and take care of one another...
. . .
Meanwhile, the UFO circus continues with reviews of the recent MUFON 50th Anniversary Symposium, continued critical analysis of the state of verified information about Tom DeLonge's To The Stars Academy and the military UFO work of Luis Elizondo, reflection on the life and work of Mario Pazzaglini, deep-state / parapolitical audio interview with ARG (Alternate/Augmented Reality Games) pioneer Joseph Matheny on transmedia storytelling and the FBI's recent warning against QAnon conspiracy theories as potential Domestic Terror Threat, and many other weird news stories for you to read.
Finally, we pay our respects to recently passed paranormal researcher Rosemary Ellen Guiley:
"She authored and compiled nearly 65 books, including books in the "Fate Presents" series, which included her newest title, Planet Bigfoot (2019)."
