Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern

Monsters of the Deep – Book Review

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern I’ve never really shied away from the fact that when it comes to cryptids, I’m probably least interested in those of the aquatic variety. Lake monsters, sea serpents, and other anomalous water-based creatures just don’t typically hold my interest. And to be totally honest, I’m not even sure why. […]

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 2

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 2

Now we knew it wasn’t a needle in a haystack, a small, dark gray ring lost in the middle of the Adirondacks somewhere along the trail. It was right there in camp. My wife looked at me and said, “We are going back for it.” If you read my last post on my most recent […]

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

Last week, I wrote about the giant squid that washed ashore in South Africa, and how interesting it was that I was concurrently reading Nick Redfern’s new book, Monsters of the Deep. Well, today my feed is abuzz about this new photo allegedly showing the Loch Ness Monster, which is obviously also covered in Nick’s […]

Giant Squid Washes Ashore in South Africa

Giant Squid Washes Ashore in South Africa

Synchronicity is a funny thing. All week, I’ve been reading an advance copy of Monsters of the Deep, the new book by Nick Redfern which covers all sorts of sea serpents and lake monsters, and then I come across this story about a giant squid washing up on a South African beach. Of course, sea serpents […]

Assquatch Taxidermy

Assquatch and Other Taxidermy Oddities

The newest Bigfoot-related story making the rounds on the social media newsfeeds lately is the Assquatch – a taxidermy creation using the hindquarters of a deer (anus and all, apparently) to make Sasquatch faces. Some are cute, and some are downright disturbing. But this is far from the first cryptid to be created from actual […]

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

I’ve always been fascinated by out of place animal stories. There’s just something so subtly unsettling about them. Because ultimately, they can’t all just be escaped circus animals or exotic pets. When I was 5 years old, there was a report of a baby elephant seen in my neighborhood of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Nothing ever […]

Bigfoot Running Challenge

The Bigfoot Running Challenge

In these trying times of social distancing and self-isolation, my wife and I are always trying to find fun things to do as a family with my son, to just get us out of the house and to get some exercise. Since nearly everything is closed, we mainly stick to walking through the park right […]

The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter Directed by Alan Megargle & Jesse Morgan The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter is a documentary that is precisely what its title implies – a focused examination on one woman’s fairly recent encounter with an alleged Bigfoot. There are of course some other corroborating stories […]

Jose Canseco Worries that Bigfoot and Aliens May Get Coronavirus

A little over a year ago, before we had to worry about people hoarding toilet paper, social distancing, face masks, and the true horrors of this pandemic, disgraced MLB star Jose Canseco was simply content with hoarding wacky conspiracy theories about extraterrestrialss teaching him how to time travel. Oh, and many, many steroids. But now […]

Ghost hunting in the Adirondacks

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks

“His thought turned to the Ring, but there was no comfort there, only dread and danger.” – Me, thinking about breaking some bad news to my wife (from J.R.R. Tolkien, of course) I have been a camper for as long as I can remember. I think the earliest photos of my parents taking me camping […]
