Minerva Monster Day 2016

Coming up on September 23rd and 24th in Minerva, Ohio - Minerva Monster Day 2016.

Minerva Monster Day is a cryptid-themed film festival. Here is some info from the promo trailer for it:

"Minerva Monster Day in Minerva, Ohio. The event will be held September 23rd and 24th. Minerva Monster day is a cryptid-themed, small town festival that centers around the subject of a famous Bigfoot-type creature said to live near the town. While last years' event acted as the official premiere for the Small Town Monsters' production, Minerva Monster, this one will see screenings of multiple films across a variety of unusual creature topics from Bigfoot to Loch Ness Monster. The Minerva Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the event which will also play host to a speaking presentation from renowned museum curator, author and lecturer, Loren Coleman.
"Minerva Monster day will kick off on Friday, September 23rd with a short, amateur, monster film festival. Local residents and people who plan on attending the event are encouraged to make and submit their own short, monster-themed, all ages appropriate films to be screened at the historic Roxy Theater in downtown Minerva. There will be prizes for the winning films selected by a panel of judges. Among the movies screening at Saturdays' event are I've Seen Bigfoot, Mystery at Loch Ness, Beast of Whitehall, Minerva Monster, and more.
"The 2015 version of Minerva Monster Day was a blowout success with as many as fifteen hundred people attending, and four sellout screenings of Minerva Monster. Due to over-crowding last year, this years' September 24th screenings and speaking presentations will be held in the high school gym. Monster-themed vendors will be set up at the neighboring Minerva City Park where the annual Oktoberfest will also be taking place. Among the vendors are local Bigfoot research groups, and sellers of apparel and board games, as well as Small Town Monsters. Plan to spend the day, as there will be monster movies playing into the evening.

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
