Inside the Goblin Universe - Coming in January



In January 2017,  Inside the Goblin Universe is coming to Paranormal UK Radio. The show will be hosted by Ronald L Murphy, Jr. and my friend Colin Schneider. Currently they are recording some episodes that with various researchers, including Jonathan Downes and Timothy Renner. Colin recently  asked me to be on it as well, so we will be recording an episode sometime. When there is more info on that, I will post it on this blog.

About the hosts:

Ronald Murphy

"Ron had been called the 'crypto guru' due to his research into the field of cryptozoology, but it is not only strange and hidden creatures that fascinate him. Holding degrees in literature, religious studies, and history, he examines the world of paranormal phenomena from multidisciplinary angles and applies scientific analysis in his examination into his scrutiny of the mysterious. He is currently exploring the possible connections to infrasound and pheromones to accounts given by experiencers. From a psychological approach, Ron applies Jungian philosophical ideas into his research as he attempts to uncover the underlying archetype behind the enigmas of the world. He has traveled from Florida to Maine in the United States and throughout Great Britain in his continuos quest to uncover that which remains hidden. He has written extensively on the motifs of the wild man, mermaids, werewolves, ghosts, and vampires. Ron also has a keen interest in the theoretical shadow realm of the faerie, that goblin universe which seems to be the impetus from which the paranormal emerges, viewing the figure of the fairie as forms on which archetypes are fashioned. Ron is looking forward to taking this journey into the unknown with you."

Colin Schneider

"Colin is one of the youngest active researchers in the United States. He has been involved in cryptozoology and ufology since he was 13. Colin first got interested in the pursuit of the unknown after he visited the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine. A frequent attendee of conferences about the unexplained, Colin has given lectures at numerous events. He has been published in magazines such as Cryptid Culture Magazine and Animals & Men. Colin also is the Ohio representative for the Centre for Fortean Zoology and runs the blog the Crypto-Kid."

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.
