Owner of the Mothman Diner Dies

Saw this on Loren Coleman's CryptoZooNews yesterday…
Carolin Harris
Carolin Harris, owner of Harris' Steakhouse (A.K.A. The Mothman Diner) in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, passed away yesterday morning. In addition to owning the diner, Harris was co-director of the Mothman Festival.

This was posted on the Mothman Festival Facebook page:

"It is with great Sadness that we even have to say this, but late last night we lost a wonderful person, the sweet and lovable Carolin Harris, of Harris Steak House (or as you might know it by - 'The Mothman Diner'). She was also the co-director of the Mothman Festival and has given us so much support over the years. 
"She was like a mother to so many in our small town… always welcoming to all, with her kind and hospitable heart and a smile on her face. We're not sure that we'll ever be able to fill this void of not having her around. She will be greatly missed, that's for sure."

While I was in Point Pleasant earlier this year, I stopped and got a photo at Harris' diner, the "Mothman Diner."

RIP Carolin Harris.

SIDE NOTE

2016 has seen the deaths of many people in the cryptozoology world, and many others as well, including, today, Carrie Fisher, 60, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. This was a real shock to me today. Star Wars VIII (which Fisher is in) is done filming, but who knows what they will do now with future films. Fisher suffered a heart attack last week and was in critical condition. RIP Carrie.

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.
