The Black Diary

Coming in June is a new book by Nick Redfern called The Black Diary: M.I.B., Women in Black, Black-Eyed Children, and Dangerous Books.

'His skin was strange' 'She had total black eyes' 'You could almost taste the menace' 'The impulse to burn the book is mighty interesting' Nick Redfern reveals the very latest information on the sinister Men in Black, the chilling Women in Black, and the creepy Black-Eyed Children. Highlights include: dozens of never-before-seen stories of encounters with these creatures; Nick's own sighting of an MIB; the ability of these multi-dimensional entities to invade our space in hostile fashion; and how and why writing, reading and even thinking about them can be hazardous.
The Black Diary will be available on June 5th.

The Wrap reports:

Animal Planet's 'Monster Week' 2018 will kick off with the 100th and final episode of 'Finding Bigfoot,' TheWrap has learned exclusively. Not a bad way to get things going, or to finally bid adieu to a fan-favorite TV series. The week-long celebration will be hosted by Rhys Darby ('Flight of the Concords'), Dan Schreiber and Buttons of podcast 'The Cryptid Factor,' and it also includes new episodes of 'River Monsters,' 'Expedition Unknown,' 'Deadliest Place on Earth' and 'World's Scariest Animal Attacks,' along with a slew of specials, we're told. We've got the trailer for the annual event posted above and more details below - the news and footage is all ours, not that we're trying to be monsters about it. 'Monster Week' premieres Sunday, May 27 -…

Crypto-Kid Off the Air for now

I was apparently the last guest on Colin Schneider's Crypto-Kid podcast, at least for now. After the show last week, WCJV Radio, the station Colin did his show from, shut down. What that means is the show is off the air until Colin can find another station or work something else out.

If you can think of any stations that may be interested, let him know here.

I will put up another post if there are any updates on the show.

Claims of a Nessie Cover-Up on Google Maps

Google Maps has been a favorite of conspiracy theorists, UFO hunters, and cryptid hunters for a long time. Many people have also tried to use it to find a Loch Ness Monster. Now, there are apparently more claims of Nessie on Maps going around, and this time, people think Google is trying to cover it up!

According toSputnik International:

Sightings of what is affectionately referred to as 'Nessie' climbed to a record-breakking number of 11 last year, with many partaking in contests for the best visual proof of its existence. According to The Daily Star, Google Maps has been blamed for blurring the spots where the elusive Loch Ness monster allegedly popped up.  The popular navigation app and service has been used by conspiracy theorists to prove that many phenomena, including those connected with Nessie sightings, really exist. At some point, conspirators believed they 'had struck gold' while searching the mountainous Scottish land, The Daily Star wrote. Legends around L…

"Wild Men" = Bigfoot? Comparing Old and New Reports

Many researchers think that old newspaper accounts of "wild men," "wild women," "gorillas," and "anthropoids" throughout the United States could be historical accounts of Sasquatch. But do these accounts really have anything in common? I examined many old wild man accounts from Ohio, and there are a few comparisons that can be made.

Appearance
Besides being mysterious and hairy, many old accounts do not have much in common, appearance wise, with modern reports of Bigfoot. Most of the time, the only description is just "ape," "wild man," or "gorilla." However, in several accounts [in Ohio], the appearance of the creature is somewhat similar to today's Bigfoot.
The June 7, 1930 report of the Norwalk "ape" from the Coshocton Tribune adds the detail that witness John Landoll saw the shape of "what appeared to be a man" as it lumbered away "in anthropoid fashion" into the night. Today…
