Now ya’ll know how much I love a Bigfoot cake. Now there’s a brilliant new twist on the genre: the Yeti Bundt cake! You slice a seemingly boring cake open to reveal the secret Sasquatch within. Now let’s be clear – it’s no Biggie and Nessie cake. But it’s pretty damn cool.
Bigfoot-flavored — it tastes like blueberries and blurry camera work.
*Thanks to FOB Jennifer Malone for sending this one in. You rock, Jen!
Naturalists names a newly discovered species of catfish the Peckoltia greedoi, in honor of Greedo, the Rodian bounty hunter who was
killed by shot in self-defense by Han Solo in the original 1977 Star Wars movie. You can see the resemblance below:
Note the identical glassy eyes and itchy trigger finger.

My birthday is in November so…. only 270+ shopping days left to snap this fantastic Loch Ness Soup Ladle up for me. #JustSayin’ #NessieNoodle #SeaSerpentSplitPea
Fox Television Group has just announced a possible re-boot of “The X-Files” series, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson coming back to portray Mulder and Scully. Must. Not. Explode. With. Joy.
On this day in 1943, genius inventor Nikola Tesla died alone and penniless in a New York City hotel room. Immediately after his death, all of his scientific papers vanished. These papers contained information about a “Death Ray” that was designed for military purposes. Tesla, who had been working this invention for years, claimed it was capable of destroying 10,000 enemy airplanes at a distance of 250 miles. It has long been rumored that the infamous Tunguska blast of 1908 – which leveled several miles of forest in Siberia – was caused by an accidental transmission of Tesla’s Death Ray.
A new cryptozoology documentary airs this Friday, Oct. 24, on the Destination America cable network. Set in Texas and Louisiana, the show follows the hunters/trackers of the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO) as they scour the woods for a Yeti to shoot. That sounds heartless, but their premise is that they are basically paranormal exterminators who are only out to kill “nuisance” Sasquatches.
The Poor Man’s Paranormal is a guide featuring instructions on how to turn common household items into handy-dandy ghost-busting equipment. Written for the “paranormal MacGyver”, this manual claims to be able to show you how to:
- Use a flashlight to communicate with the dead,
- Create a “ghost trap” using a jar and aluminum foil,
- Use a necklace to tap into your psychic abilities, and
- Communicate with the Beyond using only toilet paper, flour, balloons, and a wristwatch.
I honestly want to buy this just to see how the balloons come into play.
The 2014 New Mexico UFO Conference will be held in Rio Rancho, NM next month. Not only does it feature some pretty awesome UFO-book authors as speakers, the evening will end with an after-dark field trip to a “secret” air base near Albuquerque to witness mysterious test flights. Not sure how secret the Manzano-Sandia testing facility can be if I know about it, but I still want to go. 🙂
New Mexico: Come for the Hatch chilies, stay for the UFO lectures.
I was in my backyard last Thursday night (08/28/14) wrangling dogs, when I saw the proverbial “lights in the sky.” At first, I thought it was the moon until I realized that the moon was shining in the sky behind me. I was standing there in the dark, completely transfixed by this thin crescent of light glowing against the night sky. Suddenly, it shrank down into a single orb of intense light and… vanished.
I stood there for a full minute afterward, completely unnerved and wondering if I had just had my first UFO sighting. I was half stoked and half freaked out.
Tragically – for me, at least – there is evidence that what I witnessed was most likely the perihelion of a rare comet called Comet 289/Blanpain. Which is pretty disappointing. If you’re going to witness a mysterious comet, you’re really hoping it will be named something more dramatic, like Frankenstein Thunderhammer or Blaze Destiny’Boom. *Sigh*
Professor Frink: “That comet is headed straight for us, with the fire and the impact and the 100% chance of pain… pain in the glavin!”
Note: Blaze Destiny’Boom is officially now my stripper name.
