I’ve known Doc online for ages from when he did an online video education type thing. It was a pleasure finding out he’s even more skilled as a blues keyboardist of some repute. This is his current gig—before Good Cookies he was with the Vincent Hayes Project. Hey here’s one of those for you : )

Holy Sh!t!

Wow.

Just… wow.

I am gob smacked.

I really need to go see this.

But if I go to Germany I’ll be arrested and locked up for life!

Maybe my denial of all those unverified reports has been in error.

Sieg!

Oh God… Ms. Fish… is… wonderful.

This one was posted to a non-musical post I made on fb by my dear friend Frank, I think to soothe my battered soul!

He got me all excited of course, Miss Fish has that effect on me : )

She is so very good, a true master of the blues at such a young age and so very scrumptious to boot, what more could anyone ask for in a Goddess?

Hmmm?

Enjoy

Bigfoot story by old man

Bigfoot story by old man Windell Brockway

And here is a transcript posted on April 19, ‘17 at Phantoms and Monsters which is where I found this true gem. Hey, this is exactly the sort of testimony that in my humble opinion you can take to the bank, to use an awful old cliché.

Texas Witness: ‘Yeah, I seen it’

In a 2015 Youtube video, Windell Brockway told of his Bigfoot encounter in 1958:

“My name is Windell Brockway. I’m talking about a thing that happened to me in 1958. I was about one mile outside Union Valley, Texas. And me and my brother-in-law was down at Joel Atherton’s hauling hay. We had a big truck to unload. We unloaded it and stacked it in the barn. Then we got ready to come home. We got in the car. It was an old car, an old Studebaker. We were driving down the road and there’s an old house on the left-hand side and an old corral. And we went back and as we were going back, I looked over to the left and I seen this big white thing standing up yelling and it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. And my brother-in-law who was driving, he looked over at me and he said, ‘Windell, did you see that?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I seen it.’ I said, ‘What was it?’ He said, ‘I don’t know what it was, but it was something.’ I said, ‘Well, turn around, let’s go back and look at it.’

So we went up about a half a mile and there was an old road and he pulled in there and we turned around and went back. I didn’t have nothing other than old drink bottle on the floor, so I picked it up. He said, ‘What are you gonna do with that?’ I said, ‘Man, that’s a big thing, I don’t know what it is.’ I said, ‘I think it’s some kind of monster or something.’ And we pulled back by there and that thing was still out there. And he’s shaking his hands up and down and he’s white; he had them long hairs on him, on his arms and body. My brother-in-law said, ‘Do you see that?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I see it!’ And we went on back down the road and we turned around in and went back and when we went back, it was gone. And we drove on past it, and went on into town.

I told my wife about it and my sister but they didn’t believe me. But I seen it. James Fred Taylor was my brother-in-law. If he was still alive, he’d tell the same story. That was back in 1958. I’m glad to be telling the story about it. That’s all of it.”

To me this is gold. I can detect nothing in this fella’s voice or manner that leads me to think he’s not just telling the interviewer what he saw. Simple as that.

Doug Skinner “Musical Curiosities”

Doug Skinner presents “A Cabinet of Musical Curiosities” at INFO’s 2002 FortFest. After playing a variety of obscure and archaic instruments, Doug entertained with this rather strange song on agriculture. For more information on INFO go to http://www.forteans.com

This man can make you laugh, friend, I assure you. He outdid himself every single time.

Great on the ukulele. Best friend of John Keel.

I used to pick him up in front of his apartment in the City and we would drive down to the INFO shenanigans in Baldymore and back. One time I messed up his sound really badly. That was awkward. He freaked out one late night because we all liked the Beatles and we awoke to him gone. Uncomfy. Still. And that was years ago… more than 10, for sure.

Oh, those were times.

I also want to relay my best regards to my late friend Dave Singer up in Heaven, a Fortean and a physicist and the first INFO member I ever met. (The uploader, check it) He knew everybody and took part in the investigation of the notorious Coso object and loved filming and above all, kayaking. Cheers, Dave.

Peace

 

Wow, here’s a cool blast from the past, one I didn’t even remember, glommed out of Lon Strickler’s Phantoms and Monsters newsletter.

I am lucky enough to have known Mr Keel, this through my involvement with the International Fortean Organization back in the day. He was a close mentor of the late head of that group (and the girl who tried to kill me, too!). I enjoyed conversations and dinner with the great man. I remember him telling me that he was no longer doing Forteana since the field was then just so out of whack. Soon after he fell into a long illness with his dear friend Doug Skinner looking in on him frequently. And then he was gone. He was always wanting to relay tips on diabetes to me but the group head never passed them on. Mr Keel was a sweetheart in addition to being a world traveler and investigator of strange things.

Stuart Whitman’s Alien Encounter

Famed journalist and ufologist John Keel related an account that involved celebrity actor Stuart Whitman:

A widespread power failure blacked out New York City and much of the northeastern United States late on the afternoon of November 10, 1965. By dawn of the following day, power still had not been restored. Movie and television actor Stuart Whitman, who was staying in a Manhattan hotel, heard a “sound like a whippoorwill whistling outside my twelfth story window.” When he stepped to the window, he was startled, so he told Hollywood reporter Vernon Scott two months later, to see two UFOs hovering nearby. According to his account;

“One of them was orange, and the other was blue. They gave off a strange luminescent light, so I couldn’t see if there were portholes or who was in them. Then I heard them speaking to me as if they were on a loudspeaker. They spoke to me in English. It may not have been audible to anyone else. They said they wanted to talk to me because I appeared to have no malice or hate. They said they were fearful of earth because Earthlings were messing around with unknown quantities and might disrupt the balance of the universe or their planet.

The people in the UFO said the blackout was just a little demonstration of their power and that they could do a lot more with almost no effort. It served as a warning. They said they could stop our whole planet from functioning. They asked me to do what I could to fight malice, prejudice, and hate on Earth, and then they took off. I couldn’t say how big the objects were, but when they took off I felt elated. I wasn’t even shocked. And I know I wasn’t asleep because I was standing by the window and wide awake the entire time. I don’t know why they picked me as a contact. But I’ll swear on a Bible that I saw them out there and that they talked to me.”

Whitman insisted that he had not been drinking. Scott, who thought the story was absurd, nonetheless acknowledged that Whitman seemed sincere. It was not, after all, the sort of tale likely to advance his career. He never spoke publicly of the incident again.

The Doors – Love Her Madly

Band: The Doors
Album: The Very Best of The Doors
Release date: 2001
Track number: 15
Genre: Psychedelic Rock
Lyrics:

Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya need her badly
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her madly
Wanna be her daddy
Don’t ya love her face
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
Like she did one thousand times before
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Yeah, don’t you love her
Don’t you love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
Yeah, all your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Well, don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly

Alrighty then, all I can say is that I am really feelin this song, especially that line in this song… that line, “wanna be her daddy,” because, well, yes,  omlgjhcita, yes I do.

Strong stuff… strong af.

There is mischief afoot.

That is Mr Peter Townshend, posing nicely in his home studio way back in the 60s. Look at that stuff!

This pic was kindly posted to Instagram by the fab folks at TapeOp magazine. TapeOp is awesome.

I suppose this might celebrate the start up of my latest attempt at a studio of some at least halfway-decent sort.

Got an impromptu drum track from my dear friend Lynn, who was definitely on the jazz cuz she was gigging the next night, all the way away in Olde Blighty! Which is not unusual at all because her recording studio, Bakehouse Studio and her Wobbly Music musical empire are just up the road. In fact, last night the second EP, Foodbank Robbery, from her latest band, The Johnnie Squizzercrow Experiment, was released via the Senior Sounds project. Get it here eh.

Here is a bit of it.

Focusrite! Yeah they’re the “old” ones but ask me if it’s anything but academic. Seriously, now. Especially in this timeline and in any event, these pieces are nice.

And I can use it with the Thunderbolt 3 laptop as well as the Firewire laptop. I like that a lot as the Thunderbolt interfaces are so very dear these days. It cost $60 to be able to plug it in though. And that with Focusrite providing their half of the connection gratis. This studio does set new standards for low budget, for the time being, and for quite a foreseeable time.

But beyond that hardware lust…

the music making…

that will be the candy.

Must save brain…

obecause Ig, like Eldrad before him…

Must Live!

Not quite like Paulo’s place, eh ? :

 

Ah, yes, you will be among the first to know what happens.

Mystery of the Sphinx

Imperial Sevens

The Mystery of the Sphinx, introduced American viewers to the discovery by John Anthony West and Robert Schoch that the Great Sphinx of Giza might be thousands of years older than its assumed date of 2500 BC. Narrated by Charlton Heston, the documentary provides evidence that the ancient Egyptians possessed scientific knowledge unknown to us and carried on the wisdom tradition of an earlier lost civilization.

This is what caused all the ruckus!

Love me some ruckus.

Enjoy.

WHY A TELETHON?

John Anthony West’s work has touched millions of people’s lives the world over, and fought against close-mindedness and ignorance, while promoting critical thinking on where our true history and our culture’s past could come from. Now it is our turn as a community to give back to someone who has given so much to us.

We are with you in this fight John, every step of the way.

THE GOAL

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for John’s treatment during the broadcast – and another $40,000 during the next 7 days as we release the audio edition of the podcast. Let’s make this a reality.

Excerpt from Clay Roup’s Fundly Campaign Page

https://fundly.com/john-anthony-west-project

John Anthony West, the Emmy award winning Egyptologist who took on the ‘Quackademics’ and conventional dating of The Sphinx is now taking on Cancer.

World renowned Egyptologist, writer and satirist John Anthony West has spent the majority of his life fighting academia with his controversial theories of ancient Egypt. In the first days of 2017 John was presented with a new fight, this time he is battling cancer instead of the “Quackademics” (one of many JAW’isms).

For those not familiar with John’s work, one can start with his 1993 Emmy award winning documentary, The Mysteries of the Sphinx, narrated by Charlton Heston. John first hypothesized and then proved geologically that the Sphinx is vastly older than the conventional date of 2500BC taught in schools. Simply put, he has changed the way we look at the history of our civilization.

John West was adamant about using alternative methods over the extremely harsh ‘standard of care’ treatment that would be tough on any person at any age.

The great news is that John has been accepted in the renowned Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, much like John, is a genius that the establishment does not know how to deal with. The FDA has continually harassed Dr Burzynski for using non standard of care methods, even though his treatment has shown more promise than traditional protocols. His patients testimonies have led to the FDA to consistently fail in their stubborn litigious pursuits.

Most non-traditional cancer treatments are disregarded from health insurance policies, giving most little choice in the matter. In addition to being radically cheaper, Dr Burzynski’s patient case studies have detailed incredible results. Be that as it may, the majority of health care institutions do not acknowledge. This of course requires people like John Anthony West to settle his medical care out of pocket.

We cant let that stop these two from trying.

The Rogue Oncologist meets the Rogue Egyptologist, soon with your help.

We estimate the medical obligations, financial commitments, and on-hold Egypt tours for 2017 to be $155,000. 100% of all funds will go to John West and his family. We also welcome your ideas and suggestions to help out this living treasure to continue his pursuits.

###
Peace to you all.

The Emmy award winning Egyptologist who took on the ‘Quackademics’ and conventional dating of The Sphinx is now taking on Cancer.

Dec ‘16- A month later, JAW’s getting dizzy spells during his Enneagram Trip to Egypt. He goes to Albany Medical for checkup and tests upon returning.

Jan ‘16- Two weeks ago the Albany Medical CAT and MRI results back. As John puts it, “I got a bad read.” John has cancer.

Current- This weekend his son Zeke put out word to his upcoming group that is slated for Feb 15th, which is not likely. Obviously any indications of this sort are not to be taken lightly. The promising news is that Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski in Houston has looked at John medical results and has agreed to take him in. No surprise that insurance won’t accept alternative cancer treament centers, so we are starting a fundraiser for him. Graham Hancock is also involved, and he is going to help get the word out to guys like Rogan and others in the community.

All ideas and comments on how to help John are welcome. You will see a few ideas posted on the Fundly site, and please send those in. As for communications, Zeke is helping out with emails and I’m also including him here. You can always give me a shout as well

We stopped to admire this great view on a Fortean INFO jaunt in Honduras. Please help if you can. He is such a good man. Thanks.

He didn’t tell me.

This is not good.

I just updated the site…

Hey, it’s the 27th and our dear friends in Oz are already well into helping 🙂

JC Johnson Talks Cryptids

dmJC has the whole two hours with George Knapp on Coast 2 Coast and the show is chock full of all sorts of topics.

I recommend it if you are curious about what happens out there beyond the realm of what might be called normal.

So many different things happen out there.

A lot of them are really frightening and certainly able to put you in another place entirely.

Sasquatch, dogmen, little people, lizard people, skinwalker stories and indeed more… including my three favorite creatures with a lot of info that ties in or is also odd like the frightening, creepy BEK.

 Like I implied, non-stop goodness.

Enjoy.

Into the Dogman’s Lair! (Dogman Encounters Episode 124)

Jane is my pal, I’m glad to say and she is a really good egg.

She is pretty gol darn brave to go out there, too, man. No, really, you never know.

This stuff, in person, can freak you out.

There it is before you, looking at you. You cannot move.

You are fully aware that it could tear you limb from limb with no effort.

This is something called primal fear. There is nothing more powerful.

It’s a switch in your genes, dude.

The Leaf-Stick Man fascinates me.

Whoa.

Enjoy.

“That’s Duane Allman’s guitar in her hands.”

 

WoW!

Frank sent me a notice, as he knows me well and we both are in awe of this woman.

Think of the power of the historical energy flowing through her soul as she plays that thing. Must be so cool.

Rest assured she will do that Gibson proud… no worries there!

Thank you Frank, you fab person, you!

This is so sweet. It just gives evidence to the universality of the energy we call love. Best energy there is.
