Sculpture of a chicken-headed man. China, Tang dynasty, 7th-10th century [3300×4640]

12 hours ago

This sculpture was found in a tomb at Gaochang, a Tang city on the edge of the Taklamakan Desert, where Chinese settlers mingled with Persian, Turkic, and other Central Asian peoples.

It portrays the buried man, who was born in the Year of the Chicken, and is thus depicted with a chicken’s head.

Museum. Painted clay, 80cm high.

Nifty keen. I’m putting it in cryptozoology despite the no doubt true explanation above, though, just because. Ha! There are cynocephalitic creatures, so why not aviacephs, too, eh?

Bigfoot Footage from Vancouver

Bob Gymlan
Nov 1, 2020

This video is about some bigfoot footage taken on Vancouver Island in 2013, but only released recently. My breakdown (like most things I do) is a little different than most breakdowns out there. I try to examine the aspects, big and small, of the footage in general. To me, this film is less than conclusive, but it is still certainly interesting.

Feel free to let me know what you think, and original links below. Thank you Gulf IslandRock!

Extraordinary Bigfoot Footage

Bob Gymlan
May 28, 2018

I give my take on three clips. 1. Junk Man 2. Creek Crosser 3. Hunter Chases Bigfoot

Links below respectively, and a huge thank you to MK Davis and his channel Greenwave2010fb

The first one is definitely extraordinary. The second one is most excellent! I think the third one is, too, but truth be told, my eyes have gotten pretty bad and I am having difficulty seeing much of the action in the third one, sadly. Your mileage may vary.

MonsterQuest: HORRIFYING 50-FOOT LAKE DEMON (S3, E9) | Full Episode | History

HISTORY
Oct 28, 2020

A fifty-foot monster is said to lurk beneath the isolated waters of North America. The stories from Lake Okanagan date back to the earliest First Nation peoples, who lived in fear of this terrifying creature, in Season 3, Episode 9, “Lake Demons.”

Subscribe for more from MonsterQuest and other great HISTORY shows: histv.co/SubscribeHistoryYT Check out exclusive HISTORY content: History Newsletter – histv.co/newsletter Website – histv.co/History Facebook – histv.co/Facebook Twitter – histv.co/Twitter

“MonsterQuest” takes a scientific look at reported sightings of cryptozoological creatures (cryptids) and paranormal entities around the world, including the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and werewolves.

Fifty feet is a world class length for a lake monster. Or any monster, really.

This is a very thorough investigation and well worth the watch.

Kaspar Hauser, Flowers

Kaspar Hauser, Flowers

On May 26, 1828, Hauser was brought before the authorities in Nürnberg, apparently bewildered and incoherent. With him he had a letter purporting to have been written by a laborer, into whose custody, it stated, the boy had been delivered on October 7, 1812, with the proviso that he should be instructed in reading, writing, and the Christian religion but kept in close confinement. Enclosed with this letter was one purporting to have been written by the boy’s mother, giving his name and his date of birth and stating that his father was a deceased cavalry officer. At first detained as a vagrant, the boy was later taken under the care of the educationist Georg Daumer. Next, the 4th earl of Stanhope took the boy under his protection (1832) and sent him to Ansbach, where he became a clerk in the office of the president of the court of appeal, Anselm von Feuerbach. The youth died from a wound that was either self-inflicted or, as he claimed, dealt by a stranger.

It was early alleged that he was the hereditary prince of Baden (afterward proved false), and other fanciful stories became associated with his origins. The case inspired many creative works, including Paul Verlaine’s poem in Sagesse (1881); the novels by Jacob Wassermann (1908), Sophie Hoechstetter (1925), and Otto Flake (1950); the play by Erich Ebermayer (1928); and the film directed by Werner Herzog (1974).

Gosh!

Myakka Skunk Ape Photos

The narrative may be unusual. But the details hold highly interesting characteristics.

Well, I can easily see what he’s talking about and I will agree that it is pretty compelling in support of the photo of a critter camp.

Knowledge of the typical primate behaviors in question here is not what one would call common, after all, in the general population. The photos show what is expected of a primate, and well, that is some solid corroboration.

www.bmwblog.com › Models › Concepts

The BMW 507. What hasn’t been said about it already? It’s probably one of the most beautiful cars ever made. At the same time, it was so revolutionary back in the day that it nearly bankrupt BMW. It was a bet against all odds and even though it was meant to be a proper rival for the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, its high price tag made it a flop back in the day. A flop that would lead to less than 250 cars being made, turning them all, over time, into proper collector’s items.

Spectacular!

Giant Manta Ray – The Largest Rays In The World

Ultimate Mysterious
Nov 15, 2020

The giant oceanic manta ray, also known as giant manta ray, is the largest type of ray in the world. They can reach a considerable size, with an average width of 4-5 meters and sometimes up to 7 meters. They can weigh up to 3,000 kilograms. It is dorsoventrally flattened and has large, triangular pectoral fins on either side of the disc. In front of the mouth, they have a pair of cephalic lobes which help direct more water and food into their mouths.

The coloring of the dorsal surface is black, dark brown, or steely blue, sometimes with a few pale spots and usually with a pale edge. They can be distinguished from other rays by their coloration. Each manta ray has its own unique color pattern variation that they can be identified by.

The giant manta rays mainly feed on plankton and are harmless to humans. In their gills they have structures called gill rakers that help to filter the plankton from the water. They are distributed in tropical, subtropical and temperate waters all over the world. There are reports of giant mantas living to at least 40 years, but little is known about their growth and development. The most significant threat to giant manta rays is commercial fishing, both being targeted and caught as bycatch.

Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell

Bob Dylan & Joni Mitchell, Austin, Texas, January 28, 1976 © Watt Casey.

bobdylan-n-jonimitchell

“Dylan showed up at the Austin concert, and he was acting really weird. He showed up onstage like a crazy person. He wandered around through the amps. He made it very apparent to the audience that he was there, but he never came forward. He just got on the stage and wandered around. We didn’t sing anything together.”—Joni Mitchell, “Reckless Daughter” David Yaffe, 2017.

“In response to minutes of clapping and stomping, Joni Mitchell at last returned to the stage, bringing a friend with her: Bob Dylan. Dylan was finally cajoled into doing a duet with Mitchell, but he only tapped his foot and played guitar while she sang “Both Sides Now” alone. Next, “Girl from the North Country,” with Dylan still maintaining silence. When, more than half-way through the song, he finally opened his mouth, anticipation was running so high that even a croak would have been greeted with cheers. He was, in fact, so hoarse (presumably from his concert in Houston on Sunday) that he could do little more than croak his way through the verse.”—Lisa Tuttle, Austin American-Statesman, January 30, 1976.

Patti Smith, 1976, by Lynn Goldsmith.

“I don’t consider writing a quiet, closet act: I consider it a real physical act. When I’m home writing on a typewriter, I go crazy. I move like a monkey. I’ve wet myself. I’ve come in my pants writing….Instead of shooting smack, I masturbate – fourteen times in a row…I start seeing Aztec mountains…I see weird things. I see temples, underground temples, with the doors opening, sliding door after sliding door, Pharaoh revealed – this bound-up Pharaoh with ropes of gold. That’s how I write a lot of my poetry.”

~ Patti Smith in 1971, from Patti Smith: An Unauthorized Biography, by Victor Bockris and Roberta Bayley

Relaxing Diarrhea Sounds, Ten Hour Edition!

The Diarrhea God
Jun 22, 2019

First, some not-so-good news: my phone is currently broke as hell, so I may not be able to record any audio, or upload any videos until I can find a workaround. You asked for it, so here it is! Ten straight hours of non-stop diarrhea and explosive, wet toilet farts to help you relax and get to sleep. Pop this video on before you go to sleep and you’ll be dreaming of chocolate waterfalls, and toilet emergencies all night. You might even crap yourself while you sleep! This video contains the original “Relaxing Diarrhea Sounds” video, as well as many added audio clips from past videos, and some new sounds that I didn’t think were good enough to make it into a video, but because they’re soft, quiet, relaxing poop splats, I figured they’d work perfect in this video. I worked pretty damn hard and spent most of my evening last night working on this, so hopefully y’all enjoy this, and you’d better watch the whole thing! I dare anyone to actually listen to the full 10 hours. Maybe there’s a secret message hidden in the video and the only way to find it is to watch the whole thing entirely. Or maybe there’s nothing but glorious explosive ass in this video. One way to find out =) You will NOT find better than this anywhere you look, so this has to get a perfect rating of infinity/10

Fascinating.

Good shit.
