Australian Yowie Research Expedition Files – Operation Stickland Track
Yowiehunters Witness Audio Reports
Apr 16, 2021
This Expedition Research Video contains real Yowie footage shot last week, in the Gold Coast Hinterland. This is a 2 day journey, which found us at our desired location. The effort resulted in reward. We don’t normally post Expedition Files on our Witness Audio Youtube media, however we feel it is important for everyone to see.
If you were not aware of our other Youtube Channel, the link is here – www.youtube.com/channel/UCReY…
Thank you to Buck Buckingham, for a tremendous effort obtaining this footage, on the night.
This, folks, is GOLDEN. Seriously.
I found it via my hangout, ATS, in this thread:
Infra Red Footage Of Yowie (Aussie Bigfoot) – Very Compelling!

I’m somewhat new to the topic of Yowies (what we call the Sasquatch or Bigfoot in Australia) having only recently in the past few months started looking in to reports, sightings, videos, audio reports from witnesses etc.
From what I have read, seen and heard I believe there is an indisputable case to be made that there is something out there in the Australian bush that can be described as a bi-pedal hominid that is undocumented in an official capacity however, is well known about in many circles.
In my region of Australia, the indigenous peoples refer to them as doolagah’s and the term is used quite extensively by many nations up and down the Australian east coast. My indigenous mates talk about them as fact and conject that there are actually two types – the big ones and the small ones. Some nations believe the small ones are their spiritual guides but I digress.
In the following video, produced by Australian Yowie Research the crew captured what appears to be two yowies behind a tree and one bending down to….do something on the ground on infra red camera at night time. The footage is quite compelling and probably the best I have seen from anywhere in the world. This from the northern Australian state of Queensland in the hinterland of the Gold Coast region – a purported hotspot for Yowie activity, encounters and sightings.
If you wish to watch the full video, I do recommend it as it is quite enjoyable and can be seen here;
If you would like to skip to the part where the footage starts being shown and discussed then skip to 19:06.
I was trying to get a screen grab of the best still I could capture however, you really need to watch the video to see the movement and shape of this creature properly so to avoid doing this incredible footage an injustice I will just encourage you to watch the footage.
Pretty sure I am not allowed to link to the Australian Yowie Research website however, strongly recommend that anybody interested in the topic finds it. The site includes an interactive map of all reported sightings, encounters, videos, newspaper articles etc. since European settlement in Australia.
Their YT channel is also fantastic with animated, audio witness reports coming out regularly.
I think this is either the biggest hoax bestowed upon the community or the most compelling footage yet and, due to the amount of work and sheer hours invested by the AYR team believe it to be the latter.
What do you reckon ATS?
Oh, these guys are the real deal. I know this to be true. Been a follower for years.
Darn Youtube switched my notifications off, eh. They do that a lot.
The motion of the active creature is so natural and it is rather clear… as well as the shape… The one that stands guard, as it were, is strong in its own right. If you don’t have a half hour, do skip to 19:00. But, really watch this full screen.
The first 19 minutes is chock full of interesting finds; the sticks are cool and I don’t recall seeing that before. I do hope you watch the whole thing. It’s neat!
This is just excellent. I eagerly await more in the future.

May 2, 2021
In this upload, we are reexamining the Yowie Footage taken on our last Expedition. Along with the footage, there are also new unseen images and one in particular towards the end, that leaves absolutely no doubt.
Porax-38 starfighters were a type of starship developed for the Utapau Skyforce. Sturdy models, the Porax-38 line came equipped with hyperdrive and excellent scanners, making their range much greater than comprable fighter craft. The Seperatist Rogue-class starfighter was a modified design of the Porax-38.

Banned Documentary – Why Bill Gates Switched From Microsoft To Vaccines
February 22, 2021
Why Bill Gates switched from Microsoft to Vaccines is a hard hitting documentary on the untold history of the tech mogul.
The documentary starts with a long suppressed 90s case of Bill Gates bribing to sabotage his rivals and to impose his policy on sovereign nations.
The 90s case is a pivotal moment from where Gates switches to philanthropy with a damage-control makeover with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The documentary also shows Bill Gates agenda in India and how his Polio vaccines resulted in thousands of deaths of tribal girls in India.
It also details various global projects undertaken by Bill Gates which will have a bigger impact in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis.
One of the project is Trust Stamp – a vaccination based digital identity program funded by Bill Gates and implemented by Mastercard and GAVI.
It will soon link your biometric digital identity to your vaccination records. The program said to “evolve as you evolve” is part of the Global War on Cash and has the potential dual use for the purposes of surveillance and “predictive policing” based on your vaccination history.
Those who may not wish to be vaccinated may be locked out of the system based on their trust score.
Another project that works in conjunction is aims to deliver an invisible quantum tattoo hidden in the coronavirus vaccine for storing your vaccination history.
The documentary also details how Bill Gates infiltrated Global Health with his money and his consultant friends exerting tremendous influence in the space of public health and international governance.
This infiltration is managed via British led GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) which has managed to infiltrate India’s healthcare policy-making thereby gaining a strategic position to dictate India’s response to coronavirus.
GAVI is largely led by the British government and Bill Gates. While the UK is GAVI’s largest funder, its implementation follows what is known as the” Gates approach”. Known as the Vaccine Cartel or Pharma Cartel by critics, its vaccines have been accused of causing atleast 38 million premature deaths worldwide.
According to one such study published in a respected journal by the world’s most authoritative vaccine scientists, Bill Gates DTP vaccine killed 10 times more African girls than the disease itself.
The vaccine apparently compromised their immune systems. Although, such study was never performed before 2017, Bill Gates and the Vaccine Alliance GAVI and WHO pushed the vaccines on unsuspecting African babies.
The documentary than focuses from the actual impact of Bill Gates funded vaccines to the actual agenda behind it.
As we understand it, the documentary is part of the Plandemic Series and longer version of the same exist which is being suppressed by mainstream media.
And there you have it, folks.

An old tale of horror was posted at r/MorbidReality
undercover footage from north korea shows a homeless, starving young woman; she was found dead two months after this interview in a corn field, probably trying to find a corn to eat.
North Korea : Starving 23 year-old Homeless Woman (Rimjin-gang/ASIAPRESS)
Dec 3, 2010
23 year-old Homeless Woman Found Dead (2011/Feb/05)
ISHIMARU Jiro (Chief Editor)
A 23 year-old woman Rimjin-gang reporter Kim Dong-cheol previously interviewed was recently found dead in a field. Kim was conducting undercover reporting in South Pyongan Province in June 2010 when he met an emaciated, soot-blackened woman in the suburb of the city. With a weak voice, she told Kim she had recently lost her parents, her home, and had since been living in the streets. Kim couldn’t catch her name because of her weak voice.
At the time she was gathering grass to feed rabbits. In that region of the country, many households are obliged to feed rabbits at home and local schools gather them. It is said that these rabbits are used to supply food to the military or fur procurement. She was selling what she gathered in the market to make what little money she could.
This video interview was smuggled out of the country and distributed by ASIAPRESS. It had a large impact on the global community after footage was broadcast on major stations such as ASAHI TV (Japan), KBS TV (South Korea), ARD (Germany) and BBC (UK). In particular, after a feature report on South Korean KBS was aired on October 3, hundreds of comments were posted on the program’s website expressing deep feeling of sympathy for her.
Kim informed us she was found dead around October 20, 2010, only a few months after meeting her:
” Without a home, she had survived by begging in the market and along the road. But one day she was discovered dead in a corn field. It was the corn harvesting season at the time, so she was probably trying to find raw corn to eat. A neighborhood reported that there was a woman’s body lying in the field and rumors spread around the area. It was later confirmed that it was the body of the 23 year-old homeless woman. It seems many days had already lapsed since her death, as the body had begun to decompose. But local police still left it there for a long time.”
Currency reform, the 2009 redenomination of the won, has caused massive economic turmoil in North Korean society, leading to increases in homelessness and starvation in several regions. For families like that of this woman, the policy destroyed their livelihoods. They had no choice but to sell their homes and wander the streets. She is one of the victims of this reckless redenomination policy.

Heartbreaking horror. And though this is ten years old, not a God damn thing has changed over there, with the possible exception of the closing of one (or two?) of the worst camps. 12? 14? God, I forget. And, Godspeed 22!
Don’t worry, though, they’ve still got plenty of camps. Many are mines. Factories, as well, making low-end things destined to be labeled “Made In China” — and sold here.
I was deeply into digging out info on North Korea back when it started it’s media blitz a few years ago. I learned so much and was simultaneousl sickened, incredulous and awestruck. I still follow it — and if you are interested I highly recommend the DailyNK, a news service out of Seoul staffed and run by a good-size cadre of reporters who are all escapees from the North. They have myriad contacts in the North and their site is updated every day. It’s the real NK news, right from the horse’s mouth, not the ridiculous MSM hooey.

Paranormal Musings: The Philip Experiment
Katie of the Night
Feb 20, 2019
Me talking about paranormal crap for 16 minutes straight. This MAY be interesting to you if you think paranormal, parapsychology, seances, spiritualism, psychokinesis, poltergeists, ghosts, spirits, demons, or any other crazy stuff is cool.
The Philip Experiment was a parapsych experiment in which a group created a pretend ghost and then contacted him via seance. It worked, so what does this mean?? This video is a little overview about the experiment and what I get out of it. I’d love to have a discussion so lmk your thoughts! I decided to film this video without seeking out any other youtuber vids about this experiment, so hopefully mine measures up with only internet research under my belt!

I just learned of this today and it is certainly thought provoking. And wonderfully Fortean. Ive always been fascinated by the very concept of tulpas, let alone their existence.
To think that our minds have the ability to create, out of the energy of our thoughts, actual physical manifestations that appear in our reality, is just awesome and wondrous.
What could the mechanism be that allows that to occur? I have seen monks do some amazing things, but not really tulpa creation, per se, unless the things they do can be called tulpas, as well.
As the girl in the 3rd video notes, the majority of seances are really just entertainment, to be polite, but, are ‘real’ seances tulpas, too, created by the minds of those present and not, in fact, entities from a nearby dimension?
I would love to hear your thoughts on that important enigma.

Forever Classic Cars
December 16 at 12:32 PM
Once in a while, we have to post a foreign-made automobile.
This one-of-a-kind was owned by actress Diana Dors.
Diana Dors purchased this 1949 Delahaye Type 175 Roadster very early in her acting career when she was just 17 years old! She paid $13,904.00 for the roadster (equivalent to $150,755.00 today) before she’d even passed her driving test! The car was sold at auction in 2011 for $3,090,620.00 (equivalent to $3,575,498.00 today). Diana Dors made a lot of money early on because she was considered to be Britain’s answer to Marilyn Monroe despite the fact that she looked more like Jayne Mansfield… either way… she was a blonde bombshell!
Lovely all around!

Incredibly Rare Footage of Deep-Sea Fish Devouring a Whole Shark
Scientists Capture Incredibly Rare Footage of Deep-Sea Fish Devouring a Whole Shark
Feasts are rare on the barren landscape of the ocean depths. So researchers couldn’t believe their luck when they stumbled on a feeding frenzy of deep-sea sharks chowing down on a fallen swordfish off the US coast in July 2019. But they never imagined they would also capture footage of one of those sharks becoming the prey for another deep-sea creature. With their rover hovering nearby, a late arrival took advantage of the submersible’s shadow. Nobody might blame a wary fish for holding back while ravenous sharks feed, but this heavyweight had plans to turn one of the diners into its dinner. A video posted by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows the aftermath of the ambush by a hungry Wreckfish. You can watch it for yourself in the clip below, with shark lunch being served at around 1:42.
While scouting for the wreck of the oil tanker SS Bloody Marsh, NOAA’s remotely operated vehicle Deep Discoverer chanced upon the remains of a 2.5 metre (8 ft) long swordfish being chewed on by nearly a dozen deep-sea sharks.
The sharks were two species of slow-moving, deep-sea dogfish commonly referred to as sleeper sharks. Two of the larger individuals were likely to be roughskin dogfish (Centroscymnus owstonii). Others belonged to a relatively newly discovered animal: Genie’s dogfish (Squalus clarkae), named in honour of Mote Marine Laboratory founder Eugenie ‘Shark Lady’ Clark in 2018.
The deep sea scares the beejayzus outta me.

HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU — THE END OF AN ERA
The young guns may not understand the meaning of this, but you will. The Roy Rogers Museum in Branson, MO has closed its doors forever. The contents of the museum were sold at a public auction. Roy Rogers told his son, if the museum ever operates at a loss, close it, and sell the contents. He complied. Note the follow-on article truly the end of an era.
Here is a partial listing of some of the items that were sold at auction:
Roy’s 1964 Bonneville (Pontiac) sold for $254,500. It was estimated to sell between 100 and 150 thousand dollars.
His script book from the January 14,1953 episode of This Is Your Life sold for $10,000 (EST. $800-$1,000).
A collection of signed baseballs (Pete Rose, Duke Snyder, and other greats) sold for $3,750.
A collection of signed bats (Yogi Berra, Enos Slaughter, Bob Feller, and others) sold for $2,750.
Trigger’s saddle and bridle sold for $386,500.
One of many of Roy’s shirts sold for $16,250 and one of his many cowboy hats sold for $17,500.
One set of boot spurs sold for $10,625. (He never used a set of spurs on Trigger)
His flight jacket sold for $7,500
His set of dinnerware plates and silverware sold for $11,875.
The Bible they used at the dinner table every night sold for $8,750.
One of several of his guitars sold for $27,500.
Nellybelle (the Jeep) sold for $116,500.
Bullet (stuffed) sold for $35,000 (EST. 10-15 K). He was their real pet.
Dale’s parade saddle, estimated to sell between 20-30 K, sold for $104,500.
One of many pairs of Roy’s boots sold for $21,250.
Trigger (stuffed) sold for $266,500.
Do you remember the 1938 movie The Adventures of Robinhood, With Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland? Well, Olivia rode Trigger in that movie. Trigger was bred on a farm co-owned by Bing Crosby. Roy bought Trigger on a time payment plan for $2,500. Roy and Trigger made 188 movies together. Trigger even outdid Bob Hope by winning an Oscar in the movie Son of Paleface in 1953.
It is extremely sad to see this era lost forever. Despite the fact that Gene and Roy’s movies, as well as those of other great characters, can be bought or rented for viewing, today’s kids would rather spend their time playing video games. Today it takes a very special pair of parents to raise their kids with the right values and morals. These were the great heroes of our childhood, and they did teach us right from wrong, and how to have and show respect for each other and the animals that share this earth.
You and I were born at the right time. We were able to grow up with these great people even if we never met them. In their own way they taught us patriotism and honor. We learned that lying and cheating were bad, and that sex wasn’t as important as love. We learned how to suffer through disappointment and failure and work through it. Our lives were drug free.
So it’s good-bye to Roy and Dale, Gene and Hoppy (Hop-a-long Cassidy), the Lone Ranger and Tonto. Farewell to Sky King (and Penny)and Superman and (Dragnet) Sgt Friday. Thanks to Capt. Kangaroo, Mr. Rogers, and Capt. Noah and all those people whose lives touched ours, and made them better.
Happy Trails… It was a great ride through childhood
P.S. Don’t send this to anyone under 50…. they won’t understand!
A childhood hero!
Disney animator Millicent Patrick never received the deserved credit for her role in designing the iconic Gill-man costume for Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
Typical. And that sucks.
Disney owes her A LOT!
But despite the great art produced by people like Millicent, they have always been a self-centered, ultra-litigious bunch of pricks. I remember once when I was doing sound and VTR operator on a shoot at an amusement park in Westchester, Rye, I think. The director and DP went off to do something or other, leaving me alone standing guard on the camera and tripod for a little while. Some young dork saunters over out of the blue and warns me not to shoot any Disney characters or face their legal wrath. I don’t think I saw any Disney characters. You know… just rude.

I like this one. If this is not a visual creation but a real thing in the sky, then, I am of the opinion that this is a life form, probably, but not necessarily, based on plasma. Notice the behavior, so much like two worms in some sort of reproductive or whatever behavior – and the fluidity of motion.
That’s my take on it, for whatever it’s worth.
In the early 20s and on into later times in the annals of plasma research, it was oft-noted how the behavior of the plasma in their research containers behaved, on it’s own, as if it were alive. That has stuck with me and I find it fits well with this, more ‘organic’ sort of sighting.
Oh, yes, I found this post on my reddit feed:

Snake-Like UFO Divides into 2, Ejects Sphere – Bizarre Sighting filmed over Trenton, New Jersey
Over the years there have been unique and somewhat disturbing sightings of what looks like tubular, flexible objects, best described as snake UFOs. Simply enter “Snake UFO” into google search, and click on the image tab to see the results.
When we first saw this footage, that is what we did, as it was mentioned by others on our team that this looked like older footage, but we didn’t find anything.
This sighting has an organic feel to it, the movements and appearance.
Some may say they are balloons however, there is nothing we can compare to in order to review that as a hypothesis.
What do you think? Do you have any interesting backstories to such ‘snake-like’ UFOs..??
This is exciting stuff to me. Ever since I heard of it in the 80s. It just rings true and fires up the imagination. I fully accept that some sightings of aerial oddness are indeed alive and living right here with us.
Here is some reportage from New Scientist in 2003 noting the spheres it forms exhibit every feature of the life checklist.
Physicists have created blobs of gaseous plasma that can grow, replicate and communicate – fulfilling most of the traditional requirements for biological cells. Without inherited material they cannot be described as alive, but the researchers believe these curious spheres may offer a radical new explanation for how life began.
Most biologists think living cells arose out of a complex and lengthy evolution of chemicals that took millions of years, beginning with simple molecules through amino acids, primitive proteins and finally forming an organised structure. But if Mircea Sanduloviciu and his colleagues at Cuza University in Romania are right, the theory may have to be completely revised. They say cell-like self-organisation can occur in a few microseconds.
The researchers studied environmental conditions similar to those that existed on the Earth before life began, when the planet was enveloped in electric storms that caused ionised gases called plasmas to form in the atmosphere.
They inserted two electrodes into a chamber containing a low-temperature plasma of argon – a gas in which some of the atoms have been split into electrons and charged ions. They applied a high voltage to the electrodes, producing an arc of energy that flew across the gap between them, like a miniature lightning strike.
Sanduloviciu says this electric spark caused a high concentration of ions and electrons to accumulate at the positively charged electrode, which spontaneously formed spheres (Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, vol 18, p 335). Each sphere had a boundary made up of two layers – an outer layer of negatively charged electrons and an inner layer of positively charged ions.
Trapped inside the boundary was an inner nucleus of gas atoms. The amount of energy in the initial spark governed their size and lifespan. Sanduloviciu grew spheres from a few micrometres up to three centimetres in diameter.
Split in two
A distinct boundary layer that confines and separates an object from its environment is one of the four main criteria generally used to define living cells. Sanduloviciu decided to find out if his cells met the other criteria: the ability to replicate, to communicate information, and to metabolise and grow.
He found that the spheres could replicate by splitting into two. Under the right conditions they also got bigger, taking up neutral argon atoms and splitting them into ions and electrons to replenish their boundary layers.
Finally, they could communicate information by emitting electromagnetic energy, making the atoms within other spheres vibrate at a particular frequency. The spheres are not the only self-organising systems to meet all of these requirements. But they are the first gaseous “cells”.
Sanduloviciu even thinks they could have been the first cells on Earth, arising within electric storms. “The emergence of such spheres seems likely to be a prerequisite for biochemical evolution,” he says.
That view is “stretching the realms of possibility,” says Gregoire Nicolis, a physical chemist at the University of Brussels. In particular, he doubts that biomolecules such as DNA could emerge at the temperatures at which the plasma balls exist.
However, Sanduloviciu insists that although the spheres require high temperature to form, they can survive at lower temperatures. “That would be the sort of environment in which normal biochemical interactions occur.”
But perhaps the most intriguing implications of Sanduloviciu’s work are for life on other planets. “The cell-like spheres we describe could be at the origin of other forms of life we have not yet considered,” he says. Which means our search for extraterrestrial life may need a drastic re-think. There could be life out there, but not as we know it.
Wonderful, dreamy stuff full of Fortean fun.

I caressed one of these treasures at Nikon House in Manhattan back in the day. It was EPIC, lemme tell ya.
Everyone at Aston Martin is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Sir Sean Connery.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
A real treasure has been lost. RIP Sir.
