The Flashlight Frog is a cryptid purported to live in Cameroon. Ranging from three to six inches long, these amphibians have a horn-like protrusion on the end of their nose that emits a red light. They use this to attract insects. They catch them with a yellow, spiked tongue that is coated in a deadly saliva.

The Flashlight Frog was first mentioned by legendary cryptozoologist Karl Shuker in his 1997 book From Flying Toads to Snakes with Wings.

Quick Cryptid Snippet: Flashlight Frog
In June of 1997, naturalist and cryptozoologist, Jonathan Downes was visiting an animal fair at Newton Abbot in Devon, England. While there, he came across a cage of exotic tree frogs from Cameroon, West Africa. The exotic frog seller noted that the frogs were able to make their nose glow in darkness in order to attract prey. The vendor was selling the frogs for $38 per frog. Unable to purchase a specimen, Downes took the information to local herpetological scientists (herpetology: branch of zoology that studies amphibians) where he was told that science recognizes no frog species that are able to (or known to) produce a bioluminescent light.

The Flashlight Frog is described as being around 2-inches long with green skin uniformly covering its body and large pale eyes set widely upon its head. It is noted as having a slightly raised bump or “horn” at the end of its nose that is slightly blue in color. This is the area that is able to light up or glow via bioluminescence (the production and emission of light by a living organism). At night, it lights up its nose to attract flying insects and once close enough, the frog strikes with a long pale yellow tongue.

I am proud to call both Karl and Jonathan my friends. They are both so kind and truly wonderful people. In my hiding from the world angst, however, I will admit that condition caused an unawareness of Jonathan’s discovery… and Karl’s reportage… forgive me, gentlemen, I know not what I do. I am so… nevermind. 🙁

This thing is cool. Bioluminessence in itself is cool… and one wonders in awe at how Mother Nature endows some with it and the requisite skills to use it for survival.

Mother knows best. And she cares not for our rules. Don’t forget it. It is something we can only hope to someday come to grips with.

I found myself on the Rense site after discovering that a YouTube video I’d referenced that was of Harry Cooper and Jim Marrs talking about the Antarctic mission in 1938 had been deleted without trace. Even though this video had been sitting unopened on my pc for maybe a week, I was surprised and I cannot remember what made me put it in a new tab in the first place. At any rate, it had been a Rense video so I went there to see what was up. Hadn’t been to Rense in ages and ages. He’s basically a good guy but oh so gullible. He posts great factual stuff like Harry right alongside absolute, utter horsepoops like remote viewers and exopolitics and that sad Clark McLelland fellow, who I kind of feel sorry for. I think he’s taken Harry in! Oh dear.

Anyway, the show, from mid-2016, was on a supposedly “found” film that had photos and clips from the expedition and was 8 minutes long. Jim Marrs, RIP, was not on the show, so I’m not at all sure how he made it into the title. But I suspect Rense got a hold of Harry as the top expert on the German endeavors in WWII.

They had the pictures that made up the film and proceeded tro discuss them at some length. Harry immediately noted the misspelling of Josef but they thought it was for foreign consumption. Harry’s German isn’t so good and he couldn’t read most of the text so they did the pics and clips and noted some anomalies like pics from Europe mixed in towards the end.

I went to the tube and got the video, part 2 below, and also found the guy had the 4 minute part 1 which is pretty un-special.

A tube commenter blasts it as fake due the countless misspellings which would have got the filmmaker shot, truth be told. Another commenter notes an internet site watermark on one of the pictures. The guys didn’t see it but neither did I.

Oh dear. So this is as fake as it gets but I thought I’d post it just for the nifty but sometimes blurry (on purpose?) historical imagery and Harry’s insights.

I hate to break this to everyone, but it’s fake. This video is riddled with spelling mistakes. NOONE would have ever made a “Dokumentar Film” (Documentary) with this amount of mistakes in it. As a native german speaker, I bet my balls on the fact that this is fake. I will list some of the mistakes with translation

Except for the pictures of the caverns all the pictures of the building were not base 211, there pictures from Germany and elsewhere in Europe, one is of the stadium for the Nuremberg rallies another of a Huge flak Tower in Berlin and others were of tunnels on the Siegfried line, whoever put this together is doing a disservice to those of us who want to know the truth about what the Germans built down in Antarctica.

TheRyujin

One inconsistency I noticed, “das flugboot” in 3:47 is not the same flugboot in 4:09 of the clip. And I’m pretty certain the building in the end are a mix of Albert Speer models and blueprints. Interestingly, the person “Günther Rittau” credited at the end of the first clip was a German camera man, I think he worked on the movie “Metropolis”.

It’s a funny old world.

The Grassman (also known as the Ohio Grassman or the Minerva Monster) is a large bipedal creature, similar in description to Bigfoot, that has been spotted in Ohio. The creatures get their name from their tendency to build shelters out of grass.

Sightings date back to the 1700s, but the most reliable reports occurred in Minerva, Ohio in 1978: the Clayton family encountered multiple creatures on their property, and attributed the death of their German Shepherd to a Grassman attack.

Possible handprints have been found, and a 16″ hair was analyzed by Ohio State University; however, the results were inconclusive.

No…. Srsly, this thing is no joke.

My dad and uncle were out fishing on a boat and they were warned by an old war vet my uncle was friends with not to go out there without a gun. They took one but just disregarded it as him being a crazy old man.

They fished for a few hours before they heard trees breaking. TREES, not twigs. One was so thick and tall it was humanly impossible for anyone to break it. Then they had rocks being thrown at their boat. My dad said one was so big they thought it would damage the boat.

They shined their lights, yelled at the person they thought was doing it, even threatened they were armed and they continued having rocks thrown at them. They ultimately decided to get out of there.

They went back the next day, found a huge bigfoot print that my uncle had casted. They sent it to Ohio state university and they said it had lines and prints on the soles and they honestly couldn’t debunk it as a hoax.

My dad and uncle have never went back since then. These are two conservative woodsmen that have spent their entire lives outdoors fishing or racoon hunting etc late at night and they have never experienced anything like that in their entire lives.

The folks I know from Ohio, )not including members of the Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Research group and related gatherings), have not heard of this critter. And one of those folks is interested in paranormal stuff right from childhood. It all depends on what you run into in your day to day life, I suppose.

I’ve not paid attention to this furry fella so I don’t know if encounters are falling off or rising or what, so, again, it will all depend on the local environment.

I hope someone gets a better picture than this one… I mean, really. Having said that, I have personally experienced fantastic things and I can attest to the near certainty that snapping a pic will not be high on your list of priorities at that moment. Assuming that it was unexpected… and dang if they’re not nearly all unexpected.

Still, it can happen the other way, too.

Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac – The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown)

One of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs, enjoy 🙂

Peter would vehemently disapprove of the video title of “Peter Green’s…” as he did ever since some record company suit came up with it. But, being as it will likely always stick, we shall move on.

One of my faves, too. This song came in as the move into more complex music was starting, it is meaningful … the green manalishi is money and this is about the evils of same.

Mr. Green is a good man… very philanthropic in his heart and he tried as best as he could. I wonder if he still does good stuff in his retirement?

A classic… dig it.

Oh, baby!

I’ve for the most part only seen these buildings on Google Earth and maybe ultra-fleeting glimpses on Sharkhunters and on the infobae drone shoot… if I’m remembering right… so this is just awesome and we have our own Harry Cooper to thank for it.

Oh, how I want to accompany him someday. Gawd I’d be thrilled.

Not sure why the piece is broken up the way it is, but it doesn’t really matter, does it?

Look at how extensive this is! And this is only the farm!

I’ll post more stuff later and await even more as new clips get posted. Theres a big building behind the main house. Havent seen that yet. Soon I hope. maybe that was for the staff? A lot of people worked here in support of the happy couple.

This is a photograph of Voirrey Irving and her dog Mona, the woman who was well known for talking to Gef the Mongoose. Voirrey was 12 when Gef began speaking in her farmhouse on Isle of Man in September of 1931. Many people believe that Voirrey was behind the whole thing, and she was using ventriloquism to make it seem like there was an unseen talking Mongoose on the property.

I first heard of Gef many moons ago when my friend Susan Swiatek gave a lecture about the mysteriously vcal critter to our mutual group at an International Fortean Organization conference. Sue’s a MUFON exec and cryptozoology is a hobby of hers. I thought it was a pretty cool tale but didn’t really think it was truly true… but, hey, you never know, you know? We do know that there are shapeshifters, so… yeah.

Gef the Talking Mongoose is a mongoose-like creature found on Isle of Man. Gef is described as a small mongoose-like creature with yellow fur, a bushy tail, and stripes. Sounds like a normal mongoose right?

Well yeah except for the fact that Gef could talk. Gef was first reported in the village of Dalby by the Irving family. Gef introduced himself as Gef the Mongoose who was born in New Delhi India in 1852. Gef told the Irvings that he was a clever mongoose and a ghost or a spirit in the form of a mongoose. Gef once said, “I am a freak. I have hands and I have feet, and if you saw me you’d faint, you’d be petrified, mummified, turned into stone or a pillar of salt!“

Gef lived with Irvings for sometime waking people up if they overslept and attacking any mice that he could get. Word got out and the people of the village were scared and excited some even said to have seen or heard Gef. A few psychics went to go visit the Irving’s house after they moved after the dad died since they believed the house was haunted and they didn’t find anything not even any sign of Gef. Skeptics believe that Gef was a puppet or a split-personality of the father but believers say he was a ghost or a poltergeist or a ghost or even a real talking mongoose.

I don’t know… who does… as a Fortean, I just take it at face value, file it under “Unlikely af” and dig it for the entertainment. He certainly was entertaining, and hey, the lil guy still is if you believe the twitter account Gef the Mongoose @gefbot is real. Hahaha!

Truth be told as a new member of Sharkhunters I was informed via the newsletter of it’s live airing on Saturday but of course as is standard I missed it. Fortunately it was on Shannon’s site last night and also on Soundcloud. And today on his YouTube channel so you can hear this incredible information, too!

I can not believe how much I learned and how exciting it was listening to Harry and especially the awesome Laurence De Mello. What stunning revelations! I mean, my goodness gracious!

If you are at all interested in this topic in general you really owe it to yourself to listen and learn… you, too, will be gob-smacked. I assure you, you will love it and be eager for more, more, more! I hope we don’t have to wait a whole month for more but if so that’s cool.

And I am lucky enough to know a couple. Amazingly lucky. This because I have not led a particularly good life. I have done such awful things.

And yet, the angels watch over me and help me get through the agony that is my life. That is because I can not stop the constant flow of memories, bad memories, of all those things I did. And it is quite literally constant, even while talking or working or typing this very sentence. It never, ever, stops.

Weird.

Today has been a rare treat in that it has been a rather fine day.

First of all it was not terribly hot. Which is great because Ive never done well in heat and it’s worsened with age. Then I noticed traffic outside going slowly down the hill and suddenly the lights got brighter! Bravo power company! Then at about 2:30 I got the word that my phone had finally been unlocked from the Communist-sympathizing Credo Mobile and I was even happier! I walked right over to the AT&T store and signed right up! So, not only am I no longer supporting evil (I was so stupid back then) but I am now saving $30 a month and getting 8 gigs of data instead of 3. Sweet.

Then to top off the day I got to spend some high quality time with my beautiful, wicked-smart tenant and her beautiful, wicked-smart daughter. Gosh I love them so and I consider myself a very lucky man to have them upstairs.

Talk about warm fuzzies! Ooh, ya mon…

Oh, pleased to announce that I have finally joined Sharkhunters! WooHoo, baby! That wasn’t today, though.

Here’s a nifty pic I simply can not explain:

I am not at all sure just what is going on here. I mean, really…

Disappointed that Harry didn’t acknowledge his friend Abel Basti, an Argentinian journalist who lives in Bariloche and most definitely does boots on the ground investigations and is currently working on Adi’s long stays in Colombia.

But… be that as it may I love Harry… and his inimitable work. I would so love to go on one of his expeditions down there and be thrilled beyond imagining!

This interview is not exclusively Hitler and spends a lot of time on the situation in Europe and the world at large and has lots of good commentary on the state of things here now in America. This is great because Harry is a great guy and has a good mind and a good heart. He also spends a good amount of time explaining his history and how he started in on his current work, which is fascinating.j

The submarine story is not what happened! Truth is Adi n Eva left Norway in a Junkers Ju 390 and landed in Uruguay. Awesome! Hear it in this show.

Giganto In The Four Corners

JC Johnson
Published on Dec 14, 2010

Some of my earlier work. Please forgive me on some of the audio. I’ll make mention that one of the subjects discussed in this video, “Joe”- Not only has a “slouch” when he walks, ,, he also has a hump, or what appeared to be a hump on his back. Years later, I’m thinking that it was not a hump on his back? It was “wings” tucked up. We have many reports of “Batsquatch”…. Teec Mountain would be the ideal place for him to fly off of.

I also realize, in sharing these videos, many of you familiar with these areas may well want to go and investigate for your self. I strongly caution you upon encountering one of these creatures, to take nothing but pictures, and not to harm them in any way. Anyone interested in doing a “stakeout” of Teec Mountain, contact us here on YOU TUBE. We have some private land there. With a good blind, and the right camera equipment, with in a few days, if “Joe” is still around, you may well get some incredible photos.

“THE SKULL” (Crypto Four Corners)

Published on Dec 10, 2010

A young man can’t seem to get away from a “skull” he found in the desert.

Freaky deaky… I think I would be far more freaked than this fellow was but it did spare him in the end, his friend as well, so there is that. But my word, I’m not sure what to think.

As far as the skull itself… fascinating… sounds maybe like a small dogman? Mainly because of the description he gives of the neck vertebrae.

Or maybe one of those “extinct” critters, the Amphicyonidae. They’re the Bear Dog. Or perhaps there are Dire Wolves still roaming. Or the fabulous Timber Wolf. These aren’t upright, though, so it’s not a good match for the traditional dogman.

Oh, gosh, I simply don’t know.

Fiat Abarth Prototipo (1973)

The Fiat subsidiary Abarth, in 1973, developed the Abarth X1/9 Prototipo to replace the 124 Spider Abarth as Fiat’s main rally car, but another model was chosen. ‘Prototipo’ is a nice way of putting that nobody knows how many where produced. Parts where constantly swapped and changed during development process. It’s believed that a total of 5 where produced.

Oumuamua

This is Oumuamua.

A visitor from outside of our solar system. At first thought to be just a weird looking rock. Until it started to do things that rocks don’t do.

And that, as you might imagine, is music to my ears.

Sadly we will never know the reality as it is now long gone, but man… this is some awesome high strangeness!

Cigar-shaped Interstellar Object ‘Oumuamua – is Speeding Up!

More space news and info at: http://www.coconutsciencelab.com – observatories including NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope found that the interstellar object named ‘Oumuamua gained an extra boost of speed, which likely comes from comet-like jets of gas.

Speeding up is relative, really, but it is still outside of normal behavioral bounds. And we like that. Meanwhile… They’re still struggling to comprehend what this thing was. Comet? Maybe. Maybe something else entirely.

Mysterious Oumuamua now considered a comet, not an asteroid

KHON2 News
Published on Jun 27, 2018

Months of analysis led scientists to change their mind. A paper published Wednesday announced their new assessment: Oumuamua is not an asteroid, but a comet, albeit an unusual one.

Our dear resident science boffin does a good job here explaining what was up with this… thing.

That’s the thing though. Scientists are actually fascinated by this thing. It’s weird. It’s a visitor from “out there.” Really, really out there.

At first it looked like a rock. It sure acted like a rock. An oddly shaped rock, but a rock. Then, holy crap, it should be slowing down more than it is. What the hell?! Rocks don’t do that!

But “consumer science” sets in, and now it’s “speeding up.” Because “not speeding up like it should”, is boring. For some reason.

Or, they never took a physics class.

Phage is a good man.

It’s stuff like this that makes me want to stay amongst the living, so, Thanks, Mother Nature, keep ‘em coming.

REVIEW/AMG Joe Viglione

This solo album from Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter Daniel David Kirwan has the future producer for Human League and Buzzcocks, Martin Rushent, utilizing those skills here, as well as engineering.

The sound is crystal clear, and a feather in the cap for Rushent as well as Kirwan. It starts off with an uncharacteristic “Ram Jam City,” which has more Lindsey Buckingham sounds than one would expect, especially since the two guitarists come from two different musical worlds.

“Odds and Ends” is more lighthearted, the kind of music Paul McCartney toyed with on The White Album’s “Rocky Raccoon.” What Second Chapter immediately sets forth is the importance of Kirwan as a pop artist, and how, despite Fleetwood Mac’s success after he left, his sounds could still have been beneficial to that supergroup. “Hot Summers Day” is a fine example of that, a beautiful song that could offset Buckingham’s gritty ramblings. It would have made a nice counterpoint as Stevie Nicks complemented Christine McVie’s tunes with her adventures, bringing an important change of pace to that popular band’s hits. The jacket looks like a dusty old family album-style book holding Kirwan’s Second Chapter. And the music reflects that old-world feel in titles like “Skip a Dee Doo” and “Falling in Love with You.”

Three of the best songs on this excellent outing are “Love Can Always Bring You Happiness,” “Second Chapter,” and a sleepy and beautiful number called “Silver Streams.” Kirwan’s tune is haunting as well with its lilting “all you need is love to show you the way from here” chorus. As on a follow-up album, he tends to sound a little like the group America, the vocals with that same America tone and warmth. They very well could have covered “Silver Stream” or “Cascades,” the album’s final track.

This material was crafted right in the middle of America’s run of hits, and maybe they should have replaced Dan Peek with Dan D. Kirwan? The artist’s three solo discs cut in the ’70s make for a very pleasant and thought-provoking listening experience, and that this collection is so good only shows he kicked his departure from the big band off with a vengeance.

This just in from two extremely high-ranking members of the Presidium … captured whilst exploring the wild, untamed wilderness of North Carolina.

A rather interestingly styled centipede, (millipede, maybe, can’t make out the legs (darn eyes)) of a pretty darn good size, too. What a fabulous head… ready for battle, surely!

Oh, good, a bit closer, eh. Dude’s head is flippin’ me out! Seriously.

And here we have a radically styled millipede of a grande size. Maybe a scoche bigger than his or her forest-mate just above, for this nifty critter lives in close proximity to the one above.

At the smaller sizes I saw these images at before I thought the yellow features were just dots but now I see they are cones. Must make it look both unappetizing and too much trouble to eat.

Cool, cool. Nature is all.

I wonder how many different lifeforms are alive on this earth right this minute. I bet there isn’t a number that large.

Randall Carlson is the man when it comes to interpretation of the geologic evidence left behind by the planet-wrenching cataclysm that happened a mere 12,900 years ago, give or take a 100 or so.

There is simply so much evidence on a world-wide basis that directly points to this event… and not stories… real physical evidence written into the surface of the earth.

I long to know about who came before and what they did. It is a nearly impossible dream in our current state. There remain only rare fleeting glimpses… unless we do some incredibly major digging in Bolivia, Peru, Mexico and the Middle East. Somehow it can be doubted that anything like that sort of project will occur without human society going fully over to the good side first. What little has been done has shown some truly amazing structures. The deeper you go, the more incredible the discoveries.

Hugh Newman: Forgotten Stones – Secrets of the Megalithic Quarries FULL LECTURE

MegalithomaniaUK
Published on Nov 18, 2017

Is there an ancient tradition of ‘the birthplace of the temple’, or the quarry where the stones that make up megalithic temples came from? Are megalithic quarries actually ‘sacred sites’? Hugh has investigated several of these quarries and realised the megalith builders may have passed down a very ancient tradition, through multiple generations, that was part of a ritual technique that was seen to bring the stones to ‘life’ and imbue them with ‘power’, as well as leaving clues to future generations as to how they worked, quarried and moved these stones. Modern Freemasons and tribal societies still have access to this knowledge, but now in a more ritualized form. As we’ll see as we survey these sites worldwide, it quickly appears that the ancients deliberately left ‘signatures’, incorporating abstract style, technique, relief carvings, and even hidden geometry, metrology, geodesy and number systems. These covert practices lasted for thousands of years and may give a clue into their mindset and spiritual purpose.

Hugh Newman is an author, conference organiser, world explorer, tour host, and Megalithomaniac. As well as organising the Megalithomania conferences, he has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia and North America. He has appeared on BBC TV, Sky Channel 200, Bosnian TV and the History Channel in the last four seasons of ‘Ancient Aliens’, and recently in ‘Search for the Lost Giants’. He is author of a book about the North American Giants with Jim Vieira, and has published four articles about the secrets of the megalithic quarries online. hughnewman.co.uk

The quarries. Yes! Newman is onto something as it seems somewhat obvious that the quarry is vital to the existence of any sizable stone anything.

I, for one, have always been impressed by how far away quarries can sometimes be from the art or structure. And the bigger the stones and greater the distance the more wonderful it is. The Romans were fab at humping gynormous rocks around… think intercontinental. … Dig? But we are interested in those that came long before the Romans even existed, for those folks had skills that fall squarely into Sir Arthur C. Clarke’s “magic” category.

As you will be able to imagine after this vid.

There’s also a nice tribute to the late and inimitable John Michell near the top, a man I am proud to call friend.

Well, enjoy

Seriously.

The world is certifiably insane. Has been for a while now.

Possibly even comes under some as yet undiscovered and unnamed condition even more tragic than insanity.

It’s somewhat like this out there:

oi

Some things seem o be getting better… but some things are definitely tanking.

I have senior moments with an alarming frequency and my body is crapping out right quick. And my eyes… oh Lord have mercy on my eyes.

Trying to finish up the hedge trimming, i.e. cart away the debris today and I’m almost done but I had to come in after an awfully brief time which surprised me because I chopped it all in one go pretty much and it was a full 20 degrees more out there then than now.

Quite disconcerting. Quite.

oi

oi

 

oi

 

oi

Trying so hard to ignore what my mind keeps telling me. If I do not, bad things invariably happen due to my profound social stupidity. I have no clue. Not even a hint of a trace of a rumor of a clue.

Yup, yup. But today, which is well after the words above the words in the previous paragraph, is mentally painful. God damn demons.  Note, we shall, that this is despite the great time that was spent on the phone this morning with the Angel of the North. Which involved music and audio, even! Far from normal.

Yesterday the aforementioned yard cleanup occurred with past debris included and the front lawn got mowed. A new muffler was then ordered, along with some other stuff, after it finally hit the ground halfway through. I do not have the ability in my current state to grow veg instead of grass, but I think that would be really neat. Something to ponder. Just had a vision of those awesome old manual mowers … those things make the coolest noise. Worth it just for that, ya know?

Okay, there’s more but if I don’t post it will languish in the drafts bin for countless eons… so…

ETA: Doh! During the decapitation of the thousands of helpless green beings, Local Angel appeared, as if by wizardry, for an exceptionally brief encounter which was prime for it’s duration.
