BIGFOOT'S bLOG Blogged by Cultural Elite!

High-brow blogger JZOG recently blogged our blog on his CORKSCREW, at , the story here: .

He also did an expose on the shop a while back, with some photos of the BIGFOOT BOOKS store in a much more organized, earlier state. Find Feb. 28, 2006 here:

Blogger JZOG also reveals here his cryptic connections with the mysterious Church of Bigfoot, Scientist (at least as their artistic spokesman). One of Bigfoot's revolutionary missives bearing a JZOG image may be found in printable and site-editable state here: . The text of the Message...
Attention Humans of Arcata!
As I sit here meditating high atop the giant ancient redwood that I call The Big Kahuna, my thoughts turn to the lame pretenders to my mode of true wildness here in Arcata. (Not all tree sitters have cute hippie names and a P.R. machine--on the other hand you'll get no annoying new age homilies from me either). My righteous beastly rage has been choked back long enough, and its time that a few things were made clear. My anger this time is not directed at what might be expected my natural enemies-the clear cutting megacorps that threaten my (and by extension all) existence. Yes the Maxxams of the world deserve our bitter scorn. But there are other more subtle enemies closer to home. My annoyance is directed at the ragamuffin dreadlocked white people that threaten to turn true wildness and resistance into a lifestyle cliché. These people dilute the impact of my actual mission to convince mankind that they're on the road to complete collapse. Stupid, silly and stoned is not a revolutionary stance, and those that would truly follow the Bigfoot path of restraining rogue capitalism must prove themselves worthy. (Please can the lame folk music too-Bigfoot is strictly a bebop man). As that great philosopher Kermit the Frog once sang, "it's not easy to be green." Especially when some of your fellow greens are half conscious knee jerk trustafarians who try to cop my unique style with not nearly the panache with which I carry myself. Hairiness and the reek of patchouli are no match for the authentic virile musky presence of yours truly. I am the ORIGINAL WILDMAN-accept no substitutes. Those who would deign to follow in my footsteps without my soulful intensity and intelligence beware of my terrible wrath!!! You have been warned,
Bigfoot (the creature formerly known as Rugaru)

Book Sale Leads to Discovery of Sasquatch in Switzerland

Following a customer's purchase of David Paulides' fine, recent book, "The Hoopa Project: Bigfoot Encounters in California" (review coming soon!), BIGFOOT BOOKS discovered that there IS a sort of Bigfoot activity in Switzerland. The interesting German language-based blog - Sasquatch, Bigfoot und Kryptozoologie,, posted statements made by the proprietor of the store. Hence we now have proof that Sasquatch is still active on all the continents of the globe, save perhaps Antarctica.


'"Das Ding ist noch immer da"
Willow Creek bleibt Bigfoot-Hotspot

Gerade bestellte ich bei Steven Streufert, einem Buchhändler im kalifornischen Willow Creek, das Buch "The Hoopa Project" von David Paulides. Willow Creek gilt als Heimatstadt von Bigfoot: In den 50er-Jahren startete dort der Hype, 1967 trottete wenige Kilometer entfernt ein vermeintlicher Bigfoot vor die Linse von Roger Patterson, und bis heute werden aus der Umgebung des Kaffs Sichtungen gemeldet. Deshalb fragte ich Streufert, wie denn die Lage momentan sei.

"Here at the shop I hear about BF activity all the time, and yes, it is quite frequently very convincing. There's a regular crowd of researchers and BF hunters who keep me abreast of their current exploits; and once in a while I join them up on Bluff Creek. Suffice it to say, the thing has not gone away, despite what one hears in the media and all the sorry hoaxes."

Er höre dauernd von Bigfoot-Sichtungen und einige der Geschichten seien schon sehr überzeugend, meint Streufert. Er werde von den Bigfoot-Jägern auf dem Laufenden gehalten, manchmal begleite er diese auch zum Bluff Creek hinauf (dort, wo der Patterson-Film entstand). "Das Ding ist noch immer da", schlussfolgert er.

Ein Review des Buches folgt, sobald ich es gelesen habe.'

That's why I asked Streufert how the situation currently is.... He constantly hears of bigfoot sightings, and some of the stories were very convincing, Streufert says. He will of the Bigfoot-hunters to be kept, he sometimes accompany them up to Bluff Creek (where the Patterson film was made). "The thing is still there," he concludes.
