BLOBSQUATCHING THE PGF: The Problem of Intentional Imaginative Pareidolia; The Beckjordian Background of Delusion, and MKD Emerging from Retirement (Again)

Early June, 2012 Edition
Where is the "Bob Gimlin in the Bushes," Blevins?

Pareidolia can be fun. Try it sometime. Just stare long enough at some abstract thing, pattern or setting, perhaps crossing your eyes a little, and you will begin to see forms and things that emerge. Faces will form from wood paneling. Clouds will transform into fleeting dragons. At times these can be truly surprising, even epiphanic; but that does not always mean that they are real.

Just like M.K. and his odd offspring, Mr. Lee Blevins, we are going to take an "in-depth look" at the Patterson-Gimlin film in this expedition into the inner reaches of the mind. SEE BELOW FOR EXAMPLES. Click on the images to view in a larger size, gaze at them long enough, and maybe, just maybe, you will find the deep secrets I have found there. If not, well, there are colored circles drawn around some of these hidden mysteries to guide you.

Bekjord the Grey, ET Prophet
The great Granddaddy of all of this Blobsquatchery is Jon-Erik Beckjord. He was noted for progressively odd theories about the Bigfoot creatures and the Patterson-Gimlin film as a particular example. He was featured in an article called IS BIGFOOT FROM OUTER SPACE. As he aged, so his theories proliferated into the paranormal. There is a possibility that he was some kind of great Visionary, but I think parsimony suggests that there was some kind of mental illness going on as the years went by. Pareidolia may be fun, but delusional mental illness is not, especially for those others subjected to it, like Tara and Loren. He was known to appear at Bigfoot conferences wearing an "ET" grey alien mask in his later years.

Here is an example of some of the things that Beckjord saw in the PGF. It would seem that Beckjord was the creator, or at least the primal propagator, of the notorious "Red Circle." Below are some "baby Bigfoots," and other hidden Bigfooty presences he found in the bushes behind the film subject. He seems to have been an influence on MK Davis' work looking into the Patterson Film, as well. Before his website went down after his death, Beckjord displayed many an early MK image on there.

Did you know there was a "Blob-Gimlin"? It is only visible in one frame, but it does look a little like a younger Bob... or Elvis. This is the basis of the theories of one Leroy Blevins. However, how could he not see the "red-headed man" whose head is right next to "Bob's" and is actually much more clear than the "Bob"?

Even across space, we

"Face" on Mars, or the "Man
on the Moon."
Not all Pareidolia is due to some kind of mental condition or delusion. IN FACT, we ALL have it. It is a natural function of the mind seeking patterns and forms in sensory input. We are, in fact, hard-wired to "See Things," especially faces and human forms. This seems to be one of the earliest and most primal, primary tendencies of the mind, as the infant appears to recognize faces before other objects, and also to make faces to its mother to enhance bonding, and hence to increase chances of survival. Being human, we tend to see the human form projected upon the world. In many cases of blobsquatch identification, or even Bigfoot sightings in "the field," Pareidolia is what is really going on; and hence, the oddities of human perception should always be subjected to skeptical scrutiny before they are taken literally as real.

Sometimes "Blobsquatches" are not pareidolia or "matrixing," but simply mis-perception. Here is an image captured from a recent "Bigfoot video" that was said to "Confirm on All Points." I beg to differ, a little....
Confirms on... REDNECK! Bigfoot... NOT.
Here is an image found publicly posted on Facebook that is said to contain "many" Sasquattles, and even an alien or two...
I dunno, folks. I mean, I see only shrubbery.
In the cover of this upcoming book, BIGFOOT BLUES, there are said to be five Bigfoot hiding in the forest. When I looked I found TEN or more. What is going on here? Pariedolia? Or did the cover artist simply miss the Sasquatch hiding in his/her very own photograph? It is a great mystery!
Can YOU find the five Bigfoot in this book cover?
Another form of "blobbing" is the suppositious mis-identification of so-called "evidence." With "Squatch on the Brain Syndrome" just about anything can be a sign of "Bigfoot." Like this kind of thing widely circulated on Facebook Bigfoot groups and walls....
Bigfoot Did It! Yep, that's right. Every stick that falls is a sign....
Here is a CLASSIC: "Bigfoot" AFTER he has dematerialized, from Oklahoma. I was assured that there was a real, physical Bigfoot standing right there just a second before it entered "That Place Where They Go," in another dimension, or something. Rather than a blobsquatch, this is what we might call the "No-Squatch."
De-materializing Bigfoot
You may have heard that M.K. Davis retired. I hope he knows that despite some kidding here, we all wish him the best of health and happiness. Anyway, he's come back a little, drawn by the irresistible magnet of Bigfooting infamy. He's seeing White Bigfootses everywhere! In a recent blog, published just about an hour or two after I took him apart piece by piece live on the air on BlogTalk Radio, M.K. stated,

"It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to go in new directions. My health is declining. I have a few projects to finish I hope…before “I” am finished. I hope that this site and this blog meant something to you. To all the nearly 30,000 people who have visited, please know that you are important to me and your interest in my work is greatly appreciated. I have protected my sources, and I have done right by them and by you. I leave with a clean conscience. 
I’ll continue with the Bigfoot Central show as long as Don Monroe wants and artistfirst will have me. I thank you one and all."

HIS RETIREMENT DIDN'T LAST VERY LONG, DID IT? Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in! Eh, MK?
MKD, in current state, after years of "Blobbing"
So, just what is it that is causing this flirtation with retirement? We have inside information and a photo that reveals it.... the rare, but highly contagious condition, Blobbybluritis. The photo seen here shows M.K. in his current state, after countless hours, months, years, spent staring into his computer monitor at overblown-up images from the 1967 Bigfoot film. It is with this sad case that we urge caution and moderation when viewing the images that follow.
or, There Was More Than Bigfoot There That Day...

MK found many a thing in the PGF, so so may I. What follows is just the tip of the iceberg of things I've seen in the film, and managed to get screen captures of... it is said that blobsquatches are highly elusive, excellent at camouflage, and of course may simply walk through walls or into another dimension. Perhaps these don't quite live up to Beckjord's "Alien Android" theory, but we still hope you'll enjoy. YOU'LL HAVE TO CLICK THE IMAGES TO ENLARGE THEM, and be sure to stare at each for as long as it takes for your eyes to cross, hypnosis to set in, and the hidden secrets to become animate and real to you. All of these images were found in the REAL PGF, not elsewhere, nor were they Photoshopped into the photos.

Patterson-Gimlin Film: A New Tall Tale

Here you'll quickly learn that there is far more to our existence on this planet than is currently explained by science. I welcome your feedback and your true encounters with the unknown.

BELIEVABLE? I doubt it. A credible source for history? Not. Here are a few excerpts....

"Remember the movie where Bigfoot walks past the screen and looks at the camera?," he said. "For years, when it was shown on TV, it was edited. There's a big piece missing. When they show it on television, it's shown out of context. This guy we hooked up with has a different film. An entirely different thing."

The film starts off very shaky. After a few seconds the subjects come into focus. It starts off with a few of these creatures digging for something. Not just one. I remember him saying distinctly "three". They are also very far away from the camera. They start to walk down a trail or a path and then they stop by a pond or a puddle of water. They separate, but then soon regroup. It seemed like these creatures were just doing a surveillance of the area.

"Surreal" is the word he used because he was not sure what to make of this. The whole time the camera is on them and they don't know it. Then all of a sudden, a hail of gunfire comes from the tree line and blast these things cold. One of the creatures drops and another one bolts into the woods. The remaining one strangely just walks/staggers off. As one of the creatures walked off, someone kept taking pot shots at it from a distance. That's the creature you see in the popular film.

He also said that there was another film, which was shocking as well as disgusting. It shows a bunch of men dragging one of the lifeless bodies and placing it on a tarp or a pool cover and then cutting it up. Obviously, there was no sound on these videos. I told him that if this was lost footage or something, then it would probably be worth something to somebody.

John said that there was a person with money who wanted to have a look at the film and maybe do business at one point. He was a lawyer/businessman type. John also added that an eccentric named Eric Beckord, a researcher, was harassing him at one point. He threatened John by saying he would drag his ass into Supreme Court if he had to. He said that Mr. Beckjord came off with a sense of entitlement and claimed to be the rightful owner of all films related to Bob Patterson. Then he was never heard from again.

BOB Patterson??? A pond on Bluff Creek? I think we can write this one off, folks. The fabricator of this silly story obviously does not know that the full Roll One of the Patterson film material has been recovered by Bill Munns from a copy in John Green's collection. There was NO such footage on the roll, but just some scenery and horseback shots down in the creekbed. There are also no edits from the camera original. This is just... A TALL TALE. That is all this stuff is, just like all of that stuff MK "sees" in the P-G Film, from which tiny suggestions and blurry forms create a whole false edifice of suppositional, fantastical and delusional history.

We have it on the word of one of the very few who was there in the small room after the 2008 Ohio Bigfoot Conference where MK first announced his outlandish theory that MK DID SAY THAT DREADED WORD, "MASSACRE." MK denies ever having said this, so we don't know. I wasn't there. In any case, I believe the word of my witness. The name, "Bluff Creek Massacre Theory" STICKS. Sorry MK.
