Freaky Search Friday on Saturday… Sunday, December 19… 20, 2009 Edition

Maybe you'd like to ask Mr. Cougar where humans are on the food chain!

Oye, am I late.  But the freaks are a forgiving bunch.  Here they are in all their glory.  The weird, freaky, and sometimes adorable search terms people used to find my blog.  If you see yours on here, remember, I’m not judging you, but everyone else is. 

10. nicely played, mr stephen king – I like this one because it’s worded in such a way to give the impression that this person was in the middle of an actual conversation with Stephen King.  Nicely played, anonymous googler.

9. bigfoot face to face – Sounds like a promo for an Oprah show.  “Coming up next, Bigfoot face-to-face.” 

8. stefanie meyer – Spelling fail.  Most people get the last name wrong.  Way to be different, anonymous googler. 

7. ed asner bare chested – Not shirtless, but bare chested.  It almost makes Ed Asner come off as sexy… Oh, man, now I’m really going to get some freaky search terms torpedoing my blog.

6. successful husband – Quick tell my wife that someone searching for a successful husband was directed to my blog… On second thought don’t.  Then I’ll have to explain why everyone looking for a shirtless Ed Anser is directed to my blog.

5. christorpher walking fat boy slim – You see why spelling matters?  Now everyone thinks Fatboy Slim has a bladder problem and some guy named Christopher is forced to walk him.  Okay, that’s what I think, anyway.  

4. where do humans come on the food chain – What an odd question.   I guess it’s useful information if you’re about to walk into the jungle or dive into the waters off the coast of Australia, but my impression is that most people searching for this kind of information on the internet aren’t really putting themselves in places where predators lurk about. 

3. peyton manning shirtless – Peyton’s first appearance on the shirtless charts.  I’m sure he’ll cherish this forever.

2. jerry seinfeld nude – And I thought Jerry Seinfeld shirtless was bad.  Seriously, we all know Seinfeld pretty well by now.  Does he seem like the kind of guy who would have nude pictures of himself lying around anywhere?

And the number 1 freakiest search term used to find my blog is:

1. zak bagans hairy pits picture – Ewww and yuk and barf nuggets.  Really?   Sometimes I imagine that celebrities are so insecure that they google weird stuff about themselves.  I almost believe that Zak was out one night, and he noticed that his hairy pits were showing so he hurried home to see if any of the paparazzi got a picture of it.

Full Day!

I googled "Bigfoot birthday cake," and this is what came up.

Had a full day of book centered fun!  Started off with an interview on Thunder Radio with Scott Vaughn.  Very cool guy.  I get the sense he really digs SciFi and cryptozoology!  Ended the day talking with the Kids at James Island Charter High School about writing, the Oz Chronicles, publishing, Lost Days and Bigfoot.  They were all insightful, sharp and fun.  The future is looking bright, my friends.  Thanks to Tradd for setting that up.

I’m ending the day with party at a friends house!  They say it’s a Christmas a party, but I like to think it’s my birthday party!

Did I make Bigfoot too violent?

I contacted someone I consider to be a well-respected member of the Bigfoot community last week about Lost Days. I’ll withhold his name out of respect for him. I sent him a link to the video book trailer (see below) and description of the book. He was kind enough to respond, but only to voice his concerns. It seems he thinks I’ve made Bigfoot too violent. His research indicates a shy and gentle creature.

He’s entitled to his opinion, of course, but I beg to differ. I didn’t make Bigfoot a violent creature. I gave the big ape the typical characteristics you would find in any known primate. If we are to assume Bigfoot is real, we have to assume that it is an animal that displays the same survival instincts that all animals demonstrate in the wild. When threatened, it will respond violently. That by no means makes it a violent animal. That makes it an animal behaving as nature intended. It wouldn’t have been realistic for me to have presented Bigfoot otherwise. Granted the title for the video is sensationalistic, to say the least, but it is accurate. Bigfoot does attack someone in my book just as any wild animal would.

Just wanted to get my thoughts out there on this particular subject. The truth is we don’t know how Bigfoot would respond if threatened because there’s no credible evidence that one as ever been threatened.
That is all.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Bigfoot in Minnesota and Illinois

A lot of you have been visting the blog today looking for the trap cam picture of the Minnesota Bigfoot, and you have no doubt been disappointed by not finding it here.  Prepared to be even more disappointed because I have the picture and it’s… well, see for yourself (BTW – Thanks to Lula Brown for point this out to me).

Bigfoot or big hoax?

Maybe this video of a Bigfoot attack in Illinois will leave you with some satisfaction.

Hungry for more?  Read the book.

Prepare to come face to face with a legend!

I can’t sleepblog and some Lost Days news

In a group, club, organization? Get a 25% discount on Lost Days!

Whoa!  I missed posting yesterday!  My excuse?  I fell asleep on my recliner.  I’m not joking.  I fell into a deep, unexpected sleep.  It was so deep Mia freaked me out a bit when she woke me.  I didn’t know where I was, and I only had a vague idea who I was.  I was in no mood or shape to sit down at the computer and blog.

Why was I so tired?  I’ve been getting up at four in the morning in an effort to be more productive.  The trouble is I’m still going to bed at my normal time.  It finally caught up to me.  I’ll adjust soon enough, but until then I ask for your patience. 

Top R.W. Ridley news for today: I’ve worked out a 25% discount for groups who want to buy and read Lost Days.  What does that mean?  If you’re in a book club or you work for a school or part of some cryptozoology group, you can contact me at lostdays@rwridley.com, and I will send you a link to a website, and a discount code so you can get 25% off Lost Days.  All I ask is that you share the discount with everyone in your group.  In fact if you can get 10 people to buy it, we can arrange for a phone conference, and I’ll be happy to answer any of your questions about the book or writing or bigfoot or all of the above.  

Now, please forgive me. My comfy recliner is calling my name…zzzzzzzzzzzz.
