Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes

Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes opens in theaters on October 19, 2012 in Los Angeles, October 26, 2012 in San Diego and November 2, 2012 in San Francisco and Seattle.

In a story laced with Blair Witch-isms, an investigative journalist hopes to regain credibility by proving that a Bigfoot Hunter who claims to have a sasquatch body is a hoax. He gathers his film crew and heads to Northern California’s “Lost Coast”.

Biscardi Does Indiana

Biscardi from 2008

Everyone’s favorite Bigfoot fall guy, Tom Biscardi, has been investigating a bigfoot sighting in Paoli, Indiana. Paoli is a small town in southern Indiana with a population of about 4000.

Biscardi is there looking into reports of a bigfoot sighting from December 9th and 10th. A gentleman named Steve Bradley saw a nine foot creature standing in his backyard after his dogs alerted him. The creature let out a growl and took off into the woods. The next night, Bradley’s wife reported hearing unidentified animal screaming coming from right besides the house.

More information and pictures are online on the Searching For Bigfoot page made for this investigation .

Biscardi is often criticized by bigfoot skeptics and fans alike, but has recently gotten a little slack in the blogosphere.

I stand by my theory that Biscardi was the ‘victim’ of the 2008 RickMat Bigfoot Media Circus.

RickMat Bigfoot One Year Later – Part Two

The August 15 2008 RickMat/Tom Biscardi Bigfoot press conference provided less detail than we had all hoped.

Whales in Space was able to get a reporter into the press conference and we were getting updates as it happened. Eneida Revueltas also wrote a great post summing up the conference.

Several photos were released to the press and also a ‘DNA document‘ that was inconclusive as the source of the material tested.

After the announcement of the August 15 press conference that would present “DNA evidence and photo evidence” of bigfoot, we got our hands on the press release and the first released photo of “Georgia Gorilla”.

Also, some of the back story began to come out. Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer had been hiking in Northern Georgia, when they claim the had come across the body. While removing the body from the woods, they had seen three other living sasquatch. Whitton and Dyer then claim to have stored the body in a freezer. After appearing on the “Squatch Detective”, an internet based radio show hosted by Steve Kulls, they specifically said they wanted to work with Biscardi in presenting the body and evidence to the media. Biscardi was contacted and entered into an agreement with Whitton and Dyer to make the findings public.

Here are some of the vital statistics on the “Bigfoot” body:
*The creature is seven feet seven inches tall.
*It weighs over five hundred pounds.
*The creature looks like it is part human and part ape-like.
*It is male.
*It has reddish hair and blackish-grey eyes.
*It has two arms and two legs, and five fingers on each hand and
five toes on each foot.
*The feet are flat and similar to human feet.
*Its footprint is sixteen and three-quarters inches long and five and three-quarters inches wide at the heel.
*From the palm of the hand to the tip of the middle finger, its hands are
eleven and three-quarters inches long and six and one-quarter inches wide.
*The creatures walk upright. (Several of them were sighted on the same day that the body was found.)
*The teeth are more human-like than ape-like.
*DNA tests are currently being done and the current DNA and photo evidence will be presented at the press conference on Friday, August 15th.

We scrambled and were able to get a reporter, Eneida Revueltas, a press pass, after directly contacting Tom Biscardi by email.

The stage was set. We would wait until the press conference and see Biscardi’s evidence. All ready, Biscardi backlash was mounting, interestingly enough, from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), rival bigfoot researchers to Biscardi’s group.

You would think Biscardi would be approaching this whole affair with caution. Only three years before this, he had appeared on the Coast to Coast AM radio show, claiming to have information from an unidentified woman in Stagecoach, Nevada concerning proof of bigfoot. The lead fell through, causing Biscardi a serious lose in credibility and embarrassment. He later claimed to have been “hoodwinked” by the mystery woman and had to refund a considerable amount of money he had precharged for the viewing the evidence.

 Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer of the RickMat Bigfoot Hoax

In the summer of 2008, Georgia residents Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, took part in a hoax that I believe was designed to discredit and damage the reputation of Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi of

Matthew Whitton and Rick Dye claimed to have the 7 foot 500 pound body of a sasquatch that they had recovered from the wood in Georgia in July. A press conference was called for August 15th 2008 in Palo Alto, where DNA evidence was to be revealed to the public.

By August 19th, it was released that the whole affair was a hoax.

In the next several days, I will post the press conference in five parts and expand on some of my theories concerning this very interesting case of sasquatchploitation.

Whales In Space One Year Anniversary

Its been one year since launched in its current format and what a year in the world of weirdness it has been.

Highlights would have to be the Tom Biscardi’s RickMat Bigfoot Press Conference and when it was revealed to be a hoax. Whales In Space was able to get a reporter to the conference and cover the event as it happened. I still think there is more to this story that was never discussed, except in the private conversations between cryptozoologists and and those who pay very close attention to these things. Also the Blossom Goodchild October 14th UFO prediction stands out as one of the most interesting stories of Whales In Space’s first year.

The February 15th Texas Fireball caught on video and the amazing number of other Fireball sightings and mysterious sonic booms before and after wards also caught the worlds attention.

Also in the first year, we saw the rise of sasquatchploitation, multiple black balloon cluster UFO sightins, two Montauk Monsters and the possible return of batsquatch or at least some clarification to the story.

And still going one, with reports still coming in, the Orange Ball of Light (ORBL) sightings over the UK. If these are just chinese lanterns, I would suggest buying some stock in a chinese lantern company, because sales are up.

A big thanks to everyone who read a post, who made a comment, who sent in photos and stories and tips. A big thanks to everyone who linked to our site.

In the first year we had 200 posts exploring the weirdness of aliens, UFOs, exopolitics, cryptozoology, other paranormal fortean phenomenon, and ultraterrestrial activities. I expect the next year to bring weirder yet stories.
