Finding Bigfoot Season Premiere

Animal Planet has announced the new season of "Finding Bigfoot" will begin November 11th at 10 p.m., with a 9:00 p.m. "pre-show" leading up to the episode.

"Finding Bigfoot" routinely takes a beating in online forums for a variety of reasons, to which I say, "Who cares?" The show is fun. It is post-modern folklore. It is character-driven. The search is the point, not the result. But I digress. Having met the cast, I am pulling for them. They are great to their fans and very generous with their time. We are very much looking forward to a twenty-episode, internationally flavored Season Three. For more info on "Finding Bigfoot" go here.

G-FAN #100; It's a Monster

The one-hundredth issue of G-FAN magazine is arriving in mailboxes across North America as of this writing. It is appropriately gargantuan, with lots of special artwork for the occasion. I am especially glad that Martin Arlt (editor and publisher of Mad Scientist magazine) took up the gauntlet of a "100 Best Moments" article--can't wait to settle in and savor that one.

This issue looks to be an excellent representation of North American Godzilla fandom that falls under the G-FAN/G-FEST umbrella. My "toybox of life" is much richer for having G-FAN to explore on a quarterly basis. Kudos to J.D. Lees and every contributor for sharing their enthusiaism for this genre!

Thanks for visiting Monsterland Ohio--more G-FEST reports are on the way...
