Real life monsters are something I wish we heard more about every damn day! Yeah there’s nothing quite like a good mysterious cryptid video surfacing. The only problem is that most of these, especially these days, can be easily faked digitally or of course with blurry cell phone footage to appear like something straight out of the X-Files. But not so fast folks!
Let’s take a look at some interesting videos quick of some supposed “real life monsters” caught on film within the last year or so. The first one is a totally legit video, of a giant boar, dubbed “pigzilla” that’s got the internet in a frenzy today. I’m a huge fan of the 1984 Aussie flick “Razorback” (pictured in the photo above) and this monstrous pig in the video proves to be a real life version of the 80’s creature in the flesh!
Moving on….What the hell is this?! This cool video features a seemingly big sea creature floating through the waters of the Gulf of Mexico recently. I’d hate to see this thing swimming beside me while snorkeling, some think it’s some sort of cephalopod, whatever it is it’s crazy to know things like this exist in the waters of planet Earth, real life aliens… Continue reading
I’ve expressed my interest in lucid dreaming here at Universal Dork a couple times in the past and today I thought I’d take a moment to talk about ‘astral projection’. First though, if you’re not quite sure what lucid dreaming is let me make it simple, it’s when you have a very vivid dream and something within the dream triggers you to become aware that you are dreaming (movies like Inception & Dreamscape are good examples). In many of these cases often with a little practice and focus you can learn to have them quite regularly. To be honest it makes movies like ‘Inception’ feel pretty boring. It’s one of the most incredible things I’ve experienced and anyone can do it with a little effort.
There’s another practice that’s linked to lucid dreaming called ‘astral projection‘, also known as an ‘out of body experience’ or OBE. I’ve worked a ton on different methods to experience this phenomenon with various degrees of success. I can tell you with honesty that it’s lead to the most bizarre & unexplainable experiences of my existence. I’m to this day a bit uncertain exactly what astral projection really is at it’s core, some believe it’s just an elaborate lucid dream while others believe it’s the complete separation of consciousness from the physical body. I intend to find out for myself what the truth really is behind it. Thus far I’ve had several unexplainable experiences that have lead me to believe that perhaps there’s abilities humans have that involve being able to enter into different dimensions of existence that are not of our physical material world. It’s also made me question heavily my beliefs on life after death. Perhaps there’s more to us than just our bodies of flesh and bone? Continue reading
Yeah it’s true, Field & Stream reports that apparently Jeff Meldrum, a professor at Idaho State University is going to spend $200,000 to scan the Cascades with drones in search of finding a motherfuckin’ Sasquatch!! Goddammit even Bigfoot is being affected by drones! Maybe this will get the big footed one out in the open and on the streets to protest his personal privacy!? It seems the furry fellow can’t hide anywhere now! Meldrum however doesn’t give a hoot about ‘Squatch’s civil rights and is determined to prove critics wrong once and for all, he even wrote a book about it, Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, which he claims isn’t being taken seriously.
He goes on to say ” If you go into Barnes and Noble and ask for my book, they’ll direct you to the New Age section, you know, somewhere between Bermuda Triangle and crop circles,” however Meldrum tries to tell them: “My book is different. This is a natural history book! We’re simply asking a biological question: Is there a species of primate behind the legend of Sasquatch? And I think, based on the evidence, the answer is yes,”
He’s faced a lot of criticism for his belief in Bigfoot which roadblocked his career many times, however it seems Meldrum is getting private funding for his drone scan in the Northwest. It seems that there are people out there who do still believe who’ve got the cash to make this happen. Now I’m not a fan of drones, but hey if we are going to use them I’d rather it be for something like this than secretly bombing another country and killing innocent people.
Besides wouldn’t life be better knowing that Bigfoot was real?! I think we need to focus our technology on stuff like this and say Nessie! So I say kudos to you Mr. Meldrum maybe you’ll start a new trend! Just remember once you find the big guy respect his privacy and don’t bomb Bigfoot dammit!!!!
