Igopogo the legend of a mythical creature living in Lake Simcoe

Image
From orilliamatters.com

The doubters were many. The stories of children, or from fishermen who may or may not have packed a bottle or two into their gear, were greeted by skepticism from the local folks.

They wanted to believe, but the tales of some sort of water monster gliding just beneath the waves of Kempenfelt Bay were just a bit too tall for most to swallow.

Beginning in 1880, what had been only a small footnote in First Nations mythology suddenly became one of the most talked about subjects on Barrie street corners and in the local press.

The newspapers were conflicted as to how to cover the happenings, if they were happenings at all.

The people were keen to read all about any new developments in regards to the strange creature sightings, but the local editors were used to dealing in facts. There were few of those to be had.

"I screamed I didn't know what it was, but that thing was tall!" Cook shouted.

She says the Sasquatch sightings started back in March. Footprints are her proof.

"I think I've counted about eight different sized prints," said Cook. "This is a juvenile, but look at how long it is. That's a big ... big print."

For centuries now, trackers have been trying to trap the elusive creature. John Bruner documents sightings across the country and runs the Bigfoot 911 Facebook group.

"It was huge," Bruner said. "It was on two legs. It was bipedal. The hair on the head on …

Loch Ness has it's monster...

The Northwest has Bigfoot...

And Kelowna, British Columbia has the Ogopogo.

Jim La Rocque swears he and his son spotted the creature earlier this month in Oganakan Lake.

“All I heard was a swooshing sound,” La Rocque tells Global News

He grabbed his cell phone, and began capturing video of what looks like seven fins coming up out of the water. That would be consistent with a gaggle of reported sightings of the serpent-like creature over the last two centuries.


The Four Faces Of Doctor Who

Image
The Fourth Doctor is an incarnation of the Doctor, the protagonist of the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who. He was portrayed by Tom Baker.

Within the series' narrative, the Doctor is a centuries-old Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels in time and space in his TARDIS, frequently with companions. At the end of life, the Doctor can regenerate his body; as a result, his physical appearance and personality change. Baker portrays the fourth such incarnation, a whimsical and sometimes brooding individual whose enormous personal warmth is at times tempered by his capacity for righteous anger.

His initial companion was intrepid journalist Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), who had traveled alongside him in his previous incarnation, and she is later joined by surgeon Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter). His later companions included robotic dog K9, savage alien warrior Leela (Louise Jameson), Time Lady Romana (Mary Tamm and Lalla Ward), alien teenage aristocrat Nyssa …

Traditionally, its TV presence has been relegated mostly to The Clone Wars. Of course, the animated “interquel” will make a return on the Disney Plus streaming service, but now, it sounds like fans have a lot more to look forward to as well.

New Legend Of Boggy Creek Poster Takes A Jab At Godzilla

Image
Take a peak at the brand-new poster for The Legend of Boggy Creek that takes a stab at a certain giant Japanese monster that we all know and love.

I don't know that anyone would seriously call the “Fouke Monster” the true "King of the Monsters" so I don't think Godzilla has anything to worry about.

Well unless they decide to make a Godzilla vs Yetigar movie ... you will have to read the tenth issue of the old Godzilla series from Marvel Comics to get that joke.

Okay so the classic 1972 movie The Legend of Boggy Creek has gotten a new 4K restoration by the George Eastman Museum and is set to will premiere this weekend (June 14, 2019) at the Perot Theater in Texarkana, Texas.

Don't remember The Legend of Boggy Creek:

The Legend of Boggy Creek was conceived and directed by Arkansas native, Charles B. Pierce. The movie was released independently in 1972, where it initially played in sold-out theaters in the Arkansas and Louisiana areas. In 1973, it was picked up by …
