Cliff Barackman: Finding Bigfoot


Y'all know I was very excited about "Finding Bigfoot" on Animal Planet (Sunday nights). I swear, I'm gonna quiz y'all on the next episode, so you better watch it. Expect a review on Monday. They're doing the Florida skunk ape this Sunday night.

I recorded the premiere episode. It was on at 11 pm, so I kind of nodded off while recording it and rewatched it. When I rewatched it again (okay, the third time-I can't get enough of looking for BF), I looked at it as an investigator myself. Who would I want on my team? Who impresses the hell out of me? I was absolutely floored by Cliff Barackman. He was not only very well spoken and intelligent, but logical and he had an edge to him that I recognized. This man has encountered BF and never been the same, seeking answers. I know that because I am the same in the paranormal world. We recognize it in each other.

I see this guy as being part of the new generation of leaders now that some of the old heroes of the 60s and 70s are leaving us. I have few in the industry I trust. You have your moneymakers like Biscardi who is more like a carnival barker, and you have your yahoo gun-toting camo wearing dudes, and weekend guys who want to camp and drink and kick BF ass. Then, there's the very few I truly trust the opinion of and Cliff has earned a spot on that anointed lists of trustworthy types.

He's been working in BF research a long time and his conviction gives me goosebumps and perhaps a few heart palpitations. Oh, come on, I'm Autumnforest---do you expect me not to have a bit of a crush? I might not be Elvira, but I think I'd give Cliff two thumbs up or, in my own fashion, a double something...



(Cliff, honey, I'm saying in my own Autumnforest way that you stimulate my brains. That's what gets me all excited. In the world of BF, I'm stalking, ahem, following you. Consider yourself in good company, my other victims, ahem, interests are Tesla and Einstein).

  1. I think your doing more than stimulating brains... lol.

  2. I think it's a mind puzzle. The puzzle is--recalling what I just wrote about.

  3. I totally missed this show. I'm going to hope that episodes will be online. It's gotten a bit of buzz from even some who might have criticized these members in the past, which surprises me. I don't know much about this guy, but I'll trust your instincts on him. I suppose if he earns the much sought-after "Cleavie" award, then he can't be all that bad.... :-D

  4. Cullan, Cullan, Cullan, tsk, tsk, tsk. Yes, do catch up on this show. I'm sure the channel will reshow episode 1 again to draw in more viewers who missed the opening night. I've been sad to see some of the big-time guys either pass away or retire out of the biz and have been watching for others to jump forward. I like Meldrum, but I do admit that he comes across as a limp dick at times and I think that's just his personality, very sedate, but also he's not skeptical enough for me. I want someone who plays it like I do in the GH world, "give me proof that rings true for me and my keen critical mind." (Yes, I do have a mind above that cleavage and it's even more robust!) I'm looking for those that I can trust to blaze a new path. As I am tackling the GH world with an outside the box mentality, I'm looking for the same in the BF world. Someone brought along the wood knocking and howling methods and like on the GH show, people think KII meters and EMF are the shit, I have to question towing a party line without questioning it. I think Cliff is the guy to look at BF in a new way. Hell, I want him to try out my theory that BF is sighted more in early autumn when berries are overly ripe and he likes to get drunk. He is a primate. Even chimps will go for the overripe berries when they can get a buzz and when buzzed, they can get be sighted more easily (perhaps stumbling across the roadway). :-)

  5. I enjoyed the show and will definitely be watching. I can't wait for us to do our own BF hunt.

  6. It should be hilarious. You think he'd like hemp brownies or hemp cupcakes?

  7. I wonder if Bigfoot would be tempted by THAT?

  8. Big foot will be amazed...by your writings!

  9. Yes. We think getting him buzzed might help his disposition, let him open up a bit. Just kidding, but damn if it isn't an interesting idea...

  10. Adrian; If only I could get him to sit still and read them!

  11. He might lean towards the brownies. I am thinking that BF might be a chocolate lover. I would think he is sick and tired of berries and ready for something new to thrill his palate.

  12. A little cobbler? Reminds me of Gilligan's Island when they made everything out of coconut. He must thoroughly get sick of berries.

  13. Speaking of Gilligan's Island, remember the episode where the crate of experimental radioactive seeds washed ashore? They grew those super veggies that gave them super powers!

  14. Oh Jeez--I forgot all about that episode. I thought I dreamed it because I only saw it once.
