A Sad Week , I wonder if they are taking applications for "Nessie Hunters"
There is no picture for this blog, as I find nothing funny or amusing about this sad situation.
Have researchers in this field been too hard on M.K. Davis?
Hum, I don't know to be honest. When I read all the various blogs and message boards, the overall impression I get is frustration. Once again, bigfoot researchers are being told there is a "new discovery" - but you must wait to find out what it is. I think this is the source for much of the frustration directed at M.K. Davis.
This DVD and movie being discussed is really a sore spot with some. Personally, I would hope M.K. Davis can prove beyond a reasonable doubt, that what he is saying is true, before he commits those comments to film of any kind - but that wish may be in vain.
Recently amid controversy, the person responsible for the filming of the DVD stated that M.K was considering leaving the field of Bigfoot, due to the harsh criticism by some... This person then went on to issue a threat against a crypto blogger, basically if that blogger did not apologize to M.K Davis, and M.K did infact pull out of Bigfoot and the DVD project, he would infact take this blogger into court and recover any and all financial losses stemming from M.K.'s pull out from the making of this DVD.
Being someone who works in the legal field - I had to sit up and say out loud "How"?? I would really like to know how that person figures they can recover financially from someone else - if M.K. backs out of a verbal agreement with him... This is very interesting (or comical depending on how you look at it). There must be some obsecure contract law I am unaware of - and if thats the case, then I would appreciate someone updating me on the recent court ruling - or one I missed.
Saying Im sorry.
This crypto blogger did post an apology - which I thought was very big of him. I think its to bad that M.K didn't take that advice a few days ago when it was offered to him. Much of this could have been stopped days ago, had M.K made a general statement saying "I did not know the use of the words "digger Indian" was a derogatory term, and if I offended anyone, I do apologize". This could have ended much of this.
The message is being lost.
If M.K is at all correct about anything in this "new discovery" - I am afraid the message may be lost because of all this drama. Isn't there enough "drama" in the field of Bigfoot research? Why create more or allow it to continue when you can do something to stop it?
And now, this :
"First, let me say on behalf of MK Davis, a seriously felt thank you to all who stood by him in this last (of many yet to come) shouting match over his newest findings. Here is what we have in a nutshell. (MK has suggested to me that ALL be made known prior to the DVD release through s secured chat room)."
Secured Chat site? This is how the information will be released that M.K put out a Press Release on? So, now my fellow bigfooters - you must either buy the DVD, watch the movie - or gain access to this secured chat site.
Why did M.K. send out a "press release"?
Seems to me he waisted his time typing, if he only intends to give out the information of his "new discovery" to whomever decides to try for membership into this secured chat site.
Everyday this goes on - I am less and less interested.
I can get this kind of information from the National Enquirer to be honest. Do I think there will be some "startling new revelations" revealed by M.K. Davis - No, I dont. I like M.K. he is a good man, and he has always had good intentions, everyone speaks very highly of him, and we have always had very nice exchanges. But I must admit, I am stunned by all this, M.K. issued a "press release" he knew would hit the bigfoot community like a ton of bricks - then told us all to "Wait for the movie"... But, then the announcement of a DVD... Then came the horrible radio program which started the rest of this.
M.K. has made some incredible claims in relation to the Patterson/Gimlin film in recent days, but you know what - I wont spend my money on a DVD or a movie to get the information of this "new discovery". Why? Because I wouldnt expect M.K. to pay for information I have.
When I think about the energy expended in this battle of words by some in the bigfoot community, I shake my head - and wonder what good any of this does for the research. Some seem more entertained by this drama, than the research itself. I often wonder if this happens so often because footage rarely comes out, new discoveries happen very seldom and basically this builds frustration within the researchers, thus the verbal attacks on each other. Its sad when you think about it for too long......
So, I will post something fun tonight :) YEAHHHHHHH ITS FRIDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
