The Grey Area Update

Just a quick update to let you all know "The Grey Area" is now on iTunes!!!!!!! Some of you have discovered this, and both Monica and I want to thank you for downloading :)

On the next program scheduled for Wednesday June 18 at 9:00 pm Central, Chris Buntenbah of the
Texas Bigfoot Research Conservency will be our guest.

Chris will discuss "Operation Forest Vigil" (an ongoing camera trap operation by the TBRC), Game Cams, Equipment, and finally what is being referred to as "The Smiter Photo". Chris was kind enough to come to us and use his photo software to analyze this photo. Find out what he thinks, and why.

Also, if you were in chat for the first program as a guest, you will need to create an account with Talkshoe to chat during any future "
The Grey Area" programs. We apologize to those who sat quietly or were discussing the topics like adults, unfortunately a few bad eggs always ruin it for the rest (and as usual, it's the same bad eggs).

To make it easy for you, please follow
THIS link.

Here are photos that will be discussed on the program:

    9 days and counting.

    In the spirit of telling the truth, as you want others to do, are you going to tell your listners and readers why you ran from Washington State to start a new life in Texas? Would you like me to?

  • At 8:26 PM, Blogger Melissa said…

    I am posting Mr. Johnsens comments sent to my blog, well - because he complains when he does not see them.

    Mr. Johnsen, you may as well do whatever it is your going to do, because there will be NO APOLOGY forthcoming. You seem to think your DVD's and statements you ask to be published on internet blog sites - are untouchable.. I'm not sure why you think that, as EVERYONE in the good ole USA is entitled to an opinion. I stand by my opinion, and I will not apologize for anything. Show me where I was factually incorrect, and I will make changes. But, my opinions are mine - and as you want public attention (and get it) you are just as open to criticism as anyone else.

    When you threaten and harrass people it makes you look bad.

    Oh, and by the way GENIUS.. I never lived in Washington State. Once again, you prove you know next to nothing about the things you say. LMAO. Everyone knows where I moved to Texas from. And, I have NEVER lived in Washington State.

  • At 8:35 PM, Blogger Melissa said…

    Just so everything is in one place... Here is the first comment Mr. Johnsen posted.

    You have 10 days to formulate and publish a statement of apology to me for the constant innuendo and bashing I have received on every one of your published sites, as well as Forest Giants (I terminated my yahoo account) and Cryptomundo.

    Also, I believe you are a regular on Cryptozoology dot com. If so you may post it there as well.

    Ten days, then if you haven't complied I play the one thing I know will get your attention.

    Ten days and counting. Your move.

    Mr Johnsen,

    It disgusts me to see a man of what you claim to be of good character using blackmail to achieve personal vindication.

    So Sir, I say to you, you have 3 days to comply before I respond.

    Thank You,

    Sean Forker

  • At 8:03 AM, Blogger wildphotographer said…

    Go for it Sean.

    It isn't blackmail, its purely and simply payback. And it is perfectly legal and will be, in my opinion, VERY effective.

    What is a kid like you doing hanging out with a woman old enough to be your mother?

    Melissa...8 days.

  • At 4:25 PM, Blogger Melissa said…

    Im not sure what your waiting for.. Go ahead, publish the info your dieing to get out.

    This should be good. So far you have already gotten one piece of CRITICAL information wrong.. LMAO... I can not wait to read your latest piece of crap research.. :) Just spell my name right please.

  • At 4:26 PM, Blogger Melissa said…

    Oh and P.S.

    Why would Sean hang out with a woman old enough to be his mother? For the same reason you continue to harrass a woman young enough to be your daughter....

    :) Have a nice day.

  • At 8:13 PM, Blogger Melissa said…

    By the way, for those of you who do not know.. Everyone pay attention to Number 5.

    Blackmail is defined as:

    –noun 1. any payment extorted by intimidation, as by threats of injurious revelations or accusations.

    2. the extortion of such payment: He confessed rather than suffer the dishonor of blackmail.

    3. a tribute formerly exacted in the north of England and in Scotland by freebooting chiefs for protection from pillage.
    –verb (used with object)

    4. to extort money from (a person) by the use of threats.

    5. to force or coerce into a particular action, statement, etc.: The strikers claimed they were blackmailed into signing the new contract.

    If you do not know the law Mr. Johnsen, you would be wise to not quote it, or state what is and is not legal. Stick to DVD's, the law is not your thing. Mr. Forker is right, you are wrong Mr. Johnsen.

    Melissa :)

  • At 8:34 PM, Blogger Matt said…

    Mr. Johnsen

    I would like to ask also as to why a man of your age is using school yard tactics to get what he wants. It seems to me that every time someones does something you don't like you stomp around and throw a tantrum.

    I find it rather hilarious.

  • At 9:26 PM, Blogger wildphotographer said…


    You are but 17 years younger than me, my dear. Really a stretch for me to be your dad. But if that had been the unfortunate case, you would have been taken to the woodshed long ago.

    If you think I have broken the law, make your move. You are digging yourself in deeper than you know. I have no announcements to make regarding you. Your flippant answer about Washington State was bait, Melissa, and you took it hook, line and sinker.

    You still ahve a chance to make peace. Why don't you take it? Or, would that go against your image and nature?

    I will be away this weekend. I look forward to chatting again on Monday. Have a great weekend.

    John Johnsen

  • At 7:51 AM, Blogger Melissa said…

    No, you made a declarative statement that included a direct threat to expose information you said you have. And I quote:

    "Ten days, then if you haven't complied I play the one thing I know will get your attention."

    And then you said:

    "are you going to tell your listners and readers why you ran from Washington State to start a new life in Texas? Would you like me to?"

    When are you going to release whatever it is?? I'm not posting an apology -- EVER !!!! You threw yourself into yet another half baked idea. You couldnt wait to get that idea discussed on Cryptomundo. Now, you think you are above criticism from those in the community who think this half baked idea is a pile of crap.

    Publish whatever you want. I could careless what you do. NOBODY listens to you anymore anyway. Knock yourself out. Like I said, just PLEASE spell my name right. :)

    I am glad you did this (yet again), it gives people a chance to see the person you really are, when your not being nice for DVD sales.

    P.S. My dad is a avid reader of my blog, and I have his full support :)

    For Jiminy Cricket's sake.

    Johnson has gone off the charts now, as far as I am concerned. Not that I would listen to anything that he has to say before this series of comments, but now that that he has confessed to using mis-information (yea, right) nothing he says can be believed.

    Didn't I read somewhere that he is 62 years old? Has he forgotten how to add and subtract. However old he is, he is old enough to know better than to be behaving like this.

    Obviously his daddy didn't take him to the woodshed enough since throwing a tantrum like this would have caused him to end up there. He
    may have gotten away with it too many times.

    This, along with his other rantings elsewhere, I don't care to see anything else from him or grumble films at all.030105030105

    Has this Johnsen character had his rabies shots? Or perhaps he should hone his teeth so his likeness to reptiles is less ambiguous.

    In any case, his use of the dramatic "ticking clock" is pretentious and childish. If he has something of substance to add, let his add it and quit with the dramatics. His brand of blog contributions belong on the "9/11 was an inside job" web sites, not here.

  • At 11:04 AM, Blogger redbud said…

    Could someone point me to a link where I can read for myself the heinous Melissa misdeeds that have caused Johnsen such umbrage? Not vague juvenile accusations from the likes of Johnsen. If Melissa has nothing to hide, this shouldn't be a problem.

    Is this all really just continuing fallout from the friends of MK Davis over the way he was made to look so bad in the wake of revelations that he used images without permission in creating his stabilization, as was made public on Melissa's blog? That's my bet.

    Anyway, I've listened to the two "Grey Area" programs and thought they were fine. At least you guys don't swallow every dumb story that comes down the pike. As you continue to receive negative reviews from the likes of Johnsen and others whose comments I've seen, that only means you're doing something right.

  • At 11:37 AM, Blogger Melissa said…

    Me thinks redbud is onto something..

    Redbud, thank you for your kind remarks in reference to the show I Co-Host with Monica Rawlins. I hope our show "shakes up" this community and gets people to think. If we anger a few along the way, well it's about time.

    Thank you all for the kind comments - and words of support !!!!


  • At 11:39 AM, Blogger Melissa said…

    Again, I am posting this here to keep the comments by Mr. Johnsen in one central location.


    Please remove the block from my email and send me a message at when you have done so. It would really be in your best interest to do so.

    John Johnsen

  • At 11:42 AM, Blogger Melissa said…

    And here is my response to Mr. Johnsen.

    Mr. Johnsen, your harrassment via my email stopped when I blocked you a year ago. AINT HAPPENING AGAIN. If your so proud of the way you conduct yourself, then lets see it in public.

    I know why you want to email me, so you can post your stupid ( and worthless) confidentiality statement. If your corresponding here, your contact complaint that your comments are being taken out of context are null - and this way you can't play the bleeding heart victim you enjoy so much. I guess you could say I am making you take responsibility for your actions and comments.

    It would be in your best interest to do what every one of these comments say - go away, mind your own business, stop harrassing researchers and being a general nusiance. If you have a talent to share, by all means do so, BUT the harrassment stops.

    I find it unfortunate so much time is taken up by these petty school yard bulling tatics.

    Change your tatics and how you handle people and maybe one day you will get my email address, but not now, no way.

    It says a lot that I havent blocked Eric Beckjord, and you are. At least Mr. Beckjord knows when enough is enough. How funny is that.
