Bigfoot Watcher Chasing Chemtrails Records a UFO

According to his commentary during the video (you can watch it here), Marc Abell –the CEO of Colorado Bigfoot, a provider of Bigfoot videos – was recording a plane making a contrail over a snow-covered terrain in Vail, Colorado, and believed the color and shape changes in the contrail were signs that the plane was actually spraying something rather than just trailing the usual water vapor and jet exhaust. To the untrained or disbelieving eye, it looks like just another contrail. However, there’s no mistaking that a white object suddenly appears in the video near the contrail.

“What is that it’s following it? You guys, that is too crazy, what is that?”​

Lost masterpiece found broken in two in gallery storage, after BBC expert identified it from cows' backsides.

lt did not look much like the work of an Old Master: a filthy panel broken clean in two, with much of its subject over-painted or obscured.

But the presence of some cows - specifically, their rear ends - was a clue to the painting’s illustrious history.

The work had languished for decades in a drawer at Birmingham Museum, and attributed to an anonymous artist, when it was spotted by Dr Bendor Grosvenor, art historian and presenter of the BBC series Britain’s Lost Masterpieces.

Inspecting the painting close-up for the programme, he said: “I’m drawn to the cows, particularly the rear ends of them. Now, if there is one artist in particular who loved the back end of a cow, it is Bruegel the Elder.”

Ah yes, to be on the BBC as the "expert in cow backsides"...

Outside my comfort zone.
Actually, it's really really expensive to restore and maintain old and fragile art work. It can be ruinously expensive for small museums to take proper care of the works in storage.

A local police blotter story. Here's a map of the township.

’Bigfoot’ trys to open man’s front door: Bainbridge Township police blotter

https://www.cleveland.com/police-bl...-door-bainbridge-township-police-blotter.html

After hearing gunshots 4:26 a.m. Oct. 22 a resident called police. Officers arrived and questioned a man who admitted to firing warning shots at a seven-foot tall ‘Bigfoot’ creature or bear who he said tried to open his front door and get his dogs. He also said it visits his home every night at about 8 p.m. The subject was deemed to be not intoxicated. Officers could not find any creature foot prints or signs of an animal visit. The man was advised to call police if it returns and advised against firing shots into the air.

Some may say that the British Royal family are a special bunch, however it appears that they are also miraculous, in a spooky kind of way. This headline (outlined) grabbed my attention today whilst surfing through some news stories.

More of a news story than just a headline, Lord Buckethead has rebranded as Count Binface.


Lord Buckethead lost his head due to a copyright claim by the owners of Gremloids. He is now back, as County Binface. However Lord Buckethead has also resurfaced, now with the blessing of the owners of Gremloids. They are now running against each other in the coming election.

https://news.yahoo.com/count-binface-former-lord-buckethead-195923283.html
-----------------------------
Responding to the unlikely re-incarnation of his former identity – whom he will now stand against, Count Binface said: “I look forward to both the hustings and to challenging the new ‘Lord Buckethead’ to take part in a receptacle-to-receptacle debate.”

How Did Johnny Depp Find Himself in a Financial Crisis?
For years, Depp has topped the box office as one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors, yet somehow he’s facing a financial hole. The actor is charging his former business managers, Joel and Robert Mandel, with fraud, while their counterclaim cites his manic spending: the private islands, French château, 156-foot yacht, and much, much more.

It's his money I suppose and 'he can't take it with him'/'a fool and his money is soon parted' .. maybe this was why he did that role in the God awful Yoga Hosers ? .. with his daughter .. this was painful to watch ..

He's on tour with the Hollywood Vampires at the moment.

Alice Cooper, Joe Perry & Johnny Depp.

His project is still mad--do you think they might call it 'Sniff the Glove'?
