I have spent the last few weeks thinking hard about what direction I am headed in. Do I start hyping things up like I used to or continue on the straight and narrow? It seems that as Bigfoot becomes more a part of pop culture, there are more people getting involved, and making videos. That is my dilemma ...they are ALL. hoaxing.
I know to many, that is an odd stance for me to take, but it really is not so strange. Contrary to popular belief, I am not the king of hoaxing. Daily, YouTube is full of videos that are an absolute joke (hoax). These guys take the crown. But, these people get noticed, and are encouraged to continue hoaxing (posting).
I have put in a tremendous amount of work over the last few years and I'm very proud of what I have accomplished. I am now working with a group of paranormal guys who play it straight and I would not want it any other way. There is much more to do in this field. However, I can't find Bigfoot every time I go out. Thats the problem.
Everyone seems to be competing with everyone else. Hence, there is pressure to hoax. Everyone seems to be doing that. Did you ever think you would see the day when Tim Fasano was the only one playing it straight! And he would be worried about it.
That is why most of my efforts are on my blogs. I post private videos on the Seminole project that you can't find on YouTube. I just don't want to be part of the freak show anymore.
