…as though Ed Wood Jr. had attempted to film a script by Thomas Pynchon about a script Pynchon secretly wrote to be adapted by Wood. — J. Hoberman Village Voice

Unrelentingly lurid and equally hilarious, Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America might be an X-ray of a rabid slacker’s seething brain… 48-minute[s]… of underground agitprop.

This nutty little item suggests that conspiracy thinking is a Frankenstein monster which inevitably destroys its creator (First you have the conspiracy theory, and then the conspiracy theory has you).

Categorized under: why is it doing that?  Remember that story back in 2002 where a coyote hopped on a commuter train in Portland?  Now they’re evolving! Growing and adapting to their new environs.

PORTLAND, OR — Authorities reported on Wednesday that a wild coyote was chased off the tarmac at Portland International Airport. The traveling prairie pooch, realizing that it wasn’t welcome to fly the friendly skies, proceeded to the Tri-Met Airport Terminal Station where it boarded the light-rail train bound for downtown.

After being refused airport service, traveling canine "Wiley" decided to take the Red Line train bound for downtown Portland.

The big bad coyote…er a make that a coywolf?  Coyotes and wolves, are mixing it up in the Eastern US–hybridizing themselves into a new species–punctuated evolution style.  “Word up dog!”

…mixing of coyote and wolf genes allowed the animal to rapidly evolve larger, more powerful jaws, better adapted to preying on whitetail deer.

“Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”  –- Indiana Jones,  Raiders of the Lost Ark [1981]

Perhaps, because I was tought it wrong, I always believed that the biblical story of the woman and the snake went something like this: “..and the heel of the woman shall bruise the head of the serpent,” but after some research, I learned, that’s incorrect.

The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”

The Mother, the Child, and the Serpent

Caravaggio's Madonna dei Palafrenieri, first exhibited in Saint Peter's Basilica in 1606

So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God…

SERPENT

Except, in this modern version of the story, it is the woman who does the damage, after all.

…elderly Chinese woman who discovered a snake with a clawed hand protruding from its body was so scared she beat it to death… “I turned on the light and saw this monster working its way along the wall using his claw.” …then grabbed a shoe and beat the snake…

Montauk Monster?

Montauk Monster?

last updated:  June 2nd, 2010

…salvaged from the wreck of YAHOO 360.

Call it, ‘now, I’m really confused’ or ‘that fly on the hip thing’ –take your pick at the title ya like best! Taking another look at the original pictures, I notice a big fly (what we all here in Texas call a ‘horse fly’) on the rump of the beastie. Could be just the icing on the cake or the real thing, don’t know, (I’m conflicted, as usual) but the fly does add realism to the overall story. Still, if I was makin’ a movie prop beastie, adding ‘a fake fly to top it all of, seems reasonable.

Waiter! There's a fly on my monster.

Waiter! There

The saga of the so-called Montauk Monster appears to have taken another bizarre turn, this time toward Hollywood…movie production crew claiming…carcass.

And then there’s the little detail that all these stories are coming outta ‘Fixed News‘ –making’ it even more dubious.

Jenna Hewitt's photo of the corpse, revealed to the Internet on 29 July.

Montauk Monster goes all Hollywood

New eye-witness reports seem to corroborate the claim that the creature was in fact a ‘living thing’ once, perhaps a raccoon. Speculation was the ‘beastie’ was actually a model created by clever craftsmen, possibly in the hope it’s discovery would lead to the story going viral, for some feature film promotion.

Alas, the facts, as we see them on the ground are:

Looks as though it’s a (was a) dog or a raccoon!
A boy.
Ferrel.
Poor critter.
lots of  ‘eew,‘  gross photos of a carcass; that looks more domestic than exotic, a bloated dog, not the ‘Hound from Hell.’

Seen envivo.

It looked about the size of an average fox, gray in color, eyes like a mole, hairless and was breathing quite heavily,” he wrote, “needless to say we were freaked out by this discovery and fled the area quickly.

Theorised by some to be a raccoon

Eric Striffler, gets the scoop — watch out, Current TV.

Strange Creature Found In Panama. This Thing Is SCARY! Eric Striffler adds this update to his Youtube video.

This being said, Montauk, has been a birth place of many a mythic and mysterious monster. The survivors of the ‘Philadelphia Experiment,’ or so the story goes, re-grouped there, to carry out their experiments in the seclusion of the island. One need only do a GOOGLE search on Montauk to find just how weird a place it is. So, it should come as no surprise, strange things wash up on the beaches of Montauk, Long Island, from time to time.

The Montauk Project, was alleged to be a series of secret United States government projects, conducted at Camp Hero or Montauk Air Force Station on Montauk, Long Island, for the purpose of developing psychological warfare‘ techniques and exotic research including time travel. People had their psychic abilities enhanced… they could materialize objects out of thin air… An alien, supposedly designed a chair, [in]which an individual could sit to boost his mental and precipatory powers.

What could be more fabulously outrageous than the idea that your tax dollars have subsidized the demented experiments of an evil cabal of Navy brass, CIA shrinks, fugitive Nazis and Reptoid ETs? What could be more fantastic; than viewing them, pow-wow together, for a little high-tech, tantric voodoo?

How very spicy, that this panoply of government geeks and their alien pals, fired up inter-dimensional vortexes by means of a buff, naked dude who was ‘jacked‘ into a psychotronic chair — while sporting a raging boner!

Whatever it was, where ever it came from, however you project your beliefs about the structure of the universe, seeing isn’t always believing, and believing what you see, isn’t always the way to know what’s behind the darkened ‘vale of reality.’
