Summer Meme-Watch '08: Cryptids

Saturday, August 16, 2008

Cryptid sightings are up this year, with recent news of quite a few unknown beasties...

Also, these major summer films synch with Cryptids:

  • Hellboy II: The Golden Army has more cryptids than you can shake a stick at.

  • The Dark Knight, notably the biggest summer blockbuster of '08, revolves around Batman, a cryptid name if I ever heard one. Also, synchromystic bloggers have pointed out a joke early on in the film: there is a photo of the famous Patterson-Gimlin bigfoot on the wall of the Gotham Crime Unit, as a potential suspect for the 'real' Batman. (This is a joke becaus the MCU is not making any effort to actually apprehend Batman).

  • The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor features the Yeti (Tibetan bigfoot) and other cryptids.

  • Cloverfield wasn't a summer film as it was released on January 18, 2008, but the main attraction was a huge freaking cryptid terrorizing New York.

Excerpt from a related post on Through the Looking Glass:

The seemingly well coordinated release of "The Dark Knight" and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" have acted as a MIRROR/LOOKING GLASS [see Goro Adachi's current work on this dramatic development to our current state of existence] and could be at the heart of the doubling effects written about by Jake Kotze and others in relation to HH's, MM's and KK's.

Even the British Telegraph online raises an eyebrow:

"The film is either very timely or very canny in its release date. With the world's eyes on Beijing and the Olympics, the producers have managed to hustle as many elements of Chinese culture and history as possible into the story: feng shui, kung fu, mystical ancient knowledge, the Great Wall, terracotta armies, even noodle soup. I'm only surprised the producers didn't try to rope in Jingjing the panda for a cameo."

Consider the appearance of YETI in the new Mummy film, the "supposed" discovery of BIGFOOT in rural North GEORGIA (Not too far from my homebase here in Athens), and the recent invasion of GEORGIA by the Russians.

Bigfoot rears his head in "The Dark Knight" as well...image borrowed from the kids at the Synchromysticism Forum...lots of ongoing independent research happening there all day long it seems.

Also let's not forget that The Cartoon Network recently started showing ads for a new show called 'Cryptids Are Real.'
