Seriously. May all the pirates just get eaten by zombies already, 'cause Bigfoot reigns supreme at Green Apple!
If you aren't sold on the majesty of Bigfoot yet, just flip through any of the funny, lovely, and weirdly poignant books from Graham Roumieu. It starts with Bigfoot: In Me Own Words, but Bigfoot: I Not Dead really brings it all home. And don't overlook the fact that there were not just one, but two scholarly tomes on my main man, 'Squatch, released last month. McLeod's Anatomy of a Beast from UC Press focuses on the meteoric rise of the mythology and pop appeal of our shaggy idol, while Bigfoot: The Life and Times of a Legend from the University of Chicago attempts to uncover a more gender-relative sphere of influence. One of my colleagues has written on his shelf-talker for Anatomy of a Beast, "Maybe I'm all alone in this, but I'm doing what I can to make 2009 the Official Year of Bigfoot." Well, at least there are two of us now!
