Thomsquatch Television

The thomdoggie speaks of sasquatch at the University of Oregon

     I gave a talk last November at the University of Oregon that attempted to cover the current state of the sasquatch research game in a lecture that did not hurt to listen to. I'm not sure whether I succeeded.  It seems a little self-important to be sticking videos of myself on my own blog, but at least it is very well produced by the Uof O people who made the video. It runs for an hour which was painfully long to for me to try and watch all over again, but then I always seem to know what the guy on the TV is going to say next.  That also meant  none of the jokes were funny. Maybe they just aren't.  You be the judge.
      Or, maybe you just want to listen to the audio feed in the background while you do something else on your computer. Maybe you just want to skip the whole thing. I dunno. The introduction is also too long, but I couldn't figure out how to zoom past it and get right to the talk. There is a similar talk out there in cyberspace of a talk I did in Oklahoma.  That talk goes in a different direction but it is still so similar so if you already watched that, you can take a pass on this one.

Oh, well, one advantage of watching the whole thing is you can skip my future public appearances in favor of something more important, like organizing your sock drawer. . 
     I was kind of hoping that the Universtiy of Oregon would never get around to posting this, so I could give the same talk this year at the Oregon Sasquatch Symposium.  This video talk was a lot of work to put together so I was hoping to get more mileage out of it in the future. . Dang! Now it's available free to anyone with a computer and a comfortable chair, which means I have to make another one for Toby's conference this June.
     Anyway, here is the link, courtesy of Toby Johnson at the Oregon Sasquatch Symposium and The University of Oregon.  Get a pillow. Don't say I didn't warn you:

  1. Hey Thom,

    Well unfortunately I can't even watch the video. Each time I try to play it or download it, it just seems to cause my browser to stall up and I have to force quit. I wonder if others are having the same problem? I tried going directly to the University link but same thing happens.

    Dang, I wasn't able to make it there and now I can't watch the vid either. :(
