I Saw Bigfoot Zombie.

Hi my name is Janet. I’m a performance artist whose work is committed to give Native Americans the voice they deserve. I find it frustrating though because many Americans are not open to hearing the truth about Native Americans.

And yes, I saw Bigfoot Zombie. I was walking in Inwood Hill Park. For those of you who don’t know this park, it is located in a section of Manhattan, NY just north of Washington Heights named Inwood. It has a park where allegedly Native Americans sold to a traveler (for some beads), what was later to become New York City.

Yet another example of a suppression of Native Americans. I was thinking this as I walked to the cement block in the park that is supposedly located at the exact spot where the sale was made all those years ago.  It was starting to get dark and there was no one around most likely because of COVID-19.

Suddenly I heard a gravelly  male voice saying:

“Yes, the exact spot. Not such a great deal for the Native Americans.”

Without turning around my first thought was that this could be a dangerous man. I knew I had to be careful and sometimes the best way to be safe is to engage in a soft and mellow conversation.

I pivoted slowly and found myself face to face with Bigfoot Zombie wearing a medical mask as I was. He spoke.

“Good evening. You can believe that I will keep the 6 foot of distance from you. I hope I didn’t frighten you.”

I responded.

“Not at all. I’m a big fan.”

“I’m glad to hear that. I think it is deplorable the way the Native Americans have been treated over the years.”

“I agree with you Mr. Bigfoot Zombie.”

“Call me BFZ.”

And then BFZ and I engaged in a thoughtful and exciting conversation about the plight of Native Americans. And I must admit I got some great ideas for my next performance art piece.

 

 

How to BigFoot Zombie Become So Darn Popular?

Some say achieving fame is like trying to find your way out of the cold with no clearly marked signs so you are unsure of which way to go.

Gaining popularity is  not an easy task as a human. So think about how difficult it is for a big scraggly creature who feels the need to keep the legend going in a challenging new world!

We interviewed Big Foot Zombie for this post. Asking him if he had any tips for marketing for not just monsters, but also for humans. That interview was then condensed to this one drawing from the big dude interview into an all out beginner’s marketing course. Additionally, BFZ often lapsed into talking about fundraising and money as being necessary. Yes, even legendary beasts need the stock market now and then.

In short, sometimes the sign or method to get out of the freezing temperature is marketing. Why marketing? Because marketing, especially online marketing, can create a kind of pathway to get warm again.

Follow Your Gut if You Have a Gut Worth Following

Why online marketing? Because it gets you thinking about the presentation you will make when you need to enter certain doors. But more on marketing in just a moment, first we are going to take a look at investing. Yes, it’s true, aggressively working the market alone can be your way to achieve being a billionaire. But just investing sometimes is not enough to keep it interesting. You want to have fun in your climb to the top, don’t you? That is where marketing comes in. Even in your stocks action you can involve promotion.

A Way of Looking at Getting Prominence

Ever notice there are some billionaires who are better known than others? That is no accident, because those figures are having a good time with their ascending process financially. The fact you are reading this now signals that you are at least partially interested in promoting yourself. Why? Because this guide involves marketing and marketing can often mean self-promoting. Promoting yourself with online marketing and any other technology that is coming in the future, can assist you with your investing.

People Will Treat You Differently if You are a Celeb

There are pros and cons regarding pushing the fame button. On the one hand doors will open to you if you are well known, but on the other hand if the camera is on you when you blunder, it is going to be magnified.

 

He’s Elusive but Wants to be Marketed

It’s a little known fact that BigFootZombie had this site created by us because he wanted to get into “this website thing.”  The big guy contacted us recently by bird messenger saying he wanted to make a video. We at Home Business Achievers are not in the position right now to be doing things at no cost, so instead we created this video tutorial for him hoping he sees it from where ever he is. Here it is:

Another thing to keep in mind is that your video could be one of the first things they see on your site. This means that its script should make it clear to the viewer who you are and what you can do for them by either curing their disease or giving them hope.

Another consideration is that approximately 50% of your viewers will be watching your video on their phone, so it is important that you keep images and text in your video of a large size. This means that phone users will be able to better see what you have created for them.

As mentioned you can do this yourself on a video creation site or you can have someone else make it for you which is even better because it means of course that you are delegating and not weighing yourself down with monotonous tasks that waste your time. Additionally, you must be certain to end your video with a call to action or CTA. In other words, you must tell them the next steps they need to take to get what you are offering. At Home Business Achievers we have literally done hundreds of videos, many times for clients who are very well known. And each had its own unique CTA because each client had a different kind of offer to their viewers depending on who those viewers were.

CTAs can include having people subscribe to your newsletter and/or something that gives them an action to take right now in terms of buying from you immediately. If your service is digital such as an eBook PDF, MP4 video or Audio MP3 all the better. Why? Because they can buy from you what you have for them immediately. Your system can, after their purchase, digitally be downloaded by them, thereby requiring no follow up on you part.

Another Interview Attempt

We received a lot of worried emails from last month’s interview with the big guy himself. The thing that people seemed the most upset about is the BFZ (Big Foot Zombie” made the statement there were more like him and together they would all eat up the entire human race (admittedly we are exaggerating a bit.”

Throughout the end of July and early August we tried desperately to get another interview with Mr. BigFootZombie. I think his name is Gerald actually, much like the national commercial that is currently running. If you’ve seen the spot, you know what we’re talking about.

I did finally get Gerald to agree to the interview as long as I brought along the salt and pepper because he’s running low himself. I don’t quite know what he means by this?

Gerald did finally show up. He grabbed the salt and pepper from me, and I have to admit, I was terrified. Or should I say AM terrified because I am writing this as I get dirty looks from Gerald. I…

Editor’s Note. We are sorry to inform you that our Head Interviewer was eaten in the line of duty. We appreciate his tenacity over the years…What the…Gerald is that you? If so I…

(FADE OUT as sounds of munching prevail).

Big Foot Zombie Agrees to an Interview

Although this looks more like a kid’s toy than the real McCoy, there’s no question we had the actual leader of the Big Foot Zombies in our studio.

History in the Making?

We are as thrilled as can be, because Big Foot Zombie has agreed to an interview. This is the first comprehensive  talk with the hairy guy that although short is still history in the making.

Snacks

This interview was made possible by the nice people at DIYdigi who were able to present BFZ with an offer he couldn’t refuse: a full year’s worth vegan snacks.

An Important Chat

He had been eating folks up until around 10 years ago and went from  vegetarian to actually closing out all dairy products. How he managed getting this food we may never know but we are thankful for his coming to chat with us today.

DIYdigi:
First off, thanks for agreeing to communicate with us.

BFZ:
Grrr. No problem.

DIYdigi:
What gets you up in the morning my friend. What is your big dream?

BFZ:
Grrr. To make the world just a little bit better. Grrr.

DIYdigi:
How do you see that happening?

BFZ:
Grrr. By eating all people.

DIYdigi:
Our information was that you are now a vegan.

BFZ:
You humans are messing things up royally. Both sides of the aisle. So you all need to be taken out. There are more of my Big Foot Zombie brothers and sisters than you could ever imagine. Eating all of you would probably only take us a year or two. Grrr.

DIYdigi’s spokesperson runs out of the room at this point and BFZ feasts on the sound recordist.

Bigfoot Zombie Turns Down a Deal

Seeking Relaxation

BigFoot Zombie, who is ancient enough to have encountered the evolution of many media types, has finally found a mission: audio cassettes. Some of you will not even know what an audio cassette is. Let’s put it this way, it predates digital music. BFZ became entranced with audio cassettes when he unraveled the tape of one and found it to be as relaxing as his Greek worry beads.

Possible Deal

BigFoot Zombie has contacted some of the major digital music outlets to pitch to them bringing back cassettes or at least 8-track tapes. But thus far he as had no response from music moguls other than being offered by one of them a possible spokesperson deal.

Why He Turned it Down

Avocado Toast Records wanted to land BigFoot Zombie because of his appeal to Millennials. They had a campaign in mind featuring the big furry one selling their tunes using his “monster” appeal. BFZ didn’t turned down the deal because he didn’t want to be objectified.

BigFoot Zombie Meets the Martian

Sasquatch Undead

We never thought we’d see the day, but now we have. BigFoot Zombie has met a Martian. And now all of us are checking out this One Eyed Fellow to make certain our beloved BFZ has found a friend worth having.

Friend or Foe?

We got Frank to check out BigFoot Zombie’s pal. He even put on a suit when he went to check out the being from outer space. The Martian  did start with the ice breaker of saying “Nice tie.” He got points for this because that blue tie is the favorite of our interrogator. But as the discussion continued between the two of them, things began to shift in terms of the interrogated that might not make him best suited to be a comrade of our B.F.B.F.Z. (Best Friend BigFoot Zombie).

Pass the Salt Please

The Martian began to criticize our dear Meh-Teh saying that he was messy when he eats. Now don’t get us wrong, Yeti does devour his grub in an off-putting way, but if you knew him you’d know he has tried to have better manners.

BigFootZombie is Plastic

Coronavirus Episode

Look, we’re not trying to pass this plastic BigFootZombie as the real BigFootZombie, nothing could be further from the truth. We are merely using it as a demonstration of what’s been happening lately with the big hairy one now that we are living through a Coronavirus episode.

Medical Masks On

You see BFZ is affected by it too. Case in point we were unable to get him to pose for us for this photo. He is currently in Inwood Hill Park in a tree filled area with his medical mask in place. We have our medical masks on also just out of view from the camera frame.

Be Safe

So what’s the point of this photo of a plastic BigFootZombie in the park?  We’re letting you know that no one is safe from COVID-19 so please be responsible and safe.

Running Away From BigFoot Zombie?

Needs of Our World

For starters, we are NOT running away from BigFoot Zombie. BFZ is as important to us as always for the good work he does keeping folklore alive. We need myths in this world. They keep the imagination alive and we can never have enough of that in this world.

The Value of Leaps of Faith

Imagination and creativity fuels the planet. It give people hope and faith. It keeps us being able to take leaps of faith. It is highly valued.

Making a Difference

So Mr. Sasquatch Undead. Wherever you are at this moment please keep doing what you are doing making a difference in our national and international communities. And please take it to hear, we are NOT running away from you.

John Yianni Stamas has been Busy on a Project and is NOT Ignoring B.F.Z.

Yes, you’re seeing what you might be thinking you’re seeing above. It’s an artist’s rendering of Big foot Zombie splitting into a rainbow which happens when BFZ is very upset. The symbolism of the rainbow is that it represents all the various colors of Big Foot Zombie’s emotions. The source of his sad mood is that he believes that John Yianni Stamas, inventor of the Big Foot Zombie character, has been ignoring him lately, After all, the last post on this blog was on October 5th, approximately six months ago.

When asked for a comment, Mr. Stamas assured BFZ Magazine and Blog that nothing could be further from the truth. Big Foot Zombie is always on his mind. It’s just that he has been consumed with a new website he has been creating entitled USA How To. USAhowto.com is the organization that John Yianni Stamas founded to help media freelancers to find work. He has asked Big Foot Zombie to not move from the Bronx where he resides at Pelham Bay Park, which is the largest park in New York City at 2,765 acres in size. Stamas and Big Foot Zombie have a special area of the park where they meet. John says he is going to the park today anyway to write an article for Bronx News NYC. Mr. Zombie was not available for comment because today he is dead to the world.
