Did You Have the Courage to Attend?!

Were you at this unusual New York City  event? If this is the case and you didn’t lose your mind (and haven’t been institutionalized and put in a padded cell due to the odd things you witnessed)  we’d love to hear from you by leaving a message at the nonprofit sponsored Lights Camera Read website IF YOU DARE!

Brace Yourself for a Bizarre, Twisted and Utterly Weird Tale

Welcome Stamas Bros fans and lovers of the unearthly, coming your way is a story, so strange and out of the ordinary that we encourage you to turn back and not read the following unless you are utterly sure you can handle freaky and peculiar anecdotes so astonishing you could find yourself going…Well, going INSANE!

So if you’re still reading this, we’ve done our due diligence  and warned you so you are now proceeding of your own volition and curiosity of bugged out narratives!

It’s Important to Pronounce People’s Names Correctly

Web Designer, Digital Marketer and Blogger John Yianni Stamas has the last name “Stamas” and according to the audio recording at HowToPronounce.com he pronounces it correctly ([American] S-ta-mas, [British] Sta-mas). This fact pleases the event organizers who are none other than the wacky and beloved Stamas Bros – consisting of Stamas Bro Homer and Stamas Bro Aristotle – who experience deep anxiety when folks mispronounce their surname.

Event Coordinators Get Extra Support

So for extra support the Stamas Bros invite John Yianni Stamas to their NON-Mythical Monster Event for real monsters everywhere including the Abominable Snowman (Yeti was packed in ice) and the Loch Ness Monster (via Skype) as well as human monster adorers like the Manhattan Magician and folks from Harry Potter Fan Club NYC.

The affair was created by the Stamas Bros to clear up the myth that monsters are a mere figment of our imaginations. In other words monsters have the right to actually EXIST too!

The Madness Inducing Conference Goes Really Really Well (if You Consider things that are Maniacal and Spine Chilling as Going Well)

Here’s the kooky and shocking unraveling  as spun by Stamas Bro Aristotle who was shaking a bit as he bravely spoke:

“It was a beautiful and affirming thing to watch humans and monsters finally meeting face to face as brothers and sisters (note: he meant that figuratively not genetically)”

This Just In…Maybe the Happening was Not so Copacetic After All

It turns out there were glitches at the BFZSUNMME!

What the Stamas Bros did not disclose is that there were a lot of monsters, who though invited, chose not to show up. All these creatures are officially sanctuned as FMFATWs (Fearsome Monsters From Around the World) the proof of which can be found at OxfordDictionaries.com.

Oxford Dictionaries’ creature feature line up include Gremlins, Chupacabras, Manticores, Banshees, Poltergeists, Mummies, Krakens, Werewolves, Cerberuses, Succubuses, Incubuses, Cyclopses, Nandi Bears, and yes even Basiliskes (though they prefer the Greek Basiliskos, meaning ‘little king, serpent’). And last but not least, the Jersey Devil. In fact, the Jersey Devil had been selected by all the other creatures to be their spokesperson.

The Jersey Devil Monster is a Friend of BigFootZombie.com
As the ghastly account goes, in 1735 the Jersey Devil was born as a normal child to Mother Leeds who lived near the Jersey Shore. But because it was her THIRTEENTH baby, the infant changed into a creature with hooves and wings and as it flew away it shrilled out with a terrifying voice: “Too bad it’s Monday and not Friday. If it was Friday today it would be a much cooler legend!”

Said JD directly to the Stamas Bros:

“As if it’s not enough to have humiliating Jersey jokes be made about us by you Manhattan-ites, but on top of that you disrespect us by naming your shindig “The BigFoot Zombie and Sasquatch Undead NON-Mythical Monster Event.” We creatures don’t respond kindly to this name because as you know BigFoot Zombie and Sasquatch Undead are merely different monikers for the same beast! Where are our names?! I don’t see any Jersey Devil, or Godzilla or even Dracula – yeah that’s right, he self identifies as a monster too! Frankenstein as well, but then you probably knew that.”

Stamas Bro Homer steps toward JD and speaks to him earnestly while quivering.

Jersey Devil sir.”

“You can call me JD.”

“JD sir, I have only reverence for you and your kind. After all you are a fabled inhabitant of the sparsely-populated Pine Barrens region in the US state of NJ. You are a wonderful kangaroo-like creature with a fantastic horse/dog head, dragon-like wings, a tail, and horns. Plus, you’re so incredibly great that the National Hockey League team based in your state – chose in your honor to call themselves the New Jersey Devils!

JD seems to take well to being buttered up and exclaims with a blood curdling scream:

“Go Devils!”

Stamas Bro Homer, doing his best to not reveal how scared he really is,  continues.

“And since you are so terrific I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive us. We meant no disrespect.”

Stamas Bro Homer looks toward Stamas Bro Aristotle (seen on a laptop screen broadcasting from North Fork, CA, near Fresno). Stamas Bro Aristotle nods in agreement then both Bros look toward the Jersey Devil continuing to nod their heads a bit too much, possibly to cover their fear.

JD hesitates for a moment and then get a big grin.

“Oh okay, if you put it that way I guess we can absolve you just this once. But if you do this get together next year I hope you’ll simply call it “The NON-Mythical Monster Event” not naming any particular member of the horror league.”

“You got it” say the two Stamas Bros in unison.

And so everything ends happily. And again, if you were at this year’s NMME (renamed NON-Mythical Monster Event) please let us know about your experience of it no matter how abnormal, astounding or atypical!

Yianni Stamas is offended that the Stamas Bros are searching for the mythical unicorn and not BigFootZombie

Is this the fabled beast?
Is this the fabled beast?

A riled up Yianni Stamas exclaimed:

“I don’t understand. The website is named BigFoot Zombie and yet the Stamas Bros continue to search for different mythical creatures than that. The NYC Water Dragon in the Harlem River was a recent quest and now an intentionally blurry picture of a so called unicorn. It’s got to stop. Focus on BigFootZombie Stamas Bros, not lizards in water and horses with a horn. It tarnishes the last name “Stamas” for Stamas’ all over the world.”

When asking the Stamas Bros why Yianni (a web designer, digital marketer, blogger and sometime filmmaker, educator and magician) was so insulted by searching for pretend creatures other than just BFZ, the Brothers were silent. Stamas Bro Aristotle refused to answer citing that he was busy on a skiing trip in Aspen and planned to go to Bermuda afterwards. Finally Stamas Bro Homer broke down and responded from the Empire State (New York). He had this to say:

“We (the Stamas Bros) understand Yianni Stamas’ concern. We have not been focused enough as guest bloggers on BigFootZombie.com and are getting kind of off topic. We know this confuses the audience and doesn’t reflect kindly on Stamas’ everywhere. For this reason we have great remorse.”

Just when Yianni Stamas was about to back off from criticising the Stamas Bros for baffling and convoluted messaging regarding fake beings from another dimension, the brothers known as Stamas were allegedly overheard by a private detective who was wiretapping their phones. Stamas Bro Aristotle apparently suggested that the bros go in search of Chimera, a fire-breathing three-headed monster with one head of a lion, one of a snake, and another of a goat, lion claws in front and goat legs behind, and a long snake tail.

Despite the similarities of the photo shown in this blog entry to another well known one of the Loch Ness Monster, the Stamas Bros claim that after much investigative effort they snapped this picture of a creature they call the NYC Water Dragon in the Harlem River. Says Stamas Bro Homer:

“Sure it looks a lot like the Nessie image taken in Scotland, but we were staked out for hours to get this snapshot in the Inwood Manhattan water area. Ironically, we next intend to try to catch an image of Scotland’s National Animal, the unicorn. But the unicorn we are seeking is one that was first spotted in Inwood Hill Park.”
