Shawn Robbins, psychic, author and mail-order entrepreneur, has turned her big hazel eyes toward Wall Street since the stock market has become so volatile. A shaky market is good for people in her line of work, she says. "For psychics," she says, "the market is boring when it's good, but now is the chance to really shine with psychic abilities. This is a good time to go to a 'reputable psychic.' "Be careful, though. This is not the time to go to Madame Ripoff on the corner with your portfolio.

A large room off the bar of Malibu's Trancas Restaurant is turned over most evenings to hairy creatures who stomp to rhythmic beats in a ritual faintly resembling those of anthropoids before a hunt. They are called dancers. They boogie to . . . well . . . music performed by groups like Jack Mack and the Heartattacks and drink an intoxicant identified as Corona beer.
Talk about boogie nights. . . . (Marky) Mark Wahlberg and Vince Vaughn almost got mowed down in front of the Bigfoot Lodge last week. Word has it that the two actors got into a pushing match at the Atwater Village bar with some local yokels, who hopped into a car and tried to drive up the sidewalk, aiming for 'em. The Lodge's doorman flexed his flashlight at the car, saving los amigos.
Over the years, Grover Krantz would sometimes climb into his car at night and go for long, lonely rides into the woods of the Pacific Northwest. Creeping along the back roads at 25 mph with a rifle and spotlight at his side, he desperately hoped his elusive quarry, a sasquatch, would show itself. But it never did. Not once in more than 30 years of looking. Krantz, considered one of the world's foremost authorities on the supposed apelike denizen of the Northwest's forests, died Feb.

We are driving up Big Tujunga Canyon Road into the San Gabriel Mountains when my wife says, "I don't believe this. A beautiful Sunday ahead of us and you are taking us on a search for Bigfoot ?" "It'll only take a couple of hours," I say, "and then we'll go out for a nice lunch." "We're liable to be dead by lunch," she says. We pass the last few homes along the roadside, then a Little League field, a juvenile detention camp and a man walking his goose. "Did you see that?" she says.

OK, enough with the grainy footage, the first-person accounts and questionable evidence. Spike TV is looking to get to the bottom of this whole Bigfoot mystery once and for all with its next reality competition series, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty. " Not surprisingly, the series, which premieres Jan. 10, hasn't attracted a whole lot of what you would call studious, academic types. Instead, you get a whole lot of angry, sexist rednecks yelling at each other in the woods. What better way to attract a notoriously camera-shy, quite probably mythical creature, than to have a bunch of people arguing in the woods?

Full disclosure: I am no Bigfoot junkie. In fact, before strapping my mom, my 3-year-old and myself in the car and traveling north on U.S. 101 to Arcata, Calif., then swinging east on California 299 to the blink-and-you'll-miss-it town of Willow Creek, I believed all things Sasquatch were laughable at best. I knew that lots of honest folks did believe that Bigfoot or Sasquatch or, as crypto-zoologists call him, Gigantopithecus , not only exists but also thrives in Klamath River country between the Humboldt County coast and the Shasta Cascade.
