Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

I suppose Graham is somewhat constrained in what he's allowed to do, with regards the world cup. Think yourself lucky; I seem to besurrounded by World Cup obsessives, and motorway travel (of which I doentirely too much; on the order of 500 miles per week) is now fraughtwith the danger of flags detaching themselves from cars.

See you at the Weird Weekend, anyway.

What is the World Cup? Is it connected with some kind of sport?

I think it is something to do with that 'foot the ball' game that people who like to drink beer on sofas are so interested in these days. I don't know all that much about it other than what I've seen in adverts and such like... Apparently players of 'foot the ball' spend all their time shaving, drinking Pepsi and eating at McDonalds.
