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...

As eagle-eyed readers will know, Graham is off today on his annual holiday - following his favourite band Hawkwind on their annual winter tour. Well, I was trawling through YouTube, looking for a suitable Hawkwind video to embed so that everyone could see where Graham was going, when I found this:

That has to be the best thing I have seen all week...

Bloody hellfire!

They do a pretty good job on it, really. Of course, I prefer the "real deal" and I saw them last night in Bristol. I'm now in Camden (London), awaiting the Hawkwind show there.

Sirens and traffic outside my hotel make a strange contrast to life in Woolsery, but I've got my hotel window open so that I can savour it to the full!
