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...

CRYPTO CULTURE: A new song about the chupacabras



Syd said...

Can someone tell me how to recover a totally wasted 2 minutes 53 seconds of my life ???
This is NOT a song about the Chupacabra. It is not even a song, as normal people may understand the term. It is the sound of a brain dead ape repeating just one word, five times over a 2 minute 53 second time period, accompanied by a noise considerably less tuneful than a pneumatic drill.
If by chance a creature known as the Chupacabra exists, I feel quite confident that its ability to write and perform a song, would be substantially greater than that of Jim Bergman.

Oh dear Syd. Posting music that I know will hate is one of the things that makes my day slightly easier to deal with...
