WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

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'M YER GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN

Today we take Lars Thomas and his son to Taunton so that they can begin their journey back to Denmark. Then we come home, and the madness really is over for another year. Tomorrow is my 53rd Birthday, and after that everything goes back to the nearest thing that we get to normal. Thank you for being forbearing whilst the last few weeks trundled to their conclusion. Normal service will be totally resumed within a couple of days....

A particularly interesting Michael Des Barres interview is the first item of note on today's Gonzo Daily. I have said this before, I know, but I am always impressed by how Michael consistenly says something new and fresh in each interview..

I don't know why I haven't come across 'Fireworks' magazine before. It seems to be a jolly nice little publication with interesting content and nicely sharp writing. Herewith a review of 'Galahad' from the current issue.

I am very pleased to see what a positive reaction the Captain Beefheart 'Lost Broadcasts' DVD is getting. I am really rather impressed by it, and I am glad to see that others are to.

I have been a singer on and off for the past 35 years. You can check me out on spotify if you like. But I have always envied Chris Thompson his wonderful big, soulfull, expressive voice. His new CD/DVD set is fantastic, and it is good to see that I am not the only one that thinks so.

We first posted about Rick Wakeman's planned 2013 revival of his King Arthur show a few months ago. Now the word has spread and even the BBC arts pages have covered the story. So, being the kind of guy that I am, I have pinched this expanded story from the BBC. Check it out... http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/rick-wakeman-king-arthur-june-2013.html

That's it for today guys. See you tomorrow....
