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...

TODAY ON THE GONZO BLOG

Saturday morning on the Gonzo blog, and though the weather is cloudy and rather cold here in North Devon, we have lots of shiny happy postings for you....

To celebrate the release of a new DVD documentary by Tony Palmer on the life of legendary violinist Ivry Gitlis, here is an equally legendary clip of yer man himself playing a peculiarly infectious ditty alongside John and Yoko, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Mitch Mitchell from the Jimi Hendrix Experience who went to school with Michael Des Barres:

And talking of Michael Des Barres, here is an exclusive picture of him handing over the album masters to Senor Cheesio-Grande himself. Add to that me whinging about growing old, and you have a perfect way to spend five minutes on a bracing spring lunchtime:

We have a transcendentally good review of Martin Stephenson live in Liverpool:

News on Rick Wakeman's charitable activities:

And whilst on the subject of Rick, here is an exclusive excerpt from his forthcoming biography, which carries on from yesterday's posting and discusses Rick's role on David Bowie's 'Space Oddity':

And an interview with Roy Webber of Wally and Jackson Webber lifted straight off Dutch Radio:
