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 THE GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN


It is a glorious sunny day, the birds are singing, Graham is outside filming a female Harvest mouse, I am eagerly awaiting the new album by PiL, and I have a sneaking suspicion that my lovely wife is going to make an apple cake later. God is in his heaven and all is right with the world.

Today on Gonzo Daily, we have all sorts of nice things.

First of all we have a real exclusive - part one of an interview with Galahad:

Auburn have recently finished a short tour. We have an interview with Liz Lenten any day now, but in the meantime some smashing film of one of the soundchecks:

And a review of an absolutely cracking DVD documentary about The Beatles' Apple Records from those jolly nice people at Chrome Dreams/Sexy Intellectual:

On this day in 1812 the poet Edward Lear was born.

And now the news:

My favourite Lear poem; the epic tale of adventure, exploration and derring-do that is “The Jumblies”:

THE RAREST OWLS IN THE LAND?

LARS THOMAS RESCUES A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

The other night one of Lars Thomas' neighbours needed the services of a cryptozoologist - she needed rescuing from a fearsome beast.

Was it a dragon? a manbeast? a chupacabras?

Nope. It was a small bat...

...but Lars did his duty.
