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...

HASN'T CORINNA DONE WELL

The Daily CFZ Newsblog, started by Gavin Lloyd Wilson some years ago, and run by Corinna for the last year or so, has just reached 8000 posts. Bloody hell!

HAUNTED SKIES: An update


I'M THE GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN



It is a weirdly cold day; although the sun is shining it is very chilly out there, and sadly we have had some fatalities in the animal collection as a result of this unseasonably cold snap. Inside I am listening to Damon Albarn's extraordinary 'Dr Dee' album; an opera about the Elizabethan occultist. Dudes - you have to hear this, it is unbelievably good.

However, the contents of Gonzo Daily today is also unbelievably good. To start off with we have part two of our Erik Norlander interview:

We have a taster for next weekend's Ant-Bee interview:

We have a convoluted pair of book reviews which basically both end up at the door of Michael Des Barres. What an extraordinary man he is:

We have a Belgian review of Galahad:

My old mate Davey Curtis went to see New Order last week and was massively impressed:

And finally, a link to a story about the new Hawkwind album which explains where the word 'Blanga', which is a term I have often heard used by my friend, colleague and housemate Graham Inglis, comes from:

Don't say that we never inform and educate as well as amuse and entertain. Ha! See you tomorrow.

MYSTERY CAT IN COLORADO

Seduced by the North Country's gifts — and then ambushed by its perils
The Keene Sentinel
You can call this wildcat a cougar, lynx, puma, black panther, mountain cat or, as Davidson writes, “catamount,” derived from cat-of-the-mountain, or catamountain. Whatever the name, Colorado may harbor the reclusive, nocturnal, 200-pound pouncing ...
