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...

HAUNTED SKIES: 1977 Letter from Arthur Shuttlewood


I'M THE GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN


So the Jubilee weekend is over, and Britain slowly returns to normality. Except here at the Gonzo Daily offices where this IS normal.

Today we have some smashing stuff for you, starting off with a new Mimi Page video for 'Shotgun Radio feat. Mimi Page - A Bad Place (Mimi Page Acoustic Remix)':

We also have a review of Galahad's new album which really encapsulates what a cracking band they are:

A slight digression - each month I do a webTV show called 'On The Track'/ Episode 58 is up today, and I thought you might like to see it:

Yesterday Billy at Glass Onyon sent me a link to a smashing Jon Anderson interview:

At the Gonzo Daily offices (which are still a converted potato shed full of fish tanks) we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Captain Beefheart volume in the 'Lost Broadcasts' series. In the meantime feast yer eyes on this:

We have a slightly puzzling French review of 'Genre Peak' which I am including because I honestly can't make out whether he likes the record or not. I do, and it gives me another chance to plug it on these hallowed pages:

And finally, Benjamin Britten would be a century old now, so Tony Palmer presents a box set of his Britten movies:

We will be back with more massively groovy postings tomorrow.
