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

And so another week begins. It is grey, close and muggy, and certainly doesn't feel like it is the beginning of July. However we have an exciting week ahead - Michael Des Barres' album 'Carnaby Street' is released tomorrow, and it is also my wife's birthday. How much more excitement can we stand?

On with the show:

I have to admit that I had not heard of these guys before I received a brief and to the point email from the Gonzo grande fromage with this newsletter attached. But after posting this exciting news I checked them out, and they are a bloody good band...

Today we have a real exclusive for you - a rehearsal btape from last week's benefit concert featuring Michael Des Barres. The tape features 'You're my Pain Killer'augmented by female backing cocals and a bitching horn section. It doesn't get much better than this.

Here, culture lovers, is a link to a good review of the new album by Martin Stephenson, who is one of music's all round nice guys. I think his new album 'California Star' is a cracker. So, obviously, does this reviewer so I strongly suggest you go out and buy a copy. You know it makes sense!

A forthcoming concert by two of the foremost rock music instrumentalists of the past half century - Rick Wakeman and Stewart Copeland come together at the Royal Academy of Music. Golly.

You may or may not have noticed, but Liz from Auburn and I have been conversing through the medium of rhyme over the last few weeks. It keeps us amused, and gives me a welcome excuse to publicise her fantastic album 'Indian Summer'...

And that is it for today. I will be back - God willing - tomorrow.
