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

Good Morning Gonzo Readers dear
I promised you poetry in motion here
I didn't get to sleep until half past five
and my brain seems only just alive
I was driving round the country lanes all night cos my mate Matthew's van is a hunk of shite
and I had to drive a rescue mission
so forgive whatever rhymes are missin'

Annie Haslam is a talented girl,
with one of the best bands in the prog rock world
and here we have an interview
posted nicely from me to you
http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/link-very-insightful-annie-haslam_18.html

An interview with the cool Marquis
presented here for all to see
His new LP is really neat
and it is called Carnaby Street
http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/michael-des-barres-uk-review.html

A new song here from Mimi Page,
one of her best tunes in an age
it even has a video
here we are and here we go
http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/mimi-page-dovahkiin.html

And here we have some proper verse
which really does make mine seem worse
who'se it from (wouldn't you know it?)
a poem from Thom the World Poet
http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/thom-world-poet-daily-poem_18.html

Rick Wakeman can't half play the keys
and composes lotsa songs that please
but he's also a far out bloke man
he's a great cats protection league spokesman
http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/link-rick-wakeman-does-cats.html

And last but not least, can you guess?
Its an interview with the guys from Yes
with something that excited me
some news about their new LP
http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/link-yes-new-studio-album-in-2013-not.html

And I think I deserve a medal for having written this after two hours sleep...

On this day in 1612 three women from the Lancashire village of Samlesbury were put on trial for witchcraft due to the accusation of one 14 year old girl. The case collapsed leading to the aquittal of all the accused.

New on Cedar and Willow:

A couple of articles slated at both of the Frontiers groups have been delayed by weekend bugs on blogger,and it seems to be the worst time of the week for bugs. At least two blog entries should be ready for Monday morning. Surly comments from drunken Saturday-night comments-posters are not making things go any faster (There have been good comments too and you know I am not complaining about them! But it seems every Friday or Saturday night some fool gets drunk and then thinks he can show off by making smartass remarks on my blogs. Anonymously, of course. Which they should know is just not going to get them anywhere.)

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

On this day in 1783 a huge fireball meteor was seen over the east coast of England.
And now the news:
The incident was recreated by Arthur Brown and his crazy world:
