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


And another working week begins. Good morning culture lovers, and welcome to another seven days of massive grooviness on Gonzo Daily.

We start off with a real exclusive - the fourth and final part of our interview with Billy James, the mainman of Ant-Bee. In this slice of our conversation we discuss all sorts of interesting things including his work with Steve Vai and Frank Zappa, and how he took a leaf from Zappa's book when compiling the Ant-Bee records:

I know that I am not supposed to post unofficial recordings here, but in the case of this three part film from Venezuelan TV back in 2000, featuring Rick Wakeman and his son doing a totally extraordinary version of The Beatles 'Eleanor Rigby', I really couldn't resist:

We have the track listing for Michael Des Barres eagerly awaited new album:

We say goodbye to Robin Gibb:

I wax eulogistically about the new Grateful Dead documentary from Chrome Dreams:

We have an interview from Dutch radio with Roy Webber from Jackson-Webber and the mighty Wally:

And we have a link to an interesting review of Merrell Fankhauser:
