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



Please forgive the fairly perfunctory nature of today's postings, but I have a doctor's appointment just after mid-day and I want to get as much done before I go as I can. Hopefully my hearing problems will soon be sorted..

I have to admit that I am feeling quite pleased with myself blogwise today. Yesterday we posted the 1000th story. I am amazed it has gone so quickly...

Chris Thompson really is a smashing artist. I have been an avid fan since early April when the Gonzo grande fromage came to visit, and plonked a copy of Chris' new live DVD/CD package into my sticky little hands and said, 'Listen to this dude' (or words to that effect). From the looks of reviews like this, I am not the only afficianado..

It is difficult to know what to say about Rick Wakeman; he plays piano like an angel, he has a ridiculously schoolboy sense of humour (as do I) and he likes cats. He has also just released an archive live album from 2003 which is jolly good.

Dan Wooding is a jolly interesting chap. He has written a number of interesting biographies inclusing one of Britain's first rock and roll rebel Terry Dene, and 'the caped crusader' Rick Wakeman. The Terry Dene book comes out imminently through Gonzo, and the Wakeman book is out now. Check it out.

As you must have noticed whilst reading these pages over the last few weeks (assuming that you have been reading these pages over the past few weeks) Michael Des Barres has a new album out. He has been doing a lot of major interviews, and I thinmk that this one is possibly the best yet..

I have always been a big Beatles fan, and I am also a very keen devotee of the work of Captain Beefheart, but it would never have occurred to me to compare them. However, someone has, and today I have done a link to a remarkably incisive article..

And that is about it for today. I am off to get my ears syringed. Hey Ho!
