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...

LINK: Little Girl Photographs Adolescent Blobsquatch

Guess what? Not only do adults take bad fuzzy photos of cryptoids, but now it seems kids do as well. At least that what we’re led to believe by this latest alleged picture of Bigfoot.

It all took place in Wunnumin Lake, Ontario when a little girl was out frolicking with her friends and of course when you go to the lake for an outing you naturally bring your I-Pod along because, come on! What could there be to do outside?

Apparently she was lagging behind the group and happen to see the little guy, who likely just wanted to join in the fun.

Here’s the story from Wawatay News:

LINK: Sanger Paranormal - Swabbing Bigfoot DNA From Car Windshield

Last summer, Jeffrey Gonzalez’s team (Sanger Paranormal Society) broke headlines with the tantalizing story of what they believed to be Bigfoot saliva, face, and hand prints left behind on his truck’s windows. The Sanger team quickly seized the glass as evidence and began asking for DNA testing to be done. Their calls went unanswered until now.

Is Bigfoot on the loose in the Washington? That's what a YouTube video doing the rounds on the internet is claiming. The footage, uploaded by Ryan LeDoux in April, shows a hulking creature covered in thick, dark hair bolting across a path in the Washington woods.

More on the way when I can work the kinks out of Blogger


Good morning campers! I have not been very well over the past few days, but now I am back with a vengeance, and a really complicated few days ahead of me. Never mind. Hopefully there will be some exciting news in a day or two.
In the meantime:
Gordon Giltrap really is an extraordinary guitarist. I have seen him live on about half a dozen occasions, and am always awestruck by his prowess. I am really pleased to be in a position where I can promote the stuff that he does, by - for example - reposting this story about his forthcoming tour with Oliver Wakeman...
Our daily visit to the universe of Thom the World Poet
Erik Norlander's singular brand of instrumental prog rock is making him fans across the world. Herewith another review...
Rock and Roll as always been a global phenomenon. The recent scandal over 'Pussy Riot' in Russia, and the massive wave of popular support for them from across the world shows this. I am always impressed by the geographical spread of reviews we get in - today Michael Des Barres in Israel..
Backalong (as they say in Devonshire), Rick Wakeman and Jon Anderson collaborated on an album and tour. The subsequent live album also came out on Gonzo, and is here given a rather spiffing review..
Publish Post
I am particularly fond of some of the releases in the critically acclaimed 'Lost Broadcasts' series of DVDs which showcase material recorded for German TV back in the day. The first one of these that I came across was the one featuring Spooky Tooth, and it was this DVD that was the subject of my first slice of writing for what was to become The Gonzo Daily...
The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at jon@eclipse.co.uk. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at gonzo@cfz.org.uk. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow..

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today


On this day in 1960 at the Rome Olympics Abebe Bikila became the first Sub-Saharan African to win a gold medal when he won the marathon. The most impressive part of that victory was that he ran the entire race barefoot (if ever there were a reason to get a footspa, that is it, ouch).

And now the news:
