WATCHER OF THE SKIES: Today's Fortean bird news
After about six months of regular postings on the main bloggo, Corinna has taken the plunge and started a 'Watcher of the Skies' blog of her own as part of the CFZ Bloggo Network.

FORTEAN LINK: Another odd taxidermy story
What if -- for some reason -- you wanted to buy the mummified carcass of a cat slam-dunking a mummified bird? You may think you'd be out of luck. But you'd be wrong.
eBay has made buying everything from jeans to video games at a discount a whole lot easier. It's also helped buyers and sellers meet for sales of less common products.
Last week, a bizarre auction popped up on the site with a very to-the-point and jarring title: "mummified cat slam dunking a mummified bird." The sale page featured a photo depicting the petrified corpse of a cat hanging on the rim of a miniature basketball hoop, with an alleged dead bird stuck in the net. The asking price for this insane item? A starting bid of $550, with a Buy-It-Now price of $750.

I'M YER GONZO BLOG DOO DAH MAN
And so another working week begins. We are rushing around like the proverbial headless chickens trying to get everything sorted out before Corinna leaves tomorrow. The ever lovely Jess H is in the office with me today, and I hope we shall achieve great things today...
My brother-in-law Antony sent me a brief message on Facebook. He basically agreed with what I wrote yesterday about The Beach Boys on Later with Jools Holland, and sent me the following link. The story of how this band is unravelling before our eyes continues, and I make no apologies for featuring it heavily here on the Gonzo Daily. This is rock and roll history in action...http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-beach-boys-not-having-that-much-fun.html
I often post links to stories about various Gonzofolk, but on the whole these tend to be 'professional' links; to reviews and interviews that have been conducted by websites that are known for doing such things. It is nice, therefore, to find the blog of just an ordinary person who just happens to like Michael Des Barres.
Another visit to the singular universe of Thom the World Poet
I have had these two reviews of the latest Erik Norlander CD/DVD packages floating about for a week or so now, and I am glad of the opportunity to post them...
News from the fabulous Cristiano Roversi about his new album 'AntiQua'.
A link to a very revealing interview with the massively groovy Paul Kantner...
The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at email@example.com. 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...
The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine (mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The Editor is an old hippy of 53 who - together with his orange cat - puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer Prudence, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention the orange cat?

TODAY'S BIG CAT ROUND UP
The hunt for British Big Cats attracts far more newspaper-column inches than any other cryptozoological subject. There are so many of them now that we feel that they should be archived by us in some way, so we should have a go at publishing a regular round-up of the stories as they come in. In September 2012 Emma Osborne decided that the Mystery Cat Study Group really deserved a blog of its own within the CFZ Blog Network.
Here is the latest tranche of news...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today
On this day in 1982 the Disney Epcot theme park opened. It's difficult to explain to anyone who has never been to Epcot just how bizarre it is but it's a bit like transporting yourself into a live version of the episodes of BBC's 'Tomorrows World' where they got everything wrong, and following it up by asking UKIP to tell you about the diverse nations of Europe and then removing all the swearwords.
And now the news:
