A word about cryptolinks: we are not responsible for the content of cryptolinks, which are merely links to outside articles that we think are interesting (sometimes for the wrong reasons), usually posted up without any comment whatsoever from me.
On Saturday, August 3rd, 2013, a family from Bethel witnessed a very tall, black colored creature walking upright while they were out picking berries.
The family of three – the dad and mom and their young daughter – were out on the Penguq River near the village of Napakiak. The creature was walking on the winter Napakiak-Atmautluak Trail when the family saw it. The dad saw it first and pointed it out to his wife when she got closer to where he was picking berries.
“Look honey, do you see that?” he asked. “Yes, I see it! Ila-i, it looks so black and huge,” said the wife.
While they were observing it, the creature crouched down when an airplane flew overhead. The being then walked down a rise in the tundra.
The sight of the creature scared the mother and daughter so they started heading back to their boat.
“We were so scared,” said the mom. “It was so black and tall.”

In an article for the first edition of Cryptozoology Bernard Heuvelmans wrote that cryptozoology is the study of 'unexpected animals' and following on from that perfectly reasonable assertion, it seems to us that whereas the study of out-of-place birds may not have the glamour of the hunt for bigfoot or lake monsters, it is still a perfectly valid area for the Fortean zoologist to be interested in. So after about six months of regular postings on the main bloggo Corinna took the plunge and started a 'Watcher of the Skies' blog of her own as part of the CFZ Bloggo Network.

I don't want to come across as one of those people who
are always bellyaching about their illnesses, but I DO want to explain why I am
less than accessible at the moment. I am feeling completely wretched at the
moment and am finding it hard to communicate with anyone apart from Graham and
Corinna, and so I am hiding as much as I can. Hopefully I will be back to what
passes for normal in my life soon. In the meantime please forgive me if I don't
answer phonecalls or emails.

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 same team also do a
weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about it
at this link: http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/11/all-gonzo-news-wots-fit-to-print.html
We should probably mention here, that some of our posts are links to things we
have found on the internet that we think are of interest. We are not responsible
for spelling or factual errors in other people's websites. Honest guv!
Jon Downes, the Editor of all these ventures (and several others) is an old
hippy of 54 who - together with his orange cat (who is currently on sick leave
in Staffordshire) and two very small kittens (one of whom is also orange) puts
it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in
rural Devon which he shares with various fish, and sometimes a small Indian
frog. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer
Prudence, his elderly mother-in-law, and a motley collection of social
malcontents. Plus.. did we mention the orange cat?
Yesterday’s News Today
On this day in 1638 Oliver Cromwell died. Ironically Cromwell, a man whose army won a civil war and deposed a king before becoming Britain's ruler himself, is the reason why Britain still has kings. By the end of his 'reign' everyone was so cheesed off with his anti-fun policies that soon after his son took over as leader parliament invited the last king's son, Charles II, to be king again.
And now the news:
Charles II sings about his reign:
