Wired, Boing Boing, Fimoculus, and Cox: America’s Still Going Crazy for Cryptozoology

This week, Rex Sorgatz’s Fimoculous.com Best Lists site, which annually compiles a “best of best” list, has posted their final “Top 20 Lists of 2005″ list. I was pleased and sincerely humbled to see Cryptomundo.com’s “The Top Cryptozoology Stories of 2005″ listed on Fimoculus’s “Top 20 Lists of 2005.”

On December 29, 2005, Phil Kloer at Cox News Service put Cryptomundo.com’s list, “The Top Cryptozoology Books of 2005″ as #7 on Cox News Services’ “A Top 10 list of Top 10 lists” for 2005. Cryptomundo was honored by that recognition, as well.

Wired News’ Mark Baard’s often-quoted comment captured in the headline to his article, “America Goes Cryptozoology Crazy,” certainly continues to ring true, now, in reflection upon last year.

Boing Boing’s David Pescovitz captured it directly, when, on December 25, 2005, he posted the highlights of our “The Top Cryptozoology Stories of 2005,” and noted: “Thanks to Loren, many of these cryptozoological events are familiar to regular BB readers. It was certainly a great year for high weirdness and strange animals.”

Yes, it definitely was.

Now here we are in 2006, and it is starting off fast and furious with all the Malaysian Media Madness and other cryptozoological news that Cryptomundo will keep you informed of as the days flash along. And if we don’t hear about it first, we sure hope you let us know about it – complete with the links and the locations.
