Let's start off today with a visit to our old friend Thom the World Poet, for a very peculiar, but rather intriguing poem about a man, a fish, a lion, and some French people. A healthy dose of surrealism is a great way to start the day. Ask Andre Breton.
As you may or may not know, each day I post these notifications to about a dozen Facebook groups (which is quite possibly where you are reading this now). Yesterday I found this image on one of them, and it made me laugh, and any schoolboyish pranks featuring our own shared cultural heritage is bound to do. 21st Century Bogey-man.
I also found this on Facebook - a nice slice of memorabilia from Jon Anderson's recent South American Tour, that I guess most of you have not seen. By the way, if anyone has nice bits of tour memorabilia like this, email me pics, and I will post them up..
The guy who has made one of the best records of the year, on the world's most popular TV Drama. Michael Des Barres on NCIS of course - here's the trailer..
Rob Ayling emailed me this last night. A picture of him with the Gongfolk at a secret location in London, together with a few words about why Gong still means so much to him. They still mean a lot to me as well dude..
I really am fond of Helen McCookerybook's writing. I also like this picture of her tuning up at a recent Brighton show, so I have pinched bits from two different bits of her blog, and put them together in my own inimitable style. Forgive me, Helen.
The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at email@example.com. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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?
