And for no real reason Sunday's notifications are done in rhyme
Sunday afternoon doing just what I like,
trying to coax a vocal out of Mike,
The backing got done with very few bugs
but our vocals sound just like the worst football thugs
not the sensitive souls that we want to achieve,
so we've both given up, Mike's just going to leave,
but as part of our policy that all you need's love,
we have just taken in a half fledged collared dove,
and when I've done the blogs I wanted you to know
I am appearing on a bigfoot radio show
and then at ten o'clock if everything is fine
I shall disappear off with a bottle of wine
and maybe some cheese (and I think that I may)
look back on another peculiar day
THE GONZO TRACK OF THE DAY: Mother Of Darkness
THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem
LEONARD COHEN: Travelin' Light
GONZO WEEKLY #223

THE COR FAB FOUR WAR ISSUE
In this exciting issue, Jon critiques Tony Palmer’s reboot of what was the worst and weirdest Beatles film ever, Doug enthuses on Camel, Alan meets DJ Jeremiayah, John looks at the Spirit albums released after Randy California’s untimely death, Igor presents a dialogue on acoustic philosophy, and there are lots of other things as well!
It’s all free!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive, Strange Fruit, Jeremy Smith's new project The Seven Deadly Sins, and an episode of Canterbury Sans Frontieres which fell through the cracks of my emails. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside zoos (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!

SPECIAL NOTICE: If you, too, want to unleash the power of your inner rock journalist, and want to join a rapidly growing band of likewise minded weirdos please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The more the merrier really.
* 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 same team also do a weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about it at this link: www.gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.co.uk
* 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 57 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, and two half grown kittens, one totally coincidentally named after one of the Manson Family, purely because she squeaks, puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon which he shares with various fish. 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 Archie and the Cats?
