YER EDITOR SEZ:
I truly couldn't bring myself to write a poem about this week's hopes and fears, even though I had a cracking rhyme for biopsy. So, basically as I wrote on Friday, there is no news as far as Corinna is concerned; she is still pain free and in good spirits, and we are both thankful that her next procedure is on Tuesday so we will then (or at least when the results are through a fortnight or so later) know the diagnosis, the prognosis, and what treatment will be necessary. Many thanks, once again, for and to everyone who has sent their love and good wishes. To be at the receiving end of such an outpouring of positive energy is truly a wonderful - and oddly humbling - thing.
Do I sound like an old hippy here? Well if the cap fits...

AND THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE GONZO MAGAZINE:
Gonzo Weekly #299/300
THE RESPECT IS DUE ISSUE
In another fun packed and spectacularly Gonzoesque issue, Doug goes to see Bow wow wow and ABC and Belinda Carlisle and more at Retro Futura, Alan loves Courtney Barnett's new album, and looks at the return of the Necessary Animals, Jon bitches
about Fake News and praises snarky online book critiquing, Graham examines a Hawkwind rarity that isn't and there is poetry
from Thom and Josephine Dunn.
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, AND there are columns from all sorts of folk including Kev Rowlands, Neil Nixon, C J Stone, AND Roy Weard BUT the irrepressible Corinna AND Mr Biffo are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and red kangaroos who've lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with the largest extant macropods who are in a quandry with regards their footwear, 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 58 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?
