The Gonzo Daily - Saturday
Yesterday I wrote that I was in a bizarrely good mood. Sad to report, it lasted just about as long as it took me to mail out all the notifications with this comment in it. The internet died almost immediately and now, once again, I am in the position of working on an ancient laptop in the corner of the sitting room. Add to that the fact that the email I sent about the final tweak to volume two of the Journal of Cryptozoology must have gone astray and it took a string of telephone calls before it was finally entered in for processing, and the good mood was a thing of history.
A big apology to everyone who has been waiting for the Journal of Cryptozoology since the end of November. Although the initial cock up (to use the technical term) was my fault, the two or three most recent ones have been completely beyond my control. However, I have every reason to suppose that it will be mailed out next week.

* 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: www.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?
