The Gonzo Daily - Saturday
The other week I bought Charlotte a copy of 'The
Amateur Naturalist' by Gerald Durrell. It finally arrived this morning, and she
came down to collect it. This got me thinking. There was a multi part TV series
which went with the book. Someone, somewhere must have recorded it. Could it
possibly be that this hypothetical someone is reading this blog post today? If
you have a copy of this, or any of the other Durrell TV series, please email me.
I would love to see them again.

But I have an update for you all: The cover story
is about the triumphant return of Swiss prog band Clepsydra last weekend. But
look what I have found: If you look on YouTube there is actually some footage of
last weekend's gig.

* Jon Downes, the Editor of all these
ventures (and several others) is an old hippy of 54 who - together with an
orange kitten named after a song by Frank Zappa 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 kitten?
