The Gonzo Daily: Thursday
Well the big news is that yesterday we posted the first episode of the new
run of our monthly webTV series. It is actually Episode 76, and I haven't
decided yet whether to start numbering it from the start of the new run or not.
But it sounds a bit Pol Pot-ish Year Zero doesn't it. You can see the new
episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMBBWWjoGXc
Thank you, not only to everyone involved, but to those of you who were kind
to watch it with us as soon as it came out. It was a very special experience.
Please, people, do me a favour and share the link far and wide. We want this new
series to have as big an impact as possible.
Over to dear old David Herbert:
Don't do it for the money,
do it and be damned to the money.
Don't do it for equality,
do it because we've got too much equality
and it would be fun to upset the apple-cart
and see which way the apples would go a-rolling.
Don't do it for the working classes.
Do it so that we can all of us be little aristocracies on our own
and kick our heels like jolly escaped asses.
But now, here is the news:

* 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

* 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
* 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?
