And for no real reason Sunday's notifications are done in rhyme
It's Sunday so again its time
to do the daily blogs in rhyme:
My wife is a pretty remarkable lady
for putting up with me like she does
and whether the weather is sunny or shady
she's my one steady constant because
she's the one thing that brings out meaning in my life
she's the one thing that still keeps me going
I'd be nothing without having her as my wife
that is something I'll always be knowing
the references to weather (I suppose I must say)
are basically all metaphorical
when I feel sorry for myself (like today)
I tend to get all allegorical
so forgive me my darling for being a twat
and I promise that I'll do my best
I'm paranoid, needy, and crazy and fat
but there's no excuse for all the rest
so my love while I roll around deep in remorse
and beat myself up through the day
just remember I love you (and need you of course)
and that's not jst a thing that I say.
I mean it.

AND THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE GONZO MAGAZINE:
Gonzo Weekly #349/50
THE STRANGE MACHINES ISSUE
In this peculiar issue we meet Experimental Sonic Machines, or at least their avatar here on earth, Steve mans the barricades as Extinction Rebellion invade Cardiff, Doug goes to see Beck, and Alan goes to Samye Ling – during the second UK Kagyu Monlam prayers and study sessions. There is also some musing about Digitiser Live and Richard Freeman’s new book is reviewed…
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Strange Fruit, there are columns from Kev Rowland and Mr Biffo, but C J Stone, and Roy Weard, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and antichinuses who have lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are searching for 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 59 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, three other cats, 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 elderly mother-in-law, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
