The Gonzo Daily: Friday/Saturday
EWhat is there to say? Graham is pon his way to town to do supply shopping, I have a couple of last minute changes to make to the Village News, the new Gonzo Weekly is being put out imminently, and I desperately want to go to sleep...
And, yes, in the midst of all of this I managed to get the latest episode of On The Track out, in which I channel my inner Francis Ford Copolla...
The eagle-eyed amongst you will probably have noticed that the Gonzo Multimedia websites have changed and are in a process of flux, so there are no individual sales links at the moment. But check out www.gonzomultimedia.co.uk
for a thing of wonder. The Gonzo Books site is now pretty well done, although there are still nine authoors who need personal pages. You can find it ay www.gonzopublishers.com
and then tell me what a clever fellow I am. It even has a haiku to explain why some links are not finished:
"These links do not work,
now but they will do so soon,
BUT ENOUGH OF THE WAFFLE; HERE IS TODAY'S NEWS...
AND OTHER STUFF FEATURING VARIOUS GONZO CONTRIBUTORS:
I think it is really rather good, but then again I would say that wouldn't I?
AND THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE GONZO MAGAZINE:
In this revolutionarily radical issue we go along on the Climate March in Bristol with maybe 30,000 others, we meet Extinction Rebellion, take a look at Peter Green's latest reissue, argue the toss about Dr Dolittle, we have the latest from The Gardening Club, find out about the time Aleister Crowley had a spat with W Somerset Maugham, and we join PAART with their animal rescue mission. And much more...
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Merrell Fankhauser, but no sign of Strange Fruit this week, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and one from C.J.Stone, although Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and Roy Weard, 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!!!

* 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.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 60 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 and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
