Gonzo on Wednesday

The Gonzo Daily: Wednesday

https://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/

So my new computer arrived yesterday, two days early which made me very pleased indeed. However, then it all went somewhat pear shaped as I couldn't install my video editing software, and kept on getting irritating error messadges about something called XML4. However, as Graham had gone to bed by the time I stopped fiddling with the bloody thing, I left it on last night so as not to loose the error messages. In the night it apparently did a whole bunch oif updates, and now the programme appears to work perfectly. But rather than being complacent I am going to be even more diligent than I have been about backing up anything of even minor importance. I appear not to have lost anything from the last computer dying, but I have no wish to go back to the bad old days.

Now I am listening to Man Erg, and trying to put the Parish Magazine together.

Peace.

YER EDITOR SEZ: THE DIGITAL PRAYER FLAG

You guys have been doing massive amounts of praying for Corinna. I believe that the outpouring of good vibes transmitted electronically, being a little like a Tibetan prayer flag. Find out more:

And by the way chaps and chappesses, a trip to the Jon Downes megastore may seem to be in order:

Meanwhile I continue to pretend that I am a popstar, because now I have sold eleven whole copies of my new album Coldharbour. If I continue at this rate I will get a silver disc sometime at the beginning of the next millenium. Coldharbour, by the way, can be found here: https://jondownes1.bandcamp.com/releases

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:

Gonzo Weekly #367/8

THE DEMOCRACY ISSUE

http://www.gonzoweekly.com/

This peculiarly prescient issue features Alan at a Register to Vote gig in Todmorden, Jon discussing the unexpected result of his PIP application and the Toxteth Day of the Dead, Kev meets Tom Slatter, Graham describes the culmination of Hawkwind's 50th Anniversary Tour, and there is special news for fans of the late Robert Calvert.

Now THAT's what I call eclectic!

Hail Eris!

And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Canterbury sans Fronieres AND Merrell Fankhauser, but no sign of Srange Fruit this week, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and one from Mr Biffo, and one from C J Stone, and one from Neil Nixom but Roy Weard, is 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!!!

This issue features:

Marvel Comics, Watchmen, Alan Moore, Paul McCartney, Graham Coxon, Blur, Sharon Osbourne, Peter Gabriel, Elton John, Pet Shop Boys, Richard Freeman, Strange Fruit, Friday Night Progressive, Canterbury Sann Frontieres, The Merrell Fankhauser Show, Mack Maloney's Mystery Hour, RM djaduk ferianto Gregory, Jamarr Antonio Stamps (Bad Azz), Jan A.

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 jon@eclipse.co.uk 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 jon@eclipse.co.uk. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at gonzo@cfz.org.uk. 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, his elderly mother-in-law, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
