...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling writes: 

"Thom the World poet, is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearences with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

MEETING THE MOMENT

to undress the past/to express where we are
to meet match merge moments
we had to leave all pasts behind
this is an exploration.We have no maps-only blank ones
when we voyage into the knew,we choose to re-align
not with past riffs or familiar safety zones
more with the sweet kiss of the indefinite
black swan economics/catastrophe theory history/we
become more by exploring than repeating.Only plan is to open
Then the sweet sap of each diamond breathing is revealed
Yoga ,feng shui,tai chi,poetry,music,art-all partial truths
The real garden is within.Seeded moments,awaiting harvests!
