...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)

HOW TO VOTE

Engage. Listen. Absorb, Integrate. Assimilate.
Begin with one. Gather. Work together. Learn tactics and strategies. Sing. Speak.
Watch. Witness. Report. Share versions of visions and truths. Organize.
Adapt to changing circumstances. Flow round mountains of difficulties.
Water knows-its many forms all serve essential functions
Earth knows-patience,persistence,passionate as earthquakes /volcanoes
Air knows-breath in influences,breath out ideas,solutions
Fire knows-heated exchanges of values warm or scorch earth
Elementally,you carry wisdom of tribe and ancestors.We are in process
This is not nominal,nor occasional.It is a life commitment to community
Yours,ours-the "unity"we seek meets our common needs.
Relearn in every moment how to be effective.
Do more than vote-BE!
