...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 appearances 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)


Mitakuye Oyas'in
Hawk sends Lakota prayers to our heart in hospital
Herman uses his time like a Monastery
When the priest asked"what do you need or want?"
He replied-"Paper,pencils,eraser".(Supplied immediately)
Tantalus Modern Myth-here he is in Room 501-a suite
with every convenience known to man-
refrigerator,stove,coffee maker-and he is banned
from imbibing solid food or liquids.Paradox rules us!
Every thing he sees becomes a line of poetry
Every visitor on psychic or spirit level sings to him-
we,the living,claim him.Spirit Singers-bring him back to us!
We need every huge heart living before St Valentine returns !
