...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)


MONEY IS INNOCENT (DAEVID ALLEN)

WOT IS WORTH AND WHAT IS VALUED?
what you want and what you hold
what you give and what you treasure
what you steal and what you let go/
Objects,emotions,lovers,friends
Experiences,memories,trust in futuring
All you list ,inventory or have forgotten
All outside your powers of attraction
Maybe you wish to be an astronaut?
Deep sea diver,a treasure chest of art?
Skier,surgeon,ballet dancer,astrologer
Perhaps all you want is to be young(forever-
Portrait of Dorian Gray/Artist as a Young Man
Perhaps your autobiography is by ANON
Maybe you should write your life poem
and then give it to someone else
see if it fits!
