...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)

GET WITH THE PROGRAM

whole areas are becoming NO GO ZONES
one can no longer laugh in airports
you get arrested for wearing tshirts deemed "offensive"
you get thrown off flights if too fat or too smelly
or even if the Captain takes offense to your presence
that is why (i guess)we are becoming both bland and anonymous
Bob Dylan was arrested around the Twin Towers area
without ID ,how could he prove who he was?
Alzheimers patients like dogs and students have chips implanted
soon we will all carry more than GPS tags
Drones can locate us @all times.Best to plug in to the Matrix
Follow EMERGENCY PROCEDURES.Hand in your rights at the door
You can be free-but not here./not now
Please wear your laminate @all times.Show ID .STAY CALM.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
