...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)


ROADRUNNER, BABY

Once@Enchanted Rock,he played Native American flute
Roadrunner appeared-stared,walked away.Today,near Elgin
Easter Sunday/storm in the air/eggs scattered inside /we stared
at tiny Stonehenge and Arch Metal Gate.St Francis with a baby head.
Movement .Roadrunner."Yes-that's why we bought this place-
they are everywhere/leaping over fences with cartoon alacrity!
Sometimes you see them in the bushes.."(and we did!)-at least one
Camera not quick enough.This story of a totem-if you go to Elgin
If it is Easter.If you are lucky.You might see her.Top feathers
Bouncing agile as air.There are road runners/everywhere
Baby!
