...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)

TAYLOR SWIFT AND ME
Paul McCartney wings in Wednesday
Taylor Swift on Tuesday
Both concerts(like both artists)SOLD OUT
I am outside WALMART-see a blue radio station van(KHFI-FM)
I know this is a giveaway-i ask her ,smiling-"WHATCHA GOT?"
She gives me film passes to an unreleased"NOW YOU SEE ME"
and Round Rock Express vs Nashville Sounds.(Surreal!)
She also suggest i enter for two tickets to see Taylor Swift
The concert has been sold out for some time-so i fill in the form
Return later to find she has picked my name-now i have two passes
to see an artist of a generation my children's children is familiar with.
This is the Great Mystery-anything can happen @any time
Any interpretation of events is subject to review
and if i knew the cultural significance of what just happened
The explanation would take longer than the actual events
 JUST LIKE LIFE!
