...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)

HUGGING AMMA

Amma Mamma hails from Kerala
Jolly Goodfellow from Australia
They meet in America,where he gives her an apple
She hugs him for 10 hours/whispers healing wise words in his ears
Showers him with rose petals and blessings
and continues to hug him until he hallucinates happiness
She has hugged 35 million people-up to 14 hours each @a time
This is putting your body on the line!
Jolly Goodfellow is an itinerant street performer
His clowning shows often glow for 24-36 hours
Both are marathon generators of hugs,healing,happiness
Neither need drums,guns,bombs nor uniforms
Individuals,unique,public-being among our many million moments
supplying joy -one hug @a time!
