...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)

SPIED UPON (AND SPYING)

14 US bases in Australia.Tracking stations for satellites and submarines
Eyes on the skies ,ear to the Asian neighbors/listening Indonesian,
where US military aid  enabled invasions of Timor and New Guinea.
"Welcome to North West Cape-Australia's Number#1 Nuclear Target!"
(The beer mats in Western Australia have a black sense of humor.)
Australia settled by Europeans within the geography of Asia/
besieged by refugees now parked on Christmas Island
Timorese assisted Aussies in World War 2
we did not return the favor when they were invaded
Now we know that the US spies on Aussies
No Australian allowed on their "secret"bases.
Pine Gap to Nurrungar,we are aware
of their spying and being spied upon.Better
the devil you know,than the neighbors..
