...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)




Begin where you are

in body/being more than senses
connected,connecting,learning,growing
hand! reach out to touch -hand!
arm to arm-hold,huddle,cuddle
other more than mirror/depth more than surface
net of senses fishing in a uni-verse
i do not hear mermaids.i see dugongs
killer whales .sharks in a stock market
and yet-hallucinations,false memories,hypnotisms
straw in water,magic of illusion.Perspective,mirages
Trusting senses is like having servants.Some lie!
Every morning,a newspaper.Each of us ,editorializing
May we never be headlines!
