...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)

THREE WOMEN

BOY GEORGE (In Thacher's 80s-
both with Culture Club and solo
stayed after shows and chatted with his "Mini-mes"-
look-a-like camp followers who saw in him a role model
Katy Perry's ROAR,Lady Ga-Ga's "Little Monsters"
Amanda Palmer's support acts and busking
all engage "audiences"as more than fan clubs.
They use Tweets as continuing conversation
sharing an illusion of intimacy for all broken families /
role models for LGBT communities /fashionistas of the future.
"Female Empowerment" post-Disney Britney ?-or Mother Madonna hover
as alternative Saint Seculars.But what jerk invented twerking??
