...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)

FEAR IS ANGER INTERNALISED
SO I TURN THE SMILE TO"ON"!
Energize my battery-powered heart
Enlarge horizons to meet and connect
with those radios of like-minded frequencies
We like each other/hang round together
as Ben Franklin said"We either hang together
or we will surely hang separately!"
Tangible as happiness /upstream from contentment
we engage those energetic impulses
beyond mere survivalism-into a pot-pourri of trust
in our very best impulses/engage each other
in random vision quests.Devote time,energy and attention
to this unique and precious moment-and make of this
what ye will.We are alive and well...until
