...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)

RE-READING COLIN WILSON
CURIOSITY CAT GOES BACK TO TRACTS OF ADOLESCENCE
Re-reading Hesse,Fowles,Castaneda,Watts,Jung,Rilke-and Colin Wilson
Colin asked questions-did Jesus visit Glastonbury via Cornwall?
Are there Space Portals and Worm Holes in Time?
Which Myths can still be corroborated in our physical landscapes?
How much Metaphor in Dragons,Quarks,Dodos and Quasars?
Walking with Colin's mind/reminded me of Greek Perambulation
He like Socrates,simply asked questions.Answers may be updated -
like BEYOND THE OUTSIDER.And he was always ready to admit new truths.
Seeing these Strange New Worlds through his eyes and hands and ideas gave youth
a bravery that escaped the chains of mental slavery-being open to new truths.

For me,each moment is new.So when he writes of Shakespeare's syphilis,i listen..
