...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)

BOOK WOMEN
Threaded destinies over three locations-
a point of pilgrimage for emancipation
comes when one's aloneness is challenged via solidarity
(or at least being with consonant company)
Each had come and been among the pilgrims
Each had purchased other people's poetic visions
Both are now in positions of poetic influence
Both honored and respected the space that gave them poetic rebirth
See!Her daughter clings and sings a poem in refrain
and we are @Book Woman's Open Hearted Mike again
Hear!From Congo to Czech Republic,Indiana to San Antone

When you grow in spirit-you are never alone!

I AM WOMAN!(Helen Reddy)
Personae suit changes King to Queen-
Kali,Shakti,Madeleine Albright,Hiliary Clinton
Margaret Thatcher,Mother Theresa,Emily Pankhurst,Angela Davis
Mothers,grandmothers,sisters,lovers,friends,allies,companions
Half the human race (too many for stereotypes)-no longer fit as
one size fits all/career woman/housewife/rock star/folk singer/poet/novelist
Lists of achievements defy limitation by definition
Feed your children as you feed your spirit.All is possible
only when limits are removed -by definition.Love is all.

"GET OUT IN THE STREETS AND RATTLE THOSE POTS AND PANS"(Molly Ivins)
Women in Black.Mothers Of The Disappeared.Women in Pink
Women on the streets.On radio.TV.In every home-reclaiming the night/and day
Afternoon ,morning-every singular moment of attention
Reminding brain and heart are connected in one
any separation /limitation =eggshells to be pecked open!
