...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)

THE ART OF FORGETTING
Forget the names of gods and goddesses-
they have been replaced by products,offshored services- and apps
Gaia no longer can control her moontides
and Persephone desires a sequel to UNDERWORLD 
Forget Nature-your future is PLASTIC! Adapt!
Forget freedom-hippy cliches never convinced anyone
Forget music-hypnotism and repetition
Forget art-price tags and parties
Forget history-It never repeats
Forget forgetfulness-morphing mutants rely upon this-
that as soon as your eyes leave-your mind follows
Distraction is an art form(entertainment)

Destruction is only one letter away.That letter is U.
