...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)

MOVIE MULTIPLEX MEDITATIONS
When films are fresh released on Friday
Find me @Barton Creek Mall @first session
then @them all-seeing how many mini-movies
can be seen in one day's dream!When night calls
i leave all filmed dreams behind-emerge from cocoon rooms
air conditioned to abstraction-make my way home
with a jumble full of words and images to assimilate
Sometimes they make sense-most often not.
Digital children understand/analogue parents do not!
Like Film Festivals-when images melt and morph and merge
into a split screen soup salad buffet of half digested pap.
ZAP! goes the special effects&IMAX!3D my unilateral surrender

My ticket to Temporary Distraction awaits Forthcoming Attractions!
