...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)

AIR IS STILL FREE, MAN
Evade the oxygen machines and canned air-Breathe!DEEP!
Avoid the canned muzak and keep performance LIVE!
Escape the can/cone of earbud digital silence-CONVERSE!
Make every moment as if it is your encore-COME ALIVE!
Off the path/road/track is where butterflies flip best
There is no pre-determined GOOGLE (life) map
(Even GOOGLE is censored."DO NO HARM"hides military bases)
It may be that you were right all along(Life IS a song!
and your dedicated listening,sharing,creating and collaborating
are public paths to original consciousness.What if you WERE right?
&your writings,drawings,scribblings,jottings
were important ways of seeing(differently..
What if you were free?
