...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)

WHEN THE WILDE  COMES&ENTERS
WE ARE FILLED WITH STRANGE WONDERS
Energies of waterfalls and salmon defying gravity/
bumblebees flying weights on tiny wings
Science disputes every particle of what you are feeling
When that cassowary  could have attacked
or that fish bit your knee
or sounds of snake slithering alerted
you could be a casualty.When whirlwinds took possession
of the dust and earth and air/all gravity suspended
Is that your house up there?Miniature mites ,ticks,bug bites
Mosquito with a plague.Tiny deaths define us.Only some are saved
Remember our fragility when science claims her wonders
There is much in this wilde world we have yet to uncover!
