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)


 A Dog and a Dophin -- Un perro y un delfín - a Greek short film
WISHING VIOLETTE/HELLION -served Tom Cruise/TRANSFORMERS#4
Liking subtitled foreign films-served cartoon Disney Pixar
Liking truth of kitchen sink drama-served comics and soap operas
Wanting independent film production-getting fine work by Anyah Dishon/Kenneth Smeaton
Magic?Special effects?Photoshop?Ever wonder how it is done?
when even wonder wanders -about overblown Hollywood Blockbusters
when we each need to create our own life stories/
share those visions and those dreams/just in case/we get displaced

and start living someone else's scripts!

...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.
