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 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!!"

Fw: Can Putin Survive?
Media Mass plays "People Chess"
with pix of leaders and captions beneath.Second hand life!
It makes us believe we have some role to play-
even when our wishes for peace and prosperity are distracted
and directed to war conversations and depressions.
While we have breath-it is our breath (not Putin's!
Granted he has made life hard for homosexuals,FEMEN,Ukrainians etc etc
Yet every light of celebration eclipses conflict patterns
Every space for harmony diminishes power politics
This may seem a fantasy-yet look @PIXAR and Disney

though the eyes of FROZEN attitudes-and "LET IT GO!"
