...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)

WHERE TO RETIRE
WHEN I FIRST DIED,I WAS HAPPY JUST TO BE
IN THE COMPANY OF FRIENDS WHO ENJOYED GOOD COMPANY
It did not matter that the cold and frost and poverty
meant we could not afford heating,air conditioning -even a fan
for the heat swung lazily atop ceilings.All climate is emotional!
Second Life ,i was an Avatar(Spirit Aviator!)so in love with life
i lost it!Third Life,i was practicing to be a cat.Such patience!
Fourth life i was a still life.A lake.A mountain.A deep forest.
Fifth was just reading books and watching movies.(no popcorn!
Sixth Sense intuited that this was an ongoing cycle
so in my Seventh Seal/Aura/Shakra,i simply surrendered
This is now my eighth turn of the wheel.Nine is perfection


I avoid that!
