...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)

TINY STORIES (for Dennis Ciscel)
I AM NOT SAYING HE IS A HARSH EDITOR
yet he took WAR & PEACE and turned it to a haiku
Chopped off the Venus De Milo's arms
"with a mind like that-who needs appendages?"
Dopplar Waves in and out on in/ frequencies
Every time new formats appear-HERE'S DENNIS!
Since 2002,only been e-books for him
Aware his grandchildren lose Pinterest
he scans FACEBOOK for scene survivors
Say he might return if desire rises-so-
COME,KING TIDES/TSUNAMI/TIDAL WAVES!
Even Tiny Stories (Pearls)can defeat the grave!
