...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)

THE LAST OF THE SUMMER
HEAT STILL 100 DEGREES
Hurricane in the Gulf awaiting-
Florida drowns first-next comes Texas
School gathers up the little ones
Sales are a go-go(or non-no!
Waiting for a cool political change
from the heated bullets of exchange
Emotions top barometers
Sunburn,sunblock,sizzle
Steam rises even in the early morning
Slow siesta afternoons
Waiting for a new moon
Old Sol burning for an energetic change
Come on stars!Start shining!Night burn and cold
will be sweet relief-Come!Creek!Come River!
Drought hearted days-let water deliver necessary healing


Let us dive right in!Change EVERYthing!
