...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)



"a room of one's own"
THE THIRD SPACE
You have home-and work-you also need another space
where you can just relax-a sanctuary-a Library-a Coffee Shop
where poetry ,dreams,music ,art and emotions can flow in and out
like breathing influences and sharing outcomes.Imagine if you will
that this wild and willing world is such a space,and you can find
your own among the throngs.There may be compatible people
You might strike up a conversation.Language might unlock you
You may meet mirror eyes and reflective moods.You never know
unless and until you go-so ..what are you waiting for?
Leave these lines and find your own!They await you
in a space that is no secret when you find it

And becomes your public/private place to be/when you do.You are..
