...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)

instinct?
CAT PEOPLE KNOW
Dog people ?No!
Horse folk?Maybe...
Rabbit and bird people?
Dig and fly ,scratch and flap
Cat Independence!Cat Naps!
Apart from when out through our cat flap
Then back.Then out .Then back.Cats
are like that.Annoyingly singular.No type typical.
Cat will surprise you !with claws and scratch
Just when you did NOT expect that!
Even after you bribe with pet ,cuddle,massage,food,drink
cat will still turn in an eye blink
Your life depends upon their instincts
The hunt is on!your cat is gone...
 
rare cat does.
Cats are the world's most popular pet--and they don't love us back.
