...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)

WOULD IT REALLY BE SO SPICY NICE
if life were rational and clear/concise
enough to apply theories that work from year to year?
Conflict Theory perhaps?Black Swan Theory ?-yes!
Heisenberg,Heidegger,Heraclitus patchwork blanket bingo!
Stitch cliches in a calendar,add childhood Disney
and a dose of Magical Realism!Aha!~Graphic Novelizations!
Most of my friends are making Memoirs
We watch movies.find them irrelevant to our living lives.
Yet the depiction of imaginary scenarios forestall disasters
Astrologers star simplicities reassure humbly mumbling
Projected data makes a future we may live within
Nothing can assure us the Weather Forecast will be true
Same as fidelity,honesty,authenticity -all may change tomorrow

but who are we to sing our future in?SING anyway!
