...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)

USED TO BE CALLED"SUGAR DIABETES"
now an epidemic of dietary woes
Indigenous ,Spanish,poor-for whom sugar is food
When young,we were rewarded with sweets
We did not know then.We know now(too late
Spun sugar "fairy floss"i sold at Exhibition
Later diagnosed Type 2-sedentary,overweight
still chocolate addicted and still learning
10 teaspoons of sugar in one can o Coke
Corn syrup in most canned foods.
Trendies buy "Mexican coke"with REAL sugar
Slim ,thin,gym folk.Irish balloon Thom.
Floating in sweet fantasies.High above love.
One day,balloon boy will return/to learn
We are not only what we eat
We are also what we retain after digestion

NO NO needles!Can that candy!
