...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)

Einstein's Impossible Measurement...
DISTANCE BETWEEN EMOTIONS
Gaps between teardrops
Loss and the ensuing hole
White holes without edges
The speed of forgotten time
Being in multiple states of mind
A sandwich short of a picnic
A kangaroo loose in your top paddock
What you do not see(macro/micro/lycra)
What connects us (apart from air and need
The impossibility of accuracy
Our determination to GOOGLE map
with blank spots for PROHIBITED SPACES
The failure of language to communicate
The failure of silence and science
The failure of failing  to measure
what is and what is knot-

(Gordian)(Damoclean)(Scout)
