...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)

WHETHER WE KNOW IT OR NOT
WHETHER WE ADMIT IT
we are in this picture.
Whether we painted it,drew it,directed it
we all have roles.@times the scripts seem improvised..
The sets slipshod/the plot &direction unclear
Others have a perspective different to ours-
they may have been here longer/deeper/brighter/braver
or they might have a clue where our life is heading
because we are intertwined.A suggestion here-support there-
pilgrims on the path stopping at a drinking fountain.
Anonymity no longer exists.Warhol's "15 minutes"is now a FACEBOOK status update.
You are both known and will be forgotten.While we are here,
come in..have a cup of tea..settle down..relax

We may be in this scene for a very long time..
