...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 THE CORE OF OUR SPINNING EARTH
is Robert Frost or Walt Whitman's Sampler
Fire or ice,cheese or chocolate
strawberry or vanilla-we will never know

Stillness may be@the core of us-or Sufi dancers
We must move to find out
When we do,are we still?-or still moving?

Ice in space,fire from one nuclear sun
dark holes,dark matter-ILLUMINATE!

Since the 60s our minds are spaced
2015-our computer heads are in the Cloud
Matter is not what we are made of-
we are holes stitched together with skin

Beliefs are only facts floated higher than evidence
This is where we are going.Bye,science!
