...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)

WHO OWNS UP?
DIRECTIONAL FENG SHUI
One crab who refused the sea
Black space with holes punched
Light is an outlaw for the Dark
So,Blue-how long are you staying?
That eye color is universal baby-
until each changes their way of seeing things.
Blue as Neruda on Isla Negra
Blue as Catullus and Cicero
Banished for being divergent
before the movie was released on Blu-Ray!
Our grandparents had no color!KKK
and Black&White morality screened
D W Griffith re/Birthed Eisenstein's Nation
It took Hollywood to Miami Blue
All color is advertising.Illusion blue skies.
Depth (of field)and darkness await
when we leave attitude and judgements
one crab alone on a beach
feeling blue sea Tsunamis..
