...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)


CLOSED SYSTEMS,CLOSING
Space was once.Prairies.Clean air.Plenty.
Fences.Roads.Rail.Space race.Real estate
Only a millionaire can afford to go into space
Only the poor remain between appointments,spaced
Once expanding Universe,BIG Bang,Military Budgets
Now cutbacks,mini-invasions,joint task forces
Once you could walk as far as you wanted
Now-Borders,Guns,Visa,Drones,Passports
Cannot go back in time.It has moved on/moved along
Alone,Grand Father Clock as obsolete as a sundial/Swiss wristwatch
watches Apple iwatches,digital wristbands for fashionology
We exist in parallel dimensions-one waiting for a slow bus,another in gridlock.
None of us have time enough.Nor space,which waits/until we have money,energy and time..

INVEST NOW AND AVOID THE RUSH!
