...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 and 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)

CONNOTATIONS
Blue can mean sky/eyes/seas/Picasso's period
Mood /emotion/a form of music/Monica Lewinsky
Each bee's eyes see multiple refractions
Take one prism ,add to context.Are U blue?
Then deep ocean different to sky shallow
Coral reef waters blue different to lagoon/lake
Take any blue and a spectrum of depth ensues
You have fallen into blue /now you see only black skies
Night of punch drunk stars/morning of Cavaliers and flags
When he came from The Blue People/it was more than metaphor
Race had stolen Light and Shade moved in -deep as dark
Could this pigmentation change with age?or will we be blue as ever
Pale,wan,insipid ,thin,diluted,so many mixed tones and hues
you can not tell where blue loses every core value
Decides to assimilate/integrate.Forgets palette and panache

Famous Blue Raincoat.
