...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)

MARGINAL MARKETRY
WERE YE TO SEEK THE STORIES OF OUR TIME
Ye might find them referential to other media/works of art
Editing and ekphrasis are twin art forms/like twin snakes Caduceus/DNA
for media bites Tweet /blogs log responses/Bodhi parts serialized
To read a full novel in an Age of Text(ing)is rare
Gold trimmed airport novellas,bodice rippers,Romance Crime Thrillers entice
even the HOW TO DO IT New Age/Middle Age Trance Formational Kits call
fro bullet points and summaries@the end of each chapter .Lazy eyes
will not last the concentration camp required to interrogate ideas
based upon songs of our growing.All art is theft.Steal ,beg or borrow.
To say NOTHING IS ORIGINAL is not.Ozymorons abound.
Reading requires more than analytical skills-comprehension
is a base level skill .You read this as a gift.You write to respond.
Yes-this is a conversation.And now ..it is your time.And your mind says..

Inspired by the song 'Famous Blue Raincoat', a must read!
'Dear Thief’ was one of the best novels published last year. So why haven’t you heard of it? Gaby Wood meets its author, Samantha Harvey
