...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)

YOUTUBE SHOWS IT
TV Reality Shows Expose it
Celebrity Culture encourages it(Kardasians et al)
ROBO-Functioning("beep')
Take Big Brother,where people live in a house
They are total strangers,yet encouraged to "relate"
All the better if sexual or conflict modes are linked
All those SURVIVOR series,where group planning
is ALWAYS disrupted by some individual malcontent
Every Group Has One-a Naysayer "AGIN IT ALL"
Negative patterning and conditioning ,selfishness and Narcissian behavior
does not give us any role models to aspire to
Actual models anorexic,heroin chic ,pale and wan
No Rubens women here-pink flushed with joy of living
50 Shades of Gray perfectly encapsulated office life
The way to the top is to sleep with the boss-
if the boss is a program-sleep with the program!
Read from the script.Do what you are told.
Every Body Here Has Been Bought-and SOLD!
