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 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)

Air(always in circulation-like rumors
Water,unless stopped,road blocked,dammed,privitized in plastic
Earth -until quake,frack,mineshafted,dug,hollowed ,stripped
Metal-Vulcan,Blacksmith,Thor of Asgard
Wood-Multispecies replaced via pine match stick plantations
until cage,kennel,fence,limits,laws, lower vibration
Abolish zoos,circuses,animal testing,experimentation,cosmetics,aquaria
Still find dead whales on sonar submarine beaches
Space has run out,screaming.Time is jewelry/and a magazine.
We visit the past to see who we were before-green,golden,glorious
Now drought,rations,gridlock,heat,dust,carbon,denial,parking
Make a grocery list of Petitions to Sign Before Breakfast
Speed of change negates micro-goodwill enterprises
Drill,Arctic!Forget,Gulf of Mexico/Rainforest,Amazon..
They will make a color movie.It will be a documentary.History Channel.
