...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)

NATURAL SYNTHETICS
BIO-ENGINEERING ARTISTRY
Recognizing and affirming innate harmonies
Flowing with the bend of blood cells and the bright of red
Knowing pulse beat and all chambers of your heart open
Have you never seen it on TV?That big bulging inner mystery
without whose active beat /we would not be complete.
Artificial hearts and organs ,artificial blood
Artificial limbs,prosthetic organs made on a 3D printer
Soon we may supplant the natural with a bio-engineered program
Frontiers of ART and SCIENCE merge-like when they exhibited corpses
either as mummies or as plastified  bodies("real"bodies)in Art Galleries/Museums.
Artificial Intelligence may soon challenge us to know the difference between Art and Life
Artists,bio-engineers and biologists will smile and say.."Today=they are One and The Same"
 

Artists create with living organisms, a bioengineer and a biologist parse the ethics of synthetic biology, and a reporter takes a crash course in bio-hacking.
