...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)

SMALL
WE ARE TINY IN THE TUNE OF DREAMS
Grain of sand on a cosmic beach
Little time,and space and distance
defines us as provisional and threatened
Worlds away/other worlds play
perhaps unaware of our unawareness
Hubble and Tesla and Einstein connect us
to worlds beyond and inside of us
We are tiny in the tune of dreams
And yet-our little planet sings!


This photo by the Hubble Telescope of the Andromeda Galaxy, our nearest sister galaxy, taken on January 5, 2015, will drop you to your knees as you view close-up the hundreds of millions of stellar objects, star clusters, and the nucleus. If you need a reality check, to remember how small and insignificant our star, the Sun, is in this context, and how miraculous it is that the Earth supports life, and that you are a part of it all, consciously viewing and comprehending, then take a look!(says GORDON McGILL)
