...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)

SACRED SHRINES
SHE LIKES BLUE HOLE,I LIKE JACOBS WELL
(We both love water when it flows
She listens while i photograph the waves
that remind us we must pass.She knows
Stonehenge as empty teacup,Avebury as alien landing zone.
Standing stones sing to her-in Cornwall,as in Scotland
where wild wind and wave work bones from older graves
She prefers circles,fires,spirals,dance
Not one for stone monument/more Blessed Springs and Holy wells
Water always called her to answer(so she did
There are no secrets when all is sacred/nothing left to hid
So she will pilgrimage to shopping center as well as cave and well
Every Drop is Precious.So is every story shared.Tell me more..
