...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)


DIRECTION IS ONLY WHERE YOU CHOOSE
WHEN HALF THE WORLD ARE REFUGEES
and every body is from somewhere else
Yet still the only Esperanto is Eckankar Dream Travel
Astral and Astros merge in a team effort to subvert all paradigms
China's bicycles become SUVs/her Confucian villages flooded dams
Philosophy is benched under ECONOMICS.Professors in brothels of think-tanks.
Reference not any flowers growing-more the harvest of blood sports
When eye walk outside,the heat index wins.Air conditioning won the West.
The Fire Next Time is in California.Still-water parks ,golf courses
Dreams of floating Arabian icebergs.Alaskan tourists.Chill Coke.
The IDEA of Ideas has progressed beyond Plato to a Greek economy
Puppet masters manipulate debt to foreclose on futures.Student debt forever

until each nation has a credit card -with a strict limit.Bilderbergers..Busted.
