...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)

PILLS AND CARDS
ANSWERS IN A BOX
Take the pill!Take a card(any card!)
"One pill makes you larger,the other makes you small..
and the ones that mother gives you won't do anything @all"(Jefferson Airplane)
""So go running for the shelter of that mother's little helper .."(Jagger/Richards)
Trucker pills,party-popping pills,contraceptives ,antibiotics,recreational and prescription pills
If it comes in the form of a tablet-TAKE 3 TIMES A DAY.Forget the side effects-
credit card bankruptcy,shopping therapy,plastic addiction.Slap that plastic down
and CONSUME!(yes,consumption was also a disease/one for which there is no pill-
unless it is a sugar pill,a placebo-some Stevia laced little white tablet
that takes away the pain of consumer envy .Just as homeless roll out shopping trolleys
full of detritus,we take the side-effects of authorized purchasing power /high interest rates

bills that tower over tiny incomes,until all we can say is"GIVE PILLS A CHANCE!"
