...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!!" 

GO FURTHER
Presidential campaigns are premised upon
one person having solutions to problems
millions of us face/and cannot agree upon.
Politics itself is based upon techniques of
attack,divide,exaggerate,conquer
There may not be one person wise enough to rule
All eleven Republican candidates may not combined have answers
Neither might all Democrats and Independent parties.
Issues alone are simply that.Solutions require diplomacy
We have enough serious unsolved social dilemmas
without compounding wars,invasions,attack modes
Right now might be a time to combine
To circle up the wagons and work together.
I vote for co-operation..
