...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!!" 

WE ARE REMEMBERERS (of recipes
long forgotten by most folk.Healing comes
from creating that which is pleasing to the palate.
Take our ancestors/elders..They broke trail on hard ground
Planted seeds  and watered gardens.Watched as young crops rose
to be a new wave of delight.DELICIOUS!We honor their courage
by tasting the bounty of their bravery.We gather as they gathered
tentative @first,then ,as numbers rose-new waves rippled harvests.
Long lines of generations,generating ideas into action.
This is how we remember them.This is how the children will remember
Everywhere is a Song of Origin.We are all moving cycles
There is no ending nor completion.Just this dance of random ingredients

making the Good,the Beautiful and the True/palatable..
