...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?" 

GIVING THANKS
FOR OUR FOUNDING FATHERS
For the Myths of Patuxet (Plymouth)
For Squanto and the Wampanoag
Even for Massasoit!  For capricious history
that gives us fat turkey with cranberry sauce
Translates into Shopping in Mecca Malls for Baal and Mammon
For Consumerism and NO SHOPPING DAY
For GO VEGAN @THANKSGIVING and pardoning selected turkeys
For the release of wild turkeys into wilderness
and the release of all myths apart from GRATITUDE
as we zoom past Black Friday,Cyber Monday
with only 25 shopping days to Xmas..
Dare we ask why and how Solstice and Yule 

became suborned by Mega-Malls?
