...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?" 


INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AUSTIN
EVERYTHING IS TRUE!(ESPECIALLY THE HYPERBOLE!
Recently,we had elections where hardly anyone voted
This meant the Majority party was Passivity,Inertia,Apathy
while we Bright Happy Few wished to Celebrate with Poetry,Art,Music and Laughter!
So @our POETRY OF THE FUTURE,amid occasional raindrops
when a predicted downpour kept most logged into indoor Facebook
we concocted a NON-Gunpowder Plot!-to Unilaterally Declare-
THE LAUNCH OF THE INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AUSTIN!
Citizens can no longer afford to actually LIVE in South Austin
so their Citizenship would come from ACTIVE PARTICIPATION on the poetry,music,art stage
