...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?" 



POLITICS OF EMOTIONALISMS
"Politics divides-Culture Unites"
What is the mood of our Election Nation?
Peevishness?Hawkishness?Anger?
Presidential candidates Trumpet hate
Evangelicals ignore Christian values -
-"humility,mercy,compassion,grace"
They vow to "crush ,shred,destroy and bomb"
Apocalyptic anger dispaces moderate dialogue
They want to"make the sand glow in Syria"
They forget closed system Earth-
what terrors you unleash on other peoples
come back to bomb your own cities.
Fear is not love.Hate is not a family value.
There were tribes here before us-indigenous
Perhaps we might listen-to what remains

of our Native Wilderness.
