...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?" 

WHEN THE WAVE OF TODAY MEETS THE ROCK OF TOMORROW
ALL THE YOUNG DUDES SING "SORROW"
Loss compounds(not just on Stock Exchange)
China Doll is broken.Hold the Oil,please!
Military spending vs food production(Arms &The Man)
Every song of doves stolen by hawks
Here there used to be a stand of trees
Now we have no songbirds(except in prison
Expanding Universe meets City Limits
There are Homeless on the moon
and on the ISS,a member of ISIS
studies rock formations.Tower of London
French Guillotine/now the blasting of Buddha
Black Masked men in new White Toyotas
Plastic oceans.Germ warfare.We split atoms
then arguments,now we split us."Make Syrian sand glow"

Jesus on their weapons dropped by drones.
