...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 within 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?" 

HEAVY METAL?  ELEMENTARY!  =LEMMY!
YOUR PERIODIC TABLE IS PERIODICALLY RENOVATED
by the discovery of short lived radioactive elements in search of a name
UNUNTRIUM113,UNUNPENTIUM 115(both metals-both heavy,and short-lived!
UNUNSEPTIUM 117(a metalloid),UNUNOCTIUM118(a noble gas)
You already have COPERNICIUM 112 (Cp to Cn)and a trust that the 7th row
from 119 and beyond (120-126)-will lead to an ISLAND OF STABILITY
Some wish to call these "new"elements JAPONIUM,RIKENIUM,NISHINARIUM
after the people and places where they were discovered.
You already have UNUNPENTIUM 115,OSMIUM 76,SEABORIUM 106
as well as DUBNIUM105,NEODYMIUM 61,CAESIUM 55 and LITHIUM 3
So why not Lemmy?Heavy Metal hero whose life span was as brief as these elements?
He is more than those NOBLE GASES (Helium,Neon,Argon-which he may have inhaled..
He represents that dream of DIMITRI MENDELEEV,who first conceived our Periodic Table
New elements will soon be found-but why not honor our greatest Heavy Metal Element-LEMMIUM!?
SIGN THE PETITION.!
