...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, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, 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?" 

LAST OF THE COLD FOOL MOON
LOLITA LOVES US
She offers me and Drew /Mexican food
Drew sees that he has a Turtle on his tshirt
Drew's totem is turtle/so he gives his turtle necklace to the young

He may be drunk and buying food
Something makes him stop and listen
He brings his food to the stage as oblation/smiles on

Right near the end,My Thai has run out of shrimp
Open stage reverts to Rolling Stone covers
The gentlest poet demurs from speech

Melanie Rose offers Chai.We do selfies
Poetry in February 2016 is read from an iphone
Food for thought in a South Austin Food Court.

Every Wednesday,we face the silence and say-

THIS IS YOUR STAGE!
