...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?" 

TYPES OF INTELLIGENCE
like children,i use models
for each style of reasoning-a mode-
political,sociological,anthropological,
historic,legal,-even computer modeling
So one applies plumbers glue to one problem
Elmer's glue to another.To link disparate data
one can think like an engineer-or a songbird
when it comes to the making of nests
Role play home builder architect  or
Bibical wall breaker Joshua&those walls of Jericho
Archetypal thinking(metaphor)chooses and distinguishes
between the building of walls-or bridges/doors-or prisons
To re-engineer social problems may take the wings of songbirds

and the lyrics of song writers-or just a different mode of applied glue..
