...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?" 


YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE YOUNG
Nor in altered states-to move away
from all you knew before.To walk out your door
walk,cycle,motorbike,car,van.hike your way
across any continent in which you take your stay.
This urge to GET UP AND GLOW! is eternal
or as long as you have a skin to move within
You can leave whenever you want to
Borders demand visas and passports
but there are forests and rivers as yet unseen by you
They will wait until you feel the urge
to rise,to open your door-to close it behind you

as you voyage-into the New..
