...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 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?"

Fruit will pass through you like memories.Sweet.Sweet.
You can not hold on to what you think.(It changes desires like clothes
strewn on a bedroom floor.Before folding up shop-consider immortality.
Cryogenics.Frozen like Disney On Ice or waxed like Mao/Lenin.
There is a difference between living fully and resting as dust,dreams and ashes

The difference is....
