...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?"

OUTBREAKS OF ENTHUSIASMS
Random and unpredictable as weather
There have been recent examples of
both individual and group enthusiasms
which have transcended hobby proportions.
People have been arrested for laughing in airports
especially when directed at TSA or security personnel
Outbreaks of laughter in banks and corporate offices
have led to the evacuation of whole businesses
when folk could simply not take Wall Street seriously.
The election of Bernie Sanders as President
has diminished Trumpitis,and folk have found new outlets
to direct their comic genius.Volunteers have guided young activists
into environmental activities which they now take quite seriously.
Prior to this,the young could not take politics seriously(nor religion)
and this became no laughing matter.Soon,their elders followed..
