...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?"

WHAT LIVES WITHIN SKIN?
SMALL MILLION MOLECULES
more than night sky stars
of course they share consciousness
of course they communicate
of course they have their own lifecycles
we are sizeist Goliaths.We stomp and stamp
not knowing how our own skin feels
WE claim Emotions as our Empire
"Rage,Rage -against the Dying of the Light"
Skin knows-it flakes and falls off,gets flabby
flops around like a fish on the floor
Allows us our perceived Mastery of All
Yet,if you added up the holes in us-
in eyes and ears and skin particles
They would also be Another Country
Because we cannot see,we will not
Because we cannot hear,ditto
What is within us rules us

Heart and lungs,kidneys,liver-then brain..
