...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 SEE(WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN
on the surface of the moon
and in orbit round that orb
and this changes everything!
Once,this bone cold ivory rock
spun in space from a poetic distance
Now we have photos and moon rocks
under our immediate gaze.Movies made
incorporating actual space footage.
No longer dare we stare from a poetic distance
Science takes over,presents video evidence
No "man "on the moon.No "green cheese"
Wallace &Grommit replaced by NASA space tapes
Romance always enhanced by an element of distance
O well-perhaps now we can fall in love

with a Mission to Mars...
