...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?"

BIRD OF A WILDE BOY
Born Edwardian,post Marlon Brando
Reincarnated as Johnny Depp(now even he is divorced
from Reality(he has his own Island)
And he likes Native Americans (even plays Tonto-
a Hollywood fantasy that "never grows up"
Cultural continuity begins as a play(of consciousness
Every Childe's Fable is a Cautionary Tale
which is why young love Lemony Snicket
and vampires and zombies and Dark Legends
Grimm's Fairy Tales  have literary antecedents.
Now TV tales over where Hammer Horror left off-
Vincent Price as Hook,any young boy as Peter Pan.
Even Disney could not wash the loneliness
from red blood sword duels and fear of dreams of death.

"For most of us,there is no second chance.."
