...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?"


PABLO NERUDA & KAHLIL GIBRAN!
PABLO WAS HEARD TODAY@WINDSOR PARK LIBRARY
Parts of him resonated from previous Austin readings
Peru loved him in Spanish,but admired these English  translations
Il Postino  was evoked,Anonymous CAPTAIN'S VERSES(and his ODES)
So well versed and beloved,perhaps another selection?
Past Poetry Project brings poets and poetry back to life!
Children in Lebanon are taught Kahlil Gibran from an early age
They love his verses,stories,philosophy,and sense of wonder
THE PROPHET is recited @many future weddings
In his original language(just like Neruda)he sings!
To be beloved of your community is the mark of a true poet...
In his original language(just like Neruda/he sings
Tonight@Native South Food Court,Kahlil was listening! 
Perhaps the lovers of Pablo and Kahlil might organize a joint (ghost )reading  
Past Poetry Project @Native South Food Court stage?
WHAT A DOUBLE FEATURE PRESENTATION!!
