...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?"

WE EMERGED FROM HINTERLANDS

From those swamps by the edge of each sea
from bays and estuaries-"crucial and critical"
Habitats threatened by industries.Here is where
we flipped from oceans-from seawater to fresh
from fins to gills and lungs.Aquatic life still relies
upon such commingling of elements.Life lives!
Evolves!Devolves!All on the edges and peripheries..
Between the deep seas and our shallow estuaries 
Delicate ecology demands we cede territories
to the continuing  relationships that breed-
let these bays and estuaries be free !
so we can evolve-perhaps return to those seas..

Evolutionaries.Eventually.
