...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?"


H P LOVECRAFT vs C S LEWIS
BOTH USED THE TERM ELDRITCH
in quite divergent contexts
H P Lovecraft dealt in otherworldly faerie forms
C S Lewis a Christian traditionalist
Context is everything-to know what words mean
when their meaning lies in context
Now both H P LOVECRAFT&C S LEWIS
have left the building-but we are still stuck
for uses and contexts and meaning
when seeking to explain and communicate
about all the other worlds we are aware of
The arcane world of Capitol Metro vs bike lanes
SUVs vs bicycles,Buses vs trains
Trains vs planes-all these different planes of existence
are part and parcel of ELDRITCH-but none of these
fill all of it...Every OTHERWORLD is ELDRITCH

And that is where we live..
