...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?"

DIFFERENT TO (what comes to you
Big data flows in to tiny ports(auras/shakras
Information overload/so selectively/according to
what has been received before.You judge and be judged.
We are all under continuous assessment/review.
YOU'RE FIRED!heard more often than YOU'RE HIRED!
Emotions cloud .Color.Convince us of prejudices
We vote according to our fathers/families/pasts
We change only under duress.Success flickers/falters
finds us indecisive in the starter's stalls.Afraid to change
If it worked before..Can we have another Referendum?

MORE AWAITS TO BE DISCOVERED/UNCOVERED
Like Nibiru.UFOs.Bigfoot."Here Be Monsters"
The truth is still OUT THERE.We just need a bigger telescope.
Measurement is a criterion of itself alone.What cannot yet be seen
changes with tomorrow's headlines/astrology/Weather Channel

QUANTIFICATION IS FOR PRODUCTS
Engineers and measurements.Architects
Only poets ,mad folk,philosophers ask '"BUT..WHY?"

DEMOGRAPHICS IS A SCIENCE
For politics and advertising.You and i
evade data.They seek to capture us
with facial capture,fingerprints,biometrics-
they have yet to read Phillip K Dick
