...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?"

EDICULE
WHO OWNS STORIES?
Our primary myth is Jesus.Crucified/Resurrected.
Above his tomb is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Three religions claim interests in maintaining that historical site-
Roman Catholics,Orthodox Greeks and Armenians.They do not agree.
Hence no real upkeep since 1810.In 2008,Greek Orthodox and Armenians brawled.
In 2015,Israeli police shut the building after Israel's Antiquities Authority
declared it unsafe.Soon,necessary repairs will replace broken mortar
and columns will be strengthened.This will take a year to complete.
Meanwhile pilgrims can still pray at the site.Meanwhile,three authorities
find themselves subordinate to a superior authority-the occupation of Myth.
