...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?"


THERE IS NO "OTHER"
JUST "SISTER""BROTHER"FATHER/MOTHER
Other leads to another which leads to distance
Every circle is connected
see!ripples in a pond/even when stone sinks
under the weight of its own gravity
it sends out ripples/circles
to the outer limits of her known universes
(or at least the edges of its little pond.
Frog knows.Ask Basho!Water and she are old allies 
Without water-we are parched(thought/drought creek 
With flow,we are Tai Chi/and we
become the yoghurt worthy of each Sufi...
