...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?"


TRUMP TOWER CLIMBER
SAVIOR FIXATION
is advertising for our age-
NEW!IMPROVED!WINNER!
finds demographics that short circuit  
these tempestuous times.We have seen this before- 
when journalists get "embedded" and then bribed
or simply disposed of @editorial level.Politics is not show business- 
but it tries to be,stealing songs from recalcitrant songwriters, 
heat seeking donations from Hollywood hacks, 
and pushing up ratings on networks otherwise showing Olympics..
Weimer Republic had outbursts of opera,film,poetry and plays
before fascism brought labor camps and Volkswagon. 
Trillions for weapons-none for poetry.
By the time we learn the con,another savior will be on TV

promising walls,wars ,weapons-to make us feel so STRONG>
