...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?"

DECLARING NEUTRALITY
money is neutral-
PAPER NOTES AND METAL COINS
we simply ascribe value to
COMPUTERS ARE NEUTRAL
they are programs,pure and simple
prepared to SHARE their MALWARE universally
love is neutral,too-given to the just and unjust
always seeking to add to /not subtract
Earth is neutral,too-admits us as ash and dust
but water is not neutral-it takes on your intentions
and turns black or brown according to your contributions
We are not neutral.We judge,and execute /each other
As in love.As in water.We surf or float or drown.
Ask your body -is it full?-of levity or gravity?

Are you rising up?or falling down?
