...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?"


 Top 10 U.S. Cities for Pokémon Go
YES!AUGMENT MY REALITY!
But do not displace nor disfigure it
Let others play games!We are here to LIVE!
These hand -held captives have their eyes ransomed
for imaginary figures in our real landscapes.New Dungeons &Dragons?
Of course-distraction/displacement
Obvious-this is not us.We live eye to eye,voice to ear-here!
As sure of each other as any non-robot can make clear..
New games will displace reality like REALITY TV displaced TV..
And who needs more stealing of our tiny time,effort and energies?

 We do not wish anyone to be robbed,hit by traffic etc-may we be clear
Fantasy may be our reality-but our game is being human
We may not win-but we need total attention for true participation!
