...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?"


FUTURE PRESENT!
YES! A GIFT!
Arrived like a stork on our doorstop!
What if you are right?
Multiple omnipresent time zones
from which we select as @a TIME SUPERMART
a slice of POSSIBLE PRESENT,
returning UNSATISFACTORY PASTS
and DUBIOUS FUTURES,so all you have
is now.And it is gone.What to do?
No solid foundation to stand upon
Faculties that waver and weave and wander 
in terms of paying attention.And here you are(again!
caught like headlights in a leaping deer.Where will you be now?
All cultures dictate sequence-like foreign movies(it changes)- 
You are part of a cultural mosaic.Your name is called.

You forget what happens ..NEXT!
