...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?"


SHE ASKS ME HOW I AGE
I claim denial.-and that Senior's Discount
at every possible opportunity.FREEDOM! has FREE! within
and i seek out whatever possibilities still exist
for mobility within this closed system.I grew up
on EXPANDING FRONTIERS-science fiction Star Trekkie dreaming
Rockets still fall from skies,but now all is privitised(especially profit margins)
As prices rise,i decline.Live on less.Biafra bellied,bloat.
One could dream stick figure thin-not to be!
We are in this @different rates,some accelerate,some brake
A few are evicted from the car.The view is slow from here
Every day is Sunday.
