...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?"


VARIE  TEA  EQUALI  TEA  
A  LACK CR  TEA
CELEBRATING THE FALL
I never liked pomegranates anyway!
and not to keen on snakes-but wisdom?YES!
Books over guns,FOOD NOT BOMBS!
Libraries are a love affair with learning/
de facto community learning centers..so
When i hear that global warming will reduce coffee output-
that the "bean belt"of Columbia,Mexico,Brazil,Ethiopia and Vietnam
is considering investing in a "gene bank"to preserve genetic diversity in Arabica coffee
that "variety catalogues"exist to show beans "pest resistances"/yields and ability to thrive
that a "sensory lexicon"will evaluate new coffee bean varieties to ensure palatability
i realize even i will have to adapt..In the light of future lack,poetry may have to return to Libraries
rather than coffee shops,and we may simply have to return

to drinking cups of tea.Slowly.Sip this one..
