...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?"

WE ARE THE BAD GUYS NOW
LADY BIRD LAKE FESTIVAL
Once again,Mr Habitat(Bill Oliver)
assembled artists,poets,musicians together
to serve the imagination of the East Side of Austin
He mentioned to those assembled how they(the people of East Austin) had organized
to close down the Holly Power Plant (of noise and mess disturbing their habitat)
how they had also organized to move the power boat races(of  noise and mess,disturbing their habitat)
how their access to Lady Bird Lake(a wildlife habitat in the heart of Austin
was a vital community resource,as well as being home to heron&egrets,turtles &fish
Austin Fire Department reinforced safety near water("TURN BACK,DON'T DROWN")
Worm farms and Compost Art reinforced links with the very earth beneath us.
Elementary school students performed their musical and vocal skills for each other
and children danced,and played,safely and securely with elders
who shared ways to relate to their environment
East Austin,specifically-THEIR habitat!.Each went away with art and play
Each will remember the surprise of blue heron in gray skies/white egrets parked in green trees
They will learn to remember to love where they are-to live safely,securely,harmonically,artistically

in the future we are bequesting them.
