...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?"

Bob Dylan's 126th Dream
LIKE, IF THE MAKER OF EXPLOSIVES
gives the monies he made
as some form of reparations
who is to object /if President War Drone on Civilians
takes away the Peace Prize?
And what have books to do with anything?
In a post punk closed down publishing show biz texting world
Where Presidential Candidates use their rest room time to chime on Instagram
and text and tweet is the New Suite.Who Be Me to disparage literate productivity?LET IT BE
There are no Beatles anymore.John Lennon got the bullet not the Nobel bomb.He turned in his MBE.
And even the 60s have few in their sixties to celebrate with Janis and Jimi and Jim gone
only Leonard Cohen remains ,releasing new material on the world's burning stages..
Maybe his novels and stories and poetry might find favor?Perhaps when

he falls down/closer to Heaven.Maybe Zen.!Hallelujah!
