...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?"


BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW
We blame Monsanto.After all,Zika outbreaks
are largely in Third World countries,where spraying of crops
results in microcephacy in babies.Yet now,110 pregnant women in Florida
have tested positive for the Zika virus(Aedes Aegypti)
Do not ask if climate change has resulted in proliferation of mosquitoes!
Now why $1.1 billion of your taxes will be used on aerial spraying .
Nor why the Gates Foundation has a plan to distribute "good"mosquitoes
in Chinese take-out boxes ,to mix with the Zika mosquitoes
to outbreed the virus.Chemical warfare.Yes! DEET  may have other side-effects
especially when sprayed in water supply areas,or near vulnerable children.
Much of the Third World is exposed to unsafe water supplies(mosquito breeding areas)
The earth is heating,with visible consequences.Antidote to mosquitoes?

If rats and cockroaches survive our chemical sprays,what next?
