...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 Thom'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?"

@THE MUSEUM OF NATURAL&ARTIFICIAL EPHEMERATA
Artists gathered in a vegetarian put luck/with tofu and green beans
and fruit and great relief to be with each other on this day.
For years ,David and Susan had convened a celebration
and welcomed both family and friends -and all who had neither
in their own home,as it danced from high rents in South Austin to Bastrop.
But David died,and both being artists,Susan asked her Museum family
to set up a welcome table for all.We had met before-at more gatherings,
but this was both special and unique.While the tables filled with fine foods,
we listened and spoke with those who we see rarely,if @all.We caught up
with deaths and health problems,age and post-election depression.
One or two were determined to take action to leave this world
a better place for their children and grandchildren.They extended their compassion
to those suffering in pain on the other side of politics."Unless we reach out and love each other,

there will be no world for pot lucks ,or Thanksgiving Dinners.."
