...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?"

ART 2017
ALWAYS,AHEAD OF OUR AGE
Ever,a perennial.Ally,friend,companion-
torchlight in the darkness-to see with vision and context
Each person has hands and eyes-to share divergence
Tagging,murals,sculpture,tech/art-all add to and inform us
with a perspective beyond all that has gone before.
Influenced via all,adding and amending data
from the complex days we find ourselves in now.
Without art we are cave and fire.With art,we have walls daubed
with hunting tracks and initiation rituals.Time cannot stop art-
bee in amber,dinosaur feather,homeless art,Banksy to Beauty
in our own lives-our homes,our walls ,our inner artist
creating and extending with every brush stroke/every brave failure
to describe this world while living within it-as it (and we)change everything
just by responding to stimuli(like this ..yes..like this..

 
The future of the Biennial.
