...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?"

Rabbits screaming in fear and pain
YESTERDAY,THE AUTHOR OF "WATERSHIP DOWN"DIED
Anyone who has ever loved the quixotic nature of rabbits
grew up with that book-and maybe moved on to ANIMAL CRUELTY texts
as we are so edible when it comes to companion animals
(Rabbit is a star in French cuisine-less so in American stomachs)
It is less the killing-more the manner of-like cosmetic research
we blind and torture animals so we suffer less.We suffer more
by causing suffering.Long ago,animals may have eaten us..
It would have been for food for self-defense.Now we are mass killers,
making birds extinct in hunting seasons and turning deer into venison.
We are feral omnivores.Our meat diets change the balance of Nature.
Plants and beans cause less damage to environment.We are changing
Maybe we can change before the hormones in cows change us.

"You are what you eat"Would you rather be a cow,a plant or a has-been?
