...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?"

HUBERTUS BIGEND
Fiction becomes fact when you believe it.
Science Fiction as Futurism in film and fashion
Hence new BLADE RUNNER,AVATAR,TERMINATOR
Vision is a franchise sold on familiarity of icons
STAR WARS sold as year marketing bookends
much as LORD OF THE RINGS/HOBBIT to exhaustion
"Mama,We Are All Futurists Now!"Tomorrow shocks today
with Mall shootings,Airport Manchurian Candidates/conspiracy theories.
Whatever you market has a demographic.Whatever sells can be resold.
Poetry in advertising,and as subliminal marketing.Prophecies ,Numerologies-BUY!
Health tips and film fashions make New Celebrity Status.Young Rappers Know-
they imitate Jay Z and his baby Kanye-or Kim and Nicky.Headlines Gossip-
new baby/marriage/divorce/love/sex tape-whatever sells-recycles.
That riff you are hearing through this-belonged to Bruce Sterling&William Gibson
They stole it from headlines and movies and advertising
You can sell this line of merchandising again.
Just change the name at the head

Like corporate takeovers..
