...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?"

LET NO MAN THWART THY PROGRESS

Do not be distracted by the bitter glitter of bling
Do not get sucked into the moral morass of confused beings
Do not abandon your only Art @the Gate(thinking it is not worthy!
It IS worthy.You are worth more.Do not be thwarted by mixed motives
By intentions that are neither pure,nor conscious,nor fun
Find what is the core of all-that which is both dynamo and generator.
Straight arrow/know your arrival is intrinsic to your journey
You are here now.You always were.Those years spent looking/and lost
were investments gaining massive interest .Now -You may not be assuaged
You cannot be thwarted.Here is where you are and will be.

It took all your life-just to make it to this moment!ENJOY! BE!
