...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?"

IF WE ARE NUMBED DOWN / DUMBED DOWN

If we are not aware of what has happened before
If we are not intuiting what is happening now
If we shut down to what our future holds
Our dreams are seeds of future harvests
Our pasts are Parables and Portents
Our present is a powerfilled panorama
in which our eyes see things as they really are
Our ears hear sounds they have not heard before
Our whole body awakens to a new understanding-
that both dreams and nightmares are real
and we choose which scenario we wish to engage
All things are happening @all times.Voice is choice
Sing your way through each asteroid day
Each meteor morning,every planetary evening.
We are both part and apart/life and art
We matter-but we are more than matter.
We are focused will and intention,aligned in harmony

with every other particle consciousness,contradicting us.
