...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?"


I NOW SLEEP WITH A MACHINE
THIS MACHINE MONITORS MY BREATHING
Which(for lack of effective practice)-i have been failing
To learn,i plugged in to a sleep study/learned levels
and how monitoring rates of oxygen allows deeper dreaming.
Since this is what i want,i dive in/plug in/turn and switch ON!
and the 2017 of 1967 controls and modulates these basic functions.
I would not know my dreams if not for this machine
Phone calls cut me out of the cloud.I resist.
Sleep is now a job-a duty /to be monitored and weighed
to test the REM against the rest.Doctor knows
I am not the only one-like worldwide diabetes
this will soon be an elder care question-
how much breath can we squander
before the last one?
