...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?"


LIVING IN AN INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE
Mindy Reed invited me to live @Recycled Reads
so i do,when Open Mikes are open
to every person hungry to learn
from within the covers of a BOOK.
There is something clear and smiling
about the welcome bookstores offer
Susan Post of BOOK WOMAN
has kept her book flag flying
as has MALVERN BOOKS,RESISTENCIA
MONKEY WRENCH and BRAVE NEW BOOKS etc
Little lights that open minds to new discoveries
Sites of PAPERBACKS PLUS and other ghost bookstores
Today,Lone Star Literary Life ranked Austin #1
"bookish destination"in Texas.Cult of Book is growing
Ebooks are being abandoned as folk return to texts

and every body knows what type of learning ..is best!
