...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?"

IN PRAISE OF CHANGE
The traffic will never be as it was once
The village is now a shopping center
Those you knew are now grown up
The genie will not fit into the bottle
This is why we reach out-
with a pen,computer,paintbrush
to renovate the barn of past
with a balm for the living future
We move,and are kinetic
Original the steps we dance
YOUTUBE videos in Mongolia
Art and poetry in Croatia
If you ask,Muse will reveal herself
She has no secrets left to hide
You may think  creativity is foolishness

Ask the wise!
