...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?

ART SAVES SLAVES LIVES
PROPAGANDA KILLS BRAIN CELLS
The art of fascism is dull stones
The sparkle is in Ai WeiWei
The brightness of Banksy
Brave enough to speak truth to power
in iconic images that liberate the watchers
Art lives inside us.Muse moon above and within
Waves of inspiration open doors to escape
There are no keys on the open doors of Imagination
Think of the dull art of Communist posters
Compare and contrast with the life of Banksy
Bravery is a graphic novel that means more than a movie
One that stirs the flames soup of freedom dormant within
TASTE the elixir of change!Watch the effects-when art reveals
Every Emperor-Undressed!

The story of Kim Jong-il's propaganda artist – and how he escaped death to mock North Korea
