...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?

COMPOUNDING DISINTEGRATIONS
AGE&HEALTH&ATTITUDE
Roll them up in a blanket and smoke that!
(like Willy Nelson when he finally croaks
or Dylan's voice hacking Frank Sinatra..
Is this a generational issue?Or do the young have different zones?
wherein and whereby teenage suicide,sex and social media figure highly..
Those i know are contemplating slow mortality.Some prepare,others deny.
Most adjust to limited expectations,"senior moments" and impending disabilities.
For some,death is a door  to another plane.And they may want wings.
More renew and review and repair their limbs and mind and muscles
so they might stay both sentient and ambulatory.Cane to walker to wheelchair
is a process they wish to reverse.They resist"old"/take treatments&pills
and make their Bucket List (just in case).There is no "they"
There is only you and eye.What will we do now?
