...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?

ENOUGH
to settle in the saddle of each day
to ride until distance is a dream
to be content with weed and wander
AS IS sold,bought,exchanged,,delivered
OR we can jump on pins
find salvation via pain
set impossible standards
fail and fail again.Choice
is multi-dimensional dolphins-
business is shark efficiency.
Between the two,i prefer angels
both their myth and their efficacy-
those willing agents of optimism
who ground me in the air of joy
whose kindness redeems
everyone and everything
awaits that sense of wonder
which settles in /makes this world
THE ONLY ONE WE HAVE
and we do not own,dominate,possess,control
Just this butterfly moment/and the wings that come
given to everyone who flies in through that birth canal..

WELCOME HOME!
