...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?

PARTITIONING
PART IS NOT W/HOLE
Portion not full steak
This is why i LIKE Buffets-
a range of positive possibilities..
like a house of many mansions
each one with a dominant emotion
LOYALTY in a small room,JOY in a huge one
WARM emotions pickle and percolate
whole COOL feelings keep their distance
It does not matter when truth spills
Someone may get burned.McDonalds may sue.
The range of artillery feelings has extended
beyond the range of attention.What we cannot see
does affect us.Every body is professional now-
vulture,rug rat,snake politician ,road kill...
Each has a MONOPOLY piece to have and to hold
until it is GAME OVER,and we can go back
to ignoring the PERFECTLY OBVIOUS
and trust that those LONG SHOTS might just shatter

all these grass ceilings..
