...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?



STAYCATIONS RULE THE ROOST
Bombs in Paris and in London
Ecology destroyed Amazon&Africa
Wars and unrest in the Middle East
   Stay@home,those countries say/stay @home today
So we watch wild-life documentaries
See Paris &London@the movies
Read travel guides and foreign TV
   Stay @home say we,so stay @home we stay
Cruise ships call,but we are all @home
Cheap flights-but then the TSA
bus tours go off the road
  So-stay @home we stay.Stay @home and play
And let those tourists come to OUR town now
We have so many beautiful homes and gardens
Which bloom because we gave attention

   We stayed @home ,my dears.Stayed at home and they came here..
