...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?

ARE WE TALKING MORE(and listening less?
INFORMATION OVERLOAD&CENSORSHIP
Prosecution of whistleblowers&a "need to know"basis
i NEED to know if we will survive this-belligerence
Someone is stirring a hornet's nest.Does not know history.
Korean War ended with an Armistice.We are still fighting this
The losers are the Korean people- and us.They starve while we talk bombs
Nuclear is not a conversation-it is an ultimatum.
"Backdoor diplomacy"is never front page headlines.
if i were in the mood for tumbling despots
i would not have far to look.Ask the Russians.
Then ask the Chinese.Why war fails as social policy.

And what is the difference -between communism and Tweeting anarchy?
