...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?

ROOM FULL OF SKIES!
UNFRAMED CLOUDS DRIFT OVER OUR OCULUS
Sky is wider than our eyes.Horizons hover 100 degree heat wave.
Pilgrimage to visions made for gentle.Soft as blue and high as Light.
Perhaps black frames us.Deep and dark as space and night.
Perhaps the colors we see are projections upon skies
that hold only the dust of times past.African dust .Allergies.
We are histories and stories made for visions sharing.
Unframe and unroll us in your eye's horizons.
Look UP!We are moving in waves
Sky is a sea of time passing
Clouds.



Hope to see you all there next Saturday night! 7pm on the 26th at the Georgetown Art Center will be our opening reception for WIDE OPEN, with my talented fellow Austin artists Rebecca Bennett Artworks and Shawn Camp. This is going to be a spectacular exhibit!
