...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?

GATHERING
WHAT WE HAVE IN COMMON
are the times we played together
like a band or an orchestra of common intentions
like a demonstration or OCCUPY
like meeting because we respected each other
like this is always the bottom line-
to love and to respect each other.
In the Great Chain of Being
We all know each other
with One Degree of Separation
We are the ones we call
when we need someone at all
consonant with our optimistic viewpoint
This is you i am talking to
We will meet in a dedicated space
A Sanctuary for Free Speech
where you can say what you believe
and i can listen,watch,wait and witness

to see where we are... in consonance.
