...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?

IT IS NOT EVEN THANKSGIVING
ALL THE SHOPS ARE SELLING XMAS
Shopping Seasons have pre-empted Natural Selection
You can only buy what is being sold
Out go turkeys and dressing-in come chickens with gravy
From Ben Franklin turkeys to white wire deer
What we eat is what we become.I prefer
the salutations of Solstice,the wonders of WASSAIL!
Singing of songs and sharing of poems.Art that barks
And every cat content cultural conversational continuum
I know we change slowly-but time just left /with an URGENT appointment

with an allegedly "New"Year!
