...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?


BEYOND THE MEME
META- IS THE NEW IRONY
When emojis can be sarcastic
and Twitter Tweets a taunt
Memes edit out significance
to interpretative (online)dances
Political,cultural,personal-
same data gives different/ divergent responses
What you see is not what you were shown
It is the magic of appearances...
Editorially speaking.Memes are lightning flashes
Brief illuminations of possible metaphors
Follow the Image to its conclusion
Make Your Own Uni-Verse
Watch as others flame you out
by seeing darkness in a different light...
