...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?

ALL SHE WANTS TO DO IS READ
ONE LANGUAGE IS NOT ENOUGH FOR HER
She reads and learns in different languages
She takes "foreign"language courses to learn more cultures
She learns Sumerian for the magical incantations
She learns Akkadian for their rituals
She knows the Lord's Prayer in Aramaic
She knows spells cast by shamen and wise women
She is hungry for knowledge
Devours books  to expand her wisdom base
But it is never enough-like GOOGLE digitalises
all those books that are OUT OF COPYRIGHT
She seeks out original papyri,vellum,hand scrawled hieroglyphs
to learn how once our tongues spat spells
and now our eyes must follow lines
She studies exceptions-Arabic ,Japanese,Chinese,Korean
She will never cease from exploring
Her world of words is expanding
There is nothing left-that does not have a name/

known to her
