...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?

ROBOT RIGHTS
THEY HAVE NONE
Like puppets they have creators
who make them according to plan.
They are given Artificial Intelligence/
made as servants of man.Of course
they can process faster than their owners.
Whether they have "consciousness"is another matter.
What makes us human is not organs,appendages,minds-
it is the cumulative evolution that includes all of these in one body. of time
Note how replicants are made to look and act like us.
Imputing rights to a machine is like booking a sunflower for speeding.
It is simply an irrelevant concept.Restore human rights to human beings

And let the machines fulfill their selected functions.
