...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?

MY MIRROR LIES TO ME
PORTRAIT OF DORIAN GREY
When i look,i see a younger me
This is not what people say.They see
clearer than my fallacies and fictions.
They want to build a better future,
and for this -it will take all of all of us.
Hence dialogue and discussion with those who disagree
Even when words will not heal the rift
Common sense is not common.Wishing will not make it true.
Flat Earth Societies Rule!Science is disparaged(even by scientists!
And do not bring a Bible into a math classroom...
My lecturers listened to me,even when they disagreed
So i extend this as poetry and as courtesy.I do not need to be right
I just need to be.
