...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?

LEAF ART BEHIND IN FRONT
BEAUTY ALWAYS WAS
To see is all.To feel is more.
To know is never.More unfolds like tides
that sweep waves in ,then drag weights out again
Unseen trees,until(with city)trees,unseen
Secret places where sound can sleep in silence
Drop of a leaf on a rock.Rain upon leaves.
All that you are is more.Augmented orchestras
waves of bird air,leaf wind,rock silences.
Draw your attention to what is.Temporary is ever
Selective.Evolutionary.You are part of art.She claims
you for her own.First your eyes and mind.Next-your spirit/soul...

for Andy Goldsworthy&Bob Mud.

Artist Spends Hours Arranging Natural Objects Into Stunning Mandalas, Leaves Them For You To Find

Nature is beautiful as it is, but James Brunt is constantly finding new ways to make it look even more appealing. James creates artworks using natural objects he finds around his home in Yorkshire, England, and their intricacy will please both your eyes and your soul.
From rocks and twigs to leaves and even berries, Brunt arranges the materials into spirals, concentric circles, and other detailed patterns. James regularly photographs his work and besides viewing the images on social media, his fans are also welcome to join him as he works. Scroll down to review Brunt's work, and if your eyes are left wanting more, check out these satisfying arrangements of everyday objects by Emily Blincoe.
