...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?



DO YOU REMEMBER
A LINE FROM A SONG OR A POEM
that changed you.You could never be the same.
So many hooks for just one fish.Your mind.Your heart.
Your eyes.Your ears.Once connected,you can never pretend aloneness
Others have walked solitary paths or been in solitary confinement
Others have wept with sorrow and with pain/have changed.
Because something was said in consolation.Caring.Compassion.
A kind word heals wounds deep.A song can awaken
or soft you to sleep.Reassurance in a wild world
may be what we really need.
