...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?

THERE IS A LITTORAL SPACE
between deep oceans that we came from
and the land we walk on today
it is wet and bushy and messy and wild
complex and necessary for life
threatened with "coastline development"
as well as climate disruption/flooding
Marshland is not seen as "productive"use of land
it is seen as "fallow"and "waste"
It remains the filter for multi-species divergence
much like healthy immigration patterns
and evolutionary consciousness..
Think-Nile inundations
Think swamps between Tigris&Euphrates
Think growth of civilizations..think..


Marsh Madness: They Could All Disappear
A new study by a team of scientists led by the U.S. Geological Survey has come to a stark conclusion: All of California’s salt marshes, which are home to many endangered species and help guard against flooding, could be gone within 100 years. The cause: Rising ocean levels, combined with buildings and roads along the coast, will squeeze them out of existence if no action is taken. Authors hope their study will fuel discussion of what needs to be done.
