...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?

IF YOU ARE JAZZ
YOU ARE ALIVE&WELL
You have stories in sound to tell
You may have a personal hell
Yet the Heavens you scatter like rich bank notes
Make the world around you float
You enter a higher state of consciousness
when you improvise your life.
The only rule is-STAY ALIVE!
Once you leave this life
a new one will be created over yours
Sculptures and statues that do not sing
just connote the brilliance you had once upon a rhyme
The only First and Last Commandment is always
STAY ALIVE!IMPROVISE!
