...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?

HOW TO GET LOST
FIRST,YOU MUST LEAVE THE FAMILIAR
Say,your room.Your "safe"house.Your street.Your neighborhood
where everyone is a mirror of your benign kindness
Next,you need look for and find your totem-
whether it be deer,bird,dog or stray feral cat.Now follow
wherever that may lead you-to water or a forest,alley or a Dreamstate..
You are entering Alien Territory.Not yours.Foreign.
Now you may feel as fragile as dispossessed,orphans,refugees,homeless
dislocated by the unfamiliar.If you have no totem-just walk into the woods

where you know. no sign nor symbol.Now-GO!GET LOST!
