...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?


WHITE BUFFALO MURAL LEADS ME BACKTO SAN MARCOS
AQUARENA SPRINGS LED ME TO SAN MARCOS
Spring fed waters led me back to San Marcos
Three poetry open mics led me to return to San Marcos
An invitation to share poetry on radio led me back
Volunteer based Community Radio KZSM.org welcomed me in
Don the General Manager welcomed me in
Deborah Carter of San Marcos Library welcomed me in
Priscilla on the Control Board welcomed me in
Wade Martin shared his life and poems
Two hours of poetry and conversation
Why poetry?Where?How?For who?
Questions eloped with adequate answers
in a temporary alliance of Word,Dream,Muse
We did not come to conclusions-just beginnings
And all these answers need questioning again
in April/NATIONAL POETRY MONTH 2018..
