...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?

TUMBLING TUMBLEWEEDS
TO MOVE IS TO LIVE!
To live is to move!
and no metaphor is more plant-based
than tumbleweeds.Seeded then separated
Wind-assisted  by storms and tempests,
they become more than Texas movies.
There is nothing more challenging
than an emotional environment
that changes as you do not change-
that interdependently exists outside your purvey.
If each City were a Desert,consider tumbleweeds
as homeless refugees or itinerant farm workers
Only they do not farm.They simply roll around
Like desert dolphins.Wind farms for Nature.
Round evidence of cycles deeper than farm and planted crop .
"Nevertheless,they persist..."
