...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?

SUNDAY TENNIS
WE WOULD MEET @THE DICKINS HOUSE
(i cannot remember if the tennis court
was at or simply near their home-but
we had many local courts then,and tennis
was a National Sport..(Rod Laver,Fred Stolle,Rod Emerson-
they were my heroes..i had their autographs
and would see them play @Milton Tennis Courts..
But,locally,we would play on Sunday afternoons-for fun.For friendship
Barry Dickins a famed local writer .It was his little brother/my friend
Their mother would make tea and scones to welcome us all
Those Sundays slow and smiling and sunny
Even poems,songs and stories cannot conjure up such sweet and simple sunshine times

But you can try..VISUALIZE..Now try the scones for size.Sugar in your tea?
