...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?

ACTUALLY, WE DO WHAT WE DO
TO FEEL BETTER IN CONNECTION
Even when Bibles are quoted to separate families
Even when murderers are praised and respected
Even when Bitcoin fraud is endemic and universal
Even when weather turns totally unpredictable
(Seasons seem such an historic event-like Almanacs!..)
So we listen with a sharper ear/to sift wheat from chaff
So we are vigilant for Photoshop and faux news
And learn the many ways of perfidy /and abjure them
While friends say to look for gold among the glitter
We look for water among the plastic/separate
False from True/even when we disagree
Philosophy allows a Form of Light
to Illumine our tiny daily doings
so we feel better about ourselves
without harming,injuring or killing
Sometimes,we fail
