...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?

RADIATION.LEUKEMIA.SELLAFIELD.MARALINGA.FUKUSHIMA
Caesium,ruthenium,strontium,uranium,plutonium
Before we look @your casualty list,we need to examine your language
"Business"is equated with "Development"and the "General Good"
"Activist Groups"are seen as "troublemakers"(Like whistleblowers)
Journalists are tolerated so long as they do not become "issue-based"
And newspapers still have empty headlines and Page three distractions
Before we ask the names of those dead from cancers
we need to know the WHYs and WHEREFORES..
If a link can show nuclear power plants to be unsafe,
then that one near New York needs to be closed immediately ..
In fact,all should be closed.Unless you wish
more proof of a link between radiation and leukaemias/bone cancers..
More casualty lists..(like truth)
