...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?

ON WATCHING THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT
@FIRST,THE HALLS WERE FULL
with MPs standing to be heard.Reminded me
of a private school on one side,and public education the other.
Cheap shots and sniping all the rage.Cartoons and stereotypes
stood up when allowed and postured and pontificated ,albeit briefly.
As numbers and attention dwindled,it became a thin demonstration
of the inefficacy of representation.Ministers toadied and goaded ,
their accents revealing origins and class.So easy to criticize!
I almost felt sorry for Theresa May.And for the British people.
And the Scots.And Irish.And the Welsh..
And then we heard Trump had cancelled his visit
And the streets were alive with democracy again!
