...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?

THE DEPARTMENT OF MEANING IS EMPTY
Like Iraqi Department of Antiquities upon invasion
Like refugee camps outnumbering local populations
Like rivers on fire and beached whales.We may be dolphins or sharks.Or the fish they both eat.
Sharks need a better P R Agency.Dolphins just sex and swim and smile.We seek Meaning
even when emptiness is not enough,and context justifies nihilism/totalitarianism/dictatorships.
Even Popes can be wrong.Presidents in error.We make mistakes.
Evolution is still a Theory(like Gravity)that can be negated by circumstances.
Dreams are a doorway and a window to another world.Half our life asleep!

When we wake up-which is the Real dream?A-The one we believe in..
