...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?


WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT AUSTIN?
Not the music which plays everywhere
Not the concerts that take over our City Parks
Not our buskers,pedicabs,skateboards,scooters
All of these come from somewhere else
And can be seen and tasted almost everywhere
Barton Springs remains our Crown Jewels
subject to floods ,agricultural runoff,sewage and trash
Still emitting clear clean water every minute of every day
The love and care these Springs need is constant and continuous
Much like Jacobs Well in our Hill Country/or Comal Springs
or Krause Springs,or Hamilton Pool
in fact,water in a Texas desert
is our only reason
for being here
