...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?

ALL ROADS LEAD TO SPIRIT
FROM NEW YORK TO RHODE ISLAND
from rainforest/barrier reef.From oil and gas to renewable energies
from white male patriachy to diverse autonomies
From repeat.Repeat to spontaneity.From walls to welcome.
From corporation to community.Free Libraries.Food not bombs.
From goodwill to gladness.Competition to co-operation.
From anonymity to individuality.From song and poetry.
From victim to self-aware.From fear to shelter.
From small to sustainable.From plastic to organic.
From pasts to present moment.From old &new combined.
From mistakes made and unknown yet to come
From coal to solar /tidal.From waste to recycle.
From here to there such small steps.Taken &taking
to move us upstream of consciousness.Upload &AUM.

To the crossroads of the next point of time!DECIDE!
