...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 "GO" BAG
SAY YOU ARE LEAVING-
Home,broken love,burning house,emotional stress
What will you pack in your TO GO sack?
A can opener for all those cans of tuna and vegetables
A wine bottle opener(and bottles of wine as well)
Clothes of course-trousers,underwear,shirts,coat,shoes,socks
And then it gets harder-as you will have to carry your world on your back
You learn what it means to be a traveler/a refugee/a Romany..
And then you ask yourself-why am i carrying future trash
Why not pack my emotions in the TO GO bag-
add some LOVE,a little COMPASSION-a dose of POSITIVITY
and meditate upon being a breatharian
(at least for a moment of meditation)
And then move on out into a changed world

And change..
