...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?

QUEENSLAND (SUNSHINE STATE)
THIS EXPLAINS WHY BRIGHT YELLOW RULES
and cheerfulness,positivity and goodwill.too..
Why everybody smiles,and connects and enjoys
the gifts of Old Sol in this young land.
And it explains why John Berry and I got on/
when he wore bright golden /beret and coat
and smiled at the correlating Texas/Australian joke.
Here folk have a liking for joy/what with sun and surf
Optimism outdoors burns brighter when the day is lighter
And the nights are cool as Paradise.Indoors
is air conditioned-come out to live!Let Light give
you more reasons to reach out and enjoy
a State that is sunny one day/sunnier the next..

And you ask me why i choose to express?
