...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?

PREFERENTIAL VOTING
WHETHER TIME IS AN APPOINTMENT
or a fishing line thrown into the deep
Whether illusions mask their own illusions
or Narcissism is a basic human need
Whether we rationalize our priorities
to diminish the opportunities for others
Whether the investment of time,energy ,attention
is enough to consider life on this (or other)planets
Whether photography stops crime or simply records it
Whether that eclipse was filmed for the meteorite
Whether Zimbabwe/Nigeria will recover from military corruption
Whether China will keep "disappearing"writers
Whether Egypt will ever be worthy of its many pasts
Whether any identity is random identity theft
Whether metaphor will illumine us sufficiently
Whether history will repeat repeat indefinitely
Whether Washington weather is better than New Mexico
Whether we are robots of free will/unable to re-program
Whether we read the signs,symbols,auguries in time
or if time went on strike like FBI informers
while claiming to be air traffic controllers
scrying the futures markets while selling past panaceas
Uncertainty knows.She is not SHARING,nor LIKING on Facebook

And the Mad King Tweets nonsense again.
