...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?

IT CHANGES AS IT STAYS THE SAME
McDONALDS "MANAGERS"ARE CORPORATE SERFS
UBER /LYFT drivers are not independent contractors
Texas (Government)hates Unions,calling itself a "RIGHT TO WORK "State
You cannot ride an electric scooter on Capitol grounds.
Million dollar high rise condominia dwarf our State Capitol building
Barton Springs is closed for flood and industrial runoff.
Zilker Park is closed to tax paying public because for-profit  ACL/SXSW
Yes-we had a BOIL WATER ordinance due to poor water quality
What was once WATERLOO is now AUSTIN has become GRIDLOCK TOWN
ABANDONED SCOOTER CITY,ETERNAL ROADWORKS CENTRAL
Failed Public Transport.Blessed Buddhist homeless under bridges
hustled and haunted by Neighborhood Associations(NIMB angry)
APPLE building in our only watershed.Happily,AMAZON withdrew..
And tie-dyed T shirts and thin guitarists ,evoking  a little Austin

smiling as it claims to be"THE MUSIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!"
