...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?

EMOTIONAL JUKEBOX
TO WAKE TO THE SOUNDTRACK
of the movie of your life
When down,play the B side
Affirm your rising up
We all glow through shales and shallows
Sink to the bottom of the ocean
Run out of buoyant oxygen
And Zen/when no bubble enthusiasm inflates
Rely upon borrowed joys to inflate lungs
to speech.To song.To shout-and run
up to the surface like some marine specimen
Doppler Life.Sine wave.Between joy and sorrow-

Calm .A Gain.
