...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?

POWER IS LIKE WATER
It can be privitized,profited from,polluted(by self-pride)
and pornography for those distracted by superficialities
Service and responsibility are clearer processes-
Tulsi Gabbard and Bernie Sanders over Rent-A Swamp.
You can wrap water in plastic and sell it back to rivers
You can add fluoride against community wishes
You can make profits via overcharging for "services"
Water is neutral.It has power intrinsically
It is hydro-electricity,Oasis.Spring.Well,River,Creek.Estuary-
the difference between global warming and climate denial..
Water Wars in Palestine.Thirst and borrowed water in Las Vegas.

Best to listen to Eric Burdon.Water is Love.
