...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?

YUSAN YUN DONE
Hong Kong was Independent of China..once
To seek freedom in choosing elected representatives,
students and Professors  went to the streets.
They defended themselves against riot police with umbrellas.
They were arrested and charged with various offenses.
Now the leaders are jailed-Professor of Sociology Chan Kin-Man(age 60),
and Law Professor Benny Tai(age 54).This has disheartened those seeking
a degree of autonomy from Chinese control of local elections.
The "Umbrella Movement"has been crushed,just like OCCUPY.
Now we have only YELLOW JACKETS as symbols for freedom.
And Hong Kong is crushed by the weight of Chinese autocracy..
