...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?


NATIONAL POETRY MONTH
(Austin International Poetry Festival)
MIDNIGHT TO DAWN@FULL ENGLISH CAFE
with San Antonio represented by our barefoot poet
Houston via Birdman 313.Lubbock by our winning lady from Parsons House.
And youth from McCallum High School
And Chip Ross(now out of hospital)
And Bob Beatle and Joe Broome with PA
And a flow of open micers like Christina &Dane
And round robin and Instant Anthologies
And folk who had to fly to work or to play
Some survived to greet the start of day
This is the way we poets play
After midnight,beginning each new

and unique poetry (Sun)day!
