...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?

WHY IS IT SO?
Because of the cost of living.
Because time is money
Because sensory overload
Because of urban cultures
Because limiting social interaction
Because of fear.Because of withdrawal
Because of white earbuds and headsets.
Because we are accelerating in demands and priorities
Because people need people and avoid people
Because country means slow,amble,saunter.
Because city means rush.Fast.Faster.
Because we may not recognize the differences
Because (in each moment)we choose where we want to live

Why People Walk Faster in Cities Have you ever noticed that you move faster in cities? Here's why.
