...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?"

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE
WE HAD JAMMED TOGETHER BEFORE
But tonight on the front porch/he was accompanied
by two beauteous maidens,both fresh from Moscow
One had traveled to Australia last year(Brisbane,Sydney,Melbourne)
Both were fresh,clear,attentive, interesting (and interested)
They looked deeply into the poetry books,and understood
They listened ot the poems,and cared
They went back in to join the jam,as we talked...
And the Russian soul is poetic,and deep
Aware of pain and pleasure ,emotions wrapped in words
Both smiled like a kiss,and danced away with their musician
Having given the gift of clear and conscious attention
And gaining the respect between two cultures/two peoples/two nations..
