...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?"

HEARSAY POETRY@GOOD BUY BOOKS
TO OPEN A BOOK
To open a new page
To open a reading in a bookstore
Hello!City Lights!
Hello!Shakespeare&Company!
Austin is rich in Independent Book Stores
So David opens his South Austin door for Hearsay Poetry
Of course,the rest room is next door @Austin Java
And Austin Java closes @9pm
And this Common Wealth of Poets will not be a closed book by Zen
So the bookshelves crowd in,listening-
to the ekphrastic poems prompted by brill art
to the living poems read from Smartphones
to the song dedicated to the Kids in Cages
And all the books on the shelves opened
And they received the sweet vibrations
of secular petitions ,psalms,prayers rising
And we talked outside
and promised to meet again.

Quiet now!All the books are sleeping...
