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 is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom'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 with in 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 not indeed!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

My memories have been replaced by movie images
CITIZEN KANE instead of Donald Trump
THE SEARCHERS instead of Jeb Bush
BREATHLESS ?Hilary Clinton
WINGS OF DESIRE?=Bernie Sanders!
THE SEVEN SAMURAI-Perry,Cruz,Huckabee,Christie etc
like Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs/each makes a fraction of required
Hollywood the true capital of America.Ronald Reagan actually began STAR WARS
Politicians quote pop lyrics as anthems and refrains in their campaigns
Neil Young had to request that his work not be used by Trump
after reminding them1.he is Canadian 2.he is for Bernie Sanders.
Like a pizza with pieces missing,i substitute  movie legends
just as Clint Eastwood addressed an empty chair(unsuccessfully)
You see-movies have more authenticity than any politician's promises
and i remind myself they are good value for entertainment

and will not give me emotional gridlock in the morning..
