...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?

GONZO 2018
TO BE INSIDE THE DRAGON
Comment upon its teeth and the content of its stomach
Count all damaged/ civilians and undercover operatives
Be with the wounded .Supply word bandages.
Investigate the true nature of everything.
Maintain curiosity as a badge of honor
Seek out the unusual /those who live outside the cage.
Invoke Socrates in questioning everyone,including yourself.
Report back to those still hungry for truth
Who will not settle for false nor faux
Find community with all who see,feel and act
upon the hidden worlds within WHAT IS-
the future citizens of WHAT WILL BE...
