...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?

COMPASSION, EMPATHY AWARENESS
 SONGS IN THE KEY OF MIND
Your emotional resonance finds frequencies
that adapt to your personal wavelength.
Music enters where your heart is opened
More than mere ears and their errant auricles
More than eyes and their Photoshopped surprises
More than barriers,habits,fears,limits,flaws
Just to be open to others allows others in
Just to connect is everything.Music knows this
'and selects you as their active listener.
Music is a conscious force that aligns with you
when you are open to accepting the OTHER.
Not military marches with their dull pomposities
Not banjos nor bagpipes,crashing cymbals and drums
More mellow,open tunings,endless ragas of the heart
You are the music that you love.NOW PLAY ON!
