...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?

ENTERING THE YEAR
THERE IS NO GOING BACK
All the Greatest Hits are muzak
Luminaries show taint ,and rust
Compromised ideals and distrust  grows apace
When looking for the Golden,remember Gluten-Free
might mean Glyphosate.Ban the Kool-Aid!
Why so many allergies?How common your cold?
Heaven has a Hot Line for Subscribers
Gated Communities are all the Glow!
Million dollar mansions in Malibu
burn with the same intensities as Kanye
You can buy a ticket to space-one-way.
The place you are standing is Standing Rock
That oil you are drinking was a river once
The Good News is still coming from Aix to Ghent
Apocalypse @Midnight came-and went
Now we have to get used to living with each other
And all the refugees from politics-and cliches

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW DAY!
