...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?"

EMOTIONAL BUDGETING
IF LOVE &ART&HEALING WERE IMPORTANT
Then Libraries,Parks,Gardens would be fully funded
They are not,and Festivals in our Parks steal our passive use
into a commercial proposition-for damage caused-money given..
But Parks and Gardens need curating and time to pause between footprints
Same with Libraries-they are de facto Community Centers
and could help homeless instead of banning their packs and animals
Funding would see facilities like showers attached,so reading
could be a passive activity as reprieve from these heated streets
Community means respecting all of us-not just commercial customers
Our Libraries,Parks and Gardens need financial support to stay open
Our Police Force is the most expensive in Texas.
