...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?"

"DO I CARE MORE ABOUT YOUR DIABETES THAN YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR DIABETES?"
SO SAIETH MY RATIONAL DOCTOR
when i report my aversion to needles and blood work(and exercise)
Stating the truth is unpopular.Hard truths,especially-and personal ones.
We forgive children when they mention body odors,or ugliness.
We take into account age and debility for bitter cancerous elders
And understand that most people are mere functionaries
who simply wish to not rock the boat."It's beyond my pay grade"
The Peter Principle.Murphy's Law.It's a blow to the pride.
It's a punch to the gut.When the raw blood spurts,and the true wound is revealed.
No shelter in the ideal ,nor the cliche defense.Once,i received a reference
when i was working for a roofing contractor-"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN..
This boy is a philosopher and will waste many precious hours talking his usual nonsense..."
Nothing has changed.Some people see us as we are,not as we wish to be seen
No worries,mate!She'll be right!
