...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?"

"WHAT IS IN A NAME?A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS SWEET"
This winter season holds many reasons to celebrate-Solstice,Yule,Saturnalia..et alia.
Mammon and Baal rejoice in Christmas Shopping Sales
And Nativity scenes spring up everywhere(all historically inaccurate-but emotionally saccharine
It is enough to make atheists celebrate Festivus!Separation of Church and State
are the base foundations of the American Republic.It was only in 1958 that IN GOD WE TRUST
adorned our dollar denomination currency notes.And Satanists reserve the right
to have their religious symbols shared in public.Same with Wiccans,Jewish people ,Muslims...
Each holds images they see as Sacred,Precious,Unique.Christians may soon be a minority religion,
and cultural continuity might lower those crucifixes as quickly as Confederate statues..
Meanwhile,secular America turns away from institutionalized religion,yet retains the holidays
in the name of their crucified leader.More to be made from religious marketing than secular humanism.

Until peace is declared and followed,Christmas Shopping Season will see a Price War online and off..
