...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?"

HABIT FORMING
Poetry addiction is real
BUT it needs spaces and sanctuaries to be practiced within
with consenting autonomous individuals(groups of friends)
After the initial shock of free speech wears off,
a delightful buzz settles in,wherein and whereby
the mellifluous flow of conversation
becomes a habit-forming exercise.Of course,
much active listening is required,with patience and attention.
Once the gathering of unlike minds in di/verse patterns is established,
then more obvious affiliations with art,music,dance and sculpture can be extended....
Then the continuing New Renaissance can resume,
with self-selecting individuals temporarily addicted
to free speech,happiness and freedom of assembly
