...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?"

"THE ART OF THE PRESENT TENSE"
Fireflies in a bottle.Setting butterflies free.
Journalists of the Zeitgeist.Lightning Epiphanies.
Whistleblowers vs Censorship/Persecution.
Online vs Print medium.Now vs Zen.
Awakening vs Dreaming.Action vs Response.
All every song wants and needs is a chorus.
You think you are alone(so does everyone)
Ships that pass in the night still need harbor lights.
Sanctuary for wounds that need healing in other's eyes
There are more keys to locked doors than you realize
Cast your spells as drama,dance,poetry,sculpture,song or art
All that really matters-is that you take your part.
