...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?"

EVENTS UNFOLD@AN ASTONISHING RATE
VIRUSES BECOME PANDEMIC AS PATRIACHAL GOVERNMENTS
Only Monarchs are allowed to migrate-even then they demolish a Butterfly Sanctuary
Goodwill gathers in Community Events-young green grass shoots,old weedy wise elders
Waves of OCCUPY cede to #Me Too,It's Time,Extinction Rebellion
Until dinosaur powered engines are declared extinct,and electric crowned windmills
Solar Powered deserts suffer fires and flash floods simultaneously("firenados")
Wake each day to a new EMERGENCY-when EMERGENCE is what we wish to see
Shopping Malls are Emptied by AMAZON.Movie theaters emptied by NETFLIX,HULU,DISNEY PLUS
Cash displaced via digital currencies.Counterfeiting still an industry.They keep pushing "autonomous vehicles"
but A.I does not yet trust human drivers,and too many parts of our lives become ceded to robotics
Human beings become as redundant as our wild habitat.New Tribes gather then dissipate.
Awareness of exigencies leads super-rich to migrate-into space.Chinese Moon Base!
Watch the weather as surveillance state watches us.Cameras in your credit cards.
Your phone tracks your transactions,locations,habits,opinions.FACEBOOK allows political lies.
Yet still another day plops like a newspaper on your front lawn.Do they not know
all redundancies are inbuilt into this program.You are programmed.
But we try not to focus too much upon the inevitable."FREEDOM" is also a brand name.
We turn to each other,and smile..
