"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 WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!"
This was our Mantra while police were assaulting us
Newsreels of police riots were used not only in documentaries
but also in history classes.Finally ,in static graphic novels/manga
which evolved into TV series and feature length MARVEL productions.
THE WATCHMEN fluctuates between fact and fiction,integrating super-heroines
into our known web of racist history.Technology allows us to replicate Kennedy's assassination,
and to meddle in the historicity of life changing events for advertising,humor,satire and fun.
Dictators hate it when laughed at.Hence ANONYMOUS actors.Like KKK robes,only digital.
You do not know who is replicating figures you know only from TV ,films,media.
Voice Recognition morphs into Virtual Voicing.Remember Tom Cruise in Spielberg's A.I?
People earn a living imitating karaoke Kardashians.Trump hired a fake Obama to berate.
We are losing the ability to gather and relate.We are all online 24/7-
so our SOUTH PARK/SIMPSONS world can incorporate dictators and pop stars easily.
Coachella with holograms.Michael Jackson reincarnated for a film/world tour.
These images are more real than fact.Deep fake replaces virtual reality.
Dead bands can be reincarnated,like SPINAL TAP.John Lennon Returns!
And THE GRATEFUL DEAD do another LIVE album!We live in deepfake news days,
with faux data and fake radio events like Orson Welle's WAR OF THE WORLDS.
Only now,MARS ATTACKS!and we get our semi-automatics out/our SECOND LIFE
supplanted by data engineers post-DUNGEONS &DRAGONS.Once you cannot trust your eyes,
you have only miracles,apparitions,mystical visions and magicians on National television.
Houdini!Move over!Your deepfake imposter /your body double is ready to take your bullets.
Once again,like 9/11 -on faux National television..Now REPLAY-ad infinitum..
