...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?"
PRECIOUS THINGS ARE NOT"Things"
More a calm equilibrium between
competing pressures.Like wings in air-
lifting up because of flow beneath and around.
We are always in the midst of things
We go around like water/rise up like heated air
Depress when weights of heavy weather bring us down
We change and are so variant(almost unpredictable-
until some science catches all our factors and we are all explained..
Then more complex factors introduce themselves and
we see BLACK SWAN(Theories),DARK MATTER(deep!
and DARK ENERGIES which fill our holes in theories
Every thing is provisional.Wait.Watch it change.
All things need-is a new name...
