...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?"


Back Matter: 
Diet Tips from Henry David Thoreau
"LEAVE OFF EATING EACH OTHER"(Thoreau)
O cannibals and carnivores!
Ye who trap others and are yourselves
imbibing the spirits of fear and anger
Hear Pythagoras in Ovid's  METEMPSYCHOSIS
about the remains of animals in your intestines
Animal fats clogging up your arteries
Slaughterhouse suffering  embedded in veal
O Omnivores!Leaving carcases of free range creatures
who would be happier in their habitat than in your distended belly
Look again @plants and vegetables as your source of protein..
Beans,legumes,grains await your mastication and integration
into a non-violent,blood-free diet.All your vegan,vegetarian,breatharian ethical eaters
will share their choices,none of which cause global warming

all of which are naturally renewable,and allow us life without murder.
