...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?

KURZGESAGT
"OPTIMISTIC NIHILISM"
The species we recognize as "human"
is bound in time and limited.
Our ways of seeing ourselves
(and the worlds around us)-are also limited
But this does not stop us-from pontificating

as to plausible possible ways of understanding.
Philosophy is our ally(as is science)
and we spend most of our ticking tolled time
avoiding existential questions.Answers are optional!
Questions arise when we seek to understand
our place in this Uni-verse/who we are and where we are heading.
This does not matter to stars,nebulae,bacteria or planets
It matters to us!Kurzgesagt!
