T.S. Eliot: Isolated Love Song

The Love Song of the Lonely J. Alfred Prufrock: A Closer Look T.S. Eliot constructs a sympathetic character named J. Alfred Prufrock through imagery and language that symbolize how Prufrock alienates himself from the rest of his decaying world.

Emily Dickinson: Master of Madness

Emily Dickinson was a brilliant poet who challenged traditional conventions and forced readers into dark yet captivating worlds in which she explored themes such as death, religion, individuality, longing and madness. She was very perceptive of the world around her and yet cautious about her presentation to others. Today she would most likely be diagnosed […]

Female Identities in Popular Music

I will post more of these as I record more audio and compile more sources. Hopefully this one will not be blocked for copyright reasons. Parts of this were originally in Too Much Media but it was impossible to cut out the songs without demolishing the whole project. If you are interested in music video […]

Don’t Tread on Me: EMI, UMG & WMG

I woke this 4th of July and checked on the video that took me hours to upload with my crappy internet connection and I had been hit by the big three. EMI I can assume was mad that I lifted a fitting Spice Girl’s song to the opening of my documentary about women in the […]

Too Much Media: Women in Popular Culture

Drug Documentary

I’m compiling footage from YouTube for a documentary. So far I’m only using news clips and prescription drug advertisements and bits from other good documentaries. I may record original footage to include… the ideas sort of sprang from looking up clips on the internet. I’m also interested in the possibilities of a YouTube/Windows Movie Maker […]

TOPICS of INTEREST!

There are so many thoughts scattering in my brain. Eyes roll in smoke circles getting dizzy trying to get just one idea to pop to the top. If I were so inclined to finish that line with a marketing tag-line it would have ended with the fun don’t stop. Sadly they lied, like all ads. […]

Snow Tracks: The Aftermath

I took these today in between digging my car out and taking my mom grocery shopping. I am still freezing from spending a lot of time kicking snow around and using a broken shovel and broom! These turned out pretty neat, I love the ones of our outdoor sitting area, they are totally random! I […]

Wasting Time & Money In America

I didn’t have enough money for books my first semester of college and my school loans were thirty days from my bank account so I got my first credit card. Five years and some odd months later I have a few more credit cards, a few loans and a lot of bills going into delinquency, […]

Tonight on BLASTEDGOAT we will join our post already in progress from the library I used to work at on the campus of the university I used to attend once I leave my house and drive there! ::travel music:: Well here I am at the library and someone has just dropped a book. We had […]
