What’s the Deal with Facebook? Batch Photo Tagging for Idiots

::Does the best Jerry Seinfeld impression she can muster:: What’s the deal with photo tagging? I was just uploading these photos to Facebook (I seriously almost typed Fecebook LOL) and I prefer doing it the old fashioned way. Yep, downloading them to my computer then uploading them via Mozilla Firefox (LOVE).  Then what happens? It […]

Ghosts on a Clothesline

A new video poem by blastedgoat. Check out some photos I’ve snapped and a short poem I revised in this video. More videos coming soon!   I will also be making a big announcement in the next few days! It has something to do with next month… in a few minutes or so anyhow…

B&W Magical Armies Clash on Dover Beach Poetry Mix [Video]

Hi. I’m blastedgoat… I like to er… write poems and such. Here is a decent poem I scrapped out of poetry workshop at UNI. I also scribbled a poem at the midnight release party for the final Harry Potter book. I drew the title loosely from a Matthew Arnold poem by the name of Dover […]

The Unpaved States of America*

I don’t have cable television anymore but I get my news. It isn’t 24 hour news but I suppose it could be if I was so inclined. I have grown less interested in political hocus pocus and more enthralled with social construction, stratification, abuse and destruction. I believe our government does this to us and […]

Defending Harry Potter

Here is the original article by Dave Thier. It was written yesterday and has spawned some controversy for die hard fans. I will take this article on, section by section, line by line if need be. Dave needs to stop writing articles about things he clearly didn’t research and doesn’t care about. Dave Thier, I […]

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 […]

Too Much Media: Women in Popular Culture

For this Independence Day I am posting a video that celebrates a group of people who have fought for the freedom of countess others and yet are often held back themselves… WOMEN. We make less and we still make your sandwiches! On a more serious note, some of the topics I will cover in future […]

The Day Osama Died

Oh boy, Obama‘s late night speech has been posted on YouTube and the comments are flooding in by the second. You can also download it in its entirety… This is part of public domain and so I will be using it for commentary within the next few days. The part I’m most interested in is, […]

How Have I Never Seen Boogie Nights? (and Other Quandries from an Unemployed Brain)

What the hell I’m a huge John C. Reilly fan! Not to mention it had a pretty awesome cast, Marky Mark Wahlberg? LOL. Wow, this blog isn’t punctuated the best, huh guys? I’m just acting weird because I’m pondering 2011 and how everyone thinks it’s the end of the world. I don’t believe them but […]

Capturing Parallels

Pretending nothing happened? Telling lies for we must not tell the truth? Every time you accidentally mention my name, brush me off your shoulder, edge a little closer on a floral couch… When I rested my head on your shoulder on the train I wished you were mine again. Even if you were disguised behind […]

Why You Don’t Outstrange Strangers, Anymore

I am working on a new poetry compilation for the springtime… in the meantime I figured I might share what I have been so freaking busy doing lately since I recently became unemployed. I don’t do much except clean my place and listen to music on YouTube. In the last year I lost my cat […]

Face(book) Your Family

I go to visit grandmother and all I see are farms… “Is anyone else having troubles getting their baby ducks to transform into different ones? I’ve had some troubles and they won’t switch. Have a lot of troubles don’t know why I get people to click and get seven names and then I can’t get […]
