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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rest In White Stripes

Something I made a long time ago… my love for the Stripes runs deep. The White Stripes will probably always be my favorite band because I ♥ so much of their music. I can name handfuls of songs across their diverse six albums (all of which I own in some format or another, the first […]

Jack and Meg: White Stripes, No More

Farewell to my favorite band, I hate to say I was expecting this to happen… I had to miss what was going to be my first ever Stripes concert after being a fan for years (a very poor fan who was trying to educate herself!) The 2007 tour was canceled just before they were to […]
