|Mind the Gap and Dubstep
Greetings Garden Dwellers!
Welcome to the last Out of Standard of 2012. Since this prompt began at mid year, many of you have graciously rose to each challenge, conjuring up the unexpected. December’s challenge will be no different. In fact, this may be the hardest (and most rewarding) Out of Standard yet.
THE DUBSTEP GOAT CHALLENGE
Congratulations: you have (basically) survived 2012. No Mayan apocalypse has slowed you down. Now 2013 is patiently knocking at the door and would like you to join it for a night out , (even if it is cold outside and your boots have yet to dry from your last walk to the corner store).
But not so fast. If you’d like success and artistic fulfillment in 2013 there is one thing you must do: pay homage to the Dubstep Goat. It is a little known fact that musicians, artists, writers, and street artisans in South London worship a creature called the Dubstep Goat. This hip, sustainable deity rewards its followers with a heightened sense of creative purpose and the ability to produce work on a stronger frequency. One South Londoner compared the Dubstep Goat’s blessings to listening to Rubber Soul for the first time, in the sense that they both “blew his mind and then captured his soul.”
THE CHALLENGE: write a poem inspired by the Dubstep Goat footage provided below.
Toads, I welcome you to start the New Year by drawing inspiration from the underground animal god of South London. I am not asking you to convert to its teachings, but I have provided a few you tube clips below to spark your imagination. Go now and bring us back something like Rubber Soul, that is unexpected and shiny!!!!
