Good goat times today. Lovely weather. Mostly sunny with some light clouds. And the temperature was just right. T-shirt weather. I was the first to arrive this morning so I couldn’t let the goats out in the pen, since Black Beauty blocks that exit. Had to take the goats out on the pasture. Of course I didn’t mind, since they’ve blocked the usual passage between pen and pasture. Nice to be out in the pasture again. Snacking on the trees around the fence. Running with Mia. Relaxing lazily in the dirt. And once the horses joined us in the pen there were several funny “oh ship, there’s a horse coming out way. We’re outta here” moments from the goats. I really hope we can get something worked out so we can go back and forth between the pen and the pasture again. I enjoy both places. When it was time to leave I actually left the goats in the pasture instead of putting them in the pen. A little anarchy, a little message. Me and the goats against the world.

Heading to bed. So, i’ve been approached by someoen from ‘Jukin Media’ who wants to discuss licensing the video of Mia on my back. Hmm. Looked them up on wikipedia, and turns out they’re behind the Chewbacca mom video. Haha. I don’t know. I’m not really interested in making money off the goats and I don’t know how legit this guy is. Interesting, though. Can’t hurt to think and talk.

Well, I sent a reply to the Jukin folks. Regarding my video. Cautiously hesitant. I may have screwed myself over by giving that other page permission to use the video. As thrilling as it is seeing 1½ million people have watched it, it may mean the video is no longer commercially interesting for an agency. Right are complicated.
I do have several other videos showing similar scenes, though. So that’s kinda what i’ve told them. And that I, as such, am not that interested in making a profit off my videos. More interested in getting visitors to my Facebook page so more people can enjoy the goats. In it for the love, not the money.
We’ll see what they say. Maybe they have no interest now. Maybe my rambling email makes me more trouble than I’m worth dealing with, haha. Maybe they’ll still want to offer me something. I don’t know.
Seeing as I’m on disability in Denmark, getting a checque from America might be more hassle than it’s worth. It might mess with my welfare, I’d have to figure out my taxes. I don’t know. If they were offering me 100,000 dollars maybe it’d be worth it but I’m not expecting anything like that. Hmm hmm. We’ll see what they say. My position is, I really have nothing to lose since I’m not expecting anything. Even if they ripped me off, I’d be no worse off than I am now. I don’t see the goats as an asset that I need to make bank on. As long as I still have them for company, I’m good.
I was toying with the idea of funnelling the pofits to Esther the wonderpig and her sanctuary. That would be a lovely thing to do for them. But maybe that would be complicated too. I don’t know.
They’re the ones who’ll have to work to win me over, I have no problem with nothing coming from this. I must say, they have seen quite motivated. I think they’ve contacted me on every social media platform that I’m represented on. Since I didn’t answer them before going to bed yesterday. I even got an email that they followed me on Google+. Haha. I didn’t know Google+ was still a thing. I bet if I log into my Myspace there’ll be a message from them there.
It’s flattering, though. The viral videos have been fun, we’ve gotten more Likes, now this offer. If I were a more business minded person I’d probably be trying to make a pay day out of this.
See, rambling!

Sorry if I’m completely out of the loop on literally everything, LITERALLY. My mind has been preoccupied with the licensing and also being out on the town with goats partying like it’s 1999 raisins for a dolllar. I feel like a cartoon strip where I start off in the first frame with a half full to-do box and then in the last frame the to-do box is COMPLETELY FULL and I don’t know what happened in the middle frames but obviously it didn’t involve me getting anything done or even checking the Facebook feed. I just hope when the inevitable end times begin the steps to survival won’t be buried somewhere deep in my timeline and I’ll only read them once the radiation has nuked my core or the brain slugs have devoured the tastiest parts of my brain or you know what was I saying?

Good goat times today. A beautiful day. Warm and sunny. I think it may be the most summerly of the year yet. Perfect for sitting around and watching the goats goat. Brought my tripod today to try to get some better shots of us on the bench. Using the tripod makes me feel partly silly and partly like an actual photographer, haha. We’ll see if any of it is usable. I did something else today… but I’ll tell you a little later.
But more weather like this, please.

Very sad to hear about Chris Cornell. It’s always profoundly sad when great artists who have made so many many people laugh or cry or feel or survive take their own lives. It makes you wish you could turn the clock back and line up thousands and thousands of people to tell them how great they were.
Sometimes the monsters in your head are stronger than the armies of lovers in the real world.

Oh no, Black Beauty! What did you do? You knocked down two boards from the fence. And then moved the bench to cover part of the hole?! Bad horse!
Yeah, I did it. Haha. I can’t believe it. Pretty out of character for me. And to be honest I’m kinda regretting it. Stupid thing to do and I feel bad about it now. I hope they won’t be mad at me. Well, what’s the worst that can happen. It’s not like they can fire me…
For now the goats have a way from the pen to the pasture again. We’ll see how that goes. Mia and Mio did cross over to the pasture briefly. But today it was mostly the horses taking advantage. Since the grass is better in the pen than in the pasture. So now they could reach a little bit of the better grass. Once they eat that up the passageway should be clear for the goats again. Unless it gets boarded up or something. I don’t know. Whateves.

I wish I was one of those rich and powerful people who have their own personal chef installed in their house so they can just ring a bell at 4:51 am and make the chef cook them up some refried spaghetti and then everyone would be so aghast because you have your own personal high class chef why would you make him make you something so banal at 4:51 am when you could have literally anything but you know I want refried spaghetti and it’s 4:51 am but I don’t have a chef so I don’t know what to tell you.

Another video on this page. Much Palle sweetness. Although human father is maybe a little much! The other video is past 1.8 million, and if you add the 2-300,000 from the page that stole the video and posted without giving credit then we’re over 2 million views on that one. Move over Star Wars, we’re the new hit franchise in town.

Featured Goats

Today will be a good day. I went over the math, it checks out.

Good goat times today. First a little visit to the doctor’s office, though. Just a followup about the blood tests I had done recently. Everything looking fine. Just have to watch out for the vitamin b12 levels. And the life threatening pizza deficiency, that I’m pretty sure she mentioned. Other than that she was very happy with it all. So that’s good.
And then off to the goats. Lots of sunshine with some beautiful clouds, but also a hard, cold wind. Had to have my winter coat on, though I left it open mostly. Moved the newly arrived old bench a little, took it down to a sunny spot and had a good time sitting there. Mia soon enough sat down next to me. Just like the good old days. Both her and Mio had their turns jumping up and standing on it. I wonder if A38 will try that out when she gets the chance.
Had a talk with Alice, about the boarded off goat pen. I guess they did it because the girls that take care of the horses had been complaining that when they take the horses in, the goats kept following them in. Well yeah. They’re goats. They’re supposed to not follow the rules. Sigh. I told Alice I wasn’t happy about it, and we talked about getting a gate that could open and close in the goat pen so I could at least take them out on the pasture like that. But knowing how things usually go I wouldn’t be surprised if that takes a long time if it gets done at all. Ressources are very few at this place. The goat pen is nice and all I’ll just miss having all that space and the trees and running in the pasture and Mia following me when I leave and all that. It shows how little it takes to rattle me because it’s making me depressed thinking about it. Oh well. I guess it’s me and the goats against the world. Hopefully we can get that gate. Or maybe I can accidentally kick the board loose.. blame the horses.

Had my half-yearly checkup at the eye doc today. Things are still stable, so that’s good.
Very tired now, though. Doctor yesterday, eye doc today. The talk with Alice. Plus getting lost in my regular supermarket because they’re redesigning (not just moving their stock, but completely remodelling and everything is a labyrinhine mess right now). It’s been way too much humaning for two days. Already looking forward to escaing to dreamland tonight.

Good goat times today. I was earlier than usual and had a nice good time. It was a rainy morning, but luckily the rain had stopped by the time I left home. And the clouds weren’t thick enough to keep the light out. And there wasn’t much wind, so it was a pleasant day. Nice for sitting on a bench and watching goats. Although I usually don’t get to sit there by myself for long. As soon as Mia sees me going to the bench she usually comes running iwth a wagging tail, hoping for treats and cuddles. And predictably I deliver. It’s fun when both Mia and Mio want to get on the bench at the same time. It gets a little cramped.

Had another fun adventure in the supermarket maze today. The place is a complete mess. I spent 30 minutes looking for the cheese. Only slightly less time than the Monty Python cheese sketch.
Eventually I had to give up and overcome my social phobia and ask someone for help. She dragged me all the way over to the other side of the store. The completely opposite of where it used to be. And as far away as possible from all the other dairy products. Well alrite then. At least I got it. I hope they finish their reconstruction soon.

I suggested another video to the page that featured Palle… and here we are. I think Palle’s video is up to about 140,000 views. Let’s see how this one does on their page. It was the one that went pretty viral on Mia’s page.

Snorkelforks. My MP3 player broke. This will negatively impact my exercise and walk to the goats. Sigh. Well, I do have an alt, but it’s not as good and it’s a bother. Now I’ll have to pay overprice to buy an outdated model, because I’m too blind to risk trying newer models. You’d think they’d get cheaper with age, but not this model. And it’ll take probably a week to get here. Oh well.
The newly feature video has already beaten the Palle video’s views in some 4 hours. 140 something thousand views. It’s a fun thought that so many people get a smile and maybe a new way of looking at goats, and a look at me. Haha. I should probably start practicing writing autographs. Well, get the goats to start practicing writing autographs. I’m sure Mia would be happy to send out autographed pictures for a reasonable amount of peanuts.
