the historical first blog….

so here it is. my first blog. so much pressure. i’m sure there are thousands of people who have been compulsively checking my website every half an hour or so just to see if anything new has been posted. okay, maybe not thousands, maybe just 3 people. me, my mom and some guy who hopes that this page will be some cutting edge porn site. sorry man, no porn.
(crap, crushed his little tiny dreams now, didn’t i?)

the “no porn” declaration has now cost me several web browsers, but i shall move on as if they had never stumbled across this page in the first place. i suppose that i should probably let you, the reader, know what types of words will be in your future if you decide to continue visiting this site. first, and this is important, some of the words may rhyme with other words. i know, a little scary to encounter, poetry that rhymes. however, lyrics to songs are really rhyming poems set to music. that being said, i feel better, don’t you? in addition, i do also write short stories and free verse so i think that will help us all to get along nicely. second, i plan to write something for this blog every day. this means that you can come here and read some new words and strange ideas pretty often. unless, of course, i get a seriously bad splinter and am unable to type. let’s not even contemplate that right now, it’s just too horrible to imagine. lastly, this site will be getting new poetry, new pictures, new videos and new audio tracks as quickly as my webmaster is able to post them. this is fabulous because i had originally intended to travel the world looking for people who might be interested in my writing and drawings and then copying everything down for them one person at a time. this whole website thing is going to save a lot of trees and a great deal of my time.

i am going to have to close this cute little blog window now since it appears there is a draft coming into my writing room. please keep checking back on the website for new and hopefully entertaining things that may fall onto my keyboard at any given moment.

thank you! barbie angell.

“Barbie Angell Uncensored” is a dazzling fusion
of poetry, comedy and tragedy

ASHEVILLE NC – Poet, playwright and raconteur Barbie Angell performs “Barbie Angell Uncensored: An Unfiltered, Uninhibited and Unapologetic Event” at 8pm Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at LaZoom Bar & Gorilla. The 90-minute show is a melange of works spanning Angell’s career, including her poetry, excerpts from her autobiographical play “Death by Sparkle,” pieces from her children’s book “Roasting Questions,” and rarely performed mature works.

A multitalented, multi-hyphenate personality based in Asheville since 1999, the always colorful Angell is recognized around town for her work as a poet, playwright, columnist, emcee, artist and fashion designer. She has been voted “Best of WNC” poet by Mountain XPress readers for 10 consecutive years, and her skills as an emcee have made her a sought-after host for local festivals and large events such as Planned Parenthood’s Condom Couture and the Reproductive Rights Rally. 

Angell has written sketch comedy, co-authored “The Kids Show: Definitely Not for Kids,” and penned one act of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” for Montford Park Player. She is currently creating and selling upcycled clothing in her own fun and funky signature style – some of which will be available for sale at the event, along with original artwork and prints.

Equal parts stand-up comedy, poetry slam and public confession booth, “Barbie Angell Uncensored” promises to be emotional, unsettling, hilarious, and as unique as Barbie Angell herself!
