    Tweet tweet


    This week I did the tweet along on Wednesday the 18th. I have to say that it was rather confusing but it was an interesting story. I still really enjoy the tweet along because it is interesting to see what other people opinions are of the same thing that I …

    Our radio show has a great concept (at least in my opinion) and the poster that Justin created really shows that. It is a small town that looks abandoned with only shadow left. It gives a little brief overview into what our show will be about if you listen to …

    copy what


    I actually have never found a reason where copyright has been a problem. When I write papers I have always been told to make sure I give credit and the same thing when editing songs and images. There is something that I did find really annoying with copyright and that …

    Another noir movie


    I watched Billy Wilder’s Double Indemnity. Just to start off I want to say that it was rather boring and it may have been because it was in black and white or it may have just been a boring movie. Something that I found really interesting though was a part …

    Not classical music just a book


    When I was trying to read this I was also listening to classical music and I found it really funny that the song that came on when I started to read the title was Pachelbel Canon in D. I just thought the tittle of this could also be a good …

    For this assignment we were asked to take pictures that fit into different categories. This is my DesignBlitz!


    In this category we had to find things that represents color. It could be lack of color that makes the thing have more meaning like the pictures that I picked. The …

    Audio makes stories


    Audio is very important for just about everything. Even when you read a book there is still audio but it is what you come up with and what you think would fit. The sound that is found in stories is what changes the mood and tells the audience how they …

    Ring Ring


    The second assignment that I did was the Make your own ringtone worth 1 and a half stars. This ringtone is more of a preview for a full song but that’s what ringtones usually are, a clip of the begging of a song. It was fun to make though. The …

    Week 4 creativity


    I am still enjoying the daily creates but it is sometimes hard to remember to do it before midnight. I guess that is really only a problem for the people who stay up late at night to do their homework (so me haha). I would have to say that I …

    End of Week 3


    This week is finally over. Do you know how hard it is to concentrate on blogging when the Superbowl is on? Well only distracting at halftime and commercials. I really love photos so this week was great for me. The first thing we had to do was watch/read different examples …

    video noir


    I was excited to have to watch movies this week. But then I watched them. The first one called Killer’s kiss uses noir in many ways. The first way is that it is in black and white. Another way is that it is not like a regular movies with people …

    How I take pictures


    I find that I do take a decent amount of photos. Most of my photos are of my cats or dogs because I always find that the pictures that I don’t take are the ones that I want to show people.

    I also love to take pictures of trips that …

    Caleb’s A-Z life


    The A-Z photo collage (worth 3 points) was rather difficult to do when I chose to only do pictures about my character. All the pictures I chose represent Caleb in some way. They range from things to do with his job as a sheriff to his random hobbies.

    Chip without a chip


    O how I love Beauty and the Beast. It is just one of the best Disney movies in my opinion. The funny thing is that if you have ever seen the “Phantom of the Opera” it is like the same type of love story as in Beauty and the Beast. …
