    Rainbow Showcase



    For my second visual assignment for the week, I decided to do the Rainbow Showcase assignment. I was originally planning on using one of the episodes of The Wire that we have to watch, but the assignment said that I should use my favorite show, so I decided that Doctor …

    Week 4 Summary


    I am enjoying this season of The Wire so much more than the last season, especially because it is the same team working on the case, but it is a very different case. I like the mob and murder aspects of the mystery instead of just waiting to see if …

    Project Brainstorming


    For the ds106 radio project, I think it would be really fun to explore the use of different technology in The Wire. What would the first season have looked like if the drug crew was using text messaging instead of pagers? What about if they didn’t have anything and were …

    DS106 Robot Radio Bumper


    For my ds106 radio bumper, I went with a techno feel. I used this sound from freesound.org  and a voice changing app on my phone to record the robot sounding “ds106 radio” and then used Audacity to put them together. I was really struggling with Audacity last night, so I …

    Web 2.0 Reaction


    I found the Web 2.0 chapter to be very interesting, but reading it was very strange. I don’t know quite how to explain it, but I think what he was trying to explain and then prove through examples was a argument that anyone who has ever used the internet understands …

    The Wire S1E6


    I think so far episode 6, also titled “The Wire” has been my favorite, because for me this is where the story really became interesting. There are several characters in the series that I already felt for, like Wallace, but this episode also made me feel bad Omar, whom I …
