    Alright, ds106 community.  Just wanted to give a formal announcement that the Mafia will be shutting its doors as of this week.  It’s been a great semester and a good time working with and getting to know everyone.  At least, everyone’s internet personalities.  Thanks for everything and good luck …

    Closing Time…


    The case of “findNoirCat” has finally come to a close.  It came to a screeching halt when I had the realization that we had never looked in the one place no one though she would be…

    Jump on our website for the latest information and to see  how the case …

    The Mafia has spotted the cunning NoirCat in downtown Fredericksburg earlier this week.  I was inside Benny’s pizza getting one of those Chicken Bacon Ranch slices (actually I got 2, because I’m a boss) and one of my fellow members snapped a pic of what appeared to be NoirCat strolling …

    Without deviation, progress is not possible…


    This week, I deviated from updating on the progress of the case we have been working on this week.  Clients wanted updates by Wednesday of this past week, but I have been so busy trying to tie up lose ends and following leads that it just wasn’t possible.

    Get with the program



    Just registered my agency with the head agents on the Noir106 site.  You should probably do this ASAP if your agency has any hope of keeping up. Just a heads up, or maybe a warning.  Take it how you please.

    What a pinteresting thought..


    Every now and then I hop on Pinterest to get some ideas.  Ideas for cars, gifts for the mob, family vacations, new toys and also the private jet I’m looking into.  You can check out my board below!


    Vinny D is everywhere, you can even find him on Pinterest!  …

    The economy’s taking a dump


    In honor of our booming economy here in Brooklyn, I thought I would grace everyone with an updated copy of my resume.  Anyone and everyone with half a brain would hire me to work at their place.  I’ve done it all and can do it all! Devilish good looks and …

    What the hell is a Rhinoroo?


    Saw this guy when I was on a hunting trip with my Mafia brothers in South Africa last summer.  The guide said it was called a Rhinoroo?  Don’t ask me, I have no idea what that is and I don’t want to know how it happened… I couldn’t eat for …

    My Number One


    This my number one, my one and only; the love of my life.  She holds me down and keeps me straight.  She does everything with me and always has my best interest at heart.  My wife knows how to keep things on the low when it comes to matters of …

    Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. Lebron is my favorite CURRENT player, but as far as stats, achievements and all-around skill; MJ has all other players beat.  This highlight reel shows MJ in his prime and proves his dominance of the game of basketball.

    While I …

    The Mafia way is the only way!


    For the record, if I had to get in a group with any of you’s I’d lose my mind.  Let me also add that if anyone tried to screw me over, you’d be messing with the mafia and not just me.  You would probably regret that.  With all of that …

    Just throw it in the bag….



    Week 9 has been exceptionally challenging for me.  Not so much the assignments, but just finding the time to complete everything.  The video assignments take the most time for me, especially since I am a perfectionist.  Reading, eh, not so much.  Funny that I enjoy the one that takes …

    A little ds106radio never hurt anyone..


    I decided to tune in for some ds106radio for two nights this week.  Let me tell you, there were some great shows on too!

    The first one I listened to was “Get A Clue”.  This group really did a great job in my opinion.  From the commercials/bumpers to the sound …

    A Rain Haiku


    Rain is like the wind.
    Calm, sometimes intense, and loud.
    The ground is wet now.

    This is my second of two daily creates for the week.  The video is just something cool I found from the Rain Room at the museum of modern art to go along with the haiku.…

    My stairway to heaven…


    For this daily create, we were supposed to draw a staircase that led to our ultimate dream.  Stairway to Heaven just rang a bell for me because my dream is definitely to play in the NBA.  Not that it will ever happen, although, still a fun daily create.  I have …

    Look in the Mirror


    A final reflection on our “Noir We There Yet” show?  It was freaking awesome!

    Ok, let me get to the reflection now….

    When I listened to our show live, I am pleased to say that I was very happy with the way it turned out.  We had an awesome team, …

    Over and done.. With week 8


    Week 8, it’s a wrap!  Interesting to get back into the DS106 world like we had been the first 5-6 weeks, prior to the radio show project.  My mind had to re-set to the steady work it takes to really be successful in the course.  Either way, I enjoyed the …

    Are you hiring?


    Vinny D is looking for a job.  He is a great worker and knows exactly how to execute the plan!  He is precise, persistent and ambitious.  Would you hire Vinny D?

    This is an assignment from the Assignment Bank where the instructions are to create a resume for a fictional …

    My ds106 Heroes


    1.  One of my favorite assignments by a fellow student is that of Landon Epperly.  Landon took a daily create and essentially did his own thing with it, but man did he deliver.  The task was to focus on Ruin photography, and Landon took four pictures that he found and …

    A little ds106 radio


    I chose to listen to the infamous ds106radio on Monday night, mainly because that’s when the greatest radio show in the history of radio shows was scheduled to play, “Noir We There Yet”, but also, to tweet along and give a review for the show “House of Noir”.

    Enjoyed the …

    Round 2 of NoirWeThereYet


    Noir We There Yet has got to be the most awesome group ever.  By far, the best group that I have worked with thus far in my college career.  Much like the posts/comments of other students, group work is typically a hassle.  Many schedule conflicts arise, members slack off and …

    Feeling Creative


    Unfortunately, this week, I was only able to complete two daily creates.


    The first one I completed was my Emoji Story from Wednesday.  For this daily create, we were prompted to tell a story using a random set of Emjoi’s generated through the emjoinate app.  I actually had to …
