    @pianoman tweets: ds106 FanFiction

    by

    Ah, fandom. I considered doing some Star Wars fan fiction since I watch the whole prequel trilogy last week (so bad, but still so good) but deemed SW fanfic to be too cliche, not that it isn’t awesome. I though and thought and thought about what I really loved in …

    I Have Prior Business: True Grit Video Essay

    by

    For my video essay, I choose to use the new Coen Brothers movie, “True Grit.” I was originally planning to do “No Country For Old Men,” but my first rip didn’t work and I immediately gave up on it. Luckily, I had True Grit on my computer so I decided …

    My Problem With ds106 Radio (Sorry Jim)

    by

    For the past week, it seems like 90% of the tweets in the #ds106 feed are about ds106 radio. It seems that everyone who is tweeting regularly is in love with the radio station. I, too, like it and think it is an awesome, unprecedented (for me) addition to a …

    No Girls Allowed?

    by
