    Final Summary

    by

    Bare with me, but when we first started the class I wasn’t exactly posting correctly so this reflection on week 3 link is the entire week 3 summary, my b.  Either way, after reading over my previous description I still pretty much agree with it, except that my thinking then …

    Project Summary

    by

    So, as mentioned before I chose to take Tony Soprano and put him in the future, 50 years from the end of the show.  I had him wake up from a coma, as (SPOILER ALERT) the ending was a bit open ended.  So I had him waking up, and checking …

    Mashup Assignments

    by

    The first mashup assignment I chose was the Buffalax one.  The most obvious foreign programming to me is Telemundo so I chose a court case TV show called Caso Cerrado and subtitled it as a spelling bee.  The way I think this worked as a mashup was that it took …

    Tutorials

    by

    So for the tutorials I chose, I was just gonna do the assignments I recently created (fresh in my mind, and might as well show how I did my own).  So for the first one “Imitative Polyphony,” all I did was go to GarageBand as we’ve seen many …

    What is Remix?

    by

    The first reference I checked out was Everything is a Remix Part I by Kirby Ferguson, which showed how remix evolved mainly through music.  He begins by stating the definition of remix as a way “to combine or edit existing materials to produce something new.”  This is essentially how I …

    Make an Imitative Polyphony

    An imitative polyphony can best be described as when you were younger in music class and the teacher would have one side of the class start singing “row row row your boat” and then part way through the song have the other half of the class …

    New TDC Challenges

    by

    Tell a story using only numbers at the top of your keyboard and the line below it (q,w,e,r,t,y,u,i,o,p).

    So, throughout the course of the semester I chose to do a lot of the writing TDC because to me it’s the easiest way to tell a story (probably because it’s the …

    Final Project Stuff

    by

    Alright, so if I’m reading this correctly, the character I’m gonna choose is Tony Soprano from the TV show The Sopranos.  The story that I wish to tell is going to revolve around him going to jail for a long amount of time, lets say 10 or so years, and …

    Product Evolution

    by

    I liked this assignment because it was pretty similar to one we did a few weeks ago showing the change over time of websites (I think the example someone used was McDonalds, and I think I did Yahoo!), but it’s always pretty cool to check out how a product has …

    Vintage Educational Video

    by

    For this “educational” video I wasn’t sure where to start, so I just started typing on YouTube “how to” and “how to make a ninja star” was like the 4th thing that popped up.  Pretty random but why not choose something a bit different.  So my work on this one …

    Public Service Announcement

    by

    So, here I tried to make an attempt at a presidential campaign for the man, the myth, the legend Kevin Bacon.  I’m not sure where I got the idea but I remembered people always complaining about how the president never understands “the people” and can’t relate to everyday citizens.  Well, …

    Genres of YouTube

    by

    The genre I picked out was “animals doing human things” cause I came across this about a year ago and it’s too good not to post.

    So, this is obviously a very “human thing” watching TV.  But the part of this assignment that I found to be useful was recognizing …

    Exploring The Movie Even More

    by

    I checked out the Any Given Sunday Wikipedia page for any extra info on the production, and it didn’t really have much to offer except that part of it was loosely based on a book, also the NFL wouldn’t allow them to use real team names so they had to …

    Look, Listen, Analyze

    by

    So I picked Al Pacino’s speech from Any Given Sunday

    My first view without the sound, I noticed a lot of camera angles switching, mainly to emphasize the attitudes of all the players in order to display the emotion of the locker room.  One thing I did pick up on, …

    Review of What Makes You Dynamite

    by

    Pretty good stuff, definitely liked the intro and background music, big ups to whoever did that.  The thing that sticks out to me the most is that when we did ours, it obviously didn’t have any background music or noise or whatever while recording our parts, and I actually listened …

    Telling Stories Within The Web

    New Amazon Page

    This took me a little longer than I expected as I had some trouble figuring it out.  After I downloaded the x-ray goggles, I first tried a craigslist page but was unable to directly edit the text that I wanted to, not sure exactly why I was …

    Way Back When

    by

    This project was actually pretty interesting to me cause I’ve always been intrigued by marketing.  Anyways, I clicked on Yahoo! just cause it’s my homepage and clicked a random date Feb 8, 1999.

    And it’s just really simple, no pictures, just a bunch of links for entertainment, sports, business, …

    As I was waiting for my friend Michael Jordan, I was very displeased as to how long he was taking to meet me for dinner.  I waited for hours and eventually left, but I wasn’t so much angered anymore, but …

    Summary:

    Alright, well these past couple weeks mainly focused on the radio show project, so outside of the usual daily creates and other assignments, the group project was the biggest task.  My main issue at first with the group project was just trying to communicate with everyone (I’m anti twitter …

    Radio Show Commercial

    by

    Just came up with this on the spot after my group talked about what they did.  Figured I try to throw in a late night food commercial and try to relate it to the group.  Not as long as I hoped for and I feel a little limited using GarageBand …

    Radio Bumper

    by

    Well, second time doing one of these, not too difficult, pretty straight forward.  My way of publishing it was GarageBand so I’m actually curious on how other people do theirs.  Not sure if this is everyone’s preferred method or if there’s some other program out there that I don’t even …
