    DS 106 Radio Commercial


    This is my Ds 106 radio commercial!

    I made it while cleaning for break. I bet you can’t guess why…messy roommates! I would love if there was someone to clean my room for me! I put the vacuum at the end to help really sell it!

    This was the radio …

    Weekly Summary Week 7


    This week was so hard because midterms is such a stressful time! But, it was nice to do audio assignments again since I now felt a bit more comfortable with audio assignments and felt like I could improve upon my skills and it was a bit easier to do the …

    Radio Show Check In-1


    My radio show group came together because none of us already had a group. I haven’t taken a class where I didn’t know anyone in a long time, so this is different! Meeting up for this seems like it will be hard because of fall break, plus we all have …

    The Myth of Apollo


    Listen before reading

    This is the story of Apollo. He was born, it was beautiful, he played the lyre, then Zeus came (he did some bad things-hence the thunder!). But, in the end, it was okay again and he played the lyre and lived happily ever after.

    For this assignment, …

    Make Noise from a Normal Sample


    I made this sample without listening to it first. I just started changing things to make it a more unique sound.

    In order of what I did:

    Increased the sound Moved the toggle more to the left ear Generated chirp Changed the rhythm track The tempo from 120 to 169.0…

    Design Thoughts


    Reading The Vignelli Canon by Massimo Vignelli was really interesting. I do not know much about design, but reading this booklet from him made me realize that a lot of components of design were very separate in my mind. Which according to Vignelli, is false. This quote from the booklet, …

    Un-Motivational Poster


    This assignment was to create an un-motivational poster! I thought it would be funny if I did two people who are obviously having a good time and talking/laughing, and then used a sunny background color. I coupled that with the phrase “please don’t talk to me” because my office has …

    James’ Backpack


    This assignment was to make a ‘logo’ for your name but I wanted to make it of my character’s name! I picked black outlining with a purple fill. For the font, I picked a slight cursive, but not terribly girly, font. For the background, I kept it more simple with …

    Four Icons Make a Story


    How was such a simple project so hard? Not hard to make, but hard to think of!! First, I wanted to do Mean Girls since it was just unofficially Mean Girls Day, but I just could not come up with 4 good symbols! So instead, I chose to do my …

    Radio Show Ideas


    A radio show about legends, myths, and folklore. How fun! I think it would be fun to explore the origins of some of the most well known legends. I would start ‘family friendly’ and grow more sinister as the show went on. The first one I would do is talk …

    Silly Repetitions


    Let’s listen to some silly repetitions!

    For the song mash up assignment, I decided to go a little different. The assignment was to find two songs and mash them up so it sounds like they are having a conversation. I still did that, but the two songs I chose are …

    Over Dramatic Reading-James’ Point of View


    I have to read these dumb poems aloud in class. Ugh it’s the worst! We have to read from this book called Chasers of the Light, Poems from the Typewriter Series by Tyler Knott Gregson. He is some dumb romantic. Ugh, hasn’t he figured out that love isn’t real and …

    Thanks for tuning in!


    This is the radio bumper that I made! Also, what a fun term, radio bumper! I had no idea that this had a name.

    Do you like it? I honestly wasn’t sure what to do! As any good millennial (or Generation Z depending on who you ask), I took to …

    Do you know what’s happening?


    Can you guess the story of these sounds?

    This is someone cooking something and then in the end burning themselves when they take it out. Sounds featured are an egg crack, milk being poured, the bowl being stirred, it going in the pan and into the oven, the timer of …

    City Street


    Take a listen! Can you place this sound?

    It is supposed to be what you can hear out of your bedroom window in a city. Car horns honking, people talking, an ambulance whirring by, and the rustle of people walking down the street.

    This assignment was a little more difficult …

    Audio Reflection


    When “Moon Graffiti” started, I had (wrongly) assumed that it was a fictional story being told, so I was listening to the sounds as if they were sound effects and not actually happening. So, with that said, when I was listening and hearing the ‘fuzz’ of the recording, I was …

    Daily Creates Week 5


    On Monday I stated that I didn’t want to survive the apocalypse instead of stating what I would bring to my bunker to survive it. A bit pessimistic, but it’s the truth! Have you seen the walking dead? The Hunger Games? No thank you!!

    I wouldn't bring anything, or have …

    DS106 Photography


    I picked a video of a ship approaching, a scene from one of the Pirates in the Caribbean movies.

    There was some perspective, with the ship rising up and crashing down while the camera was very zoomed in and titled up from the bottom.



    Moment-they captured Elizabeth popping …

    Photo Blitzer!


    Here are my photo blitzer results:

    Here are the photos I was able to take!

    Forced perspective, this is actually a mini pumpkin!

    The edge of a knife—-this was the sharpest I have!

    Repeating geometric shapes

    Intricate details of a hand

    Abandoned or discarded—she looks like she was abandoned on …

    Daily Creates Week 3 & 4


    Week 3 I only did one daily create because I was traveling for New York. I was helping put on a summit at the United Nations for my summer internship!

    Because of this, I did extra during week 4.

    I had a gremlin in my computer
