    Spreadsheet Invasion

    by
    This assignment was one of my favorites from the entire class. It also took longer than any other assignment so I want to see if I can make it easier for other people. The first thing you want to do is open up your spreadsheet application. I used Microsoft Excel but google docs should work ...

    Final Thoughts

    by
    What do I think about ds106? It’s a pretty cool idea for a class. I think that in today’s world it makes sense to know how to have and manage a digital identity. Although I wish there had been more emphasis on protecting and cultivating the kind of identity that you want instead of just creating incessantly. I ...

    Final Project: Left-Handed Twitter

    by
    Growing up I was really into reading books. I would read anything and everything I could get my hands on. But since coming to college and becoming a computer science major, I have turned towards web comics for stories. I think it has been mostly becasue it is far easier for me to spend a ...

    Pooh sounds better than it looks

    by
    After a lot of duds from the remix generator I would up with one that I liked. The original assignment was to take a quote and put it in a picture with a background that enhances it. My remix card was “Media Bender,” where I do the assignment using another media. I decided to use ...

    Remix Failures

    by
    I spent a lot of time just clicking through the ds106 remix generator to see what combinations would be doable and/or fun. I must have had to reload that page over 15 times before I got one that even made sense. I know that there are some great combinations from the ones we came up ...

    TDC Update #?!?

    by
    I have really been slacking on these, but here’s what I have done semi-recently. I actually took this picture for a daily create a while ago and didn’t use it, but I held onto it because I liked how it turned out. This is my living room through an empty wine jug. I was blanking on what ...

    Flubetheus: Rise of the Flub

    by
    When I went to the movies a while ago to see the Hunger Games (awesome btw) I saw the trailer for Prometheus for the hundredth time. It was during this particular viewing that I noticed a little green thing in the corner of one of the shots and remarked to one of my friends how ...

    5 Seconds

    by
    One of the video assignments that caught my eye this week was the one archetype, five movies, five seconds assignment. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Take 5, one second clips from 5 movies and cut them together to show a common archetype they all share. Mine was fairly easy. I did the old wise ...

    Coming soon…

    by
    I just spent the last half hour watching movie trailers in preparation for the movie trailer mash-up assignment. I started off thinking about doing something with the notebook and dodgeball, since those came out on the same weekend, but it didn’t pan out. I finally settled on the two movies that I want to do. ...

    Final project?

    by
    I’m not quite sure what to do for a final project yet. At first I was going to create a character on twitter that would update a couple of times every day and tell a story through tweets. I still might do that. But I also want to look into maybe doing some full game ...

    Play-By-Play

    by
    Ultimate is one of my passions. So, I decided to take an awesome play from a game and break down the video. Some of the jargon might not make sense to those who haven’t played before so I’ll try to explain some of the terms I use here. A handler is a player who is ...

    The Drunk Tank: Showtime

    by
    Listening to my own recorded voice has always made me cringe. It is always different from the way I hear myself or think I will sound. Then you have to add in the fact that I am inebriated for the majority of the recordings and saying whatever I think will get a laugh in that ...

    The Drunk Tank: Editing

    by
    The Drunk Tank team got together after the recording to edit our 2 hours worth of material. We split up the advice commercials and bumpers and went through them adding sound effects, taking out drunk laughter and bleeping out curse words. Some of the calls/emails were hilarious, but some were a lot less funny.  We ...

    The Drunk Tank: Recording

    by
    Last night team drunk tank got together to record our radio show. We were a member down due to an unfortunate mocassin incident but we soldiered on. The premise for our show was to get wasted and answer advice column questions. Simple right? It went alright at first. we got a few questions answered semi-intelligibly ...

    The Fault in our Stars

    by
    The Fault in our Stars is one of my favorite books. It’s a novel by John Green, who also wrote one of my other favorites, Looking for Alaska. The title comes from a shakespeare quote. “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.” This book serves to contradict this ...

    Pong

    by
    Holy bejebus this one took forever. I actually started it in class on Wednesday and did not finish until Saturday afternoon. The assignment was to animate something with Excel to make it fun. I decided to use the highlight functionality to animate a quick shot of Pong being played. At first I drew it all ...

    Daily Create Update #4

    by
    This week’s Daily Creates were once again photo centric. I led off the week with a picture of one of my friends eating a chicken wing with a fork. I didn’t even ask her to do it for the picture, she’s just weird like that. Next I tried to take a picture of a toy ...

    You can’t handle the truth!

    by
    As soon as I read the assignment description I knew I wanted to do Firefly. Yes, I know, technically this poster is from Serenity. But I like to think of it was the last episode of Firefly, because it deserved more than 13 episodes. I’ve always told people that were on the fence about watching it, ...

    Take your best guess

    by
    I had fun with this assignment. The hardest part wasn’t the design aspect, but picking the movie and filtering it down to 4 icons. Once I knew which movie I wanted I just googled it to see what came up and took my ideas from there. I got most of my icons from the noun ...

    Splash of Color

    by
    I’ve seen pictures like this all over the internet but I never knew how they were made until now. I picked a photo that was taken at a frisbee tournament that was held last year on the turf fields. It was one of those accidentally awesome pictures. I decided to leave the color in the hat because ...
