    I know what you’re thinking based on that title: DELICIOUS. It is something I am ashamed to say I have tried to concoct in my kitchen (Thai food has changed my perspective on peanut butter). And now, I am selling the idea for mill

    Recycle ALL the Media

    by

    For the Recycle the Media assignment, I took a video listing different words in “waterfall” form and tried to match up the words with corresponding images from discarded images. I then set the video to a mashed up song of sorts I found on the recycled media page.

    Upselling an Ibex

    I saw the “Buffalax!” assignment and thought of one of my favorite foreign youtube videos “Arguing with an Ibex” and, using my best Windows Movie Maker caption skills, tried to portray the man attempting to sell the ibex an extended warranty (something I myself get frustrated …

    Barking on Sunshine

    by

    I saw the “Local Commercial Mashup” and my mind immediately wandered towards those really sad SPCA ads, and I thought to myself, “why not make that a little more upbeat?” So I took an SPCA ad off of youtube, pulled it into MPEG Streamclip, deleted the audio files, …

    Sir Remixalot

    by

    I watched “Everything is a Remix” Part 1 and Part 3. The author presented an interesting argument about “remix” and how common it is, being the basis of most recent innovations. I guess the real issue for would-be remixers is to make their derivative work “substantially different.”

    For examples …

    Radio Show Evaluation: SpiritXpress- Autumn

    Quality of audio sound  -e.g. is the volume appropriate? are the levels even? Is the sound clear, and free of noises not needed (e.g. mouse clicks, background)?

    Johnny Chipmunk

    by

    For my Mainstream Chipmunk’d assignment, I decided to commit sacrilege and chipmunk the late Johnny Cash (I wondered how it would sound on a deeper voice) and the results don’t disappoint.

    I pulled the song into Audacity and upped the pitch to the desired chipmunky-ness.

    For my Movie Voice Machines assignment I tried my hand at a Yoda impression.

    For my ds106 Radio advertisement for my groups ds106 radio show I opted to create a graphic poster.
