    Poster Extravaganza


    So for our in-class assignment Molly, Ashley, and I made three posters representing ds106. We used frustrated, and confused, and an overall poster for the class:

    This is Molly’s (really funny):

    This is Ashley’s (frustration):

    This is mine (confusion): I combined pictures from the ds106 group Flickr: 1 2 3

    Farewell Digsto


    I really liked this class! I learned tons. It’s definitely not a class for people who expect it to be like most 100 level courses where you don’t do much except write a paper and have a few tests/quizzes. It requires going to class and actually paying attention because there …

    My Favforite


    so on my Tumblr I like to make gifs out of my favorite movies.

    I really, really like Classical Hollywood Cinema 1910-1960 and Foreign films. I also really like the t.v. show Will and Grace. So, there’s some of that splashed in even though it has nothing to do with …

    I hope this makes sense. This is a tutorial on how to make a gif specifically for Tumblr on Windows 7. Keep in mind: Tumblr has a limit size of 500k. This means anything over that size will not move on Tumblr. When I first posted I realized this because …

    FINAL Tumble


    So, I got permission to change my final project!
    The reason behind the change was because I really did not have much of a final comic idea/I neglected that whole comic thing.

    AND What I didn’t realize was about a month ago, 3/31/2011 to be exact, I started a …

    Do The Constantine Mash


    So, this is my mash up, which I thought we had until today to do. I’ve actually been thinking about this for a while (since we got the assignment) and at first I wanted to compare an original movie with its remake (example, Wizard of Oz with Oz) but I …

    Superhuman Fry


    This is Calvin and I fanfiction for Ds106 class, which we did for an in class assignment. Calvin came up with the idea to make Fry from Futurama, who’s actually pretty dumb, a Superhero.
    So, we found some clips on Youtube, downloaded them, and then edited them on Pinnacle. …

    Neglected Blog


    So, I’ve been really busy with my psychology experiment, writing my research paper, and getting ready for the Psi Chi Symposium these past two weeks that I have neglected this blog. Not that that’s a good excuse because its not. Plenty of people can do a lot and this class. …

    I’m putting on my Top Hat


    This is my work for Jim Grooms videoessay assignment here and this was probably the hardest assignments yet but I really enjoyed it. FIRST, it was really hard for me because I spent about the moment I read this assignment to yesterday (4 days) trying to figure out which movie …

    Draw Drawing Draws


    So, continuing on with my previous post/final project. I’ve done some more comics based off of real life events. The same process went with all of the drawings. I basically drew them, colored them with normal pens and markers, and then scanned them on to my computer!

    My first …

    Jesus Bale Lives


    So for this assignment we had to use Firefox and Firebug to tell a story within an existing Web space. So, the first thing I had to do was come up with a website to play around with. I follow some Tumblrs and there’s this running joke about Christian Bale …

    Dow ner Bonna roo


    I listened to UMWdowner and Bonnaroo radio.
    I liked the UMWdowner show because originally my group had a thought to interview people about parking. Quite frankly, a lot of people I know(mostly seniors) have complained about the parking and I think many students can relate to this show, maybe …

    Ugh C.o.m.i.c.s.


    SO, for my final project, I’ve been going back and forth about what to do with comics (see previous post) and everyone’s doing their own thing so scratch that idea. Instead I figured I would just do a comic every other day or a couple times a week. Kind …

    The end of the world in 30minutes.

    Thought’s About a Final Project Idea


    So, I really like my first idea of doing a comic strip but I was thinking it’d be hard to do it all by myself/ kind of boring. I was thinking I could expand the idea into a more creative project. I was thinking it would be interesting to do …

    This American Life


    For the videos of Ira Glass and storytelling, I really liked part 3 when he played a clip of one of his first stories, it was interesting. I also really thought his advice was true. People in the creative field do, at first, spend years creating things that they …

    What the Font?


    I decided to do another design assignment for ds106 because they’re a lot of fun. As I was scrolling through the design assignment I decided on the Font assignment. I already had an idea in mind when I was reading through the description. I decided to design the Deathly …

    RADIO, an Illustrated Guide.


    I enjoy reading graphic novels so I definitely liked reading this radio guide; I kind of wish all my text books where like this guide. I actually have a social psychology book that uses comics every now and then to explain a point. Anyways, one of my favorite parts …

    Final Project


    I have no idea what to do for my final project. I literally just finished reading McClouds “understanding comics,” which I really liked since I read comics so now all I can think of is writing my own comic…yeah I have no other ideas. :/…

    Five Card Flickr


    For this assignment I went to this site and had it randomly select 5 flickr pictures from other ds106 students.

    From these 5 pictures (the bear is the first one, the glass is the last one) I got to make a story out of them. It was pretty fun and …

    Daily Shoot 2 and 3


    For the second day of my daily shoot we had to fill a frame. I didn’t think much of what to take a picture of and decided to just use my glove. So I just took a picture of it and then cropped it so it fit the frame. These …

    Story Telling Therapy


    For this ds106 assignment I decided to pick the one about storytelling and how it’s a new, experimental, “method” of Psychotherapy. My initial thought, while going through the website, was it sounded a bit redundant. There are many different “methods” of psychotherapy (drawing, counseling, acting it out) and I …

    Daily shoot: Post 1
