    Radio Dispatch

    by

    I spent a good amount of time exploring Frequency 2156. My opinion on the site is that it’s freaking amazing. I was instantly intrigued by all the radio dispatches and spent time listening to some. The entire site as a whole is a digital story made up of smaller …

    Film Reviews and a GIF!

    by

    La Jetée was interesting. I figured I wasn’t going to really enjoy it after reading that it was made up of only images, but I did. I thought the use of the black and white images made the film eerie, in a good way (if that’s even a thing lol). …

    Today, I read two short stories. The first short story I read was, There will come soft rains by Ray Bradbury. This story was interesting to say the least. I don’t usually read stories that are based in the future, so that was different than what I am used to. …
