    Week 7 Summary


    This week was not the greatest in regards to my blogging experience as I had several difficulties uploading and accessing my site. Ultimately tough I was able to eventually get everything done and uploaded properly even though this guy kept popping up.

    I guess I’ll first start off by recapping …

    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 …

    words make me smile mbm


    for this assignment i incorporated the things i love to hear most: greetings, words of affirmation, kissing sounds, and laughter.

    make sure to drink your telephone mbm


    for this assignment i took the recognizable sound of someone drinking water and edited it to sound static. i used my iPhone voice memos to record me drinking water, from the umw-logoed bottle that i used as my image. i then used garage band and the telephone-vocal filer to alter …

    pop pop pop snap


    i made a beat using a poping noise with my lips and a snapping noise with my fingers. my group, The Legends, will be doing a talk show for our radio show and i thought this would be an interesting and useful transition sound.

    Weekly Summary-Week 7-Not Necessarily Harder!


    So, did  this week follow the pattern of previous weeks, where this week would be easier than last week? Well, I wouldn’t say it was much harder. It still kind of breaks the pattern, though, since clearly I didn’t finish the assignments until Friday night! It was a bit more …

    Week 7(?)


    Preeeeetty sure this is week 7. Anyways, we got put together in groups. I like the challenge of random chance. I play mystery heroes almost exclusively in Overwatch. Makes you stretch the proverbial muscles. We have an idea (I think it’s really great), we’ll right the script over the next …

    A sick beat it IS!


    LOL!  Wow, for some reason, this one was much much harder than I thought.  The assignment was to come up with a ‘sick beat’ of my own.  I used Audacity and literally made one noise with my mouth, tapped on my laptop and made another noise with my lips and …

    A Conversational Start!


    So, I will admit-I was quite confused and unsure about the radio thing! I was waiting for others to star getting into groups and start looking for groups, so I could hop in! I ended up in a group of seven people!

    With seven of us in the group, it …

    The Real Characters of DS106 Tagline


    For this assignment, I had to create a tagline expressing who I am. I chose to create one expressing what my character Deidra the Determinator was like. The tagline is kind of long compared to the taglines that they use for the show Real Housewives but I think it’s ok.…

    Economies of Love


    We often drain our wallets on enormous quantities of alcohol and junk food. The next day, when we fall sick or get a bad hangover, what do we attribute it to? Do we curse the dollar spent or the unhealthy alcohol and food consumed?

    Similarly, when a friend drifts apart …

    The start of radio shows begins! Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but I am really not a fan of Audio Assignments. They are just not my forte. But, what must be done will be done, so I did it. I definitely did more than 10 stars worth of Audio …
