    Gravy Time

    by

    In this day and age of technology, the art of making gravy seems to have been lost. The time has come when the grocery store has gravy in jars upon the shelves. It takes far less effort and money to simply make it in a pan at home than most …

    Pinteresting Character – GoT Edition

    by

    For this assignment, I chose to create a Pinterest board for Game of Thrones character Cersei Lannister. The ds106 assignment suggests posting pins of interest for the character and having others guess the character’s identity, but I wanted to caption the actual pictures that I pinned. The juxtaposition of Cersei’s …

    Common Everyday Object

    by

     

    I chose my Mason Jar because it’s a Common Everyday Object to me – capitalization intentional. I also chose this project because Dr. Rish implied that this project might not make the cut for Dr. Crovitz. I’m not sure about the purple wall, or even the green table, but …

    I happily came along this photo while searching for something completely unrelated for the What’s the Meme Assignment.  Yay for strange Google results.  It was so striking, I had to do something with it.

    You’re Doing it Wrong

    by

    Sarcasm is at the heart of this ds106 assignment, which speaks to me on a cellular level. Maybe I’m stuck up. Maybe I think I’m better than other people. Or maybe I just don’t know how to handle other people’s stupidity. I blame food service. Regardless, I love the …

    Shakespearean LOLcat

    by

    I love memes, and I love Shakespeare. So of course, I had to do this DS106 assignment. I used imgur’s meme generator, since it’s so simple. I also made a tutorial to help out anyone who hasn’t made a meme before.

     

    The assignment details can be found here.…

    PSA Billboard

    by

    After a particularly infuriating trip to target, I decided to use the DS106 PSA Billboard assignment to vent my frustrations (Why do people think they can just walk around shopping, playing horrible music LOUDLY on their iphones?!). To accomplish this submission, I messed around with Gimp – a free photo-editing …

    Historical Selfie

    by

    When I saw that DS106 had an Historical Selfie option, I was so excited. I knew I had to use one of my favorite historical figures -Marie Antoinette. To make this project happen, I had to download Gimp (basically, a free and less-user-friendly version of Photoshop). After about an hour …

    Recipe Haiku

    by

    For my first blog post, I chose to write a recipe in haiku form.  The assignment description asked that I write a complete recipe in haiku format, using the traditional 5-7-5 format and including all necessary steps.  Although I enjoy cooking, this was quite a challenge. Inspired by all of …

    Phake Tweets

    by

    For my second blog post I decided to make a “Phake Tweet” for Mark Cuban. This came at a time where the LA Clippers team owner Donald Sterling made some pretty hateful and racist comments towards minorities.

    Mark Cuban is an owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Him and the other …

    What They Might Have Done In Social Media

    by

    This is an assignment I was familiar with in the past.  I thought it was a fun assignment and I enjoyed doing it again.  I chose Bill Cosby because he is someone I respect and value as a comedian, father, and activist.  He says makes a lot of statements that …
