    Daily Create #19: The Danger Zone

    The corner of Winslow Arizona holds a great deal of history. So WHY NOT stage a mock cowboy duel? That’s what he thought, at least. Standing there, hands visibly shaking, the man gingerly placed his hand on his pistol holster and met the gaze of his opponent. The opponent followed suit and confidently raised his […]

    My D.S. Assignment #2: The Healthy Vine Challenge

    The inspiration behind this assignment can be attributed to my eclectic mother.

    Look, Listen, and Analyze: The Joker Pencil Trick/Mob Scene

    For this blog post, I decided to analyze a scene from The Dark Knight, more speficially, the scene when the Joker interrupts a mob meeting and dramatically shows them “a pencil trick” with very dark and dangerous connotations.

    Ebert: “How To Read A Movie” via Q. Tarantino & S. Kubrick

    To begin, I found Ebert’s descriptive of movement in cinematography to be very interesting. He explained how the movement of characters, in addition to the movement of camera angle, can infer both positive and negative connotations. A quote of his that I found very helpful was, “Right is more positive, left more negative. Movement to […]

    Audio Assignment #1: May I Take Your Order?

    English muffins and tea, please. Where could I possibly be from? I chose this audio assignment because I think it taps in to the notion that McDonald’s, although they may appear to be universal, can be quite different from country to country. I have been inside McDonald’s in Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Shanghai, Melbourne, London, etc. […]
