    Irri Collage


    Here’s a collage that describes my character, Irri. He likes ice, hates spiders, lives in a magical gnome world, and is nice. I think I summarized everything well in this picture and description.

    Stills From: Will He


    CW: dark images, possible blood, death

    I wrote about this song last week but didn’t go into detail about the video because I was focussing on the auditory feel of it. Luckily, I get too look at it now, so let’s go!



    There’s a lot happening on the …

    Photography ~ I’m bad at it


    My knowledge of photography is very limited and sad. That being said, I do a lot of photography. I do a lot with film cameras and iphone cameras only, I avoid high-quality digital cameras on purpose because while I love how crisp and detailed they can be, I don’t want …

    How Does a Song Make You Feel?


    The song I am examining is Joji’s Will He: found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2zXxQHBpd8


    Pretty easily one of the most confusingly emotional songs I’ve come across in a while, Will He is very strange. It very obviously a sad song about a break up, but the chord progression is haunting. The …

    Facing Your Fears


    My largest fear is probably spiders. I know it’s a common fear, and I know they’re nothing to worry about, but it just surfaced recently and it’s terrible. I was on vacation in Ireland with my roommate and I was in bed and I felt what I thought was my …

    Nealcidion brachiale


    I decided to attempt the random wikipedia article writing challenge and my article is

    Nealcidion brachiale

    or, a species of beetle in the family Cerambycidae. This is the whole article. I will now tie it to my character.

    Irri was always afraid of bugs. When he was younger, he was …

    Irritated the Gnome


    This is me working through the creation of a character. Going with our theme, and looking over the archetypes of mythical tales and such, I figured I would probably be a gnome. It’s not that I’m small and stout or anything, I just feel like my character should be a …

    El Chupacabra, what was that


    I just finished watching a mockumentary on the chupacabra on Animal Planet in the Lost Tapes series. It was interesting enough, I guess, but the storytelling in it was terrible. The show opens with a couple receiving a video camera for their nine year old daughters birthday and then they …

    Week Two Reflection


    I thought the work load last week was large, this upped it quite a bit. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy it though! I got to make a lot of things that I definitely wouldn’t have made otherwise. The daily challenges are very diverse and interesting and …

    Unsuspecting Friends


    A little collage of some nice shots I have of some friends!


    I went through my old photos and picked the best candid/slightly embarrassing photos I could find and put them together in photoshop to make this collage. It was a little time consuming getting everything to the same …

    I’m Ready for my Close Up



    Here is a friend

    Up on a mountain

    How did she get up there?

    Why is she so tall?



    Another photoshop thing for mixed prompt, I enjoyed making this. I hadn’t keyed out the background of an image in a while and enjoyed making little details like …

    Song in Another Room


    You’re trying to do your homework when your brother’s band starts playing in the garage again. You can’t count how many times you’ve heard this song in a row. Your brother’s friend Cameron’s voice is just so grating this many listens in a row. Your mom calls you to help …

    Week One Reflection


    I enjoyed the assignments of the first week. I did them all in a short period of time because I added the class late but I’m very excited for where this class will go. I worked with a new editing plugin I got for the soundcloud introduction and I made …

    Is Every Story the Same?


    I think the statement that every story is the same is, at base value, true, but that’s ignoring the complexities of individual stories. Every example I try to think of does fall into the hero’s journey shown in the video, but I think that’s just because it’s such a simple …
