    Cracking of Bones and Stretching of Flesh


    We started brainstorming last night and after an hour of bouncing off of each other and worldbuilding, we had an outline on the google doc. The basic idea was mine originally, but that seems so strange to say now because by the time we had finished talking, the nighttime hours …

    In Reference to the Two Mystic Volumes


    Dearest Jordan,

    It has only been a week since our last correspondence, but it has felt like much longer. Between my scholarly pursuits, regular riding practice, my father’s lengthened business trip in Broque, helping my sister with the family trade, and my many other necessary engagements, I have hardly had …

    The Awesome Beauty of Hinez Ketchup Packets


    For my design blitz, I decided to take photos of signs or advertisements or announcements-type things around Mary Wash. And once I started looking, I saw how they are everywhere. Some have pretty good designs, some maybe needed one more look over, and some you wonder who gave the okay …

    High School Baseball Coaches, This One’s For You


    “Create some sort of graphic. Design the overall graphic to convey some sort of feeling or theme, but then have text saying something completely contradictory to the theme or feeling. Sort of like one of those old anti-motivational posters, but with more design than a black box with a white …

    “Make a collage out of your pictures in the software of your choice and turn it into some rad Album art! Experiment with filters, add shapes and colors, and think about how you can create a design out of your photos.

    Maria Popova Does The Unimaginable


    The extent of my design knowledge is pretty much just me saying “oh, that looks like a sick album cover” at any picture anyone takes that looks like it could be a sick album cover. I’ve never really designed anything. Though I have heard many blanket requests for various club …

    Report # 8-2-5-B, Regarding Complexes 1-6, Subject J6


    Report # 8-2-5-B.

    Subject J6 is revealing curious tendencies, namely fixations on specific subject matters. These fixations change every week with what is now unsurprising regularity. Research Assistant B1R0l admits fully that he was slightly familiar with Subject J6’s most recent fixation: Audio Complexes. This resulted in a renewed vigor …

    Coroner’s Tale


    {TW: mentions of blood, dead body, and a coroner} 

    So I was thinking about what environments tend to have recordings, and I thought about the coroner’s office. My only knowledge of such things comes from movies or tv or books, but there seems to be a consensus. When doctors or …

    Fungi Growing on the Radio Waves


    I don’t often listen to the radio, and when I do, it is not much of a radio show but more like a Spotify playlist broadcast into every car within the right radius. Tuning into ds106 Radio on Tuesday night at around 8 o’clock was like landing on the moon; …

    Bob Ross has his paints to create forest landscape, I tried sound.

    “Neil, You Gotta Hear This”


    I have dabbled in listening to audio storytelling, meaning basically that I have listened to almost all of the Magnus Archives, and sometimes Trixie and Katyas’ Bald and the Beaufiful podcast, but Moon Graffiti was completely different. Moon Graffiti somehow managed to create a world out of sounds. It was …

    The Visual Blind Date


    This was my first major introduction to photography and visual (digital) media. We had met briefly before in crowded rooms, hurriedly given each other’s names by mutual acquaintances before wandering our own separate ways to the dessert tables. But this week, it was just the two of us. It started …

    I stayed in my dorm room and completed the challenge in 8 minutes.
