    1.5 liter sodas are quite unfortunate.


    This picture is placed here simply to distract from the massive amount of text in this blog entry.

    I was in Kroger a few days ago buying soda and I got very annoyed.  They are carrying 1.5-liter Pepsi products in massive quantities.  They are probably carrying Coke ones too, but …

    Clothes for My Twilight Dolls


    When I began, I had the idea of making a whole wardrobe for each character and even making them with poster board backing so that they would stand up, but I really need a break from school, so that will come eventually or never, or when my brain feels content …

    Twilight Paper Dolls


    I was going to wait until I could make and upload clothes for these and make a how-to on how to make them stand up with poster board, but since I am still putting the finishing touches on my Rochantasy essay and trying to remember trivial characters from the books …

    Young ds106 webhopper…


    If you are reading this, you have stumbled into a world where you will create things each week. Instead of reading boring chapters in a textbook that you will only get $5.00 for if you sell it back to those creepy guys who give you “ca$h for book$,” you will …

    When Florrie Takes Over, a mashup


    For my mashup, I ended up taking the instrumental track of “When Love Takes Over”originally by David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland and combining it with the acappella vocals of two tracks (“Panic Attack” and “Call 911″) by English singer-songwriter Florrie.

    I first heard about Florrie on Popjustice.com. Her “Introduction” …

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the videoessay


    Here it is. I tried to have a theme of “this movie is about how Scott is basically an asshole and learns that he is one and therefore becomes a cool dude” but it may have been overshadowed by “yeah, real life should be like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” …

    Scott Pilgrim’s Hold on My Heart


    Nothing can compete with my love for Scott Pilgrim. I’m sorry Girls Aloud. I’m sorry ds106. I’m sorry Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries. I’m sorry Edward. Oh yeah wait. I’m really not sorry about that last one…

    But listen all, you’ve just got to face the facts that you …

    Five Weeks to Go


    Hello, blog. I know I haven’t updated you in awhile, but I just wanted to let you know that I’m alive and sort of well (even if I almost die every time I leave my apartment to walk outside from allergies) and I’ve been living in a mountain of homework, …

    A Very SparkNote’d Webstory


    My original concept when was doing something like “SparkNotes from Hell.” I owe many understandings of complex and ancient knowledge to SparkNotes and unlike many of my peers, who would read them instead of the novels themselves, I always used them for background reading, especially since I never had a …

    A Very Shakespearian Web Story


    I love updated versions of Shakespeare, especially the Hamlet/Facebook one, so I’ve been thinking of doing a version of Othello or A Midsummer Night’s Dream (or a combination of those if I do something with Craigslist). I haven’t picked the website yet, although I have it narrowed down to about …

    Seven Deadly Sins: Barbie-Style


    I have nothing new (yet) to post for ds106, so in the meantime, I am posting two photos from an Art assignment of mine that’s due tomorrow. We had a list of fifteen items and had to take a picture showing each one of them. If you are interested, all …

    Hey guys, I’m so jealous you did this!


    I am going to keep this short and sweet, partly because the nice and beautiful weather is giving me death by allergies and partly because there is a nice comfy bed with my name on it that has seriously been missing me this week.

    The following mentions are things that …

    ds106 FO LYFE: Track 1


    So earlier this evening after Jim Groom told us about this project and many of us shuddered with fear, Jordan, Andrew, and I sat down and started thinking about what we should do for the Sound Effect Story.

    Andrew: So guys, what do we want to do?

    *All check …

    Week 1 Days 5, 6, & 7


    So I have completely not kept up with blogging about my Daily Shoot photos and I apologize for that. In the next couple days I will post what I have been working on (for another class-a very intense project) and hopefully you will feel slightly sympathetic for me. But onwards! …

    Hey, check me out as Pokemon #4444!


    I was really excited to try out the Pokemon card design assignment. I have played at least one of every game that has come out since the beginning (borrowing my brother and sister’s Red, Blue, and Yellow). I currently own Pokemon Silver, Crystal, Sapphire, Emerald, LeafGreen, Diamond, Platinum, and …

    Week 1 Days 3 & 4: Daily Shoot Assignment


    I’m combining these two days since I accidentally skipped my own personal commentary on them.

    Day 3

    Even though it was a glorious day outside, I had no idea what to photograph. I originally wanted something to show the warm temperature/beautiful weather, such as a thermometer, but I could not …

    Week 1 Day 2: Daily Shoot Assignment


    I was not as pleased with this photo as with the one from yesterday’s assignment (although it does amuse me quite a bit). I’m currently using my mom’s camera and unfortunately it does not take inside shots very well (although I am told it works fairly well outside). In a …
