    Fan Fiction


    So, for the last design challenge, I did minimalist posters for Harry Potter.

    This time, I wanted to make a minimalist poster for one of my favorite movies (and books-that’s right, I’ve read the books by Michael Crichton), Jurassic Park. The moment I wanted to convey was the first terror …

    To the future ds106 student, let me give you this organized list of advice for your semester:

    Be interesting or interested in something else. I know that sounds like the lamest advice in the world, but this class thrives on you. The class can be really fun if you let…

    Another piece for my final.


    So, remember that awkward moment during Star Wars: A New Hope when those storm troopers get Jedi mind-tricked by Obi Wan Kenobi? I had just finished talking with my dad about whether or not we should buy Star Wars on Blue-Ray when my internet went out and I got this …

    Now that this is two weeks late.


    Ok, this has been ridiculous and I feel like I have my old-man-nature really showed itself on this assignment. I had a hard time with the movie getting on my computer and then saving it and then the actual talking part and then the uploading it to youtube bit. Gah. …

    I’m an idiot.


    You may have noticed my lack of a video for the Video Essay assignment for our class. Well, that would be because I’m an idiot and didn’t save things correctly and subsequently, the project that I finished is back to the first scene. So, that little bit will be late(r …

    Pixar through the ages.


    Time for another moment of honesty here: I think Pixar is the best film producing company out there. Their films (with the one exception of Cars because I didn’t like it as much as the others) have been consistently made some of the best movies. Apparently, loads of other people …

    First part of final project!!


    Yay!! Ok, so last week we did the Webstory bit with changing of actual websites and such.

    So, I applied that to Google to give some highlights from the story of The Great Gatsby. Such as how important symbolism and who even likes Daisy anyway?

    It’s a little big for …

    Sweater Wars


    For my webstory, I created a news article about the Great Sweater Wars between Cosby lovers and Mr. Rogers fans. I went to NY Times and Changed as many text things as I could. Such as where it is (Neighborhood), the links to other news articles (all sweater themed), captions …

    I know I’m only a sophomore, but next year I’m going to be a junior. Which means my parents are starting to ask questions and I’m going to need answers. So, I started looking into my future. And what does my future possibly hold? Canada.

    I kind of maybe think …

    Tilt shift


    Alice is an artist who does some pretty awesome things. My favorite of hers is creating tilt shifts in Van Gogh paintings (posted here). She uses photoshop to create something new out of some of the world’s most famous and notorious art pieces. So creative and wonderfully done. …

    Final project?


    Hmm. I’ve been having a really hard time thinking of a final project idea. I think I’m going to do something with telling stories from different uses of pictures. Not like in the 5 card story assignment we already had, but more like creating pictures to convey different stories. I’m …

    Minimalist Movie Posters


    As I told you in the last post, I decided that we have reached the point in the semester where I can be honest with you: I love Harry Potter. I mean, really love Harry Potter. Not to the extent of writing Fan Fiction (because that’s just too much!) but …

    This new band of a sweet rabbit and her squirrel background dancers sing titles such as, “Hibernating With you,” “Breaking Into the Vegetable Garden,” and my personal favorite, “Do …

    Junk mail


    Having a junk mail folder is really great. Unless, of course, you get an e-mail from a potential job offer over the summer and it goes into the junk mail folder and you see it right before you clear it out. Naturally, this was about three weeks after the employer …

    I am obsessed.


    Best new procrastinating site ever. Google has teamed up with museums all around the world so that you can view some of the greatest artwork at an amazing quality. Best part? You can zoom in closer than you can probably get if you were to see it in person. Check

    Thoughts and prayers for the safety of everyone in Egypt. Fingers crossed for the best outcome.

    Old man sweater day.


    Have you looked outside today? The weather is practically demanding I wear an old man sweater today. Who am I to say no to such a demand?

    A screencap I found on tumblr that describes how “old man sweater days” usually go:

    I am a terrible photographer.


    I mean terrible. Horrendous.

    Subsequently, I have made the decision for aesthetic reasons to only post pictures that I take that may happen to be OK instead of all of them.

    Instead: I will show you a picture taken by a real photographer:

    This is Mr. Clean actor House Peters …
