    @pianoman tweets: ds106 FanFiction

    by
    Ah, fandom. I considered doing some Star Wars fan fiction since I watch the whole prequel trilogy last week (so bad, but still so good) but deemed SW fanfic to be too cliche, not that it isn’t awesome. I though and thought and thought about what I really loved in life, the reason I get ...

    Mashup Possibilities

    by
    So far, I’ve had three ideas for a mashup possibilities. As follows: 1. I considered mixing clips from Martin Scorsese movies to just include swearing and gunshots. Youtube videos by That Guys With The Glasses that were going to be helpful but it seemed like an awful lot of editing. 2. I considered mashing up ...

    For my video essay, I choose to use the new Coen Brothers movie, “True Grit.” I was originally planning to do “No Country For Old Men,” but my first rip didn’t work and I immediately gave up on it. Luckily, I had True Grit on my computer so I decided to save myself some time ...

    by
    It’s 106 miles to Chicago. We’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it. (My first try at an animated gif. Used Mpegstream clip and Photoshop Elements. It took me a loooong time. I downloaded Gimp but it wouldn’t open properly. I was first ...

    Some Art, Dammit

    by
    Here are my first two attempts at a submitted assignment for ds106. I like the idea of The Big Caption but it is really hard to figure out how to remix a photo of something really important without mocking those in the photo. Click em for the big versions. The photos (from boston.com) are of ...

    My Problem With ds106 Radio (Sorry Jim)

    by
    For the past week, it seems like 90% of the tweets in the #ds106 feed are about ds106 radio. It seems that everyone who is tweeting regularly is in love with the radio station. I, too, like it and think it is an awesome, unprecedented (for me) addition to a class. I scoff at my ...

    by
    Escondido Falls likes just a mile in from the ocean in Malibu, California. Less than an hour hike past a street littered with old Spanish-style mansions overlooking the ocean, a set of three waterfalls fall into tiered pools.

    It’s the end of week two of ds106 and I believe I’ve got my blog temporarily (almost spelled that wrong) finished, if that point of no return even exists in the blogging (I don’t think it does.)

    Is that a bag of gold Gardner? Why yes Jimi, yes it is.

    by
    My first attempt at what seems like it will be a common experiment in this experimental class: the mashup. According to wikipedia, I’ve created a new derivative work.

    No Girls Allowed?

    by
    I realize it’s not very PC, so I’ll explain that I really don’t mean “No Girls Allowed” in a malicious way. It comes from a favorite book from my childhood. I used to burn through Berenstain Bears books like there was no tomorrow. Around the time that my mother was pregnant with my younger sister, ...
