    Fritz Lang’s M Reflection


    I personally enjoyed how clip was in black and white, it really changes the vibes it gives off. The clock seemed to portray tension, for example, when the clock went off at noon in the house, as well as in other places, all the focus was solely on the noise …

    This week we did not have that many assignments, instead the primary focus was on the radio show. Although there was not much to do, the radio show was somewhat time consuming.

    This week was back to audio. Audio is becoming a lot easier for me, the practice is beyond beneficial. I enjoyed doing the assignments, while some were more challenging than others. I am fairly impressed with what I learned how to do.

    The Greek


    For this assignment, I did an epigraph from The Wire, season 2 episode 12.

    Business, always business

    I just watched the episode and found times where people said …

    Paying closer attention


    This week was a lot more work, but it was worth every second! The element of design extends to so many things, which can be taken for granite. I had fun doing the assignments, although some were more challenging than others. Overall this week went pretty smoothly! If you pay …

    The design blitz was a little harder for me! I struggled to find things that correlated to the assignment.

    Explore the unknown


    This assignment was fun, I loved thinking of a logo for my blog. Since my theme is Exploring the Deep Sea of Technology, I thought “explore the unknown” was perfect. I knew nothing about technology before this class, and honestly, this course was way out of my comfort zone. I …

    Power, Corruption, and Brains


    This assignment (4 stars) really started to make me think. I loved connecting people to certain categories. 

    Avon was in the middle, of course, because everything always comes back to him. Avon’s character is powerful no matter where he is, but he is also corrupt in the way he does …
