    Tune in to Listen

    by

    For my group, I created a poster to advertise our show, Myths, Legends, and Character Conversations. I used Adobe Spark to create the poster. I picked a size for the poster and then found the background picture. The picture came from the Adobe Spark picture library, and I thought it …

    You are listening…

    by

    For my group’s radio project, I created a radio bumper (4 stars). I thought and wrote about what to say in the bumper. I incorporated our group name, Myths, Legends, and Character Conversations, into the bumper and then decided to also add that we would be telling our characters’ stories. …

    Thoughts about Design and the Readings

    by

    Before reading these articles, I had no idea about all that goes into design. Design is something that is easy to forget about because it is so common and we see it in everything we use. I like how Vignelli goes into detail about the purposes of design and how …

    A Cloud of Words

    by

    I created this world cloud for this assignment (2 stars) to represent all of the things my character represents and loves. Obviously, animals are her main love since that is her power. I included various animals that she has helped. I also put hero and crime fighter because her mission …

    Week Five Summary

    by

    This week was pretty crazy. In my other class, I had multiple exams and papers due so this week was stressful. Going into the week, I was nervous about the audio because I do not like to hear myself speak. However, the assignments I did were fun and not too …

    Brainstorm for Radio Show

    by

    For the radio show, I think it would be a great idea to incorporate a live tweet on listening to a myth, legend, or tale. Since many of these stories were told from generation to generation by word of mouth, I think that would be a good way to listen …

    Commuter Sounds

    by

    When I saw this (3.5 stars), I thought it would be good to tell the story of commuting to classes. I am a commuter student, so this is my routine of driving to campus everyday. I used freesound to find all of the sounds and was amazed with all …

    by

    I really think that daily creates are one of my favorite things to do each week. I like how quick and unique the ideas are. For the first tweet, I thought about different people and realized that one of the ultimate power couples would be a great option. George and …

    You’re Listening to DS106 Radio

    by

    This was my first assignment using Audacity, so I was a little worried about using it. I used freesound.org to download the radio tuning and background music. I added the tuning/static to add a sound effect and to make the bumper have something different than just my voice. I then …

    Live Tweeting Anansi Boys

    by

    Going into this, I had no idea what to expect. I had never participated in a live-tweeting session or listened to a story like this. It was an cool story with so much production! The scenes were able to be differentiated through the use of the music changing. They also …

    “Moon Graffiti”

    by

    This was a very interesting story to listen to. It sounds extremely realistic and makes you feel like you are in space. The way the scene is described it makes you not need visual aid because you can imagine it.  Through the tone of their voices, you can tell the …

    I felt this week was much more stressful. I started the assignments early in the week, but still felt like there was so much to do! My favorite assignment this week was the photoblitz because I got to look for the items I needed to photograph, and then I tried …

    “Once Upon a Time” Review

    by

    I decided to watch the pilot episode of “Once Upon a Time” on Netflix. The show uses a lot of fairytales and myths, so I thought it would be a perfect example. I have watched several episodes before and decided to rewatch the first episode. The show uses a lot …
