    The Best of The Best


    So, how do you quantify the best of so many great entries?  I don’t want to put a winner out, just a display a few of the posts I enjoyed the most.  I eliminated anything I worked on including collaborative projects – hats off to my radio show colleagues.

    First …

    My two TDC ideas are:


    Photo Directions.

    Create your own instructions using just pictures.  For example, if you wanted to teach someone how make toast, you might take a picture of a piece of bread.  A picture of the bread in the toaster.  Etc, etc.  One picture for …

    So the video was corrupted.  I gave up again for a bit but then I received the third email.

    Yeah, that about spells it out.  So I decided to tempt fate and open up some of the links.  This is nuts.  Oh, but, begin at the beginning.  The email I mentioned was from [email protected] – not exactly the kind of thing you want to open attachments from.  I did …

    Okay, so I got this email out of the blue.  Normally, I just delete these sort of things because they’re stuff like *–# New Russian bRides 8 #1–  or Is Your Husband Cheating on U?.  This one was different somehow.  I’m not sure, exactly what it was that drew me …

    Irony Has a New Name


    I’m not sure if the world of ballet is ready.  But with Christmas fast approaching a certain someone thought it best to try her hand.  If you feel yourself a bit ill watching, perhaps it’s best to just shake it off.

    The World Wonders


    Somewhere in the Pacific, two mighty navies clash.  The fate of the world hangs in the balance.  One man reports on his actions in that war.  Meanwhile, we hear a message echoing in his head.  A message that almost brought disaster.

    The Static is Normal


    I spent part of this Wednesday past listening to Creepy Chronicles.  In general, I thought there was a good deal of technical effort put into the production.  The transition between segments was smooth and the sound levels seemed to remain constant.  The individual presenters all seemed to enjoy their work …

    AudioAssignments1332 – Reverse a song to see if anyone can guess which one it is?  Too easy.

    The below song is definitely in the theme of Tales From DS106.  In fact, the entire album really is.  The Album, which was released in 1990, was the third studio album from the …

    All I hear is Static



    This week is the beginning of the radio program project.  It’s collaborative.  This is both good and bad.  It means that you get to work with other people and get to see different viewpoints.  That’s the good part.  The actual collaboration part is not.  I mean, think about it …

    Thoughts and Ideas


    Planet of the Vampires.  Made in 1965, I spent most of the first part of the movie wondering if they were ever going to fire their guns.  I was debating if they even had the effects for them.  None of that has to do with design.

    The Angel Islington


    A minimalist poster for television?  Why not?  Hey, I remember when there were new episodes of MacGyver airing (that means broadcast).  I chose something both old and new.

    Canon in D


    Massimo Vignelli’s Canon is, actually a quite informative work.  It does touch on very important elements of style and, as a non-designer, it helps you to appreciate what you see in everything from advertisements to product logos.  I’m actually not being sarcastic here, either.  This would be a good text …

    Ideas as Ideas


    I think there are some great opportunities for collaborative storytelling.

    Idea First.  Just be some basic ground rules.  Each author has absolute authority for their chapter, including killing characters off, so no long term plans.  If done as a serial, it will be easier than if a complete production.  If …
