    Project Ideas


    What is the story I want to share with the world? This is a question I have been struggling with for a while. It is difficult trying to figure out exactly what kind of story I want to make. I have to choose the right subject matter, plot, and format …

    Radio Listen


    Last night, I listened to two radio shows broadcasted on DS106 radio. These shows were How To Survive: Advice From The Five and The Tea on Social Media Radio Show. Listening to these shows was a blast, primarily because I think they both provided a lot of very useful information.…

    Week 8


    This was another slower week in DS106. This Wednesday, our radio show group met so that we could record together. After that, most of my time was spent editing my segment of the show and then putting all of the segments together. I also completed two Daily Creates and …

    Stories From Behind the Counter


    For my portion of the radio show, I started by editing out all mentions of my employer’s name. I did this by muting portions of audio that contained the name and overlaying a scanner beep sound effect on top of that portion. Next, since some of the people in my …

    2 Creates This Week


    Only two creates for this week, and here they are. The first was to show what would happen if a button was pressed. I am still enamored with the animation tool on Procreate, so I decided to make a piece of art using that once again. As soon as someone …

    Radio Show Week 2


    My group has made quite a bit of progress with our Radio Show. Today, we met in the HCC and recorded our portions of the show. We decided to record them together so they would have a consistent sound quality. After they were all recorded, I emailed the raw tracks …

    Week 7


    This week was probably one of the most relaxed I’ve had since the beginning of the course. Despite backloading my week with work, I feel very good about the work I completed. The week began with me meeting up with my radio show group to figure out the details of …

    Radio Show Progress


    This past Tuesday, me and my radio show group met through a facetime call in order to figure out the details for our radio show. We started by talking about the tone we wanted to set, deciding that a more comedic show would probably interest us more than a serious …

    Specter Halloween Commercial


    When my group met to discuss our radio show, I volunteered to create a commercial for a “Spirit Halloween” type store. Honestly, I volunteered to do this because I think the idea of a store that is open for one month only to vanish until next year is really funny. …

    Radio Show Poster


    In preparation for our radio show, the class was assigned a few projects to help promote our show. The bank we had to pick from included posters, bumper stickers, and logos. I chose to create a poster for my promo. The radio show I am doing with my partners is …

    Week 6 of TDC


    Another week, another set of Daily creates. For my first one, I created a set or “words on the wall” for our course. As I stated in my propaganda poster post, I really like messages that are short and direct, so I made a three word message that I think …

    Radio Jingle


    So, one of our assignments for the next two weeks in DS106 is to create a 20-30 minute radio show. This involved getting together with other students as well as creating several smaller pieces of media that can be used in the show. When I met with my group yesterday, …

    Week 6


    This week ended up going a lot better than last week. In order to make sure that I didn’t get behind, I got a few of my assignments done promptly, at the beginning of the week. These included my design reflection and two of my design assignments, one of which …

    License Plate


    For my final design assignment of the week, I decided to create a personalized license plate based on Bob Ross. For this, I started by searching for some information about him. After reading about him on Wikipedia, I learned that he spent a lot of his life in Florida, …

    Propaganda Poster


    For this assignment, I didn’t want to just take an already made poster and substitute its text with something new. I had already done that quite a few times before. I wanted to challenge myself to create my own DS106 Propaganda poster from scratch.

    I wanted my poster to focus …

    Design Blitzd


    So, one of our tasks for this week in DS106 was to go out and take pictures of objects that demonstrated aspects of design. From my understanding, our subject could be anything, so long as it had to do with one of the elements mentioned on the assignment page. Having …

    Three More Creates


    This week was pretty good so far, and I was actually able to complete my daily creates a bit early. To start off, I replaced the word love in a song with Monty Python. Why did it have to be Monty Python? What do they have to do with it? …

    Gamer Zone


    One design project that caught my eye was the Remixed Game Covers assignment. It was interesting to me because the image used as an example was for an Atari game, and Atari is a game company that seems to get very little love from the mainstream public nowadays. After seeing …

    Gif Time Babee


    In one of my past weekly reflections, I lamented the fact that I did not make any gif assignments. Gifs are a form of media that I don’t use that often and had no experience with creating, so the idea of trying to learn an entirely new skill while also …

    Thoughts about Design


    Reviewing the materials on design helped me understand a lot about what goes into creating appealing advertisements. I had noticed some of the film poster tropes that were described in the Vanity Fair video, but the presenter’s breakdown of each genre really helped me understand them better, and the examples …

    Week 5


    This was it. This was the week when everything started to fall apart. Let’s start with the positives. I was able to complete all of the assigned work this week. I was able to all three of my Daily Creates on each of their assigned days, even if some of …

    At the Diner


    The last audio assignment I completed for this class was a sound effects story. For this assignment we had to create a short narrative using only sound effects. Since I had already set my other two audio assignments in restaurants, I decided to make this one “restaurant themed” as well. …

    British Man Orders Food


    Since I am studying theatre, I seem to have naturally gravitated towards some of the more performance-based assignments in the assignment bank. For this one, we had to use our best accent to order food from McDonald’s. I decided to use a British Accent as most of my other accents …

    A Horse: Scene From a Failing Marriage


    Last semester, I took a playwriting course. In it, I ended up writing quite a few short scripts for scenes. While browsing the Audio Assignments in the assignment bank, I saw that one of them was to act out a scene from a play. So, I decided to act out …

    Radio Bumper


    One of the assignments this week was to create a radio bumper for DS106 Radio. For mine, I decided to try end go for a style similar to those of the fictional Mr. New Vegas from the video game Fallout: New Vegas. I wanted to do something with an easygoing …

    Last night, I had the opportunity to listen to the first episode of the ESC podcast on DS106 radio. The episode explored how an episode of an old radio drama, Escape, was produced. The episode that was focused on was Three Skeleton Key, and the podcast host focused on the …
