    Honest Abe Explores Times Square


    On April 14th, 1865 President Abraham Lincoln arrived at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. This day lives in infamy. President Lincoln watched “Our American Cousin” in amusement from his balcony seat, and halfway through act two, when the crowd erupted with laughter, he was time warped and transported to Time …

    Abe Lincoln – Master of Karaoke


    For my final piece of media to be used in the final project, I have created an audio clip. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find “pretend to be a former president and sing karaoke” in the audio assignment repository. My goal was to close out ds106 with something light and fun, so …

    News of Abe Spreads


    The news of Abraham Lincoln had to spread quickly. In the world we live in today, news is instantly broken via social networking sites such as Twitter, Reddit, and Facebook. I wanted to show examples of news breaking via social networking sites, but thought Twitter was too …

    Creative Commons Joke


    For this assignment I was tasked with remixing photographs by Jonathan Worth. While I’m not quite sure if a video was meant for this assignment, I went for it anyway. I was at a complete blank as to what I should do, so I went with what I feel …

    Remix Explained


    After watching parts 1 and 3 of everything is a remix, I felt much more knowledgeable on the subject of remixes. While my prior understanding of remix was just the audio version in which artists would come out with new versions of a song, this series expanded my mind …

    Final Project Gameplan


    I had a lot of trouble deciding on a character to use for the final project. It seemed as though each character I chose I could find a a problem with. Eventually I decided on Abraham Lincoln, with a twist, in that he will be living in modern society. There …

    Wrapping It Up


    I am very much looking forward to the next few weeks working with video. I downloaded MPEG streamclip this week, and already had iMovie on my computer. I have had a good amount of previous experience editing video with iMovie and feel pretty comfortable with the software.

    The Genres of Youtube


    After reviewing the Youtube Genres document, I felt there was a crucial piece of the Youtube puzzle missing. A lot of the genres added were very specific, only pertaining to a small portion of the Youtube video population. Music videos, something I think is one of the core foundations …
