    Use the Voice


    So, I Used The Voice, which means I mimicked the voice of Don LaFontaine and created an alternate opening for The Twilight Zone. I simply took the actual script as written by Sterling and made a more epic version using some common tropes. I also tried to get a good …

    I tried to listen to the ds106radio last night, but failed miserably. Thankfully everyone witnessed this spectacle and I don’t think anybody would say I didn’t try to listen to ds106 radio. I’ll try again tonight. But I’ve heard nothing about how they’re planning on fixing the stream issues. It …

    The Radio Show


    Well, I gave a listen to my group’s radio show so far. It’s not bad. I see a lot of room for processing. The need for music and effects. If we had the time I’d like re-record the show to slow it down a little. I feel like it lacks …

    I Can Read Movies

    Pulpnight Sun

    This project was a little tricky, because I had to play with the layers and the smudge tool a lot in order to maintain the aesthetic of the original design. I found the sun online and just layered one on top of the other. I couldn’t the font …

    The Big Hip Hop

    Macklemore Lyrics from ‘Can’t Hold Us’

    This is a pretty straightforward assignment where the only computer work is about putting text onto a photo. The hardest part for me was figuring out a top-100 song. I was forced to enlist the help of my much more hip girlfriend. And the …

    Turn A GIF Into A FIG


    I had actually been wanting to do a project like this as soon as I realized how .gif were put together – last week when I learned because of this course. Anyway, I did mine a little different and maybe a little slow and ridiculously. I followed the normal procedure …

    Poetry Reading


    I’m not the largest connoisseur of poetry, though I did take an Art of Literature course with our Pulitzer Prize winning professor before she won any major awards. She even read over some of my poetry. I like to tell people that and leave out that it was a 200-level …

    Sound Scapes


    I even went with the Deep Field photo from the assignment prompt, because I love the deep field photo. It’s something I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. It’s the closest most of us will get to Time Travel. When you look at that photo you’re looking BILLIONS OF …

    Dancing Jim All Over The World


    I did this assignment for a number of reasons, but mostly because only one other person has done it and it’s one-star, so it’s unlikely anyone else will. I thought it might be fun to up the game a little. Earlier this semester Jim riffed an assignment by Brian Bennett, …

    Design Safari


    This book is a sci-fi version of Moby Dick, where instead of a vast ocean and a whaling ship, the story takes place in a wasteland of illogical and dangerous train tracks called the Railsea. In this version of Moby Dick, the ship is a train. The typography of the …

    Scott LoDown 012


    That’s a pretty awesome opening to 012 LoDown. Well done, Scott. Anyhow, this sounds like it’s going to be a very productive episode. I’m excited. I’m a linux user! No one cares… Narrate my process? It’s kind of personal. How about I tell you about some of my process? I …

    Scott LoDown 011


    Whoa, this sounds different. Scott usually has this sort of deep, single toned voice, but today it’s a little lightweight and distant. Ha! he just himself droney. lol. Downloading is for suckers. I only stream. Jim Groom burn. I wonder if Scott Lo is getting paid for this? I feel …
