    Dylan Elise Reaction


    Earlier this week, as I was looking through the ds106 video assignments, the assignment “DS106ers React!” caught my eye.

    I’ve watched plenty of reaction videos before (usually reactions to music videos or music in general). They’re very entertaining, especially when it’s music I love. Because of this, I decided to …

    Radio Show Reflections


    This past week, the ds106 class presented our radio shows live on the ds106 radio! I had the opportunity to listen on Wednesday night, and I heard and live-tweeted three shows: A Day in a Pandemic, Walking Memory Ave (my group’s show), and Messy March.

    Here’s my thoughts.

    The first …

    Project Ideas


    I’m amazed that we’re already more than halfway through the semester. Looking back, we’ve covered so much ground, and I’ve learned so much in terms of digital creation just in these last couple of months.

    Thinking ahead, we’ve got a few weeks in which we’ll be exploring video, remixes/mashups, and …

    Week 8 Daily Creates


    Heya! Here’s my Daily Creates for Week 8.

    #tdc3348 Went for an idyllic drive in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland—the mountains reminded me of Yosemite!

    Younger Me and Older Me in One Picture?


    It’s more likely than you think. (And no, it’s not time travel!)

    I harnessed the powers of Adobe Photoshop in order to create my radio show promo for this week.

    Here’s the final product!

    I didn’t expect this to be quite as fun an assignment as I thought, but I …

    ds106 radio bumper! (take 2)


    As part of my contribution to our radio show, I created a radio bumper!

    For my first bumper, I didn’t introduce myself; I made it more of an advertisement for the radio station in general. This time, I wanted to give it a more personal touch, since it might be …

    Daily Creates of Week 7


    Hi there! Here’s my Daily Creates for Week 7. I’m amazed we’re already halfway through the semester!

    #tdc3346 #ds106 Here's a photo of Union Station's ceiling! I saw it when my friend (and fellow UMW student) Ruth and I took the train home for fall break in the fall semester …

    Let’s Get This (Radio) Show on the Road!


    Yesterday, I met with my radio show group to kickstart our project! Our team is myself, Ari, Meghan, Conner, and Morgan. The general theme we picked was childhood & our college experiences.

    It was great meeting with them—since this class is online and asynchronous, I’ve barely met anyone over Zoom …

    King of Jesters, and Jester of Kings!


    When I was much younger, my parents introduced me and my sister to the movie The Court Jester. For me, this 1955 classic was my first medieval/fairytale-themed rom-com movie I ever saw—The Princess Bride is the second one I can think of.

    One of the assignments I picked this week …

    Week 6 Daily Creates


    Well, hello! Here’s this week’s Daily Creates that I participated in.

    #tdc3335 #ds106 My cats sometimes sleep in the weirdest positions! Shadow is the black and white one, and Stormy is the gray and white one. Stormy's resting his head against my leg, which he almost never does, and Shadow …

    “Weapons of Mass Percussion” T-Shirt


    When I participated in Week 3’s Daily Creates, I didn’t expect to do anything with my creations later on. I had thought that I really liked my caution sign (“Caution: Weapons of Mass Percussion”), and it would be fun to have on a t-shirt or something.

    That’s why I decided …

    Deep Thinking on Design


    Although I haven’t ever really thought about becoming a graphic designer, and I don’t think that’s what’s in store for me in the future, thinking about visual design and reading and watching this week’s assigned material was quite fascinating for me.

    The first couple things I checked out were the …
