    Next Semester Advice


    What should you know coming into this course?

    Honestly nothing. The less you know the better and you will get the most out of this course not knowing anything coming in. If you have spent a lot of time doing image editing, audio editing/mixing, and video you will be bored …

    A New Mission


    I’m not sure where to go with this one. A new mission? I don’t want to sound rude but I’m not sure what the previous mission was.  One idea I have is based on the fact that spies are constantly trying to one up the other one, and beat others …

    Spy Doggs


    This is a post for this assignment here. This assignment ironically was like herding cats, but instead with dogs. My dogs listen pretty well, but are so hard to sit still together. Anyways, here’s the ad.

    1988 Nissan Pathfinder Review


    This is a review of my 1988 Nissan Pathfinder for this assignment. I really had to try and give a condensed version of this car’s story because I could probably ramble on for over 20 minutes.

    One of my favorite YouTube channels to watch is Regular Car Reviews. I tried …

    Here is the scene review form Bourne Ultimatum.

    If You Had One Second


    One second is not a lot of time. What can be accomplished in a second or less? You could blink or double click a mouse. Your heart could beat once too. In one second, a top fuel dragster can use 11.2 gallons of nitro methane fuel. Usain Bolt could sprint …

    Where My Shoes Take Me


    This assignment was to create a video which shows where my shoes take me. Where do they take me? Watch this and find out!

    What Kind of Spy are You?


    This assignment was pretty fun. I had done something similar before but this one is now connected to the spy theme. This one predicts what sort of spy you are, either a badass or a weird one. The badass being more like Jason Bourne and the weird one is equal …

    Open Sources


    This assignment was pretty cool. As a CS major, I end up downloading a lot of neat things for classes, or someone in a class mentions something that is open source that I should get.

    How many open source programs do I currently have?

    Currently on my computer I have …

    Rad Radio


    I listened to the first radio show that was on air and that was the Miami Spy Convention. There is always some pressure to be the first group presenting your project, even when it’s through the internet and you’re not actually there.

    The Miami Spy Convention follows several radio show …
