To read about how I decided on this assignment and the mashups I’d do, as well as how I made the mashups, check out Part 1: Christian contemporary music. However, I’ll include the instructions below. “This is some sort […]

    30 seconds of… (Part 1): Christian contemporary music

    by
    This is the first in a series of 3 posts with the same assignment, but the assignment is done differently each time. As per the title, first up is a set of Christian contemporary music. When I saw the assignment “10 second song mashup” in the ds106 assignment bank, I thought, “Huh. That sounds like […]

    Mix ‘Em Up

    by
    This assignment was one of my own creation, because I didn’t see anything quite like this in the ds106 assignment bank. It’s pretty straightforward: mashup two songs that are similar to each other (regardless of if it’s the same artist or if the artists are different). These are the details of the assignment I created, […]

    Dylan Elise Reaction

    by
    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 do my own reaction video. […]

    Transitions, Transitions, Transitions!

    by
    Try saying that three times quickly! Today I’ll be exploring various video transitions in Adobe Premiere Pro. The ds106 Video Assignment “Favorite Transition” has very simple instructions: Use your editing software of choice to show us your favorite video transition!  2.5 stars I decided to use Adobe Premiere Pro, since that’s newest video software that […]

    Glo-Ink: New Technology for Books Everywhere

    by
    This week I created a radio commercial for our radio show! When you are driving in the car and a radio commercial comes on you might start to tune the radio out. But, if you were the person selling what the commercial was offering would you want people tuning it out or listening intently? Well, […]

    King of Jesters, and Jester of Kings!

    by
    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 from the Design Assignments in […]

    “Weapons of Mass Percussion” T-Shirt

    by
    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 to do the Design Assignment […]

    Dank Memez Outlet

    by
    As I scrolled through the Design Assignments in the ds106 Assignment Bank, an image caught my eye: At first glance, I thought it said “Memelets”, not Mermlet’s. My misreading paired with the title of the assignment (“Create a Logo that is simple but detailed”) inspired my idea for a fictional company that created memes and […]

    The Story of the Jukebox Hero

    by
    Everyone, gather ’round! It’s time for you to hear the story of the legendary jukebox hero. This story was born before I began ds106, but when I saw the Audio Bank assignment “Create a story using music”, I knew the world deserved to hear the tale. The assignment had only two sentences of description: “Create […]

    Collage of My Pets: Sugar, Shadow, and Stormy

    by
    I’ve never lived without having pets before; I couldn’t imagine life without them. Sugar, Shadow, and Stormy all mean so much to me, so when I saw the assignment “Your love for your pet”, I couldn’t help but pick it as one of my assignments for the week. Here’s the description: Make a collage out […]

    A Very Avenger-y Bunch of Post-It Notes

    by
    When you mix a favorite fandom with a love for world and character building, what do you get? A bit of daydreaming of domestic fluff that can result in creating grocery lists and post-it notes. I’m a fan of Marvel movies, and I find it fun to imagine what the Avengers are like outside of […]

    A Dreamy Drive Down the Pacific Coast Highway

    by
    In the summer of 2019, before I started my first year of college, my family took a trip out west to California for 2 weeks. We had never gone on any vacation like this before, and it was absolutely amazing. This was why, when I saw the assignment “Story Map”, I knew I had to […]

    Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof Because I’m happyyyyyyyyy Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth Because I’m happyyyyyyyyy Those are some of the lyrics to the song “Happy”, a well-known pop tune that came out in 2013. We all have certain songs that make us feel […]

    A Jumbled Poem: Words from 2001

    by
    2001. What went on that year? Well, I was born. The Ravens won their first Super Bowl ever. Those are a couple fairly important things, in my opinion. However, other than that, there were several words added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Let’s set the record straight: it was the year the words ack, auto-suggest, blade […]

    The Bedroom of My Dreams…

    by
    As I was browsing through the assignment bank, the “Create your own room” web assignment caught my eye. Maybe it was because of the house-creation online games I used to play as a kid, or perhaps because for quite some time now, I’ve had a Pinterest board for cool home-and-bedroom-related ideas (many of them far […]

    Rock ‘N Roll ‘N Rush

    by
    Anyone who has talked to me about music for at least five minutes has probably heard me mention the name of my favorite rock band: Rush. If you don’t know who Rush is, let me introduce you. Once upon a lighted stage, approaching the unreal…* There were three fantastic musicians who formed the band Rush […]
