    Week 5 dev log/reflection


    And with that, I close the book on this blog and the class it was made for. It was a lot of fun in some parts, a lot of stress in others, and the whole time I was learning. The assignments made me learn about new techniques and programs, forced …

    Ages into the future is a land inhabited by a wide variety of strange fauna and broken monuments. Tucked in a cave is a family of rock like beings, hundreds of smaller ones working under a monolithic queen. It tells one small rock in particular to follow their dreams, and …

    ds 106: Create A Commercial (5 stars)


    Though it’s not much of an advertisement per say, it tells Rudy just what it is they’re looking at. They will pick one to take along their journey while the rest go with a kindly stranger and his monstrous companion. Without the log left by some unnamed researcher Rudy wouldn’t …

    ds 106: Weird Book Room (4 stars)


    Far in the future of our world is one completely unrecognizable. The people there are not like us, and all they know of us is that we were responsible for why the world has become the way it is now. They read what’s left of our stories of war, of …

    ds 106: Play DJ & Make A Song (again!)(4.5 stars)


    Back at it again with another song! This time I focused much more on making an ambient track rather than a fully fledged song, and I’m pretty happy with the end result. I wanted something that you’d hear as the backing music to a graveyard or haunted woods at night, …

    Changes to Our Pricing Plans


    Our philosophy has always been one of experimenting, learning, and adjusting. As we began to roll out our new pricing plans a couple of months back, we took note of the feedback you shared. What we heard is that some of you missed the more granular flexibility of our previous …

    ds 106: Your story as a game! (5 stars)


    For the visual aspect of this project, I decided to make a mock ups for Hollowgrove. The first end goal of this idea was to make a game, and since then I’ve known that it’s gonna be a long time before anything of the sort actually happens, so in the …

    A MBS Recommendation


    Last week I had the privilege of writing a recommendation for Michael Branson Smith to gain admission to the masters program in Interactive Data Visualization at the CUNY Graduate Center. And while I’m confident he will get into the program with or without my recommendation, I used the occasion to …

    July 16, 2022. This is PorchFest in Vankleek Hill. Cycled 105 kilometers there and back today in 30 degree temperatures under a blazing sun and hot dry dusty wind. It was a good day overall, and it’s nice to have my first century of the year.

    July 15, 2022. Charlemagne (orange) and Julia (not orange) sleeping / sitting together on a chair. Friday, the last of the corrections for my paper are done, two interviews complete, an article for OEB (which accepted my proposal) is done, feeling good.

    ds106: Music video (4 stars)


    This assignment was partially inspired by a friend of mine who was showing me how to make a visualizer in a program called After effects. Since I had been having trouble with Adobe Animate on my other assignment, I took him up on his offer and thought it’d be fitting …

    Week 4 dev log


    This week was by far the most stressful thanks to the assignments and regular life happenings. My time management was way off this week and I’m not satisfied with my creative works this week nearly as much as some of my previous works. I spent more time struggling to get …

    Tall Milkweed


    January 12, 2022. We are becoming experts at growing milkweed. This plant is almost as tall as I am! That doesn’t mean we’re awash in butterflies, though. I think I saw one earlier this year, that’s it. It’s like they don’t exist any more. So terribly terribly disappointing.

    Back Yard


    July 11, 2022. This is my back yard. We’ve had a lot of rain this year and where in previous years our back yard has looked like a desert, this year it looks like a jungle. Don’t know what the neighbours think, but honestly, manicured lawns are over-rated.

    Comments week 4


    After browsing some blogs, I found some posts I found to be really well made and slapped some comments on them. First up was Anna’s blog Her daily creates are very engaging and fun to look through, I had a hard time picking out which week I wanted …

    ds 106: 5 second film (5 stars)


    I’ll preface this assignment by saying that this week was insanely unorganized for me as I started working a second job as well as some family stuff going on, so I’m frustrated to say that this assignment didn’t go as I wanted. I hate to use excuses but my end …

    Look, listen, analyze


    I picked out the Joker scene for this analysis, I remember seeing it a long time ago and thinking abut how I enjoyed it but couldn’t fully recall it. So what better way to rewatch it than to watch and learn from it!

    To start, I muted the clip and …

    Reading a movie reflection


    A lot of the points made by Ebert give so much insight to the thought process behind design choices. The idea of reading a movie is very interesting and its popularity speaks for itself. It’s a great way to both interpret meaning from small moments and to learn about how …

    Baie Noire


    July 10, 2022. We went for our hike around the Baie Noire segment of Parc national de Plaisance. Nice day, warm and clear, and we did 8 kilometers stopping frequently for photos. This will be my last hike with the old shoes; my feet have been sore and my toenails…

    Dunning Road


    July 9, 2022. This is a nice house along Dunning Road near Navan. I went on a nice long ride today up to Pendleton, along the Prescott-Russell trail toward the city, and then back down Dunning through Limoges. Beautiful day for a ride.
  21. Downes



    July 8, 2022. Just a local cow sheltering under a tree. Still way behind uploading photos. Still completely focused on this article. Also, the charger for my best camera stopped working, so I’m relying on my Fujifilm X-T200 now.

    By Jim Regan

    Several years ago, I began a journey to learn more about my Irish ancestors, and along the way I met three special women from Ballyhaught, Effin Parish, County Limerick. This meeting was not in person but rather through the warm letters and reflections of people who came …

    A brief history of our ancestors

    Our ancestors were exiled to the Sliabh Luachra area in the late 17th century after their farms were lost
    to the Adventurers Act and the Act for the Settlement of Ireland 1652. Earlier migrations of people to
    this region happened after the Desmond Rebellions …
