    Videogriping

    by

    Back in the day, friend of ds106 John Johnston made some awesome supercuts using Videogrep:

    I always wanted to try it, but I could never get it to work. I have a hard time finding appropriate directions for doing any kind of command-line work. They all seem to assume that …

    The oddest thing I found in a 7-11 store was a job. I worked the 11-7 shift in the summer when I was in college. What was odd, to me, was the way I got the job.

    A friend came back from a cigarette run and said the manager at …

    Week 3 dev log

    by

    The reflections were definitely the most brain power consuming for me. While they all had great information for audio design, it was hard to not repeat myself in some places. I think I could’ve spent some more time getting more words out and properly explaining myself rather than typing what …

    Moon Graffiti reflection

    by

    The low drone continuously playing in the background, the frantic beeping combined with the rushed conversation all build tension that is released in the sound of a crash. When the narrator begins to take over commentary, the drone and sound effects lower to give priority to said narrator. The silence …

    Radio hour reflection

    by

    The part that really stood out to me in regards to sound design from the Radio hour was the use of sound alongside the lack of sound. Background noise and music can heavily skew the mood of a story. It can provide a background, it can set tones, and depending …

    I had my friend randomly pick out five numbers from one to eleven to pick out people’s blogs, and I gotta say my classmates have some great content put out! Gonna need to step up my game

    My first blog comment was on Tristan Barber’s blog, http://wolfgamedev.com/. I really …

    ds 106: Story time fun time (3.5 stars)

    by

    There are a lot of options in regards to telling a story. I could talk about anything, tell any sort of tale for this. What really inspired me was the idea of continuing off of a gif assignment I had completed last week. The story revolves around a monstrous dog …

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

    by

    I saw this assignment and immediately knew that I wanted to do it. I was inspired by a prompt from a discord server to “Introduce the listener to a space adventure”. I used an online sequencer called Modbox to make this song, which gives me all sorts of fun chiptune …

    ds106: Eat Your Hear Out Beethoven (5 stars)

    by

    I thought it’d be fun to make a cover of a song with a style that’s drastically different from the original. For starters, I’m not that big on Let Her Go, but my partner sure is and I thought it’d be a nice surprise for him and this class. I …

    Ira glass reflection

    by

    In part 1 of the storytelling series, the first nugget of information that really stood out to me was the idea of having momentum when storytelling to capture audiences. It’s not the message itself that captivates the audience, it’s the story and the way it’s paced so that people become …

    Fibre

    by

    July 6, 2022. It took three trucks and half a day, but we were the first in our neighbourhood to get hooked up to fibre internet. Bell hadn’t even been advertising it yet; I just checked for availability and there it was! It’s connected now and I am living the…

    Day lilies

    by

    July 5, 2022. These are day lilies in our back yard (I’m still wondering why people move out to the country and then try to make their yard resemble a city as much as possible). I spent a full day writing today. https://flic.kr/p/2nwD2DL

    The Voyage Home

    by

    July 4, 2022. We had some time this morning so we took a wander around the city, then got on the train for home. This is a view of Lake Ontario out the window. I got a fair amount of work done on the train – the wireless was OK…

    Farfalle

    by

    July 3, 2022. After a very disappointing burger at the hotel the night before, this pasta was a welcome surprise. We had one more game of baseball weekend, another loss – but nobody is blaming the Jays for anything this weekend, as we all learned (once again) that there are…

    Vlad and Dad

    by

    July 2, 2022. We got our bobbleheads. There were two games on Saturday and the giveaway was the first day. There were some nervous moments in a long line, as they were only giving them out to the first 15,000 through the gates. We were in the 200 level for…

    Canada Day

    by

    July 1, 2022. This was the scene at the ball park on Canada Day. We took the train first thing in the morning, arriving in Toronto early enough to catch the game (it’s four hours from Fallowfield; you can’t do that to downtown Toronto in a car). We were way…

    RedBlacks

    by

    June 30, 2022. The view from our seats at the RedBlacks game. It ended in another loss, with the team a bit ragged, but it was still entertaining. After the game we did not go home, instead staying at a hotel near the train station in preparation for a busy…

    Dev week 3

    by

    I started off this week’s assignments well by getting a head start on my ds 106 tasks, and I’ happy to say that the process was so much smoother and enjoyable than last week. Now that I took my time and focused more on the quality rather than the deadline …

    The Vignelli Canon (reflection)

    by

    Vignelli lived an incredible life and had an exceptional skill in making clean, flowing designs. I find the way he designed the map of the New York City Subway map fascinating, as he didn’t simply design it to be accurate, rather representations so that people could understand it much easier. …

    Design Blitz

    by

    The idea behind the “Balance” photo was to showcase how precise and purposeful the layout on this little disk was. Naturally there’s a focal point on the disk, but at the same time the eye can wander over the full design and not feel over or underwhelmed. The two trees …

    ds 106: reacts

    by

    This morning I went to check up on my sweet baby hognose snake and give him something to eat. I love him dearly and he’s grown accustomed to me interacting with him. Of course, I apparently needed to ruin this beautiful bond as when I went to adjust some of …

    ds 106: One Story / Four Icons (2 stars)

    by

    I picked one of my favorite web shows for this project, Red vs Blue by Roosterteeth. Though I’m not fully caught up on the story as of today, these icons represent points in the show. The helmet represents the characters in the beginning, as everyone in the beginning of this …

    ds 106: Are We There Yet? (3 stars)

    by

    A turtle is lifted gently into sky, passing through clouds and watching the world shrink below him. He wants to look down so badly, yet he can’t bring himself to approach the edge. The sky has never seemed bright until now.

    I picked this old picture of me holding a …

    ds 106: Splain That Dystopia In Six Slides

    by

    The Crimson City once flourished as a grand, densely populated city that boasted military prowess and entertainment. The city was in conflict with the neighboring city of Leons, and in the hopes of gaining an edge in their stalemate work began on a secret bioweapon. A monster of huge proportions …
