    I Don’t Think You Can Guess


    For this assignment, Favorite Song, the action was to take your favorite song, and remove the lyrics. Since the assignment said to use one of your favorite song I decided to use my actual #1 favorite song. You were also suppose to play only around 30 seconds of it …

    Lower Pitch


    This assignment ended up being pretty easy for me. I was just roaming around audacity and stumbled upon the effects for this assignment. All I had to do was change the vocal pitch to be lower than the original song. Naturally I chose He Man and the most annoying song …

    Making an Instrumental


    This assignment was very complicated for me. I’m not very experienced with audacity so I struggled trying to remove the lyrics from this song. The song I decided to take the words out of is called Tumblr Girls by G Eazy. The main reason I like this song is from …

    B-Flat Assignment

    Link to assignment: http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/b-flat/

    Following this week’s theme of audio, I decided to do something with music. This assignment requires me to take the vocal line of a song, and make it flat. I chose to do one of my favorite songs, Man in the Box by Alice …

    Audio plays a huge roll in our daily life. We may no notice it, but trust me, it does. Think of watching a movie without the background music. Think of watching any Star Wars movie ever and not having any sound effects. Without the sound effects and music the whole …

    Clint Eastwood Has A Reason


    In this assignment, Dramatic Reading Remix, we were assigned to take a song and dramatically read the lyrics. Then put them with different music to make it sound different. At first, I misread the instructions and dramatically read a songs lyrics to the song’s own music. I did Eye …

    What The Amish Can Teach You About DS106


    The Daily Create for today was pretty interesting. Given a prompt from an idea generator website, we were supposed to write a blog post. A couple of people shared titles that had to do with the Amish and DS106. These two things, a religious group that eschews technology and a …

    Sound Effects


    I listened to Moon Graffiti as an example of audio storytelling. It is a radio drama about what would have happened if Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had crashed on the moon and remained there forever. There is far more going on that simple verbal dialogue. The voices are distorted …

    Switch it up


    For this visual assignment you had to use Photoshop to change the hue, saturation, lighting, and contrast to edit/change a photo’s feel. I used a photo I had taken over the summer of a dock in Rocky Mountain National Park.



    I played around with the photo in Photoshop …

    For this assignment you had to take an image of anything you want, whether it be a cartoon character or an image from a movie and change the colors around in Photoshop.

    I found a picture of the powerpuff girls and change their original pink, blue, and green colors to …

    Photography – The Scott Kelby Way


    Scott Kelby is a photographer who created the book “The Digital Photography Book, Part 5: Photo Recipes.” In his book, he explained multiple techniques to create better photography images. Being a nature lover, I went out and took some images of the natural world using some of his photography recipes.…

    Weekly Summary 04


    Even though this week I had negative time to work on things. Like this week every moment that I had free time, I would be doing homework and I was still pretty crunched on time. It seems I say this every week, but that’s the college life I guess. If …

    Week 4 summary


    Lets see, I did 3 daily creates this week (all on my twitter, https://twitter.com/BigWillyM9001), did a lot of reading of various things, a couple of visual assignments(below), and I went out to Indian rock and took some photos that I think turned out pretty good(also below). Overall I think this …

    Photos around Indian Rock


    I went out with a buddy of mine, and we snapped a bunch of pictures of just random things around Indian Rock(I can neither confirm nor deny that he took most of the pictures, having a better eye for that than me).

    Here are a few that I liked the …

    Week 4


    This week was another productive one. It was based on visual assignment and photography. I was able to check out a new camera and learn quite a bit about picture taking in just a few days. One thing I knew going into the week was that focusing in photography is …

    Photoshop Phenomenon


    Everyone who lives their daily life around media (Facebook, television, magazine spreads, etc.) has witnessed the “Photoshop Phenomenon:” however, are they aware of what it is? What ways it can effect our living and societies view of beauty?

    What is the Photoshop Phenomenon?

    Photoshop Phenomenon is referring to when media …

    Limited Shapes


    This was my final assignment for the week. It was worth three and a half stars, which got me to a total of eight stars. The instructions were very simple, use five circles, four lines, and only one curved line to create an image. This assignment really worked with my …

    Gee, That’s One Edgy Looking Flower!


    Scott Kelby’s book The Digital Photography Book, Part 5: Photo Recipes has a section on shooting a single flower. I used tips from it to shoot this image:

    Okay, I’ll admit this isn’t a flower, but it is the nicest looking plant I could get get my hands on. That, …

    Movie Barcode of Inside Out


    Boy, this one was a pain, no wonder it was 5 stars. Took me forever to figure out how to extract the frames from the movie, but you can check out the end result on my twitter: https://twitter.com/BigWillyM9001…

    Jim Richardson


    I wasn’t in the visual literacy class, so I have no idea about elements of design or anything, but his photos of places and landscaps are very desolate and often shadowed/dark, while his photos of people are just of them happy and going about their daily lives.
