    The music and the damage done


    Since it’s remix/mashup week, I thought I’d take another shot at putting words to music. I guess I got the idea from the OER20 conference. I listened to some of it with ds106radio playing in the background, and once I got the balance between the talk and the background right, …

    “Newest latest”


    I thought I’d do my own video analysis, using a scene from Spike Lee’s 80s classic, Do the Right Thing.

    I guess I’m looking at it more as an artist than a film scholar, but that’s my background. An interesting thing about it is that actor Bill Nunn’s speech …

    Your fly is down


    I thought I’d look at the 1986 version of The Fly and try a story shape analysis. Something that occurred to me when watching Vonnegut talk about the shapes of stories is that he’s talking about one character’s story. Cinderella’s story takes a different shape from that of the prince …

    80s recommendations


    Below are the class’ recommendations for examples of good storytelling related to the 80s theme. They’re predominantly video, which is not surprising since that’s probably the dominant form of storytelling for the times, then and now. I’ve included the titles, hyperlinks if provided, and the descriptions:

    While it was …

    the final project.


    After numerous technical errors I finally was able to render this videos and get it out. I’ve always wondered what influence the 80’s held in today’s world. Then after I had that thought I never had it again because the 80’s hold no significance over anything in my life. This …

    Final Summary


    For my final project, I present Golden Obsidian, a heavily Dungeons & Dragons inspired fantasy story. D&D was first truly popularized during the 80s, so that’s where my main influence is from. I don’t have much experience writing fantasy stories, but I do have experience reading them. I have also …

    Golden Obsidian Part 3


    Act 3


    The sky seemed bluer the closer Cecilia and Ephraim traveled to Lake Ferina. They could see the grandeur of the ancient tree from miles away. There was a paved path towards the mystic lake where friendly fairies and benevolent magical creatures milled about. Cecilia couldn’t keep her …

    Final project/ Week 15

    I can proudly say that I am done with this semester!

    While I did struggle with a lot of assignments, and this project, I would say I learned a lot. Maybe not in the typical sense, but I definitely have better problem-solving skills.

    Enough of that, though. Let’s get on …
