    Drinks: Refresher

    Cucumber, Coconut, Lime and Mint Cooler

    This has to be one of the most delicious (and simplest) refreshers to make. Throughout this epidemic, it has become evident that our Summer will most likely not be spent outside, so long as the shutdown is put in place to save the lives …

    Recipe: Sweet Tooth

    Cookie Dough Truffles

    I used this recipe, as this is a quick and easy treat to make during this quarantine. My mom always talks about her sweet tooth as a teen in the 80s, and how she could eat so much sweets and to take advantage of our sweet tooth …

    Hello everyone, The final weeks are upon us. This week we are tasked with grouping together to create our final media project.

    What would people have done in the 80s during quarantine?

    For my final project, I decided to incorporate activities that are 80s style themed to do during this quarantine. I first began with thinking, how would someone of the 80s done during quarantine? So I based my project off this …

    Idea: “I am Legend” approach but 80’s style

    Hey everyone, so one of my favorite post-pandemic/apocalyptic movies ever is “I Am Legend” with Will Smith. For my final project, I decided to take this movie and put a couple of twists on it. 

    First, I’m going to try my best …

    Final Project Ideas


    This week we came up with three ideas for our final project.

    I suggested making a sort of Top Hits radio or video show. The songs would be current popular songs that are remixed to sound as if they were created in the 80s. The video below is an example…

    This Week


    80’s Pandemic

    For my final project, I’ve decided to concentrate on the 80’s pandemic specifically the measles, HIV, and pneumonic outbreak. I’ve done a little reading on CDC’s timeline of the three outbreaks and I think I have enough materials to complete my final project.

    I messed around with a few ideas as to what I could actually do for my final project.

    Remix 2: Warning Label Savanna


    The warning label was from my previous assignment, making fun of those medical commercials with the strange side effects using Valve’s Portal Gun from the Portal series of videogames. We were to remix it with Savanna, but it was not descriptive in what we were to do, so I put …

    Color Changer Remix: Infomercial


    The original assignment was to change the colors, but the remix was to add a bad infomercial feeling to it. I figured the best way to do so was to make this feel like an unusual advertisement, and since the colors changed, I made it a color changer, along with …

    Assignment Bank: Superhuman In Everyday Life


    If I were given any super power, mine would be to completely warp and bend reality to my will. Coronavirus could be instantly eliminated with a single thought, or the world hunger could be wiped out with a snap of the fingers. After solving these problems, I’d likely retreat into …
