    Error Error Error. Is all I felt like I saw these past two weeks. They have been very frustrating, not because I didn’t enjoy the work, but because I had countless errors occur. I felt so helpless at points, I wanted to be working on homework, but something would go …

    Weekly Summary 13 & 14


    These weeks were the most stressful of the semester, by far. Not just because of the mashup assignments, but also because in the middle of week 13, my laptop charger broke. And my laptop was dead. My MacBook is an older one, it’s just the original make I believe, or …

    Creep on a movie scene [Remixed]: DS106-ersizing


    I started off on this assignment not knowing what to expect but eventually found it to be somewhat of a fun and interesting experience. I enjoyed taking a piece of content and making something completely random out of it. The Remix generator itself produces its fair share of great matches …

    I created this assignment called “10 Second Throwback.” For this assignment you have to create at least a 10 second long mashup of songs that are considered “throwbacks.” The music can be from any genre as long as it is nothing recent.

    I choose to use two songs each 5 …

    Guess this 10 second song


    Third assignment I chose was 10 second song mashup. I obviously chose it because of my love for music! This was tricky because I used 5 songs but only 2-3 second clips of each.I don’t want to tell you too much from the process because it might give away …

    Weekly Summary: 13 & 14


    I have to admit, I really enjoyed the remix section of DS106. It as a lot of work, but genuinely really fun.

    I talked about it a bit in my What is Remix? post, but I think that remixes and mashups are way more prevalent in our lives than we …

    My Tutorial


    I decided to do a tutorial for an assignment I created earlier in the semester called Safe Havens. (sorry there is no picture for it, I was positive I added one!) To me a safe haven is anywhere you feel comfortable and at peace, for me it is with …

    This post was worth two stars. It was goofy and fun and the perfect way to end nine points of assignments. The point of the assignment was to put the face of talking Tina on anything we wanted. I choose the Statue of Liberty because I thought it would look …

    The remix generator took the “Storytelling collage”  and the “Happy Days” assignments and mashed them up for me. So I did a Happy Days collage that includes pictures of the cast and the title.I got lucky because this remix is fairly easy, seeing as how individually the assignments were fairly …

    Sending Alan On A Vacation


    Required Assignment

    My mom is the coolest discussion partner ever.


    When I read that one of the requirements for these two weeks was to record myself explaining remix culture to someone, I wasn’t annoyed. I wasn’t frustrated. I didn’t struggle to think of someone with whom I could speak. In fact, my mind immediately flashed to my potential interview subject(s): …
