    Taylor on Tour


    For my sixth assignment for my final I choose GIF Animate Your Day Like Ben.  This assignment is to capture key moments each as an animated GIF – as you go through a day look around and identify places, moments, things that are well represented in the infinite looping …

    Oh, Chicago


    For my next assignment I did grettings from ds106.  This assignment is to tell us where you are, where you’re from, or simply where you’d rather be and build a greeting card.

    To make this greeting card I started off by finding my pictures.  I’m not going to tell …

    Safety in Pairs


    The Fandom Princess and the Prince continued their trek into town, all the while the Princess tightly held onto the gem with the tiny rose hidden inside.

    As they reached the edge of town, both of their eyes scoured the area for a traveler or someone who seemed to be …

    The Rose Within the Gem


    While the Fandom Princess and the Prince were out for a light summer stroll during the Princess’ third year at Mercury, she accidently tripped on the trail to town. The Prince gasped and instantly kneeled next to her.

    “My darling,” he said, concern lacing his voice. “Are you alright? Are …

    Are you there world? It’s me, Taylor.


    Hey Ya’ll,

    Let me start off by saying I am totally not supposed to be writing this.  To say things got out of hand quickly would be an understatement.  I’m supposed to be laying low and staying out of the spotlight in every way possible but days like this make …

    Time to Mix it UP! (Weeks 13 & 14 Remix and Mashup)


    Can’t….feel my fingers anymore…been remixing and mashing SO much these past 2 weeks! On top of studying for final exams and doing final projects for other classes, I think these have been the busiest 2 weeks of the entire semester. But I got through them with all of the assignments …

    Fans React!


    For my fourth assignment for my final project I did storytelling within the web.  This assignment is to take a website and edit it completely so that it tells a totally different story than it once did.

    I’m going to warn you now IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED …

    Adventures with Ghost: Skating on Ice


    One chilly winter day, the Fandom Princess decided to take her sweet Ghost out to the lake to chase winter bunnies. She put on a pair of special earmuffs given to her by the elves, and placed a scarf around Ghost’s neck, a gift also from the elves.

    Snow fell …

    Welcome to Nashville!


    How on earth can it already be time for final projects? I’m having a hard time believing that the semester is almost over!!

    About a week ago we came up with ideas for our final projects.  You can find my original idea here.  Just to give you a heads …

    Vampires from Outer Space


    Remixes are a great way to demonstrate creativity and play around with things that already exist. Here are three examples:

    The author of this remix used half-second clips from the Star Wars films against a background of the instrumental of “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson.  The …

    That’s a Wrap….to the regular season


    YAY almost done with the semester (but I will certainly miss ds106). This is one of the last weekly summaries that I have to write up, so it’s a bit sad, but exciting at the same time.

    These past two weeks were really jammed with so many different things to …

    Weekly Summary


    I was extremely crunched for time this week, as I have 18 credits worth of final projects and exams to complete. Unfortunately, for the first time this semester I was not able to complete all the work. The Popcorn assignment caused much frustration, and after going back and forth between …

    Always Sometimes Never


    Those three words pretty much haunt every geometry student at some point in their life. A square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle is sometimes a square? How can that be? It’s all about the properties. Quadrilaterals share a lot of different properties, but there also are a lot …

    For the Remix


    For the Remix assignment I wanted to go with the more novelist approach where for m the picture you should gather that he is a writer. I wanted to keep half of his face normal so the viewer could know what he looked like and then on the other half …

    What Is a Remix?


    I really hate reflection posts. I have no idea why, maybe it’s because we aren’t creating anything fun for me to show off my princess skills for. I guess I just am too proud of my work all of the time. However I did really enjoy the different clips that …

    Daily Creates


    I’m not sure exactly how to retrieve the Daily Creates that I submitted, but I did submit two of them earlier this week. The first assignment was to, “carve/draw something interesting on an apple”. This idea came from me simply looking around the room and finding an apple. The second …

    Overall Community Participation


    I think I was moderately active in the ds106 community this semester. While I am not too involved in the “twittersphere”, I do make every attempt to stay active within my blog, responding to comments that merit a response, etc. Also, during the group project I was extremely involved, taking …

    I Worked At a Movie Theater for 2 Years


    Yes it is true, I have spent two full summers working in the movie theater and I never have had a problem with popcorn. In fact, I love it. Sure I spent one day sitting in the movie theater until 3 in the morning popping popcorn, but it didn’t matter …

    Learning Proper Remixing


    Also I wanted to share that copyright for companies last for 100 years. I also learned in the everything is a remix part 1 and 3 that everything that we hear in today’s music is probably already taken from someone before. I also learned that people’s ideas are not there …

    Understanding Remix


    Well I’ve posted all the Remix assignments for the week, but I failed to actually describe what remix is.

    This week we were asked to review some videos on remix and see some examples of it before starting our own work to get a better understanding of what remix means. …

    Nearing the End…


    The past two weeks included so much to do on remixing and mashing.  First of all, what is a remix?   I watched some videos and examples of remixes to get a better understanding. Then, in my blog post,  I explained to my roommates what a remix was after showing …
