    Mashup Assignments


    The first mashup assignment I chose was the Buffalax one.  The most obvious foreign programming to me is Telemundo so I chose a court case TV show called Caso Cerrado and subtitled it as a spelling bee.  The way I think this worked as a mashup was that it took …

    Wands and Spells


    After a failed attempt to find a suitable maiden from the tributes under the bakery, the Fandom Princess and Harold continued to the last place the Princess felt certain she would be able to find someone who would be able to help them.

    They arrived back at Mercury but did …

    Feast for Tributes


    The next stop on The Fandom Princess’ journey to find Harold a maiden was to stop by the Hunger Games fandom hide-out. Ironically, they were located beneath the village’s largest bakery.

    The Princess walked in the bakery, thriving with people looking to buy goods and the smell of fresh bread …

    ds106 Show: Off The Air


    Yesterday was week 14 for ds106, the last week of classes for my UMW students, and also the last of my semi regular live Google Hangouts pitched as a weekly “show”. Thanks to Brian Lamb, Todd Conaway, and stalwart student Nancy B for showing up.

    The whole series is right …

    Young Padawans


    The day was still young as the Fandom Princess rapped her knuckles against the wooden door in a specific pattern; three knocks, pause, four, then two.

    “What is this place?” Harold, the frog prince, asked from the Princess’s warm palm.

    “Home of the Padawans, my darling Harold. We may find …

    So for the tutorials I chose, I was just gonna do the assignments I recently created (fresh in my mind, and might as well show how I did my own).  So for the first one “Imitative Polyphony,” all I did was go to GarageBand as we’ve seen many …

    What is Remix?


    The first reference I checked out was Everything is a Remix Part I by Kirby Ferguson, which showed how remix evolved mainly through music.  He begins by stating the definition of remix as a way “to combine or edit existing materials to produce something new.”  This is essentially how I …

    These past two weeks, we have worked with remix and mashup. I have learned a lot about what remix is. I have found that explaining something to someone else is the best way to comprehend and show comprehension. I explained remix to my best friend, Allison. Read my post about

    New Assignment Ideas


    Make an Imitative Polyphony

    An imitative polyphony can best be described as when you were younger in music class and the teacher would have one side of the class start singing “row row row your boat” and then part way through the song have the other half of the class …

    New TDC Challenges


    Tell a story using only numbers at the top of your keyboard and the line below it (q,w,e,r,t,y,u,i,o,p).

    So, throughout the course of the semester I chose to do a lot of the writing TDC because to me it’s the easiest way to tell a story (probably because it’s the …

    Ordinary Girl


    For my other mashup assignment, I chose to do Actor Transformation {****}. You always see actors/actresses on television and movies that you say “wow, they have really grown up”. When I was reading this assignment’s details, one actress came to my mind. Miley Cyrus.

    I wanted my transformation video …

    What’s Missing?


    One of the required assignments of remix week was to remix an existing DS106 assignment. To do this, you had to use the Remix Generator. The Generator picks and assignment and a “Remix Card,” but the assignment isn’t fully remixed until you press the BIG Remix it button. The …

    That’s My Work


    For this class, we had to create two tutorials and two assignments.

    Based on the advice from previous DS students, I created my tutorials throughout the semester. The previous DS students advised us to do the tutorials when you do the assignment. That way, you’re not having to redo an …

    For one of my mashup assignments, I wanted to do the What Color is Your World {**}. I always feel like the color yellow is a color that is forever in my life. Also, yellow is proven to make people happier. I don’t know how it’s proven or where the …

    Reuse and Recycle


    A couple weeks ago we were required to submit a few pieces of media that we had no used for a specific ds106 assignment. However, since this week is Remix week we were told to take these old media pieces and create a story out of them.

    Final Project Stuff


    Alright, so if I’m reading this correctly, the character I’m gonna choose is Tony Soprano from the TV show The Sopranos.  The story that I wish to tell is going to revolve around him going to jail for a long amount of time, lets say 10 or so years, and …
