    Ich Bin ein Berliner


    So this assignment was called “Make em Laugh” basically we were supposed to tell a joke in another language, lay a soundtrack, and add a laugh track.

    My parents lived in Germany so I had them help me pronounce this joke which translates to: “What do you call a pissed …

    So, for this assignment we were supposed to read a poem and make it a story…. I found this short poem excerpt online dedicated to Rod Serling and his heart-throbiness and made a recording of it as part of my thoughts on his babe-ness. Difficulty: 1 1/2 stars, but I’m …

    Punctuate Like Victor Borge


    Well, this assignment was actually kind of difficult. Mostly because I had to listen to the same track over and over again trying to find where I should shove my punctuation. It was pretty trying. I decided to read my dusty old religion thesis for this assignment, but don’t worry …

    Audio Assignments- Music Tag – 3 stars


    One of my favorite type of assignments is audio! Lyrics and songs are great ways to tell stories. Have you notice similar themes extend genres… lyrics overlapping. Your task is to create a story by using audio snippets from songs. The trick is you have to have the last word …

    Amazon Impersonations


    So this assignment turned out to be really fun and basically it was to find a text conversation and do an audio recording.  People who post on amazon are HILARIOUS, I was heart broken when I found out that the “Three Wolf Moon” shirt comment sections was a hoax, …

    The Scary Door


    So even though I’m a pretty cool cat I have a secret nerdy side and I really like to watch cartoons.  Recently I’ve been watching Bob’s Burgers on Netflix, but obviously any cartoon fan knows about Cartoon Network’s Futurama, an animated science fiction series.

    Anyways, I found the audio …

    Edit of Song Mash-Up


    So, I previously endeavored a mash-up of Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” with Tina Fey’s parody of “Night Cheese” (Go watch 30 Rock, now). I originally wanted the entire song to be involved in the process but realized after that it was only a certain clip that I wanted to used. …

    Edit of Sound Story


    This week, due to the pressure of the radio show, I decided I would attempt to edit my previous assignments. First, I wanted to make my sound story more…rich, I guess? I didn’t necessarily want to make it longer, just tell a bigger story in the time I gave it. …

    May I Take Your Order?


    Okay, so first things first. I don’t do accents. Its a house rule. I do them poorly and they usually sound like some sort of mexican/jamaican hybrid, which is unfortunate to hear. So, I didn’t do an accent. I do, however, do a nice entitled guy. So, my recording is …

    Find an audio clip from a show or movie outside of the Twilight Zone. See example from the Everybody Loves Raymond episode, “Standard Deviation.”
