Design A Cat Garden

For this weeks assignment I chose to do DesignAssignments1836 Recover a Classic. For this assignment you had to take a classic novel and create a new cover. The theme on the page seemed to be to simplify the cover. The Dracula cover is an example from the website. I chose to do The Secret Garden. My mom…

Week 3 Reflection/Rant

I am trying to write this reflection after just watching the season finale of Game of Thrones so just a warning. This week was the first week where I felt confident going in. I had already picked my Video Assignment and knew what I wanted to do. I chose to do the Classical-Modern Mashup. Where…

D.C Attention Harry Potter Fans

For this Daily Create I copied the picture and pasted it into Word. I then examined the photo and decided it looked like a steam engine. Then I thought who would want a steam engine…Harry Potter fans. I created the caption in Word then took a screenshot of it. The screenshot allowed me to turn…

DIY Blog

This week’s readings Lankshear and Knobel (2008) Ch1: DIY Media: A Contextual Background and Some Contemporary Themes, once again changed my view. Last week when I heard the word remix I thought of music now I think of so much more. This week before I did the readings I thought of DIY as little art projects…

D.C. Paul’s Thoughts

For this Daily Create I was inspired by Paul McCartney. I tried to find the clip but could not. He was on Graham Norton a british talk show. He talked about writing songs. This Daily Create was his process. To make this Daily Create I picked a lyric and wrote it at the bottom. I…

I then chose Audio Assignments 1446 Favorite Song as the assignment I was going to attempt. Attempt being the keyword. I pick a song and and followed these instructions. They gave the reader a step…

Reading Summary Week 2 REMIXED!

I loved the beginning of this chapter! “‘remixing’ involves taking cultural artifacts and combining and manipulating them into new kinds of creative blends and products”  The first sentence had me thinking right away. I always thought of music when I heard remixing. This definition opened my mind to what remixing really is. So much of our…
