Blast From the Past

Check out my video below “Blast From the Past” where we dig into perceptions of the 80’s as a generation and of 80’s pop culture. If you want to know more about it or my process for making it before watching, just follow the rabbit down the rabbit hole.

One Summary to Rule Them All – the End is Near

With this being the last weekly summary for the DS106 course, I decided to add some dramatic flair to the title. The only thing that I will cover in this week’s summary is my final project. For my final project, I decided to create a show called “Blast from the Past” in which I look…

Final Project: The-Making-Of

For my final project, I decided to make an 80’s theme show called “80’s Throwback”. The show will encompass audio, video, and design media as ways to communicate my story to those who will watch. It will be comprised of two major segments: Segment One – Flash from the PastThis will be a video section…

Weekly Summary 11

This week was a continuation from week 10 as a delve into video storytelling. So far, this has been the lease fitting storytelling format for me. While it was fun getting to do more group work with the same group I did the radio show with, it felt much less my “niche” this time around.…

The Long Con

While looking so far out is far from the usual for me, it is a nice activity to do from time to time. I still like my previous ideas about the possible topics, but after checking out some of the ideas put out by other students, I’m definitely open to some different ideas. One that…

Next Big Star – The Update

Time for an update for the AMAZING 80’s themed movie that I’m in. For weeks 10 and 11 of DS106 I’ve been working on a group assignment style movie. We spent last week planning it all out and determining that I would be Barry, the male counterpart to the main character, who is also trapped…

Weekly Summary 9

This week was primarily a week of reflection. All the assignments had something to do with looking back on or improving assignments we had done in previous weeks. I’m someone who often tries to self reflect, so I felt right at home this week going over my own works. I started off with the first…

REMIX! Same Same But Different

Its time to take a look back at two assignments and remix/upgrade/revise/improve them. My first choice came quick and easy, as the reigning tongue twister champ, I figured it was time to revisit this assignment and once again prove to the doubters that I am indeed the best there ever will be. To prove this…

Story Time: Daily Create Edition

One purpose, one goal, make a decent story that can use multiple of my unrelated Daily Creates to add to it in some way. Let’s see how it goes. There once was an old grumpy man name Mister Sprooge who hated all holidays, especially Christmas. This goes back over 50 years to his childhood when…

Brainstorm 2: Electic Boogaloo

After scanning a majority of the content made so far that’s 80’s related, I noticed a lack of content focused around TV during that time. Most things have some ties to music or movies from the 80’s, including my own, which is reasonable given how impactful they were. Whether it is just taking a look…
