this week was really fun.
I got a lot of mileage out of the opacity setting on Paint.net this week, and I used our lord and savior Reggie.
My favorite show came back on television which was really great.
I opened up to some new friends this week.
This was a great week.
ALL HAIL THE THREE MONTH TURKEY.
near the end of the year, on halloween, something magical happens. all the turkeys of the world gather together in Turkey, and have a vote to see who will become the legendary 3-month turkey. once the representative is chosen he is sacrificed and buried. then when night falls, he rises from his grave and is full of vengence. because he is the three month turkey, he has special powers that come in phases. his hatred of the turkeys that killed him grows into a special power that allows him to turn turkeys into candy. but only for one night. so he goes around turning the other turkeys into candy. and spreads them across western civilizations households to be given to kids. His hatred subsides just enough after one night that he cant turn Turkeys into candy anymore, but he’s a turkey with a vengeance. he then goes on a killing spree, killing as many turkeys as he can. these turkeys are then rounded up, sold, and served on thanksgiving day. finally, the 3 month turkey feels sorry for what he’s done, and tries to appease the spirits of the turkeys that he has slain, so he spends the entire month of december gathering up presents. But these presents are then gathered up by santa and his elves, and there is nothing the 3 month turkey can do about it. he is then for the rest of December, tormented by the angry spirits of the slain turkeys. But, once new years comes around, the 3 month turkey’s time has run out, and the earth opens up beneath him, swallowing him into the depths of hell, where he is dragged down by the very turkeys he sought to appease. but he now realizes he deserves this, and willing goes into the depths of hell.
For this one, I decided I wanted to change the planets into something else, because, hey, that shouldn’t be there!
I turned Pluto into Nick Nocturne, the host of a Youtube show I like about creepy stories online. I chose Pluto because Pluto is the Roman god of the underworld. I also turned Jupiter into Greg Farshtey, the main writer for Bionicle. He wrote basically the entirety of the Bionicle universe, as well as wrote for it even after the toyline ended. I made him Jupiter for no real reason, but I’m glad I did, because it fits his face perfectly. Then I made Reggie the Sun, because why not.
so apparently I looked at the assignment more closely, and I had to mash up two movie things. oops. well, I already did this, so I’m gonna stick with it.
I didn’t do much this week. I still dont know how to edit videos. I do most of my editing in real time. I press pause on my videos to get cuts. I dont have any video editing software to put in titles and credits. it treally sucks. but i did a few things not much.
Surprisingly i didn’t do the origami one when i did the crane. I instead I used it for the arts and crafts tutorial. so for this one i made a fortune teller/cootie catcher, because Origami is just paper folding, isnt it?
also some of the work I worked on this week
I was recommended to xray goggles for mozilla, but i already knew how to edit sites by using f12. i just took funny pictures and stupid titles and voila. my teachers site is now a little more creepy
a cool-ish google draw game. I did this game three times, it always gave me carrot as the first one, but it never guessed it. weird.
I could’ve sworn i did more. huh. well, there weren’t that many in the assignment bank that I found interesting. or wouldn’t need to set up more social media accounts to access, or pay for. so yeah that’s this week doneroony.
that’s about as much as I did in terms of assigments.
I didn’t really get much done this week in terms of assignments
I have sort of been on a vacation high. I need to do better next week. that being said, I did work on the Radio show. I Didn’t write the that much for the show, just a little bit here and there, and I took the role as the police officer in the radio show. did enjoy talking to other people for once in my group in the google doc.
now the reason I didn’t do the audio assignments is I’m out of time and i let time get away from me, but also because a lot of the ones in there are “remixes” and remixes take take a lot of time to produce, and I’m not really musically inclined.
on what I did for the radio show…
I did absolutely nothing, and I am not proud of it. I let time to get away from me and once I wanted to do work, I was expecting a script, and I never met with anyone and i feel like I failed this week. I need to do better this week. I wanted to work on it, but I never got aroun to it, and did not have a chance to meet with anyone. in fact, I have not met anyone in this class. I’m sorry.
but on an unrelated note
I learned a little bit more about design this week. I learned about the techniquees and things that people use as a guideline in design from the “Vignelli Canon”.
I also enjoyed hunting for Examples of different design in my DesignBlitz. In that Designblitz, I also share a little personal story about my past, which is sort of a theme this week, actually. It started out simple with My “Potter Cipher” idea, which was an idea I had kicking around in my head for a while now. I thought “how can I make a simple letter replacement cipher a bit harder to crack?” and voila, the Potter Cipher was born. My other blog posts got even more personal. First there was the license plate, in which I got to show my love to and kind of support the illegal viewing of a show I love, Kamen Rider Drive. And there was what I think is my Favorite blog post about my favorite “Fakemon”, Acornary, and some backstory behind it. Give it a read. Oh, and there was the demotivational poster, which isn’t much.
Well, next week I’ll be working on a radio show, If anyone is interested in having me on board, I’d love to do it. I could do voice, maybe editing,I mean, I’m kind of liking Audacity. But anyway, the next two weeks are going to be great. If midterms don’t kill me, that is.
