This week was soooo hard to get back into the swing of things. Before spring break I had a good rhythm going about getting stuff done on time and then once spring break hit I lost that rhythm. It amazes me how fast I lost the rhythm because it was definitely hard to pick back up on the assignments coming back from the break. Here is what I worked on this week:
Radio Show Listen-In:
I tuned into ds106 radio on Thursday and listened to Noir Not the Father and NOIRTalk. Noir Not the Father was crazy right from the start and super funny. I felt like I was listening to a Jerry Springer show. A highlight from the show was the references to “bathroom quickies.”
NOIRTalk was completely different from Noir Not the Father and there was a lot of dialogue going on. I wasn’t too sure what was going on for most of it just because the characters were constantly going back and forth and since we could only listen and not see it made some of the stuff hard to pick up on. But I enjoyed listening to both of the shows and I kind of wish I had the time to listen to all of them in the days before.
This was a fun assignment and a rather easy one because I already knew which works I was going to talk about. It was cool to give people shout outs in the class because they definitely deserved it with the work they put in for these assignments.
First, I gave Brian Goulet a shout out for his photoshop skills. http://landonepp.com/uncategorized/photoshop-wizard-brian-goulet/
Next, I talked about Tiffany’s future rapping career. http://landonepp.com/uncategorized/its-true-she-can-rap/
I also looked at Christine Loehr’s Noir Photo Safari. http://landonepp.com/uncategorized/big-fan-of-this-safari/
Last, I raved about Spencer’s spaceship daily create. http://landonepp.com/uncategorized/inspired-spaceship/
Collaborative Character Media Assignments:
For all of my assignments I worked with Jack Eaton. It was easy to work with Jack because we were in a group together for the radio show assignment and our two characters didn’t get along too well in the radio show so it was a no brainer for us to collaborate for these assignments.
First, we did the Valentines day card of Lena Meyers. I don’t want to go into too much detail about this because I don’t want to ruin the show for you guys! But my character Johnny Corner Pocket McCormick has a crush on Christine Loehr’s character Lena Meyers. It just so happens that so does El Jota…. http://landonepp.com/assignments/lena-meyers/ – 3 stars.
Next, I wrote an extended character dossier about my character Johnny and how he hates Jack’s character El Jota. http://landonepp.com/assignments/the-skinny-on-johnny-corner-pocket/ – 5 stars.
Last, Jack and I made a business card for Lenny’s Hitman Service which will make more sense when you hear our radio! http://landonepp.com/assignments/johnny-aint-messin-around/
Character Social Media:
This week I created a gmail account for Corner Pocket and a twitter as well. Feel free to email him or follow him on twitter! #teamfollowback
Here are my 10 comments. Its getting easier and easier to comment now, which is good.
And here is the link for my daily creates! For some reason I just didn’t like them as much this week. Usually the daily creates are one my favorite things to do but I just wasn’t feeling it. Maybe it’s because I was out of my groove from spring break. http://landonepp.com/daily-create/daily-creates/
