WEEK SIX

Well another week is in the books. I’m going to be completely honest and say that this week was one of my more favorite weeks just because we didn’t have to do any reading. I know that sounds pretty lame but it’s true. I love getting to design things in photoshop and I have a new found love for Audacity. Speaking of Audacity, I thought all of my audio assignment were going to take a long time but since getting the hang of the program it wasn’t too bad! I actually enjoyed it! It felt a little weird not doing any daily creates this week but I didn’t mind not having to them too much. I’m excited to get to do them next week. As for my group, I really enjoy working with all of them. We have a good group and I think our radio show will turn out great. I also got to meet the legendary Jim Groom while I was working with my group in the convergence center. He looks just like his pictures.  But I’m definitely starting to enjoy this class more now that I know how to manage my time wisely with all of the assignments. But here is the low down on everything I did this week:

Radio Show Progress: we established a group, got each others numbers, met up and laid out everything that will be going on in our radio show. The post for that can be found here.

Radio Show Design Project: I wasn’t sure if everyone in the group had to create their own individual poster or bumper, or if we could all use the same one so I just ended up creating my own to be on the safe side. I never mind going in photoshop and creating something anyways. The poster can be found here.

Radio Listen-along: I was in Thursday nights listen along and once again I loved it. We listened to The Adventures of Phillip Marleau and Jack the Ripper. They were both pretty good but I think I was more fascinated with Jack the Ripper. It was a pretty creepy story and there were a lot of great sound effects which added to the effect. Here are a couple of tweets I tweeted from the night.

Commenting: Here are the links to all of my comments:

Audio Assignments: I did three audio assignments for a total of ten stars. Six of those stars were focused on my character Johnny Corner Pocket McCormick.

First, I did a music mashup worth 3.5 stars- http://landonepp.com/assignments/party-up-jump-around/

My next two posts focused on my character.

I did an assignment where I played the role of Johnny and told a two minute story of his life- http://landonepp.com/assignments/johnnys-life-in-two-minutes/

Last, I made a theme song for Johnny- http://landonepp.com/assignments/corner-pockets-theme-song/

I’m excited for week seven!
