Looking back on the radio show I still love it. It was so much fun but that does not mean it didn’t come with its fair share of difficulties. The first difficulty was finding a time we could all meet that didn’t conflict with sports or school or work. After finishing the project we loved it. It was so great to hear it live on the radio but we were afraid that people wouldn’t understand it. See everyone’s tweets than how they felt in there blog posts made everything worth while. People seemed to really enjoy the show and all the hard work that we put in to have it finished. Something that probably helped a lot was that my roommate was in my group. It was easy to find times her and I could work on it. It ended up we did the editing in 2 different states and it didn’t make it any harder or easier. The part I enjoyed the most about this project has to be the recording part. It was so much fun to be able to goof around with my group. I didn’t realize how many takes we would have to do because people kept saying the wrong words or they laughed. But that was the best part because you got to see peoples personalities better.
Some advise that I would give to future ds106 students is don’t be afraid to ask people to join your group over twitter and do not stress over this assignment. It is a lot of fun and does not take up as much time but that does not mean it’s good to wait till Sunday night to do it. That will result in a show that probably will be way to short. Just enjoy this project. It is fun.
This week I did a tweet along with the two shows on Thursday the 19th. Both of the shows confused me greatly but they were rather interesting. The dinner show one had great sound effects. I loved the way the group would scream and it sounded like they were all really scared. I really wish we were able to find out who murdered who because now i’m really curious. The way they introduced the characters, I think should have been more clear. I would have liked to know who everyone was.
For the second show I was just confused. I loved all the different voices and how dramatic it was but I had no idea what was going on. Even after they tried to explain I was still horribly confused.
My tweets are on the sidebar of my blog. I did like the shows and I still enjoy the tweet along.
This week there is a ton of posts that were asked to do. Again we were asked to do daily creates. 3 of them to be exact. I liked the video one the best of mine but they were all rather interesting.
The next thing that was completed was the tweet along of a radio show. I really liked the show that I listened in on. It was a little confusing but did not loose my interest at all.
Another thing we had to do this week was 4 inspire assignments. The first one I did was a picture of a cat in space. Then I did one for someones eye daily create. Next was an assignment where they were asked to combine 2 logos to make one. The last inspire that I did was another daily create called my different sides. That last one was my favorite out of all of them.
Next we were asked to do 10 stars worth of assignments. These assignments all need to be about our characters and another character in the class. It was extra credit if you did the assignments with another person also. Chelsea and I did all of the assignments about both of our characters, Caleb and shadow, and we worked together on all of them. The first assignment was called DS106 Horror worth 1 star. The next assignment we did was Professor Groom Poster worth 4.5 stars. Then we did the assignment Cheesy Radio Ad For Your school worth 3.5 stars. The last assignment we did was Make My Day worth 3 stars. These were all so much more fun to complete because we did them as if they were a story and we did them together.
The last thing to do this week is to comment 10 times again:
We Will, We Will ROCK YOU!!!

The Future Life of Billy Steel
I found this picture on someones flicker and loved it. I looked at the daily creates and found the picture that I liked under My different sides. It is called Self portrait by Maxwell Johnson. I love this picture. It is so different than anything I’ve seen by anyone else in the class. I love how he made three different images of himself into one picture. I feel like it belongs in a 90s movie like the breakfast club or 16 candles.
Another picture that I chose to add to the inspire page is called Intergalactic Gasoline by Kim. I really liked how it looks so different than everyone else. She did not combine two common logos but rather two completely different ones. I also love how well the logos go together and how they look like it is real. It was done very well.
The last assignment that we did was called Make My Day worth 3 stars. Chelsea and I did this one together as an alternative ending to our radio show. This would be as if Shadow and Caleb did not die and they did one more heist together so they could run away and live happily. Here is an illustrated list of the best day for them.
Another image that I loved and decided to post up in the inspire page was another daily create. The image was called My Hazel Eye by Janelle Pierangelino. This eye picture looks so interesting. There is shadows around her face that just looks so mysterious. The eye itself looks like it is changing and hiding something. The color of the eye is so vibrant compared to the rest of the picture and makes it look that much more interesting. I really do love this picture.
The first inspire that I did was called theramincats by Cathy Finn-Derecki. This was one of the daily creates. What was asked was to make a poster of cats in space. I liked this one the most out of all of them and I had to go back and find it to put it in this. What really stuck out was the vibrant colors. The green is so bright and sticks out so much. I also love how well the cat head fits on the body. It does not look like it is a completely different image but as if the head was there all along. Another thing that I liked about this image is how the words are all not the same font. It makes them stand out that much more. I hope yall like the picture as much as I do.
The next assignment that I did was called Cheesy Radio Ad For Your school worth 3.5 stars. This assignment I also did with Chelsea where we used our characters to do the ad. I like how it turned out. It was not difficult to come up with what to say but the editing took longer than it should have. Our ad is to get people to attend Mary Washington.
Another assignment I did was called Professor Groom Poster worth 4.5 stars. This was a rather difficult assignment because we were supposed to swap faces and I also added faces of Chelsea and my characters. I like how it turned out in the end. It is the little mermaid. Caleb is a police officer and his face is on Sebastian, Jim’s face is on Ariel, and Shadows face is on Prince Eric.
