This week we had to do 12 stars of mashup assignments, make a “how to” post, and do 2 remixes. This week was probably the hardest one for me. I think that my creativity is headed down the drain as we near the end of the semester with a 10 page paper and projects hanging over my head. Despite all of that, I think I did pretty good this week. I think that the most fun part was making Talky Tina. That was fun. I also had a hard time relating it to the class theme. I think that that was one of the more challenging parts. I think I only got one of the mashups to be related…shame on me. Anyways, check it all out!

Another week of Video Assignments. I did 9 stars worth of character videos and 4 stars of another video assignment. I love making videos with iMovie and this gave me a good chance to use it again. I will miss making videos for this class. I also did 3 daily creates this week which were also pretty entertaining. Another week for the books.

This week was another fun one. I decided that instead of working in a group, that I would work alone since my schedule is so crazy and I have weird times to do things. I did 10 stars worth of assignments and I also did my video essay on Nancy Drew. This week I used a lot of iMovie, Freesounds.org, and YouTube to complete my assignments. I did two daily creates which were amusing as always.

What another great week. It was so cool to hear all the radio shows that were made in the pas two weeks. I did a critique of Sexpionage and just wrote down some of my thought on what could make it better and what was done well. I also tried to to the web remix and did one on Amazon. It was pretty confusing but I figured it out and it was fun to use a tool I never have used before. Also, I tied all of my daily creates together and thought that was a fun twist on things. This week overall was fun and I am looking forward to next week as always!

Daily Create Story- Week 9
This week I learned a lot. I learned about a new tool that allows you to crate a poster. It is really cool because you don’t have to worry about copyright issues or anything. You pick a templet, add your own words, and can delete or add more images too it.
We also got a name for our radio show, “Agents on Air”, and that is really exciting in it self. I feel like we are really moving forward. You can read more about this in my radio show progress post.
Lastly, I opened up to the world. I got to tell a store within a two minute period and I talks about a lot of personal things. I may even look for a job in this field now that I know I love it so much! Exciting times!
Good week, looking forward to recording next week!! Should be fun and intersting to see where the show goes.

What a busy busy week!!
This week included 12 stars of assignments, a live Tweet session while listening to the DS106 radio! Which happened to be with my favorite podcast, “Limetown”, and was fun to tweet with classmates.
My radio bumper was featured and that was pretty awesome to hear some feedback on that!
I love working with audio a lot more than I thought I would. Backup job is a radio host now due to this week’s assignments!
There was a lot of work but it was all REALLY rewarding and I am glad that I worked so hard because it was a lot of fun.

Really, this week was a stressful one. Had a family emergency and am currently so sick I am practically bed ridden. But, all in all, I got all of the assignments done, hopefully. I missed a direction last week but this week I read a lot slower and more carefully to make sure that I was doing everything correctly.

Daily Creates: Week 4
All things are running more smoothly. I have on hiccup left. I am posting my assignment with the CORRECT tags and they are not showing up in each assignment, I have to manually hand add them. My blog has been now registered 2 times on the website and nothing is happening. I have been manually entering them form now.
Update: There is a lag between when you post something on your blog to when you see it under each assignment. (oops.)
My favorite assignment I did was the Agent ID. I thought that it was a great way to relate it to the class and now I feel more offical!
Overall this week was fun. Got to try out some new techniques with design. I did a lot of my work in Paint which, as a Mac owner, I do not normally use. It has changed a lot over the years and I think that it has a lot of great qualities now and it is really user friendly. Everything went really smoothly, again, thankfully, and I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for next week!
This week was luckily fairly easy. I was able to make sure that I had accounts to share all forms of media along with setting up my domain as a place for my blog and to display my work. I learned that sound cloud is a little more difficult then I remember and that I do have a twitter account (which made my life easier). Also, I was introduced to Flickr which is going to take some getting use to. Everything else was easy because I had accounts for YouTube, Soundcloud, and Twitter. Everything else went pretty smoothly and I think the way that I set up my domain will really be easy for everyone to use and very user friendly! I really enjoy working with all forms of media and that in itself has really kept me motivated in doing all of this work.
This is Agent Slota signing off until next time.
