ÏÑPŪT/ØÚTPÛT

Hello everybody! These last two weeks have felt like forever. I feel totally out of my DS106 rhythm!!

To start off this two week process, I forgot to do the first required Daily Create on February 27. To pay my penance, I submitted a Daily Create idea. My Daily Create idea I submitted was to create a checklist of your post-apocalyptic daily routine is. One can even use a character from their novel, their DS106 character or a generic apocalyptic survivor to do the checklist on. My example is below:

The next Daily Create I did was to role play that I was the President and I had to give my first command to my government. At first wanted to say legalize marijuana, but I decided that true to my name, cypherpunk106, my character would have wanted to punish the assholes responsible for the BULLSHIT that happened (and continues to happen).

I decided that I wanted to be continually extra so I submitted another Daily Create idea. I decided to make this Daily Create a game. The game is to trick your fellow DS106ers by playing two similar introductions next to each other and then having your classmates reply. Below is my example.

Even though I really like this idea, if I could go back I would submit this idea as an audio project idea. After showing a few of my classmates, they told me that it sounds fun, but is a little too much for a Daily Create. So, if I could go back I would definitely save that idea for an assignment and not a Daily Create.

The last Daily Create I did was this week was to write a postcard to someone I love with a message you want to be sure they get. I decided that cypherpunk106 would write to their parents and for one last time say *sorry for disappointing you*.

So while all these Daily Creates were happening, I was working with my group, Alt-F4, on our radio show. I wrote about our process here (you can even listen to our show there too) The first thing I did for this group was create a gif logo. This gif and post are the work that I am proud of this week. I got to mess around in Final Cut Pro make something pretty creative. I think the end result was an interesting Alt-F4 logo.

The last two weeks also meant that I finally finished “Oryx and Crake” Margaret Atwood. You can read my thoughts here.

These last few weeks have meant a lot of independent working. This means that I had to make sure that I was up to track in my Daily Creates and the work I was doing for our radio show. The last two weeks have also meant a break from the routine that I have gotten into for DS106. This was nice because the freeform structure sparked my creativity and allowed me to be present in all the things I was working on.

Now that we are back to our normally scheduled DS106 class, I am looking forward to our video weeks. If you’ve been following along, I have been playing with Final Cut Pro and video shenanigans recently. I am really looking forward to an opportunity to use these skills and apply them to our DS106 class.

These last few weeks have allowed me an opportunity to read a few of my classmates posts. I didn’t want to listen to my classmates radio shows yet because that’s what we’ll be doing next week. So, I read a couple of posts that are pre-radio show meaning the work they did before they recorded their radio show.

I really liked Geoff’s post about his group meeting and planning their radio show. Geoff and his group are going to do a zombie invasion themed radio show! They also are going to interview their personal characters during their radio show. Geoff also created a super legit and really nice graphic for his radio show that I really liked.  

I also read Rachel’s post on her group meeting and her graphic designs. Her graphics for her radio show are adorable! I especially love the font and images she chose. The one below is my favorite one she designed.

Well, these last few weeks have definitely been interesting. I have loved hanging with my Alt-F4 group and doing shenanigans with them.


Question of the Week

This week Martha asked

“If the apocalypse were to happen, and you had to become something. . .else. Which kind of something would you want to be and why?

Some kind of mutant, like a zombie, vampire, or werewolf?

A cyborg who looks like a human but is actually operating from an artificial intelligence?

A being from someplace other than Earth?

A supernatural being, capable of feats no human could even begin to comprehend?

A time-traveler with the ability to potentially travel back and forth in time to change the outcome of the apocalypse?

Something else?”

I would want to be a cyborg who looks like a human but is actually operating from an artificial intelligence. I think that this would be cool because I would be really smart. This also plays into my love of cyberpunk because I could be just a lil altered artificially, but still a lil human. I also don’t like emotions, so if I was a cyborg I wouldn’t have to feel things.

Well, that’s it for now. My DS106 brain needs a break. I’ll catch you on the flipside.
