Blog Questions

  • You can link a Javascript file to an HTML file by using
<script src=javafile.js></script>

included in the HTML code. It can be placed in the head or the body, depending on when you want the Javascript code to run.

  • Code written in the console can be used for testing something or for finding an error in your code, but it is not saved like when you write HTML/JS in a text editor and then open it in Chrome.

Final Blog Post

Wow, my final blog post. It feels like this has been a long time coming. This is my third time taking this class (for those of you who don’t know, some medical issues forced me to withdraw the first two times) and it feels good to have finally finished it. This time, I believe that I have earned an A.

I completed all of the projects and assignments that were assigned to us, and did so in a timely manner, and I personally believe I completed them skillfully as well. I enjoyed pretty much every aspect of this class, but I think my favorite was working on the wordpress customization and creating gifs, because while I had already had some experience working with photoshop, these things were new to me.

Overall, I’ve had a great time in this class, I’ve learned a lot, I plan to continue to maintain and keep up my website, and I just want to thank you for everything Professor Seslow.

Already Spoiled!

A quick update from me previous post, Dylan has been born for less than twelve hours, and I’m already spoiling him. I don’t have any children of my own, so I think that means I NEED to spoil my new nephew, right? His dad is a big basketball fan, so I’ve already placed a couple of orders online for a couple of onesies from his favorite teams. I got two different sizes, so that way he has one right away, and one to grow into. Again, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m so excited!

My New Nephew is Here!

My new nephew is here and I’m so excited! One of my closest friends had his second child last night, an adorable little baby boy. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a little while, and I finally got that text at 2AM. I can’t wait to meet him.

Oh and here’s a picture from two and a half years ago when I first met his big sister…

VaporWave

So today I made my first VaporWave image and I really like the aesthetic that is used in this type of work. The color’s are really appealing to me, and I liked the 80s/90s vibe that is included with it, along with throwing in a statue of Hades and his Cerberus.

GIF Portrait

This week, I really enjoyed creating an animated GIF through using photoshop.  I decided to use a portrait of Kevin Garnett, because he is one of my favorite all-time basketball players.  Since Kevin Garnett played for my favorite team, the Celtics, for a while, I decided to use change his face in the different frames of the GIF to different shades of green to show some Celtic pride.

After that, I decided to just play around with GIFs and photoshop and I decided to make one of myself.

Making Memes (and Memes I Like)

I decided to make a  meme out of Deadpool. I knew as soon as I googled him, I would find a good image to make a meme out of (this one took about 10 seconds to find). Deadpool is one of my favorite fictional characters (I have a Deadpool tattoo on my arm) and I know that he is usually very memeable (I don’t think that is a word, but it should be). I enjoyed making this meme especially because while this is the first meme I’ve made, I have used photoshop before.

PLUS – A few of my favorite memes

This is a combination of two of my favorite memes that are currently going around. There has been some back and forth between rappers Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem lately, which has resulted in a lot of memes. Another current meme trend is “believe in something” memes that are a play off of Nike’s campaign centered around Colin Kaepernick. This meme combines both concepts by saying MGK sacrificed everything in his career (a lot of people, me included, feel he was outdone by Eminem), in order to do what he believed in (releasing a diss track directed at Eminem).

This is one of the many examples of Kevin Hart memes that I really enjoy. Like Deadpool, Kevin Hart is very memeable. I chose to post this specific one because I relate to it on a deep level, because even when people don’t me, it won’t stop me from being me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Flexible Digital Storytelling

I went through the DS106 Assignment Repository to browse through different assignments, and there were a few that caught my eye.  First, I came across an assignment about making a gif of the “Best Sports Play” of the past year.  This was an assignment that interested me, and I currently have the tools need to complete this, as seen below.  I think we are going to do a lot of projects that incorporate making gifs throughout the semester, and I think that is a very important skill when it comes to digital storytelling.

The next project I noticed was “Turbo Charged Animated GIF.”  While I currently don’t have the tools to complete this, I feel I will learn how to work with something like this (creating separate animation zones in one image) through different projects throughout the semester.  I think these skills are important as well to add diversity to my animation ability by being able to animate specific sections of an image, as opposed to either the whole thing, or turning a clip of a video into a gif.

 

Reaction GIFs

I’ve been out of school for a couple of semesters, but now that I’m back, I’m feeling pretty happy.  

But I’m also pretty nervous to be back in class.

But overall, I’m just excited and ready to jump right into things and see how I can do.

 

 

Making Me Happy and My First GIFs!

Hello everyone,

So I’ve been struggling with what to write for this “making me happy” post for a few days.  Eventually I just decided to go with the only things I been watching on the internet recently.  Basically, I’m a huge sports fan, and I’ve been getting really excited about upcoming basketball and football seasons.  Football season starts this week, and I’m getting excited to watch my favorite team, the Baltimore Ravens, play again…

And basketball season is also right around the corner, and I can’t stop watching highlights of the players coming back healthy to my favorite team, the Boston Celtics, too…

Like Kyrie Irving..
