Who Called? Veronica, of course!

For one of my assignments this week, Erin Clark and I decided to do the assignment, Who Called? that was submitted by Demi Fulcher.

I collaborated with a fellow ds106er Erin Clark to complete this assignment! Erin and I met when we worked on our radio show together and our characters have a lot in common so it wasn’t hard to collaborate.

The assignment is to, “Record you self making a phone call as if you were a character off of the wire. The phone call has to be to another character from the wire. You can even make it a three way or four way call. You phone call can even be a voicemail as if someone didn’t pick up. Cutomize it as much as you like! The phone call has to be at least 2 minutes.” The assignment is worth 4 points.

Erin and I decided to make our characters friends while planning our radio show. Veronica and Shirley have a lot in common. They share a lot of the same interests. We wanted to keep their friendship going so we decided to collaborate.

Veronica left a message to Shirley first! This is her message:

In response to Veronica’s message, I recorded myself (as Shirley) on Audacity and then saved it as a WAV file. Once I saved it, I uploaded it to SoundCloud.

Here is Shirley’s message to Veronica:

I really liked this assignment because not only was I able to collaborate with a fellow ds106er which was awesome, but I also got to dig even deeper into my character’s life and I am really enjoying building off of Shirley’s life!

Guess the Song!?!

For one of my assignments this week, I decided to do the assignment, Favorite Song that was submitted by Alicia Almberg.

The assignment is to,”¬†Take your favorite song. Remove the lyrics. Play only up to thirty seconds of the song. Listener must be able to guess. ” The assignment is worth 1.5 points.

I recorded my favorite song (without the lyrics) and uploaded it to soundcloud.

I liked this assignment because I thought it would be cool to see people’s guesses. (It’s really not tricky)

Here is my favorite song! Take a guess and comment what you think it is! Enjoy :)

Treat Yo Self- DO IT!

For one of my assignments this week, I decided to do the assignment, Based On 1-Quote-A-Day Project that was submitted by Rimi Morita.

The assignment is to, “Read your quote for a day out loud, and record it! Do not forget to give an appropriate feeling to it. Tone of voice could be a helpful hint for answerers to guess where your quote came from. Mimicking the original tone could be nice enough, but you also can add your own feelings to it as well. :)” The assignment is worth 1.5 points.

I decided to do this assignment because I have an obsession with quotes. I have them throughout my room, in my planner, on my pinterest boards, etc. If you haven’t noticed, at the end of each of my weekly summaries I include a quote. This week I included the quote “Treat Yo Self” because I feel that we all need to do that more often.

If you’re having a bad week, treat yo self! Really just do it sometimes! You are worth it :)

I recorded myself reading the quote on soundcloud and uploaded it.

I loved this assignment! It was supa easy, but I really liked it!

Treat Yo Self! DO IT!

Stay With Me Over-Dramatized

For one of my week four assignments, I chose to complete the Over-Dramtic Reading assignment that was submitted by Chris Randles.

The assignment is to, “Choose any written material (a song, poem, short book, excerpt from a novel, scene from a television show, news article, etc.) and record a dramatic reading. Read your selection in a way that alters the message of the original material (at an odd pace, overly excited, sad, etc. — be creative, make it your own). Make sure you mention what it is you are reading, and who the author of the material is.” The assignment is worth 1.5 points.

I chose to dramatically read Sam Smith’s song, Stay with Me. The song is very somber and sad and I made it very angry and mad. I recorded myself in Audacity and then saved the file as a .WAV. Once I was done, I uploaded it to my SoundCloud. Here it is…

I was a bit nervous while doing this assignment because I kept thinking I was going to cough and ruin everything. Luckily I was able to contain myself for the time being. I really liked this assignment because I found it kind of amusing. It really changes the meaning of the song without even changing the words. Kind of funny!
