For the 2nd remix, I did the Pop Star Out of Place assignment and remixed it. I decided to use the set of Happy Days as the place that the pop star would be out of place in and Harry Styles as my pop star because he was the first person who came to mind. I really enjoyed this assignment and remixing it was fun.
This week, the class focused on remixes and mashups. This is my first remix. I was told to make a collage of things that help me relax while also using this as an opportunity to advertise DS106.
For this assignment, I decided to do a collage of Safety Stan instead of myself. Mainly because we had to incorporate our created character into one of our assignments this week, but also I thought it would be fun to do.
I decided to do this assignment, worth 4 stars, because I really love my friends and enjoy showcasing that in whatever way I can.
This collage displays a couple of my awesome friends during a scavenger hunt we did in the mall at the beginning of the summer. We met 2 random guys who are also pictured in this collage who partook in our hunt. The guy “eating the shoe” (weird) is someone we met in Saxon’s and I decided to use him because my friends were so adamant about someone eating a shoe in the hunt. He thought the scavenger hunt was funny, so he allowed us to take his picture.
The old man that looks like he’s whipping my friends was asked to act like he was walking them like dogs, but he decided not to do that, so we got the awesome picture. It’s hilarious because that’s really what I imagine an old man who was angry at annoying college students doing. The man was hilarious and made us laugh!
I called the collage the crazy bunch because we’re aways doing crazy things and trying to find what crazy thing we can do next.
I chose Spiderman because he is my favorite super hero, so when I saw that I was able to make a photo through Photoshop of Spiderman doing a “mundane” task like taking out the trash, doing dishes, or washing laundry, I got really excited. I think it’s funny to make a super hero who is known for being powerful do a task like washing dishes or doing laundry. However, Spiderman is one of the superheroes who’d be most likely to wash his own laundry because he’s just an average guy. I really enjoyed this activity.
If you haven’t noticed from reading my other blog posts… I’m pretty passionate about Young Americans for Freedom. I love YAF because I’ve had many opportunities through the organization Young America’s Foundation.
