Final Blog Post

Where do I begin on the final blog post to say goodbye to CT101?  Well ok… let’s start  with what I enjoyed the most. This might seem really basic but I really did enjoy making GIFs. This is because I found the GIFS very funny and I felt like you can use them for anything so easily. The GIFS were a good way of communicating how I felt about something. Here’s one to describe how I feel right now…

Aside from making GIFS , I have also learned other cool things like finally using Photoshop. I will only say  that I only got the basics on how to use Photoshop and that is only because, I need to continue to work on learning how to use it.  Also, using the memes were pretty cool as well.

 

When it comes to the website, I don’t know if I am going to keep it up because it isn’t really something I can use towards a porfolio. I used my website for personal reasons and I really enjoyed using it that way. But If I do use this website in the future, then I will probably erase everything and start from scratch.

But overall I really did enjoy the class, I liked the freedom that I had with this website, I enjoyed using it to tell my stories about my crazy life. From what I experience  , to what I feel sometimes and I know it all sounds crazy sometimes and that’s why I enjoyed telling it all on this website.

Best Bear Post

This here is Best Bear, he loves his phone and he also loves candy as well. Best Bear is very kind hearted . This is because he loves to be on his phone a lot and likes his friends internet posts. He spends the day in his cave just eating candy and when he goes out, it is really to only buy some more candy. 

Are Memes Art?

Memes are actually art because they communicate how people may feel about a situation or as most of the time, it is used for the purpose of telling jokes which again goes back to it being a form of creativity. So therefore, it is art because of how it allows for people to express their feelings

I really like the thanksgiving memes…

Flexibility in Digital Storytellling.

One of the project ideas that I really like is the Alternate Universe project. I like this idea because it allows for a person to place themselves within an alternate universe that they would like to be in. I feel like I can use my Photoshop skills that I have to make myself apart of a alternate universe. I would also like to try the “create a movie poster” because it could be a chance to learn Photoshop more. Also, it’s a chance to make some wacky things.

What’s Making Me Happy on The Internet

Thinking about what makes me happy on the internet is not very hard. Last week I would have said Snapchat makes me happy on the internet but, since the recent update, ehhhhhhh (had to throw some shade). I can say that what makes me happy on the internet is one of my favorite apps, Instagram. Let me explain, this is because I like to follow different blog sites Instagram pages. My favorite page to follow is The Shade Room and that is because it catches me up on the latest celebrity gossip and tea constant throughout the day. Aside from the gossip and tea, it also shares information on current events going on and it also promotes and advertises black businesses, so I really like the page because of all it has to offer and it makes me happy 😊

My First GIF Post

For the first two weeks of this class, I’m feeling kind of curious of what is to come, but I’m EXCITED for what’s to come in the class, because I feel that there is no limit to what I can do.

Also, I really want to see what’s next because I really enjoyed making gifs so here’s another one…

The Copyright Issue

I watched Everything is a Remix, and I found it pretty interesting. One thing that really stood out to me from the video was the  idea that everything comes from an idea from the past. Nothing is truly original on it’s own these days, because we use ideas from the past, remix it to be a new thing and there it’s our own. Another thing that had also stuck out to me was the topic about the copyright laws placed on art and patents on technology. In my opinion, I feel that laws like this are totally unfair. This is because it blocks room for true creativity. Going back to one of the main points made in the video, all ideas come from another, and using ideas to create new ones should be okay if you are fundamentally changing it overall. The law should only apply if an idea is being used without any kind of changes, but if the person s only using the idea to make their own unique creation then there should not be a problem and the law should not step in.
