We know Jack's game. He's running it all: I spent a long time this week digging up dirt, connecting the dots, talking with my team at Stirrup Trouble. I think we got him dead to rights. We got this earlier in the week, so we traced it back from there:   Jack's Peace Offering? #noir106 #StirrupJack pic.twitter.com/EWqKjdLTmH— Donnie Rawlen (@donnie_rawlen) April 14, 2015   This...

There's much to be said about the passion of investigators. However, I am not one of those such people. We were tasked to pubic investigate the mysterious Jack persona. I was not eager. I haven't found much, I'll admit. I found a few morsels, but those did not help our case in any meaningful way. We were to discover Jack, and possibly his motives. I'm...

Found a couple gals this week. The founder's gone bananas. Wonder what her story is. Seems like an interesting gal. She started up a web site for us. Other dame, Del, seems she'll fit right in. We both sent up our resumes to Delia. I used something called LinkedIn, even though I still feel a bit disconnected. Bananas said she had some work for us....

Where, oh where, to begin. Perhaps "when to begin" would be a better phrase to use here. My family is still on my mind, so I created an announcement regarding train safety. They were still on my mind when I made breakfast burittos. I cooked too much, and set their places before realizing what I'd done. After that, I felt like I needed to see...

So, this week was actually quite a bit of fun up until this Sunday night. I finished all of my work by 10:30 this evening. But that's where trouble started. First, it was my 30 MB YouTube upload for my video essay that took an absolutely ridiculous amount of time to upload, then my videoessay post went awry three separate times. So, I deleted it....

This week, Donnie Rawlen's character has been exposed for a bit longer than my typical approach of fleshing him out via shorter assignments.  I'd previously planned to use smaller assignments to create pixels, hoping to end the semester with a mosaic-like composite of his character. The collaborative requirement turned my mosaic into a Picasso. So, I went with it, just like Donnie would. So, I...

Bring on Spring Break! This week was pretty tedious. I could feel the pressure of my decision to volunteer for writing the script for "Noir We There Yet?" throughout each day. But, I started out my daily creates for the week with my Spaceship! excitement to keep me going. I had such a blast with that daily create! Then, coincidentally, I found Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship,...

This week has been so ridiculous in terms of weather that it really messed up my usual schedule of going to campus at night and working on assignments. It's a lot less distracting to work in an un-cramped space like the ITCC, rather than a silly library cubicle. I have distractions-a-plenty at home, with the added negative of an unreliable internet connection, plus I'm a night...

I had an absolute blast this week.  I started off by reading and responding to the Vignelli Canon, which had a lot of great information about design that helped me throughout the week.   My first completed assignment was my Professor Groom Poster, wherein I turned him into Han Solo shooting first at Greedo in the Tatooine cantina, which was a fun assignment in its...

I, being the "uncultured swine" that I am, hadn't realized that the GRAMMYs were this week.  I don't know if that was the rationale for making this Audio week, but I'll just assume it was. I started off the week by checking out the required readings, and chose Helen Hanson's "The Ambience of Film Noir- Soundscapes, Design, and Mood",  It was very informative, and critiqued...
