No Stain No Problem todo

So do you want to know what goes on at the No Stain No Problem? Well here is one days todo list in which is a pretty normal day. Although I can not say legally that any of this actually happened but let me say that we will not be having a pesky neighbor problem anymore.

This assignment is worth two stars from the visual assignment bank and I made it using my sticky note feature on my computer. Of course I know all my fellow co-workers but if you want to see more about our bios visit http://kelseyroach17.wix.com/no-stain-no-problem#!staff/c1atl

Buy Blood Be Gone

Watch out! If you purchase blood stain remover from any other company except for No Stain No Problem your eyes will fall out, your toes will shrivel into your body, then your head will explode into a million pieces. So I will leave it up to you, either buy an unnamed product that will make your head explode or buy Blood Be Gone and get rid of the bloody mess on your carpet fast and easy.

p.s. I am not saying this just because I work for No Stain No Problem, which sells  Blood Be Gone.

I made this poster with postermywall.com and found a cool template for a warning poster. I thought the flames were a good backgroud becausue they would catch your eye along with the the big warning text that will bring you in to read the small text.

Which Character Are You In Noir Not The Father

For this web assignment I created a quiz on uquiz.com. This quiz is all about finding out who you are most related to on the show I was apart of on Noir Not the Father. The coolest person to get would be Micheal Bretton but there are a couple other good choices out there. Using uquiz.com was actually very easy and I would recommend it instead of the other site that the assignment suggests. It was very easily laid out and I did not run into any confusing spots.

My Resume

For my first assignment this week I made my resume for three stars. I used Microsoft word and I got to tell you it is damn hard to make a resume when you have been working for the same organization for over 30 years. The only experience I have is with the Atlanta police department and I have never had to apply to another job before. I actually do not even remember how to make a proper resume because I honestly thought I would never need to again. Is it okay to talk about your girlfriend in your resume? Eh whatever Blair is my sugar momma (as of now) so she deserves to be in it.

Below is a link to get to my resume but below that is an embedded link from flickr if the main link does not work. Let me know what you think!

Burtis Interviewing Ol Mick

First off my video uploaded to my normal account not the one I use for ds106 so make sure you don’t try to go to my you tube account cause you wont be able to find the video and secondly I used a movie editor app that didn’t tell me until I uploaded that it was going to place a sticker at the bottom of the screen. Besides these two technical difficulties I hope you enjoy my interview.

 

Ol Mick’s Trip to see Ava Harlowe- 1 1/2 stars

Ava Harlowe and Ol Mick Bretton have been good friends since they were kids. Mick decides to surprise Ava in Los Angeles. His trip starts in Atlanta and Mick hits a few road bumps along the way.

Atlanta to Houston

Mick arrives in Houston, TX after about 11 hours of driving. He gets there and finds out that he forgot to reserve a  hotel room. Mick drives around for about two hours until he finds a cozy little bed and breakfast. He knocks on the door to find out that the owner is a dominatrix and he pays by letting her do whatever she wants to him. Mick decides to not stay in the bed and breakfast and sleeps in his car.

Houston to Albuquerque

The next day Mick gets all the way to Albuquerque when his tire blows out. He has to wait in a pep boys for 3 hours to get a new tire on his car. A huge coincidence happens here when he is given two options to pay. One with standard cash and the other is for the mechanic to dominate him. He pays with money.

Albuquerque to Los Angeles

The next day Mick gets to Los Angele’s just to find out that Ava is visiting family in New York. He is super pissed but decides that there is nothing he can do so he decides to get a hotel. He goes to check in to find the first dominatrix had to move her business to Los Angeles because of the business market. Mick looks in his wallet to pay with standard cash but finds out he spent it all on the new tire. I think you can figure out what happens next. (The safe word was thunderbun)

 

Stellar Story with Rick Shannon- 3 1/2 stars

For this assignment I had to make a story using the app stellar. The app was very easy to use. I just downloaded it and it gave me a quick tutorial of how to use it. I would recommend to anyone that they should download this app if they want an easy way to make a story.

I was searching through other people in ds106 to find a character to do a story with. I came across Rick Shannon. He is a cop who has had his brother and father killed. My character Ol Mick loves to solve crimes so he took over the case of finding out who killed Shannon’s blood line. Mick being the super detective that he is finds the guy and puts him in jail.

Warning Poster Assignment- 3 stars

Look out for billy steel. He's dangerous.

For this assignment Brian Burns and I got together and worked on a visual assignment. This assignment was to create a warning poster for something dangerous. Burns character is Billy Steel who is a vigilante and my character (Micheal Bretton) is a detective. We discussed what we could do for this assignment  and we thought about how a vigilante could be trouble to a detective. So this poster is a warning poster posted by Micheal Bretton trying to capture Billy Steel.

We played around with photo shop to create this poster. It took a while to get the perfect font for the “WARNING” but we finally agreed on one.

Commercial That Describes Ol Mick- 2 stars

This assignment was a bit tricky because I had to search through you tube a lot to find a commercial that would work without the video to go along with the audio. I did this by listening and not watching the screen. After I found the right audio I converted it to audio only using you tube to MP3 then put it on audacity. After that I put it on sound cloud and made a post.

Ol Mick’s Emotions Through Sounds- 3 stars

The emotion I am trying to convey in this post is a relaxed feel until Ol Mick drinks too much. From the beginning up until the puke the feel is calm with what seems like a pre party environment. The band is tuning up and everyone is having slow conversation until Ol Mick breaks the calmness.

To make this I first downloaded crowded bar noise which set the environment for the calm, relaxed feel.  Then I downloaded a beat that sounded like a guitar tuning which set the environment for the band getting ready to perform that night. Then I got the sound of Ol Mick laughing which is a pretty heavy laugh which shows that he is having maybe a little bit too much fun, which then becomes evident when he becomes sick which was the last sound I downloaded.

So in conclusion these sounds make a relaxed feel but since my character is such a drunk he ruins the calm.
