Beginning of the best thing

For this assignment http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/how-it-all-began/ I added the history and beginning of the Black Widow Agency and added it to the History section of our website : http://blackwidow.kendallparker.com/history/. You can find how we were really created if you could not guess from the maNOIRpulators which was actually what got it started. Thankfully, I had some background in owning a business and knowing how to run one or… well you know what you can just read how we started on our website ;)

Don’t get bit

I created  http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/bumper-sticker/ which was to make a bumper sign. I figured I would do this assignment because I had a catchy phrase that went with our group and I wanted to use it! I used our colors of black and red and then our black widow picture and put it in the bottom right corner. I can not wait to see this sticker on peoples cars ;)

I made this bumper sticker on Paintbrush. I used the line tool and drew a black line through the center and then I inserted the picture of the black widow. Once I got that positioned I wrote the words and I used black and red and I did the words in red because its what you need to do or something bad could happen, hence why I put them on different sides of the line.

Who are you like?

I did the assignment http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/buzzfeed-personality-quiz/ because I thought it would be interesting to see what character of our agency you got. Who do you really think you are or do you know most? It shouldn’t take you long to accomplish this short quiz and see which one of us mysterious four women you could be  similar too ;). 

I did this on buzzfeed.com and then I went to Personality Quiz and created it on there. I made 6 questions and had three or four answers for each question to go with each member of our group. Once I thought of all the questions I went through and added pictures for each answer and question to give you a visual of them. Once I had all the questions and answers with pictures I saved and published it. If you want to take our quiz go ahead and click the link at the bottom, you won’t regret it! :) I mean who does not want to know which member of the Black Widow Agency you are most likely like.

Lets drive somewhere.

I did the assignment http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/design-a-license-plate/ which was to create a license plate that described a character or group. What better group to make a plate for than the Black Widow Agency. I made our plate say WIDOWS because we are the widows and it would look great on one of our cars;). I created this by using buildasign.com and then I added in the background, which I got off google by searching nightscapes. Once I got the photo and placed it onto the plate I choose the word “WIDOWS” and then placed that onto the plate. I picked the state Pennsylvania because that is where the agency is located and the maNOIRpulators like to spend our time! I choose blue for the state because it stood out against the background and then white for the word because it went perfect with the background.

I hope you guys enjoy our lovely license plate…and if you don’t, well you don’t want to know what could happen to you ;)

Why you talking to yourself Margaret?

For this assignment we had to record ourselves having a conversation with myself; http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/have-a-conversation-with-yourself/. I did this by recording myself in two different outfits on IMovie. After I got the recordings I put them together to flow together and make a conversation .

I did this assignment because who doesn’t want to have a conversation with themselves? I mean come on but I was having a discussion about the latest lose in my life with my second husband passing away. When are they going to learn? Thats all i want to know, well i guess I won’t know anytime soon. Oh well. I guess I am not called the Black Widow for no reason..

Ready, Set, Action…

This is my interview with our lovely professors. I mixed it up and did some from each one. This assignment was actually not too bad but I was not a fan of the whole interview scene. I don’t like people getting too noisy into my business. I just took each of the questions recorded my answers and then put them all together on IMovie. Here ya go:

 

 

Don’t get bitten ;)

This assignment was for me to tell a story through flashcards, http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/this-is-my-story/For this assignment I wanted to tell my story about how I get what I always want. Yes, it might have been in the expense of my first husband but I got what I wanted at the end of the day. Let’s just say that this was the day that started my reputation for the rest of my life. I do not regret a thing that happened that day because it changed my life and it was for the better. Lesson learned that day: Do not cross the Black Widow or you will get bitten ;) Movie on 3-29-15 at 9.25 PM

This assignment was done on PhotoBooth on my computer as well, all I did was go to the effects button and find black and white. I felt like black and white gave it more of the feeling it makes you have. Once I found my effect I just recorded myself and there you go you have my story! 

Lets go to the Eiffel Tower.

How do you live in France your whole life and never go to the Eiffel tower? That was my thought exactly, so I decided it was time I took a trip since I now have some free time being alone and all. It was a great change of scenery and who would have thought but I got my eye on a new potential  man ;) 

Movie on 3-29-15 at 9.03 PM

I did this assignment by going onto PhotoBooth on the computer and finding the background in the effects. I am not going to lie me and technology are not friends so this took me a long time to accomplish. Once I got my effect I just recorded myself in front of it, so I guess you could say I had the “green screen effect”.

I think its time to show off…

For this assignment I had to take assignments I have done in class and make a video of them. http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/show-off/ I worked with Kendall Parker to combine our characters and make the video of both our characters. For this assignment we both took our favorite assignments that we did for our characters and then made a video. I picked nine assignments for my character Margaret and Kendall picked nine for her Character Julia. After we picked the assignments, Kendall took them and made the video and added music and words to each photo or sound part to give you an idea of what the assignment is. I enjoyed this assignment because I got to work with a classmate, it took care of the requirements for my character and it was an interesting assignment. I hope you enjoy the video off all our favorite works for our characters :)

Pinteresting!

For this assignment I had to make a Pinterest account using my character and pin 20 post that go to my character. For this I used my character and Amanda Layton’s character Sylvia Stone and pinned 10 post for both our characters. This was not that hard to find things for my character but I had to kind of think of things to do for Sylvia until I reread her blog post about her character and it made it so much easier with her sections of interests and information. I found things from what they wear to their jobs or activities outside of work. I really enjoyed doing this assignment because I got to look up different things on Pinterest and do it with someone else’s character gave me that challenge that I was ready to take on. I hope you guys enjoy the pins :)   Pinterest
