Weekly Summary #6
This week everything is kind of combined with week 7 but we had certain things to do this week and other next week and we have to write up a weekly post about them! We didn’t have much to do this week because it was all based on figuring out what we are going to do for our radio show! So that took a lot of time, thank you for not piling on the work also!!!!
Radio Show: So i am going to talk about our radio show for just a brief bit. We named our group the Tune Squad and used one of my ideas from last week as our idea. We are doing a different version of the Alternate Ending assignment from a while ago! I kind of had a hard time finding a group and we weren’t all together until like thursday night but we are all good to go to get it all done next week! Read more about our show here!
Radio Show Promo: I made a logo that will be used on any and all merchandise for our radio show! I took the tune squad logo from the movie Space Jam (it inspired our group name) and made it black and white to give it a noirish twist!
Tweet Along: We had to do another tweet along this week! I did it thursday night because it was the only night i wasn’t working. I really like the tweet along things, I remember the first story was all about how waldo was a thief and it ruined my childhood!!!! But i really like the noir stories because they are all investigative and that is all my kind of stuff!

Assignments: We had to do 10 stars of assignments with half of them being centered around our character. I did all the assignments earlier in the week but due to time couldn’t blog them until earlier today! The first one i did was called Get it out of my head. It was to whistle a song that will get stuck in your head, i did 4 songs and really like whistling so i did that one! It was only 1.5 stars however, but the easy ones are worth less. The Second one was to be your own music producer. This required us to combine a couple of sounds we make using whatever we can to make a song. I used random mouth noises and pen drumming to make a pretty sick beat! That was 3.5 stars. The last 2 i did were the ones centered on our character. It took me a while to get started on theses because i couldn’t think of anything audio wise to relate to my character. I was watching CSI and saw the Vocal Trio assignment and started with that! After doing that it gave me the inspiration to make a theme song for Geoffry Cunningham and his theoretical TV show! That was an assignment called be your own DJ and that completed my assignments for the week! They were worth 3 and 2 stars respectively.
Commenting: We had a 10 comment requirement this week also! I don’t know much to say about this except it is cool to see the work other people are doing and in one case someone did a voice over and used the same exact background beat that i did! I kept track of all my comments in a dumb little post to make sure i did at least 10.
Random but this week i also found a flaw in my theme design on individual post pages… THe heading and title get all scrunched together if they are more than one line so i need to fix that…
