What’s the Meme?


I have been waiting for awhile to find the right photo to use in this Visual assignment on Ds106 , and I happened to be riding the JR line in Tokyo on my way to CIS, and the train was very crowded, and it really smelled extra bad on this day. Well, the source of this awful smell is right there in this picture. I wasnt even standing directly infront of him before the picture and I could smell his breathe. I ended up getting forced into the spot infront of him because of the train being so crowded. I figured since I had to witness his awful hygiene I was going to get this photo! The train had just stopped at Ueno, and I wanted to take a movie and make fun of this awful smelling guy, but I found an iphone app which would allow me to take silent photos. So I quickly downloaded the app and captured the moment, he was snoring and smelled horrible and right as I captured the photo he opened his mouth to yawn and let me tell you… I almost died of some kind of poisoning…


I used photo shop and just created 3 layers. The first layer was installed to add a backround for the text. I think that the green fade blends well because when I think of stinky gas or something, green comes to my mind and I definately wanted to kind of have a stinky theme. My second layer I dedicated to installing the Text, which states “Brush yo teeth man!!!” (Yo=your) I wrote this particular text because it’s what I wanted to say to him. Finally, my third layer, I decided to add green air brushed streaks as if his chemical/gas breathe was toxic, with little chemical/gas toxin entities also escaping his mouth.

I found this Ds106 assignment and the first thing that came to my mind was FREE WILLY. For those of you who dont know, Free Willy is a movie that came out in 1993 about a killer whale that was captured and placed into an aquarium. Teenage kids felt the need to free him.

The photo I found on a CC search engine which took me to Milan Boers. Thanks for sharing this photo which I used as my Quote photo.

The quote came to my mind for no apparent reason…

Car Lust

Only the elite can obtain it

DS106 Visual Assignment, Visualassignment123

This car is really a dream car, I think there are less than 20 of them that exist. I heard they cost about 2 million dollars. I love this car because it is a goal of mine to someday own one. But that is a big dream, and I know it will probably never happen and I dont care. Thats it, Just a dream car… If I had 2 million dollars i wouldnt spend it on this thats for sure. I would need like a couple billion for me to think of dropping 2 million on this. But still… DREAM CAR!!!

This is where I got the photo special thanks to terrazzo for sharing this photo.

Alan Kay He Did More Than Share a Slice



Purpose: Alan Kay is one of our pioneers we must cover, and he helped create multi-tasking for computers as far as opening more than one window on a screen. There is so much more that he has done to contribute to cyberspace, but this my theme for this particular project. I found a funny photo on google, and I decided to find a project for him. Originally I wanted to use this photo and add text like you see. He has his hand raised as if being called upon, and I thought perfect way to make myself laugh. which I did.. but the ds106 assignment requires a pioneer that we have chose to have some kind of food in his hand so i found a pizza to use for the simple fact that he is sharing with us more than just a slice of pizza. INNOVATION. Notice the icons below the picture, well those were to show kind of a multiple window function….

How: I used photoshop and it seemed like it took forever for something that should be so simple…

I hope this finds you well, and can make someone laugh at least a little bit.
