CT101 Final Post

So its finally time for the final blog post. This is kind of sad for me because this class is actually really fun. I learned a lot in this class from things in Photoshop to how to create Gifs, and I also learned how to portray my ideas and tell a story through the internet medium.

Things I enjoyed about the class, well for one, the professor was amazing. Professors such as Ryan come once in a blue moon. Not only is he understanding and interactive with his students. He also has a sense of humor and we make MEMES AS WORK. What other class let’s you do that?

My favorite project was probably my Zine Project. It required me to explore things and find ideas I wanted to portray in different ways. It was a really interesting and fun experience and it was amazing to see everyone’s projects together on the main Zine Project Page.

But sadly, this is probably the end to it all, that being this site.

I don’t think I will be continuing to post on this site, as the class is over and I wont have too much inspiration on keeping it going. This is pretty sad because I scored probably the best URL I could probably get. Honestly I may redesign the site for something else besides a blogging site, but for that I will have to wait until I have more extensive HTML and CSS knowledge.

So what do I want for the class? Damn well if you really wanna know I just want the PHD right now so I can get out. Just kidding. But seriously, grading myself is something that is sort of difficult, because when looking at myself objectively I will only think of the things that I have at fault. For instance, I have a few absences, talk a lot in class, laugh because Qadeer looks funny, or just space out in class. But I’ve done my work and I’ve put effort into my website. I think it’s time to not look down on myself so I think I deserve an “A.”

Zine Project Submissions

The Zine project was a fun collaborative work to be a part of. The images I chose are meant to tell a story from different perspectives. What story it tells is completely up to the person who is looking at the picture, for it is different to everyone.

For my first picture I chose a space theme because I love space. Space is vast and interesting and we are only expanding further and further into it. Putting technology in space is something we are only just starting to do and most of us have to look up at it from down on earth.

My second zine picture was inspired by something slightly different. Not technology way out in space, but the technology right down here in our hands, on our bodies. Technology has become part of our everyday life and I created this picture as a way to display that.

And for the third and final picture I chose cameras as a specific inspiration. Cameras are amazing tools that let us experience the world through a completely different lens besides our own. Cameras are something that can carry information, emotion, and even tell an entire story with just one shot.

GIF Creation

This assignment was fun because creating gifs was much more interesting than I thought it would be. The amount of different things when you have a creative mind is endless and this project helped me realize that. Here are the two gifs I created:

The GOAT 21 Savage
ALSO the GOAT, Spongebob of the Squarepants family.

Both of the characters in these posts are people I would say I can relate to in more than one way. So creating these gifs of them was very satisfying and fun.

Photoshop Battles Remake

Hello everyone, for this project I teamed up with my good friend Ricardo Deodutt to help me with finding images for the photoshop battles remakes project. I came up with some content based on the prompt and the images that follow are the outcome. I dont have much (if any), experience in photoshop before this class so please forgive my insanely lacking skills of the craft.

Remake

For this photo I took inspiration from the christ statue in brazil. Since they were both in the same position it seemed like i’d make the guy the actual statue of what he was mimicking.

For this project I wanted to make the screen Gordon Ramsay because I love watching his shows and so do all of these other people according to me.

Since the halls of York need some cleaning at times. I decided to take the task into my own hands to hire this kind janitor.

Doing this project was fun because I was exploring different ideas through photoshop and tried my best at making what I could! Thank you for reading my post! 🙂

Are Memes Art?

Memes are absolutely a form of art. It’s a way to share idea and express oneself in one of the most creative ways possible. There are absolutely endless amounts of meme templates and more and more are created everyday. Memes can be about literally anything from personal feelings to public politics to absolutely random images of bread standing on it’s side. Memes are also a form of culture because there are certain memes only a select few people of a specific demographic will understand and that just brings that community closer together.

One of my favorite memes is this Pikachu meme.

The reason its one of my favorites is because I find the face very amusing and the meme is also multi-functional and can be use in various situations and still be relevant.

These are a couple of my favorite memes at the moment, made by other people:

These are some of my favorites because of how random they are. Sometimes random is funny.

My CT101 Expectations

Before joining CT101 i didn’t know what to expect from the course because I hadn’t taken any other CT classes before and honestly I did not really know what CT was.

So at first I was like

After realizing the class was about making memes and animated gifs I was like

The only thing I have a problem is that Ryan keeps saying

So that brings up the ultimate question, which is it?

So I had to take this question to the most trusted source on the internet, Google.com.

Now according to google, my first thoughts turned out to be indeed true. It is gif(with a g as in good). Which means i’ve been saying it right this whole time! I still think Ryan will keep saying jif though.. Ill just keep the thought in my mind that i’m right every time I hear him say it.

But yeah the class seems pretty cool i’m excited for the year.

What makes me happy on the internet

There are many things that make me happy on the internet, which is why I use it so much. One of the main things I do on the internet is online gaming. Gaming is something I do whenever I have free time because its a great way to just escape from everything going on and just enjoying playing with friends. It is also a great way to hang out with friends without needing to leave your own house and comfort zone. League of Legends is probably the game I play the most on the internet. Its a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) style game where the player or, “Summoner”, has a pool of 144 different characters to choose and play. The goal of the game is to destroy the enemy nexus, but its not as easy as it sounds. When i’m not playing games, something I like to do to pass the time is watch anime. There’s so many out there and all different types of anime so you can always try something new. For those who aren’t familiar with anime, here’s one of the best fight scenes of all time (warning: major spoilers if you want to watch naruto shippuden). If that isn’t your thing, there are so many other different types so feel free to try it out.
