Had something of an epiphany yesterday writing my latest review. It got me thinking: why end something just because you don’t have the time for it or don’t know what to do next? Improv is a good friend in such situations. So yeah, I may piss some people off, but for the time being, the site will stay active.
My inner mind:
site link (again): http://blog.cliffyvgmp3.com/wp
If you know what game title I’m referencing, pat yourselves on the back (hint: this logo)
anyway, the title is more than just a reference. It’s true; the end of the semester has finally arrived. And with that comes the last leg of the digital storytelling race! (not that any of us were racing to begin with…
now, I can say with the confident of confidence (if that makes sense) that this class was THE BOMB! Oh my gosh, there were so many things I learned about, like making gif’s and adding sound effects to videos and clips (the proper term eludes me at the moment). And Professor Smith, well…
Never had I known that most college professors could be so charismatic and amazing when it comes to teaching things. And then, Professor Smith just does what he does, and you are left in a great mood after that. Again professor Smith is the real MVP.
But I’ve been talking so much about the class and professor; I think I should speak on my plans for my site. And, well, I’m going to archive it.
I have a few reasons why:
- It’s hard to figure out what games I should review for on my site, since I haven’t played many popular titles and I don’t want to sound like a total nerd explaining games I’ve played that nobody has heard of. There are so many vgm’s that I could post about, but the site is supposed to be for both vgm’s and games, so it would be ridiculous posting things pertaining to one and not the other.
- It doesn’t provoke too much curiosity. I mean, the way that I named the site, it’s not like anyone would mistakenly type “vgmp3” or something and my site link would instantly pop up. Plus, I made a survey last month so that people could vote for a game, but only like 4 or 5 people voted, and I had to ask some of my friends if they could chip in just so the poll wouldn’t look embarrassing.
- I know that this will sound like a petty excuse, but I’m honestly the kind of person whose priorities run wild when something comes up (i.e a project from another class). And I’m a computer science major, so if it came down to finishing that or a post, I may laze for a bit, but I will try to get the CS work done first. It’s still may seem ridiculous since we can post at any time, but I’d prefer to post on a schedule.
That said, really loved the class, Professor Smith is amazing, and I’m going to post my last post on my site before I archive it.
Added a new vgm post on my site (p.s that means videogame music, if it still sounds strange to anyone), http://blog.cliffyvgmp3.com/wp . Also, who’s ready to present next week? Or the following week? I don’t know; this week is going to be confusing after Tuesday. Should I come in? Do I stay home? Do I come in on certain days and on other days stay home?
Yeah, that’s pretty much how I feel, too, Meeko. Anyway, I can’t wait to see how well developed everyone’s sites are on whatever day we meet next.
Im just keeping myself from counting the days. If I start counting days, then the time until my last final will seem… so… far…..
Whatever, Kim. Anyway, how about that Star Wars, doe?
So I’ve noticed- oh wait, Happy thanksgiving, everyone!
Now, with that out of the way, I’ve noticed that nobody’s taken the time to answer my poll. I’m honestly thinking that I should have picked something from the list and did it anyway, bu tf4 that wouldn’t be fair to you. So instead, I’m going to request again that you at least take a look at the poll (http://goo.gl/wqxWRB), and pick a topic. I’d be thankful if you all did so.
