So April is all about Coachella. You know, the music festival of all music festivals. Every year celebs go all out with the fashion looks during the week of Coachella and Rihanna is no different. Every year she comes to slay. Every look, every year is always to die for but this year I was a bit torn.  At the festival Rihanna strutted in two different looks. One included a crystal Gucci bodysuit and the other was a denim dress. Check them out:

As a fashion lover and an even bigger Rihanna lover, it’s so different for me to say this but RiRi let me down this year. The crystal jumpsuit was okay. In the picture above it doesn’t look too bad. It looks like a costume but it isn’t horrible. But she totally lost me when she add the head covering, which totally make it look like a costume.

As much as I love Rihanna, she looks like a rich alien, diamond studded- Gucci wearing alien. I mean, don’t get me wrong, if I had to look like an alien; that’s the type of alien I would want to look like. But I don’t have to look like an alien and neither does she.

The second look, the denim dress and white boots also looks like a costume. Well, mostly the boots.  They definitely remind of this

Nonetheless, I still to cant wait until next year to see her looks. Call me crazy!

United…WTF

United Airlines messed up BIG TIME.

This week United Airlines dragged a passenger off of an overbooked flight.

Here’s a brief rundown of the facts:

An United Airlines flight from Chicago to Louisville, Kentucky was oversold by four seats. This error caused the airline to offer passengers $400, then $800 to voluntarily give up their seats and catch a later flight. Although a high incentive was offered, the airline didn’t find the four passengers to disembark the plane. Therefore, they resorted to selecting passengers and forcing them to give up their seats. One of the chosen passengers was a 69 year old doctor, Dr. David Dao. When Dao refused to give up his seat, law enforcement was called by the airline staff.  Officers forcibly dragged Dao off of the aircraft. Video of the incident shows Dao being slammed against an armrest, causing him to bleed from his mouth.  View the video here.

There are so many things wrong about this situation. I’ll list them.

  1. United f*cked up from the beginning. They oversold the flight. That isn’t the passengers fault. Not even a little bit. I understand that things happen, but you can’t kick someone off the plane because you messed up. Figure it out and be apologetic; not pushy and demanding.
  2. As a passenger, when I buy flight tickets, I select the flight that fits my schedule. If Dao wanted to be on a later flight, he would have selected that from the jump. He HAD STUFF TO DO!  I don’t blame him for wanting to keep his seat. I would be insulted and would totally feel targeted if I’m sitting in my seat and staff member pulled up like “Hey, get off the plane.”
  3. Dragging someone off a plane when they didn’t do anything wrong? Yall know what that sounds like to me? A LAWSUIT! Rightfully, Dao has retained a high power attorney who will fight to get his the coins he deserves!
  4. United’s CEO can save that weak apology. Initially he defended the staff, then after getting dragged on social media, decided that he owes the passenger an apology. Too little, too late.
  5.  I don’t have anything else, so SCREW UNITED.

Making it My Own

I finally have my own website.

 

I have all of these amazing ideas of how I want it to look. But when I couldn’t even decide of a photo to replace the plant, I realized that it’s much harder than I thought.

Now I have to watch the few tutorials on how to customize my site so that it doesn’t look like an interior design advisement. I’ll try this tutorial first,  and then this one. If you’re reading this and you still see that plant, then I’ve failed.

Let’s see

It’s Lit !

So this week we began watching tutorials for Photoshop. The original tutorial we watched showed how to create animated photos. I’m not really interested in learning to do this so I suffered to sit through the majority of the tutorial this past weekend.

I am VERY interested in learning to edit photos on Photoshop though. I found a tutorial that teaches beginners to learn the basic and most used tools. Check it out:

So after watching this tutorial, I worked on practicing one of the skills: Removing a person or object from the photo.  Here is the original

and here is the the photo that I edited: 

As you can see, I totally removed the little girl in the orange shirt. It looks like she was never there ! I even got rid of her shadow ! I am so excited. I’m def about to go remove my ex out a few photos that I liked ! Haha !

I plan to continue learning the photo editing skills available on photoshop! More to come !

Class Assignments

I think it’s great that we get to select some of our assignments. After checking out the DS106 Assignment Bank, I’ve settled down on two assignments.

The first assignment I’ve chosen is a visual assignment, Real Life Brady Brunch. I am certain that I could complete this assignment with skills that I already have. Every one with an Instagram should be a pro at making Pic Collages. I think this assignment will be fun because it’ll allow me to show off my friends and family. Also, I selected this assignment because I used to watch the Brady Brunch with my Grandmother ! Stay tuned for the final results.

The second assignment I picked is a video assignment, Video Double Vision. I have no idea how I could put this together but I think it’ll  be so cool. When I was younger and I learned that Lindsay Lohan played both characters in The Parent Trap, I was amazed. I would love to pull this off. I have no experience with video editing or filming so those are skills I would need to learn in order to successfully complete this assignment. I look forward to the challenge.
