My new site

I finally figured out the theme of my site. I’ve been sitting on the idea of starting an online magazine for a while but I was stuck without direction. I already have a strong interest in story telling and filmmaking which was a large part of the reason why I took this class to begin with. Using some of the things I learned from my time spent in my journalism classes as well as my time spent as a freelance videographer I see how I can combine the two to become an entertaining online magazine. As far as construction goes I bought a template that I am modifying and I designed the logo. I wanted the logo and site to give off a high end european magazine feel.

The link to my site is masspanik.com

Let me know what you think !

I read this article today:

Kind of Screwed

I think it’s ridiculous that Andy Baio got sued by the photographer for making a pixelated art version of the Miles Davis album. I think if you’re not making a profit on it, it should be fine to do “remixes” or “covers”. If you do want to make a profit, you gotta reach a settlement with the original artist. Simple as that. They gotta get paid too. It was just a pixelated form of the album cover, if anything that’s enough work put into something to make it not copying.

Customizing My Website

All CT101 posts I’ll do here, everything else will be on my website:

makkgully.com

This is the video I watched that helped me customize my theme:

I liked the 2015 theme better than the 2017 one, because I’m a fan of minimalism. I deleted most of the side stuff, and added just the name of this domain: MAKKGULLY.COM. I’m from Flushing, Queens, so that’s what I put under “About Me”.

MAKK GULLY is my artist name, and I’ll be using this website to share thoughts about movies, TV, and music that I currently enjoy. I’m also a Technical Theatre Major here, so once in a while I’ll share something I’m working on for a show or a song I’ve recorded.
