For my assignment I would like for you guys to triple troll three of your favorite artist. To triple troll means you will take the picture of one artist, the song lyric of another, and then quote it as another artist.

Here is my example:

The three artists I used was Chris Brown, Drake, and Kanye. The lyrics are actually Drake from Nicki Minaj‘s song Only that he featured on.

I used an app called Aviary, it is very easy and simple to use. I just picked a picture, clicked edit and added text onto the original picture. Enjoy and post your creations into the comments.

YT University and IG Confinement

The social media networks I use everyday, religiously, are Youtube, and Instagram. I also have a Google+, and Twitter account, but I never use them. I honestly can not figure out how Google+ works. Back in 2010, I deactivated my Facebook account. Maintaining a Facebook account, and being a freshman in college was not easy work. Plus, Facebook gets everyone into trouble.

My Youtube account, and Instagram account are used in two totally different ways. On Youtube I watch a variety of things. I use it to watch vlogs, tutorials, reviews, music videos, comedy skits, relaxation videos (ASMR), and I sometimes come across a laughing baby. No one has my Youtube information, I do not upload videos, and it’s not even my real name. It is purely used for educational, and entertainment purposes. Instagram is a different story. Instagram really is an addiction. You may not post everyday, but you are definitely on it everyday. I have not logged out since I downloaded the app. Instagram is the ultimate “Let me be nosey” app.  My Instagram is public, but it is also not under my real name. Your Instagram handle is something you give out freely (@_geniuschild). I have met friends on Instagram, and reconnected with old ones; however, you can also lose friends over Instagram, it’s called “Unfollow.”

On both accounts I am pretty careful with what I comment, and post. Even though on Youtube no ones knows it is me, I keep my negative comments to myself. On Instagram my posts are either funny, serious, artsy, photos of Bob Marley, photos of outings, or an occasional “selfie.”

“Controlling Your Public Appearance” by Danah Boyd, does not make me change my thoughts of how I use social media. I do not post anything that can cause me to lose a job, or a potential job. When my name is searched everything that is seen is volleyball related. However, if my Instagram were under my name, and my pictures were to appear, the person searching my name would know: I am humorous but sometimes serious, artistic, a lover of Bob Marley, who rarely goes out, and posts “selfies” once a month.

Strengths and Weaknesses

This photo was taken about two weeks ago at the gym to show my progress and encourage fitness motivation, using three different editing apps on my iPhone. Like most previously stated thats were my realm of expertise ends. I’m anticipating learning how to navigate different softwares on a more professional level.

Applications I’m most comfortable using include, Instagram, Studio, PixlrExpress+ and Hipstamatic. However, even then I’m mostly guessing and frustrated because it doesn’t turn out the exact shade of Vintage Hipster I was reaching for. These iPhone apps appear in my eyes to be the easiest to understand and are free, which is why I use them. By the end of the year I hope to purchase a quality camera for photo journalism so I’m eager to become tech savvy through this course.

Most software I’ve previously used were Audio Engineering programs used in my home studio, which include ProTools and Studio one. Although, I have experimented with PhotoShop and Illustrator I can’t say I’m content with my skills. iMovie and GarageBand are always fun to play around with but I can’t seem to fine tune like I’d wish. I’m excited to take this course and can’t wait to see the artistic excellence from my fellow students have to offer!
