Stirrup Trouble got their first case this week. We spent the week gathering evidence by dividing and conquering. We split up the major players- BB&B among the three of us. I took on Burtis. Initially, I couldn’t get anything out of her. The preliminary evidence raised more questions than it answered. I gathered more evidence, but I don’t want to jump to conclusions. We’re playing with people’s lives, here. Jack could be anywhere. You could be Jack. Jack could be you.
Hello, lovelies. It’s been a hectic week. Let’s run through everything, shall we? (more…)
Two TDCs don’t deserve their own post. How conceited, TDCs.
I’m currently writing this while on break on my boyfriend’s computer. It’s been hailing. I am iced in. Trapped. Nowhere to run. I also have no records of my comments this week so I’ll edit those in tomorrow. (Hint, I’ve been slacking this week) (more…)
(ps weekly puns still definitely a thing) (more…)
A man walks into a dentist’s office and says
“Doc, you have to help me. I’m a moth trapped inside of a human’s body!”
The dentist replies “Good heavens man, you need a psychiatrist at once! But tell me, why did you come into my office?”
The light was on. (more…)
(ha ha ha ha ha)
Okay audio week was a thing. I did Daily Creates, an audio reflection, a sound effects story, a radio bumper, radio show brainstorming, and a soundboard conversaton. I also commented on two blogs, and did some tweeting.

Audio week wasn’t too bad. I was lucky enough to know some of the basics of Audacity, though I was too stubborn to look up tutorials so most of what I ended up doing was just experimenting with the various effects until I got something I liked. That probably wasn’t the best way to go about things, but it worked well enough and I was able to get pretty good results. I read Radio Noir in the USA, and while it was interesting, I wasn’t really sure how to tie it in anywhere. It mostly compared the film and radio versions of several storied and detailed the financial benefits of releasing a radio play of a film. It was cool to be able to listen to a Lux Theatre show, though, and really see what they meant by the studio audience participating. It definitely gave an intimacy to the actors that would have been difficult to find elsewhere. Really shows where these celebrity endorsements got their start. I look forward to designing next week- I’ll be going home to my costume studio so I may make an appearance as Delia. Semi-appearance, at least, as I don’t have a sultry chanteuse voice without editing. Also I’m not very good with accents. Oh well, we’ll see.
This week, I did things a bit out of order. I did start out with organizing my blog, which was pretty easy. All I really had to do was work with the parent and sub categories on my menu, rearrange them into a better format, and tag my existing posts. I then did a slew of visual assignments for a total of ten stars. I entered Delia’s bag and mind, had a swift change of emotion, and came up with a hot new band. I read up on taking photos, did a noir safari, and analyzed some cinematography.
This week has been pretty hectic for me. I’m glad I was able to do everything on time, and I feel that I did it all fairly well. I definitely noticed a lot of the noir photography and image tropes in the movies this week, particularly in the venetian blind effect. Everything is shadow. So intense. I tried to explore Delia’s voice a bit, and I found many videos going into the various dialects and idioms of different regions of Louisiana. Hopefully I can hone in on her more in the coming weeks. Next week is audio, after all, and that’s what she’s about.
