Arggh, since my hippie hosted main blog is down for the count tonight, I shall hang my blog post here. In prepping the work for next week’s ds106 section on Remix, I needed/wanted to do one of the assignments we just added- Recycle the Media in which we are charged with making a mashup from the content that students shared a few weeks back- their left over, unused bits of media from previous assignments. We loaded over 150 of these to a site on to make available for download and mixing up.

So without much more ado, my story about a cat:

This story was driven by the primarily the “flames and woman’s scream sound” which lef me to the grill one, and from there, well. this.

So we have a cat who is missing. Dad just tries to say “it’s ok” (he does not care about the cat). The little kid passes the blame. And now there is meat sizzling on the barbecue (insert wilhlem scream). What about that cat? Where is it?

The media used included:

I replicated the short “Ahh” sounds 3 times by option click dragging the audio track. I also copied and pasted 3 more times the short Shining Clip. From there it was a matter of overlaying some titles

This was a second edit, I added a bit more because the first one was a tad morbid.
