DS106 Assignment: Album Cover

February 2, 2012 1 comment

I’ve waited to do this assignment for a couple of days. It was because of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) that prevent internet users from accessing to webpage such as Wikipedia, and DS106 Assignment banks. And this assignment just happens to require to use Wikipedia, now it’s up and going, so here we go.

This second DS106 assignment requires using three different webpages. Take each part of the webpage and put them together in a certain way, which would make an original album cover. For more details I posted the link on the bottom of this page.

NOTE: I altered a part of assignment direction where it asks us to upload a random photo from a flicker. Well there’s a problem. Most of the picture, if not all of the pictures are protected by the users, so I had to find a different way of uploading random photos. And I found one webpage that would work for this assignment.

So here is my direction for a way to choose a photo for an album cover.

1) Visit


2) There are 12 photos on webpage. Make top left photo as #1, top right photo as #4, bottom left as #9, bottom right as #12. These numbers are your birth month.

3) Your birth month will be your album cover photo. (ex, If your birth month is August, then the photo you will be using is middle row 4th photo.)(ex, If it’s December, then your photo would be bottom row 2nd photo.)

And one more thing: Some pbase pictures are protected by the users, so if you encounter that problem, click on “GIVE ME MORE” on top right corner on webpage, which will generate another set 12 photos. Keep doing that until you get a unrestricted photo or the ones you like.

Name of the band: John Bradford Fisher

John Bradford Fisher is an American plastic surgeon, who pioneered fat removal technique, as most of you know liposuction.

Album Title: All general statements are false

The quote is written by unknown author, to me he’s talking nonsense, but it also has deeper meaning that can mean anything to anyone.

The album cover is as you can see, knives. It’s a perfect album cover because name of band John Fisher is a plastic surgeon, which requires to use scalpel, and album cover is knives. Album title “All genereral statements are false” sounds threatening to me. It sounds like “all general statements are false therefore, I will cut you with knives.”

It was a pain assignment hard to get around with photos, but I’ve done it. It turned out good and that’s all that matters. Hope you enjoy!



DS 106 Assignment, Troll Quote

January 16, 2012 3 comments

Here we go with my first post of DS 106 Assignment, Troll Quote. It was actually difficult for me use the Photoshop or Gimps. Took me an hour to sort of figure out how to use them. I never figured it out, so I used Paint for processing the photo. It got job done. Hope you enjoy.

The assignment topic is computer related. To describe the assignment posted above, the person who is on the picture is Bill Gates, which is founder of Microsoft. Quoted, “And one more thing.” is said by Steve Jobs which is another computer techie man founder of Apple. Lastly, crossed out Steve Jobs, and is replaced by Michael Dell, which is founder of Dell computers. I crossed Steve Jobs because I was not able to erase the word “Steve Jobs” on Paint program.

One of reasons I chose this assignment was that the idea for this assignment came to my mind very quick that have three perfect candidate for Troll Quote. Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Micheal Dell. After all, this class is related to computers and I think almost everyone knows who those three people are except for Michael Dell, but people can sort of find out by his last name Dell.

Well it was a difficult assignment for me to perform photoshop, but I need to get used to it, and once I get used to manipulating pictures, I’m unstoppable.
