This week on The Dark Times we explore the theme of “Noir.” Noir being described as darkness, shady villains, criminal, outlaws, gangs, and mysterious unknown. What I have learned is that Groom and Paul are obsessed with the theme noir and blogging as if it wasn’t so obvious during by their freshmen seminar “true crime” class (True Crime Blog)… but actually I learned that this class its going to be truly awesome!
Throughout this week in preparation for #ds106 we had to create different accounts on social media sites. Although some of the media required for this class was somewhat confusing to use I believe it will be really helpful when trying to express ourselves throughout this class. I watched a bit of examples of noir with my roommate, Abigail Dunn,
including The Dark Knight, Scooby Doo, Pretty Little Liars, Bugs Bunny, and The Courageous Cat all good examples of noir. It allowed us to better understand what “noir” really was, I realized that when I was younger I use to unknowingly watch noir (Scooby Doo) all the time for the mystery that was involved.
I really liked using flickr to post pictures although I haven’t gotten to mess with it too much.
I did have some trouble figuring out how to post on youtube and then find my video but I am sure that just takes some exploring to figure out as do some of the other sites we used (Soundcloud).
I am really looking forward to the rest of this class.
