How Modern Technology has Affected the Language of ROMANCE

“Damn that ginger is so short and sexy“:

Student, Brigid Slattery explores the ways people use modern technology to reach their loved ones.  She explores how couples utilize facebook (through statuses, pictures, and wall comments), ichat, texting, etc to stay connected.

I made the following slide show presentation it’s a little long but let me know what you think!


my ginger brother can rap!

Last night I somewhat finished my movie…and now I understand why Walter Murch has an editing room in his garage!  This project has been haunting me from the start.  Getting the footage was easy…but editing was by far the hardest part of any project I have ever encountered.  I found myself  editing at all hours of the day, and when I wasn’t editing…I was thinking about editing.  I would go in to make one little change and next thing I know it’s 3 hours later!

My movie is about my little brother Sean, 19, who is currently a student at The University of Vermont.  Sean has always been musically talented he learned how to play guitar in middle school, then moved on to teach himself how to slap the bass, keyboard, and drums.

Naturally, his musical talent led him into song writing.  When he was in highschool he met his best friend Andrew Kozak (a.k.a. Krayon Koz), which is how he got into the rap game.  They began writing songs together, coming up with their own rap lyrics, and battling each other.  Krayon Koz still works on his raps today, in fact his first album is due out soon.  Sean however moved to Vermont to attend school and  he has been laying low since the battles.  I made a video which tells the story of the rap battles, it is still a work in progress because I don’t love the flow of it yet.
