Yellow Moons, Orange Stars & Red Suns, Imagine.

The image map was a different project, the technical aspect i could wrap my head around, that made sense. I can understand code and imputing it (thanks to dynamic drive) where to put it so that i could get a pop up roll over on my html page. It was when it came to the creating writing part where i could see i had some trouble. Basic idea present two pictures alter them and give an opposition outlook from a to b. But what do i talk about? That was the real task for me, cause i had no where to go, often people find it harder to complete tasks with less structures and rule than with it, and in this project i was one of them. To be honest i don’t even know what i wrote about, and i guess my mark will reflect that. That’s where i wish we had a little structure if you had asked us to right about shoes, or socks or flip flops ( i don’t know why i’m on about feet?)

cause i kind of lost the point of how portray that creativity, literally and as cliche as it sounds i was at a lose for words. I think i ended up doing some sort of rhyme rap but at the end of it i wasn’t as confident of satisfied with it like i was my Google map. In terms of creative writing id love to tackle this project again with any random topic as a source for inspiration to write about. In terms of the code and the roll-over pop ups i feel that this is something i could use again in other projects.

Perhaps given the topic ‘Eclipse’ would of been the better sell… for this sun and moon theme, but i like ‘Money’ and maybe i’m not the most in depth fan of Pink Floyd but i know what i like and i like this… hopefully you will too.

I just re-listened to ‘Eclipse’ its pretty fuckin’ good, but all these albums are worth their waiting in good, green or whatever substance material you feed your vein’s or vanity.

Maybe it would make more sense to give you a song like ‘Day ‘n’ Nite’(Nightmare)… With the whole play on words, puns and cliches but thats lazy writing isn’t it.

Plus when an album earns you Best Album of 2009, its hard to do wrong. Here is a personal favourite off the album produced by Kanye West…..

Well after lookin’ at the track listings ‘Bad Sun’ seems like the right connection…. wrong I became a fan of The Bravery when they fist dropped the single ‘An Honest Mistake’ after that is was all up hill.

This though ‘The Sun and the Moon’ might just be my favourite album of theirs with great songs like ‘The Ocean’, ‘Time Won’t Let Me Go’ and ‘Bad Sun’… it doesn’t get better than this one….

(extra sun).. 2 good for 2 many reasons

Website, Woes, Moans and Swears

Website Woes 

As per usual when launching a website your bound to have more problems to work out before its as smooth as you want it to be. At first just choosing a topic seems to be an issue but that quickly was remedied. I chose animal testing for two main reasons: 

1) I’m a Michael Vick fan and i thought he got the raw end of the stick where P.E.T.A was concerned. Yes he did wrong, it was unthinkable to treat animals this way. But were talking about a southern culture that embraces this as a sport wrong or not its true. And its not so much the crime, he did wrong i can see that, but i don’t for a second believe that punishment suited the crime, drug dealers have gotten less jail time than Vick, but i digress. At least dude got some practice, maybe worked on his Longest Yard ? (burt reynolds) it beginsssss 

2) this site was going to be(and eventually with the right re-tooling) was going to be the jump off platform for my “M. is Monkey” comic, having a propaganda site dedicated on the progression of animal testing, would help lead into this poor monkey getting tested on …. (look for the M. post) 

content
Brief Overview: 

All the content was original and was tongue in cheek about the importance of animal testing in the community. I went as far as to have Mr.T as a spokesperson for the organization. I think adding Mr. T gave the right amount of humour i wanted to the project, especially when I had him saying “I pity the fool who doesn’t endorse animal testing!”  Not following in the steps of P.E.T.A & Stop Animal Tests, I am dedicating my website to the fight FOR animal testing. 

“Who are we not to test our animals.” 

Using P.E.T.A as a jump off point my website is designed to encourage those to want animal testings. S.E.T.A (Standardized Examination Tests on Animals) Focusing on standardized testing the pages are divided by animals. 

  • Homepage
  • Rodents (Rats, Mice)
  • Household (Rabbits, Cats, Dogs)
  • Cattle (Cows, Sheep, Chickens)

Urging the public to want to test our animals more with Literacy Tests, Multiple Choice and Essay Questions. There will be “government” issued sample questions, and the new S.E.T.A issued scantron. 

The Extra tabs will be 

  • Advertising
  • Links
  • Social Network (link It)
  • Merchandise
  • F.A.Q

Each page will include an information on why set animal should be tested regularly. 

loading of images
again at the beginning I was having problems uploading gif’s but after some trial and error, I managed to get the images the size and placing I wanted. Then i was having trouble loading the html’s onto filezilla, and when opened nothing would load into the browsers… yea that problem never really got fixed. 

linking
I spent more time linking other pieces to the website to help enhance the message of whatever page it was on. I feel that went over the best, as it was a comical contrasted website at least that was the hope, so anyplace i could stick in a joke or a link to a funny picture, i was all about it. 

swearing
i said fcuk, siht, dman, during this process oh sorry for the typos fuck shit damn. swearing usually only happens when things are going wrong, lucky for me that happened a few times on this project. 

Overall
i thought this project was fun but time consuming when it came down to imputing the different code and transferring pictures to the website. I spent a majority of time using photoshop and dreamweaver cohesively to get the website up. Again the worst problems happen after the project was completed with uploading, and reloading and neverloading.
