Week 8-Activity-Remix Culture

image

To complete this week’s activity of “Remix Culture”, I decided to use our class roster and use a certain word from each student’s activity post from last week. At first, I tried to take the first and last word from each post and rearrange the words to create a story. However, many people started off their blogs with “For”, so I decided to just use the last word. For other students who haven’t completed their activity post from last week, I used the last word from their latest post. Here is what happened:

1) fullest 2) effect 3) blog 4) time 5) hope 6) her 7) goals 8) it 9) frequently 10) corpse 11) mine 12) me 13) chance 14) activity 15) activity 16) environment 17) week 18) perfectly 19) grateful 20) them 21) corpse 22) photograph 23) seen 24) gone 25) want 26) series 27) power 28) leggings 29) activity 30) activity 31) work 32) warm 33) tell 34) this 35) unique 36) up 37) message 38) gallery 39) time 40) perfectly 41) mountain 42) out 43) endeavors 44) me 45) grave 46) gun 47) layers 48) death 49) world 50) year 51) together 52) it 53) this 54) support 55) enjoy 56) them 57) lives 58) meaning 59) enjoy 60) regrets 61) way 62) photography 63) out 64) peaceful 65) oriented 66) again 67) accident 68) school 69) away 70) departed 71) night 72) it 73) go 74) demise 75) me 76) pictures 77) fun 78) camera 79) down 80) did 81) time 82) out 83) common 84) cool 85) piece 86) better 87) pedestrian 88) them 89) corpse 90) project 91) image 92) die 93) pictures 94) life 95) overwhelmed 96) wanted 97) do 98) chills 99) it 100) why 101) good 102) sword 103) mistake 104) world 105) lives 106) thinking 107) happen 108) driving 109) stupid 110) up 111) endeavors 112) though 113) was 114) purity 115) it 116) car 117) be 118) don’t 119) way 120) am 121) great 122) manner 123) created 124) uncomfortable 125) itself 126) valuable 127) it 128) morgue 129) matter 130) it

I can’t believe there are 130 students in this class. I enjoyed going through this experience, even though it was tedious, because it gave me a chance to view everyone else’s blog posts for a bit and see the experiences they are having. It was cool getting to see all of the pictures of people’s fake deaths and reading the background of how it came together. After trying to play around with the words, it was hard to create a story out of it unless it talked about death and sadness. Most of the words that repeated were death, demise, out, chills, and departed. I don’t really like talking about death much because I’m a pretty happy person.

Since the story didn’t work, I decided to just reflect on the words I got. Seeing all of these words shows me that people are scared about the thought of their death and they want to achieve as much as they can in the time that they have on Earth. You need to enjoy your life without any regrets and always take some chances, otherwise you are not really living.
