Week 1: The beginning of The End

This week marks the beginning of the DS106’s, The End. I created a new twitter, soundcloud, and instagram, which can be found @dnguyenUMW. I had a slack channel for my FSEM, which I rarely used and I find that it will come to use with future classes. I already had a UMW domain prior to this course from a computer science class, so figuring out cPanel was not so difficult. What I found out about cPanel from this class is installation of add-ons such as WordPress, which is I found out to be very useful and cool! I haven’t made a YouTube video since I was probably 10 creating videos with my cousin and friends, which range from skits to video game content(If you really want to see it, email me: dnguyen@umw.edu and I’ll send a link). What I added to the bunker was Rick’s Portal Gun from Rick and Morty, I’m not sure what the rules are to what we can add, but the portal gun can take you to any place in the universe(s).

How I made my video

I used OBS (Open Broadcast Software) I usually used this program to stream me playing video games to Twitch.tv. Another thing about OBS is that it is completely free with no ADs!

Question of The Week

What is your own personal relationship with apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic fiction?

  • Are there particular stories (from books, TV, movies, etc.) that have resonated with you? Why?

SPOILER ALERT!! One particular scene that resonated with me was when Glenn from The Walking Dead was killed. He was one of the most loved characters and in the show, he has a pregnant wife and they were a power couple. On the first episode of season 7, unexpectedly Glenn is beaten to death with a bat wrapped with barbed wire. After that scene I felt like I could not continue with the show because he was my most favorite character from the show.

  • What genre of the apocalypse (zombie, alien invasion, plague, etc) seems particularly interesting to you? Why?

Zombie/Plague has always been an interest in me, even in my dreams! Here and there I would think about where I should go, who do I go with, and what should I do. I really enjoy watching zombie movies and shows because I think about if that could possibly happen and sometimes I have nightmares about it. The shows and movies just add this roller coaster of emotions that other genres can’t reproduce.
