Alright, ds106 community.  Just wanted to give a formal announcement that the Mafia will be shutting its doors as of this week.  It’s been a great semester and a good time working with and getting to know everyone.  At least, everyone’s internet personalities.  Thanks for everything and good luck to all! – CWalk aka… Read more »


Closing Time…

The case of “findNoirCat” has finally come to a close.  It came to a screeching halt when I had the realization that we had never looked in the one place no one though she would be… Jump on our website for the latest information and to see  how the case shakes out! LINK BELOW Welcome to… Read more »



The Mafia has spotted the cunning NoirCat in downtown Fredericksburg earlier this week.  I was inside Benny’s pizza getting one of those Chicken Bacon Ranch slices (actually I got 2, because I’m a boss) and one of my fellow members snapped a pic of what appeared to be NoirCat strolling on the other side of… Read more »


Without deviation, progress is not possible…

This week, I deviated from updating on the progress of the case we have been working on this week.  Clients wanted updates by Wednesday of this past week, but I have been so busy trying to tie up lose ends and following leads that it just wasn’t possible.           Needless to… Read more »


Get with the program

  Just registered my agency with the head agents on the Noir106 site.  You should probably do this ASAP if your agency has any hope of keeping up. Just a heads up, or maybe a warning.  Take it how you please. – Vinny D


Only a fool would skip work in April

What a pinteresting thought..

Every now and then I hop on Pinterest to get some ideas.  Ideas for cars, gifts for the mob, family vacations, new toys and also the private jet I’m looking into.  You can check out my board below! Vinny D is everywhere, you can even find him on Pinterest!  He made his own board… Read more »


The economy’s taking a dump

In honor of our booming economy here in Brooklyn, I thought I would grace everyone with an updated copy of my resume.  Anyone and everyone with half a brain would hire me to work at their place.  I’ve done it all and can do it all! Devilish good looks and excellent customer service? Psh… might… Read more »


What the hell is a Rhinoroo?

Saw this guy when I was on a hunting trip with my Mafia brothers in South Africa last summer.  The guide said it was called a Rhinoroo?  Don’t ask me, I have no idea what that is and I don’t want to know how it happened… I couldn’t eat for the rest of the trip… Read more »

    Over and done.. With week 8

    Week 8, it’s a wrap!  Interesting to get back into the DS106 world like we had been the first 5-6 weeks, prior to the radio show project.  My mind had to re-set to the steady work it takes to really be successful in the course.  Either way, I enjoyed the work this week and felt… Read more »

    Why speed date when you have all you need right here?

    For one of my character assignments, I chose the Create Your Own Character assignment.  Although, instead of creating your own character as the assignment suggests, I chose to elaborate a bit on my main man Vinny D! In order to meet some of this weeks criteria, I chose to collaborate Vinny’s story with that of “Johnny Corner… Read more »

    My ds106 Heroes

    1.  One of my favorite assignments by a fellow student is that of Landon Epperly.  Landon took a daily create and essentially did his own thing with it, but man did he deliver.  The task was to focus on Ruin photography, and Landon took four pictures that he found and create one masterpiece in photoshop….

    A little ds106 radio

    I chose to listen to the infamous ds106radio on Monday night, mainly because that’s when the greatest radio show in the history of radio shows was scheduled to play, “Noir We There Yet”, but also, to tweet along and give a review for the show “House of Noir”. Overall, I liked the show and enjoyed… Read more »

    Round 2 of NoirWeThereYet

    Noir We There Yet has got to be the most awesome group ever.  By far, the best group that I have worked with thus far in my college career.  Much like the posts/comments of other students, group work is typically a hassle.  Many schedule conflicts arise, members slack off and some just submit sub-par work….

    Feeling Creative

    Unfortunately, this week, I was only able to complete two daily creates.   The first one I completed was my Emoji Story from Wednesday.  For this daily create, we were prompted to tell a story using a random set of Emjoi’s generated through the emjoinate app.  I actually had to refresh my story like five or six times… Read more »
