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

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 »

    A #NoirWeThereYet Poster

    This ” #NoirWeThereYet” is just a tag that we (our radio show group) have been using to keep up with each other on Twitter regarding our radio show.  It is a way for us to stay public so that the professors may get involved if need be and is easier than DM’ing each other; as… Read more »


    Bumpers Galore

    A few radio bumpers do the ears some good.  As long as the bumpers themselves, are good….. In honor of our upcoming radio show, I wanted to create a radio bumper for the show.  Below are two I’ve created that we intend to use for our show. This first bumper is to be used either… Read more »

    It’s An Alien Invasion!

    It’s a dark, stormy night and you’re home alone.  On any other night the sound of the rain would have you sleeping like a baby, but not tonight.  Something about tonight is different.  The thunder and rain are unusually loud on your old tin roof.  Your dog flinches at merely the sound of it.  Frightening,… Read more »

    It was a twitter kind of night

    One of our assignments for the week was to tune into another session of ds106radio and “tweet along”.  Getting up at 4am everyday, the last thing I want to do is stay up for some assignment; although I must say, I enjoyed both of the programs that were played last night. Red Wind Jack the… Read more »

This was just the beginning.  During the earlier part of this week,… Read more »


    It’s a Wrap Week Five

      Consider week 5 to be in the books.  Everyone deserves a high five.  Unfortunately, this was the best I could do. Maybe a thumbs up would be better!   Alright I’m done.   Anyways, week five has been fun.  Design week brought some new challenges that got me working hard and learning a lot… Read more »

  • Lion

    King of the Jungle

    If I could have one superpower, honestly I could think of many, but I would love to have the ability to change into any animal I want to and at any given time.  This was my daily create from 2/11/2015 of this week.  The prompt was that simple.  It’s a question we have all either asked ourselves… Read more »

    Razzle Ring

    For today’s daily create, the idea was to create jewelry from real food.  I happen to be eating some razzes at the time (which are awesome, and I haven’t had in a long time), so I found my old wedding band and some good ole Gorilla Glue.  At that point, I proceeded to go to… Read more »

    Cheech and Groom

    For my last design assignment, I wanted to do my part to help make Professor Groom famous.  The assignment I chose for this was called “Professor Groom Poster”.  The idea was to create a poster, as stated, to make Groom more famous than ever.  This poster should surely do that! Cheech and Chong’s “Up In Smoke”… Read more »

    Your new favorite background.

      For my next assignment, I chose the create your own DS106 background.  I checked out some other students’ post and watched the tutorial video to get some ideas, as well as some insight in how to better use GIMP to design my background.  The background image was an old rustic wood background that I… Read more »
