FranK Reaction (Extra Credit)

So I went to watch the pilot premiere of FranK this Sunday. First off, I would like to commend the quality of work done by both the theater and media departments of Emory. They made a very professional product that looked very professional. That being said, I found the show to look more like a […]

Reflection 2

So in trying to modify my page to how I truly wanted it, I ran into a lot of walls that the only work around was to pay. For example, I wanted to add background music, but that required a plugin, which required business model, which is a payed model. I changed my theme to […]

Isle of Dogs Discussion

This is an extra credit response to Isle of Dogs, shown last Sunday at a pre screening. First off, I really liked the movie.
