UMW's Own Jimmy Ford: Rap King

February 4th, 2011

20 year old sophomore, Jimmy Ford, is an up and coming rapper from Woodbridge, VA. He debuted in 2009, releasing a mixtape as a rap duo named Brofest with Dylan Fant aka DJ Fantastic. Fant mostly created and mixed the tracks while Ford did most of the rapping and almost all of the writing. The group’s identity of relaxing beach rap was solidified by the most popular song on the mixtape “Summertime Chillin'”. Brofest received little attention at first but in the spring of 2010 the two changed their group name to Vapor Skyy and the change resulted in more attention. In the summer of 2010 they released their first mixtape under their new alias named “The Chronicles Of Gnarnia”. The song “Another Dimension” off the mixtape was featured on the new music section of Brobible.com. Since the summer Ford has released 12 single demos and remixes on his youtube page. Ford’s most popular single is his remix of Wiz Khalifa’s popular song “Black And Yellow”. The song was uploaded on October 15th, 2010 and has since gotten 140,500+ views.

Pet Story

February 1st, 2011

This weekend i had a new pet for a couple hours. why only a couple hours? turns out a duck would much rather be in a pond with a bunch of other ducks than in a house with a bunch of 20 year old guys… oh well! here’s a picture of my roommate, sean, with the duck before he went back to the farm.

oh and by the way we named it Gordon Bombay Jr.

Assignment 3: Web 2.0 Thoughts

January 25th, 2011

Wow! we are living in a totally new age world. reading about web 2.0 was fascinating and really got me excited for this class (not like i wasn’t before!) and the future of the web in general. I found the article written by Brian Alexander and Alan Levine most intriguing and overall fun to read. i think they described it best in their introduction. the traditional story goes from point A to B to C. ya know, a beginning, middle and end. it’s like a formula that all stories follow. a basic guideline. but with todays technology and the rising popularity of blogging as well as other web-media and other forms of social networking via the internet, the game is changing. the “story” as we know it may become a thing of the past very soon. with blogging now stories can be left open-ended or finished by someone else or discussed amongst millions of people through the convenience of the internet. stories can now be a cumulation of many peoples ideas. the thought is exciting! but at the same time i think about when my mother or grandparents would read me and my sister a story from an actual book, then i picture myself as a grandparent reading my grandkids some blog-story on the internet off of a laptop or some other futuristic device that would be impossible for me to even imagine at this point in time and i feel like it kinda loses some of it’s warmth. but with the future comes change and i will do my best to embrace those changes with an open mind!
