My Order

May I Take Your Order?

Description of Assignment: “Using your best accent (whether it be Australian, British or southern, ect), pretend you are at McDondalds and order something off of their menu. Be picky! For example, a coke with no ice.”

The Story

One day me and my friends went to McDonald’s and we knew the person who was taking our order. He was one of our good friends so we wanted to mess with him. I wanted to be funny so I decided to be picky and use a Middle Eastern accent. He had a hard time keeping up so after I told him I was just joking and order normally. After he got off work I hung out with him and he told me how bad my accent was.

The Process, Narrated

I first planned out my order and decided to use a Middle Eastern accent. I made sure my order was very picky. For this assignment I used Audacity to record my McDonald’s order. Once I finished the recording I saved it as a audio recording so it would let me embed the recording into this post.

 

Guess this song!

Favorite Song (1 and 1/2 Stars)

Description of Assignment: “Take your favorite song. Remove the lyrics. Play only up to thirty seconds of the song. Listener must be able to guess.”

 

The Story

If you guess this song right you might think it’s a little to girly for me but its one my favorite songs still. The first time I heard this song was on the radio a three summers ago. I didn’t like it at first but I kept on hearing almost everyday on the radio. After a couple of times of hearing this song I starting remember the lyrics and I would sing along. My friends would make fun of me if they were in the car and I didn’t change the station when it came on the radio. I don’t really listen to this song that much anymore but I still like it when I hear it on the radio every now and then.

The Process, Narrated

For this assignment I first found the song without lyrics I wanted to do on Youtube. Next, I played the song and started to record it on audacity. I stopped recording once I got to thirty seconds worth of the song that I wanted. I cut out the beginning so the main part of the song was playing for the longest. I screenshot it on audacity so you could see what I’m talking about. Next I saved it and uploaded it onto Soundcloud. I change the title to Guess this song and added the appropriate tags.
