Jackson Ferrell: next Homework assignment

April 29, 2010

Because I missed the deadline for this week’s homework assignment, I am gonna go ahead and straight-up assign myself some homework right now.  Here is what I need to do:

  • create a comic for Friday to post up on the Borderline Boy site (I am thinking another “Purchasing Rockstar” strip) : due tomorrow, 4/30, before 10 PM
  • contact the guy from Ace Hoyle about his offer to pay for a review of his comic/site : due Sunday before 10 PM
  • create a comic for next Friday to post up on the Borderline Boy site : due Sunday before 10 PM

Now I have homework!  It is up to Gryfft whether it is worth any points.

Homework Update.

April 28, 2010

Just figured I should put everybody’s tallies up. Here’s the leaderboard:

1. Zel: 4 (FOUR).

1. Sebatinsky: 4 (FOUR)

3. Tyler 2 (TWO)

And by the way, Zel revised her Latin on the songs she’s translated, completing her homework prior to Wednesday bagging her 2 (TWO)  points and for now tying her for  the lead with Sebatinsky. He may pull into first as he comes ’round the bend with mad discipline. Zel’s translation follows the jump.

Sunday’s Homework Assignments.

April 18, 2010

Air Theremin’s first round of Homework Assignments went reasonably well, even if they came out somewhat unstructured and a little rough. As a matter of fact, that’s a GREAT thing: the first round of homework is about feeling out what you’re interested in doing, and then exploring the mindspace you’ll inhabit once you commit to it.

I mean Tyler. He finished the control box for his rocket!

I award Tyler two points for the completion of this portion of his rocketry project.

55aday’s own Zel Kuroi has decided to participate in Homework Assignments as well. She has performed the following translation, (of this song)  for which I award her two points.

Homework.

April 11, 2010

There’s a brand new game in town, and it starts with homework assignments.

Let me explain. I want to do everything I can to better my life and the lives of those around me. Which means I need to start volunteering, altering my lifestyle, and encouraging those around me to engage in the most constructive and incredible things they’re capable of.

I got me some really intelligent and talented and brilliant friends, so I see this turning out well. If they apply themselves.

To keep myself applied and keep my friends applied too, I’m assigning homework assignments. My homework assignment for tonight is to do my homework, run 3 miles, and do some legal research. I’ll go ahead and mention a few homework assignments here:

I’m asking Ari to write me a thousand words by midnight Tuesday morning. It doesn’t matter what they are.

I’m asking Sebatinsky to write a thousand words on new atheism as a postmodern construct. (Or something.)

I’m asking my friend Tyler to do research to build a rocket to send into space.

I’m asking Bill to swim a hundred laps, help his little brother get a computer, and do research on ultralight aircraft.

Homework projects have three requirements: They must be imaginative, they must require at least a baseline level of effort, and they must be open-ended. You may change your homework assignment at any time, but in time hopefully you will home in on something that you’re happy spending most of your time doing.

This round of homework is due Tuesday the 13th at midnight (12:00AM.) If you want to talk to me about a homework assignment, catch  me at neo.homsar at gmail dot com. Fulfilling this round of homework will net you 1 (one) point. Completing your homework before midnight Monday the 12th will net you TWO (2) points.

Feel free to sound off in the comments about your homework assignment if you  have one already. AT’ers, please AT your homework when it’s done!

Go go go go go, gentlemen.

EDIT: The wording of this is apparently confusing. The deadline has now been extended to 11:59 PM April 13. Homework completed before 11:59 PM my time tonight will receive two points. Homework completed after that and before tomorrow night’s deadline will receive one point.

Make shit happen.
