You are all awesome!

It was a real pleasure to watch your videos today. You all did a wonderful job! Thank you so much for your hard work.



Hello everyone!

I am bringing popcorn to class today that we can pop in the handy microwave in our classroom (unless anyone objects or we feel it will disturb the people in the office...)!  I have Butter Lovers, Light Butter, and Kettle Corn!

See you this afternoon,

List of those to thank

Hey guys!  I know we said we would do this, but I cannot remember what came of it...or if we posted it somewhere.  Anywho, here is a quick list I compiled (alphabetical by last name) of everyone I can think of (including Gerald McElvy-- tomorrow's interview).  Let me know if I am forgetting anyone.

  • Nandita Berry
  • Dorothy Caram
  • Kristin Deville
  • Elizabeth Ghrist
  • Bernie Kapner
  • Howard Lorch
  • Gerald McElvy
  • Demetrius Pearson
  • The Honorable Shearn Smith
  • Welcome Wilson
I know that there are some names that I am missing.  Also, what should we do about titles?  I think we should include 'The Honorable' in front of Shearn Smith's name...thoughts?  

Please comment with your additions!

Something I found fun

I discovered that Shasta III, aka The Lady, was also featured in some car commercials before she retired from mascot duties in 1977. I can't use this in my video, but I thought it was kind of fun to see this commercial. The time frame is correct, so I'm guessing this is The Lady starring with Farrah Fawcett.

converted video files

Hi All,

I've converted all the video files to mpeg and posted them to DropBox. Please let me know if you have any trouble accessing them or in using them for your project. I've saved all the original files that were in DropBox to my external hard drive so the uncompressed files are available also. If you want to bring me to flash drive we can transfer the whole works to it. I plan to also copy all the photos that Deanne has found.

Here are the logos:

 Be sure to start your video with; "UH Memories Presents" and the title of your video. You'll want to add a Creative Commons license at the very end of your video. There are several types to choose from. I suggest this one:

This license allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you."

But you can be more open accommodating if you would like. I don't suggest that you be more restrictive. Just my opinion, though. Take a look at all the licenses here. Sign up for your Creative Commons license before you finish your video and export it because you will want to add the logo to the end of the credits. 

If you need any help please let me know.

Links to shared folders

Okay, I've caught up with the photo requests and I think that's all I'll be able to do. I've managed to find something for just about everyone who had definite requests, so I like to think I've been a help. It's just I have a boat load of my own big projects with fast looming deadlines coming at me and I need to focus on them now.

If I understand the sharing sites info page correctly, the following links should take you directly to the folders I've created for you. Fingers crossed this works.

Aimee's folder

Joe's folder

Katie's folder

Mika's folder

Sandra's folder

Stephanie's folder

Joe's Theme

Hello everyone.

As I am sure all of you know already, I will be focusing on the theme of sports history at the University.  With the interview of Dr. Pearson, I think I am going to focus on those students he has personally mentored.  Since he came to the campus in the early 1980s and was here at the very beginning of Phi Slamma Jamma, I think I will wrap my interview around those early sports figures.  I think I will also take a few seconds or so when I ask him about the future of the University, I think I will focus on such sports figures as Kevin Kolb and Case Keenum.  I am not quite sure how I am going to do this yet, but I have a storyboard in my head.

As far as pictures go, I think I will look for older pictures of the University during the 1980s and some of the pictures of that 1983-86 basketball team in particular.  I will also need pictures of former quarterback Kevin Kolb and maybe also a pic of Case Keenum.  I might even show 5 to 10 second video clips of these guys if I can somehow work it in but I am still working that out in my head.

See all of you in a few hours.
