More Harry Potter! :D

I realized halfway through making this that my last post dealt with Harry Potter but at that point I didn’t really care about that because Harry Potter is awesome. Did you know the trailer for the last installment came out yesterday? Yeah, I watched that while procrastinating. Later in the night while I was procrastinating even more on facebook I wondered what Harry Potter characters would do on facebook.

I see Ron Weasley as a huuuuuge procrastinator and so I made his facebook profile page with various statuses and posts regarding writing an essay that was due the next day. One of the  statuses of his is actually real. As in, I posted it as my status last night. Anyways here it is.

Things I like about it.

-Fred or George/Gred or Forge- I feel like Fred and George Weasley would take their joking to Facebook and would want to cause confusion to their friends by having that as their name.

-Cedric’s profile pic- looks like he wants to be Eminem. Not sure if people in the magical world know who eminem is but oh well. I’d like to think that those from the muggle families would poke fun at his profile pic.

 

Once again I used firebug to make this and it was quite easy. The thing that took the longest was changing the pictures on the left hand side because there were so many.

I’ll Just Put this Here

This is super dooper late. I talked with Jim Groom but I don’t think I expected it to be this late. Two jobs + Classes + Full Weekend of Rugby is not conducive to getting a lot of stuff done. I know I said I was going to do Edward Scissorhands Gmail but I thought Finding Nemo Facebook page would be more fun and more interesting. I ran into problems with the newsfeed refreshing and I am having trouble saving the HTML but I have the screengrab. It’s from Marlin’s point of view and at the beginning it’s mostly Dory in his newsfeed as she is really his only friend but then as the story (movie) goes on he meets more people.
I also included Ariel from Little Mermaid on there because she lives/d under the sea and is also a Disney character.

I also ran into trouble using the screen grab firefox app, it wouldn’t save or copy the page in a thing that could be opened in photoshop or paint so I had to do control + print screen a couple times to get the whole page.
And as for the last names… I made them up from the types of fish they are.
My favorite part of the facebook newsfeed is Bruce’s status about needing to start his Fish Are Friends Not Food program.

Movies on Facebook: Star Wars

I actually started this before class this evening so the Star Wars overload in class did not (entirely) influence this. Just motivated me to finish sooner. :) Good thing I don’t have class tomorrow.

Tell me have you ever googled “How to type out Chewbacca noises?” I have. It’s not very helpful actually..

This took a couple hours and I’m proud of how it turned out even though it’s a bit sloppier than the last movie facebook thing I did.

What I did was take a screenshot of my newsfeed and put in the “profile pics” and names and comments and stuff in photoshop.

Movies on Facebook: Fight Club

I mentioned in a previous post I had several ideas floating around in my head but did not have time to work one them. Well, finally this afternoon I was able to start and finish one of my projects.  This contains a Fight Club spoiler so if you haven’t seen it… sorry.

Basically this is from the point of view of Edward Norton’s character. He just became friends with Tyler Durden in real life and then seeks him out on facebook.

And by trying to friend him he discovers this. Would have made the movie shorter :)

To make this I took a screenshot of someone’s facebook page and then removed pretty much every personal information bit. The hardest part was trying to match up the font and font colors.  I tossed in some fun things, like the ad at the bottom right and the “you and Tyler” part.

Also, I don’t know why I left in the Spanglish part for what Tyler speaks… I just forgot about it. Whoops.
