  1. Hey Justin,
    Ok, I think that this might be my favorite storybook so far. I think it is definitely an interesting take on telling the different stories. What I enjoyed was a that in the Intro level we got to find out about what the stories were going to be. When I saw it was in the style of Mario I was completely excited because it brought me back to my childhood. I also liked how short and to the point the intro was. You let us know right off the back how this is all going to play out which is nice. What I am most curious about is what are the three other stories going to be about. I feel that you have opened a can of worms and do just about anything you like. I am really interested in seeing where you take this storybook and I definitely will be back to read more.

  2. Hi Justin!
    I love this idea! I think you are doing a really great job of weaving details from Super Mario Brothers into the story of the Ramayana. It was so clever that the brothers hunt for golden coins instead of a golden deer. I also thought it was funny that Ravana disguised himself as a turtle. Your introduction does a really good job setting up a plot of saving Sita. I am really intruiged as to what other stories you are planning to incorporate into your Storybook. I think what you have looks really great but I almost feel like I should be listening to the Super Mario Brothers theme music as I read your Intro. That could be something really cool to add onto the page to further imerse your reader into this Ramayana-Super Mario hybrid world. I can't wait to see how your Storybook will look in future weeks!

  3. I love how this website is setup. I clicked a link and thought I was about to play a old school Mario game. Nice touch on the background, you piqued my interest, so I did not want to leave immediately! Jumping into the story, I like how you introduced us into the Mario world. I mean, who doesn’t like a great “Goomba”! I know from experience not everybody knows what a they are (in name), so might I recommend a nice picture?
    I never really drew parallels between Mario’s story and the Ramayana, so I’m quite entertained that you brought to our attention, while simultaneously making it fun along the way. Maybe you could incorporate what happens when Mario acquires two mushrooms: where he becomes a fireball slinging plumber, somewhat similar to when Rama whips out his bows and slays demons by the hundreds. Thanks for sharing your rendition of the story!

Introduction to a Robotics Nerd: Justin

Hi everyone! My name is Justin Kleiber, and I am a senior in Computer Engineering. My passion is robotics, which is the main reason I ended up choosing my major. At OU, I am the president of Sooner Competitive Robotics, which is one of the engineering college's competition teams (hit me up if you want to join!). I also do research on campus, where I mainly work on making a quadcopter fly around without a pilot controlling it. I help a group of high school students in OKC build and program a robot for the FIRST robotics competition, a worldwide high school robotics program. I love robotics, and as such, robots tend to surround my life.

Additionally, I am really competitive and love sports. I've gone to every home OU football game in the four years I have been here, as well as to the Rose Bowl, the Peach Bowl, and two Red River Shootout games. Growing up, I was a huge Virginia Tech fan because my parents went there - the l…

Week 3 Story: The Yes Men of the Ramayana

The Yes Men of the Ramayana
Brahma was experimenting with ways to create different worlds, trying to improve off of his first work, when he noticed a rakshasa praying to him on a mountainside, with the traditional dreadlocks of an ascetic. Brahma was pleased by the effort and sacrifice of the demon, and promised to give him a boon. Brahma loved giving gifts to his creation, like a proud father giving gifts to his children. So Brahma made the demon invincible to weapons of men, and thus the demon was able to go ravage an entire city on his own. Brahma did not mind the matter at all, because this rakshasa had shown dedication to him for a while, and he could do nothing to stop the demon from destroying a town - a god never goes back on his word.

In the time when the demon was ransacking various cities, there was a prince. This prince was very special, and according to some, the greatest prince of all. One day the prince was exiled because his father's third wife did not like him a…

Week 2 Story: The Oppressed

The Oppressed Ten years ago, a dictator rose to power in a small, poverty stricken nation after a long civil war. The nation was torn, shops closed, infrastructure crumbled, and only the wealthy and strong had access to the already small rations of food and water the country could produce. To the citizens, it seemed like the rest of the world had forgotten about them, and low on food, many wondered if they would be able to survive much longer in their current situation. However, the nation was under many sanctions and the dictator did not allow anyone to emigrate - the oligarchs could not live their lavish lifestyle without the working class.

It was common in those days to look for a way out - no foreign aid or the alliance of nations seemed to help, and sometimes even scoffed at the plight of the oppressed people in this nation. However, no way was forthcoming until one day in June, during a big drought, a man named Cane drove through the capital city advertising his service to smug…
