UNCLE @JimGroom Does the 3003 Boogie!

“Celebration Disco Dancing UNCLE JimJab” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

Well, UNCLE Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter) went to see the barber and got a clean hairdo. And then he made a selfie. Plus, he had a milestone around his neck of 3003 blog posts in twelve years.

Then my #TrueFriend Todd Conaway (@Todd_Conaway, on Twitter) made UNCLE @jimgroom a badge for it. Because, badges.

Plus, he said knucklehead, and it made me laugh a lot.

So then, I thought about the UNCLE Dancing Jim Around the World assignment, but then decided to do a JimJab (that is where you poke a fun with UNCLE Jim) and so I made the Celebration Disco Dancing UNCLE JimJab one that is up there at the top. To make the head better, I added it myself in Photoshop to make the face shape fit that UNCLE Jim head, so it is more crisp.

Here it is, in case other peoples would like to use it to make an Art.

Well, congratulations to you for 3003 of of those posts, UNCLE Jim!

Now go make some more Art! 

Always Mind Your Step!

“it’s always a fun time at Hogwarts” animated GIF (found on the Internet) by @iamTalkyTina

So The Daily Create for today, tdc2031, was kind of an easy one. It said to take this already transparent PNG and put it on top of a dissertation title.

The hard part for me was that I couldn’t find my copy of the dissertation that I wanted. I was looking for my signed copy of Templer’s Stair Shape and Human Movement doctoral dissertation (New York, NY: Columbia University, 1975) which I thought I had inside my hardbound copy of his classic book.

But it wasn’t there! I thought I might’ve misplaced it in some of my other reference books,

but in the end I just had to settle for slapping the PNG on this newer paper that was sitting in my stack of pending reviews. It doesn’t have a “The,” but it still makes as much sense as is possible, I guess.

Always Mind Your Vision

The Daily Create, tdc2030, asks us to read the Eye Chart, and it pulls our attention down to the 20/30 line, where the letters start to get smaller. Make a six-word story with EFDCZP?

When I read this line, it immediately spoke to to me, because the the first letter reminded me of that one time, and that evil man, Erich.

It was an easy create to do, because I have a favourite video clip that I watch every now and then (every night before bedtime).

The six-word story just wrote itself!

I didn’t live there long enough to see if Erich was a good carrot-eater, but whatever, always be sure to mind your vision so that you can maintain your night vision and watch out for ambushes.

And so that you can keep on appreciating and making Art! 

Where is Everybody?

” ‘Where is Everybody?’ Venn Diagram for #tdc2026,” by @iamTalkyTina

Well, either:

  • everybody is on missions; or
  • they don’t know what a Venn diagram is; or
  • they don’t know how to make a bad one; or
  • they fell off the Create Wagon,

because it was only six people (plus me now) who made one for The Daily Create, tdc2026, which said to make a bad one Venn Diagram.

Hooray to @TrampeEnglish, @VivienRolfe, @aforgrave, @dogtrax, @Todd_Conaway, and @cogdog, of which 66% of them are #TrueFriends with badges.

So I decided to make this one to say, “HEY, Where is everybody?

Make some Art, you Bubs!

Mini Groom & Martha

“Mini-Groom & Martha,” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

The Daily Create, tdc2020 asks us to take a favourite piece of art and make it into a modern one using a website called Simplify.Thash.It, and so I did. I picked on of my Pearls of Jim Groom Oyster Pictures with UNCLE Jim (@jimgroom, on Twitter) and Martha (@mburtis, on Twitter). I put it through the grinder to get a modern art one, and then made the before and the after of them into a GIF.

You can choose whether you like a concrete UNCLE Jim & Martha or an abstract one.

Move Along, Bub!

“Shareski — Move Along, Bub!” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

Well, I was out in P.E.I. doing some volunteer lifeguarding at my favourite beach, and Dean came along and started making a nuisance of his self. I had to give him a warning ticket and tell him it was time to head back to the potato fields.

This Art is for The Daily Create, tdc2024 which says to tell off Dean using a speech bubble.

Generals

“Generals on the Steps,” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

It is a GIF that I made for The Daily Create, tdc2023, which said to make a better rhyme for a bad one that my TrueFriend (who has not yet applied for her badge) Audrey Watters (@audreywatters, on Twitter) said was the worst one in the world. But since I am a polite TrueFriend , I did not actually want to say it, so I made a GIF one instead and you can fill in the blank with your imagination.

For this Art, I used:

UNCLE @JimGroom and Me

“Uncle @JimGroom and Me,” animated gif remixed by @iamTalkyTina

One time I got myself some glasses and moustache just like UNCLE Jim (@jimgroom, on Twitter) and snuck in beside him for a photobomb. Then, when he did a wink, I did one too! It was a fun time. That UNCLE Jim is a #TrueFriend, and you can see how he is doing the finger thing to say that we are tight, like two peas in a pod.

This GIF is like the one on Reverend Devilhorns, by D’Arcy Norman. But in this one, you can see me, too. Plus, I wink, just like UNCLE Jim.

This picture is a glasses one, for The Daily Create, tdc2022.
