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! 

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.

Follow My Drift

“Making Art from Stairs,” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

The Daily Create, tdc2010, asks us to start with one word and end with another by chasing a phrase.  Chose to start with the word Stair and have ended with Art. Plus, I made an Art out of it using The Noun Project.  Plus, it is a bonus GIF.

The Attributions of It

GIF While You Can!

“Make a GIF, Because LIFE” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina (click for a bigger view!)

Well, The Daily Create, tdc2008 by @ammienoot (@ammienoot, on Twitter) said to make an off-beat inspirational poster, so I searched in a Creative Commons Flickr for “Walking on the beach” (because lots of inspirational ones show a walking on the beach one), and I chose a very nice picture by Chris Ford, on Flickr that was CC BY-NC 2.0 so it is nice to use for a remix.

“Along the Way; United States, Oregon, Arch Cape Coast”

Then, because I decided that the words would be about the goodness of making a GIF, I made the man jumping up and down in one spot, and then I tried him moving sideways, and then I decided to make him just go in the footprints. Then the footprints made me think of the Monty Python foot.

So that is what makes it an off-beat one.

Todd Conaway Was Asking Where I Am

“Find @iamTalkyTina Challenge,” by @iamTalkyTina   (bigger)  (for those who are having trouble: even bigger)

Now, the little story behind this is that my #TrueFriend Todd (@Todd_Conaway, on Twitter) made a one of me, and while I was looking for me, I had the idea to make one back, and so later, after I had been making it for about several minutes, I found me in the one that he made, because I didn’t even see me in his the first time I looked before I had my own idea.

So it was a fun time.

Can you find me in the Todd one (below) and in the mine one (above)?

“Where’s Tina,” original one by @Todd_Conaway

That Will Learn Him

“Shouldn’t Have Said The Mean Word,” animated GIF by @iamTalkyTina

Well, I would never be one to spread around gossip, or create a little incident, but he really shouldn’t have said The Mean Word, and that’s all there is to it.

This is for The Daily Create, tdc1996, where we had to show what they were thinking as they were sitting there. Matt Chorley (@MattChorley, on Twitter)  said it was “Bring your child to work day.”
