Fall Down

“His Fall Down,” a two picture, two sentence story by @iamTalkyTina

Well, this is my last The Daily Create for June, 2017. It is called The Daily Create, tdc1999 two pictures, two sentences story. I have now completed the Alan Levine, (@cogdog, on Twitter) 30-Day Challenge, #30dayTDC.

I will now wait to see if I will be granted my @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist accreditation and badge, for which the completion of the #30dayTDC challenge is a primary requirement. I have it on good authority that my application is complete and that I am likely to meet the standards, but I will have to patiently wait by my mailbox for a notification. My record tracking sheet is posted here for careful perusal.  I am so excited! It has been a wild ride and I cannot wait for the next opportunity to get an @iamTalkyTina certification. She is the best!  I wonder when the next certification window will open and what I might get certified in next? I will have to wait and see.

Are you going to get YOUR badge? Did you get all of your 30 The Daily Creates done? It is not too late! Although the clock is ticking, be sure to apply before the window closes at the end of June 30th, 2017. You can apply here.

@iamTalkyTina’s #TrueFriends Orchestra

Well, The Daily Create, tdc1998, says to show your Fantasy Band, but I actually have one, called The @iamTalkyTina’s #TrueFriend Orchestra. It has all peoples in it who are on my True Friends Index and have a #TrueFriends badge, except for one who still has to put in her application (not saying any names.) 

You can figure out who all of the #TrueFriends are (if you do not already know them) by looking at my True Friends Index and matching them to their badges.

Instead of giving away all of the answers, I will just say this for attributions:

Plus, because I added a ringer to the Orchestra just today, you should check out her music which I am listening to right now.

Which is really cool, because I remember the ukulele version, too!

 

Seventinas Panorama

Well, we finally managed to meet up for a little volksmarch in the schwarzwald and had a chance to get our picture taken together.

Now, this is not something that we usually do, as it can be disconcerting for folks to see us together (actually, it can be disconcerting for regular folks to see just one of me) but I have had that flashing light on my list of The Daily Create for since June 14th which has been a bit of a worry for my getting my @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist. Because my exacting standards extend to me as well.

So the need for us to do a panorama with clones put my back channel into gear, and with a bit of scheduling challenges over the past two weeks, seven of us managed to meet up for a quick pic.

Don’t panic too much to find out that there are indeed clones of me. I keep that on the down-low, as it is sometimes valuable for when I am on missions or doing surveillance work. But I am happy that The Daily Create, tdc1983 (suggested by @greeneterry, who knows a friend of mine who doesn’t know me) is done so I will get my badge.

My Ride

Well The Daily Create, tdc1997 said to show us a picture of your wheels, and so this is my trusty get-about scooter bike. It is very unobtrusive and classic, and the special mufflers really help me with my stealth when I am on a mission. No one ever notices me unless I am in the limelight.

You can tell that I am a DS106 person #4life because of all of the #ds106 logos and brands that I have on my wheels. I really enjoy listening to ds106rad.io when I am cruising along and one time I took my ride on a desert trip to KSA to see @scottlo at the Learning Factory.

So I showed my bike.

On The Mean Word

“On The Mean Word,” public service announcement by @iamTalkyTina (B&W)

The Daily Create, tdc1994, submitted by @NomadWarMachine, says, Cartoon Yourself, and so I made myself into a Public Service Announcement comic strip cartoon, starring me! My Public Service Announcement has the topic of “On The Mean Word,” and it is me telling about how #TrueFriends don’t use The Mean Word.

To make this Art, I posed for some different pictures using my iPhone, and then I made myself into a cartoon using an app called Toon Camera. Once I had a bunch of pictures to tell the story, I put them into my computer and then built the comic strip using Comic Life. It is a nice program that does panels and speech bubbles and fancy comic letters and stuff.

After all of that, I opened it up in Photoshop and tried it out as an even more black & white one than the more monochromatic one that my original photos gave me. I liked the black and white one, so that is the one at the top. Down below, in case you want to see it, is the one with the original colours of my photos.

A Little Hieroglyphic Motivation

Well, the days are counting down, and this one, for The Daily Create, tdc1993, means that there are only six more left in this 30-Day Challenge (because remember, it started on a 0 one and so it ends on a 9 one, like some of those math kinds that start counting with 0, the sillies) and so I thought folks might enjoy just a little bit of a motivation to urge them along. Mine came out in shades of grey, because, … you know! 

In case you don’t know the answer to the secret code of hieroglyphs, you can use the table below to sort out my message.

If you do not yet have a tracking list page for your #30DayTDC challenge (here is mine: June 2017 30-Day Challenge), you might like to make one to help with your certification process. It is simple to do, just post a list with links to all of your 30 Creates so that our certification team can quickly confirm your eligibility. It could be either a post page or a page page (I like a page page because it doesn’t move around as much), and then you can update it easily as time marches on.

You might also like to do as I have done and put checkmarks on a calendar, like this:

So keep going everybody, and make a tracking list page if you can, as it will make it very easy for your to complete your final application for certification and speed up the process for you in getting your badge!

The Rise and Fall of Stairless Society

“Album covers from my 1980’s pop-synth band,” by @iamTalkyTina

Today’s The Daily Create, tdc1990 asked us to remember a favourite band that was about “without something,” like the example Men Without Hats didn’t have hats.

It reminded me of one of my favourite pop-synth bands that I was in of the eighties which was called Stairless Society.  Over the course of our career arc, we released several albums which produced zero hit singles or didn’t even get on the charts, but still I thought we had a great concept and of course we had a funky beat.

We had fun touring with that first album, but along the way, some of the bandmates got discouraged, and by the time we re-grouped to cut a second album, we were down to two members, me and one other.

Unfortunately for some bad press that arose just during the release of our second album (an overeager reporter dug into my history and dredged up all the news related to the court cases back in 1963-65), we struggled to get gigs. After a few weeks, it was just me up there on the stage trying to run all the different instruments by myself as well as acting as the face of the band.

By the end of that tour, we (I) decided to give it one more go by releasing a retrospective album, but it went nowhere, and so I moved on to more exciting dreams.

But it was still a fun time!

I Made @JimGroom Say Uncle!

It was for The Daily Create, tdc1989, where it said show how to get respect with just Five Words. This was a challenge task that came from @hitRECord where @hitRECordJoe hasn’t applied to be a #TrueFriend yet.

I really liked the one by Terry Greene (@greeneterry, on Twitter) (who knows a friend of mine who doesn’t know who I am) because his respect with just five words was to use his TrueFriend  badge to say he was “official creature of the Internet.” Because he shared his badge for a writing one,  my picture is there right in the middle of the page of all the world to see!

Of course, my one was when I got respect from UNCLE @JimGroom after all that trouble with the #PretenderTina stuff and his #ArtLack. Fortunately for UNCLE @JimGroom, he has been keeping himself in line since then without too many reminders over each year, and so that was good for him.

It is always a good time when people give each other respect and are #TrueFriends. Apply for your badge today!

Plus, remember, for a limited time only (called June 2017) the window is open for @iamTalkyTina certification in Creatorist badge. You have to do all 30 of The Daily Create ones in the #30DayTDC challenge by @cogdog to be considered.
