A Fatal Femme – Get the Message?

I found this wonderful video with a fatal femme in it on YouTube that I wanted to share with all my True Friends.

I think that in it you can see how the fatal femme is mysterious, with attraction and a smokey voice one where she is in a bar or nightclub with shadows and palm trees wearing a detective costume with fedora and gloves and making a drop. Plus bead curtains and diagonal lines like blinds and she uses her compact mirror smartphone to contact the other detective man who is also wearing a trenchcoat and hat with smoke. And it is all in black and white with suspense music, plus a secret contact voice on a payphone with code words. The Macguffin is a top secret deodorant cold war creme with special no-stick 3M  ingredients.

My Super True Friend Christina (@clhendricksbc, on Twitter) and I will be doing a special interview about the Fatal Femme and a guy called Simon de Beauvoir in #noir106, plus I will be playing a fatal femme called Daphne de Beauvoir in our #ds106radio play called “You’re Soaking your Fingers in It! Relax, it’s Gin!

Tune in this coming week to the #noir106 Radio shows on our favourite radio station, #ds106radio #4life!!



Again, It’s All About Friends!

“Tina True Friends Selfie,” by Talky Tina, on Flickr

Well, today was a very nice day for Friends.

Wonderful Music

It was so wonderful when I woke up this morning and heard that wonderful song “Look What Happened to Tina” that my wonderful True Friend Vivien Rolfe (@VivienRolfe, on Twitter) made for me. Plus, that dog, Spike (not on Twitter, I don’t think) was doing dog singing. But not that David (@dkernohan, on Twitter) this time he said. It was all Viv, he said. He was doing other stuff.

So in case you didn’t hear it, here is the wonderful song that Viv made for me. It is about me. And Art. And Friends. Plus, noir.

Wonderful Game!

Then, while I was listening to that song over and over again, and dancing, it was that David‘s (@dkernohan, on Twitter) time so shine.

So he had made a great game called 2048 Super MOOC Pioneers Edition which lets you put MOOC people together to make more MOOC people.

It was fun to play it and a made for a happy time every time I saw @downes or @audreywatters or @davecormier, or UNCLE @jimgroom, and I even got a George Siemens (@gsiemens, on Twitter)!


Wonderful Friends

Then, David said I should make a True Friends one of it.

that David said

I said, “OK, I will.” But it was kind of a hard task for me. I have many True Friends! 

In the end, I had to pick and choose just some of my True Friends to put into my own 2048: @iamTalkyTina’s True Friends Edition game. I made the icons all into #noir106 ones because of #noir106. It looks like this when you start to play.

You can play it on the Internet anytime you want! 

I was thinking that it might be fun one day to have it randomize the game pieces from my True Friends Index, so that each time you played the game, you would get a different set of True Friends. It would even be fun to have the game pieces change DURING the game! You know, just for added adventure and excitement!

But in the mean time, you can play the game just the way it is!

Can you get to the Top True Friend



Happy Birthday, Super True Friend Christina!

“Tina Philosophress for Christina’s Birthday” by Talky Tina, on Flickr

The Daily Create TDC918 said to make a birthday card for my Super True Friend, Christina Hendricks (@clhendricksbc, on Twitter) and because she is a Philosophress, like me, I made a Philosophy card for her.

It was another time to practice making things look old in Photoshop. Plus I am wearing a toga thing like Aristotle and Playdough and those folks back then.

The important message words are in Greek Letters and so you will have to do some work to understand them in your own language. But Greek Letters was what they thought in back in the olden days.

So this was another great thing for The Daily Create. Plus, a chance to make a nice card for a nice Super True Friend. 

Happy Birthday, Christina! 

Well, bye.

Instant GlitchaChrome GIF Art — Just Add Tina

My GlitchaChrome ds106 Glitch GIF of me

Well! It was very nice to read my True Friend John Johnston‘s (@johnjohnston, on Twitter) post, called Glitchachrome ds106 Glitch GIFs,  about how he made an app to make a GlitchAChrome ds106 Glitch GIF  to make GlitchGIFs like my True Friends Mariana (@mdvfunes) and Christina (@clhendricksbc) had been doing while I was having an Art Lack like UNCLE Jim, and then make it like a Chrome like Rochelle (@Rockylou22) did, and then all I had to do was download it and put in a picture and then press some buttons to make my very own instant GlitchaChrome ds106 Glitch GIF Artwork of me. That is what I made up above.

I started with my nice CGA (Club of Ghostly Avatars) picture from yesterday.  (Isn’t it just a little bit spooky of me? DUtMW. TDLtMW!)

This is what it looks like when you are making a GlitchaChrome ds106 GIF Art using John’s app.

John Johnston, Simple Glitch app

John Johnston’s Simple Glitch app interface, with ME!

You can see how I picked six different Glitch versions that it made for me down at the bottom (I had to keep pressing Reset Image and Ran String from Img buttons and then the big GLITCH IT! button and then pick the one I liked by clicking in that thumbnail box and did that six times and then I just pressed Export GlitchaChrome GIF button plus I made it 17 instead of 20 delay, just to be different.   You can read about how he made his app on his blog post, Glitchachrome ds106 Glitch GIFs. That is what I did and then I made my GlitchaChrome ds106 Glitch GIF of me!

Plus, you can download John’s app called Simple Glitch from his blog post so you can make your own of it like I did. It only took me longer to download than it did to make the Art. That is what I say is the easy way to Make Art. Plus, it is a fun way for Friends to make Art.

So now it is YOUR turn!

Well, bye!

The #ds106zone LoDown #34 Part 1 @iamTalkyTina Takes on All #pretenderTinas

WELL!! That was quite an adventure! I had such great fun making this LoDown podcast #34 for all of my Friends, and it was a lot of work getting it ready for my time on #ds106radio. It was nice that my Friends were patient with me getting on the radio because I had to install Nicecast at the last minute and found out that I didn’t have the LAME thing working on my Audacity (lame, huh?) and so I had to make the sounds go right from Audacity to NiceCast and then I had to mix over to iTunes where I had my closing song “Tina Don’t Like the Mean Word” ready to play which was a good thing because when Audacity crashed then the last part of my show was missing so I just switched over to the song and it was a bit like @jimgroom audio people said which was funny but I was sad that the Rumble had to wait for tomorrow night same TINA time, same TINA channel (#ds106radio, tomorrow night! be there!)

So, here is the recording (with a tiny little edit where the Rumble was supposed to go) and the closing song “Tina Don’t Like the Mean Word” song at the end.

I hope you like it!

Well, Bye!
