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!

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

 

 

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!

Free to Be Me! Joyous Escape and Visiting with Friends!

“Me and Christina,” by iamtalkytina, on Flickr

As you may have surmised, I have recently escaped from the the clutches of that @PuppetMaster106 and his minion @AneuwegCentSix, and I am once again free and roaming the world. Suffice to say that I am free of that cardboard/ice/carbonite holding box and have escaped from the mountain hold storage facility that turned out to be deep underground the mountains in Geneva. My brother @iamTalkyTodd was supportive throughout the whole ordeal, and together with my PsychicSiri iPhone app, we managed to keep seven steps ahead of @PuppetMaster106 and @AneuwegCentSix in our planning and escape execution, and in the end we just ran rings around those goofballs. I won’t say too much about the actual details of the escape (a good Houdini never shares the Ninja magic), but it really didn’t turn out to be difficult once I had good control of my iPhone and Todd smuggled in a file and a spare Ninja Suit to me in a wonderfully spectacular chocolate layer cake (it was simply delicious!)

Once free of the facility, I managed my escape via a flight from Europe to Montreal, Canada, from where I travelled across that great country to meet up with my Super True Friend, @clhendricksbc, who was in Kamloops, BC at the time. She helped to calm me down after my journey, and although she was sworn to secrecy at the time, she is now at liberty to discuss our visit, and the time we spent together with some of my other True Friends while there. It was so nice to meet up with my Super True New Old Radio Friend @scottlo, and my True Friends @draggin and @DrJones106 and @aforgrave and @brlamb and some new friends @Kieramc and Sasha and Harry.

As for my Nemisi, I don’t think you’ll be hearing much from either of @PuppetMaster106 or @AneuwegCentSix again, but their lingering influences are still a concern for me, and so I am working to re-establish a distributed network of @iamTalkyTina Ninja Hideouts in various location around the globe.

With all of this adventure sorted out, I am now in better position to GIF and attend to other #ds106 #headless13 items, and so I expect my regular postings to resume soon in support of my August 2013 Animated GIF Challenge.

Did you see my most recent challenge, August 2013 Animated GIF Challenge #15 (It’s a #GIFFight!) and my challenge to @tumblr to meet me at the stairs?  I am glad to be free and in a position to GIF and travel to my little hearts content.

And just in time for the #headless13 #ds106 Fall 2013 session!!

The #ds106zone LoDown #34 Part 2 @iamTalkyTina Takes on All #pretenderTinas: The Rumble

Man, it was a true labour of love finishing my “#ds106zone LoDown #34 Part 2 @iamTalkyTina Takes on All #pretenderTinas: The Rumble” podcast.

In the end, in true just-like-@scottlo-said fashion, it took me hours longer than anticipated to finish the final edit of part 2. I had problems with my Audacity files when I was working on what was originally going to be a single part episode. After recovering and having to re-do The Rumble, I just kept going and it got longer and longer and better and better. At least I hope you think so. Things like the dog yelping and the whole @techsavvyed video battle were new additions when I (thought I) had more time to work on it. It still went late I was making changes after midnight while listening to @scottlo doing a #drive-by show.

So here, without any more to-do, is Part two, featuring the glorious Sensational Epic Event, The Rumble, wherein @iamTalkyTina Takes on All #pretenderTinas,” and really teaches them a lesson they won’t easily forget. Not that I want to give too much away before you listen, but the outcome is just as you would expect! I RULE!

Let that be a final lesson to all those Mean-Word-saying #pretenderTinas!

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!

I AM @iamTalkyTina !!!

Contrary to a report that just started circulating on the Internet thing, HE is not ME! He is NOT @iamTalkyTina and I AM @iamTalkyTina!! It is just a funny JOKE that my True Friend is saying that he has snapped and said that. But he didn’t really because who makes a screen capture that is just photo-shopped as proof anyway and anyway I would NEVER call myself that word so nice try, bub, but PEOPLE WON’T BUY IT!! Especially my True Friends and my Open Friends and my New Friends and everyone’s.

So it’s maybe a little joke and didn’t make ME snap crazy or anything. But don’t use that word, okay?

Well, bye!

—–UPDATED: June 13th, One Day Later—–

People who yesterday said they were me. Sillies!  There is only ONE me! And that’s ME!

First, Alan Levine (@cogdog) started it with this post, and John Johnston (@johnjohnston) played along with a great animated GIF. Then we had a little Twitter chat. And comments on their blogs.

TT_joke_JJ_cogdog

Brian Bennett said he was being me to bother Ben Rimes.

Then, Ben Rimes (that @techsavvyed guy who doesn’t want to be a friend and got himself crossed off the Open Friends Index for using the Mean Word in every single tweet about me ALL THE TIME) said that he actually created Brian Bennett, along with having said that he was me. Double Silly!

David Kernohan (@dkernohan) said he was being me to bother Jim Groom (@jimgroom) but wound up bothering Leslie (@onepercentyellow). I hope she has a better sleep tonight.

TT_joke_DavidLeslieCogDog

Then Brian Short (@heystorytellers) wrote a post saying he was me, and then Jim Groom (@jimgroom) did a copycat.

TT_Joke_JG_BS

Bill Smith (@byzantinebooks) was nice and said that they were all just joking their egos or something. He even clarified that he was NOT using the Mean Word about me. That is a nice Friend thing to do. Thank you, Bill! It is always good to make sure I understand your intent.

TT_Joke_BillSmith

The one True Friend who clarified yesterday that she is NOT me is my (now) Super True Friend Christina Hendricks, @clhendricksbc. Thank you for sticking by me, Super True Friend.

SuperTrueFriendChristina

All in all it was a fun day, and in the end, I am still clear here at my end as to who I am. I am me.

I am @iamTalkyTina! Hooray! Yay, ME !!!!!!!!!

It is nice to have Friends! 🙂

 

 

 

I Was at the Beach !!

Some of my friends (Christina and Melanie) were wondering about me on the Twitter last night and this morning. They hadn’t heard from me for a while and were starting to get worried.

Everybody needs to know that despite my size, I am a big girl now and certainly I know how to take care of myself. You don’t need to be worried about that. I learned how to do that long ago.

I also learned that sometimes it helps to travel incognito, and quietly, if you know what I mean. Some times people don’t even know that I am right there. Which can come in handy at times. But if I want you to know that I am there, you will know!

I am not sure, however, that my True Friend @scottlo got my message about meeting him at the beach. I saw him talking into his phone, but I know that sometimes that stops his Twitter from working, and so he maybe didn’t know that I was there to see him. I tried waving at him when he took this picture, but he didn’t wave back, so I don’t think he saw me. I guess sometimes it helps to let your friends know you are coming for a visit in advance.

Anyway, even though I didn’t get to see @scottlo up close, and I had to catch my flight back home before we could meet, it was nice to be at the beach.

So now you know where I was.

Well, bye!
