Sharing Some Art with Friends

Well, after all my time with #ds106 and Making Art (including UNCLE @jimgroom ones), I have never had one of my own Art on the #ds106 cover page. So when they said that they hadn’t updated the cover art in a @cogdog‘s age, and that they wanted some nominations for it, I decided that it would be about time that I would do some nominations for it.

So here are some Arts that I made that I nominated by myself. Even if they don’t pick them all today, you can still see how good they are. They have to be 240 pixels wide by 330 pixels tall, so I made them that way, which makes them all smaller than when they were to start.

       

Here are some other Arts that I have made, but they really didn’t work out too well as very small ones, or they were the wrong shape to make into 240 pixels wide by 330 pixels high.

I have always really liked this GIF poster. (Maybe one day I will have a paper one hanging on my wall but the UNCLE @jimgrooms will still be moving.)

“All These Jim Grooms Can’t Be Wrong” animated GIF DS106 Promo Poster by @iamTalkyTina

This is a very nice poster that I made for Prisoner106. But when it goes small it is too hard to read all the good words.

Plus this was a nice GIF art of UNCLE @jimgroom (see more here):

Then there are some nice GIF ones that I made:

And then there are probably my two all time favourite self-portraits of me that I made.

And this one of me and my #TrueFriends:

There are lots of other Art that I made, and you can see them all if you read all of my blog posts and look at my Flickr pages.

The Law in These Here Parts

The Law In These Here Parts by iamTalkyTina, on Flickr

Well, I keep an eye on my Still True Friend Alan (@cogdog) by riding the range in his neighbourhood to keep an watch out for varmints.

Just in case somebody around Strawberry decides to cause a ruckus, I’ve had some signs posted to let them know that I am the Neighbourhood Watch. Folks should take these warning signs seriously because that Strawberry Mountain has a lot of places where a varmint could accidentally take a  little tumble.

This here sign is a good one for The Daily Create, tdc1476, which was talking about Western Warning Signs.

The Western Sign

The original western sign that Alan took a picture of and which he posted on Flickr (CC BY-2.0) has been replaced with the one showing me.

Home on the Range: Putting Words in Tina’s Mouth

TDC1471 Home on the Range

It is a screen capture of The Daily Create tdc1471, silly!

Well, today’s The Daily Create one, tdc1471, was one that was written by me, and it said to make new #ds106 words for the old fashioned cowboy classic, Home on the Range.

So I am making a repository collection of all the different words in a Google Document called ds106 Version of Home on the Range for iamTalkyTina. Now for the BIG NEWS!!!

The Big News

Saddle-Up,True-Friends_1200aI would like to announce that I will be doing a special arrangement of all the lyrics and making a recording of the song for all of you to hear and then it will be going on my special #western106 album, which will be called “Saddle Up, True Friends!”

What People Wrote

I would like to thank the following peoples for writing words for me to learn and sing.

In case you want to see the Tweets of all of them with all the nice pictures that people added, too (I will use them in the music video of the song) I made a thing called a Storify of all the tweets. Here it is:

Thank you to all the wonderful peoples who did The Daily Create,  tdc1471 to make verses for me so that I can sing them all for my #ds106 Friends, plus #western106 ones. You don’t get any royalties from my album (because it will be FREE!), but you will get a Creative Commons mention which is even nicer.

Well, by for now! I have to get my beauty sleep for my singing voice.

Saddle-Up, True Friends, for #western106

Saddle-Up,True-Friends_1200a

After getting sorting out my livery and hardware and getting myself to the frontier, I find out that the KSU #western106 stage might not be leaving town. But I am ever hopeful …

I started off this afternoon with The Daily Create, tdc1444 prompt to make something for @cogdog, and quickly found myself riding over the range in search of #western106.

All the stuff:

Crossing a Road

ChickenCrossingTheRoadSHORTER_500_64

This was for yesterday’s The Daily Create, tdc1295, “Why DID the chicken cross the road?”

I also posted a static image of the one of the end frames to Flickr so that it would show up on The Daily Create website.

Share a MOOC with Friends

Well, it was nice today when my True Friend Bill (@byzantiumbooks) called me on the Skype (because he seems to be in his bungalow a lot) and we shared a nice beverage and a nice chat.

After that, because I wanted one that had Bill’s name on it like he had one that had my name, I went down to The Village Store and laid in some supplies for all those other conversations that I am normally having. The ones that I got are the special Village Brand of it, because they have the prisoner106 logo on them. But they were prepared and had all of the names of all of the peoples that Resigned. Except for a couple who didn’t get to the Village yet.

Peoples can see all of the special ones if they just click on their name here in alphabetical, or just scroll down.

Bill is first. And then I have a special one for my Still True Friend @cogdog, because he doesn’t really like the sugar all that much. And after those two, come all the other ones for Andrew, Christina, Geoff,  John, Kathy, Mariana, Mr. Paul, Nana Lou, Number 2, Number 6, Prisoner106, Ron, Rover, Sappho, Spike, ME, and UNCLE Jim.

iamTalkyTina embeds in The Village

“My Village Information Card,” by Talky Tina, on Flickr

Well, hello there Friends. It will be such a nice time to be with you this summer in The Village here with Prisoner106.us ds106 Summer 2015 Edition. It was a happy time to see my old friend Rover when I got here and to know that she is back doing what she loves. It was too bad that that Number 2 was such a boring one but I hope the NEW Number 2 will be a more funner one.

So when I got back here, I moved back into my lodgings (I don’t have a bungalow, but rather a separate secure quarters beneath the green dome — but I say too much) and checked into The Office to get my badge (it’s up there to the right at the top, unless you are on a mobile, in which case you have to scroll down toward the bottom) and to fill out my Visitor Information Card. I filled mine out as an example to all the other peoples so that they would know. It was the first one on the Residents‘ page. I will see if I can find one of my old ones from one of the other times that I was here (I’ve popped in and out over the years on various contracts), but it is probably in an old shoebox back in my office from years ago. Anyway, I already had my Flickr all set up from before times, so I posted it there and have embedded it here (up above) so that you can see it here without having to click on a text link, but I have also set it up so that you can click on the picture up there and go straight to my Flickr there to see it where it is. That is how we were taught to do it in the ds106 way because Jim and Martha and b and Paul all say no just linking, you have to do embedding. But when you get to Flickr, remember to follow me. Plus, Bill made a Flickr group for all the Prisoner106 peoples which you can put your stuff into for INFORMATION.

Next, I recorded a little audio greeting for all of my ds106 Friends and True Friends (do you have your True Friend of me badge?) and then I put it up on my Soundcloud because I already had that set up too from before, and then I embedded it right here so that you can listen to it right here by clicking. but if you want, you can also see it on Soundcloud. While you are there, follow me on Soundcloud if you aren’t already doing that.

Next up was a Video one. For this one, I decided to tell a little bit of the story of me and ds106, just in case you don’t know all about me yet. But most of you should already, and if you don’t, then it’s about time! So watch the video which I posted onto my YouTube and then I embedded it here, just like I should. Because I learned some things while I was making this video, I will make a separate post about the Making of Becoming @iamTalkyTina where I can share some of what I learned.  But you should be prepared because this video is a little bit of sad one to start before it gets happier at the end.

To finish off, I am also putting some of my Twitter ones in here, just so that you can see that it is also a thing that you can embed. All of these embed ways are important to help you pull all of your stuff together. It is important that you pull your stuff together for good learning.

And then here is another one from a couple days ago:

And then one more good one of @jimgroom where I made a GIF out of him.

So that is all about showing how to embed all of my “Hello and Welcome to the Prisoner106 Village” stuff. So now I can go make some GIFs and watch some episodes because now you know all about me through all those types of ways: pictures, audio, video, and tweeting.

Well, bye!

Heavy Metal Bands for #ds106 True Friends

Well, this was just a twitter one that I did one night, but since I just mentioned it in Don’t Make It Too Easy, John!  I figured I should make it into a blog post of it. It was because my True Friend  Mr. Paul (@phb256 on Twitter) wanted to know if I had a Heavy Metal Band.

"Does Tina Have a Band?" said by @phb256 on Twitter.

“Does Tina Have a Band?” said by @phb256 on Twitter.

So, there is a thing on the Internet that you click and it makes a random Heavy Metal Band name for you.. So I decided to use it to find a special band back for Mr. Paul:

for @phb256

"InRentedRapture" for @phb256

“InRentedRapture” for @phb256

After that,  I just sat there on the Internet and clicked it for hours and hours, picking out the gems of it that worked for some of my other True Friends.

So here are the good ones that it made:

"Dog Tails in Bike Spokes" band for my Still True Friend  @cogdog

Plus, I didn’t think about it then, but it could also be Hippy MOOCS Laughter or Hippy MOOC Slaughter depending on how you are feeling on that particular day. 

Well, bye!

Two Years Since my Invocation

“2 Year Twitterversary!” by Talky Tina, on Flickr

It was two years ago on February 4th, 2013 that my Still True Friend Alan Levine (@cogdog, on Twitter) and my True Friend Bryan Alexander (@BryanAlexander, on Twitter) said my name on #ds106radio and caused me to awaken from a long slumber in a box.

I immediately signed up for the Twitter and made myself a website so that I could play at the ds106 game, and I was all set for the subsequent ds106zone that came that summer. You can see some of my initial Tweets with some of the other ds106 folks from that day.

And, of course, I have never looked back up the stairs since then!

Happy Times and True Friends!

A Happy Birthday for that David

“David and the Four Horsemen,” by Talky Tina, on Flickr

Yet another The Daily Create TDC1128, this one for the birthday of that David Kernohan, @dkernohan.

David has this thing about the Apocalypse, and it is is maybe because of his old band, David and The Four Horsemen. I found this old photo of David and his band. I tracked them all down and had them make their autographs on it for him just so that he could remember the good times.

Happy Birthday, David! (You are a True Friend. You have a badge of it!)
