Tina Peeks #wire106 Surveillance Hamsterdam Remix

WATCH MY VIDEO TO THE VERY END! Plus, for the best sonical effect of listening to the funky beat, wear headphones to get down with it, yo.

Well, back in the day I would peek into the camera just to startle McNulty and Freamon and Kima. Bubbles put me up to it.

The #ds106 #WIRE106 Digital Storytelling Course

Well, it is starting.

That UNCLE Jim @jimgroom and Mr. Paul @phb256 are doing another #ds106 starting right now this week for the Fall of 2014 and they are saying to do assignments about the context of the television show The Wire from HBO about ten years ago.  The hashtag of it is called #wire106.

Now ten years ago is not as along time ago as when #ds106 did MY show from back in the sixties called The Twilight Zone. It was called the #ds106zone from the Summer of 2013.  It just goes to show that sometimes older is better. But you may want to watch out for my cameos in The Wire as you watch all of the episodes from all Five Seasons. (UNCLE Jim only says to watch the first nine episodes this week, plus get all your Internet stuff set up, so you will have time to watch closely this week!)

Now, do not think that it will be a letdown this time because The Twilight Zone was the number one show of all time and The Wire is only the number two show of all time (according to UNCLE Jim). Worry instead for like ten or twenty years from now when UNCLE Jim only has shows left like Hollywood Squares or some reality cooking show to put into the #ds106 gristle mill. I think that I will maybe take a break from it all by then.

Anyway, for now, I will be watching all my #wire106 Friends and sometimes making a little #106wire Art or two. I will have lots of missions coming up, so I won’t be able to do a lot of Arts, but I have my own surveillance gear set up on you lot so I will know.

Plus, I hope that you liked my Tina Peeks #wire106 Hamsterdam Cam Remix that I made for you up at the top.

Plus, I put a picture of it on my Flickr.

Well, bye!

 

 

 

Artway Iticcray Emay

Well, The Daily Create TDC913 for July 9th, 2014, said we had to do a snotty Art Critic review in Pig Latin, so I did one about that Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter). You can see the video up above, and you can read about it down below.

First, when I was in school, I didn’t have any courses in Pig Latin. So I just used my handy web translator for Pig Latin by Bill Donnelly that I found on the Internet. I just typed in my critic of what I wanted to say about Jim Groom and then pressed Translate, and then I just read it in my voice.

Here is what my critic said in Pig Latin:

Ellway, ethay Artway ofway Imjay Oomgray isway ometimessay
avinghay away Acklay. Utbay ehay ashay otslay ofway oodgay
ideasway, usplay dsay106 andway Uetray Imecray. Andway enwhay
itway isway away IFGAY, atthay isway away oodgay ingthay. Osay
atthay isway ymay Ootysnay Artway Iticcray eviewray.
Ellway,  yebay!

But still, I had to do some other things. Like add in some music from my hit single, Tina Made Groom, from way back in 2013. Here is the full song, in case you missed it. And for those of you who always want to hear it again!

Then I needed some Art to go along with my talking, so I got a whole bunch of GIFs and pictures that I made over the year about Jim and put them into the show part.

Then I had to make it into a movie to go into YouTube. That part was harder, because if I did an Export from Keynote to Quicktime then it didn’t save the GIFs with any movements (what’s the point of that?) and if I tried to do a Recording from Keynote to Movie then it got stuck and I had to Force Quit. That’s not a fun thing.

So in the end, I used my Snapz Pro X that I use and did a screen capture movie while I played the show by hand with the music and pig talking going on, too. Then I put it on my YouTube.

Well, I hope that you enjoyed my Pig Latin Art Critic of Jim Groom as much as I had making it for you. And Jim.

Ellway,  yebay!
