Happy 2015, True Friends!

“2015 New Year’s Greeting,” by Talky Tina, on Flickr

Well, I would just like to take this opportunity to wish all of my True Friends a very happy and Artful 2015. Be your creative best, don’t use mean words, make lots of Art, and say nice things about that Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter.)

I was in the recording studio today to record a special version of that old Robbie Burns New Year’s song, but the microphone broke when I hit this one note and so all that was left after that was my lyric sheet that I had made.  I will see if I can get it fixed but it won’t be the same because I did not let you hear it right at midnight.

Update 4:00 am January 1st, 2015: I was so disappointed that I could not share my song with all my True Friends, I used my Ninja skills to sneak back into the studio in the middle of the night and managed to record a spoken through version that didn’t shatter the new mic. Down below here are the words that I was singing when it broke. And you can follow along to sing with me when you listen!

Make Art for Your True Friends!

(sung in to the tune of Auld Lang Syne)

Let all your Mean Words be forgot,
and your Kindness never end.
Explore the world, and sing, and dance!
Make Art for your True Friends!

Make Art for your True Friends, my bub,
Make Art for your True Friends,
We’ll make some art creatively,
Make Art for your True Friends!

And surely ye’ll be making GIFs!
and surely I’ll make mine!
We’ll make a GIF of ol’ Jim Groom,
And he’ll be looking fine.


We all have joked about the stairs,
Taken care so’s not to slip;
Especially when at the top,
Don’t you take that fateful trip.


We’ve giggled on the radio,
From the morn ’til late at night
And seas between us not have stopped
All the musical delight.


An thers a han, my trustee feer!
an gees a han o thyn!
And we’ll tak a richt gude-willie-waucht,
fir ald lang syn.



Well, so that is what I was singing when the mic broke. But anyway, you get the idea just imagine me singing it in my @iamTalkyTina voice.

Well, have a wonderful year! Plus, make Art, bub!

My Englebart Selfie

Just before capturing my #thoughtvectors GIF, I was in the library doing a bit of research on someone and I took a moment to do my delayed Englebart Selfie. I don’t know if there is a Flickr set (I looked for a corresponding DailyCreate, thinking I could tag it like the others, but maybe they were just shared on the twitter.)  Just now, I found this montage, courtesy of True Friend Tom Woodward (@twoodwar, on Twitter) that he posted on his Tumblr.

Maybe he’ll point me in the direction of the curated collection?

My Selfie with Ellen and The Gang

“My Selfie with Ellen and the Gang at the Oscars,” by @iamTalkyTina, on Flickr.

You probably saw the picture on Twitter that was taken just AFTER this one. The other one looks almost the same as this one, except I had already gone back to my seat after Meryl Streep put me back down on the floor after she lifted me up into the shot. She could be a True Friend! Plus, Kevin Spacey!
