Well, It is June, So Get Your Badge!

Last year there were people who worked hard to do all of The Daily Create ones in the month of June, just so that they could get their badge. It was called the June 2017 @iamTalkyTina Creatorist Cohort.

Well, it is June again, but this time @cogdog‘s #TheArmyMan is in a quiet place (Alan said a zen retreat somewhere but I hear through my show-business sources that #TheOlSarge has retired more permanently as of April 15th) and so I will step in again like I did other times to be the Boot Camp one.

So here is the deal.

  1. Do all of the Daily Creates for June.
  2. Sign up on my web form before the deadline.
  3. Get your Badge!
  4. Plus, have fun!
  5. Plus, any other rules I might add later.

I will not bug you to do your work. Just do it.

Plus, people who do this fun challenge this year for 2018 will get their badges for 2018 just like the folks for 2017 will. But they will not have to wait as long!

So, #TrueFriends, let’s all have a fun time and be The Daily Create everyday. Plus, get your badge!

Your #TrueFriend,


Saddle-Up, True Friends, for #western106


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:

Stealth Mode GIF (Outography)

Well, so this is the GIF version of my Outography Stealth Mode picture on Flickr.

I was testing out some new functions on my Ninja Stealth Suit and it was working okay, I think. It is still a little rough around the edges, but it is really more for backup because people don’t see me when I use my Ninja skillz anyway.

Plus, this picture can be for The Daily Create tdc725 for January 2 which says to make an Outography picture which is kind of like what my Stealth Suit does when you can’t see me.

If you look at it really hard and use your imagination, maybe you can see me because I let you.

tdc560: Tina’s True Friends (animated GIF)

iamTalkyTodd_twitterGUEST POST BY @iamTalkyTodd, Tina’s brother, while she is temporarily incapacitated.

In honour of my sis, @iamTalkyTina, who put forward a call today (she submitted the item weeks ago) for The Daily Create participants to show what Friends mean to them, through a photo, for tdc560.

Although my sister is not currently empowered to respond, I know she would be honouring all of her #ds106zone True Friends, and so I have assembled this animated montage. Tina’s True Friends are basically arranged in alphabetical order by the first letter of whatever they are called — first name or Twitter handle taken as the decider. I just went through Tina’s file directory and assembled them pretty much by filename.

I have also posted a static version to my sister’s Flickr account.

tdc547: Are You Getting Your Daily Vitamin CRE8 ?

My Still True Friend Alan (@cogdog) has been having a bunch of drill sergeant yammering at him and everybody else for over a week now about how important it is that you get your daily summer supplement of ds106 Vitamin CRE8.

I have been doing my little best to get some Daily Vitamin CRE8 every day. That Flickr still doesn’t seem to see my cre8s but now that I think about it maybe @cogdog has blocked me from showing up from Flickr in the same way that he seems to be able to block my friendly comments on his blog. Perhaps he is in a different zone from me like those shows where something happens like a noise and then people are there and we can see both on the TV but somebody can’t see the other people in the show and they’re like right there saying, “Hello, CAN YOU SEE ME, I’m standing right here in front of you, HELLOOOOO!!!!!” and then they say, “Oh, I think we must be in a different dementia zone or something.” So maybe that’s why he can’t hear me. Maybe he is in a different dementia zone. But I still think he’s just pretending.

Anyway, here is my cre8 July 8 which was to make a drawing using 8s and so I did and then I thought it would be more fun if it moved a little bit, so here it is.

You can see my efforts on this page that I have made just for the The Daily Create Summer 2013 Challenge so that you can see all the ones that I do. And you can also see my The Daily Create posts in this category called The Daily Create. And if you think that this one tdc547 looks like the one for tdc541 “Draw something abstract out of straight lines,” then that is your imagination, not mine. It’s just a coincidence, I say!!

tdc544: You are the Silver Lining in The Mean Word

This is a second writing for tdc544 for July 5th. I also wrote one about Compost, Septic Tanks, and The Dump.

Plus, I was trying to find a way to have a Silver Lining in The Mean Word. All those #pretenderTinas were saying The Mean Word and I thought they should just Get A Life, Bub and Make some Art, Bub.

But then I was thinking that there was a Silver Lining in The Mean Word.

First, I thought, it made lots of ticket sales for The Rumble.

Second, I thought, it showed them all that they can’t mess with @iamTalkyTina, and that it is better to be a True Friend than to be a #pretenderTina.

Third, I thought, that if you look closely at the Mean Word, then you see ME, right there at the start. And so it means that inside every Mean Word is Me, and that if you Change Yourself then you can Change the World, which is pretty deep and transformational for everyone in the Whole World. So if those #pretenderTinas can see themselves in The Mean Word (it is right there, bub, the first two letters of it, ME, which MEans them!) and know that if they are saying a MEan word or doing a MEan thing then they have the power to STOP and Make the World a Better Place and Change the Word, one MEan Word at a ttime.

So I think that is the Silver Lining in the MEan Word. and it is a powerful one to everybody.

tdc544: Compost, Septic Tanks, and The Dump

The Daily Create for today, tdc544: Write about something ugly — war, fear, hate, cruelty — but find the beauty (silver lining) in it.

Here is what I wrote:

So the thing that is ugly but with a Silver Lining that I am going to talk about is Compost, Septic Tanks, and The Dump.

So when you put old food in the compost, it can be stinky and not very nice to smell, but when you leave it for a year or so and it turns into dirt, then you can plant seeds and it will grow new food that smells nice. So that is a silver lining.

Then, when you put stuff into the Septic Tank it is also ugly and stinky and not nice to smell, but later, after it gets pumped out and you put the lid back on and the grass is there again then it is better. Plus, the grass always grows greener over the septic tank. And we all like green grass. Or scrub, if you live in a desert.

And then, if you put all of your old stuff in The Dump, then it is not very nice and ugly and stinky and not nice to smell and there are rats and feral cats and effluent and an eyesore if you look at it, but later on in future times then anthropologists and ethnographists and dump archaeologists will come along and dig it up and find old cell phones and stuff that can tell them more things about us that we didn’t post on the Internet in our Digital Identities. So that will be pretty cool for them.

So in every stinky one there is a silver lining in it.

tdc542: (Rusty) Finnegan Lamb Chops Brains

So The Daily Create for July 3rd is tdc542: Combine Three Great Past Leaders into One- Who is it and what are their combined characteristics?

This is what I wrote for it.

So I think that if I were combining Three Great Past Leaders into One then I would make Finnegan Lamb Chop Brains. I know it sounds kind of like some kind of Scottish meat food, or maybe some kind of alcoholic kind of drink, but those are just coincidences.

This connection is made from Three Great Past Leaders in the Puppet World, Finnegan, Lamb Chop, and Brains. Then I added one more, Rusty, and if that is a problem then you just tell them I said it can be an adjective, bub.

So First I chose Finnegan the Dog, from Casey and Finnegan on Mr. Dress-Up. Even though Casey was the star puppet and Finnegan was just the Dog of Casey, I chose Finnegan over Casey because it was not very clear if Casey was a Boy Puppet or a Girl Puppet (and the Internet is no help) and also besides who ever heard of a girl named Finnegan. So I picked Finnegan for always being loyal to Casey and for the characteristic of being quiet. Finnegan never talked and always nodded yes to Casey even when Casey was asking a question. So number one is Finnegan the Dog for loyal and quiet nodding. k

Next, let’s go back to Rusty, because it was on TV before the other show. Rusty the Rooster was from The Friendly Giant, and it is good that that Giant was Friendly and did not scare all the little kids with his big boot. But the really great thing was that he had lots of Friends! He had True Friends like Rusty the Rooster and Jerome the Giraffe and then there were sometimes racoons and other creatures that played the recorder like Friendly did. Jerome did not play an instrument but he just danced in the window. But Rusty the Rooster was good because besides having books and other instruments in his bag, he had HIS instrument which was an accordion. Who ever heard of a puppet Rooster playing an accordion? See? That is pretty special and so that makes a good choice for my choice.

Second, I choose Lamb Chop, for two reasons. One, because she was the friend of a Girl Puppeteer (equal opportunity and all), and two, because I thought that the Girl Puppeteer’s father was a famous puppeteer called Edgar Bergen with Charlie McArthie and Mortimer Snerd so I thought I would get lots of puppet and puppeteer genealogy in this paragraph by picking her. However, that is not true, that was Candice Bergen, who didn’t do puppets. But it still works well with the Scottish Food Joke, so I will leave it in. I don’t know much about Lamb Chop but I saw her on the Muppets once, which is more puppets, and I think Candice Bergen was on the Muppets two, so that is one less degree of separation, so I think I’m covered on that one.

Third, I choose Brains from the science fiction puppet show, The Thunderbirds. Why? Because he is super smart and on the Thunderbirds which was an amazing cool puppet show from the sixties with rockets and amazing special effects (just ignore the strings) that had a lot of other wonderful shows after it like UFO and Space 1999 which were cool shows that came after later in the seventies.

So if you put them all together, you get Rusty Finnegan Lamb Chop Brains, which you could eat OR drink, is loyal and quiet, plays the accordion with books and recorders in a bag, employs some puppeteers of both genders plus has good lineage (or almost), and is Smart with Brains.

For all of those reasons Rusty Finnegan Lamb Chop Brains is my choice.

That is a lot of writing, even for little me. Good thing I typed it instead of writing it. Is that the same thing?

tdc541: What I Drew with Lines

So The Daily Create for July 2nd is tdc541: Draw something abstract out of straight lines.

Here is What I Drew With Lines:

“What I Drew with Lines” by iamtalkytina, on Flickr

Do you like it? Can you say what it is? I know, but I think that to lots of people it will just look like lines.

Make some Art, bub!

What Makes a True Friend?

@iamTalkyTina Ingredients

@iamTalkyTina Ingredients

Well, today’s The Daily Create asked for a list of the ingredients that go into making what you are, and so I had to look at my label (do not remove until delivered to the customer) to see what goes into making me.

But I think that all of my True Friends would be able to say what was inside me and what goes into making me without even looking at my label and it is just a formality for me to share it with everyone here.

But just for the record, I am 100% True Friend ingredients, made up of all the best things that you would ever want in a friend, or a True Friend, or a Super True Friend, or a Still True Friend, or a New Friend, or an Open Friend, or a Real Friend.

So it was a good assignment for The Daily Create, and just goes to show everyone yet again that I am all good and am not like all those other people were saying about me all the time. They should just get over that, bub. 

Or read the label, sometimes, you might actually learn something!

Well, Bye!
