What immediately came to mind this morning was the voice of Richie Havens … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rynxqdNMry4 (What other songs of freedom are there out there worth listening to?)

Redemption Song, ”Won’t you help to sing These songs of freedom?“ always worth a listen.

@ds106dc #tdc3419 #ds106 so many, services that have vanished or pivoted, domains gone 404 or on sale. Bless the internet archive.
But my biggest regret was pilot error, forgetting I’d off loaded my photo library to an external disk I flattened the disk for an emergency backup.

Fireworks is old but I love it still.
My gifs are glitchy but they have had a few likes.
#ds106 Tweets and posts bulging with inspiration flow into view.
#tdc3296, nine years you say, a butterfly dream.

#tdc3274 #ds106 RIP Flash. I recall Flash with fondness. Anything “influenced by HyperTalk” can’t be all bad. Got edu licenses for MX 2004 & taught kids some animation fun. Enjoyed the scripting. Played with & made stuff, once got paid! Action Script 3 was 2 hard for me.

For today’s TDC… #tdc3273 #ds106 2020 In a Photo

If a picture can be monetarily equivalenced to an arbitrary number of words, then a photo ought to be able to somehow encapsulate a year. Or represent it. Or say something about it.

Find, or better yet, take a photo, that speaks to something about 2020 in its entirety. Go for representational not literal (please pass on the burning trash fires, we know that one).

I thought this one was pretty sensational…

from: #tdc3273 #ds106 2020 In a Photo | The Daily Create

I am kind of stumped summing up 2020 in a photo. So I took the video of my year of flickr photos and played with it.

The top is a slitscan of the video. the centre line of each frame. I dug out procesing and a script from Slit Cam: Slit camera timeline images from video..

The lower half uses ShantnuS/AverageFrameColour: 🎨 Creates an image of average frame colours for a YouTube video which I found on github. Unfortunately this failed at the download. so I edited the python script to use a local file. This without any knowledge (other than spaces are important) of python.

A useful exercise as it reminded my old brain of processing which has a lot of possibilities for fun, and proved that you don’t need to know much to make simple edits of code.
