For today's TDC... #tdc3296 #ds106 Write a ds106-nine-years birthday poem in Lu Yu Quatrain style https://dlvr.it/RqyQcY

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.

For today's TDC... #tdc3274 #ds106 Adobe Flash Obit https://dlvr.it/RpXHLs pic.twitter.com/0CXiKkS93X

#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.

#tdc3244 #ds106 Blue https://daily.ds106.us/tdc3244/

The sky is grey here today so I took a trip through my flickr. Modified a script to pull down my photos flickr thinks is blue.

There is nothing I could see in the flickr api to filter colours as there is in the search but I noticed the url for the search contains text=&color_codes=7 so I added that in. Sees to have worked.

Victoria Park Pond, Bright November Day
#tdc3243 #ds106 The first bright day for a while

See: waterfowl, runners, dog walkers, autumn leaves & a blue sky
Feel: Winter sun, frustrated, crowded, thankful
Hear: chatter, traffic, playground kids
Smell: Cold water, winter coming
Taste: tail of my after lunch coffee

#tdc3231 #ds106 What personality is your font? https://daily.ds106.us/tdc3231/

 

Dear DS106 Daily Create, I type mostly in TextMate, the font is Menio Regular 16. I had to check that. I Do not think I've ever spent much time thinking about fonts. I spend more time thinking about gifs. #tdc3231 #ds106Dear DS106 Daily Create,

#tdc3188 #ds106 Make a Phenakistoscope http://youtube.com/watch?v=2rzwdRqsuVM

#tdc3188 #ds106 I now have heard how to pronounce Phenakistoscope (I still can’t say it). This reminds me of a rabbithole @cogdog sent me down and lead to

CSS phenakistiscope

&

More phenakistoscope.

I might have to play again now…

Liked Harper, 1966 HTML Poster | MICHAEL BRANSON SMITH by Michael Branson Smith (michaelbransonsmith.net)
In the meantime, I’m reaching back to my recent past with the animated posters, but with a new approach. I’m going to try and build a classic movie poster a week using HTML/CSS. The first is Harper, a poster for the 1966 Paul Newman film. I came across it through my Flickr feed of all things.

I always love Michael Branson Smith‘s work/play which I came across via ds106 his animated movie posters are special.
