Back in the Saddle?

The Daily Create, tdc1997 Show Us Your Bike has prompted me to get my bike out of storage, put some air in the tires, and take it out for a spin so that I could get a good picture. It was a great feeling to be moving on the bike again, and given that the summer break […]

Two big-name Canadian rock bands, Rush, and Max Webster,  collaborated 37 years ago when they recorded the track “Battlescar,” live at Phase One Studios in Toronto.  The power of the vocals, guitars, and drums in this song has always had me wondering what might have come about had the two bands merged into one.  The […]

Two apps for the iOS offer two separate functions. The DSCVR Tracker is designed to follow a face as a […]

Cartoon Thyself!

Myself, filtered using the Toon Camera app, for The Daily Create, tdc1994. The app gave me a range of different images. I layered them together in Photoshop and exported them as an animated GIF.

Tiny Planet World of DS106

So, back in the day you could make some pretty cool “Tiny Planet” photos using the iPhone app, Tiny Planet Photos. I had a bit of inspiration to try out the app (it was still on my phone) but ran into some real problems in getting something like what I remember from back when. After […]

T-Shirt Paint Create Lune

John Johnston (@johnjohnston, on Twitter) has created yet another web tool that polls the #ds106 flickr feed and allows you to create a “Lune” to accompany an image. I had not heard of the Lune before today, but it turns out to be a Haiku variant, based on word count rather than syllables. The pattern is […]

The Headless 106’s – Greatest Hits

The Daily Create, tdc1990, asks us to share a band and album cover for which the band is missing something — Men without Hats was given as the example. Back in the fall of 2013, a “headless” version of ds106 was envisioned whereby the course would be available online for “drop in” and community participation, […]

Almost Realistic!

The Daily Create, tdc1987, asks us to use the Fotogenerator web tool “to turn a series of line sketches into a photo.” We are then asked to assess “how scary or realistic” the results are. Below you can see the sketch I drew (a bit tricky, using your mouse to draw on in the input […]
