5 POINTS TO GIFINDOR!

My next task was to create a gif of my favourite film, the title has nothing to do with it, infact I hate Harry Potter, however I’ll do anything for a pun, and that’s a good one. The film I actually picked was Green Street. I could have made a gif from any of Pete Dunham, my hero growing up, and the actor Charlie Hunnam has the worst cockney accent of all time. The gif I made in the end was from the scene where Pete is covered in blood screaming ‘YOU SHOULD’VE PROTECTED HIM MATE!’

The gif was pretty simple to make if i’m honest, I first went to youtube to find the scene i wanted, then i used KeepVid to download the video, I then put it into movie maker, sometimes I like using Movie maker, brings be back to year 8 I.C.T lessons. after that I went to an online site called imgflip and they did the rest.

I actually think for my 1st gif its alright, probably could have done with some subtitles though, however its an easy process so I would be tempted to do more in the future.

BREAKING NEWS: More Daily Creates

#TDC1404 ‘s theme was (aptly enough) ‘Theme Song’, basically if I had a theme song what would it be. The problem here is, there is so many choices, and so little time (quite a lot of time actually, they’re daily, so 24 hours…) Anyway i was stuck between a Skepta, J. Cole or a song from by The Libertines, ’twas a tough decision, but after hours of studying the tapes, and singing/rapping along, I reached my answer, I also decided to rank them from 3-1, just to add a bit of excitement. Enjoy.

In at number 3… Skepta – Reflecting.

Probably one of the few songs I still listen to almost every week since i was about 15, so many great lines in this, my personal favourite though ‘I wouldn’t like me either, If I had a flow like yours that left no space for a breather.Then Skepta comes around…With a flow that breaks down…More times then a P reg Vauxhall Tigra, to book Skepta ain’t getting no cheaper’

Number 2: The Libertines – What a Waster

Some may argue this song is rather symbolic of my life #peakjuans, when i finally got to see the Libertines live in Hyde Park,for their comeback gig 2014, me and my best mate were beyond excited for them to play this, and when they did we lost our sh*t, screaming back at the stage ‘What a waster, what a f*cking waster, you p*ssed it all up the wall’ 

Finally, numero uno J. Cole – Villuminati

No real words to describe this, just J. Cole at his best to be honest, impeccable flow.

#tTDC1388 This time the idea was to show the world my happy place… you don’t need to be a genius to understand the tone in which i read that. This honestly took me about 30-35 minutes, just to think of something, I’m not a heartless person, but I am incredibly naive to everything on earth, meaning i’m rarely affected by anything, nothing is ever bad, or good, so i picked the place where i’ve had the most fun over the years.

Thirteen High Street – Buckingham

13 is pretty much the only bar in my town, and on weekends the whole town descends down there, meaning its the place where you’ve been getting drunk since you were hopping the fence at 16, and now its the place you go to meet up with the same idiots that hopped the fence with you.

#TDC1386 For this task i had to create a tongue twister, it was inspired by the original don Snoop D o double g, and it goes as follows. ‘How much kush could a real cat smoke if a real cat could smoke kush’

if I’m honest with you that is absolutely genius, the way I flipped real cat is a myth, i’m like Nas in his prime.

Social Media

What is Social Media? Well to Google it is websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. For me though its more than that, its a way of communicating with people you don’t see every day, and extending your relationships with people you already know, Its a way of allowing people to see what your life is really like, or what you want them to believe its like, for instance what better way of telling everyone that you are financially secure, by posting 100s of photos of a holiday to an expensive place?

The other side of social media which is in my opinion much more interesting, is the way in which it can be used for market research, sometimes it feels like the whole internet is peer pressuring me into buying things, for instance if I’ve looked on a page on ASOS for a jumper, I can be on Facebook the next day, and see an advert from ASOS on my homepage with the exact item I’ve been looking at. Brands are spending more time on their online presence now because its such a great market, over 57% of adults follow a brand on Twitter. Due to this in 2015 Online advertising will make up 25% of the ENTIRE advertising market, stats like these make you realise how far social media has come (both for personal, and business) and yet how far it can still go, makes you realise the great power of the machine itself.

Anyway, here are some links to other accounts.

Daily Creates

Daily Creates have been a bit of a struggle for me, the process itself its a great idea, its just the topics really never seem to be something i can be motivated by, however after doing them every day, i did run into one or two that i enjoyed, here they are.

This was actually Daily Create #TDC1387 and the theme was to create a missing poster for anything you wanted. I decided to choose Eden Hazard, for those of you who aren’t interested in Football, Hazard is a key player for Chelsea FC who have been struggling in the Premier League of late, and a large part of their poor performances, comes from Hazard not performing to his highest level.

I use Paint for a lot of Daily Creates, not because i’m too lazy to develop time and effort in a more complex program, but because i don’t feel like a Daily Create needs to have all the added sides, also paint is mad fun.

TDC 1385

Drake Calligraphy,  the task was to create creative hand drawn versions of Drake lyrics, this was potentially the only Daily Creates that didn’t take me more than 10 minutes, as a big Drake fan i had so so many lyrics I could have done, i finally decided to go for a lyric from Fireworks from the thank me later album.

There are about 50 lyrics i could have done for this song, but i settled on this one

Drizzy Drake

I’m just such a gentleman, you should give it up for me, look at how i’m placing all my napkins and my cutlery.

The Luckiest Day… #tdc1376

The luckiest day, wake up around 9am (seize the day and all that) jump out of bed, the showers free, 10am, ready to leave the house, quick stop in one stop to get a quick scratchcard, i’ve got my lucky 20p in my wallet (i once won a £100 on a scratchy, and have kept the 20p ever since) win a 50 quid, into William Hill, pop £50 on Liverpool to Beat United, with a Jordan Henderson hat-trick, all three scored down the kop end, Odds of 35000/1. And you can clearly see where the story is going from here…
