Clickbait Daily Create

Blarg. I chose the picture I wanted to use before I went for a headline. I just couldn’t pass up the cats in party hats album I found on flickr. This cat’s name is Shakespeare and the photo is apparently from his 6th birthday party (7 years ago). Happy birthday to mew, Shakespeare! ๐Ÿˆ

Mer-woes.

Today’s daily create was… demanding… I saw it when it was first posted and had no idea what to do for it. I might have gone a little too outside the box (or outside the assignment), so I’m kinda feeling like my mermaid statue sitting on the dock right now, thinking “what have I done…?” Blech. It was fun to play with layers to put Brooklyn on the horizon though.

The daily anxiety

Today’s daily create: “I am nervous.” Me: a shivering chihuahua. A decorative sunken ship at the bottom of a fish tank with “nervous wreck” painted on the hull. Both things I thought of AFTER replying to the Daily Create. Facepalming myself into oblivion right now.

Logical fallacies – but maybe the hat really is cool.

This week’s final Daily Create is all about logical fallacies. I jumped on “bandwagon” (har har har) and chose to use critically endangered animals as the subjects. It’s hard to say “everyone is doing it” when there aren’t a lot of people in the first place. Also, that’s just not a good reason to explain why something is popular. But to be fair, I’d totally wear the melon hat.

The hat may very well be cool, but saying “all the orangs are wearing it” is not a good argument, little dude.

Peace on a small scale

Today’s daily create asks for us to contribute to a peace playlist. I tried to think of peace songs that hadn’t been submitted already, but came up short. Then I realized that I had lots of ideas for songs that were narrations of moments of personal peace – something I think is just as important. Vashti Bunyan‘s music and vocals are so dreamy in the first place, and the song itself is the story of a man coming home to a home and family that he’s missed dearly. I love it.

Barack’s big secret… (clickbait title ahoy)

You thought he was cool before. You followed him on Snapchat. You follow him on Twitter. Michelle, too. When you got an email with his or Michelle’s signature, you kept it, and you still have it. Is it just me? But now we find out… he’s been chillin with us the whole time!!! NICE!!!

Fancy schmancy lattes

Today’s TDC was all about ridiculous lattes… I’ve never actually had a latte that was decorated, even with the regular art that looks like a fern. Now all I want is a latte with a pokemon on it. That’s the ONLY kind of latte I want.

I used a generator from Photofunia to make this. I tried to do it in Paint.net… but I realized I had been spending something like 20 minutes trying to get Komala to look like he was made of foam before throwing in the towel.
