Learn & Play @ CML Thing#10 Image Generators


While this is a post for CML's Learn&Play, I guarantee non CML folk will want to see this. That's right - of all the "generators" I played around with I just couldn't resist the Read poster. I've been trying to find something to do with this picture for more than 20 years. It's a good fit - don't you think. Generate your own here.

This whole exercise also reminded me of the last time I used an image generator, again some 20 years ago at King's Island that cost an arm and a leg.

I think it was worth it. What do you think?

Good times, good times...

I also spent some time on The Generator Blog. To me this would be a nice site to visit on a rainy day, after you had completed every chore, washed your hair twice, walked the dog six miles, and had absolutely nothing else to do. Don't misunderstand. I'm not saying it's a bad thing to do. It's just not my thing to do. Alright I admit it. I was very disappointed that the link to get my porn star name didn't work.

I did find one link there I had some fun with - an acronym creator, i.e. a handy tool to have when you need a technical explanation during the course of your customer service day - just kidding. I plugged in a few examples. Jimmer stands for Joint Interchangeable Micro-Mail Equipment Router. James stands for Journaling Array Modular Expansion Storage. My favorite though is created from the first initials of my family member's names Joined Architecture Known Mail Disk.

I spent a few minutes at Letter James, and I had already spent some time at FD Toys as part of the flickr exercise.

Whew - that was a lot of playing wasn't it?

Never seen a James Dean movie all the way through and I think Judd Nelson is just annoying.

The pose and outfit were all were what the girl I was dating at the time "told me to do."

One of many resume pics for my "actor phase" though so you guys aren't too far off.

This is the best picture ever Jim. The library should have these everywhere.
