So far, 13 people have completed this assignment.

So there is a web site on Tumblr that @jimgroom said where everybody who wants to can make a GIF in a week with a topic that the guy posts and @jimgroom said it should be an assignment but he didn't make it one so I did and now everybody can do a GIF challenge each week by looking to see what the GIF Fight! is for the week. 


For an example see the Vader GIFs made by some ds106 people: See  jimgroom's and cogdog's and Rockylou22's and mine, iamTalkyTina's. 



This is an okay kind of fight for Friends because it doesn't hurt and it is making GIFs which is a fun thing for Friends to do together.

Well, everybody was doing sparkle clothes for this GIFfight, so I decided to do sparkle heads.

Getting In Touch.

Gif Fight means a page where you can find every two weeks an inspiration for an animated gif. The “fight” may mean that it is a challenge to compare yourself to other participants’ creations. Still, the challenge which was designed for the headless ds106 course of 2013 makes it difficult to …

Vader Dialectics

My giffify Darth Vader: attempt 2. I’m calling it “Thus spake, Vaderthustra” gif. Vader only talks to himself. My first attempt, I called “Vader’s Flipped Classroom”, but now it gets more serious when a shaft of light from the stars serves up his own talking head.
