I had fun making this userbar, because I had to do a little more creative work than usual, and I used an effect I haven't used before, a flashing background:

z1_European_Football_Fan.gif
 
The flashing-background effect is simple, but effective, IMO. It's achieved by simply alternating two different backgrounds in the flashing part of the frame sequence in the animation.
 

I got the 6-frame animated-GIF European Union flag online:

2znvq86.gif

 

Added in Edit: For some reason the flag doesn't move when posted by itself. I hosted it on two different sites with the same static result. But you can see it waving in the flag/ball animation below.

Added in Edit the next day: I checked out the post before I logged on, and the flag was waving. As soon as I logged on, the flag stopped waving. I guess (?) I just have mysteriously magical telekinetic powers. (So, better be nice to me! -- lol)

 

Then I got a football (soccer ball) transparent PNG online:


z3_soccer_ball_resized.gif
 
I converted its image to a six-frame animation by simply rotating the ball 60 degrees clockwise five times successively. The original ball plus the five rotations made 6 frames. Then I reduced the size of the ball and pasted each frame on the corresponding frame in the animated EU flag, positioning the ball in the middle of the circle of stars, to get the image I scrolled in the animation:

z4_flag_ball_revised.gif
 
I was glad the soccer ball had shadows on it, because as the ball rotated, the rotating shadows tied in nicely with the shadows in the waving flag. That made it appear more like the ball was actually a part of the flag, or that it was being tossed around by the waving flag.
 

Here are some more userbars I made using the flashing background effect:


z5_Forsaken_Wastes_Player.gif





z6_Jeff_flash_no_name.gif





z7_Jeff_flash_w_name.gif

My last post on this thread was well over a month ago.

Most of my time since then has been spent looking at a picture of the Higgs boson that I found online.

Afer some serious concentratin' and thinkin', I wrote the text on this picture:

Hi, jaclaz:
 
The Fun Police will get you for sure for that one, for inciting a riot!....a laugh riot!
 
As far as your sharp sense of humidor....[or should that be humor (?)]....no one can hold a candle to you.
 
Good thing, 'cause I surely don't want you to get burned!
 
I'm gonna post your picture here in full view, so that I can refer back to it later instead of having to navigate your spoiler minefield. I'm always a little apprehensive -- (he's the son of his father, BIG APPREHENSIVE, by the way) -- when I open them, because I'm afraid you might show me something that I might not want to see, like Howdy Doody and Pee Wee Herman naked on Broadway during rush hour on a stormy day, in the midst of lightning flashes there, striking the top of the Eiffel Tower, before it was moved to Mississippi to replace the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which fell over laughing at one of your earlier jokes.

Example_Higgs_boson.jpg

I tried to follow the logic, but I've only gotten as far as the first word, "Do", in the upper left of the graphic. It will take me some time to fully understand the full quantum-mechanical, metaphysical, multiversal, fractal, string-theory-analytical, multi-dimensional lessons in that word. In a few months of pondering "Do", I'll be able to move my attention to the second word, "you". And I shall continue on this quest for the complete knowledge that this graphic presents. But I'm going to amend it, so that, at the bottom it will have feedback loops/arrows taking me back to the very beginning. I feel comfortable in doing this, because, ultimately I'll be getting nowhere in this exercise, a sentiment which very well characterizes all the other endeavors in my life. Thank you so much, jaclaz for providing me my life's work with your graphic. How may I repay you? Perhaps by feeding your pet Italian aardvark, Mussolini, a can of Alpo? I'm so glad you named him Mussolini instead of Benito, because I truly love the way my tongue tickles the roof of my mouth when I say, "Mussolini". Try it, and you'll see what I mean.


When it comes to humidor, I am your student, always saying, " Yes, my Italian master, I truly dig what you be sayin' " !!!

In my music video post at http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/5150-what-are-you-listening-to/?p=1081259

I presented the song, "Nasty Girl", by Vanity 6, in which the primary lyric is:

"I'm living in a fantasy in my own little nasty world."

 

Since I tend to follow my whims -- (which I'm sure comes as a surprise to everyone who has read my nonsense brilliant posts) --

I followed the whim to incorporate the graphic I made in the last post with my MSFN avatar, and I title it:

"I'm living in a finisy in my own little nasty world."

An alternate title is:

"I'm living in a finisea in my own little nasty world.",

because my avatar kinda looks like it is in a sea of finis.

Just choose the title you like best.

But please don't tell me, 'cause I absolutely don't care about, and don't choose to know, anything you might have on your mind.

Just choose the title you like best, if you want to, of course, but keep it to yourself, and just go on about your business.

And leave me alone, in torment, to suffer in a fantasy/finisy/finisea in my own little nasty world.

Thanks in advance.

In my avatar, I've been hiding behind the white mask of anonymity, where no one can see me as I truly am, in the way that I look in person, living in a fantasy in my own little nasty world.

 

So, for the first time ever, I'm going to strip away that mask to show the world how I actually look, naked and afraid to ever fantasize, always having an extremely objective grip on Reality.

 

Here's larryb123456 unmasked:

 

Finisy_unmasked.jpg
 

As usual, please keep your opinions to yourself, because I don't have the slightest interest in them, and just go on about your business, as long as it isn't funny business,

because then you'd be encroaching on my territory.

Shame, shame ,shame on you, bptzxbpt!

 

Can't you follow directions?

 

What part of "keep your opinions to yourself, because I don't have the slightest interest in them" did you not understand?

 

I think you're just inciting me to show more of my ignorance brilliance stupidity nonsense incomprehension nastiness unawareness inexperience nastiness uneducatedness mindless unconversantness Lochness witless unschooledness  nastiness unculturedness nessnessnessnessnessness.....[fill in your own term here, 'cause I ain't got time for this nonsense].

 

But I ain't gonna fall for your evil scheme, so I'm not gonna make this post.

 

If anything is appearing before your eyes now, it's because you are living in a fantasy in your own little nasty world!

I made this graphic to honor my friend ROTS

[proof: http://www.msfn.org/board/user/362362-rots/, and it seems that I'm his only friend, BTW, and why?, I have no idea.]

whom I admire for his linguistic poetry describing his viewpoints and his courage to forge ahead in his expositories

in the midst of all that ......................... love he often gets from other MSFN members.

 

For the background on this graphic, I chose a tsunami.

Why? It just seemed appropriate for some reason,

and I chose not to delve too deeply into the possible implications.

 

http://postimage.org/'>ROTSA_RUCK.jpg
 

That's in Japanese, BTW.

 

Translated into English, it reads:

 

Lots,

Lots,

Lotsa

Luck !!!

 

finis,

which is poetry-speak for: "Let's wrap this sh*t up, and get the hell outta Dodge!"

bptzxbpt, you've finally goaded me into providing a picture of myself, so that your extreme curiosity in this area will be satiated. If you don't know what that word means, either look it up yourself or remain clueless. I don't have time to educate you. After all, I made your avatar and the present version of your signature. Ain't that enough of my valuable time for you to waste?

 

The reason I haven't posted the true photo of myself is that you'd see it and indubitibly realize that I'm much better looking than you. I know there's no doubt about that. I know that you think you look like Adonis and you pay your wife exorbitant sums of money each month to call you that and to stroke your humongous ego. But it's now time to face Reality, and know the truth that you ain't as handsome as I am. My picture below proves that. So, grow up, bptzxbpt, and quit living in a fantasy in your own little nasty world.

@jaclaz;
 
In my earlier post at http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/152748-custom-avatars-and-signatures/?p=1092023, I stated, in my description of how I loathe love your sh*tty witty commentary:
When it comes to humidor, I am your student, always saying, " Yes, my Italian master, I truly dig what you be sayin' " !!!
 
A pictorial representation of my dislike and total disgust gratitude for our unfortunate and miserable wonderful relationship is given below:

This post is a follow-up to my last post concerning my Italian fiend friend, jaclaz, who likes animated GIFs.

 

I made this simple 10-frame animation from the one in my last post.

On the right side, I simply horizontally flipped the frames of the emoticon on the left side.

In the middle I used an image of an explosion that I found online and modified.

And I made the explosion image visible just in every other frame to make it appear more like it was an actual explosion.

 

My idea was to give a little visual interpretation to the concept of two people having difficulty communicating, as if they lived in two parallel universes.

Hence the reversed "Yes!", reading "!seY".

As for the text in the middle, I have absolutely no idea what it means.

Pee Wee Herman, Howdy Doody, and Mickey Mouse thought it up in a joint confab, and since I always follow all of their directions, I added it, without questioning their wisdumb.

We all have people in our lives who sometimes upset us greatly. In my case, it's my Italian fiend friend, jaclaz. I wish he could be more like his pet aardvark, Mussolini, who is always in a very pleasant mood, especially when I feed him a can of Alpo. Perhaps I should feed jaclaz a can of Alpo every now and then. The thought of that makes me smile.
 
But I digress. I know you all are shocked, because that's the first time you have witnessed that.
 
To stumble continue onward:
 
I made a little flag apropos to those [in our lives who sometimes upset us greatly.] Note: So that you can understand your feeling of deja vu, I bracketed the phrase from my first paragraph that is causing that feeling in you, if, indeed, you have any feelings. But I highly doubt that since this is a web site for computer geeks.
 
To stumble continue onward, in a deja vu again kind of mindset:

I made a little flag apropos to those [in our lives who sometimes upset us greatly]:
 
Flag.jpg
 
I based it on the U.S. flag. It has 7 red stripes and the "star field" terminates at the bottom of the 4th red stripe, just like in the U.S. flag. But I made the colors a little disgusting. Why? Because I felt like it! Case closed on that! If you have any criticisms relating to the fact that the star field doesn't have 50 emoticons or that the aspect ratio doesn't match that of the U.S. flag, please keep those criticisms to yourself, because I absolutely don't care about anything you might have to say. I have made this statement to you many times before, as you well know. Just leave me alone to suffer, in torment, along with my fiend, bphlpt, living in a fantasy in my own little nasty world. Thanks in advance.

Added in Edit: I just want to add to this post, three acronyms: LOL, LOL, LOL, which stand for, respectively,

Today, I Googled my name, Larry, just to see what would pop up. I was very gratified to see that the dictionary definition of "larry" was totally correct and 100% accurate in all the important particulars:

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=larry

 

I fully suspect that my friends fiends dencorso, bptzxbpt, and jaclaz will not accept this definition.

Why? They're just jealous, that's all.

Hello, everyone:

 

This post, made today, February 6, 2016 and my last post in this thread, made exactly one year ago, on February 6, 2015, bracket a time span of exactly one year.

 

The union of this post and my last post, then, to me, represents something of an art performance, in that it denotes and characterizes an aspect of the nebulous -- (collectively-agreed-upon objective in nature, while being mysteriously individually experientially subjective in nature) -- concept of "time."

 

Thank you all for being part of my art performance by not posting anything on this thread that would lead to my responding and thereby terminating my art performance before I had planned to end it, today, February 6, 2016.

 

Sincerely,

Larry, AKA larryb123456

 

A simple graphic I made to celebrate the completion of my one-year-long art performance:
