I’ve been posting a lot of garbage animated gifs on here, essentially just reveling in the chaos of what can be made.

After reading Alan’s post I decided to publish something a little more serious and a little more in line with the spirit of the original challenge. The movement is minimal. The eyes convey just how freaked out Arnold is at this moment as the alien climbs right next to him.

This scene is from Predator. That was back in 1987. I remembered the eyes, although it took me a while to find the scene on the internet. In my head I actually confused it some with this Rambo scene.

Anyway, I love the creepy feel and think it’s closer to the original spirit of the challenge and the If We Don’t Remember Me site.

    I love it, but I can;t say this animated GIF is better than this one:

    Which remains the pinnacle for me to date.

    Dont paint me as saying there is but one way to do an assignment based on animated gifs. What you have been cranking out is truly gigantic. What I meant is there are all kinds of ways to create an animation task, and we need to be clever, or scoped in what we ask people to do. Otherwise, its a return to mailboxes and shit.

      I didn’t mean to paint anyone or anything (including Jim’s fence). “Garbage” was probably too strong a word, but it’s my own stuff so I wasn’t too worried about it. I was just having fun. Figuring out what made the loops work best etc. I think I understand and agree with exactly what you wrote. Your particular post just gave me a little additional motivation to look back on what I’d written originally and actually make a gif in that spirit.

    Hey Alan,

    Why you so circumspect and thoughtful man? This is education, no one really cares what happens, they just want you to take out more loans 🙂
