The .Gif Friday Post No.243 – Dogmail + Cat Love + Pwnage

Friday, 31 August 2012

[Found here, here and here, with a bonus just because it's awesome.]

The .Gif Friday Post No.242 – CYRIAK

Friday, 24 August 2012

We’ve been posting Cyriak Harris‘ odd .gif animations occasionally for years without knowing that he was the original source. I never connected them with the videos that Bunkarina turned me onto (like “Cows and Cows and Cows“). The guy is brilliantly talented and one of the most entertaining animation artists I’ve seen since Terry Gilliam.

All three .gifs from Cyriak’s jawdropping website: here, here and here.

The .Gif Friday Post No.241 – Dance Hard, Piano Cola, Foul Tip

Friday, 17 August 2012

[Found here, and here. The middle one's mine based on this image.]

The .Gif Friday Post No.240 – Pondering Sloth, Godzilla Madhouse & Catbox WTF

Friday, 10 August 2012

[Found here, here and here.]

We modified all three animations. We don’t take credit for resizing, only for looping/reversing/stitching and other modifications, and we link to the sources where we found them.

[I stole the top one from here and messed with it. 2nd & 3rd found here & here. Tip o' the Tarboosh to OddMan. ]

The .Gif Friday Post No.235 – 3 Polaroid LOLS & The First .GIF

Friday, 29 June 2012



16 June was the 25th Birthday of GIFs, according to Fast Company. We missed it, but we’re going to make up for the oversight.

“Choosy programmers choose GIF,” quipped Steve Wilhite of CompuServe, after he created the GIF image compression file format in 1987. It allowed for sequenced upload delays necessary for embedded animations. There’s a nice history of the now ubiquitous .gif on Daily Dot.

Animations above via Cari Vander Yacht. Tip o’ the tarboosh to OddMan for the GIF Birthday link, and here’s the Tacky Raccoons GIF Archive that includes Bunk’s Originals.

UPDATE: In the interview with Daily Dot (linked above) Steve Wilhite said that he thought the first .GIF animation was of an airplane. This is one of the first that I ever captured, several computers ago:

Here it is, all blowed up, in 5 frames of pixellated glory:

Is this the first .gif animation Wilhite was referring to? I don’t know, but it’s a contender.

[Update 2: Fixed broken link to Daily Dot.]

The .Gif Friday Post No.234 – How To Walk & Victorian Cheesecake

Friday, 22 June 2012

   

Top .gif is actually three .gifs (1-2-3-2-1), modified and animated from this image. Bottom two lenticulations were created from a couple of Victorian era stereoscopic photos that I lifted from here.

[Update: I found the link to the Victorian bimbo pics at Gimcrack. Sorry for the oversight, nursem.]
