Hello. I am Don Rickles (at least as far as tumblr is concerned).
Today this blog got some attention from a few people I really love and a lot of people I don’t know. I can’t figure out how this ball got rolling but I’m appreciative (I had around 40 followers when I went to bed and have over 100 now, so my sense of self-worth is now over twice as big as it used to be) and I think that makes this as good a day as any to properly explain the garbage I produce.
The basic idea came out of a lot of the frustrations I had with how myself and tumblr make GIFs. I’m sure you’ve all seen GIFs that show an entire train derailment unfold and follow it up with the movie Jumanji in its entirety. To achieve this, it will look like shit. The inverse of this is a beautiful GIF that lasts about as long as it takes for a character to get out a single word or move their arm across the frame. The teenagers who make these GIFs are apparently incapable of just looking at still images.
Listen, I hear you. You’re telling me these are petty complaints. I know. They super are. Almost as petty as the entire internet gathering to debate how you pronounce GIF (Giraffics Interface Format). So, I decided I could add some art to the shitty GIFs by adding some shit to the arty GIFs. Terrible Quality takes images and scenes that are recognizable to fans of some larger work (generally film and television) and removes everything but the basic building blocks.
I promise I don’t take this blog as seriously as this post might seem. In the end these are just moving pictures that make me smile and remind me of 8-bit graphics. If they look interesting, stick around. If they don’t, stick around anyways. My ego can’t handle too many of you leaving at once.
Before I go, I’ll shamelessly say it again. You can also find me at I Am Don Rickles.
