Write an ice weasel tribute birthday poem for @grantpotter’s birthday!

Show some appreciation for Grant Potter who made possible DS106 Radio more than four years ago.

    Twittering their frosty whiskers
    Tunneling the network burrow
    An ice weasel weaves and friskers
    To fix when it needs it, the radio.

    Yes, we thank them for being so clever,
    Their mad skills make us totter.
    A DS106 radio we'd have never
    Were it not for Grant Potter.
Add your poem

room at the top
wish i could broadcast
but my version of OS
won’t support the new nicecast

memory lane
of visions long past
when this academe
was a world made of glass

people and places
have transpired since
of meaningful higher ed
i’ve now had a glimpse

it can be a nice place
full of expression and play
and super nice people
who will find a way

to fix up the radio
through thick and through thin
and keep us all happy
no more feeling grim

so here’s to grant potter
and all the fine folks
on #ds106radio
education with hope.

Waited all year

We waited all year;
each day looking far and near;
but have no fear;
finally, the ice weasel is here.

Chipping away;
until he makes it through;
to finally say;
Happy Birthday @grantpotter.

You turned me on

You turn me on. I’m a radio.
A magical mystery tour takes me 2000 light light years from home,
There are no plastic people here, you just give power to the people,
So we rock around the clock, around the whole wide world.
There is teh radio … and real life,
Take care the road you choose,
Stay a super furry animal.

¬°Que Viva el Pinche Ice Weasel!

Four years, still spinning
Fast, loose, and out of control.
All ways listening.

We couldn’t have done it without your expertise.
You created this all without a crease.
You’re a smart little one, ya little weasel.
You did it all without an easel.

Happy birthday to the one and only,
my wish for you is that you don’t spend it lonely!
Be free little one and experience the rest of your journey
For you are the one who made this possible for learning.

A haiku for the birthday boy!

Grant Potter
Seeing the server totter
Dispatches ice-weasels forthwith
Whilst playing every musical instrument that exists

Happy Birthday Grant Potter!

What a cute little ice weasel he is
Grant Potter is a radio wiz
We thank him for his creation
Because of him the class radio is a sensation

repairs are no trouble
he will have them done on the double
So here’s a happy birthday to you
A very smart weasel its true

Given that his name is Grant Potter, I didn’t take long figuring what to do to celebrate our awesome DS106 secret agent’s birthday! Hopefully my fellow Gryffindors will appreciate my punny-ness :).

Potter is our King,

Potter is our King,

He didn’t let the virus in

Potter is our King!

Potter can fix anything,

The microphones, they never ring,

That’s why the radio beautifully sings.

Potter is our King!

Happy Birthday, King Grant! DS106ers salute you.

You’re a Wizard, Mr. Potter

You’re a wizard, Mr. Potter.
But not quite like Harry
You created ds106 radio
which makes me quite merry.

The ice weasels are smart
and they fix what is broken
Mr. Potter created the class radio
from which noir drama is spoken.

We thank you for your creation
It’s quite fun to listen to
I didn’t know I follow you on twitter…

Ice Weasel and Grant Potter

There once was a furry ice weasel
Who had a peculiar skill
He didn’t do paintings with an easel,
but fixed radios till he had his fill.

One day he met Grant Potter
who made ds106 radio
“You’ll do much better than an otter,
Will you fix the radio’s audio?”

From that day on you can hear
Ice weasel working until he’s blue
So let these words ring out clear:
Grant Potter, happy birthday to you!

Dear Mr. Weasel

Dear Mr. Weasel

With your hair as white as snow
Your little thought bubble
All aglow.

For when you create
(On a daily basis)
Laughter and praise a-lights,
(Except from problem minxes.)

But pay no mind to the haters,
They’ll only bring you down,
Just keep on rocking to it,
My little weasel pal.

Happy Birthday Grant Potter
