Pants.

Hi,

Pants. They come in lots of lovely colours, patterns and even some strange fabrics… But more to the point, they’re my favourite thing to say the name of when something goes wrong. What I’m trying to say is, rather than going s*** or f*** when something goes the opposite way to which I would have liked, I say PANTS! You may think that this is rude to pants but in no way am I hating on or dissing pants. No. In no way at all. Where would we be without them? In a sticky place, probably, but that’s not the point.

The point is I’m having to say it on a regular basis because our little Dell Inspiron 1501 has gone and kaput itself (kaput is basically f***ed in a German kind of way… sort of). Well, to be fair it fell backwards off of the little upturned shopping basket that it usually sits on (long story, and no, I’m not a tramp). What’s happened is the screen has cracked itself. Now if you own one of these laptops or you bothered to look up Dell Inspiron 1501, you’re probably thinking, ‘cracked? I didn’t know plastic screens could crack…’. Well, you’re right, but it’s a different type of crack. It’s that the little (minuscule, really) lights that make up the screens pixels (look really closely at this word and you can see it’s made up of loads of little dots…pixels) have been smashed and have gone a bit loopy. They can’t display what they want to so basically half (diagonally as well) of my laptop screen is out of use. Haywire. Nutty. Bonkers. You get the picture… (or do you?)

So what I’m trying to tell you, as softly as I can, is that I wont be making a single graphic for at least another month until we get a new laptop and I get Photoshop installed on it…and all of my Photoshop brushes…and patterns…and loads of other stuff.

Feel sorry for me.

Now.

You know you want to.

Maybe you don’t.

Maybe you need to be taught to.

Taught to feel sorry for me.

I’m am more off of track than ever before.

It feels good.

And like I’m losing you and every other reader I ever had.

Stopping the sentence a line thing and moving on, there’s not actually that much to tell or write to you about…except Apps.

Yes, my iPod’s still in good condition, apart from the little scratches…

You like recommendations of Apps, don’t you? Well, I’ll give some, even if you don’t like them… so there.

Lets start with the one and almighty… (drum-roll, please)… Tap Tap Revenge 4! Yes, it’s out, and pretty much the same as ever before. I never really liked it as it’s a total rip off to buy music and clothes for an online avatar which nobody gives a damn what’s wearing, so I’m not sure why I’m recommending it too, but millions of people seem to love it so I’m guessing you will. If you don’t know what it is then go on the App Store and look at the Top 25 FREE Apps. It’s in the top 5. Get it. Or not. Your choice.

Secondly, I’ll recommend you an App I actually like. The developers called it DoodleKart. It’s another one of those doodle-theme based games and it’s great. You’re a little racer guy and you can even draw your own karts! It’s awesome! Here’s a few of mine…

Yeah, I admit, none of them are cars, but they look so cool in a line-up before a race. The two at the bottom are empty slots, or as I see them, space for more madness! Meh Heh Heh!

NEXT!

Well, this App is unique. In a way that there’s no other App with the same graphics or name. Not so unique, really, then, is it?

It’s called Reckless Racing and it’s awesome. At first, for some reason, I saw it and thought it was just another failed attempt at another good racing game. But I was wrong, it wasn’t a failed one. It was a success. Oh, for God sake, why do I have to do these stupidly long intros to everything? GGRR…

Basically, you’re a little 4×4 and you’re racing against some other crazy nutters in army vehicles, tractor units and buggies. It’s so fun, there’s a lake and puddles, crates, other trucks and even some jumps. In the full version (I only have lite, @Stralis33CP has the full version) there’s even a cliff and you get to race as the other cars and jump of the cliff. Or if you’re like me or Stralis33, you’ll shunt other racers off of the cliff. That’s much more fun. 😉

I think that’s kind of it from me, although I do have one more cool thing for you.

Lately, I’ve got totally addicted to Deadmau5 (pronounced Dead-Mouse) the DJ-mixer-guy based in Toronto. He wears this awesome mask when he does gigs, take a look:

It also flashes to the beat of the music, it has lights in the mouth and eyes. How epic can you get? I’ve heard he even gets payed by his agent $1000 per gig just to wear it! He always takes the offer.

What I’m leading to is a little gift because you’ve been so good coming to my site! Your FREE little gift is three Deadmau5 songs, and I mean FREE. I’ve put my top three favourites from Deadmau5 into the gift (Strobe (Radio Edit), Arguru (Original Mix) and Faxing Berlin). To download them right click the links below and click ‘Save Target As’ or ‘Save Link As’. I’ve also made a little .ZIP that has all three compressed if you want ’em all!


Strobe (Radio Edit)

Arguru (Original Mix)

Faxing Berlin

All Three .ZIP Folder

(Note: For the .ZIP file don’t right click, just click the link and it should work.)

Hope you liked your FREE gift! Have a very Merry Christmas! I may come back and give another gift before the 25th. You should hope I do… 😉

Bye!

PS: Tell me: Deadmau5 or David Guetta?

2 Weeks…Again

Hey, Guys,

Well, how’s it going? Should be really good because I’m about to post the long post I promised in my previous postette from school during lunch break (it’s cold out side). I’ve got quite a few graphics, possibly some App recommendation and a little something else…?

Let’s start with the graphics, shall we?

So, one day at school, me and Wimper were talking, and he came up with the idea of a spoof. This would be the first ever spoof of a video game, and it was going to be awesome. It was going to be called, Call of Fruity: Green Ops. Get it? Call of Duty, Call of Fruity? Basically, it’s about this guy who becomes a sort of eco warrior kind of person who goes around killing and taking down evil companies like Shell, BP, Disney, etc. He could have things like pineapples as grenades and possibly even bio-degradable bullets made from highly compressed grass, leaves, old enemies and other vegetation.

Now you’re probably wandering what has this got to do with graphics, right. Well, I thought I would make a kind of advert/graphic/cover for the game in Photoshop, and here’s what I turned out like:

C’mon, you have to like it! I know the whole grass thing did kind of fail but you have to remember that I did this entirely from FREE photos I got from Google Images, I didn’t have any access to un-watermarked stock photos.

Surprisingly, I’ve just realised that I’ve hardly made any graphics in the 2 or more weeks since the last post, but I have made a few Club Penguin graphics for people and I have a new Twitter profile picture. Here it is!

Yes, I know, how could I have saved it as a .GIF image, but there is a very valid reason. I originally made it as an animated picture with the word Dapizz slowly bouncing on the spot. However, Twitter recently removed the ability to have an animated Twitter picture. You may think I’m wrong, because people sometimes still have them now, but I’m am correct. The people that had one before get to keep theirs and I can’t have one! When I realised this, I opened the animation in Photoshop again, saved it as a normal .PNG, but the .GIF had already harmed it so it was just too late! MOO HOO HOO!

Moving on, the last graphic for today:

This was a header I made for this guy on Twitter, PC35. I made it for FREE, something which is practically un-heard of in my Twitter neighbourhood (if you can call it that) and then guess what he did! He A) Never used the header and B) Certainly didn’t give me any credit. I therefore watermarked it. I bet you can’t find where, though. 😉

Now, what shall I talk about?

Apps.

Pretty awesome things, huh?

Then I’ll recommend some to you! 😀

Let’s start with Bike Rider. This is a little game where you have to jump and double jump at the right moment to stop a little stick figure motocross bike rider guy from falling down a bottomless pit…with a bottom. There’s also two other buttons on the game screen but I haven’t really worked out what hey actually do. It’s FREE in the App Store and it’s a great little time waster if your a bus waiting kind of person.

The iTunes Best Album and Song 2010 Voting App. This little App lets you vote for what song and what album should win the iTunes Best Album and Song Competition 2010. Basically you select you top three favourite albums from the top 20 best selling albums of 2010 then you select your favourite top 3 songs from the top 20 best selling songs of 2010. To submit your votes you simply enter your first name, last name, email address and any additional comments you want to add then your free to delete the App! I hope Pass Out – Tinie Tempah will at least get in the top 3! 🙂

It sounds so lame I know but since my last proper post I haven’t really downloaded any more good Apps.

Very lame.

Want some news? Well, I’ve got seriously addicted to RWJ (Ray William Johnson) who does the awesome =3 video reviewing show on YouTube every day! I can only be bothered to post every other week nearly! Lame again.

I am lame.

Poo.

I wrote this post in two parts. I did up to the header graphic in the morning and I had planned out what I was going to post about later on in the post but now, in the afternoon, I’ve forgotten. It was something really cool as well. Don’t you hate that. When you think of something really cool to either do when you get home from something or maybe something to blog about then you finish what your doing, like going to the loo or something, and then you’ve forgotten it! AAHH!

Well at least Flo Rida, Ke$ha and Apple are keeping my alive. Flo Rida and Ke$ha for Right Round, Apple for the earphones and iTunes. Perfect.

I think I should go now before you witness me die via words seeing as I probably will when the song ends!

So tell me, people: Do you like Right Round (Feat. Ke$ha) – Flo Rida?

Dapizz – 😀

MOO!


Yerk!

Heya, Peoples,

Well. I guess there’s been a lot of time between now and the last time I posted on here, but the time has come to post.

Did that even make sense?

Probably not.

Well, more to the point, I won’t have any graphics or anything for you guys in this post. Reason of this being that I’m actually posting this from the library at my school during lunch break. And the other reason, this one being the reason I haven’t posted for over two (maybe 3 even) weeks, is because I have been absolutely addicted to Happy Wheels which is this really, quite disturbing blood-and-gore weirdo game.

I know what you’re thinking. Why am on this site? HELP! Well, there’s a reason…I think. I just had deja-vu. LOL. I’ve gotten off of track. I will try to focus on this strange, slightly crazy/boring post.

GTG, end of lunch!

MOO!
