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!

MOO!

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!


2 Weeks!

Hello, Guys!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in two weeks but I’ve been very busy. Forgetting the busy part of my revious sentence, I think you’re fully entitled to some rich graphics, App reviews and an overall, nice, good, old, long post. Forget ‘old’. (silence for a few seconds)

So, as you know, I’m reasonably into Club Penguin, on and off, and, as you also know, I’m really into Twitter now. I was hanging around Twitter a while back and I noticed there was a guy with an embarrassingly bad Twitter profile picture (have you seen my new Gravatar?) so I sent him a tweet. He then asked me if I would make him a Club Penguin cheat site banner for his website. I said yes and guess what I did?

I made one:

Yes it is an animated .GIF! I love them. You can get some really bad ones which, I know, just make you cringe badly, but when I use .GIF animation (BTW I do hate to boast) I think you usually get pretty good results! It was supposed to be a Christmas banner so that’s the reason for the tree in background. WOOT! Christmas! Oh, boy, do I love Christmas! However we mustn’t forget the true meaning of Christmas! No, especially if your not even religious! I find it so annoying and heartbreaking to see little children spending their entire Christmas sitting on a hard wooden bench all day listening to some under enthusiastic life-less guy talk about some think they probably don’t even understand! BTW I’m talking about little children that should be opening presents and playing with their mates in the snow instead of sitting in a cold church all day. I can get a little off track some times so I better focus back on the post. Yes. Focus.

You in need of some more graphics, huh? I won’t disappoint you:

I was experimenting with Photoshop CS5 when I was in a bad mood but now I look back it wasn’t actually that bad so I though I’d upload it! More:

A cool Dapizz button logo using a new font I’ll mention later! NEXT!

This was actually something I made quite a while ago but never remembered to upload or post! Now I see it again I really like it! (what can I say that isn’t NEXT or More?):

A nice new idea for a wallpaper, huh? I made a while ago too and never ot round to putting online so here it is. I’m making it my  wallpaper as soon as this post’s done! Moving on:

I know it’s not much to your interest but I made it and like it, it was my friend, Stralis33’s, idea and it’s his Club Penguin cheat site’s official logo!

As I said earlier, I will now give some thick, gloopy, App review. I don’t have a clue why an App review is in any way gloopy, but I think it sounds nice. I like gloop. Gloopy gloop. I’m going off track again. Focus. Apps.

Ok, one of the best Apps I’ve downloaded in the past month has to be Stick Wars. This is the very popular game that you also find on the Internet, where you have to defend, repair, and protect a wall of your castle. Loads of stick men (or bunnies if you download the ‘Bunny Hoard’ extra) are running at your wall with their fists, spears, pole, ramming carts, catapults, etc. You use repair men, archers, magicians, and your loyal, old finger to flick, blast, bomb and stab the attackers. There’s multiple levels to the game, obviously getting harder and harder. As well as the stick figures attacking your wall they’ve employed dragons and evil, giant stick figures to help them. You gain money with which you can buy prisons, magician schools, repair shops, archery training centres and loads more. With the prison you can pick up little stick men and drop them in your cage. After a few seconds they’re are ‘captured’ and your prison becomes free again for another person. With these ‘prisoners’ you can sent out people with bombs (suicide bombers basically) and groups of 3 with shields and spears. These people can also be trained to be archers, magicians and repair men. This App is FREE to celebrate the launch of Sick Wars 2 but it may be paid again by now. It should be in the Top 25 FREE Apps in the App Store. Have a look!

Secondly, I want to seriously recommend Trinity Interactive’s, 9 in 1, Action Heroes. It’s a series game where an App producer gets a load of their games together (9 in this case) and put them all in to on App to celebrate the end of the series. Like all Trinity Interactive games, this App takes a few years to load up, but when it’s loaded, it’s truly awesome! Trinity Interactive have put a little description together as well for each game. Here they are:

  • Jailbreaker (as I mentioned in my firs App recommendation post ever) : Jump and slide your way to freedom!
  • Hot Pursuit: Get ready for road rage!
  • Climber: Latch on and escape the ruins below!
  • Tomb Evader: Escape from the top of a collapsing pyramid!
  • Hell Flyer: Grab hold while you still can!
  • iKungfu Master: Increase your strength and defeat your enemies!
  • Hired Gun: Bring a steady hand and snipe the baddies!
  • Iron Commando: Drive back the alien invaders and their control ships!
  • Star Marine: Blast away the alien hordes!

Yes, all them need an exclamation mark after the description, according to the game.

I’m afraid that’s all the App recommending I can really do today so I’ll move on.

Fonts. I love them. You get fat ones, thin ones, italic ones, famous ones, and many more. They’re also so easy to download off of the Internet and a little extracting and moving about and, viola, you have a new typeface installed! Well, as mentioned earlier, I have a cool font to let you at today! Yes, a really cool font called Burbank which is used a lot on Club Penguin. In fact, it’s used everywhere. If you want a preview of it look at the shiny DP button above. I’ve lately started using it for practically everything, It just looks so good! Oh, BTW I also used it in the animated banner above! Click HERE to download it as a .ZIP. Oh, and just to let you know you need to use Burbank Big Wide on the black setting. Black means not normal, italic, bold, or bold italic, but black, extra bold, basically.

That’s pretty much it from me, so I guess I should say bye.

Isn’t that what your supposed to write? Bye.

Yes, I’ll go for that.

Bye! Dapizz – 😀

Cripes!

Hiya, People,

I’m really amazed today because I’ve just had a little look at our stats for this website and I’ve been literally gob-smacked! The results are both incredibly low and high (for different times, I have’t lost my marbles!)! Here’s a few numbers to look over and be amazed at:

  1. To start with I can tell you that the post two days ago with over 120 tags did get me exactly 70 hits! Isn’t that kind of strange yet unbelievably cool at the same time. I mean, the guess of 70 I put in the last post, I think, was, as I said, a totally random guess at a bit more than 58 (I saw it at 58 hits about an hour before).
  2. Secondly the monthly hit counter is quite amazing.
  • In June 2010 I collected a whopping…8 hits. How utterly crap!
  • More impressive was September 2010 with 394 hits. Space for improvement…
  • And this month, October, well it’s been great. This is only the 18th day of this month, about halfway, so we’ve got a load of head start to beat last month! C’mon guys!

Also today I have a load of really cool graphics things, perfect for iTouch wallpapers, mainly because they were created on an iPod Touch! Here they are:

Pretty awesome, huh. How your sitting there thinking how the f*** did he do that on an iPod without doing it pixel by ixel in a very advanced non-existant photo editing App. Well, I can tell you, I didn’t. Big surprise there! To make them I used an App called Meritum Paint. More info…

At the moment, Meritum Paint has to be my highest rated App on the entire store. It’s so easy to use and the iPad version must be a hell of an experience! OOHH…an iPad… Concentrate! As I was saying…UURR…Yeah…Well, that’s how I created these awesome images. What you do is drag your finger or toe or nose or whatever across the screen and you get loads of strange wisps come out of you into your devise! It’s incredible! You can have 3 settings to draw in too. There’s Normal where the strand things are just sharp, solid colour, then you have Neon, the setting I drew these pictures in and last and very much least we have Sci-Fi which is rubbish and not worth talking about! That’s basically it, go download it. It’s FREE!

Whilst I’m on the subject of Apps though I will tell you about another really cool App! It’s called Soosiz and its really cool. Here’s a picture:

Search it in the App store if you want more information but basically you walk and jump around loads of planets (from one to another) and let little people follow you (you’re supposedly saving them) and you finnish the level after defeating a few enemies and stuff. In the full version there’s loads of worlds and even bosses (big spiky balls) but you obviously have to pay for it (I got it for FREE because it was on the FreeAppADay scheme thingy.

Anyway, that’s all for today so bye.

Dapizz – 😀

MOO!

 


Nothing In Particular

Hiya, Guys,

I don’t really have much for you today, I’m afraid. I’ve been doing a lot of wallpaper sized graphic type things lately and I love all of them! They’re so cool (mostly)! If you want to look at them tough luck! No. I mean move your mouse to the top of the page and click the new link to the all new page, “1 Tonne of Graphics”. This is basically a page full of lots and lots of graphical Photoshop art. There’s iTouch wallpapers, PC wallpapers, random stuff and even a little bit more of random stuff! It’s incredible, nearly every image I’ve uploaded onto this blog since it started! Now, however much I may love constantly chatting about how amazing it is (it really is) you probably want to know more about the Apps I’ve downloaded and stuff like that. So that’s what I’ll talk about! 🙂

Recently I haven’ really been downloading many Apps. Recently means the past few months really! It just doesn’t have that magic about it anymore really! Sad, I know. Although, I do have a few I would like to recommend:

1.Heads Will Roll: Even though this App really does have a ridiculously stupid name, it’s not all that bad. It’s FREE (maybe I have the Lite version) and it’s basically lie Falldown. All you have to do is tilt your devis to roll the balls through each storey of lines, if you get what I mean. Falldown is very good and I love the neon theme but Heads Will Roll has the feature to upload and crop an image to use as your ball. Plus there’s a background, more colour, a load of other pre-loaded balls (that sounds very wrong), more than one ball at a time and more power-ups! Awesome!

2.Glow Fighter: Pretty simple but it’s cool, based on a neon theme like Falldown and you get to choose from two spaceships and then you get to shoot random shapes flying around in space! I’ve only played it once but it was great fun and I’ll be on it again soon!

3. I know it sounds lame but nothing else I’ve downloaded was really worth mentioning!

Oh, BTW I have finished The Annoying JavaScript now and it has 206 messages! Ho cool, or not? Anyway, a link maybe tomorrow because I’m being nagged to come off the laptop!

See ya!

Bye, Dapizz – 😀

PS: Does anyone know a good place to go for a FREE 100%-CSS-editable JavaScript-enabled web-host?


They Should Remove Title Feature

Hiya, The People,

I mean Peoples!

Anyway, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting for ages. I was away on a cycling holiday in Belgium! Chocolate! Yep, loads of it.

I had to go for a whole week without my iPod! How dangerous, I know! Luckily my iQuarium goldfish type fish, Fishy the fish, just survived the 6 day without being fed! He was practically white though, and the App did say something like ‘Your fish does have feelings, you know.’ Fair enough…but I’m afraid it doesn’t. It’s only a piece of digital code, right?

I’ve got back into Line Rider again now. This time though I am using the .SWF that I downloaded off of a site using the Firefox Plugin, Un-Plug. How ironic! It basically scans the page and lets you download all the media on that page that it can find, mostly flash video, embedded widget type things and .SWFs. I should hopefully be posting the official video of the New Era. After all my other Line Rider tracks were deleted I have started all over again, better then ever.

Sorry, can’t really be bothered to write anymore, want to get to my Line Rider. He has been sitting inside his snowy hut watching TV too long now and needs to get back on the slopes.

Bye, Dapizz – 😀

PS: Thanks for the 207 hits by the way. Keep them coming!


More Graffiti!

Hello, Graffiti Artists,

I know…another graffiti in the same day. The other one wasn’t totally today’s work, in fact it hardly was at all! Well this one was totally today’s. It is called GEB for a slightly (when you have seen it) obvious reason. The three letters can mean anything, not like BEL (Behind Enemy Lines) who is a totally awesome graffiti artist who I think is in in Sweden.

Anyway here is the picture. It has been edited in Photoshop a bit to get rid of loads of weird crap around the edges that I don’t want. I hope you like the final product:

Like It? I love it! Comment on the…UUMM…(‘on the matter.’ sounds way too formal).

If you are looking for a really cool App then head for FitIt. Basically you just have to put the different shapes of different colours into the square and hope they fit perfectly. If not restart or muddle them around. There are 4 difficulties (Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert), each with 25 levels (I think) and I’m finding it challenging and hard at the 15th or so Medium! It was FREE for  limited time, may not be anymore. Have a look!

Bye…

Dapizz – 😀


UUMM…Just Another Post, Really

Hi,

First things first. Here is an awesome video of a hacked version of the amazing popular online car game, Need For Madness. If you haven’t ever played it in your life you’re missing out on something. Quick, click here! NOW! Anyway, the video:

Cool huh? And whilst I’m on the NFM topic, there is a new version of it out; Need For Madness 2 (or Toooo !?, as the developer put it). The link to the game I put above is to this version, with toally new music, cars and updated tracks! Check It Out!

Moving On, on the App side of life (or mine anyway), Glow Puzzle Lite! This is basically a game where the player has to join a load of dots together with set lines without using a line more than once! Do you get what I mean? I hope so…here is a picture (it is not mine, credit to Google Images and wp.appadvise.com.)

And on top of that a picture of the App icon:

High Resolution (.PNG) as well! 😀

Also in the App News, Phone Secure, one of those iPhone/iPod Touch finger-print security Apps that are actually fake! This one is good though, it doesn’t scream and flash a huge picture of a Zombie’s face at you (no offence, Zombies, you’re beautiful!) and then say ‘Access Denied’. And it was, maybe not any more, FREE!

I also have another 3 of pictures to share with you today! Ones I have made on my iPod with another great App, called PhotoChop (not Shop). Here they are:

Hope you’re begging for another post!

Dapizz – 😀


Oh Yeah!

Hi, (what shall I call you?),

I am really happy because I have just updated my iPod Touches software to iOS4.0.2, a version of iTouch operating system which has just become immune to some .PDF related Jailbreak! Funny! Didn’t think a scan of real piece of paper had anything to do with making an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad supposedly ‘better’.

I’m really happy because, you see, when I updated the iOS to the all new iOS4 a little back I lost all of my notes, game progress* (and high-scores!), calendar dates, and bascially everything else. All the Apps were still there; just all of the data gone!

*This also meant that all of the songs I had downloaded on the Tap Tap Revenge tunes store had disappeared. Most of the songs are free for a while then paid. But because Apple were too stupid to realise it would delete all that stuff, I can’t play on loads of tracks anymore. I had downloaded loads of music on it and now I can only get excerpts, and only on some, as well. Oh, and before anyone says, I do not ever pay for songs! LOL! 😀 UUMM…

I think thats all…

Dapizz – 😀

Urgent App Recomendation

I have found two games lately which have taken over my brain! Strangely both involve ninjas and killing things!
Firstly, Ninjump, brought to us by Backflip Studios, famous for Paper Toss and Harbour Havoc 3D. Basically you are a little ninja who has to run up two walls either side of a portrait screen, jumping between the two, avoiding other ninjas, annoying little blue birds, bright orange squirrels, ninja stars and loads more. It can get ridiculously addictive and has me glued to my iPod 24/7!

Maybe not 24/7 actually, because there us another great game which has taken over my life recently too. It’s called Chop Chop Runner and is from the same people that made Chop Chop Tennis and Chop Chop Ninja. I’m surprised they aren’t called Chop Chop, Inc. In this game you are running along on grass and you have to jump from piece of land to piece of land avoiding the gaps between! On top of that you also have to kill Red Baddies, Blue Baddies, Skulls, Dark Lord Looking Things, Snakes, Robotic Scorpions, and loads more I haven’t discovered yet!

I have some pictures…
